THIS WRITER sort of hates to spoil your holidays with a news item that seems to have 'cropped up* on the scene, but the United Nations has really DONE SOMETHING, only this time we figure they have moved in the WRONG DIRECTION.. .and at the WRONG TIME! But our solons in Washington, feeling the spirit of Christmas. . .and giveaway again, have gone for it; hook, line and sinker, to use an old pre Civil Rights 'get ready* for (?) fishing. And we stand united with a certain Representative from Iowa, who terms the United Nations the "MOOCHERS SOCIETY". . , WHAT'S THE HUBUB ABOUT? Well, it seems the splendif- . erous Tower of Babel called the United Nations building, built by the United States in order to be sure we would be 'host' to the nations of the world is not large enough. . .and a proposal was made to build a NEW ONE, as soon as a site could be found, in order that the U.N. WOULD NOT have to be moved to another country.. Ha! Ha! Pardon the levity, but this seems to be a rather poor joke at this time; no nation in the world, would want to build it, then pay most of the rent throughout the years, while the rest of the nations, not all, but most, take pot shots at you! NEW YORK CITY, which has had enough money trouble in the past to do a LIFETIME, would have to shell out, in addition to YOU, the taxpayer!' Naturally we would have to BORROW the money to meet the bill, but then in this day of IDIOT CARDS, laughingly called 'aids to the spender', where CHARGE means TO YOU, not a warlike term, they probably would tab it "United Nations" Medicare! . AND CAN YOU IMAGINE the concern of certain forces in Washington, and the U.N., if we did not build the slab of Masonry, laughingly called UNITED? The rude, insolent, cloak and dagger Commies would have to INSULT people in another country, when after all, over here, they can get away with it much better, especially the Russ! Let's don't fool ourselves, other countries don't want to PUT UP. . .and they know when they have a FALL "GUY! HOW MUCH? Well the cost would be about $63.13 per square foot. WHY DO THEY WANT the new building, when after all, the major work through the years performed by them, has been about enough to fill a bachelor's quarters of about three rooms? Lack of space they claim. What they are really after, is a U.N. building with space enough for the more than thirty PRIVATE CLUBS now INTACT, to have a room for each. We note there is one for SELF DEFENSE. . .one that Uncle Sam should have used years ago, against this carnival of louts, who spend OUR MONEY, the vote AGAINST US on the side of IVAN.. who at times owes enough to build a new building for them, or at least a parking garage for the overlords! ~ WE DON'T THINK they need Chess Clubrooms, Cricket Clubrooms, Gun Clubrooms, Radio Clubrooms, etc; but the House does. . .and they voted 152 to 134 to give it to them, at a time when-we are faced with a monetary problem that should make them blush, if this is possible! THE UNITED NATIONS at this time, according to the latest • reliable report, has $200 MILI ION in delinquent dues. Why not latch onto this, and let the American taxpayer lick the wounds he has in peace? We don't know, but would be willing to bet that some of that money is OWED by the SOVIET UNION. We also . would recommend that delinquent members either 'pay up' or get outl That might save the world, especially Uncle Sam a wad of both trouble and money! AND INCIDENTLY, did the Congress protect the people who elected them? They did not; they voted AYE! Shucks, after all, some of the Congressmen figured all the U.N. wanted was $20 MILLION to get the BOONDOGGLE off the ground! ADAIR and ROUDEBUSH did not vote! Voting against were Bray, Langgrebe, Myers, Zion. . .plus.Andy Jacobs from the DEMO side. Voting for the DONATION were Brademus, Hamilton and Madden and G O P DENNIS! BoyI This was no EMPTY SOCK for Christmas, it was LOADED. . .and guess who is the winner? If this really disturbs you, while we are in an inflationary period, when all senators and representatives should bg SAVING us money, tell it to Washington, and tell it like it is! If you don 't... blame yourself, when,both the WELL RUN DRY.. .and there is no PRIMER leftl ADVISE MR. HARTKE and Mr. Bayh, in addition to your REPRESENTATIVE. Tell them that sending good money after BAD is not your idea of statesmanship.. .and advise that all UNITED. NATION MEMBERS PAY UP before a dime is advanced of the bill is made into law. You might also advise, that perhaps a move by the United Nations to another country, might just be in order; after all, we don 't want to HOG it all, especially when it comes to paying the tab for those who mock the very club they belong to. . .and are remiss in their dues! IT SEEMS TO ME IF PARENTS CANNOT CONTROL children in the home, it does seem like quite a chore for the government to control them on the streets. Gas Company Announces Revenue Increases ' In its 25th anniversary year,Indiana • Gas Company realized substantial increases in revenues and earnings according to the utility's Annual Report to shareholders. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 1970, revenues amounted to $50,058,711, an increase of $9,416,625, or .23.2%. and net income amounted to $5,708,258, an increase of $1,869,546, or 48.7% over the previous year. Earnings per share of common stock reached $3.07 compared with S2.CS in 1969. The Company-commenced operations 25 years ago, on September 1, 1945, under the name Indiana Gas & Water Company, Inc. On that date it purchased, gas and water utility properties in Indiana which had been operated for many years by predecessor companies. The corporate name was changed to Indiana Gas Company,.Inc. in 1967 following the sale of "the last water properties. The Company's progress during its first quarter century as a corporate entity is indicated by the following: gas revenues increased from $3,701,171 in 1946 to $50,058,711 in 1970; earnings • per share of common stock increased from $.52 to $3.07; total gas customers increased from 60,974 to 164,347, while space heating customers advanced from 3,649 to 146,054; the number of communities served increased from 42 to 126; and utility plant increased from $13,591,.280 to $98,511,355. - For