Villiamstown, TqwerCity To Have Two Blackouts Williamstown in upper Dauphin County will have a blackout test next Wednesday night, with the rest of the Harrisburg area, and so will Tower City, which adjoins Williamstown, but is in Schuylkill County. When Schuylkill County haa its blackout test Monday night, May 25. Williamstown also will join. Thus the two boroughs will have more such tests than the average town. The plan has been adopted because the street lighting systems of the adjoining towns are on the same electric switch, located at the sub-station in Williamstown, and one town cannot have a blackout without the other. Defense groups say it would be costly to relocate the switch and that war restric tions probably wouldn't release enough wire for such an under taking.
