Working in sweltering heat just as they did in the biting cold of two winters, Ontario Hydro Electric Commission crews have poured 570,000 cubic yards of concrete well over half of the 900,000 needed for the projects three dams. At the main dam, stretching 2.400 feet over three channels of the Ottawa, two of the channels have been closed and work on closing the third, the Ontario one is well under way.

Bordeleau Traffic Still Tangled to- New Heat Wave On Wav Here Ottawa and the immediate dis trict is rapidly recovering from the devastating punches of yesterday's cyclonic, 50-mile-an-hour wind and rain storm which created thousands of dollars damage in Orleans,. Britannia and several sections of the Capital during its two-hour fury in late afternoon. In temperatures fast dropping to the forecast high of 78 degrees, workmen from the Ottawa Hydro, the Ottawa Electric and the Bell Telephone companies, combined with a squad of men from the Are alarm division of the Ottawa fire department, to clear tangled wires on Laurier avenue east at Marl boro, ripped from poles and metal standards when a giant elm crash ed across them late yesterday afternoon.

Stringing New Cable A 4,000 volt electric cable, also severed by the falling tree, has been cut off at a junction point by electric company repairmen and the stringing of a new cable has already begun. Two power poles ripped from their beds by the weight of the gigantic tree straining and pulling on wires and cables, have been jacked into a firm position until new poles have been set in their places. ThU latter operation is expected to be finished late this afternoon.- At Orleans, the Holy Rosary Novitiate and Scholasticate which also fell victim to the wind when its roof was ripped away, is being studied by church officials who wish to institute repairs as soon (See "Traffic", Patre 12, Col. 4) Can Supply Uranium By The Associated Press WASHINGTON Colorado's uranium deposits are ample to sup ply the vast atomic energy program of the United States Senator Eugene Milliken (Rep. Colo.) said today. Similar assurance came from Senator Edwin C. Johnson (Dem. Colo.), who said there is a "tremendous amount of uranium" in the Colorado plateau country. Both senators are members of the Senate-House of Representatives atomic energy committee. They spoke out separately as the United States prepared to enter into "exploratory conversations" with Britain and Canada on a long-range program of collaboration in raw materials supplies and exchange of atomic information. ' "I have no fear that we cannot secure uranium to operate our atomic energy plants," Milliken told a reporter. ; "Given proper price incentives and under effective organization, our domestic supplies available from the Colorado plateau, the surface of which has hardly been touched, will supply a very substantial amount of our needs. And there are other reassuring factors which I am not at liberty to discuss." Noted British Conductor Has Become Disc Jockey By Reuters New? Agency LONDON Sir Thomas Beecham, British conductor famous for his caustic wit as weU as for his musicianship, has turned "disc jockey" to earn dollars for Britain. He is recording commentaries in a London studio on a series called "Talks About Music" of 26 one-hour programs which will be broadcast from New York in the fall. The records will also be broad- cast in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa probably next spring. Sir Thomas, 70, says he "ad libs to my heart's content" on every conceivable aspect of music except jazz. "I talk about every conceivable subject too except politics," he added. Each program, consists of ap- proximately one quarter of an hour "X ' i' i MURPHY SUCCESSOR? Rep.

Search For Dead War Graves Units Working By Frank Swanson Citizen Parliamentary Writer Four years after the end of the Second World War, the quest for 541 Canadian servicemen listed as "missing, presumed dead," is still under way. War graves registration units of the RCAF are operating in Europe, largely in the Russian-occupied zone of Germany, and in the Far East and other countries where Canadians were engaged in battle. Similar units in the army functioned during the war and for some time afterwards but have been disbanded. The air force units, while mainly concerned with air force personnel, are in contact with other branches of the service about identification of bodies. The air force units were established during the war to locate airmen who had been -reported missing, to identify the graves of Canadian pilots and to transfer the graves of Canadian airmen from isolated areas to burial grounds in allied countries. 541 On List The 541 servicemen whose bodies are still to be found include 36 officers and 506 other ranks. All three branches of the service are represented. This figure takes in all "missing, presumed dead" personnel with the exception of those who served at Hong Kong. About 100 are listed as missing in that island. The work of the RCAF identification and registration units in Europe is virtually completed, defence headquarters reported today, except for the Russian-occupied zone of Germany. The units are based in Berlin and each time they enter the zone, special permission must be obtained from Soviet occupation authorities. This has slowed up the work.

Granted Only In Ottawa ACSC Makes Letter Public Br Don Brown Evtnlnj Citizen Staff Writer Failure of the federal govern- jment to grant the Monday holiday j known as Civic Holiday to civil 'servants employed outside of Ot- jtawa has been stronsly protested iby the Amalgamated Civil Ser- vants of Canada in a letter to Hon. Gordon Bradley, secretary of state. Fred Knowles. national secretary-treasurer of the organization, made the contents of the letter public today. Must Stay On Jobs It claims that the Civic holiday has been granted only to civil servants in Ottawa, while the greater majority of CS employes in all sections of Canada must remain on their jobs on Monday as usual." Mr. Knowles stated in his letter that his organization understands that authority has been given by the government to grant to the civil servants of Ottawa the Civic holiday but has not granted or made provisions for the extension of this privilege to civil servants employed in cities which also celebrate the Civic holiday on that date, or at some other date. "We have been instructed to very strongly protest the holiday provisions being restricted to the employes in the city of Ottawa, in view of the fact that through - i out the province of Ontario. as well as in the city of Winnipeg, the first Monday in August is generally observed as Civic day," his letter read. Mr. Knowles claimed that there is no valid reason why the CS in Ottawa should be granted privi-(See "Holiday", Page 12, Col. 4 Consulate Besieged By The Associated Press SHANGHAI - The United States consulate was besieged again today by about 150 former Shanghai employes of the U.S. Navy. The moo, .like the one yesterday, demanded aggregate bZ pay and severance allowance equal to 6!2 months pay. It was made up of Chinese mostly, but there was a sprinkling of Indians and White Russians. Consulate members were not permitted to leave the building. These included acting consul-general Walter McConaughy. naval attache Cmdr. Morgan Slay-ton and administrative attache Reuben Thomas. Others were permitted to come and go but only essential personnel reported for work today lest a general lock-in developed. Thirteen staff members remained in the building last night.
