BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 1860 Saar Coal Mines Causing Concern Propocol by French Could Result In Grave Situation 99 JOHN M. HIOHTOWE* WASHINGTON, Jan. 2T7 <#)—The United States was reported today to be urging France to modify Us proposal for leasing the Saar coal mines, in order to head off the danger of a political crisis in Western Europe. Th* main American suggestion Is **4d to be that if the French government liulsU on going ahead, it ahould make the contract subject to future German peace treaty provisions governing the final dLspo&Ition of the Saar land. The issue has grown to include hot Wrench and German political questions over Hie eventful fate of that Franco-German border area. American officials said today that unless the Bonn and Paris governments can resolve the problem in friendly fashion all the plans for Western European unity will be gravely endangered. American diplomats In both Bonn 'and Parts have been working to ,the situation. State Department officials have reviewed it in detail with John J. McOloy, U. S. high commissioner for Germany. Long Au European Issue ., The Saar has been a sore point :in French-German relations for more :thah a, century. The present argument arose over a recent proposal of the French to lease the coal ; mines for 50 yeans. i. The French occupy the Saar RIK! : by an agreement with the United ' Stales and Britain have detached it from their Zone of Germany. Its "economy la joined to that of Prance "and it has a government independent erf the Wast German govern• merit. •a The United States apparently has : zw> particular objection to the idea 'of the proposed French lease. Some 'Officials say privately that this ; might not be the best time to press ;the matter. But if the French Intend •to go through with their negotia- ..ttons with the Saar government, the ..•"United." States would like to .see the : teue made in such a way as to 'minimize rather t-hnn build up basin difference* between France and - ; Germany, ' German Treaty Involved i The three-power agreement under irtitoh Franch detached the Saar •from Germany provided that the '•ventual status of the area would be fixed by the German peace treaty ..—if and when there is one. ; Seizing the controversy, •'•otne German political spokesmen haw recently sought to make the Star, a rallying point for German ^nationalism by insisting that It must be returned to Germany. Xa long as the question of its final disposition is open there will ob- Yiously be opportunity for such political pressures. In this Instance, however, the West G ermnn gov- wnment itself, possibly with the urging of the occupaton powers, took the pubic position early this week that the major concern of Germany must be cooperation with the Western 'powers in the Interest of West European unity.

By CHARLES HASLF.T AF Special Wubinctea Strrlct WASHINGTON, Jail. 21—Mv-The federal government has big plans for tapping more of Hie vast hydroelectric power resources in the Southwest. Already ia has made *> start in developing public j»wer from dams In Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico', Arizona and parts of Arkansas, Missouri. Kansas, Louisiana, Colorado and Nevada. Government agencies estimate that nearly five limes the present Installed public power capacity could be developed in the area over a long period If Congress approves. President Truman celled recently for public power development wher ever feasible and private Interests are not ready to do the job cheaply as the government. He mentioned the Southwest among other areas P:lU Is Compiled The latest report compiled by federal agencies—Army Engineers, the Interior and Agriculture departments and the power commission—show praient hydro-electric capacity of the area ns 1,651,30)) kilowatts. The report estimates the underdeveloped potential at 6,765,000 kilowatts. An PFC engineer said 5.000 kilowatts would supply an average city of 10,000 population. Congress is being asked this year to authorize many additional projects in the Southev,'st. some with power features, and to provide funds for continuing work on projects already started. Power is a by-product of flood control and reclamation works.

Present hydro-electric capacity in the Southwest, Including Norfolk dam in Arkansas, Dcnison In Texas- Oklahoma and the state-operated Pensncola Dam in Oklahoma, Is 361.000 kilowatts. Of all the remaining undeveloped potential 'of 4,102,000 kilowatts is on the planning board except for 300,000 in the Gulf Southwest. 4-H Club Is Organized By Missouri Youths ot Number light Community A 4-H Club ha» been organized at Number Eight Community near Cooler. .Mo., with 21 youths aj charter members.
