, DECEMBER 18, 1953 (AKK.V COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVFH State Given Nearly Completed Plant By Westinghouse LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Westinghouse Corp. yesterday gave the State of Arkansas a nearly completed lamp plant near Hot Springs. The possibly unprecedented presentation of a 31-acre site nnd an nlmost 100,000 square feet building near Hot Springs was made after Westinghouse announced it would not complete the plant. Announcement of the gift was made at a special news conference at the Governor's mansion. Plant construction, originally intended for manufacture of glass for Incandescent .light bulbs, was stopped several weeks ago. L. S. McLeod of St. Louis, Westinghouse v^e president and Southwest Region general manager, and P. -:. Sloan of BloomSield, N. J., manager of Westinghouse's Lamp Division, said the gift is "entirely without strings." Sloan said, the gift was inspired by Gov. Francis Cherry's luncheon for industrialists in New York on Dec. 2. Cherry outlined Arkansas' advantages to new and expanding industry. 5750,000 Value Sloan eyplained that the Hot Springs plant had been planned at a time when it seemed advantageous for the company to have its own glass plant. He said, however, that developments in the glass Commodity And Stock Markets- New York Cotton (12:30 quotations) Mar 3275 3282 3212 May 3301 3308 3298 July 3283 3289 3280 Oct 3223 3233 3223 New Orleans Cotton Mar 3274 3281 3270 May 3301 3307 3297 July 3280 3288 3280 Oct 3224 3232 3222 Chicago Soybeans Jan .... 299 301'A 2981/4 Men 300'A 302 298 3 ,4 Msy 297 299 296 July in 293 290 3282 3308 3288 3233 3280 3307 3284 3232 300 300 3 i 298 292% C icogp Corn Mch .... 115 15614 155 158 Vi M-.y .... 156 1 /, 15T/4 155% 151 'A C icago Wheor Mch 203 Vz 204V., 204 Jj, . 204% 204 S::y .... 205 205V 4 Kcw York Sfocks 02:45 quotations) A T and T ................ 15? 1/8' Tobacco ............ 621/8 Amcor.ria Copper ......... 30 1/4 Beth Steel ................ 513/8 Clirysler ................. 61 1/4 dca-Cola ............... 153 C-:n Electric .............. 88 1/2 GUI Motors ............... 59 7/8 Montgomery Ward ........ 55 7/8 N Y Central .............. 19 5/8 I Int Harvester ............. 27 1/2 j Republic Steel ............ 43 3/4 Radio ................... 24 3/8 Socuny Vacuum .......... 35 1/4 Sludebaker ............. 21 3/4 Standard of N J .......... 72 3/4 T:::ss Corp ................ 56 5/8 S--?.rs .................... 61 1/4 U S Steel ................. 40 1/2 Sou Pacific .............. 37 5/8 Livestock NATIONAL STOCKYARDS, 111.

"Therefore," he said, "completion of the plant could not be justified economically." Sloan said he company's gift had a value of approximately $750,000, but Cherry and others said they considered the estimate "highly conservative." Cherry said he was pleased, at Westinghouse's action and had several industries in mind which might be able to use the plant. He declined to name them. He did not speculate on whether the plant would be sold, leased or donated if the satisfactory manufacturer could be found. Legal transfer of the plant, which according to original plans would have cost between five and six million dollars, will be completed soon, company officials said. ARMY (Continued from Page 1) sile is several hundred feet up and the missile's own liquid-fuel rocket engine takes over. Information obtained by radar has provided the general area in which the enemy plane is located. A navigational system steers the Nike to this area. Here the Nike's radar eyes begin to seek out the plane and manipulate the fins to head it toward the target. In the final phase, a "homing" device takes over and guides the mis- sues into the target. Presumably a proximity fuse could detonate the missile's explosive load at the correct distance from the enemy bomber even if an actual contact is not made. In its official motion picture, the Army showed a Nike blowing up the comparatively slow and easy target provided by a BIT. That World War H plane has a top speed of only about 250 miles an hor. But Army spokesmen emphasized the Nike can operate as efficiently against jet aircraft with far higher speeds. KE (Continued from Page 4) told reporters he thought that by "getting: things in line" Congress could bring; the Treasury's cash income and outgo into line in the next fiscal year. This would mean that the regular budget would show a -deficit of about four billions dollars, represented in Treasury receipts for gove: nment trust funds.

Second period for hunting.,d«r in Arkansas this year is December M through 26. Long before cold weather set in, however, the men and boyS were getting their hunting camps in shape, oiling their rifles and shotguns and "sending word" to the guides lo be on hand betorc dawn on the 14th. There was a lime in Arkansas when this sport was closed to the hunter because of a shortage of deer. But nowadays there are enough [or all, thanks to stringent and successful stale and federal game laws. I'm not a deei huntei myself, but 1 like logo lo the camps—in the swamp country of Chicot or Desha countia or in the uplands around Sylamorc. Ii's ihe comradeship I like. Half the fun is in talking about plans for tomorrow, or today's luck—good or bid. Comradeship can be found in many places and many things. Another fine adjunci to real man torn radcahip, I think, is good American beer or ale- served in bottles, cans or on draught. There's nothing as fine as beer, served in clean, wholesome surroundings, either in a well regulated tavern or cafe or in a hunting lodge at the close of a day's chase.
