BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGEOTk McMillan Jumps would have removed the two per fertilizer—a matter on which it is will remark when they get under- likely the other Cherry opponents way. McMillan, the first candidate to announce against Cherry for a second term Democratic nomination, also was the first to formally launch his campaign. SHERIDAN (AP) — Gus McMillan says that "if Francis Cherry can show me a single industry he has brought into the state I'll get o,ut of the governors race right now." The Sheridan candidate tcld his audience Gov. Cherry "has been running off to New York, spending your money and, then trying to tell you he's getting industries for the state." McMillan teamed with another candidate, state Sen. Guy Jones of Conway, in denouncing the incumbent, his administration and his alleged personal allofness. Jones was the only one of McMillan's four opponents, including Cherry, who accepted an invitation to share the speaker's platform at the Sheridan real estate dealer's formal campaign opener here Saturday night. McMillan and Jones expressed only the highest regard for each other. Neither mentioned the remaining two candidates, Orval Faubus of Huntsville and J. M. Myers of Springdale. Jones, the first to speak, said the only reason he'd heard advanced for renomination of Cherry is "that he's running for a second term." Jones declared that Cherry isn't "the real governor." He accorded that honor to Leffel Gentry, a Little Rock lawyer, who was Cherry's campaign manager two years ago and now is state Democratic chairman. The Conway senator charged that Leffel Gentry has been paid "for political influence" through a $2,500 fee for drafting a legislative bill and through other lucrative legal fees. Jones said all he wants in this county (Grant) is "second place to Gus McMillan," and asked that "if you can't vote for Gus, vote for Guy." McMillan criticized the employment of Dr. Ewing Crawfis, a Californian, as State Hospital superintendent, and Herbert Eldridge, a Texan, as highway director. He said both positions could have been filled from within Arkansas. Cherry was blamed for both hir- ings even though the State Hospital Board employed Crawfis and the Highway Commission engaged Eldridge. McMillan .called Eldridge "a foreigner without a poll receipt," and promised to send Crawfis "back to California." The candidate blasted Cherry for his approval of pruning of the welfare rolls and declared that the governor had called clients on old age assistance rolls "old deadheads." He rapped the governor for vetoing a 1953 legislative bill which cent sales tax from feed, seed and MCCARTHY (Continued from Page 1) as witnesses. 2. Roy M. Cohn, general counsel for McCarthy's subcommittee, pressed Stevens as to. whether the Army had not drafted a proposed statement by McCarthy last .October announcing the subcommittee's inquiry into alleged subversion at Ft. Monmouth, N. J., was being called off. Stevens said he had no recollection any such statement was proposed. He said he did recall a proposed statement to the effect that the Army was co-operating with the senator. Cohn asked that the secretary'sand any other notes as to the proposed statement be subpoenaed for this hearing. Chairman Mundt (R-SD) agreed this would be done. 3. Cohn hammered at Stevens' denial last week that McCarthy's opposition caused Stevens to decide against removal of Maj. Gen. Kirke B. Lawton as commandant at Ft. Monmouth. Stevens stuck to his stand that, although he sought McCarthy's reaction as to possible relief of Lawton from his command, his decision against relieving the general 1 was not due to McCarthy's opposition. The entire morning session was taken up by questioning Stevens by McCarthy and Cohn, with a few assists from Jenkins. Jenkins repeatedly protested Stevens was not answering questions directly and intervened to get a specific answer. WEATHER (Continued from Page 1) Arkansas River rose 6.6 feet at Fort Smith during the 24-hour period ending at 7 a.m. this morning. The river is expected to crest there at 23 to 24 feet Monday.

As the rebels pushed toward the center of Dien Bien Phu by attacking again and again, the French threw up new defense lines. But all the.time losing precious ground. French warplanes strafed and bombed Vietminh reserves encamped in the surrounding jungle- covered hills and hit at antiaircraft and artillery positions. They also slashed enemy supply routes which fan northward to red china. Ytth the Courts ..COMMON PLEAS— American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Corp. vs. C. R.

BIG FOUR (Continued from Page 1) problems." The broadcast said North Korea would rtccept no other plan for Korean unification except its Foreign Minister Ntim Il's declaration to the conference that nil foreign troops must withdraw from the peninsula and Korean-wide elections name a new government, without any foreign supervision of the vote. The United States has just ns emphatically bucked South Korea's insistence that elections for North Korean members of the present South Korea Parliament be held under U. N. supervision. South Korean Foreign Minister Pyun Yunp: Tai was the only speaker listed for the contimmtion of the Korean debute in today's general conference sessions. Dulles, who before coining to Geneva had been reported doubtful any progress would bo made on Korea, had devoted most of his efforts to tin attempt at building up the Asian defense alliance he has proposed. After talks with British Foreign Secretary Eden and French Foreign Minister Bidault on the subject, the U. S. secretary was known to be optimistic about chances of such & pact coming into effect. Neither Britain nor France, however, apparently was ready to announce any such alliance during the Geneva conference. Dulles' final step to bolster the Allied position in the Pacific was to convoke a meeting yesterday of the Anzus council—the mutual defense alliance of Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Indochina Discussed They discussed the critical situa- tion'in Indochina, and particularly the plight of the besieged French Union garrison at Dien Bien Phu. Australian Foreign Minister Casey said Under Secretary Smith laid before the meeting- new information he had brought from recent top-level discussions in Washington. As yet no concrete proposals have been made for halting the Indochina war, but both the French and the Communists were reported agreed that partition of the Far Eastern battleground was not an acceptable solution.

'OhV IHPSE INSPECTION Call 3-8233 QUESTIONS and ANSWERS Q. IF I COME INTO A. A., WON'T I MISS A LOT OF FRIENDS AND A LOT OF FUN? A. The best answer to this is the experienct of the thousands of men and women who have already come into A. A. In general, their attitude is that they did not envoy real friendship or real fun until they joined A. A. Their perspective on both has changed. Many alcoholics discover that their best friend* are delighted to see them face up to realistically to the fact that they cannot handle alcohol. Naturally, it is important to distinguish between friendship and casual barroom acquaintanceships. The alcoholic is likely to have many "acquaintances" whose conviviality may often be mistaken for friendship. Thia he may miss for a while. But their place will be taken by the hundreds of A. A.'s he will meet—men and women who understand him and accept him and are willing to help him sustain his sobriety at all times. Q. HOW CAN I GET ALONG IN BUSINESS WHERE I HAVE TO MAKE A LOT OF SOCIAL CONTACTS, IF I DONT DRINK? A. Social drinking has become an accepted part of busi- inss enterprise in many fields these days. Many now in A. A. would be the first to concede that they had often transuded important business in bars, cocktail lounges, hotel rooms or even during parties in private homes. It is surprising, however, how much of the world's work is accomplished without the benefit of alcohol. In fact, many who are now sober in A. A. admit that they used ''business contacts" as one of many excuses for drinking. Now that they no longer drink, they find that they can actually accomplish more than they used to. Absentation has proved no hindrance to their ability to win friends and influence people who might contribute to their economic success.
