SES LIKELM ON LITTLE Tun's Norris' Backing Brings Six Power Developments to 1'ore «V KODNEY inlTOUKU l.'umiiT News Washington tWrrspondejil WASHINGTON, Nov. 15. — T Jio aims or the regional planning program which will be before Confess are so many and diverse that It 'l s difficult to comprehend th e program in one gulp. Under the Norrfc bill in (he Senate and the Mansfield bill in the House, the nalion would be divided into seven planning' regions- among which (lie Tennessee Valley and adjacent area would be one. Regional authorities similar to TVA would plan—or initiate—the carrying out of the Roosevelt dream of substituting planned development and conservation of natural resources for the familiar congressional "pork barrel." Flood control, prevention of soli erosion, reforestation, storing of water for irrigation, cheap electricity, decentralization as against urban congestion, new opportunities for millions and employment for th e unemployed arc among the' objective.?. Six More Authorities Senator George w. Norris of Nebraska, recently ill, i s bade here In good.health. He has a remarkable record/or success on legislative objectives; so something seems jnore or less bound to happen. His own bill, after putting the Cumberland river basin-.and sections of tlie Missl»slppi.Valley under TVA, would crea'""" Wreck That Ought To Please Chim {Ten Students Injured When Bus Is Ditched IIUMJEIIT, Ark., Nov.

Each authority' would operate, as does TVA, with a lump sum and discretionary power to decide how, when and where the money should be sircnt. Congressman Mansfield of Texas, chairman of the House Rivers and Harbors committee, also has a bill It provides for planning—but not for actual development-of similar regional districts by regional boards which would make recommendations lo congress. Congress would then, if it saw fit, have the regular departments of government carry out the recommendations. Any power development begun In this way would have Its own Individual administrator.

The family galhered all their available money and bought a plot of 10 acres. The father and each of his six children staked a claim to a part of the Jand and began construction of the first of seven stone buildings erected on the former barren fields. Myers sold the colony was a success because "It shows what brothers and sisters can do if they stick together."
