Installation in 1955 of this UNKRA-supplied 60,000 kVA, 154/66 kV transformer at the principal power receiving station for the Seoul area restored 66 kV power transmission to Seoul for the first time since 1951. The transformer also resulted in substantial reduction in power losses. [Photograph 7876]

Macha-Ri coal-fields

UNKRA sparks increased production in Korea. As a part of its effort to help increase coal production in Korea, the UNKRA has engaged the services of British mining consultants and technicians to work with Korean mine managers, engineers and technicians in the rehabilitation and modernization of the coal mines. The Macha-ri coal field, located some 150 miles southeast of Seoul in the mountainous region of Kwang-do, is one of the principal coal mining sites being worked at present. There, a narrow-gauge railway brings coal from three high'level mines - Bamchi Nos. 1 and 2 Solchi - down to the entrance of the main mine, Pangyo, in the valley below. From there, coal from all four mines is carried by aerial ropeway 7-1/2 miles overland to Yongwol power station. Here: the Korean Deputy Superintendent discusses the day's coal production of the Pangyo mines with his Chief Engineer. Photograph 1797.

Dutch eggs for Korea.

A shipment of 60,000 fertilized Kahki Campbell duck eggs from the Netherlands arrived here this morning aboard a transport plane chartered by the UNKRA. The eggs are a gift of the Dutch Committee of Interchurch Aid and Service to Refugees. The Secretary of the Committee, Dr. O. W. Heldring supervised and accompanied the shipment to Korea. The eggs will be distributed to hatcheries throughout the country; 22,000 will go to incubators of national and provincial breeding stations and 38,000 to selected private hatcheries. Distribution of the ducklings after the eggs are hatched has been planned by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in cooperation with the Korea Church World Service (KCWS) and the Korea Civil Assistance Command. Seen here shortly after arriving in Seoul, Dr. O. W. Heldring (left) supervises preparation of the Dutch eggs for incubation. Looking on is Mr. Kim Chong Whan, General Secretary of the KCWS. [1839]
