PAGE 12-CHILUCOTHE, MISSOURI--64601 CHILLICOTH'E CONSTITUTION-TRIBUNE, MONDAY, JUNE 23, mo Co-ops ready to call Peak Alert, if it's needed Missouri's rural electric cooperatives have not set a .sst(-rn peak or "i'eak Alert" in nearh a year and a half. 'I Ins l a c t , according to the ASMH lation of Missouri Elect r i c Cooperatives, is mainly due to r e l a t i v e l y mild weather and the e f f e c t i v e n e s s of c n c i g v c o n s e r v a t i o n mi'tisuii's I IU-A all indications ae [ x m i t i n g to a new, KKC system pe.ik t h i s summer f t IS possible the w i l l take a bigger j u m p ever before, which w o u l d d r i v e u p electric rates \'.ilham A l l h n - d e , manager ol t h e C h i l l i c o l h e based I'.i r r n e i s' K l e c t r i c ( o o p e i a 11 v e. t o l d the C o i i s i i i u t i o r i Tribune that his cooperative has not had a Peal?Alert since last August. "In March, we had some extremely cold days, and we came within six kilowatts of l a s t A u g u s t ' s p e a k , " h e said."Had we exceeded that, we would have set a new peak, which we wouiu have to pay for for 12 months." Altheide explained that extremes ol hot or cold weather can cause a state-wide Peak Alert, which is monitored by t h e A s s o c i a t e d K l e c t r i c Cooperative of Springfield "When they see the load approach 10 percent of the previous year's peak, then word of the I'eak Alert is spread across the s t a t e through the media " Altheide stated that the peak demand dictates how big and what capacity the lines must have, causing a higher cost for electricity "A good example would be a train of 200 cars, which are bought to haul a load for several months Then, you only need 100 cars to haul the load, but you still have 200 cars, which have to be paid lor " The example brings to mind the television spot of recent years from the Missouri KKC's, which illustrated the peak demand situation as aV model train which was forced' to carry a load too heavy lor it, causing the t r a i n to stall. As in the past, the coopera- lion of flEC members in responding to Peak Alert announcements can minimize the impact of this new peak. The way Peak Alert saves consumers money is by reducing the highest load 'or peak demand) for electricity. Electric rates are based on these peak demand periods because a u t i l i t y has to main- t a i n e n o u g h g e n e r a t i o n capacity to cover its greatest load On peak days, REC's have generators r u n n i n g which are not needed during the rest of the year Some of these generators are not as efficient as the larger base units that work year 'round, meaning a higher charge tor peak load energy. If electrical demand starts soaring during a severely hot period this summer, which has riot been seen as yet. KKC's will announce a Peak Alert on television and radio. These annoucements ask members to stagger electrical loads during the critical time period, between 4 and 8 p.m., when nearly everyone is using electricity Peak Alert will only be used w h e n absolutely necessary, but when it is, KEC members should not use more than one major electric appliance at a t i m e For e x a m p l e , members should try to avoid cooking and washing or drying clothes a! the same time The Peak Alert program was initiated in 197(1, and has been credited w i t h saving m i l l i o n s o f d o l l a r s f o r M i s s o u r i ' s 400,000 K E C members Financial News Lowe, Khonda Wayrnan SECOND SKMKSTKK K Honor (toll E i g h t h g r a d e -- C o n n i e Bowyer, Debbie Keller, Hoy Romesburg, Mark Smiley* Sophomore- Doug Wilson* J u n i o r s - J e n n y H u n t e r * , Joy Narr* Seniors-- Brenda McKiddy, Venita McCollum*, Marsha McKerrow*, D i a n a S t i t h * , Janice Toedebusch* S Honor Roll E i g h t h g r a d e - T i s h Mansfield, Angela Shoultz, Wheeling Continued From 1'uge 1 Meveis, Garv H u n t e r , Bowyer, K e n n y .l.uiae Venmlea F r e s h m e n - Jon Kerry White Sophomores--Lisa W e s t S e i f e r t , Toedebusch J u n i o r s -- Lori Brouhard, Brenda Crowe, Pat Kimmis, Dean Ann Howe, Tim McKid- dv, Teresa Renshaw Seniors -Denise Bowman, Jay Hunter, Lyle Lowe, Rhonda Meyers, Gary Wayman The sign * following names designates those students with all E grades CHICAGO (AP) -- Futures trading Monday on the Chicago Board of Trade: Open High Low Close Chg WHEAT 5,000 bu.; dollars per bu, Jul 4.16', 2 4.29';; 4.161-j 4.28'a +.16 Sep 4.30 4.40'a 4.29 4.40 +.15 3 j Dec 4.46'a 4.58 4.46 4.57'a + .15'.4 Mar 4.60 4.72 4.60 4.71 3 j +.15'a May 4 68':- 4 78 4.67 4.76'a + . 1 4 ' j Jul 4.70';; 4.79'a 4.70'- 4.79 +.13 Sales Fri. 14,557.

