Sid Mc, Math calls the lawyers of East Arkansas "shysters" nnd tlie next day lie launches a liunl for voles in East Ar- 'kansas. For reasons best known to himself ami his polHii-al intimates, Gov. Mc- Jlath has turned to the "give-em-hell" ciimiiiugninB techniques of his presidential idol, Harry S. Truman. Pcuhaps he sees in this technique the success thai granted Mr. Truman in 1948. 1'cr- liaps he is merely attempting to strike a contrast between Ms campaign style and that of his quieter, more conservative opponent, Chancellor Francis Cher)'.v. At any rate, Gov. McMhth got his East Arkansas vole liunl off lo a stumbling start when he branded en mass the attorneys of this area as "shysters." Specifically, Gov. McMath last Friday charged that Ihere existed an "unholy alliance" composed of Judge Cherry, Sen. John L. McClcUnn, the Arkansas Power and Light Company and the "shyster lawyers of East Arkansas." These attorneys who are "shysters" to Gov. McMath are those who supported Judge Cherry. The Hlylheville Hal- Association was one of these groups of attorneys who came out in support of the Jonesboi'o candidate. H appeal's that broad generalities, with all the glaring inaccuracies inhcr- r'lit in them, are part and parcel of the "give-em-lieU" campaign technique. In protest against such wholesale, scultcrgun charges and out of respect for the Blythevilte bar, we feel we can do no less than proclaim our resutit- , nif'iil of Gov. McMuth's ill-aimed broadside at these attorneys. Their only "crime" was supporting Judge Cherry. lla<! they elected to support Gov. McMath, lie doubtlessly would have seen fit (o refer to them as the "distinguished and able" lawyers of Kast Arkansas. Gov. McMiilh is supposed to he an able campaigner. However, in using the "give-em-hell" technique in this fashion, we tiling he has emulated his presidential idol too closely. The governor, it seems, has put his foot in his mouth, too. Why Do Kings Love Us Like They Do? What is it about the United States that's so fascinating to jobless kings?

A Daily Reader Views of Others Human vs. Property Rights How often have you heard the statement sxtch as above, which would contrast human rights and prosierty rights? Many a time, doubtless, in these days oE the do-gooders, who would inflame th» people to political action. As a mailer o( (act there ts no conflict between human rights and property rights n_s such. There is no distinction, as such statements would Imply. The term "property" has no significance except ns it applies to something owned by someone. Property has no rights itself, nor value save only as human Interests are involved. There's a common practice this day and tims to bcmean corporate inihre-sts. It's a sort of hangover from the time whtu Roosevelt the First- (TecUJy) started whacking nway at the monopolies, the Sherman anti-trust law came into being, mid the politicians with more or less accuracy, spoke of the corporations ns hideous octopuses which suck the life blood out of the people. There's no difference between the natural rights and the rights its equity of the corporation and the individual. They are entities, with an altogether too drastic rf.tfereiUia.Uon i» their legal rights. y Public opinion, circumstances and desire have made many of the corporations exemplary of what the best citizen might wish to be in his community. After all, the corporations are formed by many different people. As they succeed their ownership spreads, attracting capital trom many investors. There's more sentimentality than logic, Less sense than nonsense in the oft repeated catch phrase, "human rights vs. property rights." —Plalnview tTcx.)

