Still HITC Selling Job "Although we still have a selling job to do for Arkansas," Gov. McMath said, "the advancement of this state is being recognized by the entire United States." In Blytheville, Hie governor continued, the acquisition of natural gas will help to secure Industry and thus aid in achieving and strengthening the balance of economy In Mississippi County. Gov. McMath also staled that every town In Eastern Arkansas that, wants gas will have an opportunity to get it. He added that he was not concerned with which company brought the gas here. On the Mississippi County road situation, Gov. McMath pointed out that construction was proceeding on the Big Lake bridge on Highway 18; that, a contract was ready to be let on widening Highway 18; and that the contract for blacklopping the road from Armorel to Huffman was almost ready. McMnth emphasized that the states must concert their efforts to bait the increasing trend to fedcr- alization by assuming more responsibility and upholding st-ntes rights. Building Medical Units For example, the governor said, Arkansas is now building 33 new hospital units to provide Its citizens with an acceptable health program. Also, a huge medical center now is being planned as a focal point for the state medical program. This center would enable Arkansas to expand its training program thus providing more needed doctors and nurses. "If enough states assume this responsibility." Gov. McMath suggested, "the increasing demand for a socialized health program would fall by the wayside. "This would aid the economy of the nation," the governor explained, "as It would help free the federal government from rmich of its responsibility and thus release more money for the problems of stemming communism, national defense, and waping the cold war." Oov. McMath was introduced oy Jack Finley Robinson at the Blytheville mccling. In Dell, he was introduced by the Rev. E. H. Hall, who presided over the meeting there. Mayor D. D.
