The testimony of Oscar Bakke Faa Eastern regional director was in direct contradiction to that Given the same House appropriations subcommittee by f. Stuart Brown chief of the Federal Power commissions pc Bureau of Power.

The contradictory testimony of the two officials was contained in the text of hearings made Public today. Bakke said it was his understanding that a there was a serious miscalculation of the reverse flow of Power from the new York area out into other areas in which shutdowns had occurred and that this simply represented a substantial miscalculation on the part of the designers of the Grid a was a matter of fact a he added a most of those who operate within that system today insist that that Power blackout simply should not and could not have occurred.