fiscal year 1970, total operating expenses of $42,251,346 were up 20.9% over the pre- vius year. The cost of natural gas purchased from pipeline suppliers, which accounts for 53.8% of total operating expenses, amounted to $22,740,897, an increase of $3,317,173 or 17.1%. The total of all taxes paid during the 1970 fiscal year was $8,396,901 which is $2,297,466, or 37.7% higher than for 1969. Colder than normal weather and rate adjustments accounted . for much of the improvement in revenues and earnings in the 1970 fiscal year. Winter weather during the year was 7.1% colder than normal and 8.1% colder than the previous twelve months. As . of September 30, 1970, 89%ofthe 164,347 customers served by the company used gas for space heating purposes. The 'number of space heating customers increa- • sed 5,861 or 4.2% over the same date a year ago. . A general rate increase that was placed in effect on June 3, 1969 ;had little influence in the 1969 fiscal year because it was not in effect during the heating season; however, it was in effect during the full 1970 fiscal year. In addition, following an emergency rate proceeding, rate adjustments authorized by the Public Service Commission of Indiana were made effective on December 13, 1969 and January 12, 1970 to offset respective increases in costs for gas purchased from pipeline suppliers. The Annual Report indicates the Public Service Commission has under investigation the matter of permitting a purchased gas^ rate-tracking' provision in the rate tariffs of the gas utilities in Indiana. On December 11, subsequent to the printing of this report, the Commission issued an order which authorized- each gas utility in Indiana, including Indiana Gas Company, to recover increases, and to pass on reductions, in the cost of gas purchased from interstate pipeline suppliers by making appropriate adjustments in existing customer rate schedules. Such rate adjustments may be made following an informational filing, with the Public Service Commission, and would become effective thirty days after the date of filing, subject to the Commission's approval. ' Although gas consumption in the nation has been increasing significantly in recent years, exploration and drilling by producers has declined sharply, placing the industry in a "shortage" position. Very large reserves of natural gas exist in the United States, but wellhead prices must furnish incentives for producers to increase exploration and development activities. The gas industry is confident that so-, lutions to the supply problem will be found under new federal regulatory policies that are now being effected. The Company's pipeline suppliers have indicated that additional volumes of gas cannot be contracted with them after November 1, 1970 until their reserve situation improves. The Company expects its supply of purchased gas, supplemented by the use of its underground stor- ' age facilities and peaking plants, will be adequate for its present firm customers and for normal residential and commercial growth. However, it will be forced to limit the amount of gas for new large applications. The Company's common stock was listed on the New York Stock Exchange ownership and increase investor interest in the Company. Previously its 1,862,371 shares of common stock had been traded only in the over- the-counter, markets * State Safety (Continued from page one) to believe an offense contributing to the accident has been committed. * Temperatures (Continued from page one) Wayne, 29 and 16, and Terre 1 Haute, 28 and 14. Lafayette had a high of 26 and Evansville's low was 15. Precipitation during t h e period ending this morning was light, with onlz Fort Wayne registering snow. The forecast called for little chance of precipitation except in the north. Fort Wayne, however, had what the rest of the state missed. Eight of inches of snow was the depth iii the northeastern Indiana community at 7 a.m. The extended outlook called for variable cloudiness Wednesday and Thursday with a chance of rain in the .-southern two-thirds of the state Thursday and snow" in the north. It was expected to warm up a little Thursday and become fair Friday. * Regular Rabies (Continued from page three) If the animal is identified and the owner can verify the pet has been vaccinated against rabies, danger to the individual is minimized' 1 and treatments may not be necessary. Children, especially, should be warned against petting stray dogs.' They also should be cautioned about picking up or petting wild animals, such as squirrels, chipmunks, etc.. When wild animals come near humans, they are acting unnaturally; and unnatural behavior in all animals is one of the first signs of rabies. Teach children how to handle and care for dogs and cats. Do not permit children to bother- pets that are eating. Be particularly careful in handling injured or sick animals. Keep the face away from the animal's head at all times. If someone you know is bitten by an animal, make sure the identity of the animal, is learned and maintained. Wash the wound with sdap .and water as soon as possible. Then contact the local health officer, veterinarian, or your family physician for further instructions. In Indiana this year, more cases of rabies have been reported in wild animals (skunks and foxes) than in any of the demoesticated animals, Wein- land says. So protect your pet by seeing that it is vaccinated regularly. This also protects you, your family, friends and neighbors. 5. Expand' and improve the State's, private and high school driver education . programs to provide a high quality course of training to every eligible student and out-of-school youth. . A. E. Huber, executive director of the Indiana Traffic Safety Council, Inc., indicated that several representatives of the Council have been actively working with both the State Traffic Safety Advisory Committee (the interim legislative study committee, for traffic safety) and the Governor's Motor Vehicle Bureau Task Force in developing recommendations for improvements in Indiana's highway safety program. The Safety Council will develop material for the public media and organization meetings in conducting a program of public information regarding the priority traffic safety legislative needs.
