Party Loyalty in Arkansas Can Easily Be Overdone* In "warning" Democrats of Arkansas that they face a two-year suspension from the party if caught voting Cor a Republican in November, Boloit Taylor of Little Rock wound up by doing- his own cause little appreciable good. Mr. Taylor, secretary of tho I'ulnski County Democratic-Committee, recited party rules in such a manner as to indicate the first real concern ever $hown. by Arkansas Democrats about the pros-' ( pects of Republican inroads 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 siispen-' sion. ' > Hew does anyone know which candidate you voted for? A system of chnl- . lenging a voter is included % in party 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 nt 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 Ke- publican, or have mentioned puhlically tiiat you voted Republican in the last g.'n.eial election, you could b c challenged a', an ensuing Democratic primary. It h;•..-• ahvays been customary for members of the parties to vote only in their own primaries. In states having voter registration laws, you can vote only in the primary conducted by the p;,rty with which you register as a member. It is then assumed that you will also support the party's nominees in the genera) election. However, you are not required by any law (o do so. The testiaiice of Mr. Taylor's "warning" is reminiscent of the Texas Tnft lorces' action in accusing Texas Kisen- hower supporters of not being true Republicans, but Democrats who infiltrated the party. There seems to be a 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 Ihrc-.'ttcmng banish. ment to Democrats who stray into tha BLTTHEVILLB (ARK.) COUTtien Republiean e«mp, if only briefly, sounds to us like a good way to help the Republicans build their party strength in Arkansas. Voters are not going to sit idly by and be 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 lo 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 slate. Loyally to any cause is a fine thing and WR are not attempting to contend otherwise. However, returns from any national election show fdiet»;itions 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 parly rule provides the competition that keeps our two-party system alive and healthy. Views of Others The Negro Vote The statement ol Negro Congressman Adam Clayton Powell ithat ".the Negro voter just will not go lo the polls at air if the Democrats follow Kcpvibllcans in "pussy-footing around on the civil i rights Issue" Is so'much baloney. Far loo much fuss has been raised ever civil rights. That one issue is not going lo divide the electorate as much as Congressman Powell' would have IK think. In theillist place, the so-called "Negro vote" is political cliche like, the so-called "Labor vote." Negroes vote for or against a candidate for tho snme reasons white folks vote for or against B candidate. in the second place, Congressman Powell cannot claim the right to speak for the more than 12 million Negroes In the United States any more than the Communist Paul Robeson could speak for them. Both political parties have gone on record favoring equal rights. The language of the civil rights plank of the party platforms is Just not strong enough for (he extremists like Congressman Powell whu, like Walter While, poses as a champion of his race. Neero voters are not going to be misled by absurd statements like those' made by Powell. They are going to v dcclde this question: "Which candidate tor President is going to be n better president for nil Americans o! all races, creeds and Colors?" —^iiirr— Mr, Powell [initially insults the intelligence of the Negro voters by presuming to stale what they will do on election day. —Kingsport (Tenn.)

Look at This One for Awhile! «. Peter Id son's Washington Column — Swordsmen Ike and Stevenson Have Yet to Draw First Blood WASHINGTON — (NEA> — The dog days of. August may be too early lo expect anythlni belter. But the presidential campaign thus far has been largely a long-distance fencing match of glittering from both parties. Political swords h » T e sparkled listlessly in Ihe summer sunlight. Neither swordsman has drawn able lo yell even one polite "Touche." ror spectators on the Teler Edson sidelines, there hasn't been a single play to cheer ibout. Governor Slcvenson came out of ils white House cull on President Truman and his cabinet with only the announcement that their plans would be-announced later. This eft the Impression in Washington hat what they talked nbout was the weather nnri Ihe soup—which are more or less Indistinguisha- ble—anrt the new decor of the •Vhite House. All the visit accomplished was o pet the visitor from Springfield hat far Inside the executive ~man- ston now. If not later, In Springfield. Governor stcven- "on has crnwtcd out on no limb, urllier thnn necessary lo release a couple of trial balloons. This was done by having one of his airtos reveal lo Ihe press that'as >i now. the governor would use ils influence to curb Senate filibusters and lo try to find some vay to enforce fair employment practices throughout the nation. The governor didn't sn<- these hlngs himself. An authorized •spokesman—whose name never vas made public, bin ivhose int- i«ls mlpht have been Wilson •Vyall or William I. Flanauan. his u.lnager and press secretary— nerely said 'em for him. The apparent attempt was to see what public reaction would be. But because the statements were so vague, the reaction was nil. Eisenhower Speaks in Broad Terms Genera! Elsenhower in Denver has pursued a slightly different course, though with the same effect. The general's press conferences and pronouncements have thus far been in such broad terms that somebody else has had to come along later and say what he meant. General Eisenhower made : one non-political speech before the Vel- erans of Foreign Wars In Los An- gelcs. He Is scheduled to make another non-political talk before the American Legion in New"York If Governor Stevenson makes Ihe same kind of talk before the Legion, a whole month of the campaign will have been wasted, with no voter hems note to tell what either of these characters Glands for. •At Ihe Gallup, N. At., Indian pow-wow, the general told 10 000 red men that they "must exercise their newly granted right of universal suffrage lo the full as, a demonstration of good citizenship." Somebody else came along later and interpreted this Indian language ns meaning that they ought to get out and vote. The day before, at Denver, Ihe Ecncral came forward with the pro- i*uncementL "I,would support and press lor adoption of legislation designed to lighten the burden of Ihe high cost of living on our senior citizens." There might be.sone Interpretation lhat this meant, the general hart in mind selective price controls or a rosl-of-llving subsidy for the old folks. But Jim Hagerty, the general's new press secretary, was good enough to come out nnd explain for the boys that what he. meant wtis increased old-nil!; assistance payments under trie Security laws. General Eisenhower's widely heralded huddles '.vith John Foster Dulles, on foreign policy have also been a trifle on th uncrtaln sid. Dulls came out of one two-hour conference saying Ihe g e n e )• a 1 agreed with him "that'the trend of our present foreign policies is to put our nation in the greatest peril it has been in durimr the entire' course of our national history." The general reaction to this In Washington was that Dulles and Eisenhower should know. They both helped make those policies and carry them out. Ike in NATO and the ex-ambassador in the UN and the Pacific. Just how Mr. Dulles is goins lo abandon the policy of containmen of communism and adopt a more aggressive policy, without going to war, he never has explained. This penchant for vague talk seems lo have affected some of the general's other callers. Thus 'a group of farm stale senators and congressmen came out saying: "We know lhat Genera! Eisenhower, with his family roots in our great farm country, j.s goins; to present positive, forward-looking farm policies during the campaign," Hog markcte ami grain pits never quivered at Ihis. And no farmer .knew what lo expect in the way ot soil conservation payment There is. of course, a certain safe ty in this kind of fuzzy language. . Thus Allan Kline, Ihe Farm Bureau Federation bead, came out of his conference with Elsenhow- er, saying that the general "apparently favors a flexible farm Price support policy." By this statement, Mr. Kline succeeded In putting his foot in Ihe general's mouth in a great big way. There will' be repercussions on that one for a long lime to come.

I've just received a copy of one protest letter sent lo MOM boss 3ore Senary 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 nek on pur business, which never las been' tainted by gamblers owning a piece of any professional golfer.
