Friday, March 30, 1973 MISSISSIPPI OUTLOOK by Paul Pittman by Charles Dunagin Rmzmber the summer of 1971 ,hen Bill Waller w.as talking about sweeping out the Capitol Street Gang? Just who they were was sort of vague at times, but the idea caught on, and W.aller was swept into the governor's office in an election in which he was a de- cided underdog until the final few days before the balloting.

It will take ap- pointments like these to make the Mississippi Economic Devel- programs. opment Corp. work. Purpose of the corporation is to assist in establishing new business enterprises in the state by assisting with financing.
