WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 19<M DON'T QUOTE MB- Fulbright Leads Opponents In JLU. Vote Pol! Adkins Press Agent Says The Governor A Cinch To Win Hy JIM IXIWVING Umlril t'roxs Staff Correspondent UTTLK ROCK. May 30 IU1>) — Gleeful .supporters of Congressman J, W. Hill FulbiiKht were crowing (!iis week over the results of a recent University of Arkansas student poll taken by the Arkansas Traveler — (lie student weekly — which gave Piilljriglit a whopping bit; majority over Ills opponents in (lie senatorial race. The newspaper reported its findings ;after polling Olio students nn Ihc senate ciucstlon. Fiilbrighl received 338 votes and his nearest rival. Sen. Ilattie W. Caraway, polled twelve. Oov. Homer M, 'Adkins followed with nine, Col. T. H. liar Ion of El Dorado took seven, and J. RrjEscr Veniiblc received none. Political observers made no effort to weigh the significance of Die poll, except to point out that Fulbright—whose home is in pay- cUcvllie—was president of tlie University until ii e was dismissed in 1041. .shortly after Governor Ad- Jiins took office. There being little in the way of real political news last week, candidates and their representatives relieved tli c tedium by forecasting landslides ami interpreting the breezes to their own ends. Like Glenn A. "Bud" Green, for Instance. The astute state publicity! man who is Governor Atlkins 1 nominal press agent, asserted that "the bass" was "the nearest thing to a t 'ad pipe cinch you'll ever see in rfcansas." Newsmen asked for details. "Well," he said, "everv person of consequence who was with the BOV crnor the first time lie ran is with him right now in this senate race. "Not only that, but he has a lot of other people wiih him now. His record In office Is his hole card in thi s campaign. The people know he has given them a good administration. "Furthermore," Green said, "you will see his strength increasing as he gets into the campaign. Right now. he is actually too darned busy I working at being governor to do a lot of politicking." "I'm 11 chosen man—a cinch. I'm (ho best innn in Arkansas 'for yoil to bet your money on. They can't stop me." So said Clyde E. Byrd, incumbent state senator from El Dorado who is .seeding re-election. ""Ilus is going to be the easiest campaign of my career," he said. I "I'm just the same as back in of-' fice for another four years." Reason for allj;)ie sup,er-p|)timism. •—he has no opponent. Ben Lancy cliosc an interesting .spot for his campaign-opening address— Conway. Reason is that Con- wa v is the home town of Col. H. L. McAlislcr, campaign manager for David D. Terry. Laney's opponent ijl the gubernatorial race... im\ veteran political observer, says Ine manpower situation is causing some concern among candidates. They are having difficulty getting office staffers and stenographic help where in the past there was plenty available. "In past years." the spokesman said, "candidates could get all the help (bey wanted merely by providing the campaign headquarters with lunch money and carfare and a promise of a job after the election. "Nowadays, with good jots waiting for anyone who wants one. the competition is pretty severe." One candidate said he expected to have to pay. some salaries but probably would get at least part of his help via the carfare-lunch sys- BLYniEVlLLE (AKK.)!

But now the bomber was riding easily high over Germany. Suddenly, a calm voice spoke over Ihc inter-phone system. 'Bay, Bud," said the waist gunner, "look around for ;v>mc of my toes, will you? They're bound to be in the plane somewhere.' 1 Ills right boot was soaked with blood, but he sat there in the plane, with a sandwich in each hand, and refused first aid until the plane had fought its way through the German fighters. Three of his toes were gone, and half of his foot all the way back lo the arch—was smashed inside the fleece-lined flying boot. ' B(it the waislgunncr wasn't the only calm wounded man aboard. The radioman also had just refused first aid and had patched up a dozen cuts in his own leg while staying at his post. "Both of those guys ought to get medals," said the pilot, First Lientenant Richard W. Trelcavcu of Oak Park, III. "They didn't even tell me they were wounded-until we cot into comparatively safe territory." The names of the wounded men must be withheld until their families have been notified, biit their fellow crewmen «,told- <Jiow!i they stuck to their Jobs on the .Flying Fortress which raided Cottbus, southeast of Berlin, yesterday. "Just north and east of the target 20 German fighters came nt us from all angles," said the navigator. First Lieutenant Harry B. Seraphim? of New York City. "Tiles- put fibcnt 20 holes in the plane-all within 20 millimeters and most of lliem on the right side." "Those two men must have been hit right then, but they kept on lem working and shooting (heir wins, and \vc didn't know il up front, added the co-pilot First Lieutenant William li. Lawlcy of Dennlson Tex, "Why. Ihe radio man just ke'H Icllint; me about the weather, Tra- leaven said. "They knew it", safe yet, because we had lo fight our wr.y back. We- were cut ofl from our formation nml were out there with nobody on our side riyht then except ourselves." It was nearly 10 minutes Inter when the gunners had ceased firing that the radio mini told the "ilot of the wounds over the in- ler-plwnc and Treleavcn .started lo clircci someone ;o give him flr.« aid. "I offered to BO back," said the bombardier, Second Lieutenant L»- roy N. KreiiK-v, of Chjirlcslun, Mass. "But the waist gunner broil'; into the conversation and said 'stay at your gun. rm nil riylil. Wait until we get out of enemy territory.' There sttll was danger from enemy fighters then." After leaving enemy territory, the engineer was sent back. The engineer found the waist gunner ;.) '"" scat at the guns with n sandwich in each hand and his injured fool held out straight. Anti that's when he made the crack about looking for his lots. 111. Mr. J. S. Rushing, El Dorado dentist-oilman and candidate for governor, is reported reliably to be bringing in a Chicago advertising specialist to handle his campaign. ... .1. Bryan Sims continued to assert last week that his campaign manager had been chosen but could not be revealed for the time being. . . . Many state newspapers will be hard put to find room for extensive political advertising this year.
