Crawford had a little real exper
ience In getting a tap on the head
by a sand spout chain suspended

ed out and saved himself from go
ing over the edge of the car. A

en in the cut on his forehead. The
boys report an enjoyable trip and

New Industrial Engineer
Appointed by P. P. & L.
To aid in the industrial develop
ment of the communities served by
Pacific Power & Light company, B.
P. Bally has been promoted to the
position of industrial engineer for
the utility, it is announced by Lewis
A. McArthur, vice-president and
general manager. Baily will carry
forward the business development
activities formerly handled by Geo.
H, Wisting, whose entire time is to
be devoted to the sales problems of
Northwestern Electric company.
"It la believed that one of the re
sults of the present economic situa
tion will be the decentralization of
industries, and it is possible that
many manufacturing units will be
looking for new locations in smaller
communities close to the field of
consumption," said McArthur in
commenting on the change. "It will
be part of our program to see that
the communities we serve get their
share of the results that follow such
changes, it being understood, of
course, that the Pacific company
expects to benefit through the se
curing of increased load."
One of the activities contemplat
ed by Bally is a survey of the indus
trial possibilities of each district
served bv the company. Purpose of
the survey will be to make available
as complete information as can De
obtained regarding the natural re
sources, existing industries and de
velopment possibilities of each com
munity. Baily is thoroughly familiar with
the territory served by Pacific Pow
er & Light company. He has been
with the company since 1910, start
ing as manager of the Pasco dis
trict. From 1911 to 1918 he was
manager of The Dalles district,
from 1918 to 1925 he was manager
of the Astoria district, and from
1925 to 1929 he had charge of the
Yakima district. Since 1929 he has
been in the operating department
of the company, with headquarters
at Portland.
