JIONUAY/APIUL 24, 19-J4 DONT QUOTE ME- Terry Backers Were Undecided Observer Says Group Couldn't Decide On • Any Other Candidate By JIM DOWNING hilled Press Stuff Correspondent LITTLE HOCK, April 24 (U.P )The entrance ol Dave Terry into the gubernatorial campaign "gave a lot of undecided folks a place lo light," a well known political ieurc asserted this week: Tiie spokesman, who refused to illow his name lo be used, said a number of leaders of one faction or another "had been sliop- liiiB around, hunllng a candidate who fitted into tlielr picture." "Until Dave sot in, lliev weren't satisfied with the situation. Now, they're re;i<ly to (jo into oellon," lie said. * • • What, appeared to be Active pai- .Icipallon in Terry's campaign by wo U. S. Employment Service men vas seen nl mid-week in northeast Arkansas. !One man who was called into a USES field officer "lo meet a :ouple of fellows" was asked aftei- ivarcLs' If they had sold him on Terry for governor. "No," lie said. "Ihcy didn't convince me." Activity around War Manpower Director Floyd Sharp's vicinity nade il appear to one veteran po- itlcnl observer Dial "Sharp'.'; back :rs are carrying some mighty big .orclies for Dave Terry." It was considered highly likely that Sharp supporters had decided an Terry afler Ihe WMC licn'l bowed out or the gubernatorial race. BLYTJIEV1LLE (AUK.) COU1UEU NEWS _ Ben Lnney, gubernalor- candirtale from Camden, has said publicly lliat he was not asking for help from Sen. jolm" McClellan in his campaign, his parti-' iiins were of (lie opinion this week reasons for pulling a friend info Ihc governor's office this year. One summed it up tills way: "Jolm probably isn't particular ly interested in tlie senate race tills year because if the winner is anyone olher llian Mrs. Caraway, lie will be senior senator. But he will be running for re-election four years from now—and Ihe governor would be the logical candidate to oppose him. if Dave Terry or Bryan Sims .or Will Steel ,or .•joineboriy else goes in as governor, McC:cll&:i can expect to have to run against Ihe mtm r ln,19-18. BuVii his friend 3cn Laney becomes governor, with iiis help, lie can, be pretty. Mire he-won't have to face him in the ieiiai^e race. r "Jolui must tyi miist be*.turning- those thoughts over in his mind iiu • in Washington Ihese days." • Laney went to northeast Arkansas late in the week but expected o'be back in town lo watcli the ast-jnmutc rush of candidates before the ticket closes Wednesday. He said tlic note in this column week about Arthur Adams of lered as a la^, week about Arthur jjltsboro bctng consid campaign manager "wasn't far wrong" but no decision had been made. Hep. Roy L. Riales. farmer-legislator from Polk county, expects to return to life House seat this year without opposition lor a fifth term. He said he expected to campaign for Speaker of the House — (lie pot held last year by Rep. R W. Griffith of Little Rock. Riales was badly bruised last ivcck when n bus loaded with Polk bounty draftees overturned cnroulc from Mena lo Litlle Rock. He is in a station hospital at Camp Robinson. Riales Is the second legislator lo innouncc -for House Speaker.' The other candidate is Hep. Nelson Cox if Onchita county. Riales sairt he already had ten pledges from fellow representatives. ; Whether Cox would continue to campaign for the office in view )f tlie fact that his fellow townsman, Ben Laney, is running for Mtrnor, lias not been made public. Sen. Lee Reaves of Hermitage aid last week that if a candidate innounccd in opposition to O. E. Jutes —who is seeking Ills upper louse scat—lie would resign from he office. "But I'm not going to just give t lo Gales on a silver plalter," he aild. "I've got a commission wail- ng for me and I'd like to get ;o!ng, hut I'm sort of wailing to ice if perhaps someone won't gel n the fracas against Orion," Good Olrl 'Chute EXCELSIOR SPRINGS. Mo.

Mr. Machotka, -_ one of the .outstanding cluhs lor a city of 'its size in this region, consisting of 14. state, J. P. Machotka, assistant regional supervisor of tho ' national committee of YMCA told tlie Courier. News Sat- . , formerly YMCA secretary in Czechoslovakia, also served for four .years • as student secretary at ' the University of .Athens. Greece. .and civilian secretary of the YMCA there. In Chech- oslovakia following ' the close of World War I, Mr. Machotka's duties were tq set up YMCA huts, wh'icil arc similar to Ihe, recreation hall established in camps throughout this nation, ami to introduce American games and establish an athletic program among the young people. .All 'Yankee -. sports' except baseball were enthusiastically received by the - Czech youth, Mr. Macholka said. Baseball was. considered "too rough," the sportsters preferring, a combination of football and soccer which involved a great deal of -kicking,, running and broken limbs.' Americans ' becoming interested in developing the youth of that nation, financed the construction In Czech cities of eight YMCA buildings which 'havii been taken • over as. Gestapo, headquarters.. "During there from my 1018 three-year slay lo 1922 Czechoslovakia was one of the best .,.„ amplcs of a dynamic and progressive social democracy that we have had in the world". Mr. Machoika said. Greatly, impress with -. the Czechs and their ability to govern themselves senslbiy, Mr.. Machotka blamed the'invasion of that peaceful country-on 'the unlimited use by the Germans of propaganda and spy activity to spread hate and imhappiness among the people. "This wll'l be a blackcd-ou't generation in Greece", Mr. Machotkn warned as he reported that only one out of 20 babies born in that country now survive, "And the small pcrcenlagf. that lives through infancy will probably not be able to withstand the starvation and suffering to which the people' of that nation .are being subjected." the YMCA leader said. Mr. Machotka. who supervises the personnel, finances programs and public relations of USO clubs in four states, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Eastern Kansas, and Southern Missouri, met Friday night with the operating committee of the local USO club, of which Rosco Crafton dcrslgncd mortgagee In u morlKagc executed by Sidney Honey lo Ihe United Stales on' the 2-1 day of Mnrcli, 19-M, nncl duly filed in the office of Ihc Recorder-In mid for Mississippi County, Arkansas; the aiid Sidney Honey having waived nil being offered In Ihe local club j^mptlo.umrtcrlluilnws oflheSlale Week-end attendance in the club ^ 1 ,^!i' ls '! s;11> ! ll ' S ,\' nllt( '°"! c "? vs ?, l ' s here averages 650 lo 700, and lills the 200 mark during week days, and nights, the leader reported.
