MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 14, 1981 Arkansas Beats Drums ToObtain New Industry For Aluminum Projects LITTLE ROCK, Sept. 24. (AP)_Ark.n M lTt,. ".* known state with vast deposit* of the basic aluminum—bauxite—again is beating the drumi age metal industries to open shop in this state /The temno hit » fast din fi»inr.^_l 15 state - COURIER NEWS * ^The Umpo hit a fast clip Satur•«•? when Defense Moblllzer Charles • X. Wilson suggested that some Pacific northwest aluminum plants might have to be moved because of power shortages. This led Governor McMath and the Arkansas Public Service Commission to again ask that Arkansas be considered as a sit* for more aluminum plants. The governor, who was contacted at Omaha, Neb., where he was speaking, sent a telegram to the Arkansas congressional delegation asking members to "use every effort" to assist Ihe state in obtaining new Industries. Arkansas Needs Industry ."Arkansas needs this new Industry and Arkansas has the greatest potentially low-cost power of any slate In the union." his telegram stated, "We are sorely behind in obtaining any defense Industries and this is our opportunity to obtoin a share In defense production. Power can be supplied immediately adjacent to the only available source of raw alumina and bauxite In the country." The public service commissioners joined togelher in messaging the defense mobilized Their telegram said In part: ^'Arkansas can produce power In Jklimlted quantities at one of the Bwest rates in the United states, The coal resoles of Arkansas guaranteed an unlimited supply of fuel at Jp»' costs. "Sworn documents within the 90 days on record with this commission state there will be 1,520,000 kilowatts of hydrocapacity in the southwestern area by 1953. Priorities could expedite production schedules and also Increase production capacity." Previously C. Hamilton Moses president of the Arkansas Power i; Light Co., said his company and other privately-owned utilities could supply sufficient amount of power for any industry. Two weeks ago, the governor ordered the PSC to survey Arkansas' power facilities and capabilities to determine If the state has an adequate electric potential to supply demands of new industries.
