"Libby is second only to Grand Coulee in its potential power production. . . . It is very much better tban the proposed Hells Canyon Dam (txa the Snake River between • Oregon and Idaho) and less expensive," McKay said. He also reaffirmed an earlier statement that federal power projects ate not "for sale." ?We will keep tbem as they are and build some more." he said. posed projects which he said the administration's power partnership program would make possible. These included Cougar Dam on the south fork of the McKenzie River; Green Peter on the Santiam River, both in Oregon, and Priest Rapids D§m, on the Columbia River in Washington.

Leads Sought It turns up leads> though. There have been a dozen already— checked out as fruitless, but still leads—and this is only the fourth day of the long project. Twenty to thirty boys can be processed a day. and there are more than two thousand in the city's three high schools. Josephson says it's the largest such test in the history of crime detection., Josephson is the polygraph expert fresh from four years of service as an expert with the Army's Criminal Investigation Division in the Far East. He was hired last month to head the new La Crosse City-County Crime Laboratory. "The tests have renewed the interest of the public." he said. "We may finally get a tip. a fragment of information, that someone didn't think was important back when the case was hot. One of those will lead us to the answer." The mass polygraph quiz is only the latest turn in a long course of intense police work since last Oct. 24. when Dr. Richard Hartley's daughter was taken from the home of Prof. Viggo Rassmussen, a fellow faculty member at La Corsse State College. 'The only real clues have been several separate finds of bloodstained clothing belonging to the girl and to the man who took her, and a pair of large tennis shoes matching tracks left by the abductor. The duration and intensity of the search could have cost enough to bankrupt !he county, except for the way local law enforcement officials organized it, Bosshard said. Detective Capt. Leo Hihm was assigned to the case as coordinator. City police, sheriff's officers and the prosecutor's staff joined in whenever they were needed. Biggest item ha* been telephone calls and travel expenses running down tips, Bosshard said, and added that these likely wouldn't run much more than $1.000. It would HOW'S IT SOUND.

(>P)—A study of teeth among Santa Fe school children showed a large number of cases of "bobby pin notch." This is a wearing down of irre- placable tooth enamel by opening bobby pins with the teeth. Dr. David Strlffler, public health dental director, said "an amazin number" of cases of notches in the front teeth were found in the survey, especially among junior high school girls. He urged girls to find some other means of opening bobby pins. OKLAHOMA CIT YMPI — Easy. | Dad, don't rush for the doctor every time Junior's temperature zips above the standard 98.6. j He may have nothing more than •a case of "bubble gum fever." j yet, it may be a case of "school fever," once a standard ijoke among small fry, and now a I scientific fact. The truth is, explains Dr. Fred M. Taylor, Houston, Tex., pediatrician, lots of things may bring junior's temperature to a boil—not just some pesky bug. Taylor addressed some 500 Oklahoma doctors yesterday at the State Medical Assn. convention. "Some child may be having trouble getting along with his teacher or playmates," Dr. Taylor explained. "This emotional upset may cause his temperature to rise. TM psychiatrists refer to this as school fever." Even chewing can make junior's temperature rise above the 98.6 mark. He said a perfectly normal child may have a temperaiure of 100 or 101 degrees "just from exercise itself." That includes bubble gum chewing. The thing to do, Dr. Taylor ad- | vised, is not to rear a child by j relying on the thermometer to tell when danger is at hand. "Too often they feel the tem- perature should be stuck at that little red arrow. It is normal to vary. A child may go for weeks or months with an afternoon elevation of temperature. Sure it is up. But that's the way you keep warm—by exercise. Let the child rest 30 to 45 minutes and then take his temperature."
