LAFARGUE SAYS LONG PROMISES BROKEN MA RTH A VILLE, La., June 30.— ID—Senatorial Candidate Malcolm Lafargue accused Sen. Russell , Long (D.-La.l, his rival in the ! July 25 primary of having broken 1 1 many of his 1948 campaign promises. The Shreveport attorney charged that the state’s junior senator had failed to get money to widen highways and to work for lower federal income taxes. Lafargue also criticized the state administration for proposing to transfer $10,000,000 from the welfare department into state highway department funds. “I don't have time to take up all the issues in connection with his many failures and broken promises,” Lafargue said of Long. Lafargue said Long had promised to seek federal funds to four- lane highway 71 between Shreveport and New Orleans and highway 80 from Shreveport to Monroe. Instead, Lafargue said, stretches of highway 71 were being blacktopped and nothing was being done on highway 80. “So we have high taxes out of Russell’s pledges to work for lower taxes,” he said. “We have blacktopping of concrete roads out of his pledges to make them into four-lane highways.” Lafargue said the transfer of welfare department funds was solely for “political highway bribes in behalf of Russell Long now and for Long candidates in state elections later.” “Most of the people who are supporting Russell are getting something out of it,” he said. “They’ve either got their hands in the pot or their heads in the trough. Lafargue was scheduled to speak today in Grand Cane, Longstreet, ILogansport, Pelican, Pleasant Hill, Converse, Zwolle and Mansfield. Lafargue will spend tonight at his home in Shreveport and start a swing through south Louisiana tomorrow. ------------- o-------- SAMUEL HUNTINGTON Samuel Huntington, 65, of 401 Hilton street, died of a sudden heart attack at his home Thursday afternoon.
