Jan. 7.—The Pemi scot-Dunklin Electric Cooperative expects to start construction cf i 145 miles of additional lines in Pemiscot, Dunklin and New Mad- lid counties within two weeks-; Glenn Eaker. manager, said here today. Construction of the new lines, which will add 552 member- to the cooperative, will financed with a loan of $130,000 f re in the Rural Electrification Administration approved last November.

Eaker said. ""The others ire expected to have their homes wired by 'the time the lino, are constructed and energized." The cooperative on January 1st had 1700 members being served by 530 miles of lines. Following com- oletion of the additional l) will have 675 miles of line;; ing 2252 families living in tV.e rural areas of the three count ici. At present, consumption average 150> ~ GGO kilowatt hours per month. The growth of the cooperative is exceeding all expectations o: the directors. A year aftsr the electrical distribution group was organized in 1937. it had 290 miles oflines serving 580 families. "Now,' Eaker said, "the new substatior :cnstructed a year ago must b< -.nlarged within another year.": A a cost of-$10,000 and having a ca hroush which is received and dis- ributed all the electrical energy used by the er.Urc cooperative's membership, was designed to withstand expansion and demands made upon it for a period of fiv.' years. Capacity Must Be More "At present," Eaker said. "83 per cent of the equipment's capacity is being used. When the additional 552 families arc added following construction of the new lines, it becomes very clear that the capacity of the substation must be enlarged." Since last July, the cooperative's employees have conducted a membership drive which resulted i» 236 new members being connectcc fcr service fr~om existing lines up to December 18. Eaker pointed om "Ninety per cent of these farm lies are small farm tenants, share croppers and farm day labor fami lies who do .not own their homes, he said.
