FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1951 Arkansas Aluminum Capacity To Be Expanded 55,000 Tons \VASHINGTON, Oct. 12. (AP)-The Reynolds Metals Co., will expand its aluminum production capacity by 55,000 tons in Arkansas, the state's senators have announcedT H joint statement, Senators Fulbright and McClellan said last night that the firm will either expand the plant it now operates at Jones Mill, Ark., or build « new one. BLTTUEVILLE (ARK,) COUHIER NEWg i Later last night in Little Rock, Senator AJcClellan said it was his opinion that (he company would build a new plant. He added that Helena is "pretty much favored" as a site.) Officials of industry and government hailed the development ns at least a temporary truce between public and private electrical power forces, pointing out that both cooperated in obtaining the huge facility for Arkansas. It may bring about the largest single power contract ever negotiated anywhere in Arkansas. The expansion will cost an esti- matoil $15 million. Reynolds was granted a letter of intent by the General Services Administration for construction of additional facilities for 60.000 tons of aluminum, of which all but 5.000 tons will go lo Arkansas. GSA Offers Guarantee The letter carries a procurement contract under which the government will take the added production. Reynolds Is to finance the expansion through private capital with GSA offering a guarantee of such Joans as might be required. The letter of intent also includes a provision for construction of-an additional 1,000. tons daily capacity for the production of alumina — the powder which is melted into aluminum metal by means of electric power. Fulbnght said it isn't certain whether the alumina involved would come from Arkansas bauxite or Irom bauxite shipped in from (he Caribbean area. • The new facilities will start producing in about 18 months. Fillbright added. Power Was Key Key lo getting the. additional facility for Arkansas was the availability of power. The supply will come frcm ft combination private- public power pool—a result of an agreement between C. Hamilton Moses, president of the Arkansas Power and Light Co., and Douglas Wright, administrator of the Federal Southwestern Power Administration. It was this agreement between opponents of several years lhat brought cheers from all involved. i Snid J. Louis Reynolds, vice pres- "> ident of the metals comp'any: "The two groups (AP & L, and SPA) have Rotten together. The outlook now is very favorable. They, made some very fine progress and we arc gratified." "We'll nt All Available" Wright said lhat "we are going to dn anything necessary with everything we have available to provide this power." And Moses added: "There is complete co-operation on this project between SPA and our company. There is no other place in the United Stales for the aluminum industry to get this power. "We told Ihe senators and Reynolds Metals people that by full co-ordination of our facilities and those of the SPA Ihe enormous block of 150.000 kilowatts of power could be furnished. We are committed to have the power ready for the new operation." The full 130,000 capacity of Bull Shoals Dam is to be available by December. 1952. Ttie AP & L's new 100,000 kilowatt steam plant at Lake Catherine is expected to be ready by December, 1052. AP & L also has plans for a 135.000 kilowatt plant in 1953 and another 135,000- kilowatt plant in 19.5-). Another is said to be a tacit understanding that the output of Bull Shoals will be dedicated to Reynolds' needs. However, details of the contract between AP & L and SPA have not been worked out. The 60,000 tons of production al- located to Reynolds Is trie unallocated portion of a big expansion program started by the government after the war in Korea began. Most of the rest of it already has gone to Reynolds, Alcoa and to Kaiser industries. This 60.000 tons had been sought by Spartan Aircraft Co., Tlllsa, Okla., lor an integrated plant It proposed to build near Little Rock. Governor McMath of Arkansas saw President Truman Wednesday on behalf of Spartan, urging that some production be allocated to an independent. However. Piilbrighl said that it appeared that another expansion program Is in the offing to meet domestic and defense needs and that lie sera no reason why Spartan can't seek part of this production. "I'll be glad to help them with it," he said. 'Seven Wonders of Arkansas' Film Nearly Completed, Company Says RUSSELLVILLE. Ark..
