the matter is increased by the ap

Benton REA Signs
Contract for Juice
from P. P. & L. CO.
O
The Rural Electrification Admin
istration today approved a contract
between the Washington Water
Power Company and the Inland
Empire Rural Electrification Incor
porated; and one between the Pa
cific Power and Light Company and
the Benton Rural Electric Associa
tion, for supplying wholesale elec
tric energy for the new lines. This
action is the culmination of long ne
gotiations to solve wholesale rate
problems which had blocked rural
electrification projects in the Pacific
Northwest for months. ‘ ‘
The new rate schedule on which
the new contracts are based were
filed with the Department of Public
Service of the State of Washington,
which today telegraphed to REA
that it has ordered them into effect
immediately without insisting upon
the statutory waiting period. The
Department also informed REA that
the same rate schedules have been
filed in Oregon and Idaho, where
oher REA—financed projects will
benefit from them.
These new rates average 3 to 5
mills per kilowatt-hour lower than
schedules offered previously. The
projects listed below will save a to
total of $27,000 a year in charges
for wholesale energy because of this
new schedule.
The new contracts include, in ad
dition to the lower rate schedule,
terms and conditions which meet
REA objections to former offers. ‘Al
most equally with the rates, the
terms and conditions proposed had
caused REA to withhold approval
of wholesale contracts until now.
Two other projects have signed
similar contracts, which are being
sent to Washington for approval.
Spud Growers Vote

favor of the act. Only a. small
number of votes were cast.
Mr. Skuse also stated that there
was a delegation of men represent
ing this county in Spokane yester
day and today where they are con
ferring with other committees of
20 wheat growing counties in re
gard to an agricultural program
which was to be presented to a
meeting of senators representing
four different states. The meeting
was held in the YMCA. building.
The representatives from this coun
ty included Fred Wilson and Loran
McClure of the Rattlesnake district
and C. C. Williams of the Locust

Bangs Testing
Work Proceeding
Rapidly in County
. .
The “area testing" in Benton
County for Bang’s disease being
handled by the two federal veter
inarians, Dr. T. D. Rosenhoff. work
ing out of Prosser, and Dr. 1... L.
Rush, working out of Kennewick. is
proceeding rapidly and the farmers
are cooperating very well in this
clean-up campugn.
Some farmers in the past did not
feel that there was much use in
having their animals tested when
there was contact with neighbors’
cattle which were not tested. The
compulsory features or this test now
take care or that situation, says W.
W. Skuse, county agent. Further:
more, the new amusement for re-}
imbursement oftentimes gives the
farmer nearly a full price for a re
actor anin'xal. q
The veterinarians state that due
to the large amount or testing done
over the past two years in this
county that even in the worst in
fested parts the percentage of re
actors is running very small com
pared to the original figures. This
is naturally to be expected, how
ever, as the same conditions held
true on the old 'l‘. B. campaigns and
while the cattle are tested for T. B.
every two years the last test show
ed less than one-fourth of one per
cent of animals affected.
