COURIER NEWS DONT QUOTE ME- Rushing At Head Of filing Line Would-be Candidate ^Changes Mind When Dentist Enters Race PAGE "Ancient Fountain Becomes Baptismal Font By JIM BROWNING Dniled Press Slaff Cornesiiondt LITTLE HOCK, May 1 (OP) — Closing or Ihe Democratic Primary ticket last week answered many 'questions troubling political operators and observers, but It left sllll other questions hanging wlilioul solutions. The tast-minute filing of Dr. J S, Rushing of El Doracto, n denllst, as ' gubcrnatoi-lal candidate saveii •another potential candidate from Celling in that race, well-informed sources disclosed. i They said that friends of tlie man .who di ( | «"l r»c had just imivcd in the lobby of (lie Marlon Hole) where Secretary Harvey G. Coihbs of Die state Democratic Committee is receiving last minute filings when Dr. Kusliing, at Ihe hend o! (lie line, paid his fee. When ivord of his action spread down the line, the would-be cEiudi- dale's friends quietly dropped ou of the queue. Their purpose, it was asserted, had been lo make cerlaii .there would be at least llirce cnn- .dldates seeking tlie gubcrnatorta nomination in the preferential primary if any two of the four who announced first ^decided to drop out Rushing, in becoming a lasl-min :iitc candidate, took political observers by surprise—and dopestcrs stil have not been able to figure ou exactly what prompted his en trance. The dentist, a former resident ol Mena, has lived in El Dorado for several years, building up a coasiderabl e fortune on oil investments. £jyith the filing of Mrs. Jack "lies of Camdcn for Democratic National Commlttcewoman, and Dr. Rushing of El Dorado for governor, the press of candidates from that particular section of soulh Arkansas prompted a Markliam street .wag to remark that the state capital probably would lie moved soon I to a point mid-way between Cam- l!dcn and El Dorado. To back up his contention, lie I pointed out that Col. Tom H. Bar- Iton of El Dorado, is-a senatorial I candidate; John L. McCicllan of I Camden is in the senate. Dr. n. B. I Robins of Camden is seeking the I post of National Conimittceman, land Ben Laney of Camden wants I to be governor. Moreover, Floyd Stein of ,E1 Dor- lado Is seeking the office of ,Attor- 1 ney General and Congressman Orcn I Harris of El Dorado is after re- I election to the House; Lamar ISniead of Camdcn and John M IShackleford of El Dorado are run- Ining for 13th district prosecuting I attorney; Slate Sen.

SVns, Ben Laney, Will Steel and bllflushlng have yet to name their campaign managers, but are expected to do so shortly. Sims is rc- boiied to have selected his manager .with a view of dispelling the belief that he Is the administration candidate. ' The scramble for campaign man- igers was reaching an alltime high :his week. f Many of the men generally associated with campaigns are busy on iiiore important jobs this year and Inost candidates are shopping fiir- jously for capable ringmnsters. ! Requirements are many. A good fampalgn manager mast know most i>f the leading political figures in bvery county.

He must be fairly well known ihroughout the state. He should lave had a couple of successful campaigns under his belt to prove worth and instill confidence. He should be a master at obtaining fund, followers and publicity. 'He must be able to take the time away from his own business or pro- "csslon to give all for his candidate. He should, although it lias not always been the case, be confident of his candidate's winning liis particular race. Such men are few and far between even in peace time. Today, with the war demanding so much of talented men, the crop is extremely meagre. The candidates arc finding it so, anyway.
