YoungDemocrafs Lodge Complaint Party's Chairman ' Defends Action Of State Committee JONESBORO. Ark.. March S. CUP)—Criticism by Young Democrats that a Just proportion of young voters was not named among delegates lo the party's national convention, has been termed "unfair" by State Central CommlUee Chairman Arthur Adams of Jonesboro "We were trying 1 0 make Ihc selections as general and representative «s possible." Adams countered. He explained that members of the Central Committee and members al a special committee put forth Ihe names of potential delegates who had been suggested to (hem, and (hen the central committee as a whole voted the delegates from this list. '•Naturally," Adams said, "it was a difficult proposition. The ptivsi- cal limitations on the size ot the Arkansas delegation alone would have prevented many of those who wanted to go. from serving as delegates." He said ho did not know whethei the names of any other members of the Young Democrat o—-.-•,_ tion was suggested to the two committees besides that orsn „ Chest Colds To help relieve conges- tion.coughing, muscular torencss, rub on warming president, Henry Woods of Teaa»- kan«.
