Party Loyalty in Arkansas Can Easily Be Overdone® In "warning" Democrats of Arkansas that they face n two-year suspension from the party if caught voting for a November, Beloit Taylor of Little Rock wound up hy doing his own cause little appreciable good. Mr. Taylor, secretary of the Pulaski County Democratic'Committee, recited party rules in such a manner as to indicate the first real concern ever shown, by Arkansas Democrats about the pros-' ( pects of Republican -ini-onds in this state. ' He pointed out that a Democrat caught voting for a Republican would lose his right to vote in a Democratic primary during the two-year sitspen-' sion. % How does anyone know which candidate you voted for? A system of chal- , lenging a voter is included»in parti- rules. Responsibility for challenging a voter lies with election judges although there are others, including representatives of the candidates, who may also issue such a challenge. This challenging would occur at a primary election following the general election, since in November you may vote for whomever you please with no questions asked. Primaries are conducted by the parties, however, so voters who belong to that party may choose its nominees. Hence, if you are known to be a Republican, or have mentioned puhlically ti'.at you voted Republic,™ in the last general election, you could bo challenged a: an ensuing Democratic primary, (t !-.;•.> always been customary for members of the parties to vote only in their own primaries. In slates having voter registration laws, you can vote only in the primarv conducted by the party with which yon register as a member. K j s then assumed that yon will also support the party's nominees in the general election. However, you are not required by any law to do so. The issuance of Mr. Taylor's "warning" is reminiscent of the Texas Taft forces' action in accusing Texas Eisenhower supporters of not being true Republicans, but Democrats who infiltrated the party. There seems to be ,1 growing preference today among many persons to vote for the man rather than the party. In times past, it has not, on the other hand, been unusual for the party and its principles to he more attractive than the man. There's no law against changing your mind, and threatening banishment to Democrats who stray into tha Kepubliowi e«mp, if only briefly, sounds to us like a good way to help thc Republicans build their party strength in Arkansas. Voters are not going to sit idly by and he disenfranchised by party punishment. We cannot help but feel that any Democrat banned from voting in a Democratic primary — especially in a virtually one-party state like Arkansas . —is going to go right ahead and exercise his franchise by turning to the other party. At first, of course, this would not be possible since the Republicans conduct no primaries in Arkansas. However, if you banish enough Democrats, you'll soon see Republican primaries in this state, Loyalty to any cause is a fine thing and we are not attempting to contend otherwise. However, returns from any national election show fluctuations from one party to another. There is always a flow of voters from one party to another. Trying to woo' the voters into a specific camp by political principle rather than party rule provides the competition that keeps our two-party system alive and healthy. Views of Others The Negro Vote The statement of Negro Congressman Adam Clayton Powell \that nhe Negro voter just will not go to the polls at all" If the Democrats follow Republicans in "pussy-footing around on the civil • rights Issue" is so'much baloney. Far loo much fuss has been raised over civil rights. That one issue Is not going to divide the elcclcrnle as much as Congressman Powell' would have us think. In theiflrst place,., the so-called "Negro vote" is political cliche like, the so-called "Labor vote." Negroes'vote for or against a cnndldate-for the same reasons white folks vote for or against, a candidate. • In the second place, Congressman Powell cannot claim the right to speak lor the more than 12 million Negroes in thc United states nny more Ilian the Communist Paul Rob won could speak for them. Both polHicnl parties have ggne on record favoring equal rights. The language of the civil rights plank of the party platforms is just not strong enough for the extremists like Congressman Powell who, like Walter White, poses as a champion of his race. Negro voters ore not going to be misled by absurd statements like those made by Powell. They are going to,decide this question: "Which candidate for PrcsWcnt is going to be a better president for nil Americans of all races, creeds nnd colors?" Mr, Powell actually insults the Intelligence of the Negro voters by presuming to state what they will rto on election day. —Kingsport (Tenn.)

