tatives; a State Senator; Cleric of

with, ot course, a United States
Senator, state wide. ' ,
; -Rumblings ' have been going on
quietly the past tew days and via
the grapevine I hava picked Up
few would-be developments. -
In the Sheriffs race, which is
usually paramount in Duplin, Sher
iff Miller may be opposed by Perry
Smith, chief Deputy under the late
Sheriff Ralph Jones, and or Joe
Sutton, Warsaw merchant '
' : In the County Commissioners race
it is reported that C. . Qulnn ot
Kenansville Is strongly considering
opposing Commissioner Dallas Jones
of Magnolia should he run and J. B.
Stroud and Arthur Whitfield, Ken
ansville township tampers, also are
giving it some thought Mr. Qulnn,
Is a former member of the legisla
ture from Duplin and Mr. Whitfield
is a former County Commissioner.
Melvin Cording - Is being . widely
mentioned as a Commissioner can
didate from Wallace and 'we .under
stand is ' strongly considering the
idea.' Nothing has been heard from
Commissioner Albert Hall.
" Reports ' from Warsaw say Lot
Kornegay, farmer, may oppose AP.
Cates, present chairman, ; -who is
expected to run again. Leon Brown
from Lyman is expected to run
.again to succeed himself. No op
position has been heard from Com
missioner Emmett Kelly's beiliwlck.
In the Board of Education race,
Chairman Dallas Herring is expect
ed to run again and so far no signs
of opposition have been seen devel
oping. - "
. Legislator Robert Carr-says .he
definitely will run to succeed him
self. It is being rumored -that , Mit-
i chftllJBritt of. Warsaw, may eppose
' him again this year but Mr. Britt
' afew weeks baclt that he
Vfir' fUntk tty sure he would, not run.
X from Wallace indicate that
" . ;&uv Wallace merchant? may
, be 'entertaing the idea; again.
stn the Senate race it sounds pretty
I ' sura that Lewis Outlaw of Outlaw's
i ' Bridge is In the race to stay. There
'w is some speculation as - to . what
7 Senator Rivers Johnson will do. On
f the night of the election four years
? ago Mr. Johnson told a court room
; nearly full of peopie that he ap-
. predated the honor then and would
never ask again to be elected to
the' Senate from Duplin. -Rumors
: have it that his son, Rivers, Jr. may
likely be a candidate. At the pre-
sent writing this seems to sum up
the political picture in Duplin as
time draws near- for formal an
nouncements to be coming in. .,
