Osceola Begins to Act On Barge Terminal Idea At its monthly meeting' last week, the Usceuln City Council initiated action on an idea that has lieen "on file" both here nnd there — ami especially here —• for quite some time. For at least the past four years, the possibility of n river barge terminal at Barficltl has Ijcen listed among the plans • for the future by the Chamber of Commerce here. The idea was still being "talked u|i" as early as last month by an active member of the C. of C. here. The desirability of a river Iwvge terminal here lies in reduced freight rates. Mayor Ren -Ruller told the Usceolit City Council that "We have missed yet- linj; two factories that 1 know of because of high freight rates here." Blytheville very possibly has been by-passed by industry for that same reason. Rather than criticize the Blytheville Chamber of Commerce for keeping the idea on its list of objectives luo long or make bitter noises because Osceola has the bait and is running with it, we prefer to suggest that any possible competition give way to unity, Such an enterprise as a barge terminal would benefit the entire county. Should river conditions. or other considerations make it more feasible to locate a terminal at liarficld, Osceolans would have only about 25 miles to transport their goods and still could effect considerable savings. !f it were located at Osceola. goods from here would have to lie moved only a net distance of 10 miles since ;< terminal at Barficld would be eight miles from Blylheville. Since t\vo terminals are obviously unlikely, it would he better for the county generally if Blytheville and Oscoola threw their combined weight behind this pro.U'd. It sounds lo us like a situation in which two heads would \,t better than one. action, the President cited "the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws" and his position as President and commander-in-chief of the armed forces. The crux of the storm of controversy which resulted from Truman's move i,s whether or not the Coiislitulion rcall.v gives him the power he believes it does in this case. Steel companies say il does not, and have taken their case lo the courts. .Many others agree. At least two officials of the Justice Department believe such powers, inherent in the Constitution but not specifically .stated in regard lo strikes, could be used only if the country wa.s really falling apart. That is, if we were threatened by invasion or perhaps by violent internal strife of some sort. But as for settling a sieel strike, I hoy say, the President has overshot himself. The President says he didn't use the T«ft - Hartley procedure because it couldn't have prevented a steel shutdown of at least a week or two. Critics of the ('resident's action say, all right, but why didn't he get the Tafl-Hartley machinery rolling sooner, thereby probably averting the period of shutdown? The President was concerned about the effects of a steel strike on the defense effort. That's a serious matter, of course, but what about the government's recent action in releasing more steel for civilian use? The respective merits of the cases of the disputing slecl companies and the steelworlicrs union have been submerged for the time by the explosive reaction to the President's move. Ironically, I hough, it has been reliably reported that the disputants were only a couple of points away from agreement two days before the .seizure order. The overriding issue, whether the President acted within his Constitutional rights, is now before the courts, the steel companies charging that what he did was illegal. The court action promises lo be of epic proportions.
