Such a manuevcr would give the lone Republican nominee, William A. Cheek, a distinct advantage over the Democratic nominees for Pulaski County's three seats in the Senate. The Republican's supporters could "single shot" their candidate by scratching all three Democrats. The three Ic poll the highest number of votes would win. Willis Townseiid, a Little Rock lawyer, said lasl nwht that he probably would file' suit today against Secretary of Stale C. G. Hall and the Pulaski County Board of Election Commissioners in an attempt to settle the case. Should Hun at Large Cheek qualified as a candidate late Wednesday nlyhl, and Hall certified his nomination for Position No. 1 jn opposition to Democratic Sen. Max Howell. The other two Democratic nominees. Artie Gregory and Ellis Pagan, are .without opposition. Townsend said he would base nis contention that all four candidates should run at large on the ground that there is no state law requiring candidates to seek specific positions in general elections. There is such a law in regard lo primaries. The question of position filing vs. at large filing would have ho effect on such state offices as governor, or county offices such as sheriff. It would affect only those races in which more than one persons Is to be elected. Hall refused to certify Cheek as an al-large candidate on the basis of an oph ;on from the attorney general's office. 27 1-3 33 1-8 35 1-2 73 3-8 52 57 1-8 38 33 3-4 COAL Fire Destroys Haynes School HAYNES, Ark.

From reliable sources, however, it was learned that: Putnam asked Cox lo get unanimous consent from the WSB to postpone further consideration of the Important case until the President's Advisory Committee on Mobilization holds its two-day meeting next Monday and Tuesday. Labor Members Reject When Cox broached that idea to the WSB, labor members angrily rejected it. They reportedly said the job of dealing with the miners' wage increase was one for the WSB. nobody else. . Cox canceled his news conference shortly afterwards. Should the WSB fail to approve the contract within the next few days tlie number of idle miners is certain to swell and may shut off up to 80 per cent of the nation's soft coal production. Lewis bargains for mnre than 350,000 bituminous miners. The last time they struck was in the long dispute over the 1949 contract negotiations. Persons close lo the WSB were uncertain just what Putnam had in mind when he sought postponement of the present WSB study of the case. It was felt that the administration was fearful over the political implications, three weeks before election, of a possible all-out coal strike that could follow WSB approval of the contract. It was also felt that if the WSB approved the boost it might be ciriticized as acting under political influences, especially In view of Lewis' recent and unexpected endorsement of Adlai Stevenson, the Democratic candidate for president. The discovery of quartz gold at Sutler Creek. Calif., led to the bonanza which made many great fortunes in the West. WHERE JIAIM'JNESS COSTS SO LITTLE BOXOFFICE'OPENS 6:.|5 I'.iM.

No Isolated Incident The Communist Invasion of that country, the Democratic nominee said, was no isolated incident but a "part of the whole world struggle." "We did not choose this struggle in Korea but our future depends on its outcome," he declared. "Some have suggested that we withdraw from Korea," he said. "This is a policy of scultle and run. Korea la not l!ie last ambition of the»Soviet Union—far from It. If we pull out of Korea, all of South Asia would be covered by the Communists." He said Congress had "rejected" the proposal of Gen. Douglas Mac- Al'lhur ihat the Korean War be extended to Communist China. This program, he said would be a "serious mistake." Stevenson had the os Angeles crowd sitting on the edge of its scats and howling its approval at his sallies against the Republicans.
