CAP)—A Soviet scientist writing in a major Russian scientific publication describes how three rivers now flowing north into the Arctic Ocean will be turned southward in a huge power and desert Irrigation project. A. V. Vinter, a member of the soviet Academy of Sciences, also predicted that atomic energy will be used to build canals, tunnels and dams to produce cheap atomic electric power. He also called on Soviet scientists to harness the immense power of comic rays. (Russia's Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky toldi the United Nations in 1949 in one of his peace propaganda speeches that the Russians already were using atom power to cut canals and level mountains. Later the text of his speech was corrected to say that Russia intended to do it). The hydro-electric plan was first described early in 1S49 in a Soviet youth magazine. Now an academician has put his stamp on the project. It calls for turning -the Siberian rivers, the Ob, the Yenisei and the Lena southward, pouring them into an artificial lake in central Siberia nearly as large as the Caspian Sea, and then distributing the water in irrigation can ah over the North Kazakh Desert. The waters finally would flow in to the Caspian and Aral Seas. It was talcl that the size of Ihi dams, power stations and canals involved has never been achieved he- fore in the world. Vinter also wivte that Russia soon will begin mass production of gas turbine installations for underground gasification of coal. Air Conditioned By Refrigeration "Your Coniimmily Center" MANILA, ARK.
