Ike Murry, who've been sparring verbally tor several months, may have set the stage for Arkansas' 1952 political battle. McMath landed ^he first punch yesterday when he called In members of the Arkansas Highway Audit Commission to ask that cross examination of witnesses be allowed at the coming public hearings, dK?he governor, who Is thought to be considering running for a third term, opened his appeal with a blistering attack on Murry.

Soviet Builds More Planes Lovett's statement, taken logeth er with unofficial estimates of American and Russian production, pointed up President Truman's report to Congress on Wednesday hat the Soviet Union "is still producing more war planes than the free nations." The most recent unofficial estimate here Is that Russia is pro- iucing about 15,000 planes a year Of these about 12,000 are first line combat aircraft with about 70 per cent of them Jet fighters. Ramsey Testimony Ajjainst this is the recent estimate of Adm. DeWitt c. Ramsey Ret., president of Aircraft Industries Association, that total production of American planes of al types may reach about 1,500 per month by late 1952. That would be at the rate of 18,000 a year and some industry men believe thii figure may be a little too high.
