Valley His Latest By HERBERT FLUMMEH rASHINGTON Dec 6 George Norris of Nebraska who perhaps has seen more than the average mans share of dreams come true within the past few months is about to embark on an other ambitious venture He wants set up in the Mis souri valley a federal authority which will seek to do for that section of the na tion what the Tennessee Valley au thority has in mind for the vast re gion around Muscle Shoals in the south The 72 year old senator denies there is anything new about his pro posal He prefers rather to look upon it as another part of a nation al project he has championed for years With the advent of the new dear administration Norris saw his dream of a great social and eco nomic experiment in the Tennessee valley realized For years he battled against the stiffest and most stubborn opposi tion to bring Muscle Shoals under federal operation Start of Series Norris regards the Tennessee val ley project as the first of a series of like projects which
