Five men in a skiff, including Adlai Stevenson, were the center of attraction as the Democratic hopeful and his friends combined the pleasures of politicking with the delights of duck hunting for two happy days on the 4,000-acre Alice Sidney Farms near Jerome, Ark.

On land, Stevenson (right) and party pose with downed ducks. Others are (left to right) Senator Russell Long of Louisiana Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas, Senator John Sparkman of Alabama and Governor Orval Faubus of Arkansas.

On sea, Stevenson and friends skiff their way across the Woodward Reservoir. With Adlai is Senator Fulbright (left front), Host Dr. J. S. (Big Doc) Rushing, Senator John McClellan of Arkansas and Guide Morris Parkrus (at the tiller).
