It will be recalled that in the months before final selection of the aluminum plant site it was proposed to furnish some of tho plant's enormous electric requirements by constructing an REA generating station to utilize the "sour-gas" of the La- Fayettc and Columbia fields. ' Hope probably never had much of a look-in on the matter of the aluminum plant site, but it has a very material stake in seeing the "sour- gas" just south of us turned into electric power. Coal and hydro-power each in their day have built up industry in new sections—and this "sour-gas" field, now lying dormant because its sulphuric-acid content must be removed before it becomes a commercial fuel, represents the potential power source to industrialize southwest Arkansas. The aluminum plant location has been decided upon, but we should insist that the "sour-gas" development be carried out regardless. If the figures given this newspaper confidentially some time ago are correct—and they came from an authoritative source—then the "sour-gas" fields are potentially able to produce electricity cheaper than any other known fuel or method. The accuracy of the figures given i-ndV -seems to- be-,borne out;-by^rT Harris' charge that it was thV private power companies which intervened to change the aluminum plant site, Camden may think that the power companies preferred the northern location over Camden—but the probable fact is that the power companies cared little about the actual location but feared the threat of cheap elecricily from the "sour-gas" generating station to their existing facilities and investments. * * * By WILLIS THORNTON Yes, We Are One Country, One Nation An American citizen is free to go from one state to another, seeking to better himself, "Of course," you say. But that right has only now been clarified and broadened by the unanimous decision of the United States Supreme Court. In ruling unconstitutional the California "anti-Okie" law, the court has by implication ruled invalid similar laws in 27 other states, all aimed at preventing entrance into those states of people without property. Specifically, Fred F. Edwards took his jobless brother-in-law from Texas into California, where, after living with Edwards for 10 days, the brother-in-law received assistance from the Farm Security Administration. That made Edwards a violator of the California law against helping indigents to enter California; he was convicted, and he appealed. Such a law violates the Constitution, the court now unanimously holds. But the court was not unanimous on the reasons. Justice Byrnes, delivering the opinion (his first) decided that such a law exceeded the proper "police power" of the state, and further, that it was an unconstitutional barrier to interstate commerce. Thus the court's majority hitched still another trailer to that venerable wagon, the commerce cluase, with its provision that "Congress shall have power to regulate commerce with foreign nations and among the several states and with the Indian tribes," Justice Douglas, speaking also for Justices Black and Murphy, traversed loftier ground to the same con(Continued on Page Three) Mr. Rover, a sensible hound, Christmas shopped, with his wallet unwound, Bought his family, new tags Which were welcomed with wags-*-* , They won't spend Christmas Day in the pound", 'itSHOPPING DAYS Germans Admit Withdrawal From Rostov Sniping Civilians Believed to Be Taking Heavy Nazi Toll BERHN~(/P)-Thc Germans acknowledged Saturday that their forces had been partly withdrawn from Ros- tov-on-Don, north gateway to the Caucasus which their troops won a week ago. While the Germans battled agains new Russian counter attack in theis sector, DNB, official Gorman news agency, reported that on the central front the cotton manufacturing town of Volokolamsk, 65 miles northwest of Moscow had been captured in a steady Nazi squeeze on the Russian capital. Rostov, Germans had described as one of the most strategic prizes of the war. The high command disclosed the move by saying "occupation troops of Rostov in compliance with order are exavuating the central district of the city in order to make the most through preparations for necessary measures against the population which, contrary to international warfare, participated in fighting at the rear of the German troops." The impression was given that sniping by civilians developed back of the ines against which Russian forces were hurled recklessly. Observers said this was the second Lime the Germans had admitted withdrawal at Norvark but later retook the city. . To Speed Up Activities of Past Six Months Are Reviewed With construction of the Southwestern Proving Ground past the half way nark and all employes cooperating n the new drive to make the job eighty per cent complete over all by January 3rd, work is moving at a fast clip on the job of readying for use another ordnance facility. All facilities such as vehicle roads, drainage work, laying of sewer and water line and other tasks of this kind s virtually complete and the more :han 6,000 employes of the Contractor, 250 of the Architect Engineer and something over 300 Constructing Quartermaster personnel are taking full advantage of generally favorable weather to keep the project moving ahead of the schedule. On more than 100 permanent facilities representatives of practically every building trade are at work lay- ng brick, pouring concrete foundations, erecting steel, nailing up siding and the htundred and one 6ther tasks iccessary to provide the units needed jy an expanding ordnance program. Major Werner C. Strecker, Con- itructing Quartermaster, in looking sack over a period of favorable accomplishments, said "Work is proceeding satisfactorily and has been marked by efficiency and smooth operation to date." Two water wells, 1150 feet in depth have been provided to insure a sufficient supply of water. The water si pumped from these wells by two electric pumps, which are designed to furnish a minimum of 200 gallons per minute each, A ten inch casing leads to the storage tank from which the water will be delivered to the mains. This storage tank, capable of maintaining a sufficient supply of water for the entire project to to be placed on a steel tower reaching more than 100 feet from ground level to the balcony of the tank. By elevating the storage tank to this height, adequate pressure at all points on the project is assured. It is expected that this system will be sufficient to supply the needs of the project under all conditions and circumstances but in the event that it Fallen France Faces Another Fateful Turning o (Continued on page three) Cranium Crackers Gridiron Nicknames After a whirlwind gridiron season, you should be fairly well familiar with the nicknames of collegiate football teams across the country, See if you can charge through this line of teams and come up with the proper university for each. 1.
