H« told the group that candidates were jupposed to "get down in their knees" »'hen they went to see him. "You've got, to self^your body and soul to get any consideration from Jim Grain. Tackctt said. He said letters recently sent out by McMath to voters of Mississippi iounty describing road Improvements In the county showed that M5M09 went into "roads for Jim iraln" and $16,664 Into "roads for the rest of the county." Large sums also went into "roads for the Manila Big Lake Booster's Club." Taskett charged. He described the Booster Club as leader o" "the bloc vote over there." Criticizing the governors claim to rural electrification Influence, Tackett said, "Now, what did McMath have to do with Bull Shoals dam or with the REA program for which he takes so much credit?— I'll leH you—not one earthly thing." Tackett said McMath was now promising to make good all the promises he had made In earlier campaigns. He reminded the group that the state legislature is the i governing body of the state, and said "How Is he (McMath) going to be able to convince you that he can take the same legislators ha had before and couldn't get alonf? with, most of whom are being reelected without opposition, and give you a good administration now?" Tacket said that if elected governor, he would expect state legislators to do the same as he had done In the Arkansas and United Stales lr?t.slatures. to "vote the honest dictates of their conscience." , Promises No New Taxes Commenting on the schools, Tackett .said he would give the people a full regular term without additional taxes. He said that in 1951. when many schools closed without finishing the full term, that many ommunlties levied revenue taxes, as high as 70 mills in Parkin, to Veep the schools open. Returning to roads and highways, Tackctt said the state had recently paid S300.000 lor a right- : of-way In Northwest Arkansas which had been appraised for a value of S42.COO. "You big. rich taxpayers of Arkansas paid $258.000 more for that poor land than what It was worth." he said. Tackett said he would lake the highway commission "completely from the governor's control by providing for election of commissioners, or appointment by all of the state constitutional officers. "Sponsor a research and development program that will increase earnings for both labor and business. "Stop shameful waste, graft and extravagance in the management of our governmental affairs. (Honesty In administration and employment of well-trained, competent people will step up efficiency of every operating department Decentralize our (gencle* oi government and return the power to the grassrool level. "Recognize our Congressional delegation In Washington as the proper body to coordinate state and national relationships, and cooperate fully with the State Legislature. (Congressman Tackett has served In both state and national law-making bodies.) "Eliminate favoritism in state buying. Purchase supplies through competitivs bidding and enforcement of quality specifications. (Stop padding contracts to pay politic U pals—honest purchasing power fof every dollar spent is a must.) "Increased aid for state Institutions and welfare clienls by proper utilization of all slate revenue* and stabilization of our tax structures. Tackett's small crowd was accredited by some observers lo tha critical status of the Democrats national convention at the ilrr.e. Other candidates made brief appearances on the platform. Rep.

"My opponents say their plan j will take the highway commission j out of the governor's hands—after their term of office," he said. Taxes will not be increased under j .vviT.iinistralion unless "the pco- ; vole and do it themselves," he j d.
