.THURSDAY. MAY 11, 19<H DONT QUOTE ME- Candidates Eye Gloomy Farmers Many Contributors To Campaign Funds f( Now Preoccupied By JIM DOWNING Un.-M I'''"* Staff Corresiioniloiil Lime ROCK. May n (U. P .)_ mo politicians would like mighty well lo see the sim shine with mid-siimmer fury for about a week at least, to uive the formers n (.•nance to get Into tile fields nml break llp the ground (or spring planting. What with the i-nln Arkansas "a.s been bathed In last few weeks, (he (jrouiul is .spongy and Heavy—too much so Jor straining mules or puffins; tractors to navigate. Consequently, j 0 lm Fanner is forced to .sit by tind watch the (lays falling oft the calendar with the knowledge thai hj s . we< | j., „„'. Planted anil that he's facing n late /nil. Moreover, many of the big contributors to political campaigns sue farmers or planters who -ire in no mood to break into smiles u-lieii the candidate comes around for a little memento to help the campaign along. Nor is the plai'i dirt farmer In a mood to talk po.'i- lles as he contemplates the seas of mud. the flooded creeks and his mules eating their heads off in the barnlot, not doing a lick i,r work. - • • * The candidates were Inking it. easy this week—on the surface— scouting around for campaign managers and headquarters and seeing a few county stalwarts to keep their fences in repair or build new ones. Bryan Sims said lie probably ||\vould name his gubernatorial cam- ~paign manager some time llvs week. "I have three on consideration " he said. "No, I don't think it will keep until Sunday—probably the latter part of the week, though." He said he was going to eastern Arkansas Wednesday and "might drop down south later 'No speeches, just talking to the boys." A MoiTilton man was being mentioned as Sims' possible choice for a manager. » • • Ben Laney of cnnulcn also was beating the bushes In eastern nnct northeastern counties early in the week. Laney said he was hoping 1o make a decision on his campaign manager perhaps this week— "that's cue. reason I'm going up there 1 '—indicating that liis manager will be drawn from the northeast quarter of the stale. Lancy said he was working on his platform hut that it would not, be released this week and "perhaps not untllv I open my. campaign." « • » Dave Terry mid liis manager-incidentally, he's the only candidate in the governor's race with a campaign manager—were down al El Dorado last week for the Army-Navy "E" award to Ozavk ^•l/rdnancc Works. TV Terry and Col. II. L. McAlister talked briefly with Lion Oil 'proxy Col. Thomas Harry Barton, the senatorial candidate, but the junket. Terry said, was "just a hand-shaking lour." His hand-shaking has been conducted pretty thoroughly through south Arkansas since he named McAlister as his aide. • • » Will Steel announced he would open his gubernatorial campaign next week at Lockesburg in Sevier county, his old home town. He wns scouting for a campaign manager, as were the other candidates. Steel, now a Texarkana lawyer, got his original Impetus in the governor's race when the Scvtcr county Farm Bureau passed a resolution urging that he considei running for the office. His campaign preparations have been quiet of late. A Many a candidate will be on hand this Friday and Saturday when the state 'bar association meets in Hot Springs . . . The Eatesville Guard, published by State Sen. O. E. Jones, is engaged in a bitter campaign against n coining locnl option election in Independence county . . . One of the wilder rumors making the rounds this week was tlie one about Dr. J. S. Rushing of El Dorado having bought a three-ring circus with which to campaign. English experimenters found that flies tend to avoid rooms with windows made of red or yellow glass. BLYTI1EVILLE (ARK.) COUIUEIf NEWS HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS Global Atlas, 1-B Army Life, And Sheridan In the Old West More by fitr than just a collection of maps and ILsts of population figures. Is Erwin Halsz's "Atlas of Global Geography" (Harper Bras.: $3.50), The ,volnmc Is a book ns well, containing much valuable information in graphic form on world problems—geopolitics, disease, hunger, poverty, nnd over-population. Foremost, the atlas brings home a fact that was drummed, into our hearts as children—that Hie world Li a globe. Use of Murca- tor projection, or flat maps, has given us a distorted picture of the world, one the author seeks to correct, largely because the development of aircraft has made our world truly globular, as well as smaller. "Curved" maps demonstrate clearly and startlingly that Minneapolis is no farther away from Japan than Is San Diego, California. An exciting and fascinating picture cook containing 6-1 pages .of maps that are distinctly new in type. And it's nil eye-opener for Ihe best-Intended Isolationists. * * * Something different In the life of a serviceman Ls "1-B'Soldier." by Private Joe Jones (Harper Bros : 52). Far from the shriek of shells,' in surroundings where the wildest cacophony came from the kitchen, Private Jones recounts a year as n soldier on the home front, 'there are no heroics, but you'll find satisfying reading Jn the record of this twelvemonth. Jones Is a good