Most of the States Rights sup- I port is expected to find its way | into the GOP column.

Their individual per- I centage estimates were combined | into a state-wide figure based I the total vote cast in each county I ki I94B. All of them were described as "educated guesses." Only a few I «ditors have conducted straw polls ty races all over Arkansas. In St. Francis every offii was defeated — including a fou term sheriff. Stevenson's strength, on the other hand, lies principally with those who do not wan£ a change —government workers, farmers, labor. , One of the Democratic nominee's biggest bupaboos in Arkansas is a noticeable feeling that he Is a Truman - picked candidate. Many of the editors reported a feeling of "disgust with ihe present administration" or a "definite anti- Tnirmin sentiment." "The final outcome in this county (Benton), will depend largely upon how completely Stevenson disassociates hims&Jf from the Truman policies," wrote Editor Everett Pate of the Rogers Daily News. Many Editors Back Ike Many an editor who predicted a Stevenson victory in his own county intends to vote for Eisenhower. Amon? them are Publisher C. M. Young of the Helena World, who thinks the Democratic nominee and towns. Editor Elts Huff of the Jackson county, described It in this way: "They can talk all they xvant lo but when they go to the polls they will remember the hard times of Ihe 1930's and will vote the Democratic ticket.' 1 And W. M. Courtney, editor ol the Wynne Progress In Cross County said: "This county depends heavily on farm subsidisation through CCC. FHA. PMA, etc., and it Is afraid it will be taken away," The consensus figures are at odds with street talk In many places. There has been more Elsen- hower — not Republican — talk throughout Ihe state, the editors report, lhan durine any recent presidential campaign. Businessmen and the conservative elements found primarily in the cities form, ihe backbone of the vocal Eisenritnver support, Strength Not So Noisy Stevenson's strength lies in the farm and labor segments of the population. It is not so noisy. The editors were virtually un- only 20 per County vote. Crawford County Editor Hugh Park, a former president of the Arkansas Press Association, M. C>. Randall in Crlttenden County and Caldwell nt Marianna all noted a more widespread interes in politics. Reporting an organized Republican campaign for the first time in 30 years. Park said women nre taking an active part in the ballot itt'e this year. "If fin any judge, Cherry OUTS his election (nomination us governor) to them," Park said, "they will be a big factor. They may silently elect Eisenhower." Saying he fell it would be "dan- erous" to predict the outcome so early, Park added: "Eisenhower was smart enough to lick the old guard so he may be smart enough to lick Santa Onus. He is stronger than most folks think in Arkansas." Park believes Crawford County will vote fiO per cent for Stevenson, 40 for Eisenhower, Randall said a major shift to Eisenhower in Crittenden County is "caused primarily by the young people who have the courage to dare. look into the future." And Caldwell said more "griping by Ihe little fellow" is evidence that interest in the campaign is going deeper than the professional polHicans. level. Any shift between now and Nov. •J will help Stevenson and hurl Eisenhower, in the opinion of Executive Editor Harry Ashmore of the Arkansas Gazette at Little "Eisenhower's vote is largely a protest vote ngafnst Truman and the Democrats," Ashmore said. "The picture can change, and any change, will be toward Stevenson. If Stevenson cnn succeed driving home the fact that he Is independent of Truman, and if Eisenhower doesn't start looking better, the vote will be heavier .in •[ \ the Democratic column that H now ' ' appears " WARNING ORDER ' In the Chancery -Court, Chlrka- wha District, Mississippi County, Arkansas.
