Witnesses Appear Before Jury In Tuck Bishop Case Marines Use System Of Human Decoys Congressman Says He Should Hove Sought Reelection Little Rock - Iff) - rtcp. Boyd Tackctt last night climbed aboard t*-o bandwagon of Judge Francis Cherry, forming a united front against Gov. Sid McMath. The Nashville congressman, who finished third in the five-man gubernatorial field in Tuesday's Democratic preferential primary, joined losers Jack Holt and Atty. Gen. Ike Murry in supporting the Jonttboro jurist. Tackctt said he would not attempt to "dictate" tn his admittedly extensive following in Southwest Arkansas, but earlier in the riay he had stated he was the only dcieaied candidate "who can carry any vote." "On a n u m b e r of occasions, 1 publicly stated that if I did not make the run-off, I would vote for any one of my opponents against the present administration, including -Tudxc Cherry." said Tackett. "That I will do." Tackett stated today that he will not run as an independent candidate against Representative Orcn Harris in the November general election. "I'm a Democrat." Tarkclt said. ''I will support the Democratic nominee and T have no idea of running against anyone in the general election." He added that "I'm not mad at anyone." Tarketf denied t h a t hp a n d f Harris had made a deal whereby Harris would sunport Tackctt's gubernatorial candidacy in return lor Tackelt staying out of a contest between the two congressmen to represent the new district. "There d e f i n i t e l y was no deal." Tackett .said. "I got out of Oren's way. I did everything in my power to keen him from having opposition. Sid McMath thought he (Harris) was supporting me. I did, loo. Take a look at the returns. His district beat me. The people supporting me had every reason to expect T'd get his support too." "I realize now that I should have made that congressional race in the f i r s t place." j Magnolia, Ark.-^-Chancellor [ ^-* T {Francis Cherry, runoff candidate \\jOVQYuOT ill j for governor, said here today that I | within the last few days he had ! tuned down "more money than I . j knew existed."
