He estimated that pay- rgll at $90,000 a month. "The construction and operation piyroUs, he explained, were in addition to the sharp increase in setuthem Illinois coal production Which would come as a result of the Joppa plant. :!The business men's conference was held at Southern Illinois University here. Business men from the southern part of the state aid surrounding areas were invited to the se jion. ^The Central Illinois Public Service Company is one of five elec- tBc utilities which own the Elective Energy Inc., formed to con- sifruct and operate the Joppa r it which is to power the atom- energy project at Paducali, F^.

(9 ,000 Railroad Cars ^"To ship this coal," he said, 'will require 55,000 railroad cars. '^e handling of this business will rfquire 500 railroad employes at aiK average daily wage of $12.58 t M ^ich is $151,250 per month or ^,815,000 per year." said that permanent em- I at the plant would expand community population of by 630 persons and would niean that school facilities for an aSlditional 270 children must be provided and 160 homes must be aj&ailable for housing the families. ^ame Henneberry I As President of f Life Underwriters :;;Jame8 N.
