ELECTION House, runnnig into the lat* »fler- noon, was expected to friune the basic pattern for Die Democratic effort to put Stevenson Into the presidency. One decision of high moment may ne on tbe campaign role ot Truman as a retiring President who wants the reins of government to pass to Ste\'enson. Truman lias shown st^ns of Itching to hit the road against the Republicans with "give - 'cm - hell" speeches of the kind he delivered In his own 1S-M campaign.

The three candidates who were defeated in the preferential primary two weeks ago appeared on Clu-r- ryV radio "talkathon" to urge their supporters to vote for the soft spoken country Judge in today's runoff election. McMath. recently endorsed by President Truman in his rc-elcctinn bid and supported by both the CtO and APL's polilical league, said earlier last night in a statewide broadcast that Cherry was "preparing an alibi for his coming defeat." Appearance Is Surprise The appearance of U. S. RCJ>. Boyd Tackett, Atty. Gen. Ike Mutry and former Atly. Gen. Jack Holt on Cherry's talkathon—a marathon' question and answer session--ell- ! maxcd one of the most bitter cam- 1 palgns In recent Arkansas history. The volcanic word battles erupted following the first primary, when Cherry garnered some 91.0CO votes, allowing McMath only about a 0.000 vote margin to lead the five-man Meld, Both men broadcast last-minute campaign speeches over statewide radio hookups early this morning. McMath has predicted a victory by he'll win by 75,000 to 100,000 votes. 55,000 vote margin and Cherry say.s tween 8 a. m. and 6:30 p. m. Voters, going to the polls between 8 a. m. and 6:30 p. m.

McMath said "these are the kind of reports that have been coming in all day iong. . . the tide of this campaign has definitely .shifted in our favor . . ..lhe citizens of Arkansas have made up their minds definitely to continue this program that is building our stale and increasing the prosperity and well- being of all our people." Alter declaring that Cherry would charge that he had been "counted out" of an election victory, McMath predicted "they (the Cherry forces) will try to pull something else out of the hat before this election is over in a last desperate attempt to rally their demoralized forces." McMath reviewed the two-term program he has cited often before in the campaign and said he needed another term to complete it. "I shall continue to tight, for your program," he said, "and I shall invite the assistance of everyone to help me do this job including those who may have opposed me In this campaign. "I harbor no resentment and I I feel no bitterness because of the ' personalized campaign that has been waged against me, even up lo CHERRY (Continued from Page W to be restored to the slate house." The attorney general described McMalh's attacks on Cherry as "vicious and insidious misrepresentations to try to make the people forget the real issue." Murry charged that the McMath administration was one of "dishonesty, extravagance and waste." Tackett said he never would have been a candidate for governor "hnd I been In favor of continuation of lhe activities of tile present ad- ministrallon." He added that he would not dictate to his followers but that "1 am casting my vote for Francis Cherry." The congressman said the "special interest" charge McMath has leveled against his collective opposition "Is just a phrase borrowed from Harry Truman." Cherry has said on numerous occasions that his only special interest is in the people of Arkansas. Cherry's supporters read the ex- ploslve affidavit on the air from El Dorado during his talkathon there and again at Jonesboro. In the wrillcn oalh, Ij. E. Isom said McMalh's forces had gotten him to ask McMath the question whick injected the governor's personal life tragedy into the campaign. McMath had accused Cherry of bringing up the subject. The judge has repeatedly refused to answer questions pertaining to McMatb's personal life and has charged thai McMalh "sacrificed his family" by planting the question. Qui'stitins Identified Isqm previously had.been identified ns the man who stood up during McMath's appeal-since in Jonesboro lust week and asked him what was so "horrible" in his hfe that Cherry refused to discuss. The governor's reply, mentioning "great tragedy" and closer family ties, was an apparent reference to Hie 1047 slaying: of his father by his wife, Ann, who was exonerated on lhe grounds of self-defense. Isom swore that the question was prepared, written down and given him by McMath supporters. He said lie was and still is a McMath supporter but that he regretted being a part to this phase of lhe campaign. Cherry said: "I think this was one of the most outrageous tilings ever pulled in Arka'nsas politics. If anyone was for McMath before then, I can't see why they would be for him now." "Steal" Draws Reference At Camden earlier yesterday, Cherry had asserted that the only way he could lose to Mc?'ith was for "them to steal the election," He said steps would Lie taken to "send to the penitentiary" anyone trying lo steal'n vote. the last minute.
