Each one of the victors begins his d u t i e s w i t h treat opportunity to serve the people of his state. In the campaign for the ncmocrstic nomination for governor, the voters chose Chancellor Francis Cherry of Jonesboro over the present chief executive, Sidney McMath. The campaign was fought intensely--some say more bitterly th«n moat, but the majority of t h e contests fnr this office in Arkansas are vehemently conducted, and this was no better nor worse t h a n many others in the past. The newly-selected Democratic nominee--and the next governor of Arkansas unless, as the Associated Press said last night, "the political heavens fall"-- carried bin camnai'rn to the peonle with the use of the talkathon, a marathon question mid answer period over the radio. Some · feel that the new immiek put Cherry i n f o offfce. but to us It appears that Francis Chcrrv found the talkathon «n ide*l way for HIM to reach the voter*. The sime ft-heme could have wrecked the chances of some others whom H would not fit Cherry and the talkathon went together, and through the UM of the plan the chancellor who wan little known over the state when th§ contest opened, became almost an intlm»t« of the many listeners who hei.rd him talking to them day after dav, nir-rit afU» nhht, It would have been very difficult for th« .people to turn down a. ca-i- dldate who had become almost ·' constant guml in t.hefr homes.
