Line Planned
Construction will begin early
next year on the longest 345,000
volt transmission line in 'he Unit
ed States, it was announced by
Arizona, Public Service Co.
The 300-mile transmission line
will bring electric energy from the
company’s proposed Four Corners
power plant in. northwest New
Mexicr to load centers in Arizona.
Engineering work now is in pro
gress on the transmission system,
and the right of way survey is
nearly three-quarters completed
It is expected that aerial profil
ing of the terrain will begin with
in a month.
Beginning at the Four Corners
plant, two 355,000-volt lines will
travel to switchyards at the com !
pany’s Cholia power plant now
under construction near Joseph
City. From there, a single 345,-
00-volt lin? will go south over
Arizona’s rugged Mogolion Rim
to link with the Phoenix area and
the rest of the Public Service sys
The conductor will be carried I
by steel towers from 100 to 110 !
feet in height. There will be an
average of between four md five
towers per mile which will give
spans in excess of 1.000 teet.
The two lines from b our Cor

will each be 160 miles 'ong and
will cost an estimated $20,600,000

to Phoenix, a distance of appro*
imately 15 miles will cost an
estimated $19,000,000.
Other components ot the new
transmission line will be the con

tions at Four Corners, Cholic plant
and the modification of the sta

estimated $15,600,000. bringing the
total cost ot line and switching

How True
One day a young man found a
$5 bill between the ties of a rail
road track. From that time on
he never lifted his eyes from the
ground wh le walking. In 30 yeara
he accumulated 25,916 buttons, 62,-
172 pins, 7 pennies, a bent back
and sour disposition. In ‘find’ all
this, h e lost the smiles of his
friends, the songs of the birds,
the beauties of nature, and the
opportunity to serve his fellowmen
spread hanpiness.
