TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1951 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Tackett Pouring Fresh Fuel \ On Power Feud with AAcAAath By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hep. Tackett (D-Ark) poured fresh fuel on his smouldering feud with Governor McMath over electric jiow- ^r and how its distributed in Ar- •^kiiEas. Tackett Monday night charged that McMath's frequent statements thnl Arkansas has a shortage of power hns caused prospective new industries to by pass the state for other locations. His remarks were in answer to McMath's request that members of the Arkansas congressional delegation help divert new defense con tracts and industries to the state. The governor's request followed an announcement over the weekend that some aluminum plants in the Pacific Northwest may have to relocate because of a power shortage. fn his telegram, the governor said Arkansas has the greatest potential low cost pow,er of any state. This is the remark that drew fire from Tackett, who is considered a likely candidate to oppose McMath for governor next year. Tackett, a former University of Arkansas classmate with McMath. said at Washington that the governor's statement was a reversal of his previous position. Conflict PoEntrrf Out Tackett said that when McMath recently was supporting Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation's application to build a $10.5 million \ steam generating plant at' Ozark the governor contended that the state did not have enough power. rtlksNow, he added, the governor has ^P/s covered the state has enough power. McMath and others, he said, "have been running all around .Arkansas • ~ and the entire country insisting that Arkansas has an inadequate supply of electric power." "If R hadn't been for "this campaign against the interest of our state," said Tackett, "Arkansas may very well have had the aluminum plants and other industries " Tackett said he. referred to remarks on shortage of power Arkansas made recently by Presidential Assistant John Steelman, a native Arkansan; Clyde Ellis, managing director of the National Ar- tociation of Rural Electric Co-Operatives, and former U. S. representative, end Tom Fitzhugh, Little Hock Attorney for REA cooperatives. Campalfrn "Contributed" Tackett added that the "McMath- 6teelman-Ellis-Fitfchugh campaign no doubt contributed to the location of the atomic energy plant in South Carolina, the location of the Alcoa reduction plant in Texas anc another in the Pacific northwest. 1 Governor McMath could not be reached for comment Monday. Tackett's statement came as 50 civic and industrial lenders met a ^ihe governor's -reception room' b Pfhoiilder their part of the load in •securing new Industries for the state as requested by McMath.
