Addressing an estimated 1,000* persons from the bach of a trailer i truck parked on the Court House ' lawn, the governor said that East Arkansas had been "denied natural wa,s" service for many years and that "I am happy to report that you are getting natural gas'to accelerate industrialization." "Ben Lancy could have brought you natural gas, but he didn't," Governor McMath said. The governor said his administration has intervened with the Federal Power Commission to obtain orders requiring gas transmission rms operating pipelines across rkansas to serve communities near lines. Intervention of this type is pos- ible throught state Public Service iotnmission action on. orders of the overnor. Governor McMath stress- d that his opponent had this power ut failed to exercise it. Localizing n major aspect of his arnpaign for a second term, the ovevnor injected a review of road -k underway and contemplated Mississippi County into his alack on Laney's "mythical" hlgh- vay program. Governor McMath cited work un- M~ way on Highway 18 between Blytheville and Manila, the Big .ake bridge project, proposed blacfc- ouping of Highways 14 and 181 rom Marie to Keiser, plans for blacktopping eight miles of road be- wcen Armorcl and Huffman and he road from Huffman to Yarbro. Slate Higtiway Work A total of 51,000,000 In highway oik will have been contracted for by December, he said. By next year, said, every county in the state —"regardless of how the county voted"—will be connected with the Arkansas highway system by at .cast one hard-surface road. "Th e road p rog ra m Is tn f u 11 .ving," the governor said. "More roads have been built in the last 12 months than were built by Ben Lancy in all his do-nothing term." He also charged that more roads would have been built to date had not his administration "had to do all Laney's highway maintenance.' Rig Lake Bridge Governor McMath asked his audience to "remember bow long you had to wait for the new Big Lake I bridge. Laney promised you a new Big 'Lake bridge in 1947." His opponent's only highway program, the governor charged, was a plan to submit the McMath road program to 3 vole of the people. Governor McMath said Lancy disregarded the report of a committee the former governor named In 1946 to investigate the road situation. ' 'Two ye nrs I n te r," th e gove r not said, "he still didn't have a plan." Much of Governor McMath's at- in- R. I. Haley Dies In Hospital Here Services to be Held Sunday for Veteran !
