U.S. energy crisis real for thousands OKNE SMITH :drk Timrs S-i vii-r NL'W YORK The much ta scd-tbaui "encrg; crisis" al- most became a reality last ivcck. and could still happen i his wcc-k il temperatures m miny of the jia'Jon hold freezing. But ihousards of in Mississippi. Louisiana. Arkan- sas. Crecrgia. Minnesota and Iliinoir. learned how real the energy crisis i5 when they were i out of work as fuel plies ran out. In many other areas, includ- ing the oil- and gas-rich soutii- v.es.1, natural gas supplies have been curtailed for large users, including electric utilities, and the situation could become much worse if the cold wave that pipped most of the nation list week continues for a sec- ond wee'.. TVTiai happened at the Norec Appliance plant al Efiingham, 111.. COO miles south of Chicago typlL'si. T.ie plan' was forced to shut when its gas sup- ply was cut off lo insure ade- quate fuel supplies for resi- dences, hospitals, schools and o.her hish-prio-iiy On Friday. Js'orge reopened the plant when an emergency supply of propane was brought in from Kansas. But this was only a stopgap measure and continued co'd weather wouJd close the plant again unless more fuel supplies can be lo- cated. Vne hardest-hit area appeared lo be -Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas. About 43 industries in the Jackson. Miss., area including two neighboring counties, were closed, puting more than 40, 000 workers out of jobs. A dozen or more plants around the Hat- tiesburg and Gulf Coast re- gions v.ere dosed and nearly one-half the chicken broiler in- dustry in east central and south Mississippi -was closed down. "We are faced with a real energy shortage here for (he first said Keith Howie, fcad of the uti'ities dins-ion of the Public Service Commission. going to hit hard the devil, because it's going to get into people's pocketbooks.'1 Gerald Bracken, president of M.P.I. Industries E: Jackson, that more than 1.300 work- ers had been laid off since Wed- nesday. M.P.I, operates one of t h e largest industrial plants in Mis- sissippi and is e. maior supply of cabinets for television sets, record players and sewing ma- chines. The troubles in Mississippi stemmed from a complete cur- tailment of natural gas supplies ftr industrial users by the Unit- ed Gas Pipeline Co. It was the first curtailment ever, and i: was blamed on a dangerous drop in pressure because o! cold weather and a frozen supply field in Louisiana. .Vatural gas supplies for some industrial users have cu: bact in some pans of Kentucky and Texas with some plants gelling no gas one day and others rhe next. Even in Los Angeles. Eupa'Jes to intemiptible customers were cut back for 11 days in De- "ember and thus [ar tor five days this year. The Lcthbridqc Herald VOL.
