A revised and lowered schedule of electric power rates in Blytheville by May 1 wns promised Ihe city council this morning by C. V. Sebausjh, sales manager of the Arkansas-Missouri Power company, appearing before Ihe body in response to an order lo show cause why electric rates should not lie reduced. Mr. Sebaugh said that rates over the Arkansas-Missouri Power company's entire system, in southeast Missouri and northeast Arkansas, would be lowered by May 1 lo conform with mi order of Ihe Missouri Public Service commission. While the commission's order wll be effective only as to Missouri properties of the company, Mr. Sebaugh said that similar reductions would be made In Arkansas communities served by the company. He. said that cilies and towns served by the company will be divided into Ihrec groups, with the group containing the larger cities and towns securing the biggest reduction and the other groups accordingly. As Blythe- vllle is the biggest city in the company's territory, it follows that the largest cul will be made in the group of cities Including Blytheville.

He referred ' to the cut of June, 1933, a compromise result of litigation ...over rate re- oucllon, and the "strictly voluntary, cut of September, 1934 He said that as a result of the two cuts city consumers using 20 KWH (kilowatt hours) now pay $i 7o n s compared to $2.20 prior to the reductions; 30 KWH, $2.30 compared (o $3.15; 40 KWH, $280 compared o $3.9s; 60 KWH, $5.15 compared to $3.50; 100 KWH, $4.70 compared lo $6.15 and 200 KWH $770 compared lo $10.73.
