THURSDAY, OCTOBER 96, 1WW BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAQK SEVJEHTICH Kefauver Cites D-Y Contract In Attack on Adminstration ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. (AP) — Sen! Kefauver (D-Tenn) said yesterday the Dixon-Yates contract is a "fine example of devious dealings by the monopolistic interests controlling the government." ' . . . Kefauver, who is regarded as a possible Democratic presidential aspirant in 195b, accused the Eisenhower administration of failing to check what he termed a "drive toward monopoly" in business and industry. _ . He said this at the 57th convention of the National Association of Retail Druggists. "Bold action is called for to slow this drive toward monopoly." Kefauver said, "but I regret to say that I do not see the prospects of such bold leadership from anyone In authority today." The Tennessee senator dealt at some length with the controversial contract under which the Dixon- Yates private power group would hav built a 107-million-dollav plant at West Memphis. Ark., to channel electric energy into the Tennessee Valley Authority area to replace TVA power being used at Atomic Energy Commission installations. President Eisenhower, who in 1954 had ordered the contract negotiated with the Dixon-Yates group, directed last July 11 that it be cancelled. He did so after the city of Memphis, for which much of-the Dixon-Yates power was des^ lined, annouia-ed it would build its own power $!imi. "Shocking Evidence" ' Kefauver told the druggists a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee inquiry into the Dixon-Yates contract developed what he called shocking evidence that Sherman Adams, Eisenhower's top aide, had told the Securities and Exchange commission in a telephone call "what it should do on Dixon-Yates." During testimony last summer, SEC Chairman J. Sinclair Armstrong said that at Adams' request the SEC in June postponed for three days a hearing on Dixon- Yates financing plans. Armstrong related that Adams wanted the delay to give government lawyers time to decide whether to intervene. Adams twice declined to testify before the Kefauver group, •saying Armstrong and other government witnesses could give all the information he had on the matter. He also cited his confidential relationship with Eisenhower. "May Tell FTC" Kefauver said "the shocking thing in our Dixon-Yates investigation is that it revealed the power exercised directly over independent regulatory bodies by the administration in power," "If by picking up a phone, somebody in the white house can tell one regulatory body what it should do on Dixon-Yates. . ." Kefauver said, "then that same person, or some one. might also tell the Federal Trade Commission how to en force, or how not .to enforce, the Robinson-Patman Act." That is a law which forbids unfair trade pricing practices which might lend to promote monopolies. "It is unthinkable that such a thing should happen," he continued, "but it did happen in Dixon- Yates."
