PAGE TEN BLYTHEVIU.E (ARK.) COURIER. NEWS M'Math Scorches Tackett Charges On Power Issue LITTLE ROCK, Sept. 26. (AP)—The dispute over Arkansas' power supply has flared anew, with Governor McMath issuing a scorching reply to charges that his public statements caused new industries to by-pass the state. McMath yesterday sent a strong* ly-worded tclegrapi to Rep. Boyd Tackett iD-Ark> In answer to accusations made by Tackett Monday night. Tackett charged that Me- Math's frequent statements that Arkansas suffers from a shortage of electrical power had causPrt prospective industries to locate elsewhere. The congressman's statements followed a request from the governor to the state's congressional delegation to help Arkansas obtain defense industries, particularly aluminum plants which may he moved Jrom the Pacific northwest because of a west coast power shortage. Declaring that Tacketl's statement (was) dictated by the utility lobby in Washington," the governor said: Tower Facilities Are Great "We would now have on hand greater power generating facilities and our power potential would be more ncArly approached had it not been for the near-sighted, selfish and dog-in-the-mangcr attitude of the utility interests for whom you speak and whose interests you apparently represent." "I stated, 11 sahl McMath's telegram, "that Arkansas has the power potential to supply the aluminum processing plants which the nation now needs so desperately and arc situated on the west coast. For your information, there is quite a difference between power potential and power In being. Potential Is "GroaU-st" "Because o( our water, ^as and coal resources, Arkansas has the greatest power potential of almost any state In the union. I have encouraged the development of private rind public projects in Arkansas BO that, together, they could supply ever Increasing demands for electricity. "The construction of government dams in Arkansas and in (he nation have, (sic) been consistently opposed by the utility lobbies. In many instances the projects have been defeated, in all Instances construction of power projects hnve been delayed because of this opposition. 'The current case Is the fight being marie by thp utilities against the construction qf the steam generating plant at Ozark. This plant is to provide more electric power at cheaper rates to (he farmers of Arkansas. You recall this case he- cause you appeared before the public .service commission on the side of the utilities." 20 Persons Die In Train Crash VIENNA. Sept. 20.
