* WED., AUGUST 22, 1962, Lokc Charles American Press p| f" I 4% I I I I Power Exchange Scheduled By TVA Utility Companies ' • •- HIGH VOLTAGE LINE — Tht htavy lint on ihe above map shows the exlra high voltage line a group of 11 inveiior-owned electric companies in an eight-stale area proposed to build, subject to Federal Power Commission approval, to permit exchange of power with TVA to take advantage of different "peaking" conditions. Agreement involving the interchange of 1,500.000 kilowatts of electric power has been reached by a .croup of eleven electric utilities of the Southwest, and the Tennessee Valley Authority, Gulf States Utilities Company announced today. Gulf States is a member of the group which proposed the unique exchange arrangement about a year ago. It must be approved by the Federal Power Commission to become effective in 1965 as planned. Gulf States' share of the exchange would be 215,000 kilowatts. The companies involved, in addition to the Gulf States Utilities Company, arc Mississippi Power and Light, Arkansas Power and Light, Empire District Electric, Kansas Gas and Electric, Southwestern Electric Power, Louisiana Power and Light, Central Louisiana Electric. New Orleans Public Service. Oklahoma Gas and Electric, and Public Service Company of Oklahoma. The exchange will bring about the construction by the companies of a giant 1,000 mile, extra-high voltage electric transmission network costing an estimated $100 million, linking the electric sys- tems in Louisiana, Texa*. Arkansas, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Kansas and Missouri. The companies involved have been interconnected with high voltage lines for many years, but the proposed additional lines will be of the highest capacity ever i constructed in the Southwest. i TVA and the investor-o w n e d power group face their heaviest demands for electricity at different seasons of the year.

Their winter surplus , power will be used to help meet 1 TVA's peak load. , In summer when the compa- jnies' loads are highest—due pri- j marily to air conditioning — they | will get power in turn from TVA's 1 summer surplus. | Gulf States is joining with the investor-owned group in conducting engineering studies which will j result in the construction of trans- i mission lines of 345,000 volts or ! higher. The extra-high voltage lines will extend southward from West Point. Mississippi, through ; Jackson, Mississippi and Baton Rouge to New Orleans, with an; other line to Scott, near Lafayette. Other extra high voltage lines will extend westward from Memphis through Little Rock and ; Fort Smith. Ark., to Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Okla. Gulf Stales will invest approximately $IB million for the trans- , mission facilities in the company's service area. PARTY FETSS CAST REMOVAL ATLANTIC.

Highway Across Canada Comp/efed Hardy Professor Hikes 300 Miles Alone in Arctic ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Hardy Alaskans are acclaiming the feat of a Swedish professor who hiked 300 miles alone above the Arctic Circle in a successful challenge of the wilderness. The hiker, Dr. Rune Lindgren, 42, rested at the community of Arctic Village, 126 miles north of Ft. Yukon, after walking from his demarcation point on the Arctic Ocean. Lindgren, visiting professor from Sweden at Johns Hopkins j University, started the trip July i 19 and made it through the rugged country in four weeks. Word of his safe arrival at Arctic Village .was relayed Monday from Ft. Yukon. OTTAWA.

The final sector of the billion- dollar road has lieon marked as completed, but improvement of certain parts continues. The goal was to link ail 10 provinces for the fir.-l time by a paved highway built to high standards and open all year.

Some parts of the Rogers Pas* construction cost $2 million A mile, partly because of the elaborate avalanche control devices necessary to keep the road open in winter. In Glacier National Park, the average snowfall is more than 28 feet a year. Steel shelters cover some parts of the road. Howitzer emplacements stand ready to avert big slides by triggering small, controlled avalanches.
