Terms In Sale of Bonds Hit As Too Drastic (Continued from page 1) at a higher rate of interest, and without a similar foreclosure clause, is unknown. Another alternative might be the submission of the issue to Bluffton voters, and if passed by a two-thirds majority bonds would be retired thru a general property tax. A standby arrangement with the Central Ohio Light and Power Co. for the purchase of current in excess of the Bluffton plant’s capacity during peak loads represents an other possible course of action. This arrangement would eliminate any necessity for additions to the plant at this time when buildings costs are unusually high, it was pointed out by some councilmen, and might permit expansion at a more advantageous time. Turbine Uncertainty Another general factor of uncer tainty was a recent statement by John Swisher, plant superintendent, to the effect that another turbine is needed now for standby protection even tho the new stack and new boiler are constructed with funds from the bond issue. This virtually requires standby arrangements from some outside source, inasmuch as no additional bonds can be issued under the Stranahan, Harris and Co. proposed contract for three years, and then only if financial condition of the plant permit. The crisis in generating capacity here is of a two-fold nature, accord ing to Swisher. Present boiler capacity he says is inadequate to permit peak load generation with the large turbine at the plant, but even with a new boiler the smaller turbine will be unable to carry peak loading. This situation would re quire standby arrangement in case of emergencies provoked by failure of the large turbine.
