PAGE TWO BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, APRIL 12,1955 Arkonsos in Woshington It's a Sure Bet Fulbrigkt Will Run Again in 7956 BT GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON (AP) — You can put it dnwn that Sen. Fulbright will be a candidate for reelection in 1956. There is no doubt as to his intentions even though it is much too early for any formal announcement. Fulbrisht, 50, will U« seeking his third 6-year term. The former University of Arkansas president has become one of the most important figures in the Senate. He is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee and third Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, which he may head some day. He now is outranked In the group cnly by the venerable Sen. George (D-Ga) and the elderly Sen. Green (R-RI). The question in which Fulbrlghts friends are Interested Is: Will he be opposed in the Democratic primary and the general election In Arkansas next year? In 1950 Tulbrlght had no opposition. No Hint of Opponent The , senator's friends her3 report they have heard no whispers of possible opponents In the primary They don't believe that former Gov. Sid McMath, who ran against Sen. John L. McClellan in 1951, will oppose Pulbrlght. McMath said after the 1954 race that he might seek election to the House in 1956. It is generally believed here that Gov. Orval Faubus will go for a second, term next year and might have a race on his hands il former Gov. Francis Cherry decides to try a comeback. In that event, a senatorial race undoubtedly, would take second billing. None of the state's House members appear interested in trying to unseat Pulbright. He is highly regarded by all of them. There Is speculation that Fulbright may have Republican opposition. Most priminently mentioned In Washington, in this connection, is Mayor Pratt Remmel of Little Rock. Remmel polled a big vote last year against Paubus. Some observers figure it might be Republican, strategy to keep rulbrlght tied down in his own state and out of the presidential campaign. In 19S4 Pulbright was very active for Adlal Stevenson. ArkanaM Mnlor senator, John McClellan,'mentioned now nnd then if a possible candidate for the Democratic vice presidential nomination next year, has built quite * national following. He receives a heavy volume ot out-oC-state mail. And the Democratic National Committee gets frequent request* for him as a •p«aker. But McClellan, who obviously Uk0s hia job as senator, hasn't shown much Interest In vice presidential talk. Rep. Brooka Haya (D-Ark) believes Congress will give President Elsenhower strong backing In whatever decision he reaches on the knotty question of defending the China off-shore Islands of Quemoy and Matsu. But, he says, "I hope he makes the decision quickly, announces It boldly and gives good reasons for it. "Too many have assumed that he could not withhold support tor the defense of Quemoy and. Matsu without the appearance of appease-* ment and consequent disastrous effect upon morale. I do not share this view, though I recognize the difficulties that nre Involved."

MASSOC'K LA PAZ, BolivU Ifi — Pood-short Bolivia It planning a gradual migration of Its Indian peasants to open new farmlands In the unfilled Eaat. Eighteen months of agrarian reform have failed to feed Bolivia's 3,100.000 Inhabitants. For one thing, It takes a lot of surveyor! to cut up great tracts of farm land. For another, the Bolivian Indian has to be urged to drop his habit of centuries and grow more than enough for his own family's needs. So Bolivia still must import at least 25 million dollars worth of foodstuffs yearly. In Its Inflationary crisis, millions of dollars worth of food come aa a gift from the United States. Emphaals on Migration Emphasis now Is not so much on agrarian reform as on the migration plan. The government plans to move people from the highlands of western Bolivia to the vast and sparsely settled plains of eastern Bolivia around Santa Cruz. There they would grow sugar cane, rice, corn and yucca. In the Chaco region on the Argentine border they would raUe livestock. How does the government expect to get the Indians to leave their old homes for the new "Every man one year ot military i*rvtce whw h* to It yeari old," Paz Eatenworo said. "We will take the conscripts to tne Santa Cruz region and put them to work on the land there as part of their military service. When the year is up each man will be of- fered t farm of his owe to which he cm bring his family from the highlands. We believe many of tin men will w»nt to stay."