Center Supervisor Tim Fairbrother used electric fencing to control cattle feeding. Roughly 350 farmers heard research reports and observed new equipment at work at the annual event. --University Extension Photo One-time hay bale locating is said easier, better for stock Aiea farmers were told last T u t ' M l . i j a b o u t a h a y i n g .sjsteiii t h a t boosted feeding v a l u e by 10 per cent and cuts lecdmjj lime from four hours a day to less than an hour. "It's done simply with some .idvanci 1 planning, an electric I cure and hay feeders that go over big bales." said Tim F.iirbrollier. superintendent of the University of Missouri- Columbia's Forage Systems Research Center near Linneus. Fairbrolher said his hay feeding syste worked in the following manner: After baling hay, the large round bales are moved to one corner of the winter pastures. The bales are placed in four Deaths And Funerals Virgil Kenneth Nibarger Virgil Kenneth Nibarger, 60, Highway 65 North, died Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock at his home. Mr Nibarger was born June 6, 1920 in Livingston County to Albert and Elizabeth (Barnhill) Nibarger. He was a local contractor He married-Helen Louise Johnson on November 14,1940 in Chillicothe Mr Nibarger was a member of the First Baptist Church and a t t e n d e d school in Livingston County and spent his entire life in I hi- Chillicothe area. Survivors include his wife Helen of the home; two daughters. Dolores Thiemc, Chillicothe and Rosalee Suchsland, Chillicothe: one son, Terry Nibarger, of the home; four brothers. Luther Nibarger, Gait; Archie Nibarger, Howard .Nib.irger and Leonard Nibarger, all of Chillicothe, and three grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, one brother and one sister Funeral services will be held Tuesay at 1:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church with the Rev. Don Palmer officiating. The casket will be moved to the church at 12:30 and will be closed at the start of the service. Burial will be in Edgewood cemetery under the direction of the Norman FUheral Home. The f a m i l y ask that memorial contributions be made to the tree fund at Simpson Park or to the Cancer fund. There is no planned visitation. Services for Mrs. Ethel M. Collins Funeral services for Mrs. Ethel M. Collins, who died Friday at Iledrtick Medical Center, were held this afternoon at 1:30 in the chapel of the Norman Fuenral Home with the Rev. Gilbert Evans officiating. Cathy Smith sang "The Old Rugged Cross" and "In The Garden," accompanied by Mrs. Jean Burton. Pallbearers were Owen Walker, John Mammen, Loy Lawhon, Joe Painter, Harold Miller and Jewell Jefferies. Burial was in the Resthaven Memorial Gardens under the direction of the Norman Funeral Home.

An electric fence built around the bale lot protects the bales from the cattle. Bales are fed to the cattle by moving the electric wire behind two bales and flipping hay feeders over them. "The major advantage of the system is that it saves wear and tear on pastures and e q u i p m e n t d u r i n g wet weather," said Fairbrother. "Feeding hay this way also saves labor by hauling hay once instead of twice." Fairbrother said it used to take about four hours to feed cows at the research center because hay had to be hauled out to the bale yard. Now, Fairbrother moves the elctric fence when he wants the cattle to move on to some new bales of hay. "With our old system," explained Fairbrother, "strings around bales stored outside would rot off in the winter, and some of the hay hauled from the bale yard fell off before reaching the cows." F a i r b r o t h e r said U M C research shows that using feeders around big bales will save about 40 per cent of the feeding value which would otherwise be lost by cattle trampling over some of the hay. Fairbrother said the electric fence system is also an advantage for young calves. "When a calf is about three days old, it can wander underneath the electric fence and lie, down next to the bales," said Fairbrolher. "The bales block the wind and snow. The area around the bales is relatively clean and dry which helps reduce scouring probles. Also during severe cold or a snowstorm, the calves can get away from the cows, which protects them from being trampled." Fairbrother said farmers should plan winter feeding strategy before baling hay. "Plan to move bales only once from the hay fields to the winter feeding area." he said. "If supplemental bales are needed, they should be transported through the fields in good weather." T h e R e t i r e d S e n i o r Volunteer Program will hold its seventh annual Recognition Dinner tomorrow evening at the U n i t e d M e t h o d i s t church at 6:30. The theme for this year's dinner is "Pick A Winner, Vote RSVP," said Mrs. Ruth Seiberling, member of the dinner arrangements committee. "A convention theme is being carried out similar to the national party conventions held during presidential election years." Mrs. Seiberling said banners would be placed and badges worn by volunteers to add to the appearance of the convention theme.. "The name of our party is the V o l u n t e e r P a r t y of America," said Mrs. Seiberling, who added that more than 200 people are expected to ;it- tend. Brother Jammes Mabery, chairman of the RSVP Advisory Council, will serve as master of ceremonies for the program. Mrs. Share Bane, a member of the Institute of Community Studies, Kansas City, will be the featured speaker. Bill Hoyt, presiding judge of the Livingston County court, will present pins to volunteers who have contributed 40 hours of volunteer service. Other volunteers will be recognized at the dinner for their contributions, as well, said Mrs. Seiberling. The turkey and dressing dinner is being prepared by Mrs. Wanda Thomas and Mrs. Rosalie Hoyt. Kitchen service is being donated by the Jaycee Wives, with Marcia Beemer as chairman. Girl Scouts and Liberty UMYF members will wait tables.
