X* 'rf 22 Thursday, J»n. 6, 1M1 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE ELECTRIC CO-OP EXTENDS LINES; Farmer Can Now Obtain Service to Boost Food · Thompson -- The Winnebago - Rural Electric Co-operative Association, Thompson, completed 4 years of supplying electric service "to farmers and other rural consumers in this area Monday. Since the co-operative's lines were first energized in 1940, it has brought electricity at cost to 1,348 consumers who now are able to use power to help increase production o£ food for the war. .War Production Board regulations since January, 1943, have authorized the connection to rural power lines of.' nearby farms able to use electrical equipment in livestock, dairy and poultry production. Farms conencted to the co-operative's lines under the WPB : regulations use water pumps lor livestock, chick brooders, and ·other electrical labor-saving and food production devices. In. 1943 the co-operative built 25 miles of "rural electric extensions to serve 59 farmsteads. The co-operative already has on 'file an additional 100 farm appli-. cations for service which will be built in 1944 in order to help the farmers produce more food with less labor. It is necessary for the farmer to become certified by the ·local county war production board (before the co-operative is allowed to extend its service. The farmer has to show that by the use of electricity he will be able to produce more food for the war effort. The co-operative is attempting to build these extensions as quickly as possible in addtion to its regular line of maintenance along its 600 miles of line already in operation.
