Hardly a day has passed since ;" Faubus wrote in his .weekly •'newspaper that he was "going 11 West" and disappeared without sorti sorts reporting having seen ',;' him in the state* . •• Faubus, tanned -and -relaxed, •'• said he sought solitutde" to work : - on his book about his World :- War n experiences and that he ln has finished 150 pages. "It'll take about two weeks i more," he said, then he plans i'to return to Arkansas and that £would put htm back In the state if before the Miy 1 filing dead- •fline for the Democratic pri- rx'mary, •:- Will he run for afiything? f: Faubus laughed, "I don't think ;ii*ll even get aro'jhd to recon- r-sidering until just before the •^deadline," he said. : - : tt he runs, will It be for governor or the United States Sen• ; ate? No comment. If he runs for governor, how ;Will this affect his friends, many .-of whom have lined up in sup; port of Frank Whitbeck? "They can go ahead and support him and switch to me after the primary," Faubus chortled. Faubus declined to comment on the present political situation in Arkansas, but he said .he has kept up with developments "fairly well" through '/.periodic telephone calls to ^Panels "Shrimp" Murray, edi- ". tor of his newspaper at Hunts- j.ville, '." He said he has not received , -Arkansas newspapers in his "hideway," nor any other mail. Faubus said a published report that he may have gone west to talk with wealthy conservatives about financing a campaign against Sen. J. William Fulbright were erroneous. "I got spain offers; which were co-incidental," he said. Faubus said he returned to Arkansa-5 to take care at some business and pick up his World War II diary, which he needs for the book. He arrived in Little Rock Saturday, spent Sunday and Monday in Hunts ville and left from Little Rock Tuesday night. He would not reveal the location of his hideaway," but he dropped a clue by saying, "They are really fishing that Sam Rayburn Lake." The Rayburn reservoir is in East Texas. Faubus was asked about rumors that he left Arkansas because he was having some trouble with Mrs. Faubus. "Yes, we've had trouble about 35 years, and wo've been married 36 years," he said with a hearty laugh. A source close to Faubus said the former governor recently wrote a political ally that he would return to Arkansas before May 1 and that he might run, either for governor or the Senate, because he did not want either Gov, Winthrop Rockefeller or Sen. J. William Fulbright to win re-election by default, Late entry in a race would be nothing new for Faubus. He filed only 20 minutes before the d'sadline when he first ran for governor in 1954, He had in- nounced earlier that he would not be a candidate. GHQVfcP A offer «• cigar to a lud.y?
