Jr., president of the Ark-Mo Power Company, today said Hint he knew of no agreement ever having been made to provide n "master meter" for the Blythevillc Housing Project to give occupants when the project is completed, aii electric rate more favorable than other residential consumers In Blylhci'ille. "To do so," said Mr. HIM. "would In our opinion, be discrimimttni against the other residential user" here simply because the housing unit is to IK financed by the fctl- eral government. "Our standard residential rates arc set up and approved by the Arkansas Public Service Commission on a basis of furnishing this and other classes of service at the lowest irassible rate consistent with earning a fair rate of return on the money Invested in our business and," continued Mr. Hill, "we feel that to offer a special rate to one group of 'preferred 1 customers *'ould be grossly unfair." Mr. Hill slated that the Federal Housing Authority office In Forl Worth had repeatedly tried to "pressure" the company into filing a "special" rate for the project and Ihnt authority officials had been fully advised of the reasons for not allowing "preferential rates" for the project here. He added, however, thai his company stands ready at all times to work with the local housing authority to render any service that might expedite completion of the local project. "The Arkansas Public Service Commission, which represents the people of this state in matters pertaining to our rates, is. of course the regulating authority in this matter of electric rates for the Kytheville Housm* Ptojett, and *e shall abide by their decision at th* ,«*]>(. » hMrlm*," Mr. Hill S nM | received from a candy vendor at a said she th'c. truck and assaulted her.
