Past accomplishments and suggestions for future improvements in these services Are outlined Here in the following year end Story a by Stanley Winborne North Carolina utilities commissioner written for the associated press Raleigh Jan. 3.�? up a the year 1938 has been one of Ever increasing activity along All lines of the Utility commissions work. As has been the Case for several years past the growth of All the utilities Over which the commission has jurisdiction has been so pronounced that the business of the commission has attained new and larger proportions. Reductions have been ordered in the rates charged by numerous utilities service has been improved and extended into new territory and the foundation Laid for continued Progress in 1939. Dlr ctr try on the first Day of january 1938, the commission again began reductions in electric rates and has continued these reductions throughout the year. Every major electric Power company in the state has reduced its rates during 1938. The Durham Public service company has made two reductions. The most outstanding reductions were those of the Duke Power company which gave an annual reduction of >838.000 in March and that of the Carolina Power and Light company in the headache condition do sluggish Bowel it you think a laxative Art alike.

Jss3�> a Quick Relief amount of 1716.000, which was announced last week. The remarkable thing about these reductions is that in each instance they have followed reductions of considerable size. Which have been made from year year since 1932. The aggregate amount of All the reductions in electric rates which have Heen made for the year 1938 in $1,803,-700, based on the actual consumption of electricity and the rates charged therefor in 1937. The new rates of the Carolina Power and Light company which have just Bee i procured Are i among the lowest in the nation and were not regarded As possible a few years ago. With the present Low electric rates prevailing in most parts of the state the main deterrent the free use of electricity is the financial inability of the people Purchase the appliances use electricity. Just As the Cost of an automobile is the determining Factor in the purchasing of a car rather than the Cost of the gasoline. So is the Cost of appliances and not the Cost of electricity the main limitation on the use. Thousands of Homes in North Carolina Are without the conveniences afforded by electricity simply because of Lack of Money buy appliances. The present Cost of electric current is negligible compared with the Cost of major appliances. It is in the appliance Field therefore that the Federal government has the greatest Opportunity expand the use of electricity Lessen Drudgery and provide the conveniences which electricity brings. The building or plants and transmission lines in new or inadequately served territory is All right but it would be far More sensible assist the people in purchasing appliances use the electricity now St their doors than it is contribute millions of dollars in Grants for the construction of new generating plants in sections where already there a a surplus of electricity sufficient Supply increasing demands for years come. Telethon us in the fall of 1937 there was a decided downward trend in Telephone income which continued for about six months in 1938. The last half of this year however has shown a decided upturn in Telephone business and at the close of the year there Are More telephones in use in North a Arolina than at any other time in the history of the state. There have Heen reductions Here and there in Telephone rates but the outstanding thing in connection with Telephone is the improvement in service. Of the 24 8 Telephone exchanges in nor h Carolina. 109 of them Are automatic dial exchanges Aud in h great Many cases these automatic exchanges have replaced Magneto and common Battery exchanges and have provided 2 4 hour service in Small towns which heretofore had limited service. Many Miles it Rural lines have been constructed and the commission is planning for greater development in Rural telephones in the future. Motor transportation the growth of motor vehicle transportation has exceeded our most Liberal expectation. In th1 year 1937. 3.390.000 passengers were carried by the various bus lines Between Points in North Carolina and while we have not the exact figures for 1938, we know that there were More passengers than in 1937. Of i remarkable and Gratifying that not a single passenger was fatally injured dining the year. The growth of the bus Busi Ness has been so rapid that it has outstripped its station facilities and the commission is endeavouring As rapidly As possible improve the bus terminals throughout the state. During the year 1938 24 new bus stations have been completed four others have been remodeler and six More authorized. The commission is planning new stations in Many other towns hut it must be realized that everything desirable cannot be accomplished immediately due the fact that the building of bus station necessitates Tho outlay of Large amounts of Money. During 4938 franchises were granted connecting Many new j Points in North Carolina and making it possible for people travel by bus from the mountains the sea without change. Bus equipment deteriorates rapidly and the companies Are constantly required replace worn out or obsolete equipment. This replacement Call not be accomplished at once due the Cost.
