Phone 928-2614 Titonka, Iowa We're in the same boat Everytime you go to the store, the cost of things is higher The peas or the peanut butter or something. It's the same with us. True, we may shop at a different place than you do, but the costs still keep rising just the same. For example, we remember when coal, with which we generate more than 75 per cent of our electricity, cost $5.83 a ton back in 1962. Today the cost is $20.31 a ton The cost of equipment, such as trucks which are needed to provide our customers with good service, has risen In 1962 a half ton pickup frock cost $1,900 Today the same type truck sells for $4,480 We paid $40.70 for a 40 - foot distribution pole in 1962. It's $103.75 today. A pound of copper wire cost $0.33 in 1962 It's $0.67 a pound today. Even insulators which hold the wire on our transmission lines are up from $3.15 in 1962 to $6.55 today. And taxes, both property and income, plus wages have gone up correspondingly. So you see, we're all in the same boat. Caught in the rising cost spiral. We've economized, grown more efficient, and tightened our belt. But, sooner or later, everybody runs out of notches
