The new Negro members of the committee were nominated by a subcommitte, headed by Fred Pickens Jr. of Newport. The sub- Committee also agreed "unani» niously" that a.U six newly-created positions on the committee should be filled by "Negro Democrats." The subcommittee asked for and received additional time to consider names submitted for the other three memberships. Last month's resolution by the committee made no mention of race. It merely directed the 51- member state commitee to increase. its number by six, taking ^n one person . from each of the Arkansas congressional districts; However, it was generally understood at the time that the purpose of the resolution was to permit the entry of Negroes into the committee. Various Negro political groups have campaigned vigorously for representation on the commiltee. I. S. McClinton, president of the Arkansas Democratic Voters Association, a Negro political group t^said this year that the Democrats would have lo decide soon what to do with their Negro members. In reaching into its funds to help party candidates, the commitee explained it was "for the purpose of acquanling the people of Arkansas with the Importance of election to office of those nomi nees of our party who have heretofore been designated as standard bearers in primary elections in vwhich a large majority of Ihc citi- "zens of Arkansas participated."

This estimate is- 679,000 bales more than last month's forecast of 11,832,000 bale. It compares also with last year's crop of 10,405,000 bales and with the" ten-year (194352 average of 12,048,000 bales. Under a rigid production control program, the Agriculture Department sought a crop of about 13 million bales.

State Democrats bubble with confidence over the Senate race. Republicans concede they have a toijgh, uphill fight to shove State Treasurer Val Bjornson (pronounced Byornson) into Humphrey's seat.

There probably isn't any Democrat the GOP would rather toss out of Congress.
