Power company plans expansion WABAMUN (CP) Calgary Power Ltd. is con- sidering a 25-per-cent increase in the capacity of its Sundance plant at Lake Wabamun 50 miles west of Ed- monton, Marshall M. Williams, company president, says. He said in an interview that Calgary Power has received interim approval from the Energy Resources Conserva- tion Board to build a acre cooling pond, nearly twice the size originally approved. Scheduled generating capacity of the plant is megawatts by 1978. Three hundred megawatts now are in use, with another 300 to be added Nov. 19. With approval of the enlarg- ed cooling pond, the company is considering adding another 375 megawatts in plant capacity, said Mr. Williams. A provincial environment department report has warn- ed that enlarging the cooling pond to include part of Goose- quill Bay will endanger a waterfowl and pike breeding habitat. However, Mr. Williams said studies commissioned by Calgary Power show that biological losses will be balanced by the increased use of the pond by fish tolerant of warm water. The cooling pond, scheduled for completion in 1975, would eliminate heat pollution of Lake Wabamun from the Sundance plant. But there are no plans for eliminating heat pollution from an older Calgary Power plant on the lake. The pond project will cost about million, including construction of a pipeline from the North Saskatchewan River to replace water evaporated from the pond. The Sundance plant features an electrostatic precipitator which will remove 99.7-per- cent of flyash, an air pollutant, from the plant's smokestacks, said Mr.- Williams. Columnist's notebook By Hal Boyle NEW YORK (AP) Re- marks that college students get tired of hearing: "Why do you want to live in a co-educational dormitory? I'd rather know you were do- ing your learning in a classroom." "I have a letter from the dean saying you have been put on probation. Is that an "Mother and I send our congratulations on your being chosen a cheerleader, Jane. If anyone asks me what my daughter is getting out of Col- lege, I can tell them you've already been taught how to wave a stick and yell." "Young man, I'll be glad to admit you to my lecture course on 18th-century dolls, but only if you understand that the word dolls isn't being used in the slang sense." "I can't go out with you on any weekend evening until next February, Joe. You know we don't have too many girls enrolled in Princeton yet, and most of Us are dated up almost a semester ahead.1' "Son, the veiled threat in your last letter that you might have to become a campus drug salesman if I don't increase your allowance doesn't frighten me at all. Frankly, I've thought for some time now that a two-or three-year prison sentence might be the making of you. Certainly you'd have more time to study." "Jane, when Dad and I saw you during Homecoming Week we were almost ash- amed to claim you as our daughter. Do you always go about looking fike a PILLS? YOU? "Young man, I can forgive you for falling asleep during my lecture on Bismarck, but I do have to draw a line when your snoring begins to dis- tract the entire class." "Your mother tells me you now are going bra-less in sup- port of the femme lib protest, Jane. How would you like it if your dear old-fashioned dad paid a surprise visit to your sorority house some afternoon wearing no "If you insist on marrying the boy while you're still in college, Jane, I can't stop you. But if you do, send your dental bills to his father, not me." "The college infirmary has sent me a statement, Joe, list- ing you owe for a three- month supply of pills. What are the pills for, who is taking them? I'm just curious." "You may have paid me for the books at the start of the school year, but they were new then. They are used now. All I can give you for the lot is Take it or leave it." STRAIGHT- SAN DIEGO (AP) Every- body stood a little taller and straighten when Charles LeRoy Lowman walked by. "They know what a stickler I am for good said Dr. Lowman, who at 93 stands ramrod straight. "They" are physicians here this week for the 37th annual meeting of the Western Orthopedic Association.
