twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Federal Funds Sought To Build Atomic Plant By ARNOLD SAWISLAK United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON (UP) — Northern States Power Co., Minneapolis, is seeking seven minion dollars worth of help from Ihe • government to build ,its proposed atomic power reactor. Earl Ewald, Northern States' vice president for operations, appeared before a joint congressional atomic energy subcommittee Tuesday to give the details of his firm's 25-million-dollar project. R.M. Casper, Milwaukee, nuclear division manager for Allis-Chalmers Manufacturing Co., and C.B. Graham, chie'f engineer of ttie division, also appeared, Al!is-Chai- mers will build the Northern States reactor. Ewald said the project's total cost, including excess operating expenses during the first five years o£ experimental operation, would total about $29,800,000. He estimated actual construction costs at 25 million dollars. Except for the seven-million- dollar helping hand sought from the Atomic Energy Commission, and about $3,650,000 to be con- tribuled to the project by 10 utilities in Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Missouri, the reactor is to be financed by NSP, Ewald said. He said the government . assistance sought would include one million dollars for waived nuclear fuel use charges; $500,000 for AKC staff and laboratory services; and $5,500.000 in funds for research and development. Casper said the proposed reactor would be an improvement on the experimental boiling water reactor his firm had helped build for Argonne National Laboratory'at Chicago recently. The Northern States reactor, he said, would include a new type of water recirculation that will produce "more power out of a given size of reactors," and a new type of power control to the j device. Both men said present plans call for putting the reactor into operation before June 30, 1962, and emphasized that approval of plans by the AEC and other, clearances had to be received quickly in order to meet the schedufe. Ewald said the company submitted its plans to the AEC May 15 and has had one meeting since then, "but we have not yet started actual contract negotiations." Jn response to a question by Kep. Chet Holifield (D-Calif.l, Ewald said he estimated cost' of power to be produced by the reactor would be slightly higher than conventionally generated electricity in the western part of the Northern States system, where the reactor will be located. He did not pinpoint the location. Most persons can read uninterruptedly for six hours without suffering eye strain or fatigue. Feqr Wealthy Farmer Slain and Buried in Automobile in Mine CANTON, 111. (UP)—A search for missing Fay Rawley, a wealthy Fulton County farmer was still a big question mark today. Boggy ground and drizzling rain held up drilling operations atop the workings of the key coal mine at I nearby Summum; under which Fulton County Sheriff Virgil Ball hopes to find Rawley's missing automobile and the missing man's body. The drilling began Tuesday when drill operators put down dozens of 3-inch holes to a 72'[oot depth in a 40 by 50 feet area. At one point the drill did bring up a .particle of metal. The drilling area' had been outlined by a magnetometer, which indicated metal buried beneath the strip mine workings. Mine officials said they knew of no reason, why metal should be in the area. At Springfield, James Christensen, chief of the state Criminal Investigation and Identification Bureau, said the particle brought up by the drill was identified as metal. "We are still trying to determine if it came from an automobile," he said. Hawley was last seen with his automobile near the strip mine workings 3% years ago. Authorities theorize that he may. have been murdered and both he and his car pushed into the open mine cut and covered with the "spoil" from a giant mine shovel. Motorist Sentenced.
