No. I IDAHO BAKING EATING OR COOKING . · WASHINGTON, Nov. 3. (}--An army description of the Suiho power dam on the Korean-Manchurian border underlined today why Communist troops are defending it fiercely. A spokesman for the army told reporters at the Pentagon that this Japanese-built darn has a power capacity of 700','000 kilowatts. For comparison, this Is about two-thirds that of the Hoover -darn on .the Colorado river", Asked what the Intention of United Nations 'forces is concern. Ing the huge Suiho power project, In casa-U. N, troops reach the Korean side of it, the' spokesman laid he does not know.. Neither would he ..discuss the ·trategic value of Suiho and-its allied questions. Neverthless, the Importance Is obvious. .If it remains entirely In Communist hands, its pov/er can be denied to the non-Communist part of Korea. On the .other hand, ·hould United Nations forces reach the Korean part of the power · project, and turn it over to the South Koreans, this would give non-Communists a hand in control of .the power flow both to Korea «hd Communist Manchuria. The Suiho system, set up tjy the Japanese when they controlled Korea, has a present total capacity estimated at around 935,OpD kilo- tvattE, of which about 450,000 is- how being used. This power has been going to both Korea and Manchuria. The system involves a total of seven dams now operation- ·1 or projected.-The largest is at 'Suiho, about 75 .miles from the tnouth of the Yalu river. The dam there is; 328 feet high and 2.7SS feet. long. It forms' a.' reservoir 40 miles long. Another,dam, the Mamochin, is entirely on the Manchurian side of the border. It has a power capacity of 235,000 kilowatts. ELDER W. G.
