Cherry predicted thai Mr-Math; a favorite of President Truman, would suffer a similar fate to that of J, E. (Duck) Taylor in Missouri Tuesday. Taylor, whom Truman backed, was defeated for the Missouri Democratic senatorial nomination by stunrl Symington. McMath was openly endorsed for n third term by the President last month. Cherry, who ran less than 9,000 votes behind McMnth in the pief- mim he had referred to in that jercntial, was asked if McMath had statement as "he" was Judge offered, him anything — :md if so Cherry. ' ' ' The governor tore Into Cherry : again with the charge that a "divorce jrnckel" had been going on n the chancellor's court.

Cherry: "Sid, you have been running for office ever since you got mil of Ihe marines." At this point a man who identified himself as Short Moore stepped onto the platform. Holding one hand above his head tlie, man pranced around and asked McMntli thnn to say "Francis, I sec you have a lot of supporters here."
