VINDICATOR AND REPUBLICAN, ESTHEEVILLE, IOWA, THURSDAY, MAY 25, 1939" D. E. K. TO COST $785 PER MILE (Continued From Page One) The Joslyn Manufacturing Co. will furnish 79 carloads of poles. Aluminum Company of America will furnish about 665 miles wire, and the Moloney Electric Company will ship 434 transform ers, ranging from 1% kva to kva. Construction of these lines will provide nearly 43,000 man hours of employment in direct labor alone. REA allotted $5,000 to the D. E K. Rural Electric Co-operative last week to be re-lent to finance individual members' installations of wiring and plumbing. The cooperative will determine just how the money will be available; and in general, their terms on which it will re-lend the funds. REA requires, however, that the individ ual notes shall not finance more than 80% of the cost of any installation, and die money must be repaid in not more than five years. At least two payments year must be made. Although the co-operative. will pay about 3% on the money owed, the rate to individual borrowers must be higher, in order to meet the expense of collection, bookkeeping, and so on. REA suggests that individual notes be made at 69c annual interest on the unpaid balance. All who wish to get service from the new lines should sign up for it at once and make arrangements for wiring and plumbing installations. The route of the line is now being laid out, and the network is planned to reach areas where enough member service contracts have been signed to make construction economically feasible. If insufficient contracts have been signed in any particular area, the lines will be routed another way. ' Experience has indicated .that usually a number of requests foi service come in after construction has started. These requests cannot ordinarily be granted until the contractor finishes building the project as planned and laid out before his crews arrive. Priority must be accorded those lines for which service contracts are signed up early. Construction of other lines must depend upon the availability of funds after the mam projects built. V.R. The reason it is easier for Great Britain to build a defensive bloc of small nations in Europe than it is for Germany to do the same thing is that Great Brittain has the most money to lend.
