Leo Bilker of Lake Villnge, running against J. L. Shaver who Is seeking a second term as lie\i- lemml governor, said today lie was running on a platform of "oppo- sitloji lo the kind of politics thai put Shaver in office." To whicll Shaver tartly replied that lie was running on his record with the realization that "Lee has lo have some kind of a torch to carry—all opposition candidates do." Baker said ho had been gratified by the reception lie had been getting with his campaign. "It's no secret." lie said, •Hint I'm running on n platform of opposition to the kind of administration politics Hint put Shaver in the lieutenant governor's office two years ago. "I intend to tell the voters tlial Shaver wns given the office without opposition just hecause Governor Adkins took it on himself to sen to it that every, , man who raised his head - in opposition got ordered' off. "That won't work this time—in fact, I don't think- it will be tried." Shaver said he had no apologies to make, that he was asking for a second term on thn basis of his record hs "2 fair, clean-char- dctered official who did his duty." "Lee spread the word around at Jirst that I didn't want the office again," the lieutenant governor said. "Then, when that didn't k^vork, he grabbed onto this latest Pilling. "Any lime a man runs against someone In office, he has .to have a torch to carry, you know. Well, this business about power politics is I.ce's torch he's trying to light "It's true that several fellows had been talking about running foi lieutenant governor when 1 an- noimced for the office—Join Brausford was one; Normal Moore was another—but I don' believe any of them even quail fied. "I consider it n great honor li have been elected to the seconi highest office in the state withmi opposition," Shaver said. * • * •Shaver, one of tfle most popula of state officials—(he always leave the office door open when he acting-governor in Adkins' absenc from Ihc stale)—was reporte earlier this year thinking serious! of declining lo run again. He was ill jioor health when Ih legislalive session adjourned, la year and : spent some time, .recupci ating. It bad -been a roclcy session for a senate president pro-lem loyal to Governor Adkins. In attempting lo put through ,ho. legislalive program favored, by the governor, Shaver ran up igainst a belligerent niUl-admlnis- tratlon "economy bloc" which, time afler time, lied the upper chamber in knots. The fight went on for days, Of that, controversy, Shaver had tills lo say today; When I am in the president's seat, every man has a right lo express his mind. I'm just the umpire. It wasn't r, case of my trying lo 'handle' (he senate. I Hied lo give every senator an c(|uul chance to express his views. "Some of my friends think 1 should have been tougher on the hoys. Hut I couldn't be oilier than completely fair." .- • • * » « Baker said he was prepared' to make a vigorous c.imnaign be een now and election time. "I've been going around the slate, calling on the boys in the comity courthouses," he said. "Been shaking hands with Ihe judges and sheriffs and other officials, telling 'em what I stand for.
