The basso is electricity. Its price was low when war began — and has stayed (here. In fact, it directly reversed the rising trend of other costs. Government figures show (hat the average price of electric service lias actually declined during the war period! That's news, these 'days. It's the product of sound business management, plus the hard work jof your friends and neighbors in this self-supporting,' tax-paying company. And it's the promise of plentiful, low* priced electricity to run the modern marvels you'll have in your home after the war.
