FAG* nro BLYTHEVILLE (ARKJ COURIER NEWS President Backs TVA Steam Plant f«w*r Source Said To •• N«c«uary for National Security WASHINGTON, May 27. (UP) — The Tennessee Valley Authority today hu President Truman and his adviscn on Industrial mobilization in it« corner In a fight lor a steam power plant at Johnaonville, Tennessee. Mr. Truman and Chairman Arthur M. Kill of the National Security Resources Board said the proposed steam plant is urgently needed for national security. They urged the Senate Appropriations Committee to approve $4,000.000 (or TVA to stall work on the $54,000,000 plant. Its purpose would be to give.a steady level of production of electrical power even during dry weather when the hydroelectric output is low.-. The House rejected TVA's request for the steam plant appropriation. But TVA supporters hoped the Senate would restore the Hem In the Government. Corporations Appropriations, Bill and tiint the House finally would agree to it. Strong plugs from Mr. Truman and Hill capped the drive of TVA supporters to get approval of an appropriations subcommittee to start the steam planl allotment through the Senate. President Truman wrote to Chairman Styles Bridges. R,, N. H., of the full Senate Appropriations Committee that the proposed Johnsonville steam plant "Is urgently needed at this time to meet potential requirements in the event of an emergency affecting the national security. Needed for Reserve He said, however, that the planl I would be needed "to provide a mini- ' mum reserve capacity for supplying firm power" even if there only were a "normal peacetime growth of demand." And for this double-barreled reason. Mr. Truman urged, "in the strongest possible terms, the favorable' consideration" by the Senate Appropriations Committee and Congress. President Truman also forwarded . a letter from Hill tirglnr construe-' tlon of the steam plant "entirely on national security considerations." Hill said the outlook is for an "inadequate" margin for reserves in electrical power production in the Southeast through 1951. "Accordingly," he said, "every effort should be msde by the federal government to support and expedite the power expansion progrnm designed to relieve this critical power situation. "From the standpoint of national security, a large power cushion should be provided in order to permit prompt handling of future loads that may arise ,In connection with the rearmament progrnm,'" v . ' .He said his board believed the proposed Johnsoriville plant would provide R "better solution" to (lie power supply problem than a similar facility built outside TVA's operating area.
