Contract Bad Deal, Avows Ex-AP&L Man •tIMEMPHIS UP) A former Arkan sas Power & Light Co. executive has sharply criticized the contro versal Dixon-Yates contract as a deal in which "the public can't win and Dixon Yates can't lose." W. H. Howze pronounced "Howze" of West Memphis, Ark., retired af ter 30 years with AP&L, told the Commercial Appeal the contract is good for the stockholders but darn bad for the public." said he felt obliged tc peak out, although he is a stock holder in AP&L, owned by Middle South Utilities, Inc., which forms half of the Dilxon-Yates combine. The private power combine has a contract to build a 107 million dollar generating plant at West Memphis to pipe powei into the Tennessee Valley Authority's pub lie power system. The Atomic Energy Commission gtfJUld buy the 600.000 kilowatt out ptit to replace TVA power being absorbed by atomic plants in the TVA area. Howze, a lormer AP&L, district manager who built and manager a number of the company's East Ar kansas properties, urged that Mem phis build its own huge generating plant. The city could erect a 600,000 kilowatt plant at nearby Ful ton, Tenn., "for around 90 million cbllars," he s;a:d. Vie directed much of nis criticism at the Mississippi riverbank loca tion of the proposed plant. 'There is no foundation at the \Vesl Memphis site and this cost is going to be great," he said. "Anyone who knows anything •about the land over their knows it's all gumbo. We dug for tower foundations 128 feet down once and never struck anything solid." The Mississippi often shifts its fesd, Howze said, and suppose the 'Jrrant were washed away and it took three years to get it back in shape? "Under terms of their contract," Madness in the Spring iy Elnot* Denniston Copyright 1954 by Ellh&re Dihnlston Distributed by NEA Service XXXIV Rupert eased the car past the pitched teepees and into Dead Man's Gulch. He stopped, savoring Greg's expression. The place was no longer a ghost town. It was alive; it was real. Along the road clattered cowboys on horseback, men and women swarmed the boardwalks. "Where did you get the extras?" Greg asked at last, his eyes on some synthetic cowboys. Judging by the way they bounced, riding was a new and painfully acquired art to these sons of the rugged West. "Members of the Chamber of Commerce. They got here before the cooks did and Hannah was feeding the whole outfit before she left" There was a hollow feeling in the pit of Greg's stomach. "Hannah's gone?" Rupert's narrow eyes brushed his face. "Several days ago." Greg left him with a muttered excuse about seeing Daggett. The latter lay in bed with his eyes closed. Thinking he was asleep, Greg was tiptoing out when the old man said. "Have a good trip?" "Fine. How have you been behaving?" Greg's voice was casual but he was alarmed. Weeks had passed since Daggett decided to lake things easy. He should have said Howze "Dixon-Yates wouldn't lose a cent. They'd still be getting thpjr payments from the govern ment whether they were able to supply the power or not." The proposal that Memphis build the extra generation capacity nee essary for TVA's system was ad vanccd some time ago &s a SUD stitute for the Dixon-Yates plan. Backers of TVA call the Dixon Yates contract an atack on TVA's cheap power. Backers of Dixon Yates, including President Eisen hower, say the contract is in the public's best interest. seen a doctor long ago. It was not like Hannah. "Having the time of my life." Daggett's big vibrant voice reassured Greg. "You seem to have slain your giant." Greg grinned. "At least, 1 tamed him." For the first time he realized that, by signing a throe- year contract with his stepfather he had withdrawn frcm his job with Daggett. Like a fool he had rot considered Daggett at all. "I hope," the old man said cheerfully", "Grain kicked through with a decent salary." "Terrific. The queer part is that I never dreamed of getting a job for myself out of this." Daggett interrupted hastily, "You'cl be a god-awful fool if you hadn't jumped at it. Otherwise you'd hav e been out of a job." "Sure you are ready to quit?" Greg asked and then, considering the old man's condition and tho ambiguity of his question, he could have kicked himself. "I've about exhausted the possibilities of this sort of thing. And after the Grand Opening, ttiiything else v/ould be anticlimax. I don't want the trip to taper off." "But" "An adventure in spring at my time of life is something. It's only common sense to know when to let spring go. God be with the clown who ponders this tremendous scene, this whole experiment in green, as if it was his own. I don't have to own it. For 50 years, after this" and he touched his shriveled hand"happened to me, I've been trying to get back to the time and place when I was whole. And you made it possible. Gave me a second spring. But no one can escape indefinitely from his own time and place. In the long run, you have to let the madness go with the spring. It takes four seasons to make a year." "You'll need someone." "When Hannah gets back, we'll Yoshida Lashes Out at Jap Critics , By JIM BECKER TOKYO UP) Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida, in stinging replies to his Diet (Parliament) critics, said today, "It is very necessary for the Japanese to know the real meance of the Communist offensive." And he snapped at opponents seeking tc oust him: "The Liberal party will decide when and wheth er I should step down." The 76-year-old leader fought back at critics who atatcked him for being too "pro-American." "It is necessary to oppose com munism," he said. "If tlint is called 'alignment with America only, I say all the free world is aligned with America only." To questioners in the Diet who urged expansion of trade with the Communists, he declared: "The Communist radios pour sugar-coated words at Japanese ears," he said. "At the same time, the Communist radios beamed to Southeast Asian tell them Japan is being rearmed for renewed aggression under American instigation. It is foolish to buy Communist words at face value." When can I see i the new engine with 198 horsepower? i«AT YOUR MERGURY DEALER'S NOW I Buy New! Economy-Siie!

