terest of Georgia 'voters Wio W-ill go b
to the polls on September 13 to nomi- it
nate candidates for governor, con

Of great interest is the race between n
Governor Thomas !W. Illardwick, who A
Is seeking re-nomi'ukion, and.C4iWord t,
W. Walker, who'whs defeated in the ti
primary two years ago. 'Mr. Hard
wick, who was on the ticket with Uni- m
ted States Oenator Thomas E. Watson
in 1920, has been accused by the sena- u
tor,.of hdving "broken faith" with his g
constituonts, while Mr. Walker has t;
the stupNort of Mr. Watson, who op- 11
)osed liml in the last race. Spokes- 1,
men for Senator Watson have charged g
that the'governor has entered into an t<
alignment of forces with former Seha-. t
tor Hoke (Smith, who was defeated by 1
fMr. Veitson in 1920, with the view of r
capturing for themselves tile seats in v
the United States senate now held by Ip
Senator William J. flarris and Mr. N
Watson. Air. Harris' term will expire
in 1925 and Mr. '\Vatson's in 1927. t
Governor iHardwick has denied hav- I
lng "broken faith" with anyone, add
" have never -broken a promise 1
.to Sinator Watson, thave never made
a promise to Senator Watson andti
lhave never been asked to maxe a I
promise to Senator Watson."
The Ku Klux Klan issue was thrust
\into the campaign -by the governor
1 when he demanded that they go un- T
masked except in lodge rooms, and
iwhen in several lof his campaign I
speeches he declared:
"I am opnosed to invisible govern
nent, either from the city of Washing- ,
ton or the imperial palace of the Ku i
Klux Klan, or from anywhere else."
-ie has declared that the country still I
is in the midst of a "i)eriod of 'unrest, s
eof crime waves and it is unfortunate V
that another Ku Kulx Klan sh'ould be
organized at this time." E
Mr. Walker has refrained from dis
cussing the klan rissue and has con- I
lined his s)eeches l)ricipally to dis
cussion of tax questions.
Six of the twelve congressmen seek
ing renomination have encounteredli
opposition, the race of Mayor James
L. Key, of Atlanta, and Ralph 0.
Cochran, seeking the seat now held
b by Rpresentative William D. Upshaw,
who .s after the renomination from
the fifth district, attracting most at
tention. In the ilrst district, Repre
sentative J. W. kOverstreet is Opposed
by It. L. Moore, of Statesboro, and
Judge J. j. Flynt, former president
of the state senate and former chair
man of the state (lemocratic executive
committee, is running against Repre
sentative K. W. Wise, fron the sixth
district. Representatiive Charles 11.
aBrand, of the eighth district, and Rep
resentative Thomas Il. Bell, of the
