MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1947 BLYT5IKV1LLE (AHK.) COUKIEIl NEWS PAGB in the Mouth--.-ls Q Good Holds Interest Former Commander Of Legion Says He May Be Candidate By Mob Brown ^(United Press Sluff Correspondent) If LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Dec. 1 (UP) • -—The political situation in Arkan/ sas made news twice over the svcek- cnd. One prospective candidate withdrew frotn gubernatorial consideration, and a newcomer broke into the " talked of" slage. In a move regarded as highly significant, Highway Commissioner William Harold Sadler volnnlccred the iulormnlion that "I shall not seek public office in 1948." Slnvul- . tancously, Wesley Sampler of Rogers announced that he was "considering" making the race. Sadler's announcement, coming just before a promised statement from Gov, Ben Lancy as to his political aspirations, was seen by many observers as opening the door to a llilrd loi-m for Ihe governor. Lancy, however, denied that he wits Involved in Sadler's decision. In further statements Ihe governor confused his plans lo announce his decision. He set Dec. 20 as the dale he would make an announcement, but he added that Ihe announcement at lhat lime might be one of further delay in his long-awaited decision. Asked why he could not announce his Intentions at, this time, the governor answered that he was-doing his "own thinking," and that, he has "always hcen a little slow." He also refused to comment on other candidates or .suggest the man he might support should he decide to retire. "Every man who wants to run -"^jhould be allowed to run without ^interference from any ex-high official or any present high-official," Lanoy said. "I don't believe in any pressure being brought in an effort ; .to make anyone run or not run." Sadler, a long-time backer of the governor, thanked his supporters for their "many voluntary pledcgcs of support." While it said he would not "seek" office, it dirt not preclude his making a race if he is drafted. Sampler Is a veteran of World War II and Immediate past slate commander of the American Legion. . "Many sugestions have come li me from all seclions of the stat that I become a candidate for gov ernor," Sampler said. "I am giving It most serious consideration."

They cut their eyctccth on a steering wheel, so to speak — they know car values from A to izzard — and you have to he plenty good to step ahead of your price class in the volume of your sales to them. That's why it's startling — sometimes even to us—to see the double-barreled story of public preference that's written in the sales records and registration figures: ' ITEM: Only three cars outsell Buick — and all of these are in the so- called "low-price field." ITEM: In some localities — and quite often in polls that ask "Which car will you buy next?" — Buick ranks not fourth, hut third, actually ahead of one ot the lowest-priced three. Naturally, the smart buyer will ask "How come?" Well, the most standout style of the season, the style that's the clearest forecast of wonderful things to be, undoubtedly has much to do with it. But that isn't all. The dollar is still a pretty important measuring stick. So we don't think.Buick could be where it is if it didn't offer a bigger dollar's worth—bigger in size and substance, in lift and life, in soft ride and easy handling, bigger in (he all-round happiness you'll get out of your buy.
