Total cost of the program is estimated at about million, if the changes are accepted, by all 212 REA's in the area. FESL plans to send teams Into Hie area to approach the REA's cm the question. They hope to have tiiis completed by the end of the year. Completion of the actual changes in equipment would take about three years, The proposals, as outlined by FESL, are as follows: There will be no Increase in Calgary Power's farm revenue. Even- HEA custo m e r with a 7% KVA transformer, or larger, will be refunded ttie cost difference between his transformer and a 5 KVA transformer. All transformer changes will be financed from the existing REA deposit accounte, eliminating a capital outlay by the individual consumer. Farms with 3 KVA transformers will be provided with larger circuit breakers if nec-essary at no cost to the individual consumer, to raise the service to a 5 KVA rating. Excess footage charges will be eliminated except in those cases where tile excess footage exceeds two miles. Ir those cases the customer will pay only for the distance over to miles. A new rate schedule will be introduced. Under the sohame existing 3 KVA and KVA services will be combined for billing purposes. In addition, the "deposit and operating account contribirients will be incorporated into a new cost-per kilowatt hour rate, reducing all rural charges to a "pay-a.s-you-use" basis. AH new services will he installed with 5 KVA transformers or larger. To maintain the demsil account in a healthy condition and share change out costs equitably, consumers requiring increased capacity transform ers will tw encouraged to ga from 3 KVA to ICVA f.nd from 5 KVA to 10 KVA sizes. There is growing requirement for reliable three phase supply on the farm. Iri order to provide adequate facilities for these requirements in the future the company proposes to continue its policy of serving all three phase farm loads and major single chase services as Cailgary Power customers. An arrears charge of one per cent per month on the unpaid balance will be introduced on arrears accounts, replacing the existing 30 cents per month charee. REA operations will continue to be carried out on an actual cost basis.

T. Gale, vice president of Farm Electric Services Ltd. If approved by the Rural Electrification Assotiat ions, the changes would cost the farmer mare but give him better sendee, Mr. Gale said. The extra charge, am average of about a dollr month, would go mostly to elimine he operting deficits of the REA. Farm Electric Services is a r.on profit subsidiary f Calgary Power Ltd., with responsibility for Calgary Power's farm services. There would be no increase in payment to Calgary Power for the electricity it generates and distributes. Mr. Gale said the proposals would have wide spread beneficial affects on rural consumers. "The program was designed to iron out several problems in our farm service policy, and to offer a more flexible plan for serving the mdern farm." "It tcok only 20 years to electrify over 99 per cent of the farms in our service area. We now supply power to farms over miles of fanmers' lines. "It would have been impossible to carry out this program n so few years without the energetic support of the fanners, through their Rural Electrification Associations. "However, with this tremendous building program virtually completed, we are netering a new era. This phase offers a mere attractive and flexible power package to the Alberta farmer, without affecting the basic principle of sharing the costs among the members as eciuilablv as possible." 'The proposed chainges _ _ In DcDcy, which must be ratified by the 212 Rural Electrification AscciaKcns in the Calgary Power service area, are designed to overcome three major problems, a spokesman for Calparv Power said. One of these is the deficit in the operating account of tiie Rural Electrificafen Associa-tiraw. The operating account is used for the day-to-day upkeep of farm cower sea-vice. COSTS UP Spiralling costs are re-soonsible for tlhe c u r re n t deficit, which will likely reach million by the end of the year, the spokesman said. Another problem is the cost o'f new transformers. Under the proposed changes, all transformer chaoses will be financed from the existing -REA deuosit accounts, plimpjraSns a capital outlay by the individual consumer. Deoosit accounts are funds maintained by each REA to cover such Umffs ss wear atfd tear, storm damage and ob-soVsence. The changes are also ed to overcome the problem of providing larger rirciut break-iara to those farms needing them. There are 12 points contained in the proposed changes. A major one is the introduction of a new rate schedule. Under the scheme existing S KVA volt aimpsres) and 5 KVA services will be combined for billing purposes. Deposit and operating account contributions, now included For F each quarterly bffl, be Incorporated into a new cost-pcr-kilowatt-hour railfi. All rural charges would (hen be on a "pay-as-you-use" basis. This would mean, according to FESL averages, approximately one extra dollar per month for each user. This amount would go toward eliminating the deficit in tiie operating account.

Both on second reading and on an earlier opposition amendment, Speaker1 Ben Hanuschak voted to keep the New Democratic Party government's bill alive. The Speaker votes only to break a tie. The bill now is scheduled for detailed study in the public utilities committee where the government has a one-member majority, but an even tougher fight is expected to come on third and final reading. Mr. H a n u s c h a k, an NDP MLA, was forced to vote when the combined opposition solidly opposed the bill. With the help, it passed second approval in a 28-tc-27 margin. Earlier, Mr. Hanuschak's vote had helped defeat a Conservative amendment which would have postponed second reading for six months. HITS PRIVATE COMPANIES Under the bill, the government would be able to establish a basic, compulsory universal auto insurance plan to set its own regulations. Private companies would be able to sell coverage supplementary to the basic plan, but the government could also move into that area on a competitive basis.

Critic Claude Baigneres described the "poise" of ballerina Christine Hennessy as being "unrivalled throughout the world." Her acrobatic feats were on a level equal to those of Moscow's famed Bolshoi ballet company. In the last four weeks, Paris audiences have jammed the theatre nightly to watch the Canadians perform.
