harness i the tide Horsepower not utilized By MERCEDES McMANUS WASHINGTONThe tide tar ries for no man but it comes back so regularly that man hopes to put it to work The ebb and flow of the sea against the land occurs with such clocklike precision that the Coast and Geodetic Survey con fidently prints advance tables showing the exact minute when high tide and low tides will oc cur all over the world The sur veys tidepredicting machine can predict tides on any beach for any day of any future year Such forceful regularity makes the tides tempting for power deficient areas the Nations Geographic says Theoretically tides could furnish perhaps hal the worlds energy needs bui men still watch helplessly as the surging sea squanders billions of kilowatts of power On a minor scale colonial Americans usec tidal power to turn mills but the dream of harnessing the tides on a large scale has never approached reality until now TODAY French engineers are completing the first stages of a giant tidal project in the Kance River near St Malo in Brit tany The project was planned with meticulous care Engineer built a 160yard model of the riv ers twisting inlets and under water contours Pumps manu factured miniature tides so that every problem could be antici pated Turbines will be put gradually into operation1 to determine whether the scheme is econom ically sound Spurred by the Ranee project interest has revived in the tides of Passamaquoddy Bay between Maine and New Brunswick Can ada Passamaquoddy joins the Bay of Fundy where surveyors have recorded 53foot tides the highest in the world THE FEDERAL governmen started a Quoddy Bay powe project in 1935 but work wa stopped in the planning stag when Congress withheld funds A recent study indi cated the project is feasible am By WILLIAM L RYAN Associated Press analyst UNITED NATIONS NY of the biggest dangers to the future of the United Nations is that Nikita Khrushchev can accomplish basically what he has set put to do without any necessity for reference to the will of the majority This is being discussed in the UN corridors in an atmos phere of deep concern The Soviet leader has made as clear as possible that he i out to get SecretaryGenera Dag Hammarskjold by on means or another His proposal to replace th office of secretarygeneral wit a preparalyzed threemembe presidium with builtin vet power can be looked upo more as a maneuver than a a proposal with any chance o reaching a formal vote But it is in effect a signa for allout war by the Commu nist bloc against the secretary general The purpose is to mak things so hot for Hammarskjoli that he will feel his effective ness at an end and see no choice but to resign SHOULD THIS come about Khrushchev will have accom plished his objective It would be next to impossibl to get a new secretarygenera who would b satisfactory t both East anc West search go on UNITED NATIONS N Y Nikita S Khrushchev proposed Tuesday to bring neutral nations into new disarmament talks and Gamal Ab Soviet leader and President Eisenhow tions Th coulc for months per haps even years Mean while the of fice would re main vacant and the peace DAG making func of the office paralyzed That actually is Khrushchevs major objective It would leave the field open for Communist interference in future emergencies such as the one which has kept the Congo in an uproar since the beginning of July US OBSERVERS here give his interpretation of Khrush government officials are weigh ing its merits If t h e project is approved huge gates swung by the se would trap tidal waters in a natural reservoir Channele through great penstocks to an adjacent basin kept at lowtide level by other gates the wate would power hydroelectric gen erators with an output a third that of Hoover Dam If tides can be harnessed man will plug a powerline into the moon and sun for those two heavenly bodies are the princi pal creators of tides Both bodies tug at the earth but the moon though far smaller than the sun pulls a little more than twice as hard because it is so much closer THE MOONS attraction causes the water of the oceans to pile up in two bulges one under the moon and the other directly opposite on the other side of the earth The fact thai water gathers on both sides of the earth seems odd but the phenomenon results from that complex interplay of the moons force the earths gravitational force and the centrifugal of the earthmoon system The moons pull is Herculean Twice each day 100 billion tons of water are lifted into the Bay of Fundy alone This is about 70 times the daily flow of the Mississippi at New Orleans and the movement creates an esti mated 200 million horsepower Charles City infant suffocates in crib CHARLES CITY A 3Vi month old Charles City baby suffocated In his crib Tuesday The infant was Ronald Wayne Hull son of WiyntHull Mr and Mrs chevs aim What he cannot control he will attempt to crush Khrushchev is aware that adoption of his proposal to change the structure of the sec retariat is impossible A change uch as he has suggested re quires a twothirds majority ote of the General Assembly And the change in the charter would have to be ratified by twothirds of the members in cluding all five permanent members of the Security Coun cil There is no chance of that In fact Khrushchev has yet to put forward his suggestion in the form of a formal proposal But he doesnt have to do that All he has to do is continue to insist that he and the Commu nist bloc have no confidence in Hammarskjold Nasser asks IkeK ta er to get together for a
