Mr. Januszkiewicz said snow during a period from Feb. 13 through March 8 had cost the city $27,612.54, not including labor and equipment furnished by the water and sanitation department. The service director told Council he was making the report for their study "because in the next few days we are facing another crisis concerning the finances of the maintenance and repair department." He said the latest snow cost the city 13,403.85 and listed the cost of labor in the clean-up operations from Feb. 13 as $16,357.31. He re-' ported snow moving e q u i p m ent rental cost $5,984. ' Later in the meeting Auditor Thomas McDonald told Council he had just enough funds in the maintenance and repair for one more payroll "and a little more." He said he was making the report iso Council would "know that 'you're going to have to do something." The city recently borrowed $50,-000 to bolster the sagging funds of the maintenance and repair department. It was estimated the borrowed funds would carry the department through to the first of May. A Valley Gas Firm Cites Huge Loss Manager Asks PUC For Increase to Meet High Costs COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP^-Ohio Valley Gas Co. lost more than a million dollars in its Steubenville dishiet *last year, I. L. Briscoe of Columbus, manager of the company's rate department, told the Publir Utilities Commission. Briscoe testified during the first day cf hearings on the company's request for an emergency increase in rates. The hearing is continuing today. The Steubenville district covers Belmont, Columbiana, Harrison, Jefferson and Monroe counties, and the proposed rate increase would apply to natural gas serv ice in the homes and businesses of about 43,000 customers. Ohio Valley, which also serves an Ironton district about 100 miles away, took over the Steubenville district at the start of 1959 from Manufacturer's Light & Heat Co Both are subsidiaries of the Co-Columbia Gas System Inc. Revenue Fell Off When taxes and other factors are included, Briscoe testified, Ohio Valley's revenues fell $1,091,129 short of meeting costs last year In filing for the emergency increase two months ago, company President Allan W. Lundstrum wrote (he commission that "increased costs of furnishing natural gas service make this step necessary." Morton Lewis of New York, assistant treasurer of Columbia Gas, recommended the commission approve a 6.75 percent rate of return. John H. Zerbe of Akron, repre cept in isolated instances, to boast of a record of which we can sincerely be proud." Crusade to Sell Safety Dr. Irvine called for a "crusade to sell safety" spelling out the letters of the word and placing a meaning on each letter. He termed "c" the need for a better concept of selling safety and accident prevention by placing the meaning of safety into life's pattern. He said "r" was for resourcefulness in presenting safety in a manner ail can understand. The letter "s" was for sensitivity to the needs of the people in presenting a safety program, the speaker pointed out. He called "a'' the ability to learn and adopt that learning in the field of safety. Dr. Irvine said "d" the sixth letter was for desire to serve fellow-man and the letter "e" he said stood for enthusiasm, the kind that makes people interested in saving the lives of others by proper safety methods. Finally, he returned to the letter "u" which he had omitted. He (Turn to AWARDS on Page 2) President Reports on Tour Ike SaysS. American JJ. S. Relations 'High WASHINGTON (AP) - President Eisenhower says relations between the United States and Latin America have reached "an all-time high." But a growing diplomatic storm with the Fidel Castro government of Cuba provided a sharp exception to the general picture Eisenhower painted in a nationwide television address Tuesday night. Eisenhower made no reference to Cuba as he reported to the American people on his 15,560-mile tour of four South American countries. Despite the excellent relations he reported, he said there were some notable exceptions. , "An even firmer partnership must be our goal," he added. Statement Rejected Shortly before he spoke, Cuba rejected as insulting a statement by Secretary of State Christian A, Herter Monday denouncing implications by Castro that U.S. sabotage may have been involved in last week's explosion of an ammunition ship in Havana. Herter had called the accusation "baseless, erroneous and misleading," and said it raised questions of the Castro regime's desire for better relations with this country. Cuba fired back Tuesday night a protest "against the aggressive tone derogatory to our national dignity." Foreign Minister Raul Roa insisted that Cuban representatives must be addressed with "absolute respect. . . without descending to offensive utterances of a personal character." The State Department declined immediate comment. In his speech, Eisenhower called that despite the progress made in Lenting East Liverpool, Steuben-reducing the number of industrial vill6j Martins Ferry, Wells ville accidents "we are not able, ex-.|'BeUalre and other communities objecting to the increase, will present his arguments after the company case, as will Robert White of Cincinnati, counsel for a group of industrial customers. Ralph N. Mahaffey, former chief examiner for the commission and now an attorney for Ohio Valley said a lower wholesale rate approved by the Federal Power Commission for Manufacturer's Light � Heat-from which Ohio Valley gets most of its gas - means Ohio Valley can ask for less than originally supposed. The present rate, he said, is 15.426 cents per 100 cubic feet for the first 1,000 cubic feet, 7.625 cents per 100 for the next 4,000, and 7.425 per 100 for all over 5,000. New Rate Cited The new rale, Mahaffey explained, is one cent less per 1,000 cubic feet ineach step than one proposed by the utility in January. It is 29.0 cents per 100 cubic feet for the first 1,000, 7.7 for the next 99,000, 7.4 for the next 200,000, 5.725 for the next 5,000,000, 5.4 for next 18,000,000, and 4.4 for the next 200,000,000. Mahaffey said it represents a 75 percent increase, or about $298,60 a year, compared with a 16 percent, $1,200,000 increase first proposed two months ago. hoiL, CONTROL SUfnatVISORS.

'Misunderstandings' He stressed repeatedly that "serious misunderstandings" still impede the development of the best possible relationships between this country and its neighbors to the south. His speech set forth no new policy or specific proposals for dealing with Latin American problems although he declared this country's intentions to do what it can to help them speed their industrial development. Diversification of agriculture and industry, Eisenhower said, would help many of the countries which depend for their economic well being largely on a single product, such as coffee. 2 Suspects Face Robbery Charges The Steubenville police reported the.' plan to file robbery charges today against Michael Noonan, 20, of 451 Railroad Ave. and Joe Kon-iski 21, of 716 North St. The pair is being held as suspects in the beating and robbing of George Loschiavo, 44, of 324 S. 4th St. Monday morning in the 100 block of S.
