An agreement on Trieste would remove a major stumbling block toward agreement on peace treaty terms for Italy. The report of the experts on Trieste may be submitted to the Ministers Saturday.

This huge new building and construction program, according to Mr. Hill, will transform a great deal of long and careful "postwar planning" into "postwar action." Already many crews of men. including a large per centage of war veterans, have been employed by the company to carry out the program. This $1,000.000 expenditure will cover construction of several hundred miles of electric lines, including 110,000 volt and 33.000 von transmission lines as well as many miles of smaller lines. "In addition lo the new lines lo be constructed." Mr. Hill said, "all existing lines nnd equipment are being carefully examined and tested and, where necessary, are being rebuilt, repaired or replaced. Much service work that was hampered by wartime shortages of manpower and materials. Is now rapidly being carried out." . Several large substations arc to be built B nd n cw automatic switching devices are to be in- slailed at several points in the company's - system in order to eliminate as many service Interruptions as possible. However, since many critical materials arc still scarce, It Is anticipated thai at east two years will be required to complete the program, it v. announced. Every town served by the com- pny will receive the benefits of improved electric service when the program Is completed.
