The Columbia System, serves customers in Kentucky, Maryland, New York, Ohio; Pennsylvania, Virginia^and West Virginia. Under the program, all the system's interstate production and transmission operations would be handled by a single company subject to regulation by the Federal Power Commission. Distribution of gas in each of- the seven states would be operated By a different firm regulated by state or municipal authorities. Most of Columbia's companies now operate as both transmission and distributing companies. "Thus," a Columbia announcement said, "when the cost of gas to" Columbia is increased and it becomes necessary for the purchasing company to file for new rates, there is a 'chain reaction' effect throughout the system." Giving an example, Columbia increase in rates by only one of Columbia's wholesale suppliers "could mean that system companies would have to make even separate filings with the ^ederal Power Commission, 11 vith various state commissions, and numerous renegotiations at, the municipal level- in Ohio, where most rates are fixed bj local rdinance." Columbia said it and its companies now spend "hundreds of housands of dollars annually on hese multiple filings—d o 11 a r s vhich add to the consumer's cost of service." The reorganization, outlined at a meeting here today with represen- atives of the FPC and vario state regulatory bodies, will take time to effect. Columbia said it Ann Page SALAD DRESSING 39c qt.

Their work will DC directed by Earl Slider, Mexico Farms, who will represent the local on the safety committee being named by the Cumberland Building and Construction Trades Council for the big construction job. Slider will direct the work of 10 proctors—one for each crew— who will be charged with: the safety of each man in the crew for a two-week period. Then the job will be passed on Welfare Agency Asks Funds For 20 Case Workers to another member of the crew so that each man will become orming of five new subsidiary companies—four of which will be 'of a temporary nature." Each step will require approval of the appropriate regulatory bodes—including the FPC, the Securities and Exchange Commission, seven state commissions and the eternal Revenue Service. The system said the proposed reorganization partly was made necessary by a shifting of its main sources of gas from the Appalachian area to the Southwest. With 76 ser cent of its supply coming from .he Southwest fields,' Columbia said, that gas now must be passed rom company to company before it reaches its final destination— thus bringing about the involved chain .reaction" rate increase proceedings. : Columbia's state-by-state breakdown of the .ultimate picture included, the following: Maryland—Cumberland .and Allegheny Gas Co. would continue to serve retail customers; United Fuel would take over all production and xansmission facilities of that firm and the Maryland holdings of Atlantic Seaboard. Pennsylvania — Manufacturers Light and Heat would continue to serve all of the retail customers, turning over its production and transmission properties to United Fuel. West Virginia—A new subsidiary would be formed to handle all retail sales within the-state, acquiring the distribution facilities of United Fuel, Manufacturers, Cum berland and Allegheny and Amere with United Fuel assuming all.the production, storage and transmis sion operations.
