Chancellor Williams, auggestlng a research program, said that the universities and colleges should be tied in with such a plan since they have trained personnel for such projects. He said that other states have organized research centers to advantage in handing out information required by industrialists while contemplated new locations for plants. Pres. Hilbun stressed the need for skilled workers and technical know-how in industry and reminded that "cheap labor" is not the pre-requisite for new Industry. He stressed public backing of industrial development as a great factor and said that while Mississippi has heretofore been predominantly an agricultural state, industry and agriculture can go hand in hand. Both college heads called for dispersal of Industry as a means of giving more stabilization to semi-rural areas rather than continued loss of people on the farms to the municipalities.

MY FL a The interruption of electric service in the Mississippi Power & Light Company area was due to a mechanical failure in one of the larger generating stations in a neighboring state interconnected with the MP&L system. This dumped an instantaneous and unexpected load on the MP&L system and on the generating plants at Natchez, Cleveland and Jackson. These plants were not running at full capacity at the time and the sudden load tripped the generators out. Safety precautions required some time before they could be put back in service. As soon as MP&L was able to get its generating plants back in operation it was able to restore normal service. These plants have ample capacity to meet the needs of all of MP&L customers. We are sorry that we could not give everyone full details at the time of the interruption but it always takes considerable time to determine the exact extent and duration of such occurrences. We regret this inconvenience and pledge our continued efforts to render the best possible service to all our customers.
