.EXPANSION PLANNED City's Electrical Load Increases 8% Annually Long-rang* expansion plans of the Austin Utilities Dept. include another generator and boiler for possible operation by 1081, a 15,000-volt loop for the electric distribution system, a fifth well, pos- slblv in Southgate Addition, and another substation in the Ellis Junior High School area. The need for still another generator aftd boiler is based on load Increase over the years and the upward trend in use of electricity, Harold Lamon, utilities superintendent, explained. The electrical load has increased close to eight per cent a year Over the past years with no indication that the trend is slackening off, he said. Homes Use More Current The increasing number of television sets, the use of more and man household appliances in addition to the Increasing city population are the main factors in these increases, Lamon noted. Just completed is a new $1 million boiler, now in operation, and in full use during peak load periods. Another major project to get under way next year is an overhead loop distribution electrical system in addition to the present under ground cables. Present plans call for stringing lines from the Ellis and Neveln • substation northwest to Oak street and on the north side of the Belt Line, and to complete the line on the south side at a future date. Feed Additional Substations The overhead lines would be used to feed additional substations in outlying areas in the future rather than use of the underground connections, Lamon said. Under the present distribution system, the plant could run into a bushel of trouble due to faulty underground cable. Such a problem arose last year when t h e cable to Geo. A. Hormel & Co. went out of comrtilssion, Lamon said. Crews had to run overhead lines from the utilities plant to the Hormel company for emergency power. Still another well, Austin's fifth in as many years, will be needed in the Southgate Addition should the area build up as expected with the new school under construction. Four wells have been completed with three in full operation: Brownsdale, Bel Air and El- You'll Find Everything M From Apples to Zippers at... STERLING SHOPPING CENTER 11s avenue. The fourth well a South River street will be in op eration by Spring with crews soot to install a pump delayed because of striking workers at the pump manufacturing firm. An additional substation in the Ellis area will be a necessity soon with the tremendous increase in building in the area, Lamon said The substation would insure effi cient electrical distribution.

Second GOALS OF RUSSIA'S 7 YEAR PLAN U.S. 1958 production represents 100% ESTIMATED 1958 RUSSIAN PRODUCTION am»«. 1965 GOAL INEA KHRUSHCHEV'S BIGGEST GAMBLE — Following up on his recent "declaration of economic war" on the United States, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev has announced an ambitious seven-year (1959-1965) plan for Russia. Blueprinting an overall 80 per cent growth in industrial production, the Red leader promises the highest standard of living in the world for Russians by 1970. Western observers call it his biggest gamble for prestige and power since taking over the reins of govern- men. Newschart above translates Russia's present production in certain commodities, along with 1965 goals, into percentages of current U.S. production 1 of the same items. It reveals that on a pound-for-pound, ton-for-ton, kilowatt- for-kilowatt, unit-for-unif basis, Russia must shoot much higher In most cases to match this country — even if U.S. were to stand still for seven years.
