PAGE TWELVH BLYTHEVILL15 (ARK.) MOKDAY, JULY 26, Shivers Of Texas In Runoff Governor After Unprecedented Third Term DALLAS, Tex. (AP) — Gov. Allan Shivers, who led Texas Democrats' bolt to Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1952, apparently faces a runoff election in his bid for an unprecedented third term. Hi s opponent :Ralph Yarborough champion of the "Loyalists" who stuck with Democrat Adlai Steven son in the presidential race. Unofficial returns from Satur day's first Democratic primary gave. Shivers a 17,158 lead ove Yarborough, not enough in th< four-man race to avoid an Aug. 2; second primary. Yarborough, 51, who had condemned Shivers breakway from the party in 1952, predicted victory for himself Aug. 28. "The Democrats of Texas," he said, "will vote to regain control of their COTTONDALE, Tex. (0 — Machine Gun Kelly, followed in the news by millions when he was, for a brief period, America's most notorious desperado, still drew 300 people in death. They buried Kelly yesterday in the Cottondale cemetery. Only one relative was present. It was Boss Shannon, who still calls Kelly ' 'George." Shannon is his 'ather-in-law. He loaned Kelly his 'arm home for Kelly's most famous crime, went to prison with him, finally reserved Kelly, a spot if ground in the cemetery. Like a lot of others, Boss Shan- ion filed past the casket for a ast look. When he saw. Kelly's face, he broke into a smile. "Well, George," he said, "you sure look nice." A little girl fainted during the ceremony. Flamboyant Kathryn Kelly, Mahine Gun's wife and partner in crime — some said she was the brains — couldn't come. She and her mother, Boss Shannon's wife, still are in prison. But she sent flowers — red roses. On one of ribbons was written OSCEOLA NEWS By Bettyt Nelle Starr who is attending Camp at fire* return trip party." Shivers dent. appeared equally con- "I welcome the opportunity to continue the fight for Texas/' he said. "We will keep running a good, hard, clean fight in this runoff and with the help of the people of Texas we will win it." Record Vote A runoff election is required when no candidate has a clear majority over all others. Arlon B. (Cyclone) Davis and J. J. Holmes polled 2.72 per cent of the vote tabulated thus far by the unofficial Texas Election Bureau and that was apparently enough to force a runoff between the two top men. Some "60,000 to 80,000 votes were still out. Democratic nomination in the past has virtually assured election, j A record 1,273,100 votes had been tabulated by last night. Shivers had 627,736; Yarborough, 610,578; Holmes, 19,115; Davis, 15,671. Texas Hepublicans, who held their fourth primary in history Saturday, voted in small numbers. No count was made since the candidates were unopposed. The bitter struggle between the conservatives and liberals—shown in the governor's race — overshadowed the sweeping victories of Senate Minority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson and House Minority Lead- IN THE PROBATE COURT FOR THE CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS IN THE MATTER OF: No. 2255 OHN W. WALKER, DECEASED.
