POWER FAILURE STOPS THE CLOCK Television screens went blank, refrigerators stopped working and hands on electric clocks stood still for 31 minutes Wednesday night as power failed at three substations. Electricity came back on at 7:30 in time for the late early show. Cause of the failure was trou ble in the cable at Shell Oil Co. which feeds power to the sub stations on Brookside, S. Rodg ers and Fosterburg. Exact cause was unknown but restoring power was only a matter of an Union Electric Co. em- ploye driving to Shell to pull a switch that bypassed the trouble. Hundreds of homes and scores of businesses were affected by the failure which was not long enough to cause any decided inconvenience.
