MONDAY, AUGUST 9, 1904 BLYTHEVILLE (AES.V CO'UKlER N' PAGE THREE Last Round Coming Up In Gubernatorial Fight (Continued from Page 1) monwealth College issue. Notable among these is the administration's welfare policies, Cherry's former espousal of the proposed "100 per cent" property tax amendment which will be voted on at the November general election, and the governor's alleged responsibility for increased utility rates. Cherry, besides defending his own record, has lashed back at Faubus for the latter's connection with highway affairs during the administration of former Gov. Sid McMath, whom Cherry defeated for a third term two years ago. Highway operations were looked into by the Highway Audit Commission early in 1952. Faubus, once a highway commissioner and later highway director, has said that even the "politically-rigged" Audit Commission didn't accuse him of any wrongdoing. Cherry has charged that Faubus' associates constitute a "wrecking crew" which wants to again get control of the state government. And in turn Faubus has said that some of the Cherry backers aren't too savory themselves. Cherry and Faubus met yesterday, shook hands and then settled down to a half hour of joint Questioning on '.'Weekend Press Conference" of Television Station KATV here at Little Rock. The questioning, which was done by four Little Rock newsmen, brought out little new. Mainly the two candidates rehashed their previous charges and countercharges. They disputed each other openly but maintained at least an outward good humor. • One question elicited from Faubus the statement that he would not permit gambling in Hot Springs if he becomes governor. And Cherry confirmed for the first time that he had a hand in the present several-month-old shutdown of gambling operations. He recalled that he had said he wouldn't intefere in local situations "as long as they didn't become embarrassing to the state." Apparently he thought Hot Springs gambling had become embarrassing. He said he had consulted with local officers before the lid wa s clamped on. After yesterday's TV appearance, Cherry answered Faubus' charge of Saturday night that paving was being done in Van Bur en without public notice of contract letting. The governor cited page 6B of the Arkansas Gazette of July 12, 1954. as containing an advertisement of the bid. Cherry also said that Faubus had admitted on the panel discussion that under present Arkansas law no governor could have prevented utilities fr,om putting higher rates into effect under bond. A car-caravan of Cherry backers will accompany the governor from Little Rock to Searcy tonight where he will make a speech. Faubus followed the TV panel discussion with a TV program of his own in which he charged that Cherry has "swung the power s of state government behind special interests." Faubus and his wife also held open house at a Little Rock hotel yesterday. Today Faubus will speak at Forrest City and Marianna and will wind up his campaign tonight in Cherry's home city of Jonesboro. In contrast to the heated governor's race, only one other major state office will be decided between two candidates tomorrow. State Treasurer J. Vance Clayton is opposed by a familiar opponent— Sam Jones of Little Rock. And there has been little noise from either of them. Jones opposed Clayton for the treasurer's Job in 1950 and was defeated. There is no opposition in four other state offices. Those candidates—all incumbents—are Lt. G Nathan Gordon, Secretary of State C. G. Hall, Auditor J. Oscar Humphrey and Supreme Court Associate Justice George Rose Smith. Names which will appear on the ballots tomorrow are those candidates who either are not opposed or, are opposed by one opponent. The ballot also will include candidates in races in which one aspirant did not receive a majority in the preferential primary two weeks ago. Five Arkansas congressmen were unopposed this year. They are E.G. Gathings of West - 'emphis, Wilbur D. Mills of Kensett, J. W. Trimble of Be"ryville, Brooks Hays of Little Rock and W. F. Norrell of Monticello.
