Take away the electricity and what have you got? Z . Today's living de- pends on electricity.. ,without it, we'd literally be in the "dark ages?Today, the average American uses more electric- ity, for more purposes, than ever before. It's important to. everyone to use electrici wisely--not wastefully. The cost of electric power has increased in re- cent years. Several things are responsible for this. First, the cost of producing electricity has increasea, because the fuels used to produce it are more expensive. Secondly, the cost of distributing electric power has rsen, because of increased labor costs for in- stalling and maintaining lines, .and higher financing costs for capital improvements. Through efficient dis- tribution methods, your Elec- tric Power Association has kept your electric rates as low as possible; the cost of elec- tricity has not risen as fast as the cost of many other neces- sities of life. As a homeowner, you can do a lot toward keeping your electric bill low. Be sure your electric heating and air conditioning system is operating efficiently...turn off unneeded lights.., used wisely, electricity is still a bargain.

[ "For the first time in a quar- [ ter of a century, producers no1 longer have huge government [ grain sleeks hanging over the[ market," said James W. Calvert, chairman of the Wilkinson County Agricultural Stabiliza- tion and Consexvation (ASC) i Committee. "This mean,s that 'farm prices in the future will more faithfully reflect the pull of the market." With CCC grain stcks pr,actically out of the picture, farmers may want to plan their eve roll marketing cpcrations accordingly, he said. C'-airman Calvert stated that the U.S. Department of Agricul- ture recently announced that CCC h,a,s sold or earmarked for spee!al use all of its corn and wheat and has only small stocks of barley, rye and sor- ghums. The only gxain being held in sizable quantity in COC's uncommitted inventory is oats. he added. Orderly movement of govern- ment-held grain stocks into commercial channels has been progressing since early January .when USDA announced plans to expand sales of CCC grain, the chairman .said. The departmen pointed out then that it has a legal obliga.tion to supplemen short supplies of private grain, and since then over 25{) million U.S.D.A.

Calvert nted that interest in forward contracting, hedging, and other forms of marketing to lock in profits, often ,before crops are even planted, is in- creasing across the country. "One has only to notice the big increase m articles on the sub- ject now appearing in the farm press to see this." he added.
