TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1951 Assails Private Utilities For Opposing Arkansas Co-Ops LITTLE ROCK (AP)—The head of the Rural Electrification Administration last night assailed private utilities for their opposition to a proposed co-operative power Lucr fhlTfim! n", Vi"^ 81 C 'of' e R ' Wiokard ' administrator of the REA, told delegates to the fifth annual Arkansas Stale Electric Co-operative convention here that the opposition was a part of private company strategy to gain a "full monopoly" on the power , dustry ansas farmers for increased yields of food and fiber next year. In a report on production, goals Wickard defended a loan of $10.05 million that his agency made to fie<;ice constrv tlon of the plant tqSthe Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp., at Ozark. Loan In l.fne with Policy He said the loan was In keeping with a federal government policy dating back to 1906 which gives non-profit organlzatloas preference on po\vcr generated by government hydro-electric dams. Arkansas Electric plans to build the plant and string 544 miles of Arkansas News Briefs— Alumina Plant Strike Enters Sixth Day; No Sign of Break By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BENTON, (AP)—A strike of APL union at the big, new alumina plant near here entered its sixth day today with no immediate pros- p«!c(i of a settlement. > A meeting of union and company officials last night failed to bring about a settlement. Ralph Beachem, superintendent of construction for the Aluminum Company of America, said that another meet- Ing was not scheduled. The strike of Local 155, Plumbers and Pipefitters Union,, has halted work on construction of the p»nt. The SO strikers set up a picket line last Thursday and about 530 other union workers refused to cross it. Dave Dove, business aeent of the union, has said that the strikers are seeking a contract with the Vogt-Conant Co., of Cleveland, .^sub-contractor on the project. He has denied another report that the walkout was the result of a jurisdictions! dispute between his union and the AFL Ironworkers. Beachem said he understood Dove had presented a company proposal to end the strike to higher union officials. Dove could not be reached for comment. transmission lines throughout northwest Arkansas to service three distributing co-ops. The plant would be leased to the Southwest.

SPA in turn would supply the distributing co-ops with power for their customers, Opposition Cited Pour private companies and a labor union have opposed the pro- ssnss-are has been taken to court by the pro- Logic Ensnares Men, But Women Ignore It, Stay Happy Like Pole Vaulter testants. Wickard satd that if the private .itilitles are successful, they would 'prsve \>, the co-operatives" concern:<1 from enjoying the full benefits of the Hydro power controlled bv the SPA." The Fitht Grows He added: "Now every opportunity, it seems being taken by the power companies to stop the co-operative* in Arkansas and nearby states from proceeding with the rection of generation and, transmission lines which provide for. the interchange of power between the co-operatives and the SPA. 'I .suppose the basic reason for this opposition Is that the power companies know that if the REA co-operatives are prevented -from entering into this arrangement with SPA. the users of public power will become wholly dependent on the commercial companies for carrying the power from the SPA to them. Advantages Wanted "To put It another way, power companies would like to obtain for TOW YORK. UP] — Women are npertor to men In many ways. The trouble to they know It. Men use logic as a crutch, something to lean on. .Women use logic like a pole vaulter. When It can lift them no higher, they let go of a prisoner of It—and go sailing on. They never become logic, as men do. If it can no longer serve them, they simply rise above logic. This explains why women are meptally superior to men, and why ^k^oman in history.ever was prove!7,Trong. Illogical? Of course. But wrong? Never. Women Emotionally Superior Women show the same change- of-pace ability In the matter of •motion. They are great broken field runners here, too, and that Is why they ar« emotionally mperlor to men. Many a strong man will let an •motion get him down until, as he teys, "I feel lower than a whale's abdomen." But a woman? when lh8 feels that low she sets about finding a way to have a whalg of a time out of it. Reactions io "Glooms" This difference between tha sexes le most clearly shown In how they reset to "tho glooms." The glooms Is a disease that thrives_on clvill- ratlon. It Is the feeling you get when something goes a-wry. As civ- Uization gets more and more complicated, there naturally are more things to go a-wry. so the glooms jeem to mushroom more and more. b^ut whether the glooms come SSlp a broken heart, a lost Job. or a traffic cop's unkind remarks, a woman knows how to riss above them better than a man. He wallows In his depression until he almost drown* ol self-pity, she teases herself out of despair by giving herself small unexpected pleasures. She fakes positive action to lead her spirits out of the black jail. Women Buy a Hat That is why, when women feel bad, they buy themselves a new hat or lunch at a restaurant they can't 'afford. They do something positive. to break the pattern of their mood, and make themselves feel better. They celebrate. Men don't know how. They Just •go on feeling sorry lor themselves until they wear out their worries or their worries wear them out They end up with ulcers—the ladies with new wardrobes. Men Haven't Learned Poor men. They never have learned how and when to celebrate. They think the time to have a gay night out on the town is after they have had a raise In pay. That's when they ought to go home and relax. They feel good enough already. It's when they've had tough luck they ought to'dress up, see a good show, and start opening champagne bottles. Anything to pull them out of the glooms. Life Is or It Isn't To men )ife Js usually black or white. They feel good or they feel bad, and they have no ready formula to change the color of thetr emotions. To women life is more pastel, and they are artists in living. They change the colors if they get too somber. At least they try to. When I explained this theory to my wife. Frances, she replied: TO YOUR CLOTHES YOU* CLOTHES LAST LONGER...

Arkansas Truck Fees Target of Operators PAGE a 1949 state law requiring truckers to pay fees on gross revenues from operations In Arkansas has been challenged by 10 out-ot-state companies. The truckers yesterday asked Pu- laskl Chancery Court to issue an injunction to prevent the state from collecting the taxes. They named Attorney General Ike Murry and the three members of the Arkansas Public Service Commission as defendants. "It's Not Constitutional" Act 202 of 1949 is unconstitutional, Ihe truckers charged, because II attempts to compel them to pay a privilege tax for transacting "wholly Interstate business" In Arkansas. None of the plaintiffs are engaged In Intrastate operations In Arkansas, the suit. said. The truckers alleged that when they refused to pay the fees last year, the PSC certified the amount plus a 25 per cent penalty io Murry for collection. Murry then notified the firms that if the fees were not paid he would file suit to collect them, the suit alleged. "Fe«* Cilled Illegal" The suit further alleged that the fees were Illegal because the money is credited to the state's' General revenue fund which is used "for the purpose of paying administra live operations and salaries and no part ol the fund Is allocated to the construction or maintenance of highways. Act 262 levies an annual fee against certain public utilities, Including railroads and other common carriers. Revenue Is used primarily to finance the PSC. The fee must not exceed two-fifths ot one per cent of the gross revenues In Arkansas of each carrier.
