Delegates Uninslrueted Delegates to next month's national convention were chosen at a recent state convention in Little Rock and at district gatherings held before the state meeting. All of the delegates will go to the convention iminstructed officially. One delegate, Cooper Hudspeth of Fort Smith, attributed Taft 1 * showing to his friendship with National Comniittecman Wallace Townsend of Little Rock. Hudspeth predicted that the Ohio senator would receive 11 Arkansas votes on the first ballot in Philadelphia out of the delegation 1 ! loyalty to Towti- Stassen's showing wa,s attributed to the impression he and his representatives have made in several , trips to Arkansas.

State Chairman Osro i Cobb said he ''leans toward" Stassen. and that Speaker Joe Martin would be his second choice "at present," Charles R.

A do/.en cans MTTLE ROOK. Ark., May 31.— (UP) -if (he motorists of Arkansas continue on their reckless way for the remaining months of the year, the Revenue Department probably will break all records in revoking drivers' licenses. Frank Clancy, director of the motor vehicle division of the de-' partment. said 384 drivel« licenses have already been cancelled this year. The department revoked 781 licenses last year, slightly below the record high of 791 in 1946. Clnncy explained that a court conviction on a drunken driving or other charge means automatic revocation. "We'd get » lot more ofl the road If the judges and magistrates would send Us the transcripts of their convictions." he said. Tho judges In sorne counties, Clancy pointed out, never furnish his office with the necessary transcripts- The law provides a 30-day revocation for a first offender and a year's revocation for & second ol- fense.
