TEN BLYTHEVTLI.E (ARK.) COUTUER NEWS McMath's 'Non-Political' Tour Covers Much of Arkansas By HAKl.KV PKKSHIN'O *• LITTLE ROCK, May 25. (/P>— Governor McMath, like President Truman, has been making numerous public appearances which he de- (crlbei as non-pollllcal. McMalh says he doesn't plan to itart campaigning actively for reelection until late In June, but his trips around Arkansas since March have touched all sections. However, his visits to the more than 90 (owns have been by invitation. They have come from church groups, parent-teachers associations, conventions, civic clubs, farm groups and youth organizations. Turned Down Few He has turned down very few invitations since early spring. McMath said the trips have nothing to do with his approaching campaign against former Gov. Ben T. Laney for the Democratic nomination. " tours are lion-political," McMath told newsmen. '"These trips have given me an excellent opportunity to talk and visit with the people of Arkansas." "I think the governor should know what's going on over the slate and see as many people as he can. Many of the folks can't come to the state capitol and I think a governor ought to go lo them." Delails Not Announced While the governor hasn't announced full details of his campaign, he will have to hit a fast clip to keep up wilh his schedule of the past three months. Frequently McMath has dropped by his office at 9 a.m., spent a few minutes talking with visitors, hopped a plane lo speak at a civic luncheon In North Arkansas and then flown to a South Arkansas fosvn for an address before a church group or PTA meeting the same day. The governor has a map In his office showing every town touched in his tours and those he expects to visit before opening his campaign Places Visited These- are some of the places McMath has visited: Bentonville, Gentry, Sprlngdale.
