WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4, 1954 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER ? PAGE THREE Sutton, Battling Kefauver, Claims Last-Minute Support of E.H. Crump NASHVILLE, Term. (APj — Rep. Pat Sutton shouted to a reporter over the roar of his helicopter yesterday that E. H. Crump, long-time Tennessee political bigwig, has given last-minute support to his bid to unseat Sen. Estes Kefauver in tomorrow's Democratic primary. JOINER NEWS A fire last week menaced the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Bowden, when a tractor fc lag refueled at the rear of the house caught fire and in turn set off the gasoline.

Jim Gunter of the Memphis Com- +• mercial Appeal reported today that Sutton told him during a flight late yesterday that Crump would make no public endorsement but had passed the word quietly to his Memphis organization. In the old days before Kefauver turned Crump's "pet-coon" epithet into a campaign asset in 1948, even such quiet support from Crump as Sutton said he had could almost assure victory for a hardworking candidate. Rough Campaigns Button's mid-air announcement was the latest bizarre note in a Senate campaign or gimmicks, name calling and high-tension stumping that has competed for headlines with one of the roughest gubernatorial campaigns in the state's history. The winners in the Democratic primary are virtually assured of election in November in predominantly Democratic Ten-j nessee. In the contest for Tennessee's first four-year governor's term, former Gov. Gordon Browning is trying to oust Gov. Frank Clement —with assists from members of Clement's own official family. Clement ousted Browning two years ago. A third 'Candidate, Judge Raulston Schoolfield of Chattanooga, is campaigning almost-entirely on his promise to retain segregation in Tennessee public schools regardless of a Supreme Court ban. Browning also has taken a pro- segregation stand, while Clement has said only that school segregation would continue at least until the court opinion is clarified. Both Secretary of State G.-Edward Friar and the state comptroller. Mrs. Jeanne Bodfish, have aired their rift with Clement in the final weeks of the campaign. Both were leaders in his*1952 campaign.

He has accused Kefauver of being an internationalist, a "one- worlder" and a left-winger. He invites comparison of his farm, veteran and antisubversive legislative record with that of Kefauver. Kefauver retorts that Sutton has failed to take part in important congressional votes, has introduced House measures designed to hinder deportation of criminals, and has accepted campaign aid from sources outside Tennessee. There are no Republican candidates for governor and of the two men listed as GOP candidates for senator, one says he will not run if nominated. That's Ray Jenkins, who gained national prominence as special counsel in the recent Army- McCarthy hearings. Jenkins said that by mistake he failed to notify officials to pull his name from the ballot and thus, Robert Gregory, Memphis, declares he should be automatically the winner.
