WEDNESDAY, JUNE 1053 Rl.VTHEVTU.E 'APR.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NIN1 McClellan Gets Table Rock Restored By GORDON DROWN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate Appropriations Committee today approved a 8'/> million dollar appropriation for Table Hock reservoir near the Arkansas-Missouri border for the year starting July 1. This approval, on recommenda- !• lion of a subcommittee of which Sen. McClelland (D-Ark) is a member, came after the House, last month declined to allow any funds for the big multiple-purpose dam on the White River. McClellan told a reporter the 3! 2 million plus an unexpended balance o[ I'i million from last year's Appropriation would give Army Engineers a total of five million dolt lars for use in the corning year. ^his was the minimum amount the engineers told McCellan they would have to get to keep the Pi'ojeet going forward. The committee also approved funds for several other Arkansas projects. These Include $5,225,000 for Blakely Mountain reservoir, two million dollars to complete Bull Shoals dam, and $4,560,000 for bank stabilization on the Arkansas River in Arkansas and Oklahoma. The House sllowea $5,500.000 for Blakely Mountain, two, million for million for Bull Shoals and two the Arkansas River. What the Senate committee did generally, McClellan explained, was to cut about five per cent from Eisenhower budget requests for flood control and navigation. The President had recommended $4,800,000 for the Arkansas River, $4,500.000 for Blakely Mountain reservoir and two million for Bull Shoals. There was no presidential provision for Table Rock. McClellan was able to persuade the committee to nctd S3,500,000 for Table Rock and $2,500.000 [or the Arkansas River while reducing Blakely Mountain by $225,000. He said he was able to hold the two that will about finish this project. This is the second straight year that McClellan has been able to get funds for Table Rock added in me senate bill. Last year, after the House turned down the project, the Senate added funds and in conference an appropriation of three million dollars finally was agreed on to start the project. This year former President Truman recommended $10,800,000 for for Table Rock but the Eisenhower budget eliminated the item. Back To Committee Should the Senate accept its committee recommendation, question of Table Rock again be threshed out by a House-Senate conference committee. McClellan not be a member of the committee. Although McClellan obtained from Army Engineers a break' down of where the additional $2.800,000 would bo spent, he said the Senate committee decided to recommend it be left to engineers to use on an emergency basis. In other words, he said, two million — less five per cent — would be earmarked under the Senate bill while $2.800.000— also less five per cent — would not. The Senate committee's approval in this manner of the president's full request— less five per cent- gives the $4,560,000 figure for bank stabilization. McClellan said the Senate action on planning funds might provide some planning money next year for De Gray's reservoir on the Caddo River in Southern Arkansas. Arkansas also will receive some funds under the appropriation for flood control on the lower Mississippi River and tributaries.The House allowed $52,540,000 for the project. Arkansas projects approved, subject to a five per cent reduction, include: St. Francis Basin $2,500,000. White River backwater levees The House allowed only two $550,000, North bank Arkansas million dollars for the Arkansas | R^ver $460,000. $2,800,000 Eisenhowei asked was not earmarked for a was lumped as an emergency fund.
