Democratic nomination to the Senate
seat held by the late John McClellan for
35 years ina primary runoff that all but
assured him his election.
AND IN SOUTH Carolina, Charles
"Pug" Ravenel, a 40-year-old invest-
ment executive, won the right to face
Senate stalwart Strom Thurmond in
November.
Pryor, a two-term governor,
withstood charges of scandal
within his campaign or-
ganization to defeat U.S. Rep.
Jim Guy Tucker, by a margin of 55
percent to 45 percent.
Pryor, 43, will face Tom Kelly, a
political amateur who ran unopposed in
the Republican primary.
DURING TH E runoff, Pryor, the first
governor to appoint a black and a
woman to the Arkansas Supreme Court,
reverted to the campaign rhetoric used
against him by McClellan when he
sought unsuccessfully to unseat the
powerful Democrat in 1972.
He attacked Tucker, a 35-year-old
lawyer, as a friend of unions and
liberals. Pryor himself had received
$100.00 from unions in 1972.
Late in the campaign, the chairman
of the state utility regulating com-
mission charged that Pryor's campaign
manager tried to get favorable treat-
ment for a utility owned by an uncle of
Rep. Ray Thornton, who finished third
in the May 3 primary. Tucker said it
was an attempt by Pryor to swing votes
from conservative constituents of

Thornton. A prosecutor's investigation
cleared Pryor, and the governor ac-
cused Tucker of instigating the scandal.
IN SOUTH CAROLINA, Thurmond, a
74-year-old Republian, formerly a
Democrat, had no opposition in the
primary for the seat he has occupied
since 1954. Ravenel captured more than
50 percent of the vote, easily outdistan-
cing his closest challenger, John Bolt
Culbertson, a Greenville lawyer and
perennial candidate.
Ravenel was already known by the
voers, having won the Democratic
gubernatorial nomination in 1974 in his
first campaign for public office. He was
taken off the ballot when the state
Supreme Court ruled he did not meet
residency requirements.
In South Carolina's Democratic
gubernatorial primary, Lt. Gov. W.
Brantley Harvey was forced into a June
27 runoff with former state Sen.
Richard Riley. On the GOP side, U.S.
Rep. Edward Young narrowly defeated
former Columbia businessman
Raymon Finch.
The current governor, James Ed-
wards, the first Republican to occupy
the office in a century, was unable by
law to succeed himself.
In other primaries, Maine's atorney
general, Joseph E. Brennan, won the
Democratic gubernatorial nomination
over state Sen. Philip Merrill and state
Rep. Richard Caray. The Republicans
chose Linwood Palmer, minority leader
of the state House, over Charles Cragin,
and state Sen. Jerrold Speers.

legislature
legalizes liquor
by the glass
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)-If you're of
the persuasion to imbibe, raise a glass
and toast the North Carolina General
Assembly. Yesterday the lawmakers
made it legal to buy a mixed drink in
their state.
The state Senate voted over-
whelmingly to go along with House
amendments to a bill that would allow
local governments to permit sales of
liquor by the drink.
THE VOTE LEAVES Oklahoma
alone among the 50 states in banning
the sale of all forms of liquor by the
glass. Several other states, however,
have local option laws.
The new law would replace the prac-
tice of "brown-bagging" in which
customers continue brown bagging or
seek a mixed drink license.
But they won't be bellying up to the
bar in North Carolina immediately.
The measure just allows counties and
cities that now permit sales of liquor by
the bottle to hold referendums on
whether to allow mixed drink sales in
certain restaurants and clubs.
Gov. Jim Hunt, a teetotaler, opposed
the bill but does not have the power to
veto the legislation.
