Homer Adkins tills week as tile runoff primary edged into sight around the corner—and n Fulbrlglil campaign spokesman said he couldn't imagine "what the Adkins boys have to be optimistic about." Mnrkhnin street bookies were offering three to one odtis on Fillbright for any iimount ot money and also STOIC accepting unlimited bets on Fulbrliht leading by at least 15,000 votes. None of -vhlch had any iiotlce- nble effect un (lie rtclkins campaign group who exhibited ready smiles and Inlkcd of "groundswclls" for their caiulldalc. "Once a groimdswell of thi; nature gels starlcd, there Is almost nothing you can do about it " said Joe N. Martin of Jonesboio, liie governor's secretary ivlio resigned to work on his chiefs campaign. '.'You can't slop one—and you ran'l change Ms course—after it once gets underway." , "We think this one Is going now lor Homer AUkins." Discussing the recent trend in Adkins' advertising, Mnrttn snid Hie rampntgn headquarters liiul "absolutely no Intention of engaging in a mud-slinging contest." "Mud-slinging," he said, "consists of telling untruths—or hnlt truths —about n candidate. "Fitlbriglu contends that our advertising recently has been a mucl- lnglne smear campaign. "That is not so. Th e thing we nrc trying (o show the people Is just what is in the record." As n result, ho said, "there Is a definite swing toward Adkins that can bo fell right here in Utilc Rock," Across (he street mid domi tlio block, HI Fiilbrlglit headquarters, an air ot optimism coupled ivllh tjulel vigilance prevailed. Fulbrlght, himself, charged (hat the opposition camp "has been reduced (o imul-slhifilng because they have nothing else with 'which to work." It was manifest thiil his followers were straining to prevent over- optlmLstlc workers out In (lie counties from relaxing their work, sct- Hlng back and coasting on the premise that the runoff election al- I'cady had been won. "That's what we have to guard "gainst," said a Fulbrlght partisan, "we must keep up (he good work until Aug. 8." Defeated candidate J. Rosser Venable "disclosed" today that "there's (|littc n move underway to draft me to run against, whoever is nominated In the runoff." "The business men want me to run against, cither Adkins or Fnl- .brtglit—whichever one Is winner next week—in the general election in November," he said. "And. confidentially. . ." he went on.
