Jack M. Campbell. Frontrunners in the Democratic ranks today are former Gov. John Burroughs of Portales and Mouse Speaker Bruce King of Stanley, but there are indications a so-called darkhorse from Clovis may emerge between now and the Democratic pre • primary convention next Spring. Rep. Bobby Mayfield, D-Dona Ana, has indicated a desire to run for governor but his chances generally are discounted and Asst. Sec. of Interior John Kely of Roswell also has been mentioned. Who Is Roy Walker? But the man mentioned most recently as a "darkhorse" candidate is Roy S. Walker, director of the Federal Housing Administration in New Mexico, and possibly the man with the best outside chance of getting on the primary ballot. Just who is Walker? A native of Clovis, the 54-year old Walker has gained contacts across the state through his work with the FHA. These contacts may prove invaluable should he enter the race for governor. His background Includes Sisler said response, both monetary and support-wise, had been "very encouraging" and said people had been found in several key counties Who were interested in Walker as a candidate. His Assets Mere are a few of the things some veteran politicians think might work for Walker: —His work as FHA director generally has been accepted well by builders, bankers, and realtors around the state and through his travels around the state as FHA director he has made many friends and contacts. —His work as FHA director also has brought him in contact with labor unions around the state. —His many years as an oil dealer, and his position as a member of the board of directors of the New Mexico Petroleum Marketing Assn., may give him strong support in the oil industry. —His appointment as FHA director came with the blessings of Sen. Clinton P. Anderson and then-Sen. Dennis Chavez and while he might not now have the active backing of Anderson, or Sen. Joseph M. Montoya, he does not face their anomosity. He also has friends in the old Chavez faction. —His work in the State Highway Dept. and for the State menccment exercises for University Park X. M.

Walker is a relatively hand* some man with graying temples and possesses a deep speaking voice which could become a valuable asset if nurtured. Me apparently does not have many enemies, and has friends throughout the Democratic party. Born In Clovis His father, now deceased, was a conductor for the Santa Fe and Roy was born and reared in Clovis. He has two sons, Gene, a dentist, and Lyle, a lawyer, now practicing in Clovis.
