PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEW! Ballot Proposal Runs Into Snags Arkansas Democrats Not Likely to POM On Truman Candidacy By Bob Brown {United Preu Staff Ctrn»f»nttnt) LITTLE ROCK, Mar, K. (UP) — Two prominent Democrats doubted today that Arkansas citizens could vote upon the question of Instructing presidential electors under provisions of state election laws. Such i vote was suggested by the Jackson County Democratic Cojn- mitlee as a i>art of the August primary. Arthur Adams of Jonesboro, state Democratic chairman, admitted that in the p&tt It has been the policy of the state Democratic convention to Instruct electors to support the party nominee. He sold, however, that there Is no provision In either the party rules or slate law which says the electors thall or shall not be Instructed. "The. place to decide that is on the convention floor,' Adams said.' He described the convention as a "free agent" and said It could change the rules so that a primary election on electors could be held. "That could not be done before this Summer's primaries,' he said, "as the convention does not meet until September." Oov. Ben Laney also pointed to , present rules and said he would like to see the electors nnmrd by j popular vote, "But I cannot change the laws." The governor defended a recym- menditlon by * group of Southern governors under which electors would be permitted to support some nominee other than President Truman. "It was simply a suggestion and in 110 wny binding on the people of Arkansas," he uid, "but it could be a powerful weapon If any state chose to use It."

U.S. Air Force Asks Manufacturers How Fast They Can Expand Output Vandals Overturn 79 Cemetery Monuments KNOXVUiLE, Term,, March ». (UP)—Vandals made a prt-diwn raid on a cemetery here yesterday overturning 19 large family monuments. Detective Chief O. B. Wells, said he believed the Job was done 3y "young wild teen-agers", and he was biuy getting fingerprints from the toppled (tones this morning. None of the graves had been disturbed. Wells said it would have required "a half dozen strong men" to uproot anyone of the large stones. Apparently no personal or family grudge was Involved. The monuments belonged to a variety ot fam- ily'lots. B; Charle« Corddrr United Press Aviation Writer WASHINGTON, March 25. (UP) —The Air Force has asked aircraft manufacturers how fut they coutd expand to full-scale war production If it should become necessary, It wu learned yesterday. Tlil< was disclosed u the nation's military leaders prepared to go to Congress to ask for an Increase of as much as $10,000,003,000 in the defense budget now before tlie legislators. A considerable part of such an Increase presumably would <o into aircraft purchases. The Air FVjrce hM kept check on the aircraft Industry's overall expansion possibilities since the war ended. Bui new inquiries prompted by the tense International situation, were said to call for far more detailed and up-to-date Information. Individual companies reportedly hnve been asked how fast they would expand production of specific types of bombers, fighter* anil other military planes that have been under development since th« war. Information concerning manpower requirements, machine tools, materials, stockpiles and other matters also reportedly was being sought. President Truman diseased military budget Increases yesterday with defense chiefs and Budget Director Jiimcs E. Webb. No official information was given out, but plans for the air force were said to call for 70 groups—It now has S5. At proposed peacetime production levels, It would take five years to build such an air force of 20,400 planes and a modern naval atr arm of 14.SOO planes, according to tha Congressional Aviation Policy Board.
