Lolagrrgre in the sum of $16,000, TO SERVE YOU BE00IL ]ER Your.use of e lectr!c heat helps keep electric rates lower than they would be otherwise. The greatest requirement for electric power in our part of the country comes in the summer, when homes, offices, and industry all need the comfort of electric air conditioning. Since electricity can't be stored the way a can of beans can, electric generating plants must be available to meet the summer demand. So it becomes a matter of good business judgment and common sense for MP&L to market its product--electric power-- during winter months. When high and low periods of use are more nearly in balance--without the wasteful effect of idle plants and equipment--M P& L can achieve a more economic use of its electric generating plants... which, in turn, helps you by keeping electric rates lower than they would otherwise be. But o[ course there are many other reasons for considering electric heat in your home. Its flexibility, for instance. Its dependable, even warmth. And its cleanliness. Remember, electricity is the cleanest energy source known, producing no pollution wherever it is used. And remember this, too: electricity serves you better. Best of all when you use it wisely.  , ilSSlSSIPPl POWER & LIGHT 50 Years HeDin 8uild Mississinpi UTILITIES SYSTEb 00 for the purchase of used D5 Caterpillar dozer owned by the Fifth District.} (Here follows copy of order of Board accepting bid of W.

Congress could better spend its time creating consiructive, consistent policies I that would encourage the great I engine of competitive private l enterprise 'to get on with the I job of producing the things es- sential to the quality of human life and the progress of modern civilization, Justice surely d, ces not requt,re a three-ring circus to be carried on for a year or more. The lawmakers' time would be better spent in devis- ing some means to control their own spending habits, long so profligate as to threaten the financial security of every American And so the sory goes, Dislocations in our national life in which government poli- cies, often shaped more by political thinking than reality, have played a central role. Per- haps it would be too much in this day and age to suggest that the best government is still the I one which governs the least. But, in the light of all that is happening, it seems eminently freasonable to state tllat for the I U.S. a better government would be one which governed at leas cost and with more regard for the realities of the arld today and for the conditions necessary to the successful functioning of the economic system upon which every person in the United States depencts for his livelihood and his future.
