Waterloo Daily Courier (Newspaper) - January 29, 1970, Waterloo, Iowa Conservoffonisfs See Damage to Scenic River WATERLOO DAILY COUKIWt, WATERLOO, IOWA THURSDAY, JANUARY 1970 "oae Governor Backs Power Plant WASHINGTON (AP) _ Con- servationists fighting a power project they say would 'serious- ly alter, if not recre- ational uses and beauty of the scenic New River in West Vir- gmia have run afoul of that state's governor; state of West Virginia has no desire to jeopardize this said Gov. Arch A Moore Jr. He asked in a tele- gram that a petition for inter- vention filed only days before by his own Department of Na- tural Resources be withdrawn from Federal Power Commis- sion proceedings on Appala- chian Power Company's Blue Ridge Project. Surprise Move Moore's surprise move, unan- nounced in his home state, came as the FPC prepared to hear oral arguments for and against the million, two-1 dam hydroelectric project that affects three southern states. The project, already approved by FPC Examiner William C. Levy, is located in Virginia and a small part of northern North Carolina. But the water spilling from the two proposed reservoirs would alter the flow of the New River through a rocky 100-mile Appalachian gorge in West Virginia. Rock, Jazz Stars at Moratorium Concert The West Virginia agency, asking a temporary halt to FPC proceedings pending a study of downstream effects of the dams, said the stretch of natur- al river "is a unique and irre- placeable recreational and fish- ery resource and attraction that is enjoyed by hundreds of thou- sands of citizens of the eastern United States." But Appalachian Power, a subsidary of the giant American Electric Power Co. of New York, contends the dams are necessary to meet growing elec- tric power needs of its Virginia and West Virginia customers. Appalachian Power first ap- plied for an FPC license to build a smaller project with oniy one dam in 1965. Under prodding hy the Department of Interior, Ap- palachian revised the project to its present form and received Levy's approval last Oct. 1.

Rock was the staple of the! concert but nearly every kind of music was represented. Blood, i Sweat and Tears played its jazz and rock hits with excitement, and got an encore, "Get Your- self Together." The Rascals played screaming loud rock 'n' roll. Mother Earth performed country-influenced rock and country, sung strongly by Tracy Nelson.

Peter Yarrow also provided continuity by doing several sing-alongs while equip- ment was being set up between acts. Jimi Hendrix, placed next to last, played two numbers, dropped his guitar, sat down and said, "We're not getting it together. Things aren't exactly right with me yet." His drum- mer, Buddy Miles, said Hendrix was ill and they would try to that come back later. But by McHenry Boatwright time, about 3 a.m., the audience was starting to leave. The Broadway cast of "Hair" closed the program with songs from the show, using "Let the Sun Shine In" for a finale. Harry Belafonte began the program with three peace songs. He was followed by Ri- chie Havens. Judy Collins pro- vided the sweet, gentle side of music, with songs by Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. Jazz pianist Dave Brubeck sliced his half hour into thirds, starting by playing as operatic sang two short sections from Brubeck's cantata, "The Gates of Justice." He accompanied Peter, Paul and Mary in'one song. And he and Paul Desmond played Desmond's "Take which the audience liked best. The audience applauded ev- erything, created no disturb- ance and made the peace sign every time somebody turned a camera on them. Most of them were young and stayed through the first 6% hours of the seven- hour, no-intermission musical marathon. THE GIANTS! Full 18-lb. capacity Signature washers-pick your sale price!