It can now be revealed that this was perhaps one of the most misrepresented and mi s understood battles of t h 1 s f'ttrr Eilsoi ell week. The story began when Dcmocra- c National Committee Chairman nk McKinney picked Michlan's young Sen. Blair Moody ns hairman of the Rules Committee. IcKinney explained that the job •as more or less routine. The Hies to be adopted were principal- to limit the length of nomina- ing speeches and ban professional lemonstrators from the floor. McKinney thought the Job would ;ive Senator Moody a brief 10 mill, lies or so on the platform and be ore the television cameras and o help him in his campaign for e-election. On the Monday morn- ng that hte convention opened, lowever, McKinney had to call in loody for an emergency strategy ession to meet a new crisis. Forces behind presidential candidates Avcrell Harrirnan. Sen. isles Kcfanver and Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota were on the warpath. They were demanding an extreme loyalty pledge of all delegates to the convention. First it required every delegate to promise that he would vote for the party's nominee. Then it proposed to ba from the convention any slate delegation that would not guarantee that the immcs of the nominees would be on its state ballot in November. Kcfauver .\Vunlcd the Resolution Senator Kefauver was the principal supporter of this resoUition. He wanted it for two reasons. The :irst- was that if he should become he nominee, his Dixiccrat oppo- lenls would try to bar his name ind his electors from southern state ballots. The second reason was that Kefauver was courting upport from the labor unions, which wanted an extreme civil ghts program adpted. Chairman McKinney sized up this demand in his Rules Coin- mil tee. He was to report out loyalty pledge that would first, keep the South in the convention and (ho party nnd second, rnnke sure that Gov. ADIjAI Stevenson's name would appear on the ballot in all 48 states. Stevenson had already been picked by Truman for support. Moody went to work with representatives of nil the candidates: Richardson Dilworlh. of Pennsylvania for Kefauver, Senators George and Ed Johnson for Russell, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr., for Hnrriman, Cuvl Rice of Kansas for KCIT, Col. Jack Arvey for Stevenson nnd Mayor David Lawrence of Pittsburgh for the National Committee, Ttic extremely mild proposal by Jonathan Daniels of North Caro- ing the pledge would not be seated the floor. It can now be revealed that. Senator Moody did this in exnhange for a pledge from Senator Kefauver that he would nol present n minority report, demand ing the stronger , pledge. Moody was Merely Middleman By so doing, Moody was made to appear as the leader of the lib erals. whereas he was actually (he middleman, supporting a com promise. This compromise hat been sold in advance to the Texas nnd Mississippi delegations. Wiier the McKir.ncy-Moody strategy fel down was in not selling it in ad vance to Senator Byrd and Gov evnor Battle of Virginia, Governo: Byrnes of South Carolina and Gov ernor Kennon of Louisiana. The Moody compromise, even ional Velvet," and penned the creenplays of the forthcoming 'Plymouth Adventure" and "I.ill." I've been looking at movie classics thut the public can't see and they simply don't hold up," rim. blonde Helen told me. "Some of them are movies that people •emember with great affection. They were wonderful in their time. But I was appalled at the poor writing." She's Vixen to Win It's battling Nancy Olson in one corner and Hollywood casting directors in the other these days. Nancy's fighting to prove thai a round-faced movie queen can do something more than play the loyal wife and the girl next door. Her cheeks don't cave in and her lace isn't mask-like, but she wants a whack at the "off-beat parts that other actresses get because their faces are all sunken and drawn-in. It's a casting fal- . . carry pictures ol axe murderesses and gun molls and they're all round- faced," Nancy wailed. "The other night I went to a party where they showed an old Theda Bara vamp movie. Know what? Theda was aa round-faced as I am." They Had Their Chance Ida Lupino is directing three movie tough guys in "The Differ- unco." but she's confessing that she gave them ihe chance-'to veto her before the film started. "I sent v/ord to them," says Ida of her three stars — Edmund O'Brien, Frank Lovcjoy and Bill rallman. "lhat my feelings wouldn't be hurt in the least if .hey ttirin't want to work with a female director in a rugged, outdoor picture like this. They lia^l :he right to turn me down. But/''''I thank heavens, they didn't." Delicate, feminine Ida's working in the desert heat and swamps with her hard-boiled stars and getting an earful of masculine language. "But I don't blush," I think men have she smiled, a right to Gary Grant isn't amused at Tony Curtis' habit of picking up the phone and saying, "This is Gary Grant," in a. voice that's an absolute ringer for the star's . . .

Tentative title for a new Marilyn Monroe flicker at Fox: "To'o Hot to Handle." Una, slating merely that it was the sense of the convention that honorable men would support the with the escape clause exempting' delegates who would have lo violate state laws to take the pledge, came as a complete surprise to these three states. And they raised so much cain about it thai the convention had (o back down and let them stay on the floor and in the party with practically no loyalty pledge ot all, Thts retreat was again engineered by Chairman McKinney, with a lot of help from House Speaker Sain Ray burn of Texas, Ihe permanent chairman, whose rulings helped bring the three reluctant southern states back in the fold. Senator Moody escaped hav- nominecs, was unacceptable to Ke- ? ing to lead the retreat himself. fauver, Humphrey and HarHman. On the other hand, their extreme loyalty pledge was unacceptable to Russell, Ken 1 and most of the southerners. In presenting to the convention Ihe compromise finally adopted, however. Senator Moody w a s forced to stale from the speaker's stand that any delegation not sign- Colonel Arvey did that by switching the Illinois vote from "No" to "Yes" on the motion to let the Virginia delegation stay in the convention. Colonel Arvey did this, it can now be told, to keep Kefiuiver from winning the nomination and to prevent the Democratic Party from being split wide open- got carried away by enthusiasm or, perhaps' by failing to thin! West simply led another spade to East's nee. East hopefully returned another club, but West could do no more ruffing. South could enter dummy with (he ace of diamonds to take second heart finesse, and the est of the tricks were his. South was set one trick, to be ure, but he counted himself lucky, 'roper defense would have set him wo tricks, for a penalty of 500 points instead of only 200 points, nstead of leading a second spade, Vest should have switched to the :insj of diamonds. It was obvious to West that declarer had n trump finesse to take. :t was nlso obvious, since -East lad played the king of spades on he Eii'st round of that suit, that South had the queen of spades. Declarer could lead either a spade or a heart after reaching dummy with the ace of diamonds—but he could not do both. If West had led the king of diamonds instead of another spade, South would have been forced '.o give up ihe ace of spades and one other trick, for a. loss of 500 points. Doctor Says — iN r.
