NorrhwMl ArkoiMo. T1M«, Sun., May 26, 1974 FAVITTIVILL*, *BKAH«AI Four Democrats Vie For Congressional District Seat LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- A, state senator, a mayor and two political newcomers vie for the Democratic nomination in the 3 r d Congressional District Tuesday. The winner meets the Republican incumbent. John Paul Hammerschmidt ot Harrison, In the Nov. 5 general election. However the Democratic nomine* likely won't be settled without a runoff June 11. Bill Clinton. 27, of Fayetteville. a University of Arkansas law professor on leave of ab scnce for the campaign, may be the leader, if being the focus Senatorial (CONTWUZD ntOM PACE ONE) popularity of Bumpers, the Ful- brighl television commercials call the race the "most crucial election in America," "more t h a n a popularity contest," and say. "It's okay to like Dale Bumpers and vote for Bill Fulbright." Most of the Fulbright gain developed when Bumpers re fused to engage in three hour- long live televised debates Bumpers, saying he was talk ing to people about what the believe to be the issues, said he did not have time for the de bate and did not want the race lo "degenerate into a public argument" between the candi dates. Public argument, the senator replied, is what the Senate is all about. He said Bumpers needed to have "the guts" to make people mad by standing up to them. Bumpers, said Ful bright, wanted to "duck the tough ones." "I don't believe the key to being a good senator is making people mad." Bumpers replied He told reporters to tell Ful bright to "load up the tough ones and I'll answer them." He said it was "more important what you stand up for, than who you stand up to." Citing inflation, energy short ages and other problems Bumpers appeals to the people to "join hands" in providing new leadership in Washington He rarely mentions Fulbright but voters know the problems-which, of course, Fulbright op posed in some actions--devel oped while the senator was in Congress. Fulbnght's effective ness is. by inference, ques tioned. But he has taken Bumpers tc task on the "join hands' theme. "Anybody who think the Senate Is going to give Ar kansas it'i fair share becaus somebody asks them to joi hands has got another thin c om i n g , ' ' Fulbright said "You've got to fight for it." The senator has told voter that Bumpers omits reference to his administration's action in doubling the state income tax. Actually, Bumpers' admin Istration didn't double it, though tax rates were raised o most incomes. The tax also wa eliminated on some income under $5.000. SENIORITY ISSUE Seniority has been a constan issue. The senator says it h; been valuable for Arkansas, no only in his case but also in th cases of Sen. John I McClellan, D-Ark., chairman the Appropriations Corrrmittei and Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, I - " Was criticism of foes is a valid leasurement. The youngest of the four can- idatcs. Clinton obtained the ndorsement of the state AFL- 10 Committee on Political ducatipn at its Hot Springs onvention and has received la- or support. He has been criticized be- ause of his age, because of his bor endorsement and because ' his work in the 1972 presi- ential campaign of the Demor a t i c nominee, George IcGovern of South Dakota, 'ho fared poorly in Arkansas. OTHER CANDIDATES The other candidates are: --James Scanlon, 38, mayor t Greenland. --David Stewart, 32, an attor- ey who lives at Danville. --Gene Rainwater. 49, a state enator from Greenwood. Scanlon criticized Clinton's abor endorsement, calling it ndicative of commitments be- ween Clinton and unions. The .ayor said his candidacy was nfcttcred by commitments. Rainwater, saying he and .ost voters in the district were onservative, said he believed Clinton's chances would be amaged by the McGovern is- ue. Clinton said he would defend IcGovern's candidacy against hose who, in light of the Wn- ergate controversy, wanted to cfend President Nixon's campaign. While Stewart, like Clinton, las never before sought public tffice, he was a member of the itate Claims Commission, by appointment from Gov. Dale Jumpers.

Pryor appeared on the verge of upsetting the senior senator until the Pryor effort seemed to run out of steam in the runoff. Pryor has denied he supported either gun control or unconditional amnesty as Faubus claims. He has challenged the former governor's stand on ill gal gambling and "cronyism. Faubus has denied he ignored gambling at Hot Springs. He said gambling was stopped while he was governor. He also says he implemented controls on the Insurance industry in Ar kansas rather than allowing ii to go unchecked as Pryor has asserted. Pryor has said education wil be his No. 1 priority if he gets in the governor's office. He has said he sees no need for a tax increase. Faubus has come-up with an income tax relief program.

The event at Gaslight Villag drew more than 5,000 person Sales totaled $400,000. in assigning committee chairmanships. He also said that, if elected, he would not use seniority as a defense of any campaign for re-election. It would be "breaking faith with young people" to encourage them to participate in politics and then tell them not to tackle an incumbent because of his seniority, Bumpers said. A Fulbright supporter, noting Bumpers had complained about the $10,00fl-a-year gubernatorial salary, smallest in the nation, said Bumpers also was receiving personal income in the form of a $12,50p-a-year appropriation for public relations expenses and a $30.000-a-year appropriation fo rupkeep of tfie stale's Governor's Mansion. The Internal Revenue Service said it was not persona! income. Fxilbright nevertheless questioned Bumpers' use of the money, saying, "I have nothing like that." The salary of a senator is M2.500 a year, but no free residence Is provided, although some expense allowances are given to senators.
