ABSTRACT
This article presents news briefs on different topics. First news is about an amateur, Frederick G. Payne who is chosen as a Republican Party nominee for the Senate. In another development has been about a midsummer carnival in which the legislative arm of the U.S. government last week was indulged. Another news is about the victory of a liberal over a liberal in Columbia. W. Averell Harriman's victory over Estes Kefauver in the district of Columbia Democratic preferential primary was overwhelmingly due to a fighting appeal to the District African Americans, many of whom called him "another Lincoln," but his welfare program for government workers also brought him heavy votes from the white neighborhoods.
