MONDAY, JUNK 26, 1950 BI/rrHKVlLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THKEB Both Laney and McMath Pointing to Past Records ,-- By HARLET PKRSH1NG Of and CARL BELL Wl'llJG ROCK, June 26. (A 1 ) — This year—for the first time hi mod-; em history—Arkansas voters can choose a governor from between two men who have held the office be- j fore. : If the race Is, as expected, a showdown between the incumbent, Gov. Aid.McMath. and former Gov, Ben Laney, the citizens can mark their ballots on the basis of the candidates' comparative records in the office for which ~lhey are running. McMalh is seeking, through Democratic primary nomination, a second consecutive two-year term. Laney was governor for two terms just before McMath took over the office but did not seek re-election two years ago. These arch-rivals are pointing in their campaign sjjeeches and advertising to what they accomplished as governor—not to promises nlone. The campaign now is in the full- dress stage—McMath having formally opened his fight last Saturday night, a week after Laney's Icickoff. Before the contest got underway formally, there were predictions that hie chief issue would involve President Truman's administration ant >lxlecrat5. '. matters have been referre< to by both men, but, in speeches thus far. the candidates have concentrated on comparing their guh ematorial records. Lan*y*s Complaints Laney has criticized changes inadi in the state government since lie leJt office, notably: 1, Increased taxes; 2, Heavy state spending, and 3, Revisions in the Laney-born revenue stabilization law. He has promlscQ TO repeal an la laws passed under McMath's ad ministration and to return the slat tc A "business like" operation. McMath countered that the stat has received more help for its mane during his administration than I did during Laney's. Anolher Mc&lath battle cry hn been that more roads were built i his 18-monlhi as, governor than i four years under Laney. Laney, on the other hand, claim that not all the state's road monc has been going for highways; he ha promised that it will if he is electee fcach says he did more- than tl other to bring new industries I Arkansas and create new jobs. Each contends he is the champio of states rights and the true A kansas Democrat. FIsht Within Party £cMath, who is, a political HI : friend of President Tri man, says he can do more for slat rights by battling lor the prlncip "within the Democratic Party." He has announced opposition FEPC. socialized medicine nnd som other Truman proposals. He has referred to Limey's chai manshtp of states righters as a bo I blued total of his opponents gets | the Democratic party nomination for governor. This Is tantamount lo election Itt Arkansas. H no candidate wins a clenr-cul majority, the two top vote getteis .square off for the second primary Aug. 8. The two other candidates for governor who apparently haven't start ed full scale campaigning are: M. G, Bankson of Malvera ant J. L. Harris of Kingshmd. TO HIGH POST-BUhop Karl J. Aller of Toledo, O., has been named by Pope Pius XII as the new archbishop of Cincinnati, O., to succeed (lie late Archbishop John T. McNicholas. Archbishop Aller, 64, has headed the Toledo diocese since 1931. He lias been a leader in Catholic social welfare work. Woman Guerrilla Wants New Fight SINGAPORE —(/P)— A 72-year old' Chines woman, who led l.OC volunteer soldiers in Ihe lost ball flgainst Singapore in 1942 and wo three war medals, wants to rctur to her native China to organ!, an underground movement ngains Mao Tse-Tung's communists. Tall, lean and bespectacled Ma dame Cheong Scong Hoe. at Ilia time 64, shouldered a rifle an headed the force which include her three sons and husband. He sons fell in the battle. Before Singapore surrendered sh escaped across the mile-wide Johor Strait into Johore state, on the Malayan mainland. She joined the. Dalforce guerrillas and at the risk of her life went round collecting money, food and medical supplies for the underground fighters. The Japanese put out dragnets and finally caught her husband whom they killed. from the Democratic party. Laney said lie took the lead In the southern states rights Democratic movement in 1948 because he believed the Truman administration hud flaunted the rules of the Democratic party in Arkansas. Laney contends he had upheld all Arkansas Democratic principles. Another campaign issue between the tfvo is how each other's lieutenants operated the all-important Arkansas Revenue Department. Laney opened his campaign with a blast at the administration of that office under McMalh. Lauey said Revenue Commissioner Dean Morley. former FBI chief in Arkansas and personal friend of McMath, was not qualified for hfs job. In his campaign opener. McMath tore into the operation of the department under Laney. He charged that the office, run by Otho Cook, was ridden by scandal and the subject of a grand jury investigation. McMatli also said he^wquld stake hIJr'polftical future" ; ' F T)n tiVe'corripar-' ison' of the work by Dean Morley with that of Otho Cook."