story-teller, and he presents a side of the war that hasn't been given its deserved attention. A BRACK OF THRILLERS "Escape The Night." (Random House: $2) Is Mignon G. Eber- huii's latest contribution to the gooseflesh-and-shudder set. It not. only measures up to their set of standards, but has the characters anil the human conflicts expected of a good novel as well. S.uena March returns to her home on the California coast after a four years' absence in New York, partly because slje has a vacation coming partly because friend Leda, Blagden' Das pleaded with her to do so (goings on at home and a conviction that "something is going to hap- len"), and partly because of a guy out there she lias never been able to forget. Leda proves to be right. What happens—murder — Isn't, the surprise, but the to-whom, how, and who dtmlt element'is. A group of old friends, Serena Included, are ill under suspicion, especially Serena, who has the knack of n private detective in always being on hand shortly after the killer strikes. Well-plotted, and the principals, though numerous, are made real enough • so that you'll have no trouble in keeping them straight or crooked—in your mind. Mrs. Ourrie Giles, Rufus King's gentle lady of "The Case of the Dowager's Etchings" (Crime club$2.00), puts herself In about as 1111- nsual and uncomfortable a spot as we've run across in quite a spell The wealthy old girl decides that it's unpatriotic for her to rattle about, all alone save the old family retainers, in her king-sized mansion, so she throws wide open the portals to the war workers of the town. That's asking for action, nnd she gets it. First applicant remtiuis her strongly of Jeanne Engels' portrayal of Satlie Thompson; llirn comes fl kindly middle-aged gentleman and his "nephew"—a u<d with "altar boy eyes," but hands which we suspect have c |one a bit of throttling in tlielr lime; and another lodger strongly r;>emulclj Humphrey Dogart at his grimmest, In no lime at all there's a. murder, and the crusher for Mrs. Giles is that her dearly beloved nephew Kent, a suddenly returned conquering hero, seems to be definitely connected with the killing. Mrs Giles, Impossibly naive but a lovable old duck, finds herself n pawn In n triple-cross plot, nnd the author lias you wondering whether or net she's really golji" to be rescued after nil. + * • INDIANS UITK DUST "Border command," by Cnrl Coke Ulster (University of Okln- homa Press: $2.75), is n vigorous account of Con. Philip Henry Sheridan and the era which ushered In tiic modern West. Sheridan emerged from the Civil War a one of the best generals the conflict produced. Sent to Hie West to settle the "Indian problem" by President Johnson, Slieildnn employed his edge-of-thc-sword policy and halted, In less than a dec ade, a sanguinary war \vhlch hn been going on for 40 years. Full of ncltog and good reading uy an author who has other volumes on the Indian Wars and the settlement of the West to Ills credit. * * * PEACE PLANS ' "Durable Peace," by Doss J. S Hoffman (Oxford Press: $1.75) lays down definite principles foi a permanent American foreign policy. He manages to set forth proposals which are practical nnd progressive, conservative and at the same time internationalist, traditional and anti-isolationist. The author B0 es Into (he background of World War I. country by country. He deals extensively with Russia, and declares that a lasting peace .without partnership with Kussia cannot be attained. "How can that be gained nnd held?' he asks. "Not by sycophantic licking of Stalin's boots or fntu- ously allowing our policies to be influenced by emigre radicals from Em-oiie and home-grown Communists and fellow' travelers. Indeed these are move likely to lead us to a quarrel than to an understand- ing ivldi Russin. The way lies In finding practical rclallonshtiw nnd common specific objectives, nnd above nil in resisting the lure of vengeful or sentimental purposes cross high Hussion interests. I lie same proscription applies al- fp to (lie Kussliins, mid probably iu more we observe It on our side the more they will do (he same." Professor Hoffman Is not of 'the raze- Germany- aiul-Jnpnii-to- Ihe firomul school, nnd nih'ises shrewd moderation us a course of postwar action, if perinnncnt peace is to ue attained.

But every ono ot us has a relative or close friend in uniform, and we insist on being m the fight in one way or another. Our factories and our farms are producing fiidleu streams of Bupplies for our fighting men. But that Is just the beginning. In tlwlait War Bond Drive.foresample.the people of Arkansas contributed $60,000,000— 25 per cent over the .tale quota. In Red Cross work Arkansas women are doing many thing, to smooth the way for our wounded or captured soldiers. In U. S. O. work our .women «nd girlj are doing so much to maintain the morale of fighting men. And in tlie various icrap drives, younger children help Men and women of Greyhound, like their fellow citizens of Arkansas, have shared in theteacdvities. In addition, they have been thc spejrhead in moving manpower to factories »nd farms, and in providing an all-important link between cities, war plants, farm centers and military basei.
