NPS Executive Director Dewey DeBoer told The Sun today. DeBoer had announced late yesterday that the NPS has decided to go ahead with the huge project, amt had set April 6 as date for sale of the bonds to finance the 70.000-kilowatt plant. Thc plant will occupy "several acres," and will employ about 50 people. DeBoer. NPPS expects to have it operating by late 1956. "We will be getting extra power from the Bureau of Reclamation hydro plants in South Dakota, but by 1956 we expect that our demands will be exceeding this extra supply," DeBoer told Tile Sun. "We have been told that the Bureau xviii give us no further increases, after 1956, until I960.’* There were several considerations which led to selection of Beatrice as site of thc huge generator. Fright Factor "York is actually the center of our load center,’ said DeBoer. "We selected Beatrice because of thc more favorable freight rates on the coal we will use, access to natural gas (two natural gas pipelines run near Beatrice), and availability of a large supply of water. And the proximity to the load center." DeBoer said the decision to offer the bonds was made last week at a conference attended by officials of the NPSS and the hydro districts — the Loup River Public Power District and the Platte Valley Public Power District. Thc decision was taken despite refusal of the budget board to approve either the NPSS plan or a similar one proposed by Consumers Public Power District. NPPS considered Consumers plan unacceptable and decided to go ahead on its own.

DeBoer said the bonds to be sold next month will be revenue bonds of two series maturing in about 35 years starting in 1959. Diey will be NPS bonds, but the Loup district will issue them. The decision to build the plant had been put off for nearly two years awaiting determination of Bureau of Reclamation power to be available, DeBoer said.

PRESIDENT PINNED—Judging from his facial expression. President Eisenhower seems to tie trying to help E. Roland Harriman pin a Red Cross button on his lapel. Harriman, volunteer chairman of the mole from the Bureau this year, 30.000 more in 1953 and another 30.000 in 1936. These increases will take care of the anticipated demand to 1956. said DeBoer. “Rut we are given to understand that after 1956 there will be no more Bureau power for us until 1960, We look for our demand to keep growing, however, and the Beatrice plant will be ready to take care ot if.” The 70.000 - kilowatt generator here will be the largest single unit the NPPS system. The Bellevue plant has a rated capacity of 90.000 kilowatts, but it has three units, each turning out 30,000. Power from the Beatrice plant will be fed into the NPSS power grid at the sub-station northwest of Beat l ie. While normally such steam generation plant- are located on a river, because of the large amounts of water needed for cooling, and although Beatrice in on a river. De Boor said that probably wells and cooling towers would be used here, because of the good underground water supply here. Such a plant would need several thousand gallons of water per minute. Ray Schacht. manager of Consumers Public Power System, had no comment on what this action on the part of NPSS would have on Consumers plan for an eastern Nebraska steam plant of its own.
