"I nolice by my chief opponent's funny paper that he Is very much in favor of a traditional second term," former Gov. Ben Laney told an audience nt Lake Village last night. (The "Tunny paper" is a booklet In comic book form In behalf of Governor McMath's campaign for renom (nation.) "Yet on the other hand, he is opposed to most other traditions of the South," Laney declared. "Traditions Are Gone" "It was In a .speech at Indianapolis thai Traditional Sid' said 'the traditions of the South are gone. 1 " Laney spoke at the Chicot County scat in behalf ol his bid for a third teroi in the governor's office, which he voluntarily relinquished two years ago. ie told his listeners—c-stimalcd at 1,500—that if he's relumed to Ihc governor's office he'll work for an Interconnected drainage .system for Southeast Arkansas.

They must "cool off" until July 15. The officer.-; ol the two unions made a joint statement saying the June 15 findings an "insult" to railroaders, ns well as the "most unjust, unfair, inequitable and injurious report" by the emergency board since enactment ol the railway labor law. Unions Said Ready F. H. Nemilz, chief of the conductors, and W. P. Kennedy, head of the trainmen, said their unions •/ere "ready to use economic itrength, if necessary, to force a air settlement of the SfAue-s." The Presidential board April 19 recommended lo President Truman hat the switchmen be awarded a 40 hour week and aii 18 cents an nour wage hike. The switchmen want a 40 hour week with the pay hey now get for a 48 hour week. ftnosl Not Specific The fact-finders on June 15 specifically did not recommend boost for the trainmen and conductors when they recommended a 40 hour week and 18 cents an hour to 75,000 yard employes. The 125,000 members of the trainmen's and conductors unions also wanted sliding scales of pay rate- c depending on weight of locomolives and a reduction of the basic day from Ihc present 150 miles or 7 1J2 hours to 100 miles or five hours. The trainmen and conductors did not actually set a strike date. They will meet in Chicago July 10. Fu lure action will be mapped then. -'MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 22.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 22. (AP)—Secretary of Stale Aclicson declared today thn United States and its Allies "are on the threshold of a new period" in their quest for peace. Despite the obstacle posed by the "inordinate ambition" of Soviet leaders, lie .said, war in not inevitable. "We arc building our strength," Achcsun suit! in a speech prepared for the Harvard University Alumni Association, "In order that we may eliminate Hie conditions which would give rise to war, and .we arc on the threshold of a new period In tlic successful forward movement of this effort. Vulure With Confidence "We face this new period with confidence, hut we must be very clear in our minds about our purposes In times that lie ahead." Declaring that 11 Is "the determined purpose of this country, and of the like minded nations working with us, to prevent war," Achcson asserted: "Wc,,do not arm for purposes of conquest. Our strength b a shield, whose purpose is twofold. "First, our strength Is essential to a progressive and. successful resolution of the difficulties which today beset the International community. "The second purpose of our strength Is to enable us to carry ahead a creative relationship with the other nations of the free world." Democracy Is Dynamic.

The secretary spoke on the third anniversary of the day on which his predecessor, Gen. George C. Marshall, proposer! the European Recovery Plan that hears his name —also in a speech at Harvard. Strength Ksscnllal Achcson said that while strength may now he essential to a settlement of the world problems, It 'Is not a substitute for discussion ana accommodation." And he expressed hope that a healthy European community will he the determining factor In bringing "greater progress In settling differences In the world. The efforts of the non-Communist nations to establish a firm peace, Acheson said, have been confronted with a single great obstacle: "The Inordinate ambition of the Soviet leaders, which Is based on their delusions about the non-Communist world.' He added: "A.s the lenders of the Soviet Union come to appreciate that their analysis of the world situation, and their policies flowing from that analysis, have been Incorrect, the possibility for reasonable settlc- menl.s of matters affecting the stability nnd progress of the international community will increase. Soviet Must Accept "Until the Soviet leaders do genuinely accept a 'live and let live' philosophy, then no approach from the free world, however imaginative, ana no Trojan dove from the Communist movement, will help to resolve our mutual problems. "Tills does not mean that discussion should not- take place or that every effort should not be made to settle any questions which arc possible of settlement. 'It Is our policy to be. as General Marshall put It. the first to attend at international conference tables, and the last to retire." Acheson recalled Ihe speech in which Gen. Marshall proposed the, European Recovery Program, and acclaimed it as one of the major steps In the development of an active American policy toward Soviet communism.
