She Is India Edwards, vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee find director of its Women's Division. Ordinarily the irtea would set the hrush-off at Ihis stage of feminine political development — except that India is quite a vocal figure in the parly. Men. as well as women, besiege her office for appointments. In the Democratic convention headquarters, the Conrad Hilton Hotel, there are presidential campaign headquarters for Russell, Kerr, Harriman. Kefauver and others — and now as one steps off j the elevator on the third /loor there $5 a big placard: "Headquarters for India Edwards for vice president." Portrait Erected Mrs. Jennie O'Hern of Mobrldge. S. D., and Mrs. Francis D. Satter- i field, Atlanta, Oa.. opened it up! and locked up the portraits of their candidate. They plan a formal opening la-, ter. But even now (here is aclinn. i Volunteers have come In to do typing, get out press releases, answer I phones. The place has all the confusion of any other headquarters. The movement on hehalf of Mrs. Edwards — who has said she doesn't expect to be nominated but will campaign if named ,— was started in June in New York by a group of prominent Democratic women. Nrjrlnn Is Chairman Former Rep. Mary T. Norton of New Jersey Is chairman of the national group. The vice chairman, is Julia L. Crews, delegate from j New York.

Bh« &ro»' up In Nashville end was educated in St. Louis. She. was on the staff of (ho Chicago Trihime for 33 years ae reporter. society editor an«l woman's page editor. By an odd quirk, former Rep. Clare Boothe Luce, Connecticut Republican, recruited India unwittingly as an active worker for the Democrats. Over the radio shn heard the Ifl44 Republican convention address by Mrs. Luce In which she spoko for OI Jim. the gold-star buddy of OI Joe. Mrs. Edwards' only son bv her fltfil marriage had been killer! in the war. Mrs. Luce's speech shocked her. The next moruing she »-e-rrt down to Democratic headquarters and volunteered for work. .)

We realize, with five candidates in the race, the citizens of Arkansas face a serious problem in selecting- the right man for governor. As members of the Blytheville Bar Association we have known Francis Cherry as a man. We know that Judge Cherry possesses the qualifications of integrity, temperament, judgment, courage and experience not matched by any other candidate. We sincerely jrge his election THE ONLY CANDIDATE FROM EASTERN ARKANSAS The Blyfheville Bar Association, pursuant to the unanimous vote of the lawyers composing its membership, hereby publicly endorses the candidacy of Judge Francis Cherry for governor. For ten years, exclusive of two years in mili= taly service, he has been our chancellor, and our work and exueiicnce with him, in court and out, convinces us that he has the courage, honesty, experience and other qualifications to make our state a great governor. We, therefore, unhesitatingly, recommend that you support Judge Cherry and elect him governor of Arkansas. A Neighbor Who Knows Our Problems And Speaks Our Language lythevm n By ELBERT S.
