Good thing, too, because on July 31 of that year your use of electricity reached an all-time high of 427,000 kilowatts. • Since then you’ve done a lot of building—more houses, apartments, office buildings, plants, using more and more electrical equipment. On June 18,1957 your requirements established a new high of 965,000 kilowatts. And pepco was ready. In those 10 years we had built $219,300,000 worth of new generating and distribution facilities, giving us a capacity of 1,091,000 kilowatts—more than double that of 1947. And today pepco is still building. In 1958 alone, we’re investing $60,000,000 in new construction. And no matter what new peak you demand this year, or the next, or the next—we’ll be ready . . . because it’s the responsibility of pepco— to bring you all the electricity you want when and where you want it —at the lowest possible cost POTOMAC BUKCTI,,C rf Lr i£.Ysown LIVE BETTER . . .

Transit System Inc.. has asked the Public Service Commission for rehearing of ! a May 12 decision that it could not extend a Montgomery 1 County line all the way into 1 Wheaton. 1 D. C. Transit had asked per mission to extend its Silver Spring community busline from 1 Four Corners to Wheaton. The ■ PSC ruled this would result in 1 competition with the ooetation - of Suburban Transit Co It 1 : said D. C. Transit could extend : no closer than half a mile to Wheaton. The petition for rehearing said the company’s original | proposal should be operated in; Its entirety and "it is uneco nomical, disadvantageous and 1 impractical for only part of such services to be operated by applicant.” D. C. Transit said the PSC was wrong, in its May 12 order. In finding there is no public demand for the full ex tension and finding that the extension would become com petitive with Suburban Tran sit. The company said it would submit new evidence at the l rehearing. ‘ 5:45 p.m., 14 minutes. To Falls Church at Lee highway and Broad street—At 5:15 p.m„ 35 > minutes. At 5:45 p.m., 26 min utes.
