   Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - April 29, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma                             County Candidates Wind Up For Finishing Flurry Before Tuesday Balloting _ __ w. i i it 11 _ i .T 'DnnCnf By ERNEST THOMPSON The "last huzzah" sounds the end of the first lap of the Oklaho- ma political derby this week as state voters troop to the polls to have the last word in the Tuesday primary election. Pontotoc County's politicking winds up with a flurry Monday at a giant Glenwood Park rally in Ada. Then, the hopefuls await the decision of the voters Tuesday in S3 county precincts. In most races, the goal is to make the May 22 runoff election, and thence to the general election in the fall. The waning campaign has been historic in some ways and rather ordinary in others. One unusual aspect is the time of year. This is the first time the election has been held this early. Heretofore, it was reserved for the hot days of July. But, it has been ordinary in that little voter enthusiasm appears to have been generated by the can- didates. It has been one of the most subdued campaigns in years. Thus, a small turnout is expected perhaps no more than In Pontotoc County, most of the attention is'focused on two legis- lative races, the sheriff's candi- dates and a couple of other county offices. Most of the talk centers around the. local situation rather than the loud campaign for gover- nor. The state senate campaign has pitted veteran against veteran. Sen. Buck Cartwright didn't file for re-election, throwing the race wide open. Virgil Medlock, former senator from Lawrence, announced h i s candidacy even before Cart- wright stepped out. So did Rep. Allen G. Nichols, Wewoka, w h o was once a powerful figure in the state senate. They were then join- ed by Rep. Robert Ford, Ada, and Buster Harden, Stonewall. A runoff in that.race is virtual ly assured. Medlock, Nichols and Ford have made vigorous cam- Seminole County for the past eight years. Medlock lost it to Glen Col- lins, Konawa, eight years ago and Collins, in turn, dropped.a deci- sion to Cartwright in 1958. Ford's entry into the senate race left his representative pos'. open. Clive Rigsby, Otto Strickland, Jay W. Hester and Philip T. Mil- ner filed for the post. Hester and Rigsby are Ada businessmen. Mil- ner- and Strickland are both from Allen. It's the first race for all except Strickland who has been a representative from this county and was once elected in Atoka County. A runoff is also expected in that five years. Griffin was runnerup in the' 1960 election. County Clerk J. .D.

The political winds of Pontotoc County are1 notoriously change- able, but it appears Raymond Ga- ry and. George Nigh have'the best chance to "carry" .the county in the governor's race. Fred Harris and W. P. Bill Atkinson have the U. S. Senate race. Rep. Tom Steed .is unopposed in the Demo- cratic primary. There has been some interest in the races for. attorney general, lieutenant governor and .state treasurer. In the treasurer's race, two well-known names in this area are Glen R. Key, Sulphur banker, and Johnston-Murray, .'former1 gover- nor. Cowboy Pink Williams and Bill Christian are also seeking the post.

Leaders Agree Now s Not Time For Top Talks WASHINGTON Kennedy and Brit- ish Prime Minister Macmillan agreed Saturday that they are ready to consider holding East-West summit conferences if assured of useful results. But they said conditions are not ripe for summit diplomacy now. British and U. S. informants said following day-long talks at the White House that the two leaders generally agreed there should be East-West diplomatic contacts at many levels including, when productive, the summit They specifically agreed that U. S.-Soviet discussions on the possibility of a Ger- man settlement should be continued; Informants said this: decision was reached after Kennedy gave Macmillan a report on conversa- French Seek To Smother Secret Army ORAN, AP) thousand French troops massed around defiant Oran Saturday for a .progressive "Operation Asphyx- iation" to smother the rule of the Secret Army Organization. Authorities ordered four thoroughfares cleared of starting Sunday to permit rapid troop deployment, and warned that motorists violating the park- ing rule may be fired upon. The Oran garrison commander. Gen. Joseph Katz, also warned that buildings from which gunfire is directed at his troops will be cleared of inhabitants. Arrival of troops Saturday from Algeria's interior raised Katz' strength to men, the minimum considered necessary for control operations in the port city, which is split into European extremist and Moslem nationalist zones of influence. Authorities believe Katz' plan to progressively comb through the European part of Oran may take a month. "We intend to asphyxiate this city if we have one high of- ficial said. "We will move slowly to avoid bloodshed whenever pos- sible." Oran so far has shown no reac- tion to the measures.

Khrush- chev told American publisher Gardner Cowles that he thought advance preparations should be made to give prospect of success- ful results from a summit confer- ence. Kennedy and Macmillan' were reported to be thinking of the pos- sibility of more than one summit conference if conditions were suit- able. However, informants de- clined to say that what they had in mind was a series of top level meetings, although the report opened that possibility. The British and American gov- ernment chiefs met for about two hours Saturday morning. They had lunch together at the White House and spent "another two hours in conference Saturday aft- ernoon. They decided to continue their talks Sunday, and a joint state- ment once scheduled for issuance late Saturday was delayed until sometime Sunday afternoon. Official word from the morning session was that the two leaders had discussed a wide range of is: sues, including Berlin and disarm- ament.
