(UP) — The lineu]) in Arkansas' 1948 gubernatorial race was no clearer today, following Gov. HIM) I.nney's emphatic denial of a published report that hp has no "further, political ninbitious" and would return lo his Camden farm following Ills services as governor. In a long distance telephone call from 'Buffalo, N. Y., the governor last night told United Press Hint a .statement allegedly made earlier in Huflalo "hud no political reference whatsoever. I have not yet made any statement concerning my political future." The governor and his party of some Hf> "good will" Arkansas travelers visited BulTulo yesterday and Niagara Falls as part of a tour of the East and Canada. Limey left the travelers last night and wont to New York to attend the American Legion Convention as a representative of his Caiiulen, Ark., post. It was during his Western New Yolk pause that Laney was quoted as asserting that he had no further political ambitions. He was quoted as saying "when I'm through as governor I'm going back lo Camdcn and take up where I left off wilh my farm and oil wells." The governor said last night that n reporter had asked him what he would do when he was through with politics. And he said thai he told the reporter that he considered Ihc farm and oil wells as security. Laney reaffirmed his announced intention of not making Ills political plans kiibwn' until around Christmas. And lie said last night they would be announced in Little Rock. Publication of the report here yesterday caused a (lurry of political speculation nt the and caused some consternation among Lnney's political friends. However, for the most part, they predicted that the governor's statement had been mis-interpreted and that he would clenv its implication.
