Arkansas in Washington By GORDON BROWN WASHINGTON. <£>|—As the defense effort gains in momentum, Arkansas manganese grows Increasingly important. Manganese Is used chiefly in making steel and Arkansas h a^ large deposits of low-grade manganese clays. Normally not too profitable because of the high cost of recovering the manganese, the Arkansas deposits become important as the need for the metal increase* and ^ke price rises. Negotiations are under way between the government and some ArhenMc producers 'which may lead to yo*«rnment purchase ot oonald- —*"~ quantities of Arkansas man- Jfejor Negotiation «• LMFfion, administrator of the materials procurement ag- ecc* htt notified Senator McClel- l*n «D-A*k> Wrat m major negotia- ttem tevohM th« We*t morel and MeMfMuee Company at Butesvllle, Ark., and "we hay* hopee that a *jr be oon*umated at an LMMH »bo Mid that Individual rtirttoaor oontracta can be made by anvil pvoduocro who are abl« to do mining and t-hm shop N E W Air Conditioned By Refrigeration •r Community Center" MANILA, ARK.

Larson snid, and "we would be glad to have others do the same." Exploration by the Bureau of Mines have shown fairjy large deposits of manganese in Arkansas, particularly around Batc.sville. The situation as to the Arkansas deposits, says Oliver Ralston, mines bureau metals expert, is this: Most of the best deposits are fairly deep, and rather thin, while some of the nodules, or lumps, of manganese washes away with the clay. And recovery la rated at only 40 to So per cent. Klf Eafih-Movfnf Job Al a result, .Ralston said, manganese mining' in Arkansas means a big Job of moving earth. This fa a coeily operation and hence makes the price high. At prscent, Ral»too laid, manganese can be produced generally. But K& th* demand Increase*, u t-he n&ed grows more acute, price isn't such an important factor. Then, too, he said, there's always the chance that someone will hit upon » new method of recovering all tlie manganese from the ore- bearing clay, some method which will prevent the manganese from washing away with the clay. "Lightning may strike sometime,' he Mid. If that happen*, then th« Arkan- s«js manganese will be & highly important resource. Ray Sallee Dies At Pocahontas POCAHONTA3, Ark. (AP)—Ray E.
