The representatives made their comments in a private, informal session initiated by Sen. John L. McClellan, D-Ark. Attending the meeting were officials of several industries that depend on river transportation including the Inter- slate Commerce Commission, the Army Corps of Engineers, Ihe Coast Guard and Ihe ping demands. "As a result, some industries have experienced delays In the shipping of their merchandise; others have found it necessary lo use other available means o! transportation; and In general the f u l l potential of the govern menl's tremendous economic investment in the Arkansas Iliver system is not being ulili zed." said McClellan.

McClellan said barge operators at the meeting contended ;hat heavy rainfall last year in .he state made river navigation difficult. He said the operators also said the demand for immediate service on the waterway was not yet great enough to justify additional equipment. 5'/4% 71/2% We have a saving) program and interest rate to meet your needs.

(AP VVirepIioto) Many Auto Workers Still Off Job As Sales Slump Continues! Summer Comfort DETROIT (AP) -- All hut one U.S. auto plant will be op- eraling next week as car production begins to pick up, but 108,000 workers remain on indefinite layoff because of the continued sales slump. Many auto workers have been jobless since January when Ihe energy crisis, Ihen at its peak, began to make a big dent in car sales. Industry spokesmen concede that few of them will be back on Ihe payroll before the 1975 model run begins this summer. Many won't be recalled even then. Production this week reached its highest level of the year, although assembly of automobiles is still running 20.5 per cent behind the same week in 1973. For the year, aulo sales are wfn 2(j per cent from last yeaV's sizzling pace. Landowners File Suit To Block Creek Project LITTLE ROCK (AP)-- Four Lincoln County landowners have filed suit in U.S. District Court at Little Rock seeking lo block Hie proposed $1 million Cane Creek recreational development project near Star City. The proposed project would create a 4,880 - acre state park near Star City. The m a i n f e a - ture of the park would be a 2,465-acre lake to be created in the Cane Creek area. The 1973 General Assembly appropriated $500,000 for the project, with the remainder to be furnished by the federal Soil Conservation Service. The project is a joint effort of Ihe Soil Conservation Service and the state Game and Fish Commission. The suit also attacked the environmental impact statement filed in behalf of the project President Nixon, speaking inl Jackson, Miss., said Thursday! that he believes the economy! has passed through "Ihe lowest! poinl of Ihe downturn" and will! slart picking up later Ihis year.! He singled oul the aulo in-l duslry' as one trouble spot! where Uie outlook is bright-1 ening. BOTTOMED OUT General Motors. Ford andl Chrysler believe their sales de-l cline has botlomed oul, and! have ended the short-terml planl shutdowns that have p!a-l gued the industry since last De-| comber, None of the firms, however,! will estimate when plants willl return lo full capacity or whenl their indefinitely idled employ-l es --15 per cent of the bigl three U.S. work force of 700,000| -- will be rehired. "It's totally unpredictable,"! said a spokesman at Ford,I where indefinite layoffs are all 16,500. "It hinges on sales.! When sales increase, we'll in-l crease production and start re-| hiring." At GM, where sales are al third below the 1973 pace, 80.-I 000 workers are on long-termi layoff. Company spokesmen! said it is unlikely they will bel recalled before late summer! when the 1975-model run begins! in earnest. I And "unless there is a sub-l stantial change 1 in demand," re-l calls may not begin even then,) a spokesman said. The General Motors assembly! plant in Southgalc, Calif., will! be the only Big Three plant! closed next week. It is being! converted from large to small| car production.
