Large, cheering crowds turned out in several cities in Dfocie to cheer the GOP presidential nominee. It evin had newspaper writers out of Washington talking about the "not so Solid South." Nobody at this time is able !o say with ' »ny degree of accuracy how the South fs frolng to vote, come November. But one "thing should be pretty clear to everybody. It may be that all the people, or a irreat number of them at least, who heard and saw the general will support him »nd vote for him in the cominu jreneral election. But their nreserce and (heir shouts do not assure that will be thp case. Whenever somebody notes that this candidate or that candidate fs a winner because his listener* are so nimm'"i »'"' ·· vociferous, we always think back to the Al Smith-Herbert Hoover '·ampai'rn. Miny were the tulks irmrle over the radio during that campaign, and crowds seemed to compete with each other in seinT which could make the most noise over the fondest oe- rid of time. Everywhere Governor Smith went, the recention from the nubile wa« tremendous. If size of the audiences and the racket they made WM any indication, he was pohij? to snow under his Republican opponent. But he didn't! It was the votes which counted. And the votes weren't, there to elect him. Sc. regardless of the excitement which ·ttends the candidates on the'r trips about the country, nobody really will know who's favored as nresident until the votes are in on the nio;ht of the November election. It's nice to have crowds, and to hear cheers ·I'd to receive slaps on the back--but it's a lot nicer to «rct the votes when the people go to the polls. ..., , ,,_ ur-^U- i i n i-- - -,, mi ^M Wise Choice Herbert Thomas of Favettcville has ·ccepted leadership of a citizens' movement beinsr organized to study the state's Highway program and recommend changes In the program. We who rmvc followed the reoorts of the Highway A u d i t Commission, on which Mr. Thomas served, and hnvn watched the results of Highway Commrssion meetings, well realize that a coordinated rjroTam for!he state of Arkansas is nee'led. Object of the new move is t o remodel Arkansas road statutes to develop a long-range, in- tegniterl, efficient highway program for the state. The choice of Mr. Thomas to head formation of such a program is commendable. We look forward to much benefit for the ^;tate.

My grandson fs five, not two: and 1 am no college athlete. But J can attest that the above theory must be approximately correct. For never have I had so much exercise: never at the end of a vacation have I been so exhausted--so in need of the comparative peace of the political arena where one merely badgert politicians and is called names by presidents. Nevertheless, I would not have exhangcd this two weeks for a dozen trips to the Adirondacks, Maine or Alaska, My daughter will never forgive me for spoiling him, and when she sees the way the barber sheared his locks while 1 wasn't looking. I'm afraid she'll never let him come n|ain. I had intended coming back to the columnins business with a reverberating scoop on world affairs. But the truth is I have scarcely looked at a newspaper. My typewriter is unopened; my bulging brief case untouched. * * * Su before I get back to the grind of being the tough, hard-boiled poker under the political rocks for the worms of corruption. I hope 1 may be forgiven If 1 say just a word about the life a young man who has scarcely heard the word corruption, and who aside from "influencing" himself out of taking a bath at night wouldn't know what the word means.

And you'll be so tired at nleht. you won't lie awake thinking about the nroblems of the world. * * * My two weeks were spent on a farm on the banks of the Potomac where the stone forts of the Union Army once looked across at the Johnny Rebs on the other side in Virginia. The sharpened' trccj that were pointed down the lilll toward the river to keep the Johnny Rebs from crossing are gone now; but some of the stone ramparts still remain. And sitting near Ihem in the moonlight on those nights when I was not too exhausted even to sit. I could almost see the ghosts of men maneuvering for rn- sltlon In the shadow of the oak trees in that bloody, futile war 90 vears ago. The Potomac still flows on serenely in the moonlight. The fish j u m p in the moonlight. And it you toss a pebble from the cliff alongside our farm. Its ripples spread out in the moonlight as If no blood had ever stained Its waters--as if nn war or fear of future war ever r u f f l e d its surface on the way p.ist Washington, past the Whit* Mouse to the sea. I do not know how many sons and grandsons have marched forth to war as a result of decisions made on the banks of the Potomac. 1 cannot predict how many moi-e may march in the future. 1 only know--as I am left with strict instructions on how to feed two rabbits--thai u c of the prcscnl generation have a greater obligation than perhaps we realize. And if we can instill among our fellow men some of the love and faith of our qranrlchildrcn: If we can banish hale, deception, fear; if ve can truly remember the tcachinc "a little child sh.-ill lead them:" then the wars that have been foncht along Ihc Potomac and elsewhere somr day may be no more. *· 1 Nothing has ever been decider! hy war il'M could not be decided without it; and If decided after war. why not betorc?--Gen.

Her eyes were still on Harry. · · · 1 OU1SE WKSTON'S portrait of Adclc Miller was entered In the art show held in the (nil In CirccnwUh Village. Louise hoped thnt Harry would appear nt the opening, but she had her doubts. Hnrry had his own opinion of Greenwich Village nnd It wasn't complimentary. So Louise went alone.

Then she smiled as she recalled Harry* surprise a few weeks ago when she received her Irst order for a portrait And :here had been a further surprise for Harry when he learnc' .he sizable sum she had been paid to do the picture. No doubt this had made Harry all the more jealous of Louise and her painting. The show rooms were beginning (6 nil with art enthusiasts. Louise thought Harry should be showing up--if he were to come at all-and she began to search for him. Harry would probably feel quite out of his element here. He wouldn't know whtre to look for tiis wife's work. Louise drifted with the ttriarn of people and finally circled the rooms and came back again to her portrait of Adelc. A strange man was In the group in front of the painting. He examined the picture critically, nodding his head In satisfaction. "Good, good," he said to a neighbor. "That's very good." The man leaned closer to the railing and squinted at the number. Then he hastily consulted his catalogue. " 'Portrait of Adele by Louise Weslon,'" he read. "We will hear more of this artltt."

TU INK an/ Tomorrow Br WALTM UPrMANN New York - Governor Stevenson, too, is having to prove his leadership. But his problems are radically different from General Elsenhower's. As the nominee of the majority party he has to keep its principal factions together w.thout alienating the independents. Eisenhower's problem has been how to placate the faction he defeated and still attract enough independents. For a f eneration the Democratic to which Eisehower is belnj subjected. Stevenson, one might say, has been in the greatest peril of being run over by his own band- xvagon. The leaders of the component blocs hayc been most willing, and Stevenson's problem has been to take them into his campaign without alienating the independents.

' The fighting abated, their claims ceased to be irreconcilable, when the president withdrew and as the draft of Stevenson became more and more probable. Once he had been nominated by draft, it was evident that the factional issues were going to be settled in favor of party unity. Stevenson has not been the focal point of the unrelenting pressures war. needs hut on guard against aggression. We are seeing here, T think, the reappearance of the older, essentially liberal, philosophy which came down f r o m Jefferson · through Cleveland and Wilson. Stevenson is unmistakably in that line.
