PACK EIGHT toL. l 1ntit v ii.L.i!i , sis^x. ill, Experience Lack Hampers GOP, Says Fulbright Senator Predicts Victory in 1954 And 1956 Elections IJTTLE ROCK (AP) — Sen J. W. Fulbright says that lac' of previous experience in go\ ernment is hampering the Re publican administration. Fulbright spoke last night at Young Democrats of Arkansa meeting here at which former Oov Sid McMath took southern Demc crats to task for helping Junk thi party's loyalty pledge. Gov. Cherry, who defeated Me Math for third term last summer has been credited with helping tc shelve the pledge at a recent parts rally in Chicago. Fulbright, in an off-the-cuf speech, .predicted that the Demo crats would regain control of Con. gross in 1954 and probably elecl th« president hi 1956. McMath, considered an unan Bounced but certain candidate to oppose Sen. John L. McClellan .for his post next year, wanted to know "what is so horrible about the loyaltj' pledge which was adoptee at the 1952 national convention.' He said it merely required delegates to "do what they can to see that nominees of the convention go on the ballot in their states ns Democrats." He also said that he didn't have iftuch respect for "Democrast who helped carry out a Republican program." "They would be doing themselves and the Democratic Party a service if they openly called themselves Republicans," said McMath. McClellan, who supported Cherry In last summer's campaign, was termed by McMath at that time as the "Republican senator from Arkansas." Neither Cherry nor McClellan was present at the meeting.- Rep. Brooks Hays and former Oov. Homer Adklns attended. Lt. Gov. Nathan Gordon said that In Conway County "we're not iyo- ing to let Eisenhower Democrats vote In the next primary." - A seldom-invoked party rule could be used to bar Democrats who voted for Eisenhower from TO- ting in ne*t year's primary. GOP (Continued from Page I) a chance for this country to provide not only technical help to other nations but "the kind of leadership which understands their problems." "If we don't give it, Russia will." she declared. She was an alternate delegate to the recent United Nations Educational Scientific, and Cultural Organization meeting in Paris. Miss Marion Smith of Little Rock, Ark., co-chairman of the National Federation of Young Republicans, said that a change of 2,720 votes from Republican to Democratic In four districts could have given the Democrats control of Congress in last year's election. She urged party lenders to concentrate next year on 85 marginal congressional districts in the battle for control of the House. Summerfield told a banquet audience of 1,000 women and a few men last night that the American people voted for Elsenhower last year because they were sick of war In Korea, of government by crisis, of graft, scandal and corruption. "They were alarmed at our attempts to cuddle up to communism 'abroad and to coddle it here at home," he declared. Summerfield called Eisenhower "our greatest natural resource" and "our greatest deterrent to World War ni." Stevenson's Proposal Dismissal He said it was true, as Truman had charged, that there was n "wrecking crew" in Washington. But what was being wrecked, he added, was Truman's budget, economy-stifling controls, and Truman's belief that warfare between the legislative and executive branches measured the vigor of government. He dismissed Stevenson's proposals for new attempts to negotiate with the Russians as splendidly phrase "and splendidly free of any new thought or any fresh 'understanding of the great problems besetting the world." Summerfeld said the Democrats never hesitated to promise anything and, never worried about | carrying out those promises. I The six conference representa- 1 tlves chosen to meet with Eisenhower .at the airport were Ray C. Bliss, Ohio Stale Republican Chairman; Morton H. Hollingsworth, Illinois chairman; Mrs. John T. Thomas of Belleville, 111., state vice chairman ;Mrs. Clifford Laws, President of the Illinois Federation of Women's Clubs; Mrs. W. Press Hodgkins, head of the Citizens for Eisenhower group in Illinois, and Mrs. Jewel Rogers, vice chairman of the Cook County (Chicago) Young Republican organization.

"I am very happy to be free in the free world," he said. "For the first time in seven years I have been able to say what I truly think. . . . I shall again have my freedom of religion.'
