"I got a lot of help and encouragement from him. Those who weren't for the party's welfare, he didn't have any use for. He was trying to build a militant organization." Remmel said that during Rockefeller's move into dominance in the party, he was compelled to place trusted friends in key party positions. "But he did it to strengthen the party, not to hurt the Old Guard," Remmel said. Both Ross and Remmel believe that the two-party system is here to stay.

By JOHN R. STARR Associated Press Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Reports persisted during the early years of this decade Siat Winthrop Rockefeller, in his drive to build a two-party system in Arkansas, was purging the Republican Party of its Old Guard. "There's no truth in that," said Pratt Remmel of Little Rock. "It's just not true," said Lonte Ross of Conway. Remmei and Ross were active in the Republican Party before Rockefeller ever thought of moving to Arkansas. They remain active today as members of the Republican State Committee. Remmel was, indeed, the first Republican to capture a major ernment," Remmel said. "We can build the party, but it will take work on the part of many people, not just Mr. Rockefeller." Remmel said he would be a member of the governor's advisory committee as well as the party's state and county committee. "I'll help where I can," he said. The main thing Republicans can do, Remmel said, is to help Rockefeller be a good governor. "And we have to be very careful not to alienate the Democrats and Independents who voted for Mr. Rockefeller," he said. "We've got to try to keep them in the attitude of co-operation with the governor." The 71-year-old Ross, who attended his first GOP state committee meeting in 1924 and who has not missed one since, said the people will force Democratic officials to co-operate. "The people will back the governor up," Ross said. "Unless those fellows (legislators) do what they're supposed to do and back up Mr. Rockefeller, they won't be back." He said he had heard this sentiment ex- pressed by Democrats and Republicans alike in the five counties in which he practices law. * » * "The next step is to eliminate legislators in those districts where they've been obnoxious to the governor," Ross said. „„„..,,„ "Democrats who have the wel- ™* s - .E.E.

Ross predicted that Republican legislators will be elected in 19G8 in Pulaski, Sebastian, Garland, Faulkner and other counties in which the balloting was close in 1966.

Last year, the 51-year-old ex ecutive travelled an estimated 50,000 miles while president of the National Pepsi-Cola Bottlers' Association. During this time, while he represented the association from Canada to Bermuda, he worked at selling Blytheville and Arkansas across the nation. Recently he was named regional chairman for the March of Dimes, directing an area which encompasses Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Sanders was not born in Blytheville, but moved here when very young and considers the city his life-long home. He started his business career as a distributor in partnership with another man in 1938. At that time the beverage was bottled in Memphis and distributed locally. In 1942 they built the bottling plant on Ash Street which was destroyed by fire in 1954. The present facility on Elm and Mathis was built shortly thereafter and presently employs 55 persons. The plant serves Mississippi and Pemiscot Mo., Counties.
