MONDAY, JULY 81, 1950 •LYTHKVIUJC (ARK.) COURIER MBW» Dixiecrats Staggered But Still Are Undaunted By CHAKLKS BAKKETT { ATLANTA, July 31. (if,— states Aighls Democrats are reeling but undaunted after a series of sharp reverses In Southern Democratic prWbrles. ^Rionents say the movement, which took four states from President Truman in 1348, Is a dead duck —proven to lack grass-roots voter support. States Righters lay their losses to other causes. They predict they will recoup and even expand to new fields. Dixie voters seem to bo moving In both directions at once. Despite defeat of conservative Slates Right- ers, unusually bitter recent campaigns ousted two standout Southern liberals-Senators Graham (D- NC) and Pepper (D-FIa). Increased Use of Civil nights Increased use of civil rights and racial issues as vote winners was not^d In both Ihese states. The best conclusions seem lo be: 1. There is no upsurge of liberalism in the South this year. Opposition to President Truman's civil rights program, the spark that lit the States Rights revolt, is us fierce as cv?r. 2. Southerners generally still are steeped in loyalty to the regular Democratic Party, a 70-year tradi- ton. The "fioht it out within (he party" creed is growing. Every win-i nlnil Southern senator ihis summer haj^supported this view. if* Mosl Direct Blow Tlie first and most direct blow to Slates Righters came back in May. Alabama, one of the four stales to revolt in 1018, had a clear-cut choice. Voters elected -13 regular' Democrats, 28 States Righters. to their Democratic Executive Committee. (Four loyalist scats are being contested in court.) Then came South Carolina, another 1948 Insurgent. The Slates Rights Presidential candidate. Gov. J. Strom Thurmond, tried to oust BRnator Olin Johnston, a party loy- nlist. That wns the chief disagreement between them and Thurmond was licked. Another blow came last Tuesday In Arkansas. Former Gov. Hen l,a- ney, a founder and now chairman of the States Righters' National Committee, was beaten overwhelmingly In the governor's race by pro- Truman Sid McMath. Crowed McMath: "This will kill Die Dlxiecrat movement since Arkansas was definitely a target state nnd they obviously spent money here. It is obvious they are dead." Fighting for Principle Said Laney: "We were righting for » principle which <ve considered right. Apparently, the majority of the people of this state have disagreed with our viewpoint." Editor Ralph McGill of the At- Jtota Constitution agreed with Mc- ^>tn that the States Righters as a separate movement are dead But he added, in an interview, "sentiment for States Rights persists in the South, and It would be a mistake to assume ohterwlsc "The South will turn to a new approach, and new leaders to express this sentiment. I wouldn't be surprised to sec Jimmy Byrnes (former "assistant President," now "ov- emor-nomlnee in South Carolina) lead the fight within the regular Democratic Party." Attlee Issues Call For Tightened Belt Against Red War CHEQUERS. Eirg., July 31. W'l— Prime Minister Attlee called on Britons last night to tighten their belts once again while Ihcir country arms against Red aggression. rn a blunt-spoken radio chat from his official country residence here, Attlee warned his countrymen that this rearmament will mean sacrifices in their standard of living, which has Just begun recovering from the ravages of World War II. The Prime Minister, whose speech was carried lo Ihe commonwealth lands overseas, declared 'the fire which has been started in distant Korea tiny burn down your house."
