PAGE EIGHT BLYTHhVlLI.B (AKK.) UUUIUMI NKWS SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1952 Four Arkansas Politicans Speak Out of Many Subjects By The Associated Presi Four prominent Arkansas political figures sounded off Friday on * variety of subjects. Both Arkansas senators — John I,. McClellan and J. William Fulbrlght — had some views on Sen. Russell (D-Ga) for president. Rep. Boyd Tackett of Nashville, an announced candidate for Kover- nor, rose in the House to the i defense of "the little fellow." And Oov. McMath almost said again that he would be a candidate for a third term nomination. McClellan snid at Little Flock thnt he believed Gen. Dwlght D. Elsenhower would return to the United Stales to campaign actively for the Republican nomination for president. And probably get the nomination loo. he added. Should Be Unlnstnlcled He said he thought Arkansas' delegation (o the Democratic mi tlonal convention in Chicago ought to be uninstruclcd (they custom arily are utilnstructed). And he agreed — as had been suggested jy others including McMath — :hat it would be a "nice gesture" for the group to give Fulbrlght n complimentary "favorite eon" vote, on early ballots. Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia is his personal choice for the Democratic nomination, McClellan added. Fnlbright, nlso cast a vole for Russell. He said in an Interview at Kansas city that he thought Ilusscll and Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois would make n good Democratic ticket — one for president and the other vice president; it wouldn't make any difference which way. Later in a speech at Topeka, Kas., Fulbrlght said he thought tho parly winning the corning election should Kuln a sizable working majority In Congress in order to set a policy and carry It out. Ticket! Mid Tli« Little Fellow In a House speech. Tackett declared that "Washington Bureau crals" want to make "the lltlle fellow" more dependent on govern mcnt handouts. He said government credit re gulations are designed to "haras, and annoy" small borrowers bu that big barrowers have no dlfflcul ty. McMath spoke to another "an precinllon ntghl" audience — thi one at Paris, Ark. Ho referred analn lo his own "third man Iheme" — "H as many as Ihrce people me to run, I'll consider It a drill;.' Then he added thnt "I think I may find that third man in this crowd." At Little Rock earlier Friday McMath said he won't back any particular candidate for Ihc Democratic nomination for prrsldrnt. Whoever Die nominee Is will huvc his support In the Kcnural election, Ihe governor added. Gen. Van Fleet's Son Missing In Action After Bombing Run SEOUL, Korea (AP)—Lt. James A.
