Effort Made; Begin REA Work This Fall–
The Northern Electric Co-op, Inc., today became owner of the Opheim electric plant and took immediate possession, with former Fred Jessel in charge as chief engineer and Frank Leslie as manager and bookkeeper.
The corporation has been allotted $440,000 for its REA project and its directors are making an effort to get the pole line well started this fall so many of the patrons will have electric service this winter. A three- phase line is specified, and
the bulk of the patrons are in the territory between Opheim and Scobey.
