   Walla Walla Union-Bulletin (Newspaper) - April 5, 1953, Walla Walla, Washington                               CHRISTIANS TO PRAY FOR PEACE IN WORLD Br THE ASSOCIATED FBESS Christians around the world cel- ebrated the anniversary of Christ's resurrection Sunday in an Easter lull of hope that fast moving events in East and West may .bring world peace. Allied negotiators in Korea pre- pared to meet with the Commu- to work out an exchange of sick and wounded prisoners as the first step in treating with the la- test Hed overtures for. an armis- tice. The western world moved warily on surprise conciliation moves in the Kremlin. Christians interspersed their hallelujahs to "Christ with prayers for fulfillment of His mission for peace on earth. On Korean battlefronts and around the .world, sunrise services heralded the arrival of Easter. Eighth Army soldiers celebrated in bunkers, valleys, and on hill- tops. In an Easter message to his troops in Korea, Gen. Mark Clark said: "Our hearts hold new hope that we may be near an honorable end of this grim but imperative task." In the United States, this year more than ever before, sunrise services were popular. From east lo west coast, millions of Ameri- cans arranged to go to the hill- tops and plateaus for song, prayer and pageant in the open. Climaxing the Roman Catholic celebration of Christ's victory over death. Pope Pius XII was to ap- pear on the central loggia of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome for an address that will be broadcast throughout the world in 25 lan- guages. In Jerusalem. Arab and Jew buried their differences to permit pilgrims to visit the holy places. Throngs donned Easter finery for gay promenades through ave- nues of many of the world's cities. In' Washington, President and Mrs. Eisenhower, like millions ir the nation, planned to attend Easter service. They have an- nounced that on Easter Monday they will revive 'the' traditional egg-rolling frolic for- children on the White House lawn. First McNary Power, a Wee Bit, Due to Come This Month From Small Generators APRIL Is the when Army Engineers expect to divert water now running through the powerhouse, right above, to the newly-raised spillway bays on the left of McNary dam. The power- house gates will be closed and the water will start over the spillway when it reaches an elevation of 291 feet. This will signify the start of tht filling of McNary pool and the day it will reach the 310-foot level is anyone's .guess. (Corps of Engineers photo, Davison engraving) First power from McNary dam, that pile ol stecl-rcin- 'orccd concrete across the Colum- bia River near Umatilla. will come this month. But this first water-whirled gen- erator will add nothing to the Northwest power pool's depicted electric supplies. It is a little one -a kilowatt job that is dwarf- ed by the 70.000 kilowatt genera- tors which will provide the dam's generation kilo- watts. There'will be two of the small generators and they will serve the electricity needs of the dam itself. One of the prime uses ot the cur- rent they produce will be to lure salmon into climbing the Oregon shore fish ladder. This first power will be produced about the same time the lake be- hind McNary dam starts to fill, jresently estimated to be about April 16. That is the first major event to be established by the man-made giant this one that is teeping the public guessing. The public will observe when the water reaches the 310-foot level and the lake is created, Other events include a public ceremony, probably at the dam. to dedicate the lake after Congress names it later this spring: filling the lake to the 335-foot level next October and putting the first power on the line in December. Chambers of Commerce of Wal- la Walla. Pendleton, Pasco, Ken- newick, Hermiston and the McNa- ry Recreation Association are sponsoring a year-long publicity campaign for the area. But the major point to remem- ber is your chance for winning the free cash prize for guessing the correct day and time the lake will reach the 310-foot level. A cou- pon appears in the Union-Bulletin. Simply fill it out and mail to the nearest Chamber of Commerce or put the information on a post card and mail it. The deadline is Wednesday. Army Engineers expect to close the gates in the powerhouse about April 16 to divert the flow of the river through the spillway. This will start the filling of the lake. How long it takes depends on the flow of the Columbia and Snake rivers at that melting, snow and other items are the ma-; jor factors. Some estimates are three days, some four or five but; others say. with the right condi-. tions. it can be filled in 24 hours., Oregon Rolls to B Wheat Crop AppearsGopd n This Area Kill Will Be Responsible For Some Aid By PAtJL W.

It was passed in 1949. but hasn't lad much effect. The bill puts some teeth in it by letting the Public Welfare Com mission get tax commission rec ords. and gives the Welfare Com missions authority to get the help of courts in enforcing it. The law has a scale ot payments required to be made by the rela lives, and the bill increases th scale.
