Judge Cherry on KLCN Monday, July 28-11 to 11:30 A.M., 1 to 3, 5 to 6:30 P.M. Mississippi County Picks Cherry ARKANSAS PICKS CHERRY THE MARCH IS ON! Join with us as Mississippi County marches to victory in Judge Cherry's vote parade Tuesday, July 29. With East Arkansas solidly behind him, Judge Cherry moves into the state to add county after county to his parade as the third term candidate and his political opponents "fiddle" and "hop" from pillar to post, trying to get the nod from the "governor makers." It's Cherry picking time in Arkansas! STRAIGHT TALK TO HONEST PEOPLE We believe that the people are disgusted with McMath's bid for a third term. The corrupt, wasteful record revealed by the Highway Audit Report and his "toadying" to Harry Truman and all his quack ideas as well as his worthless promises brand him as a demagogue. Jack Holt's fight against the ,1939 Bond Refunding Bill—which he so glibly misrepresented in a speech recently in Blytheville—which bill meant so much to every property owner in Eait Arkansas and which action on his part endangered the property of every resident of this county—his stand in this matter forever alienated any claim to the vote of Eastern Arkansas people, and these same people told him in the elections of 1942 and again in 1948, "you won't do." For four long years Ike Murry has held the office of Attorney-General of this State, yet not once until he began to make sounds like a candidate for governor this spring has he ever raised his voice against the evils of the McMath administration, particularly the evils of the Highway Department which are admitted by its vice-chairman, Jim Crain, In the Audit Report which both Crain and Murry signed. Boyd Tackett spent a short time in Congress where his principal activity was in behalf of Arkansas Power and Light and private power interests. He did,not again risk the judgment of his people by running for re-election to Congress.
