r (Efto Jpftilabclpfua inquirer 41 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21. 1968 h Classified Ads Comics, Puzzle PAGE v. 1.1 I No Rate Cut Is Expected for City Gcis Users Commission Head Opposes Reduction ; Unless Substantial No rate reduction is in sight for th? 540,000 home and apartment customers of the Philadelphia Gas Works, according to the chairman of the gas comnission. ' Andrew N. Farnese on Tuesday said he would oppose a rate reduction unless it was substantial. He defined substantial as a $2 or more cut in the monthly gas till. Farnese said the commission has received an extensive report from the Gas Works, which is owned by the city, detailing the effect of a gas reduction ratn on the customer. COXCEAIS REPORT the report p iblic or even dis-' J cuss its detai s until it had been: reviewed. He said there may be! -J a special meeting to study thei report next n onth. j Farnese sa d he would oppose; 4 any move to reduce the ratesl for homeowners if the reduction would be only $6 a year. 1 1 . At the same time, Charles G.l Simpson, geieral manager off the Gas Works, reported that,! the company probably would. If break even when its 12-month period ends fin Sept. 1. He esti- m-ted next j ear's profit at $1.5 nvllion. " This was regarded as a an- J other reason why there would be no genersl rate redu-.tion. DORTONA'S IDEA l The proposal to determine if f the "little giy could be given a' break" was made by CityJ Council President Paul D'Or-i-4 tona, a commission member,'! before the election last Novem-; ber. Farnese said there was nothing "political" about the f prnposal. 1 As an alternative to a general ' rate reductnn, the commission might decide to ask the Gasi Works to pay the city a greater! annual return. The city collects $11.5 millior from the company now, and tiere has been talk that the cit v might ask for up to $6 millior. more annually. BENEFITS CITY The finar daily hard-hit city could use additional income from the g.-.s works. When the; city needed extra funds fori salary increases in 1966, the; rate was hiled to $11.5 from $7.2! iff tsscs Curtain Ciirw " , ' I- ' f :' , - -t I City Asks Cost Of Extending 'El' to Broomall Subway Link To Red Lion Rd.

Children and parents crowded the hallways and exhibition areas. They listened to their own voices on special machines. They had their pictures taken. They learned how paper is made and they watched dozens of other complicated processes. But where was the computer show? Where was the "unique and exciting exhibit which personally involves the visitors?" as the Institute billed it. Directions by guards indicated it was next to the luncheon area. But next to that area there were two doors that remained locked no matter how they were pounded or who called, "Anyone home?" Children knocked. Parents knocked. Finally one visitor walked down the ball and pushed on a door marked "Exit." Ah! It opened. Inside, two men were discussing the computer. There was no audience. It seems the computer was indisposed. "Just a minor adjustment. That's all it needs," one of the men assured the brash visitor. "It should be ready tomorrow. But if you want to be sure, come back Friday," he added. The visitor left and the man, taking no chances, carefully locked the door. THE EXHIBIT opened Monday. It promises to be a major new attraction. Eight mini-shows describe the history, the operation and the use of computers. Each visitor is given a plastic key card as admission to each of the mini-theaters. The card is inserted in a slot. That activates the display. At the end of each show a question lights up on the panel together with possible answers. At the end of the eight shows a scoring station tallies the visitor's score. The show was a hit Monday. Richie Allen Accuseds First Step OKd Of Punching Barman; Couldn't Get a Drink By ROBERT TERRY Of The Inquirer Staff By FRANCIS M. LORD AN Of The Inquirer Staff The city requested the Dela ware Valley Regional Plan ning Commission Tuesday to test the economic feasibility of extending the Market Street Elevated from the 69th Street Terminal to Broomall. a distance of five miles, and to nine other sites. The city also requested Immediate study of extending the Broad Street Subway from its future northeast terminal at ' Rhawn st. to Red Lion rd. The extension would be within the I 1 median of the Northeast Free way. Other priority rail extensions requested would be from the Penn Central Suburban Station to International Airport, and the extension of the Delaware River Port Authority's $8& million high-speed transit line to Moorestown and Willingboro in New Jersey. PROPOSALS APPROVED The proposals, which also included new key highway arteries within the city, were approved by the Planning Commission. a1 The request will now go di- rectly to the DVRPC. A spokesman for the regional agency estimated that it would Intake from three to six months to i: complete the study. The time-pj table for the lines if they are ideclared economically feasible f, would depend on the availability H!of funds, primarily Federal ; funds. f Edmund N. Bacon, executive :director of the City Planning p Commission, said the city want-fjed to test a variety of routes for f the future expansion of both f;rail and highway facilities. MEMO FROM SMALLWOOD A memo to the City Planning Commission from Streets Commissioner David M. Smallwood, a member of the DVRPC. said the Broomall extension should not be considered as all subway construction.

A second stepdaugnter was beaten on the head with a wooden mallet after she. grabbed the barrel of the rifle. She escaped through a rear , door of the house at 6073 Wister st. and ran to the borne of a neighbor. Moments later, the berserk man, Paul Jerome Jones, 61, was confronted by five police--men at the front door of the two - story, store - front row home. P a t r o lman Stanley Sklarz fired a shot accidentally, he said which passed close to Jones' head and lodged in a wall. . 'I SURRENDER' All right," Jones said. "That" it." With that he surrendered. In the second-floor front room, police found the body of Jones' wife, Marie, 47, in a pool of blood on the floor beside the bed. She had been shot in the abdomen and in the right and left chest. In the middle room, Jones stepdaughter, Mary Eubanks, 23, was dead in bed with her arms protectively around her 5-month-old son, Lawrence. BABY WOUNDED Police said a single bullet struck Mrs. Eubanks in the left shoulder and shattered on a downward course.
