No Trace Found Or* Two Missing 16-Year Girls A statewide police alert for two 16-year-old W. Stokes St. girls missing from their homes since Monday has failed to locate them insofar as local authorities knew today.

Smoke, Flames Damage Home In Grove Park The kitchen of a Grove Park home sustained extensive damage yesterday afternoon when flames from a pan of grease on a cook stove spread to cabinets nearby. The blaze, reported at 4:14 p.m., was at the home of R. B. Donaldson, 288 Oakwood Cir. Fire Chief W. C. Bray said an occupant, Rick Donaldson, suffered a minor burn on a hand. He said other parts of the house were damaged by smoke. In one other city fire reported since then, Officer J. C. Lewis of the police-fire unit coped with a flooded oil stove at 229 Stewart St. last midnight by unhooking the line at the storage drum. He remained as a precaution until the fuel in the line burned out. There was considerable smoke. The signature of President Harry W. Link this morning made Link-Watson the newest tenant in Ballou Park Shopping Center. A branch store of the 101-year-old firm is slated to open there about April 1, to augment the services already provided customers at the main establishment on Craghead St. in the heart of the city and at the Nor-Dan branch store on the Northside. Looking on are three men vitally concerned with the decision -- Vice President Howard Smart, who will be responsible for the facility's over-all operation; John W. Bates Jr. of Richmond, representing the shopping center's owners in his capacity as president of Harrison and Bates, Inc.; and Terry Ley of J. D. Ley, Inc., local realty agent for the center. The new facility will occupy 3,900 square feet of space adjacent to the center's drug store, and will be larger than the Nor-Dan store. A manager has not yet been selected, reported Smart. The same merchandise available at the downtown location -- appliances, hardware, sports equipment, televisions and housewares ---will be carried at the new store, he noted. In welcoming the new tenant, Bates noted that business at the Ballon Park Shopping Center" has grown steadily in volume, and we have seen a decided increase in the past six months." Full Commercial Operation piedmont Meets Begins At Smith Mountain Smith Mountain Dam in the Appalachian Power Co. Smith Mountain Hydroelectric Devel- ipment on the Roanoke River las gone into commercial operation. All four of the plants generat- ng units, with a capacity of :00,000 kilowatts, are. now producing electricity for Appalach- an's customers. Commercial operation of the units marks an end to construction of the development, except for finishing touches. The dam is located 46 miles downstream from Roanoke, 40 miles northwest of Danville and 25 miles east of Rocky Mount. Full operation follows by two ears the beginning of commercial operation of Leesville Dam, he lower of the two dams hi he pumped storage project, .eesville, with a capacity of 0,000 kilowatts in two units, s located 17 miles downstream rom Smith Mountain Dam, and :s lake covers 3,400 acres. In announcing the milestone oday, Joe P. Gills, Appalachian vice-president and general manager, pointed out that the 0,000-acre Smith Mountain ,ake must still rise almost even feet to reach a normal perating level of elevation 795 eet above sea level. He said lat the extended lack of ram, oupled with the need to re- ease some water at Smith fountain to maintain stream flow below the dam, has pre- ented the lake from rising to .s normal operating level. "Recent snows should help al- eviate this condition," Gills dded, "but this condition will ot affect the operation of the units at Smith Mountain." He ointed out that the level of ic water at the present time is bove the level needed to oper- te the units. 11 What it does mean is that we will not be able to fully use the river flow, depending in stead on the pump back capa^ bilities of the generating units themselves." Gills also assured landowners on the shorelines that op erating the plant while the lake is not quite full will not cause any more fluctuation than will occur when the lake is full. "The lake will fluctuate 1.6 feet over the course of a week either way, during periods of normal operation, and this water will be replaced at nigh and over weekends by pumped storage," Gills said. In pumped storage, water will go from the upper lake through the powerhouse into the lower lake. Part of it wil then go through the powerhouse at the lower dam, an part of it wiH be retained in the lower lake. Then, at nights and on weekends, when demand for electricity is low, units 1 and 5 will be reversed, and wil. puimp waiter back from the lower lake into the upper lake. Electricity used to operate the pumps is produced at Appalachian's c»al-hurning steam- electric generating plants in West Virginia and Virginia. The electricity is transmitted to Smith Mountain from the plants over high-voltage power [hies. Coal required to produce electricity n e e d e d for the pumping o p e r a t i o n s will amount to 230,000 tons annually. Gills said that the major p r o j e c t now remaining at Smith Mountain is construction of the visitors' overlook and recreation areas. Some grading is now being done for these, and Appalachian plans to be- construction of visitors' ·acuities hi the near future. PLEDGE COOPERATION GREENVILLE, S. C.

