Trade Statistics Offer Us Some Encouragement Things are looking up for Arkansas in the field of retail sales, a fact that all of us can find considerable comfort in. According .to /inures compiled by the Trade Development Division of the Greater Little Rock Chamber of Commerce from a Sales Management magazine survey, Arkansas' 1951 retail «ile« are 345 per cent above those of 1940. This is a greater increase for the 10- year period than shown by any other . state. In second place, with a 214 per cent increase for the past decade, was Mississippi—the state generally conceded to be the only thing that has separated Arkansas from the bottom of many lists. In addition to showing some of our metropolitan friends in other states that we are not the sleepy state modern mythology has us, these figures also hold encouragement for us. Admittedly, both Arkansas and Mississippi have had the longest way to come and hence were in a better position to show the largest percentage increases. We also admit that a long road stretches ahead of us. H also ig interesting to note that other top states in percentage increases include Oregon, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Indiana, Louisiana, North Carolina and Missouri. Notable factor here is that none of these states are located in the "money belts" of the East or West. Mississippi County's 1951 farm income of ?66,141,000 earned it 26th place in the nation in listings of gross cash income from farming. These figures tell us that Arkansas U coming up. Though \ve may be a long way from the end of the road, it is encouraging _ and inducive to renewed incentive, we hope — to note that our progress is both noticeable and being noticed. Bitter GOP Contest for Seat May Climax Convention Three-fourths of the delegates to the July 7 GOP national convention have now been chosen. Though th« totals recorded for Senator Taft and General Eisenhower shift almost daily, careful projection of remaining selections indicates both will reach Chicago with block* of from 425 to 500. Nomination requires 604. The calculations suggest Tafl is likely to have the higher figure of the two candidates, but not R wide margin over Eisenhower. Neither top candidate seems destined to get really clo«« BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS tn th« ffiMrie 604 in »dvuw» of th* BOB- TtnHon MMmblr. Unfo««««n devtlop- menU could up«t ttiU o«tlook. No on« e«n accurately for*»*« what th« «ffect on delegate* will b« when Eisenhower returns from Europe next month. H« might vastly booat hi« stock, or he might hurt himself. But if nothing does nullify th« present figurine, it means that the nomination will actually t* determined on th« Chicago scene. Aside from delegates openly committed to the two leaders, there ig a present prospect that some 300 will come to Chicago either pledged to other men like Governor Warren and Harold Stassen, or uncommitted to any candidate. This floating group will be the prize in the great tug of war. Some of the uncommitted already lean pretty strongly one way or the other. Some belong to big delegations like Pennsylvania's, where Governor F'ine is trying earnestly to pick the winning horse. A good many in this category could get off the fence in the final days before convention. Relegations often caucus en route to the convention city, or shortly after they arrive. A marked trend in convention-eve maneuvers of that sort could virtually end before the gavel falls. But if these leave the issue still unsettled, then a totally different factor enters the picture. According to current predictions, some 89 delegates in five southern states will be in the uncommitted category. They will be there because there is no other place to put them. Their problem is not uncertainty; it's that there will be too many of them. It looks as if Texas, Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi will each send two rival delegations to Chicago, one for Taft, the other for Ike. Obviously there are enough delegates in this bundle to tip the scales decisively for either man. Not since 1912, when 254 seats were contested, has such a large group headed for the convention under a "clouded title." The burden of deciding which delegations to seat will fall to the Republican National Committee. Appeals may be taken first to the Credentials Com- .mittee of the convention, and then to the convention floor, where all the eligible delegates will vote on any unsettled matter. If the contests are bitter, as may be the case, it will be the convention itself which will cast the critical weight. And for that purpose it will behoove supporters of both Taft and Eisenhower to marshal not only alt their pre-Ghicago delegates, but all the additional strength they can from either uncommitted ranks or the backers of other candidates. This dramatic test, should it come off, may well prove the climax of the convention, reducing all succeeding events to a mere routine. Rut there is just a chance that party leaders, in the interest of later harmony, may dodge this fight by offering to divide all contested seats equally between Taft and Eisenhower. . In that event, the strength of both would be evenly augmented, and the real ballot-by-ballot struggle would be on| And then the winner would be the man with the greatest secondary pulling power among delegates not originally favoring him.

