DO««*NT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHKA OT ARK *„,». /^ ^ ^.Tr 1 "™- ** ±^ J-J W T O DelaysOpening Of Election Cnfesf Trial .Circuit judge Charles W. Light of 1'aragould, In Mississippi county ^Circuit Court in Osceola today delayed opening of the Jack Finley Robinson-William Berryman elec- iion contest trial Involving the Democratic nomination for sherlfl In the August 13, 19« primary, until the ballot boxes can be delivered into the custody of the court. An order was Issued this morning for delivery by Miss Elizabeth Blythe, county clerk, of the original bailot boxes, tally sheets and other election data for the main primary. A similar order went to Miss Delia Puitle, county' treasurer, who is custodian of a second set of boxes which contain the duplicate bal- lofs. The orders for the ballot boxes were Issued after the court had received information that the original ballots, tally sheets and poll books from the main primary may have been destroyed alter proper authorization had been made to burn the records for the preferential primary held two weeks earlier. - , , -The court was informed that it wr-s necessary to use one of the county's two sets of ballot boxes in the-November general electlofl. In carrying out the judge's instructions for destroying . ballots which were in no w ay Involved In the contest growing out of the second primary, it appears that .the original records for the second primary were inadvertently destroyed. ( The final determination of the election contest, it was indicated today, will hinge on the records reflected by the duplicate ballots which are In the custody of the County treasurer. Loss of the records delivered' to . the. county clerk, however, would complicate the trial procedure and possibly cause the trial to last much longer than it wouid otherwise have required to settle the issues. The two county jf:"i~:ai.i who are custodians of the ballot; were scheduled to appear afternoon to report on the disposition which had been made of the records of the piimnmy, out of which the contest grew. ;Mr. Robinson, who was credited) with' having receiver! 3,861 votes when the returns 'were certified last ; August . by the Mississippi County Democratic : Committee,, brought the contest against Wil• Ham •Berrmyman, -who--then was serving as BlytlievU!.''c chief oi police. He was credit-a with 4,093 votes, a total of 232 more l.han his'lone opponent, to receive the party, nomination, 1 and .was elected without opposition in :)i e November general election. He has been serving as sheriff since Jan. 1 Validity of approximate!'-/ 1,400 votes was challenged by Mr. Rol>- inisorrin his elertion contest action, while on cross-complaint, Sher.ff Berryman questioned th» legality , of upwards of 3,000 votes. .Once the trial of the litigation actually gets under way, the court must'determine the legality of the votes challenged by thc two candidates and their legal r.gunsel. Court attaches agree that -it may take more than a month to complete the trial if the litigants proceed with all bf thlr challenges. • .Since the litigation could not bc terminated in advance of thc general election last November, it leaves the contestant in a position where his victory, if he wins the case, will bc only a moral one. Should the court in Its final decision, rule that Mr. Berryman was not legally the nominee as a result of the Democratic primary, it would h?ve the effect of voiding the results of thc general election and create a vacancy in thc office of sheriff a nd collector in Mississippi County. Dismissal of the election contest proceedings for any reason, will mean that sheriff Berryman would continue in office for the remainder Of the two-year term which began Jan. i. In the event the office should be declared vacant, Gov. Ben Lanr^ would fill the vacancy by appointment. Under Arkansas law, the ap- iwintce would not be eligible to seek this particular office at ihc conclusion of the term for which hc might be appointed. Thc first hearings in the case were concluded before Judge Waller N. Killough of Harrisburg, whose term as circuit judge expired Dec. 31, 1946. He was succeeded by Judge Blytlicvllle Herald Mississippi Valley Lead« NORTHS* BT ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI Lilienthal Gains 8-1 Approval In Committee Vote Nomination Heads For Bitter Fight On Senate Floor WASHINGTON, Mar. 10.—CUP) -The Senate Atomic Energy comm-tee today aproved, a to 1, the d sputed nomination of David E, Lilienthal lo bc chairman O f the O. •.-.

The committee vole crime si* weeks of public hearings Tlie nomination headed for a bitter fight on the Senate floor. Sen. Kenneth McKellar, D., Tena. Lihenthal's most outspoken foe, premised the "dnmnest fight you've ever seen." The committee also approved the nominations of four others to be members of J.he^ commission ami Carroll Wilsot?'to be general manager of the atomic project. Bricker and sen. Edwin o. Johnson, D.. Colo., voted against the nomination of Sumner T. Pike, former member of the Securities an<i Exchange . Commission, to be an atomic commissioner. They likewise vote/i against Wilson. Lewis L. Strauss, former New York investment banker, William W, Waymack, former editor of the DCS Moines, (la.) Register and Trl- bune, and Robert P. Bachcr, atomic scientist, were approved unanimously as commission members. Brlcker's vote against Lilienthal Put him In the same camp with Sen. Robert A.

Claude Pepper, D., Fin., snid President Truman agrees with him and Sen. James E. Murray, D., Mont., that "forces of ambitious militarism and isolationism" are behind the fight against Lilienthal. Pepper said the President had registered substantial accord with thc views they expressed in a recent letter to him. Their letter said the opposition to the former TVA chairman was based on "greedy elforts to establish private monopolies in the field of atomic energy." McKellar and Taft have accused Liliehlhal of condoning communism in TVA. Bricker indicated he would make a statement later explaining his vote. Lilienthal was headed for a hard fight on thc Senate floor. In addition to Taft and Bricker, such GOP leaders as floor leader Wallace H. White. Me., whip Kenneth S. Wher- iv. Neb, and Chairman Styles Bridges of the Appropriations com- miltee have announced they will vote against him.
