Aug. 30. Wj—Ben. H.

Woolen added: 'Hie government cannot run electric plants any more efficiently than can private Industry. You ju-sl cannot talk cost out ol operation." Dedication of the plant, which bears the name of AP&L's president. WAS a feature of the Eastern Arkansas Industrial Expansion Exposition, which sponsors plan to make an annual affair. 'The advent of this exposition and the dedication of the Hamil- ti n Mo.-5e.-i power plan mark the t/cjfinning of closer co-operation between management, capital and research." Wooten said. "We shall co-ordinate capital know-how and raw materials. We shall take hold of scientific research in a more affirmative way, for some day the well of natural resources will run dry and only through research and courageous action can we have a completely balanced economy. "There 1* no curfew on eastern Arkansas' opportunities, unless it be a Jack of desire and willingness to work, plan and finance. This exposition is conclusive proof that the leaders of eastern Arkansas are 101 lacking in this desire." [See related story on Pafe 9.)
