More Utility Users Than Ever This Year There weie iw major earthquakes the United BY SAM DAWSON NEW YORK, Ml —The first joggle in the upward march of the ultili- tios is being recorded on the seismographs in the industrial centers. But the electric and gas peddlers count on the homeowner to flip more light switches and turn on more sas jets than ever this year enough more to overcome any slowdown in industrial power, light and heat usage. The stock market prices have risen moderately this year. This industry's plans to expand still further in 1954 are untouched so far, at least publicly, by recession talk. '. Industry spokesmen contend that profits in 1954 should be as good as in 1953, when an outsize major*, ity of companies registered gains,' with an average increase pf 14 pet- cent. But the spokesmen are count' ing on more rate increases to make this forecast work out. The few gas and electric companies to report a drop in earnings in 1953 say this trend should be corrected as soon as public authorities get around to allowing rate increasesr—which, the companies complain, lag behind the rise in operating and distubutmg costs. Utility customers, of course, mayj feel that rates are high enough now' to cover costs aiy; jeas>onable pio- fits and jetiun on investments, and still leave enough for needed expansion of facilities. ce»U - a.l perhaps significantly, is the only one in the United States today where power usage is falling behind that of a year ago. This region extends from Pittsburgh westward through Ohio, into Indiana and lower Michigan, It is a region of much publicized layoffs, production cutbacks and rise in jobless totals. Elsewhere, the Ediaon Electric Institute reports power out put still oui'uns the year ago figures, oven if the spread is smaller now than a few weeks ago. This goes along with Lhc prediction of the institute's president, Walter H. Sammls, head of Ohio Kdison co,, that the one setback the industry fears is in factory usage. He points out that utility company sales of 'residential current now makes up 42 per cent of their revenues on average. With new household appliances coming out, and being sold even though at a reduced rate, he feel.3 that residential revenues will rise and offset any industrial drop. The utilities did very well in 1953. With 63 companies reporting so far, all but five showed gains in net income after taxes. Combined, the 63 had earnigs of $1,133,581,8554, a gain of 13.7 per cent in profits over 1952. The 15 utilities use in the Associated Press stock price index with only three showing declines 1952 recorded combined gains of 15.2 per cent in from profit 1953. The AP 'utility sotck price index incidentally, went up only ono half of 1 per cent during 1953, while the companies were making these nice profits. But since the first of this year— and since the utility companies' good earning reports began coming in— stock mai-kct buying has advanced the utility stock price index by 2.9 per cent. In general utility stock prices are about, one- fourth, higher now than before World W al ' '!!• LET THE ACOUSTICON MAN HELP SOLVE H you hare « Hearing Problem you are cordially jnvited to come in for a FREE test of yqur hearing.
