( C rec would spell nut in detail t h e Flowers said he believed i h c district's commitment toward segregation question would be decided in a similar case f pressed in others of a series of similar suits now pending in the Federal Court. Harold Flowers, Pine Bluff Negro attorney, accepted an offer of the Hughes School District of St. Francis County to spend around 5150,000 toward making facilities for Negrn pupils more nearly equal to those for white pupils. And he agreed to abandon the second phase of a Federal Court | suit he had brought against the rom Clarendon County, S. C.. which is now before the U. S. Supreme Court. The South Carolina case also attacks segregation as unconstitutional. An agreement between Flowers and Richard B. McCulloch. Forrest City, attorney for the Hughes district, made unnecessary a scheduled trial before Federal Judge equalizaton. He said it also would provide for dismissal of thi segregation phase "with prejudice." · meaning thiit this issue may not again be raised in the Hughes suit. , Action in the Hughes case would ; not prevent Flowers from pressing ; the segregation question in sev-; oral other suits he has filed which ! also allege racial discrimination. by various school districts. ; Georgia Senator . . Believed To Have * "Good Chance" Chicago -(/P)- Sen. Edwin C. Johnson of Colorado said today Vice President Alben Barkley is "the man to beat" in the battle for the Democratic presidential nomination. Johnson himself is supporting the candidacy o£ Sen. Richard Rus_ sell of Georgia. Russell's backers are coming into Chicago, a lull week before the opening of the convention. Johnson said he believes Barkley's wide popularity with Democratic leaders and the rank and Jile will thrust the vice president into a formidable position early in the balloting-. "People know him and like him," Johnson said. "He's the man to heat." Johnson said he did net believe Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois would be a candidate. He confirmed « report that Russell last week held a conference with Jacob Arvey, notional commlttccman , from Illinois. Arvey has been one of the principals in the effort to persuade Governor Stevenson to run. ; « , Johnson said Russell then re- ' turned to Washington and saw Pres'dent Truman, but he insisted he did not know what was discussed in cither of the two Conferences. Johnson said Russell expects a minimum of six ballots. The Colorado senator's own opinion is that it will run at least 10. He said he thought Sen. Estes Kefauver f Tennessee would set the pace in the early roll calls, hut that he expected Russell and Barkley to move out in front later. Johnson claimed that Russell would get votes in a large number of Northern states. Russell has Chancellor Francis Cherry of Jonesboro, candidate for governor of Arkansas subject to the Democratic primaries this summer, wound up a 12-hour talka- thon Saturday night in Fort Smith, after appearing in Fayetteville from 10 a. m.. to 2 p. m., and in Fort Smith until 10 p. m. Hn answered thousands of questions asked by people living in the area, and his question and answer series was broadcast continually over Fort Smith, Fayetteville -and Springdale radio stations. Many questions dealt with the Arkansas Highway Department i and Arkansas' school problems, j but almost every conceivable as- . pect of the campaign was included in the questions asked. He conducted a "Dollars for Decency" campaign during the talkathon, and his office reported contributions "increased- from a trickle at the start to a flood at its end." The idea is. Cherry said, to get as many people as possible to contribute small sums to his campaign "so that I can be elected on my own merits and not with the backing of big money interests." Today the chancellor planned another 12-hour radio talkathon in Pine Bluff and Stuttgart, and tomorrow will hold a similar lengthy program at Texarkana and- Hope. Hot Springs, Malvern nd Arkadclphia will come next. ; Steps Through Elevator Door, Falls 30 Feet San Francisco-t.flVBuilding Superintendent Robert Cody wishes he hadn't been so conscientious. Passing his building yesterday, he spotted what appeared to be an unlighted elevator standing vacant at the street floor. He stepped through the elevator door, but no elevator. Cody received a broken arm and possible spine injuries in his 30-foot fall to the basement. French Celebrate With Giant Military Parade Paris-Wj-A big military parade down the Champs Elys^es by 13,250 soldiers, 220 tanks and other armored vehicles marked the start today of Bastile Day celebratons in Paris. j Sixty jet planes swooped low j over the avenue as the troops and i vehicles moved past a reviewing I stand on which stood President ! Vincent Auriol, Premier Antone Pinay and ambassadors and mil- tary attaches of scores of nations. Tonight fireworks will be shot off throughout the country and there will be dancing in the streets. July 14 Is to the French what July 4 is to Americans. Youth Shot To Death In Fort Smith campaigned in 22 of them. He hasn't been in one yet where we won't get a substantial vote," Johnson said. The Democrats are already streaming into Chicago in advance of the convention they expect will be rough, rugged and wide open. Auto Company Broken Into During Night The series of almost nightly petty breakins at downtown Fayetteville business houses was con- I .tinucd last night when thieves j broke into the Green Che violet Company and stole an undetermined amount of money from the cash register and Coke machine. City police said (he thieves gained entrance by prying npen a window. Once inside they tore a hole in the p a r t i t i o n into the parts department and office. In the office thcy broke open the cold drinh machine f.r.A also stole several dollars from the cash register.
