Valley Power
Prospects Good
Albany, March 28 Signing
of new contracts between the
Bonneville power administra
tion and Mountain States Power
company has assured substan
tial increases in electric power
connections to serve the Wil
lamette valley M.S. P. Co., sys
tem, it is revealed by Z. E.
Merrill, company president.
The new contracts, Merrill
said, will provide for an inter
connection giving additional
capacity here to take power
from Bonneville, through whose
system also northwest power
pool energy is also transmitted
here, but he warned that the
added connection does not mean
the power shortage is over, for
generating capacity in the Pa
cific northwest is expected to
be deficient during seasonal low
water periods for several years.
At present time the total firm
power takings from the Bonne
ville administration system are
approximately 26,000 kilowatts,
President Merrill explained.
Of this amount, a recently
signed contract with Bonneville
provides the company 11,000
kilowatts of firm power. This
power is the same amount
the company received from the
administration in 1948, said
The remaning 15,000 kilo
watts of firm power was pre
viously contracted with Bonne
ville Power Administration to
be supplied to the Corvallis-In-
dependence-Dallas area. The to
tal amount of power now con
tracted from Bonneville Is equal
to the total load of the company
in the Willamette valley in 1944,
Merrill stated.
As a companion contract, to
the Bonneville firm power con
tract of 11,000 kilowatts, Moun
tain States company has also
renewed its agreements with
rhe northwest power pool. ,
In addition to the firm power
contracts Mountain States Pow
er company has also contracted
with Bonneville for energy to
be delivered at Albany as re
placement for power formerly
contracted by the company from
the California-Oregon power
company and now delivered to
Bonneville customers.
These arrangements also pro
vide for the installation by the
company of a 26,668 KVA sub
station at Albany to be con
nected and supplied from the
Bonneville system, and further
more for Bonneville to install
at 12,000 KVA substation at Al
bany to supply other portions of
the company's loads at Albany.
in aaaition the company now
has a 26,666 KVA connection
with Bonneville system at West
Salem. Resulting from these re
cently executed contracts the
capacity of the company's con
nections with Bonneville has
been increased by 83,666 KVA
to a total of 65,332 KVA.

Living Costs in
Slow Decline
Washington, March "8 VP)
Living costs have slipped back
almost to where they were at
the start of 1948.
The bureau of labor statistics
reported Friday that a 1.1 per
cent drop in its consumers price
index between January 15 and
February 15 brought the cost of
living to within 0.9 per cent of
the figure for a year ago.
It marked the fifth month in
a row during which there was
a drop In the price of things peo
ple buy. And it was one of the
sharpest drops for one month
since the war.
On the other hand a BLS re
port showed a gain over the
past year in the average earn
ings of the 12,600,000 production
workers in manufacturing
In mid-February, the weekly
earnings reached $54.25 al
though the work week was
about an hour shorter than a
year earlier when earnings
were $51.75. Average hourly
earnings were put at approxi
mately 1.38, about nine cents
above a year ago.
The BLS cost of living index

Mucfi deliTxration and tfiougHtful planning is involved in
moving one of these chessmen. People who play this game spend
many hours contemplating the next move. Often a player finds
his move has proved futile, and frequently he discovers his play
has cost him the game.
In chess, we are not always able to foresee the move that lies
ahead. If we lose, we merely chalk one up for the other side and
forget about it.
But in another more serious game we are not able to treat
our failures so lightly. In the game of life, we cannot deliberately
ignore and forget our errors.
In life also, we are faced with our inability to foretell the cor
rect move, but here the outcome is more important. This is why
we must put our faith in something greater, something more sure
than mere human speculation.
We who live in the Christian era are blessed wnth great gifts
of inspiration and guidance the Bible and the Church. Through
them our lives may be made victorious. But the choice is ours . . .
to win, or to lose!
