PAGE TWO BLYTHETILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MARCH 10, 195fi St. Lawrence Seaway Construction Poses Problem for Canada By JOHN LeBLA.NC Canadian Press Writer MORRISBURG, Ont. (AP) — Construction of the St. Lawrence seaway means the displacing of about 6,000 Canadians whose lives and livelihoods are tied to eight communities fronting the international section of the river. Most of the villagers have generations-old roots in these communities. The problem is to get them —and their homes where possible- shifted with the lensl jolt to human values. It's the biggest job. of its kind ever undertaken in Canada. 40 Mile Lake Damming of the river to create a hydroelectric pool will produce a 40-mile lake between Ontario and New York state. The waters will drown out seven Canadian communities. Another. Morrisburg, will lose about a third of its land area, and 1,250 of its 1,886 population must move. One of, the big problems: How is the owner of a home 50 years or older to be compensated? Many of the older structures suit their occupants fine but would go beg- Eine on the current market. Gary Crosby Has New Job HOLLTWOOD UP) — Gary Crosby's got a new job. He starts out as Tennessee Ernie's radio sidekick. From there he'll go to a network solo show, according to CBS authorities, who disclosed yesterday that Gary had signed an exclusive radio and television contract with CBS. His TV chores will consist of guest spots on network shows. Gary, Bing's " oldest son, quit Stanford University to go into show business. He's 21. Hasty Burglars Overlook Cash SHAWNEE, Okla. W)—On Jan. n, burglars sneaked a cash register out of a downtown shop but, finding only a few paltry pennies, dumped it on the shore of nearby Lake Shawnee. Yesterday, two youngsters found the register .and, toying with it, discovered an envelope containing $360 In a secret compartment. The money was returned to the owner. The legislation under which the Ontario Hydroelectric Power Commission operates calls for payment on the basis of fair market value plus an amount—unspecified—for "forceful taking." "What we want," said youthful Reeve (Mayor) George Beavers of Morrisburg, "is to get homes replaced with the same facilities without its costing the owners money. Market Value Plus "Hydro tells us that the formula is market value plus something. But market values have been depressed here for many years, and largely on account of uncertainty over whether the community will go on existing as a result of the jeaway. It isn't fair to base a price on sales prospects under those conditions." He pointed out the window: "That old home is all the stake they've got. It's probably worth 36,000 under values here, but it would cost 510,000 to replace at present costs." On the other side of the border the New York State Power Authority will re-establish relatively few- displaced persons. But Ontario Hydro and the New York authority will divide equally the over-all cost of all the re-establishment, estimated unofficially at 65 to 70 million dollars on the Canadian side and perhaps 35 millions on the U.S. frontage.
