Most likely it will be on an ef fort to add 6'/ 2 million dollars t the bill to finance construction o a power line from Memphis to the middle of the Mississippi River tc connect with a line from the pro posed Dixon-Yates plant. Rep. W. F. Non-ell (D-Ark), who supports the West Memphis power plant proposal, believes then Is a good chance the House wil approve the item. Norrell rather expects the Houst Appropriations Committee, o which he is a member, to omi from the appropriation bill for th( Tennessee Valley Authority anj money for the power line. He bases this opinion on th belief that the subcommittee hand ling the TVA appropriation bill i overwhelmingly opposed to th Dixon-Yates proposal.

Norrell says that the Republican bloc still will vote almost solidly for the plant and will be joined by many Democrats. The proposal stiil would have to clear a hostile Senate subcommittee and probably a floor fight In the Senate. Norrell, Sen. J, W. Fulbright (D- Ark) and other Arkansas members of Congress believe that either private industry should be allowed to take a hand and halt further expansion of the TVA or the entire power industry should be nationalized.
