Kl'C Sets Hales These rales, Mr. Hill said, are .set by the Federal Power Commission. In Lilllc Rock this week, plans for forming a~$12,000,OM lo $14,000,000 company to distribute natural gas to about 50 East Arkansas towns were announced by three bond companies and C. Hamilton Moses, president of Arkansas Power and Light Co. To be formed from AP and L gas properties lo be sold at a cost of from $2,000,000,000 to $3.000,000, ths proposed company plans to pipe jas from Hie Texas Gas Transmission Co. line in North Mississippi across lhe river to Helena and then north lo Hlylhcville via the new AP and L generating plant al Palestine, In si. Francis County. Council lo Meet Mnnrhiy In n prono.=nl made lo the City Council here, a bond company representative cited plans to bring gas to Mississippi County Irorn lhe Mississippi River Fuel Company pipeline west of Pnragould. The Blyiheville City Council will meet at 7:30 Monday night In City Hall to hear additional details of lhe proposed company's plans in regard to organizing, financing and rates. A delay of three weeks was granted the bond companies involved to prepare this data. Tlie other source, of supply Involved In the Ark-Mo proposal Is the Texas-Eastern Gas Transmission Company's "Big Inch" pipeline, which will feed the utility's new generating plant 'between St. Francis. Ark., and Campbell, Mo. One Line Shorter The line from the company's new plant, Mr. Hill said, would be about one-third shorter than a line from the Mississippi River Fuel Company pipeline. However, according lo the most recent wholesale rate schedule, the Mississippi River Fuel Co. gas at the source would be cheaper than gas obtained from Texus-Bastcrn. Mr. Hill said preliminary surveys indicate that when the length nf transmission line required to bring gas here Is considered. AOc-Mo probably can distribute the Texas- Eastern gas at a lower rate than either it or the proposed company Senate Okays Foreign Aid Bill; Cut Is Made WASHINGTON, May g. (AP)-The ndmluislration's big foreign aid authorization was safely through Hie senate today, shorn of a quarter of a billion dollars but otherwise fairly Intact. prospects, however - , that the S3,122,.!50,000 figure approved by a whopping CO to a vote last night will subjected to a determined economy drive when voting starts on a later bill providing the cash. President Truman's $45,000.000 ,. "Point Four" program of aid to the underdeveloped areas of the world squeaked by on a margin of one vote— 37 to 36. And only a 40 to 40 tie—which in the Scnntc is n losing vole— prevented a $500.000.000 cut In the European Recovery Program, instead of tlie 5250.000,000 slash eventually approved. Several Suffer Cuts The administration's $3,100000000 request for a third year of the Marshall Plan was the only one of several programs in the bill to suffer a cut. These tight votes—plus a bitter economy speech by Senator McKellar m-Tctm), chairman of the powerful appropriations committee — heralded trouble when Congress Bets around to supplying lhe money for tile aid programs. Tile measure that emerged from the Sciuitn In nn cxtrn-liours session merely authorizes the programs and fixes a top limit to be spent on them during lhe 1951 tis- cal year that begins July 1. The actual money must, be. provided separately in an appropriations Ml). House Volcd Less Tile House previously had voted 520,000,000 less for foreign aid. with the extra cut made in ibe Point Four program. That and other minor differences will have to be ironed out by a Senate-House conference committee. While ar.y senator who voted with the iiclininislrnUon could claim partial credit for the narrow victories In ihe Point Pour and Marshall flan tests, the distinction was awarded by common consent to Senator Taylor (D-Tdaho). Taylor Was Critic Taylor, who was vice presidential candidate on Henry Wallace's Progressive Party ticket In 1048, had been one of the Senate's most vigorous critics of the Marshall Plan anil other aid programs. He had argued in the past lhat such projects should be administered by the United Nations. Yesterday he unexpectedly reversed his field, saying he is convinced (ho United States must try "to halt the spread of Communism." He Ihen voted with the administration on every test.