(Too UorrJnc »«•*» Kefauver Builds Up His Record By Taking Stand on AH Questions Better Hurry/ Son, Time's A-Wastin'l SATURDAY, MAT 24, 1952 Peter fdson'i Washington Colum WASHINGTON (NEA) _ In the Irst 100 dnys o( his campaign for he Democratic presidential nomination. Sen. Rites Kefauver ot Tennessee visited in 25 states, entered ID p r i m a r, made 30 major arfdresaes and at least 300 whistle- stop talks, had been on radio or TV once or twice a day and had shaken 117.459 hands. Or some such number. - ^ - - -, but steadily the flIJ Tennesseean has been building p a record ot where he stands nil n every single Issue. To Washintgon political writers his is somewhat remarkable be- nilse they never considered him 'Ired for sound. Even when his enate crime Investigation wns cong full lilt, dragging Intnrrnntion lit of him was always tough. He •as always soft-spoken nnd .shy lo he point ot seeming embarrassed uring an interview. This has caused some doubts bout what kind of n president he night make. He has had little or no xecutive experience. When congressional votes have oeen counted, Kofsuvcr has usually cen found on the side o( the pee- ul—for progressive and liberal rearm rather than reaction. HE HAS NOT voted the slraisht 'ew Deal Democratic line. He has hnnged his mind on some Issues. efauver's opponents say this Js p tgn of weakness. His supporters ay H proves that where the sena- or has found himself in the wrong, e hns admitted it. Thus while Senator Kefauvor Irst voted ncninst the Tafl-Hartley ct. he says new he would not re- pal it, but would amend it to limit use of Injunctions and modify the Hat closed-shop ban. Senator Kefauver has been openly ni-Hk-nl of President Trumnn for his sciijie of the steel mills to prevent a strike. .The senator has alsn differed vith the President on the administration's Drannan farm plan. Kefauver supports the farm price support program, however, and he favors a higher parity level to include the farmer's own labor In computing production cosls. Kefauver has likewise opposed compulsory health Insurance. But he Is in favor of more federal aid for hospital construction and the training of more doctors. He Is for more federal aid to general education, too. • • • IN Tins COXNECTIOX, Kefauver favors Sen. Lister Hill's bill to allocate oil royalties from federally- owned iidclanris for education. Senator Kefauvcr was absent when the last Senate vote was taken on returning tidelnnds to state ownership. If present he would have voted for federal ownership. The two iJ«ues on which Senator Kefauvcr was hardest hit by Sen. Richard Russell during the Florida primary campaign were his civil rlshts stand and his past sponsor- shin of "Atlantic Union." Frankly. Senator Kefauver does a little fence - straddling on. civil rights. He is opposed to Senate filibustering to prevent a vote on the issue. In Tennessee he has supported a stnte law to ban the poll tax. He thinks this question and fair employment practices can best be handled by voluntary action In the states. If the Democratic platform written at chicaco calls for a permanent FEPC. however. Senator Ke- tauver says he'll support it. This is obviously a Kt.-ind intended to please both tvorth find deep South. SENATOR KEFAUVER insists he is not for Clarence Streifs "Union Now" idea. But he is one of the group supporting a resoultion to have the President call a meeting of Atlantic Pact nations to study what basis exists for a stronger alliance. Senator Kefauver has supported both military and economic aid for Europe. He is In favor ol keeping U. S. troops in Europe. Ha supports President Truman's action in Korea but the senator goes the President one better in favoring bombing Manchurian air bases, On other domestic Issues, Senator Kefauver has supported universal military training. He favors rearmament, but he wants emphasis put on Point Pour-type nid for friendly countries. He is for the .St. Lawrence seaway and more valley authorities modeled on the TVA so successful in his own state. • • • SENATOR Kefauver has received big hands for saying he is in favor of the balanced budget and a reduced national debt. He says he doesn't see how taxes can be cut. but he isn't in favor of raising them, nor does he support the Idea of a general tales tax. He is lor continuing both price and wage controls and he voted against the Capehart amendment to allow cost-price Increases, On corruption In government, Senator Kefauver takes the stand he has taken since the end of his Senate crime investigation. He favors creation of a federal crime commission, first to clean up the national government, second to aid state and local governments in carrying out their primary responsibility of crime suppression. That the Tennessee senator Isn't afraid to meet an issue head on was shown during his campaign in Wisconsin. Jx Doctor Says — Bj EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.

Anne Baxter, Joan Crawford and Lorctta Young who look like a million even when they're shopping for groceries." "A star these days," groaned Le- Malrc, "puts on an old dress.

Hence Mr. Harmon could expect no more than one diamond trick. It followed therefore that the defenders needed two spade tricks to defeat the contract. These could be won only If south had three small pades—and only if East returned ig lowest spade Immediately After coming to this conclusion Mr. Harmon returned the four of spades. West played the queen, and dummy won with the king. South got to his hand by ruffing a club and drew trumps. He next tried to develop a diamond trick, but West stepped up with the king of diamonds In order to lead his remaining spade.
