The real issue is not the easily expressed hopes and desires, of the candidates, but, in a few words, it is the character, the intelligence, ' the.'fraining, the all 'round ability of the man who is to represent the various interests' of Arkansas' two million people during the difficult and critical years ahead., KNOW-HOW VITAL TO GET THINGS DONE The man with" the ability to represent so many diverse interests as exist in Arkan- saV must not be simply an expert or spe- ,V J. _W/(Bill) Fulbright "i .selfish purposes is a mutter of moral character.
