I. Adkins telegraphed OPA Director I.Chester Bowles at Washington, I asking Mm to visit Arkansas and investigate the situalion at first hand. ;In his telegram, Adidas said rie lias been informed that Bowles is to attend a. conference in Dallns Ihe latter part of August. And lie .urged him to slop in Little Rock ;pr Part Smith and have a talk with the Poultry Raisers Associu- \\on or the Northwest Arkansas ftlers Association. Adkins said 'would be glad to attend a meet•Irig and see if a solution could be 'louiid to problems confronting the 'poultry industry. • iTwice previously, the Govenior has asked Bowles to withdraw the charges against the poultry men. But the OPA administrator has declined to take such action. BV S. BURTON' HEATH ALBANY, N. Y—A . Short campaign and probably a red-hot one is beginning to shape up us Governor Dewey prepares methodically for his attempt to break President Roosevelt's lease on the White House. Both Ihe Republican candidate and his campaign manager, National Chairman Bromell, declined to hint about details. They s:\y nothing definite has been decided yet. I think it is safe to prophesy that the Dewey campaign will begin soon utter labor Day; that it will include one—probably, no more—ma- tor swing around the circuit; that It will rely heavily upon radio. For Die next month and a half this probably will resemble a "|)!io:iy war." president Roosevelt) will be busy as Commander-in-chief. His supporters will taunt Governor Dewey with Inaction. Mr. Dewey will go about- his chores In person and through a lot of lieutenants who will appear to have a "passion for anonymity" and reticence. But when the storm does break early in September it will be of blitz proportions, and there will be activity enough far two months to snt- Isfy the inost ambitious. There are a number of reasons for a short campaign, and the war ranks as number one. Skilled politicians believe that the public would resent a long siege of oratory avid travel in the midst of all-out war. Nor Is it necessary for Governor Dewey to set us hard a pace as lor & candidate less well known at the outset. He does not need to take weeks to introduce and identify himself; he can start right In selling his bill of goods. • This does not mean thf^ the remainder of July and the month of August will be wasted. Quite tha contrary. They already are being utilized efficiently. FOCUS ON 20 G. O. IV COVEHNOR STATES The campaign, ns has teen noint- j ed out, is planned around the 2(i states that have Republican governors, and which, in the aggregate, cast about 00 more electoral votes than Mr. Dewey would need to win, Each of these states has an aggressive, successful G. o. P. organization which elected its governor, and in turn lias been strengthened by him. Each has candidates for Senate mid House seeking election and re-election; Mr. Dewey has talked with National Committee members and state chairmen from all the states. He is meeting all 20 Republican governors in St. Louis. Slate by state, delegations of congressional candidates are calling on him. These visitors have been leaving the executive chambers loud In their praise for Mr. Dewey. They are in position to go before their constituents and remark, casually; "As Tom Dewey said to me—" or, perhaps oftener: "As I said to Tom Dewey—." Thafbnilds them up with the folks at home. It also builds up candidate Dewey. HERE'S A POSSIBLE BLITZ PLAN' Meanwhile skilled assistants who have campaigned with Dewey in other years are quietly gathering material for the bill/, in September and October, whipping It Into shape, giving the candidate opportunity to know before lie starts Into Ihe field what he has and how It can best be used. Obviously there will have to be one trip to the Pacific const. Naturally that would take one route— perhaps lite northerly one—going, and another route—perhaps the southerly—reluming. There would be stops at mnlor cities for speeches and conferences and hand-shaking. It is too early to be certain, but that one trip, plus perhaps vislls to two or tln-et! major eastern cities, and the use ci radio, might con- slilnle the campaign. Hadio will be used heavily in any event. The 0. 0. P. feels that for the first time since Franklin Roosevelt entered the scene, lie will be vip against n skilled orator who can meet him on the air without a handicap. Every altcmpt will be made to capitalize on Mr. Uewey's rf'.dio personality. Survival on Saipan Youth is Killed, Two Others Hurt Near El Dorado EL DORADO, Ark., July 2-J.
