PAGB TWBLY* (AKK.J COUKIEK NEWS FRIDAY, MAY 25, 195Z McMath Draws Most of Fire As Hopefuls Open Campaign .. ..Br n. fo\ii ot Arkansas' etx gubernatorial hopefuls took to the platform yesterday (Thursday) »nd two of them centered their fire, on & single opponent — Gov. Sid McMath. McMttth, completing his second J-year term In Uie executive mansion, Is defying an Arkansas political tradition by seeking re-election to a third administration. Only one other mnn In modern times has successfully done that — the late Jeff Davis. Congressman Boyd Tackctt, officially opening his campaign In n •peech at Arkadelphla, accused McMath of "going over llio stale promising to pave this, that find every other road just as he has been doing since he entered t)io race for governor In 1948." Tackelt I» First Tackett — first of five aspirants for the Democratic nomination to hit the pollltcnl slump — promised to take Highway Commission appointments away from the gover nor If elecled. "Just another administration or two handling Ihe Highway Deport rnent as it has been handled during the last few years would be disas trous to our state," Uie Nashville candidate said. Before his formal speech at Ar- adelphia last night Tackctt Joined Atty. Gen. Ike Murry, Judge Francis Cherry of Jonesboro end He- publicnn Jeff Speck of Frenchman's Dayou in speeches at Dermott. Speck Unopposed Speck is unopposed for the Republican nomination, The others are bidding for Democratic votes In the July 20 primary. Jack Holt, the fifth candidate, makes Ills first campaign speech Saturday night at Harrison. Murry hinted nt opposition to his ambitions by supporters ot the present administration. It closed ranks against him, he charged, several months JIKO when )ie ruled slntc officials could not do business with the state. Cherry primarily stressed his program of "honesty, integrity ami sound business methods" but devoted some attention to HID lil|;h- way situation. He promised a "sound highway program." Little Time Wasted Spcct wasted littlo lime on state affairs. He blasted the entire Democratic party, claiming n national Democratic victory in November would "lead the r.nllon to dictatorship" and predicted a sweep for Oen. Dwlght D. Elsenhower. Tackett left little doubt that he considers McMalh his chief foe. He mentioned Hie governor by name several times, often referring to him as "Sidney." The Nashville Congressman called for a reduction in size of the Highway Commission from 12 to nn unspecified number of mem berg. "Out merely to reduce the number of commissioners Is no solution if they ore to be appointee' by tlia governor," he added. Tackett suggested that commissioners be appointed to staggcret' terms by "the state'H constitutional officers." All would have to meei qualifications fix-.-'d by the Icglsla ture. Tackctt said he supports the Ru i-a) Elcctj-lcnl Program — "Sidney doesn't know public powe from private power" — and promised not to seek ;i third term Among Tiickelt's other proposal were a minimum teachers' salary beginning nt $2.400 a year, a reduc tlon In administrative control a schools at Uie state level, rcmiova of the education department Iron "partisan politics" and a ccilir. on taxes at present levels. Some Efforts to Save Democracy Could Wreck It, Rotary Club Told 'ottng prlvlle&es," lie "We must be careful that we do-< nt destroy our democracy through over-tealous efforts to save It," Lloyd Godley, Osceola Rotarlan, told members of Blytliertlle's Rotary club yesterday. Danger of losing; perwnal freedoms wlsl* in certain legislation, like the Hatch Act, he said, which really seeks to protect democracy. "We need «i\ executive who will serve «ll classes of people without prejudice. "We need'a Judiciary which will enforce the law without favoritism. And we need constructive criticism of our system of government, not Yin HI cation of it. "And we can hive these thlne« when the people demand It cxer- elsing their stated. Progress In the United States In the past 50 years. Mr. Godley pointed out, has been prodigious. "Hut I wonder," he Bald, "If we have shown political growth equal to our technological growth." Some people, In their earnest attempts to Improve our democracy, only endanger It, he said. "The Ifclr Employment Practices Act Is an example of legislation fostered by » group which Is probably Bincere In trying to Insure emial "rights lor minorities. But In this Instance, they arc trying to Infringe on the rights of the majority," he 1 stated. Mr. Godley was Introduced by Ro- tarlan Kay Hall. Guests at yesterday's meeting Included L. C.
