Bradford Says NES Managers tent' By BILL PRESTON JR. Metro Electric Power Bdard Chairman J. C. Bradford defended Nashville Electric Service management as "honest and competent" last night in testimony before the Metro Council's NES investigating commit-. tee. ' r j j , l 'ITxk glad to say I think they are honest and competent," Bradford said in response to a question by Councilman Joe Crockett. , THE CHAIRMAN described the NES management and the members of the power board which oversee the utility as competent businessmen who have built a fiscally sound operation. 'And while Bradford said he; does not believe there should be any changes in NES management, he did concede there has been a lack of attention to "public relations" which has been pointed up clearly during the two-month public outcry oyer NES rates and billing procedures. "I think it is obvious that the power board has now become a political operation and must pay attention to public relations," Bradford said. "The NES management is honest and competent, but they are not good public relations people." BRADFORD SAID the power board, on which he has served 35 years, began as a business operation" composed of business people. But he said he believes greater political influence is proper because NES has become "a major influence in the lives of people." But he did warn against people being appointed to the . board as representatives of segments of the public without business experience and "the ability to read and understand a balance sheet." Bradford was questioned repeatedly about whether NES and the power board had been responsive to the public by following a policy of putting profits into plant expansion instead of increasing borrowing for that purpose and applying profits to a reduction of rates. BRADFORD maintained that the policy was necessary" to maintain the utility's credit and to insure having sufficient money to make payments to Metro government in lieu of taxes while still operating "in the black." that policy, he said, is largely responsible for NES being able to make two recent rate reductions because it allows for a "break-even" operation at least through the end of the current fiscal year in June. Following last night's meeting, the committee voted to adjourn until its staff can complete a second-stage report of its investigation into NES and report back probably Monday. Chairman Kenneth Miller said that if the report is finished by Monday, the committee will likely meet again Wednesday.

Hardison Plans To Leave U.S. Soon: Report Nashville's volatile W. T. Hardison IV was reported last night to be planning to leave the United States within the next 24 hours. Source of the report was Chris Clark, news director of WLAC-TV, who said he had talked with Hardison about 20 minutes before his newscast. HARDISON HIMSELF could not be reached for confirmation of the report. Clark noted that such a move apparently would be a violation of terms of Hardis-on's parole from the Tennessee state prison, where he served more than three years on a stock forgery conviction. The newsman quoted Hardison also as saying that he had recently been to Santo Domingo, and Clark said he asked Hardison if he had gone there to recover $1 million he was convicted of swindling from local banks, which is still missing. He said Hardison replied: "I DIDN'T GO there to lie on the beach." Not quite two months ago there was speculation that Hardison might jump bail and leave the country while he was in New York for an appearance on the NBC-TV Tomorrow Show. He had gone to New York with the permission of Sheriff Fate Thomas. Before leaving for New York, Hardison said that if some foreign nation offered him asylum and a job, he probably would go. HARDISON HAS been working at Muhlenbrink's Saloon here since his release from the Davidson County workhouse. Hardison has refused to Put are more dramatic: one Georgia town voted not to pay the municipal electric bills and some citizens of a Texas community are protesting with a blackout. In the Marion protest, an estimated 300 customers' of Indiana & Michigan Electric, Co. gathered in a junior high school gymnasium Monday night at a public hearing, waving their electric bills, applauding their speakers and shouting down anyone defending the utility com- pany. ,The hearing was called by minority Democrats of the Indiana Senate, IN LITTLE Elm, Tex., some 125 residents have agreed to observe a 24-hour power blackout this weekend to protest high utility bills. Jack Blalock, chairman of the blackout committee, ' said he will shut off all the power at the office of the , weekly newspaper he publishes from 3 p.m. tomorrow Ai Wlnahoro tell the local banks where the $1 million is, and was placed under an appearance bond in Chancery Court here for his refusal. Clark did not identify any nation to which Hardison might be planning to travel, but while he was in New York he said that he had been offered "political asylum" by the government of Cuba and planned to discuss terms with representatives of a Cuban trade mission.

Gold Sale Stirs Small Attention NEW YORK (UPI) - In the two months sale of sales have been legal, sales of bullion have failed to attract much more than passing interest. But the sale of cold coins is booming. There's been a revival of the pre-Depression practice of grandparents giving gold coins to grandchildren. A NEW YORK bullion and coin dealer said gold sales in February were "several million dollars, primarily in gold coins." Republic National Bank of New York, the most active bank in the gold business, said it has sold $2 million in gold coins and only $700,000 in bullion since the 41-year ban on gold was lifted Dec. 31. Alex Hakim, Republic vice president, said coins have more appeal because coins are more marketable than hnllinn Trw Smith African Krugerrand is the single most popular coin, gold ji : j uccucia 5uu. uwinew. rent market price is $190 per coin, about $8 more than an ounce of gold on bullion markets Monday. Hakim said the Krugerrand is popular because "it is one troy ounce of fine gold. Its price is easy to determine. It also is official government mint and negoti in Maryland is the Organization for Consumer Justice, which is active in the western part of the state served by the Potomac Edison Co. More than 2,000 persons turned out at each of a series of hearings to protest electric rates.

Government minted coins are less vulnerable to coun terfeiting and would not normally needed to be assayed before sale. John Flynn, vice president or ferera Fifth Avenue, said sales of gold were slow in January after the ban was ' lifted but have picked up 30-35 per cent in February. STILL, HE said, "There is very little demand for gold ingots over our counter. There aren't many people actually coming in and buying large amounts of gold and carting it away." Flynn also said the increase is sales has largely been the result of coin demand. "People feel the dollar is going down further against other currencies and against gold. As a result, they are buying the coins," Flynn said. A LOUISVILLE man recently bought $230,000 in gold from Republic National Bank telling the bank in a letter he wanted gold not for speculative trading but rather for "long term se-cuirty." Also doing a brisk business are the commemorative coin mints. The Franklin Mint, Franklin Center, Pa., claims to have struck the first gold coin the Panama Balboa 100--after the ban was lifted.

Several consumer groups have been organized to fight a proposal by the Virginia Electric & Power Co. that would raise residential electric rates by an average of 6 per cent and would enable the company to automatically pass through any increases in nuclear fuel costs. The company already passes through increases in conventional fuels. THE TfNNESSEAN, Country Star Newman Gets Special Day MURFREESBORO -Country music star Jimmy C.
