U. -Assistant Attorney General Ike Murry of Fordyce has resigned his office effective March 1. His action IE taken as an indication that he wilt run for the office of Attorney General thus year. Murry said he would announce ' his future plans at a later date. The resignation of the former sailor has also been interpreted as evidence that Att. Gen. Guy E. Williams will be running for governor. Close friends of Murry point out that he was reluctant, to run against, his boss if Williams chose to be Attorney General again, Bui they believe Williams assured Murry he would not be seeking reelection. Murry had been on the Attorney General's staff, except for 28 months in the Navy, since 1942, and prior to that he had served as a state representative, a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney and a For- dycR attorney.
