BLTHIET1LL1 (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 19W Dewey's Withdrawal Said Sign of Plan For Presidential Race WASHINGTON (AP) — The withdrawal of Gov. Thomas E. Dewey from the New York governorship picture was regarded by most politicians here as intended to be only a temporary retirement from active politics.

He announced in a statewide broadcast from New York last night that ''not under any circumstances" will he be a candidate this fall for a fourth term as governor, or for any other office. Perhaps significantly, he said in his announcement that in private life he would "continue to take an active interest in the cause o, good government and enlightened 3547 3505 3539 ] public policies." He said he would 3570 3524 3561 New Orleans Cotton Oct 3433 3470 3433 Dec 3469 3507 3467 Mch 3503 3550 3507 May 3532 3567 3527 3464 3499 3540 3565 Chicago Soybeans Sept ... 301 301 296V-2 Nov ... 275 276 2 A 273*4 Jan ... 278& 279& 276% Mch ... 280 282 279y 4 299 J ,4 275 ~ 277 3 280% Chicago Wheat Sept ... 218 J /-> 218% Dec ... 222% 222% 216% 220% 218^4 222% Chicago Corn Sept ... 163~/s 164 Dec ... 156% 156% 164 156% New York Stocks (12:45 quotations) A T and T 172 1-4 Amer Tobacco 59 1-2 Anaconda Copper 40 1-4 Beth Steel 76 1-2 Chrysler 66 Coca-Cola 114 5-8 Gen Electric 43 1-2 Gen oMtors 80 1-2 Montgomery Ward 75 N Y Central 21 Int Harvester 325-8 Republic Steel 61 7-8 Radio 33 Socony Vacuum 45 7-8 Studebaker 94 3-4 Standard of N J 114 5-8 Texas Corp 74 5-8 Sears 68 1-2 17 S Steel 54 Sou Pac 44 1-8 be "actively in the campaign to elect my successor." In Washington GOP circles, including those close to President Eisenhower, the general expectation was that IT. S. Sen. Irving M. Ives will become his party's candidate — however reluctantly — for governor of New York. Ives need not resign his Senate seat to make the race, and if nominated and elected, he could name a Senate successor to serve until the next election. Ives has said repeatedly, reiterating it shortly before Dewey's broadcast, that "I am not a candidate." Might Try Senate Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111.

The eight countries also approved a "Pacific Charter" for this region. Proposed by the Philippines, the document upholds the principle of equal rights and self- determination of peoples in th area. It says the signers will work by peaceful means "to prornot self-government and secure inde pendence of all countries whos people desire it and are able t undertake its responsibilities." There seemed little doubt that Dewey, retiring after 12 years in the gloomy mansion at Albany, would remain a close adviser to Eisenhower and the national administration. As one who helped get Eisenhower in the race for the GOP nomination in 1952 and who has had the White House ear since, he remains one of the relatively small group to whom Eisenhower might turn for a recommended successor if the President decides not to run again in 1956. If Eisenhower does try again, some thought Dewey might run in 1956 for the Senate seat now held by Sen. Herbert Lehman (D-Lib- NY). In Denver, where he is summering, Eisenhower expressed regret over Dewey's decision—a regret obviously shared by many Republicans who felt that the New York prizes in this year's battle for control of Congress may have receded somewhat with Dewey's name off the ballot. New York Republicans will nominate a candidate for governor in their Sept. 22-23 convention at Syracuse. - There was a note of optimism among some of the party faithful who saw Ives as potentially a better candidate" than Dewey. Their arguments: Ives has not collected Dewey's enemies. He has no connection with the racing and other scandals that have rocked New York. He is more attractive to organized labor than Dewey and thus might run better than most Republicans in New York City, where the Democrats have their stronghold. Rep. Franklin- D. Roosevelt Jr. (D-NY) and Averell Harriman, former mutual aid chief, have been mentioned most frequently for the Democratic nomination. Mayor Robert F. Wagner of New York City has also been mentioned. Gubernatorial Nominees Seek Drought Aid LITTLE ROCK M— Both Republican and Democratic nominees for governor are calling for quick action and more relief for drought- suffering farmers in Arkansas. The Republican candidate for governor, Little Rock's Mayor Pratt Renimel, has wired Agriculture Secretary Benson asking for all forms of direct aid available ;o drought - designated counties, ^emmel called the drought situation in Arkansas "urgent." The Democratic nominee, OrVal Faubus, who flew to Washington ] yesterday, will meet with Agricul- ure officials today to ask for larger grants and direct relief for drought-stricken farmers and live- tock raisers. Joining with Faubus n the meeting are members of Arkansas' Congressional delegation and representatives of the feed and poultry industries in the state. Faubus said yesterday federal allotments for plantings of winter cover crops have been increased 25 per cent. Faubus said, "There now is $2,000,000 available in 1954 federal funds for winter crop plantings."

Thirty-seven counties already have received the designation and all but one of the 75 counties have requested federal aid. Wont to Get Away from It AH?

Tom Downie, legal advisor for the board, said he had advised the Board that it was under no legal obligation to integrate as soon as possible. However, he told Braton the Board Former Senator Wins in Arizona Governor's Race PHOENIX, Ariz. L^—Ernest W. McFarland, staging a spectacular political comeback, today holds would take the request for action under consideration. Further comment was declined. The' meeting with the school board was requested in petitions filed Aug. 24. The petitions were filed by Braton on behalf of 20 Negro residents of Sweet Home and College Station. They requested a hearing "on devising and implementing a program of desegregation." Jackie Shropshire and Thad D. Williams, Little Rock attorneys, also represented the petitioners. Braton is chairman of the state Legal Redress Committee of the National Association for the advancement of Colored People. Williams, critical of Downie's statement on the Board's obligation said, "It is my opinion that the May 17 ruling has laid down organic law—saying that segregation is illegal." Continued improvement of Negro schools in the district was asked by Williams. He also requested that the Board consider the integration of white and Negro teachers a part of the total desegregation plan.

(^I—Hurricane Edna appeared to be swinging a bit to the north today on a course that may lessen the chances of Florida being hit by its savage 115 mile per hour winds. At 8 a.m. EST the season's fifth hurricane was 270 miles due east of Miami and about 120 miles northeast of Nassau, Bahamas. Grady Norton, chief storm forecaster at the Miami Weather Bureau, said "The slight shift to a more northerly course has lessened the possibility of the storm hitting the Florida coast." But he warned' that the storm was "moving very slowly and somewhat erratically and would, have to be watched closely." A special bulletin said if the present course was maintained 'the danger of reaching the Florida coast is greatly lessened." Early morning reports indicated dna. was drifting north-northwest and interests in the northern Bahamas were told to continue precautions. MCCARTHY (Continued from Page W sitting on his right and said further: "You see, I told you this is what we'd get." Zwicker was then commander of Camp Kilmer, N.J., where Peress had been stationed. McCarthy contended at the time that Peress should have been court-martialed instead of being given an honorable discharge. Peress, as a witness before McCarthy, has refused to answer questions as to whether he had had Communist associations. He pleaded the Fifth Amendment which says no person is required to testify against himself. Williams asked the committee 'to take notice" that the incident was in the morning session, and that the stormy exchanges in which McCarthy denounced ZWick- er did not take place until 4 p.m. that afternoon.

Ghemquasabamticook, Ronkonko- zna, Minnewaska, Passadumkeag —• New England lakes named by Indians long ago. People go there on vacation and friends write to them there, often without even naming the state. What's worse, the friends even misspell the names.