Citizens Commend Highway Commission LITTLE ROC K UP) The State Highway Commission has been com mended for its fiscal policies by a private citizens group. The report, submitted to the Arkansas Legislative Council yesterday, was from tho fiscal subcom- mille eof the Committee on Ade quate Roads. The CAR is successor to the Citizens Highway Committee of the Committee on Adeon highway matters that passed the 1953 legislature. Members of the subcommittee who approved the report are T.M. Martin, president of Lion Oil Co.; Verne L. Tind^li, Stuttgart rice farmer and businessman, and cam- ernatorial candidate Pratt Rem mel; P. F. Watzak, the head of Crossett Indistries, and W. S. Fox, Pine Bluff lumberman and a mem bcr of the 1952 Highway Audit Commission. The subcommittee report said in part that previous actions and policies of the highway commission 'should justify our laith that the people of the state have received and will continue to receive, a ful dollar's worth of work and materials for each highway dollar invested." Remington Death Brings Jury Probe SCRANTON, Pa. Iff) A federa grand jury was called to session here today to investigate the. slay Ing of William W. Remington, former government economist convicted of perjury in a Communis' espionage case. • Two physicains who tried vainly to save the 37-year-old economist's life at Lewisburg (Pa.) Federa" Penitentiary last week, were slatec to testify on Remington's injuries. They are Dr. Charles Tomlinson, prison physician, and Dr. Leon Witkin of Milton, Pa. talk things over. Unless she marries Philip Kirby, of course. And he's a persistent fellow in a non- he's uring smart tactics, shows he putting pressure on her, he just looks unhappy." »« "Where's Hannah?" Greg was righeously indignant -'H I had dreamed that she would walk out oh you "She is doing an 'errand for me. She'll be back in time lor the Opening." She'll be back for the Grand Opening, Daggett had said. Back tomorrow. But where was she to night? Who was she with ?What was she doing? As he left Daggett Greg found himself smoldering at the thought of Philip Kirby. Kirb knew Hannah all right, appealing to her pity, making her sorry for him. She'd probably end by marrying him. Well, why not? He wa famous, he'd be making a fabu lous salary, he'd be able to give a woman everything rhe wanted. Of course, she'd marry him. Where vt a s Kirby anyhow? You'd think, as a matter of sim pie gratitude, as a common courtesy, he'd be on hand to say thank you to the guy who had landed him a juicy contract. Unless Tie was with Hannah. But Kirby wasn't with Hannah. He emerged from a group of pho tographers and came running toward Greg, his hand out. "Seaver. I didn't know you were back. You really pulled it off Let me buy you a drink to celebrate." As scon as he had finished his drink Greg made his escape. As he went across Ihe road to the Last Chance Hotel the stagecoach i-nd covered wagon were setting off for the station to pick up the first of the crowd. Daggett turnec his head as Greg came in anc smiled. "It was a nice holiday," Da? gett said at last. "It's over lor you now. You've a big job ahead but one that's worth doing. Reminding Americans of their heritage. Now and then, I suppose you'll still find yourself looking for the other side of the moon. But the oxygen is rare, they say." Along the road kerosene lamp were lighted. A horse stamped^ Footsteps died out. Everyone was tired. They had done the best they could. Thjjre was nothing now but to wait for the morning train and the Grand Opening. A voice rose softly, the voice of the Badlands the wind tha.t blew over the prsiries and Wuffs, com ing from, nowhere fyojtn the pther tide 94 the moon.
