ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY. JULY 21, 1954 TWELVE PAGES Published Daily Except Sunday SINGLE COPY FIVE CENTS Ike Denies Trying To Destroy TVA Tells Press He Doesn't Believe Reds Willing to Risk All-Out War Knowland Calls WASHINGTON (AP) — President Eisenhower said today anybody who accuses him of trying to destroy the Tennessee Valley Authority is in error — to put it as mildly as possible. • • ' -* The administration's attitude to* ward TVA has come under hot debate in the Senate, revolving about an Eisenhower-endorsed proposal for a new private power source in the Tennessee Valley. •• f* I i* Tiie President spoke out on the HAP I Am Hi Oil AH controversy at a news conference I VI VvlllUlwllUII largely devoted to the Indochina • • settlement reached at Geneva. In the course of this discussion he said he does not believe the Communists are willing to risk an all- out war with the free world. As for his legislative program in general. Eisenhower said he thinks it is coming along in good shape although Congress is not giving him everything he asked for. TVA National Question He spoke without rancor of yesterday's House vote turning down his four-year public housing program, and said simply he will make recommendations to the next Congress aimed at meeting the housing needs which will exist at that 'ime. On the TVA controversy, Eisenhower said the question is a national and not simply a regional one. He described himself as not bound forever by his stand that private power should be fed into the TVA system as he directed in a recent order. This order stirred up lengthy Senate debate which has delayed action on his atomic energy program as a whole. The President said he's always willing to adopt a better course if one is shown to him. But in the TVA dispute, he said, it is a question of building steam plants to produce electricity. He said the problem is: If the federal government is going to undertake the building of the plants, why not do it in such places as the Missouri Valley before doing it in the already developed Tennessee Valley region. He emphasized he was simply trying to find out the facts, to determine the best policy, and he added with vigor that anybody who gets up and says there is any attempt to destroy TVA is, to put it as mildly as possible, in error. Statement Read The President began his news conference with a prepared statement saying he was glad agreement to stop the bloodshed in Indochina had been reached, although "the agreement contains features which we do not like." Eisenhower said "any renewal Of A-Law Today Will Force 24-Hour Session to Finish Bill if Necessary By WHITNEY SHOEMAKER WASHINGTON (&— Majority .Leader Knowland (R-Calif) called today for an around-the-clock session of the Senate, if necessary, to complete action on atomic legislation. He punctuated his statement by directing the sergeant-at-arms to haul in cots from nearby cloakrooms and corridors for possible use. "We're not going to have one or two votes. We're going to finish this bill if we "iave to stay all night to do it," Knowland said as the Senate began its eighth day of debate on the atomic bill. Opponents of President Eisenhower's directive to the Atomic Energy Commission to sign a contract with a private utility group to supply power in the Tennessee Valley Authority area informally agreed to a test vote on this key issue at a meeting late last night. But Sen. Gore (D-Tenn) quarterback for this group, and Sen. Morse (Ind-Ore) insisted they would prolong debate if they did not win the first round. Knowland recessed the Senate last night after he received word of the understanding that a vote would come sometime today on the big issue "at-controversy. Faced with a showdown. Gore 'and other foes of the contract proposal combed Republican ranks for support. Gore conceded his forces needed that help..

Francis Cherry's claim of a scandal and graft free administration drew fire today from two of his three opponents for renomination in next Tuesday's Democratic primary. State Sen. Guy Jones of Conway, speaking in south Arkansas, said the chief executive's statements ; 'cast reflections on all past administrations." Huntsville publisher Orval Faubus, in northeast Arkansas, said auditors' reports on several state departments didn't jibe with Cherry's version. Following his first Talkathon appeared of the campaign last night Cherry spent the morning in Little Rock attending to state business. He goes to Forrest City later in the day for a dinner and speech tonight. Jones claiming complete independence from "any present, past or future group of politicians," said Cherry claimed to be,, "the only honest governor the state ever had and that he is the only honest and decent candidate in the race." "With that statement he has cast reflections on all past administrations of this state," Jones declared. "If he has had clean government — and I challenge that — it is because he has been a do-nothing governor." Cherry has several times pointed to the fact that none of his opponents had attempted to link his administration "with any scandal or graft," saying he was elected in 1952 "to clean up the government and I've done that." Jones spoke in El Dorado last See CHERRY on Page 12 McClellan. Charges Misrepresentation By THE ASSOCHTED PRESS Sen. John McClellan yesterday said he knew of no issue that has been "more misrepresented, exaggerated, distorted and confused than the so-called tidelands legislation." McClellan charged misrepresentation on the part of his' opponents for the Democratic nomination who have attacked his vote for the bill giving coastal states title to the tidelands oil reserves. Former Gov. Sid McMath, one of McClellan's three opponents, has kept the senator under a constant