Charles Gowen with 55,361 and 4. The other four candidates in the field of nine for the nomination, which virtually assures election in this one-party state, had fewer than 10,000 votes among them. It was the third smashing election victory in six years for Griffin, Bainbridge newspaper publisher, who was Talmadge's running mate in 1948 and 1950. He ran ahead of Talmadge in both races. He based his bid for the four- year term on his six years of apprenticeship under Talmadge and on the race issue. The Talmadge-backed constitutional amendment would permit the state to discharge its educational obligations by granting funds to students. It would wipe out a present ban on grants to individual citizens. Rep.

Fowlston's School of Music Proudly Announces MRS. W. E. HENDRIX, SR. AS A Member Of Our Piano Faculty Continued from Page 1 rules. Williams said Watkins' ruling had prevented McCarthy from answering- the charge of improperly soliciting government employes to reveal wrong-doing because McCarthy's whole case rested around another Senate precedent. On the matter of the 2$4-page PBI memorandum, Williams said, McCarthy was prevented from showing what was an "almost identical action by Congress in 1948." This action, Williams said, was taken by Vice President Nixon while a member of the House Un- American Activities Committee in a case involving Dr. Edward U. Condon, then director of the U. S. Bureau of Standards. Not in Record The 2^-page memorandum is a document which McCarthy sought to use in the McCarthy-Army hearings. It was identified then as a summary of a confidential FBI report to Army intelligence, but was never put into the record. Williams said that Nixon asked the House to order the full text of the letter produced, and argued that the presidential secrecy order then in effect was unconstitutional. While the House did not act on the constitutionality of. the order, Williams said it adopted unanimously a resolution asking for the full letter from the FBI. Watkins said McCarthy could introduce an action of the House as a proper precedent, but that a speech by Nixon or any other member of Congress was "not enough." The committee recessed at 11:45 a.m. Williams said the defense ould be ready at the afternoon session to go ahead with its testimony on the remaining two charges—that McCarthy showed contempt for a Senate committee that investigated his financial affairs and other.mat- ters in 1951 and 1952, and that he had been abusive of his Senate colleagues. Sen. McCarthy, sitting in the wit- Inass chair after the recess, told ! reporters that Watkins' ruling was i "a completely unwise ruling .... | a completely improper ruling .... a ruling in good faith." Asked if he would complete his defense testimony this afternoon, McCarthy said he had hoped to do this but could not predict "what might happen." As a witness, McCarthy had contended there was nothing wrong about his calls for information from government employes: that in fact the employees had a duty under law to give, it to him. 406 W. Main Phone 3-4591 Search Pressed For Vanished Channel Swimmer DOVER, England (.•¥) — Rescue planes and surface craft combed coastal waters today for a 44-year- old steebrorker who vanished on his second unescorted attempt to swim the English Channel. The lone swimmer was Ted May of Scunthorpe, father of nine children. The hulking 238-pounder was long overdue on his daredevil try at crossing from France with only a makeshift life raft. He failed in a similar one-man swim last month. He was picked up, exhausted, by a freighter nine hours after he struck out from France. Ditch Cleanout Contract Is Let Norman and Horn Construction Co. of Blytheville yesterday was awarded a contract- for $37,242 for ditch cleanout work west of Half Moon. The job calls for moving an es- i timated 206,900 cubic yards of dirt' and debris from Ditches 21A and 21B. The contractor has 150 calendar days in which to complete the work. Hurricane 280 Miles Off Florida Coast MIAMI, Fla. (ff) — The Weather Bureau issued the following advisory on Hurricane Edna at 5 a.m., EST, today: Radar reports from a reconnai- sance plane last night indicate Hurricane Edna is moving in a direction between north and north- northwest at about 12 miles per hour. At 5 a.m. it was centered about 280 miles e«ut of Cocoa, Pla. Highest winds are estimated at 115 m.p.h. over a small area near the center. Hurricane winds extend out 50 to 75 miles to the north and east from the center and 30 miles to i£e southwest. Gales extend 200 miles to the north and east and 100 miles to the southwest. Northerly movement at about the same speed is expected for the next 12 hours with possibly a slow turn to the north-nwtheast afterward. Small craft from north Florida to Cape Hatteras were warned to remain in port. DULLES Former Resident Gets Promotion at Penn State Jefferson D. Ashby, former Blytheville resident .has been promoted from assistant to the director of the Division of Intermediate Registration at Pennsylvania State University to assistant director of the division.

In his airport statement Dulles recalled that when he last met Chiang "China stood alone against the forces of aggression." "Now, unhappily, new aggression is rife in the world, and all who would be free are in peril," he said. "This time the Republic of China does not stand alone. The United States fleet is under order* to protect Taiwan (Formosa). "Red China is now intensifying its military and propaganda activity against free China. But we shall not be intimidated." He concluded by declaring: "The United proud to stand firm with those who, having passed through so many trials, are yet courageously sustained by a faith that will not be subdued." In their private talks Dulles and Chiang are believed to have discussed the general outlook in the Far East and the "vest pocket war" which has developed around Quemoy since Friday. Some observers speculated that Chiang pressed for a U.S. mutual security treaty linking the two nations together and urged again that his Nationalist armies be given sufficient support to invade the mainland.
