Nevada's DemiHTalic al.torncy eneral, William Malhew.s. told the ourt yesterday the I7lh Amend- lent to Ihe U.K. Constitution pru- Ules that the voters namo a sue- j essor nl the Nov. *J general ek-c- on. . ! The amendment rends that the Kovurnor shall "make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the Lwislalurc. may direct." Lester Summcrffcld, for m e r GOP national commitleeinan from Nevada, replied the amendment makes no mention of when the election should be held, maintaining tin; Constitution empowered the governor to appoint a successor until the term expires. "The next general election," .Summcrileld sriid, "Is now in progress." He said it started when ab- I son IP. e ballots were mailed out re- i cently. j Ma thews countered that abscn- ' Ice balloting was "a privilege and voters (, ballots at their own ' risk, knowing full well the ballot i may dinn^e before election clay.' j Continued from Page I by m.*hmi,' a closo examination of the bufj that he was not rubbing his k-Ks t'^i'Uu-r to make the noise.

In this section it buries OKI'S in the ground early each fall. They hatch out in late spring. Hiding under bushes and in whatever shelter is to be found during the day, they come out at night. In caw you haven't heard, they will cut holes in paper, rubber and clothing, indoors or out. WKLI., WITH COOL weather coming on and the smell of fall in the air, we will probably begin to bid farewell to the unwanted and umnoiirned creatures until late next .summer. Borne people will probably miss tiie little fellows because they afforded such interesting targets for their marksmanship with such Hems as pop bottles. U.S. to Get ROK Appeal SEOUL I/PI— South Korea today called off its government-sponsored mass demonstrations agiiinst the withdrawal of U. S. troops from Korea. Instead, the National Assembly is planning to send civic envoys to the United States for direct appeals. State Demos Name Negroes, Vote Funds LITTLE ROCK ifl — The Arkansas Democratic State Committee has taken two history-making steps — naming three Negroes to its membership and recognizing the Republican threat by alloting funds to help the party's candidates in the Nov. 2 general election. The precedent-setting appointment of three Negroes to the com- miitce conforms with a resolution adopted by the biennial State Democratic Convention last month. Pratt Rommel's name was not mentioned when the committee alloted $2.500 to help the party's, cause in the November election. | But the move appeared to be an ; expression of possible concern over I the Republican gubernatorial candidate's active campaign. Nobody at yesterday's meeting t of the committee could remember | the last time the Democrats both- j ered to put up money for a general election campaign in Arkansas. The Democratic nomination for many years has been the equivalent of election.
