BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS 1ATUKDAY, APRIL T, 19M_ Estes Claims Adlai Is Now 'Desperate' By RONALD AUTRY MOUNT HOLLY, N. J. (AP) — Sen. Estes Kefauver (D- Tenn), touring New Jersey, charged Adlai Stevenson with talking nonsense now "in the manner of a man who is desperate." He answered with hnrsh word of his own, a bitter barb tossed b; Stevenson in Florida yesterda: that Kefauver was threatenim party unity. Kefauver, who is on a five-da; tour of the state in a bid for Neu Jersey's 36 Democratic Convention votes, called a special press con ference in Paterson yesterday tc get into the long distance verbn joust with Stevenson. Hurt Party He charged Stevenson with mud slinging and said the former Illi nois governor himself, was pursu ing a tack that would hurt th( Democratic party. As'the battle for the Democrat!! presidential nomination got tough Kefauver embarked on a second day's grueling 16-hour scheduli Jrom this South Jersey communi He expressed satisfaction with the Initial phase of his tour tha took him to major cities, industria areas, colleges and farming sec tions, in a wide sweep of the state "a good day," he com- yesterday. » was mented. Kefauver responded calmly, but ' with a touch of bitterness, to Stevenson's further charge that Kefauver had been absent from the Senate when votes were taken on a number of vital measures. "OHt of Character" He called on Stevenson to stop engaging "in mudsllnging." He said it was out of character and added he hoped Stevenson "finds it within himself to get back into character." As for himself, Kefauver said. "I intend to conduct my campaign as I have in the past and I'm not going to engage in personalities and mudslinging. We'll turn the POLITICS (Continued from Page 1) of Kefauver and Gov. Frank J. Lausche of Ohio are trying to generate rite-in votes .for their men. In Miami, the Dally News snld yesterday that Florida contributions for the Stevenson campaign have "dropped sharply," apparently os a result of his loss to Kefauver In Minnesota. The News said some expensive features planned for the Stevenson cam* scrapped. Not Rich Rep. Sykes (D-Fla), Florida ' chairman of Stevenson's campaign, said, funds are coming in. "although we're certainly not running a rich man's campaign." Sykes said he thought President Elsenhower's decision to seek a second term moved "many Democrats. . .not to mnke any contributions" this year. The question oi' finances us raised at one of Kefauver's • ne? conferences yesterday and he said that so far he has received between $110,000 and $115,000 — "mostly from small contributors and about half from. . .Tennessee." Since his Minnesota victory Kefauver said, contributions to hi 1 '! campaign fund have risen substan-, tlally. When asked about reports that he had received money help from • New York's Gov. Averell Harrl- man—an "inactive candidate" for the Democratic nomination—Kr fauyer replied: "I, haven't received any offer or any aid froir Harriman." other cheek. "I think people want the issues discussed and I intend to discuss them." Kefauver, who likes to meet a lot of local people on his tours, said at an after breakfast press confab in Newark that Stevenson was throwing mud by making fun of his bent for handshaking. Kefauver also said Stevenson had accused him of saying different tilings in different parts of the country. Even as Kefauver launched his New Jersey swing, Stevenson was attacking him in Florida saying Kefauver hurt the party by denouncing Stevenson supporters as political bosses or aa members of a political machine. Absentdsrn Moreover, Stevenson snid, Kc- fauver 1ms been absent from the Senate when many major measures were up for a vote. To this, Kefauver replied at the Palerson press conference called after he had carefully studied news reports of Stevenson's address before the Jacksonville Bar Assn.: "I haven't been absent on any important votes 1 remember. I think my voting record shows a very good attendance." He said he would have to make check before he could answer specifically some of the votes on bills cited by Stevenson. "I Run Hard'* Replying to Stevenson's remark that Kefauver may want to be president too badly, the Tennes- sean said: "I run hard for anything I run for. I run on an affirmative basis." Kefauver spoke to Gov. Robert B. Meyner by telephone and arranged a Sunday morning dnte to attend church together and then jold a Joint press conference. Meyncr heads a slate of un- peldgcd organization Democrats who oppose .Kefauyer's ticket in he April 17 New Jersey primary. Although Meyner himself has ;nid he will endorse no candidate, tefauver snys he feels Meyner has enned townrd Stevenson. A presidential preference poll Is ncludcd In the New Jersey prl- nary, but only Kefauver and Prcs- dent Eisenhower nre entered In it. Backers of Stevenson In the stale have started n "tuit Kefauver" move to get Stevenson adherents to ignore the presidential preference poll. The poll is merely n popularity contest, because it does not bind candidates. There is no crossing of party lines permitted. President Eisenhower's name does not ap- penr on the Democratic ballot. And n person voting in (he primary cannot change his party al- lefifance until two .subsequent primaries have gone by.
