Hood River assumed holiday ■pirli
Thursday for the ded lost ton of •
91,250,000 hydro-electric plant just
completed on Hood river, immediately
South of the city, by ths Pacific Power
4 Light Company. About 175 prom
inent Portland officials of power con
cerns, flnanelal iustitntions and Arms
engaged in the manufacture of elec
trical equipment motored here for the
event, and The Dalles sent a delega
tion of 50, chiefly members of the Kl-
wanis Club, all of whom were individ
ualised by their unique Klwania caps.
Following a buffet lunch s<*rved to
700 persons nt the tuess camp of the
Phoenix Utility Company, builder of
the big project, the formal program
was held beside the new power bouse.
Lewis A. McArthur, general manager
and vice-president of the interstate
KIh 11c ut I lit j presided. Ghy W. Tal-
t, president, announced that other
similar power projects later would be
constructed on Hood River.
L. B. Gibson, county school superin
tendent, represented Hood River coun
ty. He expressed appreciation on the
part of the busiaeM folk of the town
and the people in general fur the dis
tribution of the heavy labor fund.
More than 50 per cent of the >1,250,000
was HiHiit in wages. Mr. Glbauu said
that last summer, when a maximum of
450 Hood Residents were among the
827 employes, a large numlier of high
school students were able to earn
money for pursuing their work this
Judge Fred W. Wilson, of The
Dalles, president of the Oregon State
Bar Aasociation, declared that the in
stallation caUlug forth the day's cere
monies was but the initiation of a
power development in the Columbia
river basin that in time would be the
lradlng exemplification of hydro-elec
trical projects of the continent.
Mr. McArthur introduced officials
of the power company and numerous
guests,' among tlkem the following:
R. D. Johnson, of New York City, de-
siger of the surge tank and gigantic
valve segulating the flow and pressure
of the great water bead; H. T. Hum
phrey, of Portland, manager of the
plate steel depart met of the Wiliam-
eile TR®~r Ntefl-WöfMT
stalled the steel pipe and gates-of the
huge dam, and C. L. Wernicke, man
ager of the Portland branch of thr
Wsatinghouae Electric Company, which
Installed the generating machinery.
The generator, Which bds a capacity
of 9,000 horsepower, Is the largest
driven by water in the Northwest. In
deed, electric experts have said that
the Hood river, plant is the most com
plete now in operation in the North
west. No other plant west of the Miss
issippi is equipped with a Johnson
valve or surge tank.
Because of the new features the de
signer made the journey from New
York City in order that he might wit
ness its operation. His coining waa a
surprise to the officials who arranged
the dedication services.
The ceremony ended with a dramat
ic climax when Mias Prudence Talbot,
daughter of the company's president,
moved a lever that opened the huge
Johnson valve. The hum of the great
turbine set the crowd to cheering.
Miaa Talltot then pressed a button that
turned the energy being developed by
the mighty generator into a system of
transformers that stepped it up from
6,000 to 06,000 volte, and the energy
flowed out through the intricate
switchyard across the Columbia and
thence in a twinkling down to Port
land. It was also immediately avail
able at The Dalles and other inid-
For a minute small guage lights on
the switch dial manipulated by the
girl seemed to flicker. It was ex
plained that this phenomenon would
result until the plant and other huge
projects with which It was tied in be-
caipe synchronized. The little lights
grew steady and glowed brilliantly de
spite the glare of an afternoon sun.
"She's going," cried Mr. McArthur,
and thus the 9,000 horsepower of new
energy from the Hood river's white
coal, was cut In for driving Northwest
ern induatrit«. As cameras clicked
and a motion picture machine recorded
the activities, Miss Talbot pulled a
cord that released the folds of a huge
American Flag high up on the giant
surge tank, which towered 207 feet
above the spectators.
The crowd gave an ovation to John
E. Shinn, superintendent of construc
tion of the electrical project. Mr.
Shinn, a veteran in electrical ctmstrac-
tlon work/ has won a reputation for
his ability to handle labor.

The Hood River plant, located about
a quarter of a mile south of the city
limits, has the following equipment.
•Utircly new to northwestern power
plants: The Moody spreading draft,
tube, Johns«« control valve, Johnson
differential surge tank and electrically

outstanding! features are as follows:

to divert into the intake so much of
the flow of the stream as needed for
driving the generator.

used: Cement, 14,000 barrels; sand
and gravel, 16,700 cubic yards; total
quality of reinforcing material, 193
tons; lumber in pipeline, 1,700,000
