FORD'S SHOALS OFFER CAUSES TILT IN SENATE

The New York Times
December 8, 1922


Breach in the Farm Bloc Widened by Differences Over Private and Federal Operation.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7.—The breach between Senate farm bloc members over the Muscle Shoals project was reopened today in an hour's tilt between Senator Heflin, Democrat, of Alabama, who again urged acceptance of Henry Ford's development offer, and Chairman Norris of the Agriculture Committee, who opposed the Ford proposal.

Senator Heflin asserted, and Senator Norris denied, that Mr. Ford proposed to cut fertilizer prices in half if his offer for the power plant should be accepted.  Senator Heflin scored the Government development project in the bill of Representative Dickinson, Republican, of Iowa, a member of the House farm bloc, and declared that the Norris Government operation bill would block developments of power or fertilizer.
