(ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 18,19M Southern Governors Grope for Direction In 1956 Campaign By DON WII1TEHEAD POINT CLEAR, Ala. (AP) — Southern Democratic governors — without a strong man to lead them and lacking a unifying issue — are groping today for direction in the 1956 presidential campaign. This political fact became clear effort is being made from Texas in background talk which accompanied the formal opening of the 2Ist annual Southern Governors Conference attended by the chief executives of 16 Southern and border states. One Democratic governor who asked not to be named said an r BIG CHANGE—Far cry from Hie washboard Chung Sook Park was used to at home is this automatic washer. The 22- year-old Korean is studying at Columbus, Ohio, and snys the number of machines has convinced her that "everything is so-complicated" in the United States. Accident Reported In an accident yesterday at 6:30 p.m. on Cherry Street between Lilly and Holland, a car driven by Mrs. James N. White, Clear Lake Farm, collided with a car driven by Charlie Phillips, 320 S. 16th, police stated. According to police reports, the car driven by Mrs. White struck the rear end of the Phillips car as it was stopped on Cherry Street. The police report stated the Phillips car sustained damage to the left rear fender and bumper. The right front fender and headlight ot the White car was damaged. to organize a conservative Southern coalition which would be able to speak with authority In the Democratic National Convention, and thus have a strong voice in the selection of the nominee and drafting of a platform. But this source said: "The effort so far has received a cold reception." However, he said a coalition couldn't be ruled out at this early stage of the precampaign maneuvers and he wouldn't say ii could not come to pass. "\o Man or Issue" •The truth is there isn't a mai or an issue to pull these peopl into an organized bloc at this time." he said. "There's no strong leader. And I can't see any issue which is going to bring about a Southern union. (The New" York Times reported in a dispatch from Washington that Senate Majority Leader Johnson (D-Tex) is seeking to form a powerful central coalition within the Democratic party which would enable Southern conservatives to force an "open" convention, avoid an automatic nomination of Stevenson ttnd force the adoption of moderate platform.) Anyone trying to form a coalition of Southern states will have a difficult time if the temper of governors here is an accurate reflection of political though tin their home states. Already it is clear that the political lineup of the Dixie governors is taking this form: 1. One group — by far the largest — will be "loyal" to the Democratic party and its nominees, with strong indications that Adlai Stevenson is the front-running prospective candidate. 2. Gov. George Bell Timmerman Jr., of South Carolina, represents the thinking of a small number that a third party movement Is a "strong possibility." 3. Texas' Gov. Allan Shivers, who iupported President Eisenhower in 1952, is the advocate of "an Eisenhower type" Democratic nominee. He hRs announced his personal opposition to Stevenson as the Democratic standard bearer. On the Republican side, Maryland's Gov. Theodore R. McKeldin made his presence felt by declaring Eisenhower — if he doesn't run — should indicate whom he wants to receive the GOP presidential nomination. Opening their workshop discussions, the governor's considered problems of education, highways, r inances and water conservation.

Negro Deaths Janie Montgomery Services for Janie Montgomery, 84, Mass Test Of New TB Drug Planned NEW YORK l.f — The National Tuberculosis Assn. and the U. S. Public Health Service are planning a mms.s tost to find out how effectively the drug isoniazid prevents tuberculosis. The test plans were disclosed yesterday at a news conlVrence. Dr. Carrol! E. Palmer of ihe Public Health Service said the test will be conducted in a way similar to the Salk polio vaccine tests, starting within a year. Half of ihe test group will get isoniazid pills while the other half will unknowingly -jet ordinary suii- ar pills. The difference in results i between the two groups will show | the drug's effectivenes.s. j Palmer said that if the druu \ proves as effective in humans as it; has been in animals, entire populations can be protected against ihe disease at very lit lie cost, since the drug is produced cheaply. Tuberculosis now kills abo'it 20.000 Americans each year, out of 400,000 cases, Palmer inid.
