JUDGE STEVEIIS FOR U. S. SENATE ?
BY: J. R. GRADY
,m. v.axra iwan nowsnaner reDorts. grapevine
reports and barber shop reports that Duplin s first
son. Judge Henry X.. Stevens, Jr. of Warsaw, is be
ing urged to run for the United States Senate.
I have not heard Judge Stevens mention the
subject, in fact it was quite a surprise when I saw
In the claily papers, that he was even mentioned.
thnncrht nne miffht think that Sen-
ator Frank Graham has the election m the bag. Gov.
Kerr Scott is-openly supporting .Senator Graham
and so is the News & Observer. Now it would be
come an amusing thought, even maybe a spectacle,
for the Duplin Times to come out and advance
Judge Stevens for the Senate Post against Dr.
Frank Graham's News & Observer support. So we
- will hot attempt to invoke the power of the Duplin
Times against that of the News & Observer.
But getting down to home, the confines of the
County of Duplin where the Times is mostly read,
we feel we are justified in expressing ourselves on
the idea of JUdge Stevens opposing Graham. (In
parenthesis we will recognize that Bob Reynolds of
Asheville is also in the race but we'll stack our repu
tation, if any on the statement that he is merely in
the race and won't even hardly come out. In short
"we believe he is out in the beginning).
.' Dr. Frank Graham is undoubtedly a capable
man of national and world stature. He is a man that
North Carolina and Duplin County can be proud
- of. We have not one thing against Dr. Frank. There
may be many things he believes in in which we do
-not concur and on this, premise we will make our
i'ft we jrofertd iseeour government go attfhg in?
tfie liberal manner in which it is headed; if we be
lieve that our march towards socialism is the right
course, then we believe that Dr. Frank is the man
of the hour so far as North Carolina and the South
are concerned. .
If we believe that North Carolina and the Uni-