stream of criticism for voting for the measure. McMath says that many millions oi dollars that could have been spent in Arkansas on school construction and teacher salaries were forfeited through loss of returns from tideland oil. McClellan said those who say- school children were robbed by "those of us who voted for the tidelands bill" are misrepresenting the facts. He said title to the tidelands that went to the coastal states covered only one tenth of the Continental Shelf, and one sixth of the estimated oil reserves beneath the Senatorial Candidates —2 Sid McMath: Old Campaigner Shows How to Invade Opponent's Lair By LEON HATCH Malvern, Ark. <#) — Sid McMath last night invaded John L. McClellan's home territory with a blistering attack on his senatorial opponent — and a couple of apparent side thrusts at another old'enemy, Gov. Francis Cherry. Crowd-wise and applause - wise, McMath came off at least the equal of McClellan, who opened his formal campaign for renomination in Malvern, his former home, on July 10. Malvern Police Chief Bill Funk said the enthusiastic audience which heard McMath was "as large as" the crowd of 5,000 persons — Funk's estimate — who listened to McClellan from the same platform in front of the courthouse. Today McMath went deeper into the McClellan bailiwick in his campaign to unseat the senator. The former governor speaks tonight at Camden, which McClellan now calls home, after scheduled visits today to Rison, Thornton, Bearden, Fordyce and other points. McMath charged last night that McClellan had "flip-flopped, vacillated and repeatedly reversed the field" in his relations with the controversial Sen. Jot McMartty of Wisconsin. Near the end of his speech McMath used a discussion of Social Security legislation to lead into the subject of old age assistance. "I don't think it's right for old folks to be required to get rid of their cow, chickens or the like or run the risk of having their pension checks cut," he declared. Opponents of Gov. Cherry in his current campaign for a second term nomination have said the same thing in stronger terms. They have charged the Cherry administration with cutting welfare checks if "the olf 1 . folks" attempt to help themselves by keeping a cow, raising chickens or growing a garden. Cherry and Welfare Commissioner A. J. Moss have said only basis for the accusation is that federal regulations require a small deduction if welfare clients have a cow but that there is nothing the state can do about it. Again McMath — after his familiar charge that McClellan represents the "power lobby" — reminded his audience that "you did not have an increase in electric rates when I was governor of Arkansas." s* Pow«r soa Ligbt Co. has instituted a rate increase under a bond which guarantees refunds if the boost eventually is disallowed. Cherry's current opponents have blamed the Cherry - appointed Public Service Commission—and the governor himself—for the increase. McMath's apparent sniping at Cherry followed criticism of McMath's administration and its highway operations by Cherry Monday. Cherry, who defeated McMath for a third term as governor in 1952, had said repeatedly he did not intend to take part in the senatorial race "as long as they let me alone." Two years ago McClellan openly campaigned for Cherry and McMath denounced as an "unholy alliance," McClellan, Cherry and the Arkansas Power and "Light Co. The crowd which heard McMath included several motorcades, some of which came blaring into town after the candidate already had started speaking. Among the delegations was a 144-car group from Garland County. The "live" audience—the speech was broadcast — spilled off the courthouse square and out into the strt*t on two sides. shelf. He said title to the remainder of the shelf and oil was vested in the federal government. Protection of each state's title to mineral and other wealth that might lie submerged under its inland navigable "waterways was included in the bills. Two Bills McClellan said the opposition refers to only one of the bills. "They never told you there were two measures." Paul Chambers, of Helena, another of McClellan's primary opponents, yesterday criticised the Benson farm policy and pledged nis support of 90 per cent of parity for farmers. He said also, he would seek the continuation of the conservation policy. Chambers aired his "questio- thon" over KFSA-TV in Fort Smith, as he carried his campaign through northwest Arkansas. Chambers has disputed McMath's contention that the oil millionaires benefitted from the legislation. Chambers told a listener on a recent radio program: ''It doesn't make any difference to them where the royalties go, they've got pay anyway." GETS SCHOOL POST — Mrs. V. B.

A spokesman for Premier Ngo Dinh Diem's government termed the agreement to divide Indochina's richest and most populous state with the Communists "disastrous for the Vietnamese people." But a Vietnamese sergeant seemed to speak for many others ^ of his countrymen: "Good. Maybe i now I can get out of the army and return to civilian life." Frenchmen appeared even more relieved. "We've had enough," said one Saigon businessman. "Either the United States decided to enter the war with her atomic weapons or else there had to be a cease-fire. Nothing Else to Do "You didn't want to become involved so there was nothing else to do. After all, you fought only three years in Korea and gave up, so you cannot blame us for wanting peace after eight." Premier Diem called his cabinet into emergency session to study the Geneva agreement. The spokesman for his government termed the agreement inadequate. areas of Southeast Asia which will almost certainly impose new burdens on this country and its allies and absorb some or all of the Indochina savings.
