Gen. Ike Murry says Arkansas p o l i t i c s needs a bold experiment: A gubernatorial c a m p a i g n "based on the sincerity and integrity of the candidate and the honesty of his program" and elimination of a campaign "where public office is auctioned to the higl-est bidders." .Murry, generally considered a candidate for Democratic nomination for governor, outlined his views in a statewide radio address last night. He remarked that "I speak, not as a candidate for any office, but rather as your public servant." Murry spoke in answer to Governor. McMath's blast of five- weeks ago at the attorney genera and the recently-ended publi hearings of the Arkansas High way Audit Commission.

He said that testimony presented to the HAC showed t h a t "the 12-member Highway Commission recognized no obligation to the public "II became a tool for political expedi- sncy-a veritable blackjack over those who wanted state highway Purchase orders." 'Is it any wonder," asked the attorney general, "the governor became frantic when it finally dawned upon him that the sordid truth was going to be told?" He r e f e r r e d to McMath's charges that the Audit Commission had been reduced to a "political witch hunt." The governor also accused Murry of injecting himself into the hearings for po- lilical purposes. McMath is expected to he a candidate for third term. Outlines Proposal Murry then outlined his "darin experiment" for Arkansas politics which, he said "no honorable c«n didate can afford to mortgage hi future decisions for a large cam paign v contribution." ; " ·'--··· His proposal calls for: 1. "A stigma -upon the nex campaign . in. Arkansas when money flows freely--where publii office is auctioned to the highes bidders. 2. "An attitude of m.itual respect between the legislature and the governor. 3. "The candidate will accept Suard Group Reaches Chaffee Processing Under Way In Fort Smith Fort Smith, · Ark.-(/P)-The last arge sroup. of Arkansas National uuardsmen returning from Korea any no contribution that exacts or infers any promise other than good and efficient government. 4.
