WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1950 BLYTHBVILLS (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Hard Campaigners Donnell Henning Get Set for Missouri Election Battle By LARRY HALL * JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., Oct. 4. WV-A couple of hard campaigners "c squared off In (he general election battle for United States senator In president Truman's home Etate. AJln one side it's Thomas C. Hen^s. Jr., 47, of St. Louis. He's the man who beat the President's choice for the Democratic nomination in the August primary. On the other side It's Senator Forrest C. Donnell, 66, of Webster . Groves, a St. Louis suburb. He's Ibe Republican who was elected governor in 1940 and senator In W14. the only OOP candidate who successfully bucked the Roosevelt landslides in those years. • Both have records of squeaking through to a victory In breathlessly close elections. Last August Hennings beat the President's man. Emery W. Allison, by a bare 4,132 votes. Absentee biltots had to be counted before the result was.'certain. •"Like Donald Without D" Donnell (you pronounce it like Donald without the final "D") had no primary trouble. But in 1940 he won the governorship by 3.613 and in 1944 he was elected senator by a mere 1,900 votes. All that stacks up as a close battle between strikingly different personalities. Donnell has been such a perslst- • an critic of the Truman administration he has been likened to a hair shirt. As governor and as senator he has gained a reputation us careful I-dotter nad T-crosser. The story goes that once, (overnor, lie issued a proclamation designating "Star Spangled Banne Day." when the day came, he Ar)iMed on observing It by rising mrt singing the national anthem in his executive offices. Once he amended his campaign expenses statement to Include- a ten-cent item he had overlooked. And when he voted an absentee ballot in the August primary, he carefully called attention to a typographical error.

LOUIS. Oct. 4. W)—The Independent Petroleum Association of America said yesterday that a minimum of governnie'nl controls Is essential to a continued adequate supply of petroleum. In a statment, adopted by the membership the group also called for maintenance of existing basic tax provisions relating [o oil and gas, »n adequate supply of essential materials to operators and a primary reliance on domestic resources. "While a full scale war would justify some types of controls, present conditions do not Justify such controls over the domestic oil producing industry." the statement said. The statement also said that existing basic tax provisions for the Industry "have proven to be fnir equitable and effective in assuring adequate supplies of oil." The group commended the Congress for leaving these provisions "unchanged over a long period of years."
