Workers dug into the ground around (lie track and found the water, and today both Frisco Riul city employes aided in the cftort to find the source of the leak. The side track extends from about 150 feet south of the depot to 20 feet north of the crossing. Principal delay was caused when trains were backed onto the main line at the station. O. P.

Fulbright, who won the Democratic nomination for United States Senator from Arkansas by a "landslide" Tuesday, says he shouldn't be classified nn- ttcr any political category. The young congressman, who will undoubledly win election in November, says he objccls to being classified as cither a liberal, progressive or conservative. He says: "As far as business Is concerned, I probably would be clasific-d as a conservative. While In the matter of International affairs I probably belong In the progressive group. But I object strenuously to being put under any of these Inclusive names." As for the New Deal, Fulbright says he likes some ol the things It lias done, and deplores other actions It has taken. weather because of rail expansion. The former University of Arkan- president, says his victory at later appointed chairman of a del' the (rails Tuesday wasn't a victor;, for any class, organized labor, agriculture or business. "I had support from all groups, and I expect lo be fair to all," he says. Fulbright will probably have his eye set on the influential Senate Foreign Affairs Commiltce when he lakes his scat In January. But membership in the committee will depend on whether Iherc are vacancies and whether others with seniority displace him. When he entered Congress a year and a half ago he found a House foreign Affairs Committee wilh five vacancies and was appointed a member. He first won attention for an exchange of words with Con- gresswonian Clare Booth Luce and later with his famous "Lasting Peace' resolution. Fulbright was egalion lo a London conference on educational rehabilitation. He served as chairman during the conference. < -"»i Although Fiilbrifjht won't be 40 until next April D. he won't be the youngest U. S. senator Arkansas has sent to Washington. A. H.