CAB Standards For Boarding Piedmont Airlines is the only local service airline in the U.S with all of the cities it serves-including Danville--being above the Civil Aeronautics Board's "Use It or Lose It" minimum requirement for passengers boarded. In announcing this today, the company, with headquarters in Winston-Salem, N.C., s t a t e d that the "Use It or Lose It' program, adopted by CAB in 1958, stipulates that each com munity receiving local airline service should enplane at leas five passengers per day. If a community does not measur up to this minimum, the CAB ''may institute formal proceed ings to determine whether serv ice to a city should be discon tinued for lack of use." In ad dition, the airline involved free, and is encouraged, to ask for a suspension of services even hi advance of a Boarc proceeding to terminate the cer tification." Passenger boardings at Dan ville Municipal Airport rose by 13 percent last year to a record 6,218, up 750 over the previous year. In addition, local board- ings hit an all-time high las: December of 685--only the second item that boardings in one month have exceeded 600. Danville's 1965 boardings averaged slightly over 17 persons daily, well above the minimum number set by CAB. Piedmont officials pointed members into the chapter: Leo Zoeler, Larry Van de Visser, Phil Williams, Bob Becraft and Richard Irwin, III. out that achieving the five-passengers-a-day minimum at all xints did not involve any sus- ensions or deletions of service at any community but instead resulted from promotion and advertising of the service offered, plus a minimum of two round-trips per day being offered to each city on Piedmont's 42-station, system. Though we have consolidated services of communities at iingle airports on two occasions ince the "Use It or Lose It" olicy has been in effect, we lave not wanted to delete serv- ce," commented C. G. Brown Jr., Piedmont's vice-president for traffic and sales. "Instead we have attempted to provide a maximum number of flights practical for each community, and we have tried to promote and develop airline service at the local level through advertising." Driver Faces Five Charges In Accident In traffic mishaps yesterday, i Pittsylvania County driver lad multiple charges preferred against him while, in another, a six-year-old girl escaped with only a skinned knee when she ran unto a car.

Daniel Sponsors Bill To Assist State Industry RICHMOND--A loan guaran- ee fund to assist hi financing new and existing industry in Virginia would be established under terms of a bill introduced in the House of Delegates yesterday by W.

Gardner Speaks To Junior Club On Life-Saving An informative talk on the functions of the Danville Life Saving Squad, and first aid wal given by James B. Gardner for the Junior Wednesday Club at its February meeting in the club rooms. In introducing the speaker, Mrs. James C. Moses pointed out that Gardner has been a member of the crew since 1950, and is presently its business manager. In 1952, he became a Red Cross instructor for the standard and advanced courses and is now a special instructor in cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Membership is voluntary, but requirements are high. Organized in 1945, the Danville Squad at present has 33 members and is a member of the Virginia, North Carolina, and International Associations of Rescue Squads. Gardner first spoke on the danger of poisons in the home. As reported by the U.S. Public Health Service, 90 percent of poison cases involve children under five years (60 percent of these are boys). This service also reported that the majority of cases occur in the kitchen and, secondly, in the bedroom. Several precautions may be taken to avoid such accidents: keep all medicines and house- bold cleaners out of reach of children, destroy old medicines, be sure bottles are labeled, be aware of contaminated food, especially in the summertime. En case of a poisoning in the home the quickest and easiest remedy is to dilute with water or to gag the child with soapy- water. A solution of a mixture of charcoal, milk of magnesia, and strong tea should be available in every home as a poison antidote. Attention was called o the poisons of numerous plants such as poison oak, poinsettia leaf, mistletoe berry, each tree leaf, twig of the herry tree, daffodil bulbs, oak eaves and acorns. Some pois- ns affect persons immediate- y, others over a longer period of time. Club members were interested in the demonstration of heart massage and artificial respiration. Points brought out hi mouth - to - mouth resuscitation were to be sure the mouth is free of foreign articles, be sure the shoulders are up and the head is back so the air passage is open, and blow gently into the victims' mouth 12 to 16 times a minute. Gardner noted that hi fires more people die from causes other than burning. Numerous synthetics when burning give off poisonous gases, he added. Gardner then pointed out that the Danville Life Saving Crew is always available upon call and the organization provides an iavaluable service to the citizens of Danville. At the conclusion of his talk, Mrs. J. Randy Stinson Jr., club president, expressed appreciation to Gardner for his time and information. Refreshments were served in the dining room after the meeting. HOLIDAY INN RESTAURANT WBTM's In pleased to InvlU PRICE NEWMAN "Honoree of the Day" to enjoy dinner any tvenln*.
