Our Doily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor '. Alex. H. Washburn Murfreesboro Dam . New Source of Cheap Power George Douthit, writing in Sunday's Arkansas Democrat, discloses that the Narrows dam now "under construction near Murfreesboro will not only afford flood protection but will also develop electric power. While touring the big construction job with J. C. Shewmakc, resident engineer for the Vicksburg office of the U. S. Engineers, Mr. Douthit was informed that the opening electrical installation will have an output of 17.000 KWH, to be built up eventually to 25,500 KWH. In the beginning there will ffa bo two turbine-generators of 8,500 .'""KWH capacity each, with a third to be added. The government has made no decision as yet on how the power will be disposed of, the Democrat writer continues. I believe this is the first general publication of the facts of Murfreesboro's hydro-electric power— at least it's new to me. And the story is of tremendous importance to Hope and southwest Arkansas. Hydro-power is cheap power— and cheap power is a vital commodity ,y regardless what form it takes, whether derived from coal, oil, or water. The lay public is slow to apnrc- ciatc complex economic tides. But it can understand something as obvious as the discovery of a now oil field. Well, electric power from the Murfreesboro dam is just as effective, from an industrial standpoint, as finding a new oil field—perhaps more so. Transmission lines will make Murfreesboro hydro-power available nver a wide area, particularly •if- in Hope, about 50 miles away, i If we ever expect to get on an interconnected power line for industrial purposes this may be the ticket we're looking for. The City of Hope and Hope Chamber of Commerce should ; from now on keep a standing committee to follow events as the Narprws dam approaches completion. We have only to look at, the Piedmont section "of the Carolines, and the region of the Tennessee Valley Authority, to realize ; what tho impact of hydro-power * means in the development of industries that are large users of electricity. The story isn't entirely favorable, however. I might as well tell- you that year-round power isn't usually obtainable from the river valleys of Arkansas—- their storage capacities are too limited to furnish maximum power output through the dry season. On this point I am quoting from memory the authentic reports of government surveys, Arkansas Power & Light Co. engineers. and others. • , The great trial horse for hydropower in Arkansas is, of course, the series of dams that. the A.P. & L. has built on the Ouachita river near Hot Springs. The Rommel dam was constructed first, between Malvern and Hot' Springs, but the fluctuation of the water level in Lake Catherine (formed by Remmel darn) was so great that it then became necessary to build Carpenter dam, forming Lake Hamilton. The situation at Hot Springs now is that tho water level of the lower lake. Catherine, is stabilized for efficient power produc- tibn-rbut the upper lake, Hamil- 'ton, fluctuates so badly that a .third dam is being constructed 'still farther up the river at ; Blakely Mountain. The eventual 'picture is of . two efficient generating plants drawing water from, the lower lakes while the topmost lake acts as a reservoir to keep their water levels more or less constant. As the only dam on the Little Missouri river, therefore, the Narrows reservoir and generating plant represents a mere beginning—with the probability thati the power output will be seasonal. But it is a beginning—an important beginning. For it offers an opportunity to feed electricity at rocki-bottom prices into the lines of existing plants, setting up an industrial power network for the fu'ture of the section where all of us live.

COUNTESS TOLSTOY ('Before her dramatic escape from the Russian Consulate, when she leaped to avoid return to the Soviet, Mrs. Oksana Kasenkina found haven for a few days in the Tolstoy Foundation's Reed Farm outside Nyack, N. Y., a refuge for those Russians fed up with life under Stalin's totalitarian government. Founder and president of the foundation is the Countess Alexandra Tolstoy, daughter of the immortal novelist, Leo Tolstoy. She was Mrs. Kasenkina's friend during her brief retreat at Reed Farm and she was the first one permitted at the injured school teacher's bedside after the desperate leap that promptly became the outstanding news story of the year. Here is Countess Tolstoy's urgent plea that Americans— and people the world over- read the coming revelations, installment by installment, as Mrs. Kasenkina tells of one "small person's' experiences under the harsh rule of the Red dictatorship.)

DYNAN Paris, Sept. 27 —(/I 1 )—The west-] crn powers sent the Berlin crisis .0 the Security Council today and British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bavin immediately expressed fear it might wreck the United Nations. In Berlin, a Russian-controlled newspaper echoed his words, saying that if the Western powers force a U.N. debate on Berlin "a wedge will be driven into the U. N. which may pplit the entire world organization." If such a thing should come to pass and if the "black fury" of atomic war should follow, Bevin told the United Nations Assembly, the fault would be Russia's and Russia's alone. But, he added: "It is better to have our difficulties now than to live in a fool's paradise."

This was a slap at the Russians, vho have been seeking to over- hrovv the legally-elected government and achieve full Communist control of the city. The Socialist press claimed to- lay the Russians are throwing housands of new victims into concentration camps in eastern Ger- nany's intensified purge of anti- Communists. The official "Sozial Demokral" described what it called "trans- sorts of misery" headed for Buch- enwalk, the former Nazi concen- ration camp in Thuringia. The newspaper djescribed one iueh railroad transport of 40 heavily-guarded freight cars which it claimed was crowded to suffocation with Germans being sent to confinement. The train was escorted by heavily armed Soviet soldiers outfitted with search lights.
