.WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, I'M Candidates Will |Nof Stump State jAdkins, Fulbright *To Appeal By Radio And Newspapers L1T1 LE ROCK, Aug. 2 (UP)-H I looks as If the |>re-nm off cum- Jpaign for senator from Arkansas Is I going tu be a quiet affair, at least 1 neither Congressman J. W. Ful- Ibrlghi nor Governor Homer M. I Adkins will stump the state in I search of votes. 1 But outside of Uie fact that they I won't conduct speaking tours over I the state, the campaign is showing I signs of rapidly becoming u very I hot contest. Adkins has been fir- ling broadsides at Fulbright via the I dally' newspapers for the past week. I And Fulbrlght has answered most lot the attacks word for word. 1 Both of the candidates are busy | "wooing" those voters who support- led Senator flattie W. Caraway and [Colonel T. H. Barton in the prcf- I erential primary. And they're try- I Ing lo win the votes of several [thousand voters who skipped the I preferential but will cast votes In [the run off. | Political observers believe that | next Tuesday's vote will lie much I heavier than the 185.000 preferential vole. They base their belief on tlic fact that two years ago the run off vote nearly doubled the 1 preferential vote. I An Arkansas beauty. Miss Doris I Jean Love of Joiiesboro. will speak I over the radio in behalf of Adkins 1 tonight. Miss Love holds the title I of "Miss Arkansas" and was a rim- I tier-up in famous 'Miss America" beauty contest. Adkins has also added a former Barton worker, j. c. Moore of El Dorado, to his campaign staff. And I Mrs. J. Bryan Sims, wife of the ecftM candidate for governor, will j'.'k ''n Adkins' women's division. FulbriglH will be honored nl Springdale Saturday night, and at El Dorado Friday night.
