PAGE six BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) NEWS TVKSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1955 Atom City Sparks New Age in Churches By BOB LOEFFELBEIN NBA Special Correspondent RICHLAND, Wash. — (NEA) — In the City of Richland, where they make the stuff for atomic bombs, a step has been taken in the field of religion that is, if not atomic, at least innovationary. Ministerial associations have labored long to bring the churches together since each has a like faith, only offering slightly different paths. While competition still goes on between the various denominations, continuing to puzzle historians of American religion, here in Kichland the step has already been taken that is bringing all ministers, churches and congregations together This step which is solidifying the churches to spread the Gospel on an" "all for one; one for all" basis, is called "the United Protestant Churches of Richlnnd." It is composed of 11 non-liturgical churches (those which have no set form of worship or prayers set forth in a prayer book ov missal i banded together to brine a more efficient and effective means for worship to this community of atomic scien- for •>5_, wa- ' Yet the cooperating churches have not lost their individuality, for each ol the United Protestant churches is only sponsored by a cp- operatine denomination, while still maintaining close ties with its mother denomination.

Norway-Once 'Electric-Rich' How Facing Power Shortage OSLO Wi—Norway, long with a surplus of hydroelectric power, has run into a shortage. Housewives are irate over the necessity of using oil stoves to cook—or even to keep warm. The Norwegian economy to a very B reat degree is dependent on electric power. Cooking with electricity is much more common in Norway than in most countries. Gas is'used hardly at all. New apartment buildings use electricity for heating. Had Surplus Before World War II. Norway had a surplus of electric power. Before and after the war the government campaigned to make people use electricity. Now a power shortage is becoming permanent, white postwar buying power has led Norwegians to buy ever more electric stoves, water heaters, refrigerators and wash- Ing machines. An inter-mnnicipal power authority distributes power to various areas according to need. Unfortunately this inter-municipal authority has sold considerably more power than it can deliver. To keep vital industry going, power consumption has been cut 25 per cent. Street lighting has been reduced or abandoned entirely. A brownout has been followed by a complete general switchoff at least two hours every night, vital industry excepted. Buy Oil Stoves To keep warm, Norwegians are buying oil stoves. To cook their meals, many have to buy small camp stoves. The government has been forced to liberate half a million kroner about $72,000 in hard currency for the import of stoves—mainly from Great Britain and Sweden. The only Norwegian manufacturer of oil stoves has sold nls production tor a half year in the future.
