Herds Why'... use is increasing in cost as well. This higher fuel cost is now being reflected in your electric energy bill each month. When- you take the combined increase in costs from these two factors - greater usage and greater fuel costs- you receive a higher bill fl)r your electric service. As to the increased billing due to higher fuel costs, it is true you are paying the Company more money. But, just as the "stole owner" pays his sales tax collections to the state we pay th increased fuel costs to fuel suppliers. Electricity- Still Best Bargain Even with higher fuel costs, electricity remains one of the biggest bargains in the: family budget. Customers today use electricity for so many more things than they did in years gone by. And buying kilowatt hours is just like buying apples and oranges-the more units one buys the greater the bill. But it is still a fact that despite higher fuel oil and greatly increased costs in every' phase of the e!ectric business, the average price which MP&L customers pay today for a kilowatt hour of electricity is still substantially lower than it was in 1950. The cost of living has gone Up 82% since 1950. But, the average price all MP&L customers pay for a kilowatt hour of electricity is 24% LOWER than it was then. Frankly, do you know of any other goods or service where the unit price today is lower than it was in 19507 So, we believe that despite higher bills due to fuel oil adjustments, hot weather and greater usage MP&L electricity is still one of the best bargains on today's market. ;Remember, electricity serves you better- and best of all when you use it wisely.  ii:(:i:i!:i!@':.i::i::!i!   ISSISSIPPl P(WER &'I.GIt.; 50 Ye(s. Helping. Build giss/ssiepi " IM. I DD L E SOUTH UIILITIE$ SYSTEM Your electric service bill is up... even though MP&L rates remain the same. Sounds paradoxical, but it's true! There are two big reasons for this fact. }tot Weather t First, it's summer, and witi hot weather comes air-conditioning. This means greater usage of electric energy to keep homes, offices, businesses and industries cool and comfortable. We've become accustomed to air-conditioning, and expect and even demand it- but it certainly calls for greater use of power. This is a seasonal demand for energy, and usage will vary with temperature changes. This, then, is the first reason for your bill being higher during these months. Higher Fuel Costs Second, and MOST IMPORTANTLY to you and the Company, your service bill is up for every kilowatt-hour you use because of higher and fluctuating cost of fuel used in generating electricity. This factor, having nothing to do with base rates, is known as the "fuel adjustment clause" in billing. To oversimplify, it means that costs of fuel for electric power generation- such as natural gas, fuel oil, nuclear, or any other generating fuel - are reflected in charges made to the customer. MP&L's base rates, approved by regulatory agencies, are the same as they were last st, miner with the ultimate cost to the customer being up or down, depending upon the up or, down cost: of fuel used in generation. All electric utilities are affected by the fuel shortage. Tbe nomai supoiy of natura gas, historically the principal fuel used by MP&L for electrk power generation, has been greatly curtailed, after suppliers obtained an order from the Federal Power Commission limiting the amount of gas they will supply MP&L for generating purposes. The most readily available substitute fuel, namely fuel oil, used to replace the restricted gas supply costs from two to three times as much as gas. And thq limited supp! of gas available for boiler Jones added that while this ntew criteria insures that all applications will be reviewed, the eligibility for flood loan ap- provals will be evaluated and judged on an individual by-case basis.

PROPER PRUNING Avoid pruning flowering shrubs until you see blossoms. advises Wallace Gordon, Exten- sion horticulturist at Missis- sippi State University. Prema- tuze pruning elimina'tes flower buds pre:cnt on the limbs. It is best to thin forsy:thia, quince and spirea. The oldest and tallest stems need removal at ground level, so newer, more vigorous growth can mature.
