McHaney Ark-Mo Power Company Directors Confer Here The Board of Directors of the Arkansas -Missouri Powev Co. have authorized construction orders totaling ncTrly $200,000 in addition to expenditures previously authorized in the utility's 1948 expansion and WASHINGTON, Feb. 9 (UP)— i The Whllfl House said imlay there' will he no retreat on President Truman's civil rights program to pinealG revolting Soulhern Demo- crnl.s. Press Secretary Charles O. Ross denied "absolutely" a prediction by one of Mr. Truman's principal congressional advisers that the Administration would back down H little. The congressional source suggested that Mr. Truman might make a new Vatement on civil rights which vould drop out his request for legis- ation to prohibit racial dlscrInit- iation on railroads and other form. 1 ; of interstate transportation. Hi.s proposals for nnti-lynching, anti-poll tax and fair employment, emulation would remain. White House conferences with protesting Southerners have been forecast as a likely development of ,hc uproar which developed around last week's civil rights me.ssniie. Sees Cliancc for Trouble Other usually well informed persons held that Mr. Truman would be in serious election year trouble if any part of his racial, poll tax or anti-lynchEng legislation were enacted. His chance of avoiding Southern rebellion agnin&t his re-election may ultimately depend on the Senate's ability to filibuster the program until It is quite dead. Mr. Truman should rest fairly easy on that because the Senate probably will filibuster the bills to extinction. If so, the South might be expected to content with resolutions and a party-jarring protest at the Democratic National Convention, still -hort of a bolt i Many Southerners wmit back the •ervice improvement program.

The real convention showdown, however, will be on the party platform. Civil rights make good political medicine In the North where racial groups, notably Jews and Negroes, cast hundreds of thousands of voles. The administration will desire to capitalize on Mr. Truman's civil rights message with an np- proprialivc platform plank, especially since there are some indications of a Negro trend back toward the Republican Party. issued the warrant when Roe Convention j laik?<l to appear there for trial on a diarfc of violating ttic -Motor Vehicle Tlieft Act.
