   Pyongyang, November 15 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il provided field guidance to the Kumjingang Hungbong Youth Power Station built by Hamju County. He was briefed on the power station before a huge painting showing a panoramic view of the station. He went round generator and electricity distribution rooms to learn in detail about the construction of the power station and the electricity production there.
    After seeing generators and the computerized control room, he highly praised the workers of the power station for having cut down the loss of electricity in transmission as much as possible by introducing advanced technology and the workers of the Ryongsong Machine Complex and the Songchongang Electrical Factory for having successfully manufactured efficient generators.
    He mounted an observation platform to command a bird's-eye view of the power station. He expressed satisfaction over the fact that Hamju County has built one more great structure in the era of the Workers' Party.
    The Kumjingang Hungbong Youth Power Station has been built in such an ideal manner that everything in the power station ranging from its designing to its construction has been constructed to meet the need of technical engineering, he said, adding that the power station is a splendid creation to be proud of in all aspects in the new century.
    Noting that the country is prospering thanks to the people's fighting spirit of devotedly implementing the party's instructions, the spirit of flattening even a mountain and emptying even a sea at one go, if required by the party to do so, and the might of the single-minded unity more powerful than any weapon, he said, adding that the manifestation of this inexhaustible mental power clearly shows the people's faith and will and militant determination to build without fail a great prosperous powerful nation by their own efforts.
    Going round a sideline livestock farm constructed by young builders by themselves, he praised them for having managed their economic life on their own to give the country what little help they can do.
    He set forth tasks to be undertaken to keep the electricity production going at a high rate at the power station and complete the construction of the tiered power stations in the area of Chusang ahead of schedule.
    Making the round of the new Hamju County Farmers' Rest Home built in the forest on the shore of a lake, he expressed satisfaction over the fact that the county has built a modern rest home where electricity is in ample use so that farmers may fully enjoy a pleasant cultural rest in the place of scenic beauty.
    He proposed tasks to be fulfilled to operate the rest home.
    He spared time to visit the family of Ju Sang Ho who works there.
    Looking round the living rooms and the kitchen kept neat and tidy, he noted with pleasure that it is very good to use electricity produced by the power station not only for heating the floor but for cooking.
    He highly appreciated the revolutionary fighting spirit and forward-looking work style of the leading officials of Hamju County, noting that they have brought about a fresh turn in improving the standard of people's living by getting the masses on the move.
    He was accompanied by Hong Song Nam, chief secretary of the South Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the WPK, Kim Phung Gi, chairman of the South Hamgyong Provincial People's Committee, Kim Ki Nam, secretary of the Central Committee of the WPK, Pak Nam Gi, department director of the C.C., WPK, and Jang Song Thaek and Ri Jae Il, first vice department directors of the same.
