£ WED., AUGUST 22, 1962, lafct Charl« American tesi ft P> I 4* I I I I Power Exchange Scheduled By TVA Utility Companies Agreement involving the interchange of 1,500,000 kilowatts of electric power has been reached by a group 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, are 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. Texas, 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 constructed in the Southwest. TVA and the investor-o w n e d power group face their heaviest demands for electricity at different seasons of the year.

Because of electric heating, TVA faces its annual peak load in the winter, at a time when the companies have generating capacity to spare. Their winter surplus power will be used to help meet TVA's peak load. In summer when the companies' loads are highest—due primarily to air conditioning — they will get power in turn from TVA's summer surplus. Gulf States is joining with the investor-owned group in conducting engineering studies which will result in the construction of transmission 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 another 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 Slates will invest approximately $16 million for the transmission facilities in the company's service area. PARTY F£TK CAST REMOVAL ATLANTIC. Iowa (AP) Mrs. Wayne Camblin of Atlantic, who had been in a neck-to- hips cast for some weeks because of a broken back, wanted to make sure her doctor would remember the date he promised the cast would be removed. So she sent him a formal invitation to a "coming out" party on the promised date. He accepted. Highway Across" 1 Canada Completed 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, 125 miles north of Ft. Yukon, after walking from his demarcation point on the Arctic Ocean. Lindgren, visiting professor from Sweden at Johns Hopkins University, started the trip July 19 and made it through the rugged } country in four weeks. Word of jhis safe arrival at Arctic Village! was relayed Monday from Ft. j Yukon. ' OTTAWA, Ont. (AP)-The newly completed Trans-Canada Highway, stretching 5.000 miles from Newfoundland to the Pacific Ocean, will be opened officially by Prime Minister John Diefenhaker Sept. 3. The corcmnny at Rogers Pass, high in the Glacier National Park section of British Columbia, will mark the fulfillment of a national riream held since the country was first spanned by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885. For decades, Canadians who wanted to motor coast to coast traveled part of the way through the United Stales. The final sector of the billion- dollar road has been marked as completed, but improvement of certain parts continues. The goal was to link all 10 provinces for the first time by a paved highway built to high standards and open all year. Previously some sections were gravel and some, especially in the Rock- ies, were closed during the winter months. The most difficult part of the construction project was the 27 miles through Rogers Pass. This cuts 100 miles off the previous route around the Big Bend of the Columbia River, ending what was known as the world's longest detour. Some parts of the Rogers Pass 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.

Mystery Sea Serpent Just A Sturgeon NEW YORK (API-Officials at the Aquarium say there is nothing fishy about that strange creature washed up on the shore near i Freeport, on Long Island — or,' rather, there is everything fishy about it. It's just a plain sea sturgeon. | The creature's partly decomposed, furry, seven-foot carcass was found on the Atlantic beach; over the weekend. The Aquarium i at Coney Island was at first puzzled by the strange anatomy. But Aquarium director Christopher Coales said Monday that "from what remains of it. we've determined that it was a sea sturgeon." "It was a fairly large one," Coates added, "but they're common enough around here not to be considered rare." ROACHES..
