Bureau and other farm leaders', the electric companies of the state, and the Public Utiiiies Commission, Connecticut's farm electrification 1 rbgram -s now substantially complete. Of the 22,241 Connecticut farms listed by the United. States Census Bureau, less than 7Q do not have electric service available, according to an announcement today by A. V. S. Lindaley, vice-president of The Connecticut Light and Power Co. Connecticut is the first of the nation's states to reach substantially 100 per cent rural elecrif!- catiori, after having set the- pace for the other 47 states in the percentage of farms electrified for many years. Two-thirds, or 14,618 of the to)wl farms listed for the state are in the territory supplied with electricity by The Connecticut Light and Power Co. Mr. Lindsley states tlikt of this nuiiiber" of farms, all but 35 have electric service available. Of this 35 the owners of 19 were offered service within the last few years but, for various reasons, were not ready to wire their farms. Six ot the farms are located In places that are at present inaccessible for line construction, and the, remaining 10 will have electric tin us run to them within'the next few months. Mr. lindsley, who has work«d closely with the County Fai Bureau agents and other farm leaders during the last 25 years, has given major credit for 'the accomplishment to the enthusiastic cooperation of the farm group, not only for the high percentage of farms with eelctric service' available, but also for the far above average use made of electricity in labor saving conveniences' on tlw farm and in the farm home. He stated that the average r- sumption on farms served by Tne Connecticut Ligh and Power Co. is twice that of the average for farms located east of he Rockies, according to the latest available published statistics, he said. The statistics for these farms also indicate that the average rate paid by 'the Connecticut farms is 18 per cent lower than the average paid by the farms served by other business-managed electric companies, and 24 per cent lower than trie average rate paid by farms served by federal government financed Rural Electrification Administration cooperatives, ' Mr. Lindsley called attention to the fact that Connecticut's record in farm electrification has been established without financial HS- sistance from the REA or any other federal agency. The "same is tr'ie for Massachusetts and Rhode Island, both nearing completion of their farm electrification programs. PASSENGER TOTAL, Chicago—The U.