WBPKESPAY, AUGUST 20, Peter fdson's Washington Column — Swordsmen Ike and Stevenson Have Yet to Draw First Blood early to expect anything better. But the presidential campaign thus far has been largely a long-distance fencing match of glittering generalities from both parties. Political swords hare sparkled listlessly in the summer Minllghl. Neither swordsman has drawn able to yell even one polite "Touche." Tor - - spectators on the Peter Edjnn sidelines, there hasn't been a single play to cheer about. Governor Stevenson came out of his White House call cii President Tnimnn and his cabinet with only he announcement that their plans •vould he • announced later. This left the Impression in Washington hat what they talked about was the wenther and the soup—which are mare or less Indistinauisha- ble—and the new decor of the White House. All the visit accomplished'was o Ret the visitor from Sprinzficld that far Inside the executive "mansion now, if not later. In Springfield.

This was done by having one of his Tides reveal to the press thai'as )f now, the governor would use Us influence to curb Senate filibusters and lo try to find some vay to enforce fair employment practices throughout the nation. The governor didn't sav these flings himself. An authorized spokesman—whose name never vns made public, but whose ini- s might have been Wilson W.vntl or VVilllnm I. Flnnsirnn. his nanager and press secretary— nerely said 'em for him. ^!l m .P'^ a5 ' 0 »" . «?»?«' Eisenhower's widely what public reaction would be. But because the statements were so vague, the reaction was nil. Kisenhowcr Speaks In Broart Terms General Eisenhower in Denver has pursued a slightly different course, though with tbe same effect. The general's press conferences and pronouncements have thus far been in such broad terms thnt somebody else has hod to come along Inter and say what he meant. General Eisenhower made one non-political speech before the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Los An- Mies. He Is scheduled (o make another non-political talk before the American Legion in New York. If Governor Stevenson makes the same kind of talk before the Legion, a whole month of the campaign will have been wasted, with no voter being able to tell what either of these characters stands for. At the Gallup, N. if.. Indian pow-tt-ow, the general told 10,000 red men thnt they "must exercise Iheir newly granted right of universal suffrage to the full as,a demonstrate of good citizenship." Somebody came along later and interpreted this Indian language as meaning that they ought to get out and vote. The day before, at Denver, the general came forward with the pronUuncemont: "I.would support and of legislation for I designed to lighten the high citizens.'

Dulls came out of one two-hour conference sayim? (he g e n e r a 1 agreed with him "that'the trend of our present foreign policies is to put our nation in the greatest peri] it has been in during the entire- course of our national history." The general reaction to this in Washington was ihat Dulles and Eisenhower should know. They both helped make those policies and carry them out.

Golfers Tee Off The implication of gamblers backing a professional woman golfer in the movie "pat and Mik-e'.' caught the golf wo\!d off Dore Schary by Weta eta eta at balance and the wails are coming n from coast to coast. I've just received a copy of one Drotest letter sent to MGM boss 3ore Schary by Walter Keller, a PGA member for 23 years and operator of the Sunset Fields Driv- ng Range in Los Angeles. Keller was "surprised" and •shocked" by the film's theme and regrets "that Hollywood had to pick on our business, which never has been' tainted by gamblers owning a piece of any professional iolfcr." The golf scenes, says Kel- ter very much, but he sianalled encouragement with (he nine of clubs. South promptly began on the irunips by laying down the ace and king, after which he drove out East's jack. West discarded low clubs on the second and third round of trumps. East got out of his hard safely leading his fourth trump, and ler, were."technically but obviously your golf adviser was not consulted when the eerie was written." Then clear-thinking Keller *dds!

Thus 'a group of farm state senators and congressmen came out saying: "We know that General Eisenhower, ivith his family roots in otir great f.irrn couniry, is goins< to present positive, forward-look" ing farm policies, during the campaign."

And no farmer .knew what to expect in the . of soil conservation payment There is. of course, a certain safe ly in this kind of fuzzy language. , Thus Allan Kline, the Farm Bureau Federation head, came out of his conference with Eisenhower, saying that the general "apparently /avors a flexible farm price support policy."
