McMath's evidence turned out to be an exchange of letters between John F. Wells, publisher of the Arkansas Recorder and no ad- 1 mirer of McMath, and J. Alvin Kugelmass, whom McMath referred to as a "nationally known writer." The governor held up a photo- slalic copy of what he said was a letter written by Wells to Kugelmass, author of,,,an article about McMath which appeared, in the Kivvanis magazine, asking KugeJ: mass about his sources for some ! information used in the article. ' Kugelmass was quoted as reply- . in:; critically that Wells had lift- ! ed sentences out of context, been guilty of "the most superficial strategy in snipisn." and. "giving the wrong impression." in reviewing the article in the Recorder. Said McMath: "Johnny Wells, Cherry's boy. has made it very evident that here is irrefutable proof that he and Cherry nnd other members of Cherry's defaming brain trust have deliberately set out to ruin me by the most rulhless campaign of insinuation and condemnation in the history of Arkansas." j cusation was made in n Admits Mistakes Mide : Bulgarian protest to the The goveror said he had made ' Nations, mistakes in judgment al times!

John f.. Fletcher, Arkansas Gazette columnist, said yesterday in his 'The Arkansas Angle." Bishop's own brother, H. E. Bishop, of near Surnner, Wash., failed t o substantiate T u c k Bishop's story that he receiver! the furlough. Fletcher reported. Fletcher gives this resume of the case: "Bishop was g i \ e n one o.' 150 Christmas furloughs by Prison Superintendent Lee Henslee on December 19. He left Cummins : prison farm with $550 in his pocket. During several years he had accumulated $1.887 from monthly pensions sent to him by Ihe federal government as compensation ' for an injury suffered when hit : by a laundry truck during the first World War. "Records at Cummins show lhat he had sent exactly JI..100 to a sister, Mrs. Eugene Eidsnn of Springfield, Mr-., to keep for him. A balance of $'!5 was left at the farm when he departed.
