Copp, who were in an auto accident near that point last week, expected to be able to return home the latter part of this week. Mr. Copp states: "We are coming along fine and will be home in about a week or so. Mrs. Copp was badly bruised on the left side, but don't believe any ribs or bones broken. "We had taken In all the bad places to drive and were on our way to Billings from Roundup and struck a piece of wet road that was oiled and the car skidded and went into the ditch and turned bottom side up. It seemed like a long time before anyone was there, but when we got out there were n dozen cars and folks ready to help. "One real kind old German lady had a small bottle of brandy for just such an emergency and after we had Mrs. Copp and Mrs. Mabel Van Heise of Pierre, S. D., starlet' to town this grand old lady knew I would have better nerves, if I took a drink. So I agreed with her "Mrs. Van Hise, who was with us. suffered a broken arm." He added that the country out there looks very good, and that they had seen a bunch of deer and six or eight black bear. They had also visited the geyser basins, and Copp said he could understand why nobody believed Jim Bridger (pioneer scout and discoverer of Yellowstone Park) when he returned and told of the wonders he had seen.

Rome 375 fnrnis in Kossuth county nre now assured of electric service. The project which wns submitted to Washington on June 1, has been approved nnd Includes proposed construction of about 160 miles of line in LuVerne, Sherman, Irvington, Prairie, Wesley, Plum Creek, Portlnnd nnd Buffalo townships. When the work was started on the R. E. A. membership sign-up, it was Intended that the whole south end of the county would be included in the first section to be built, as there are Humboldt lines entering the county nt both the east and west sides. It wns found, however, that the sign up in the west half of tho county represented but 1.3 users per mile, Flan Expansion Soon While this was not sufficient to mnkc a project feasible in that area at present, it is hoped that more work will be done and that a second application can be sent in to secure funds for the construction of more ine in the near future. Since the R. E. A. Is strictly a cooperative proposition, It requires that all farmers In any area sign up as prospective users before that area can be considered for lino construction. According to R. E. A. plans an, income of $10.00 per mile is needed to get electrification. Since the minimum rate which can be signed for in the agreemnta Is $3.50 for 40 kilowatt hours it In necessary that three farms be signed per mile. At that rate part of the tiouble in getting enough signer* for the R. E. A. has been that lov/a farms are larger than average so that there may not be a» large a number of possible applicants as In other »t»te£ " . Get Awnmd DUn 0 ulty"^''*%^ To meet this difficulty supplementary contracts have been mndo out for some applicants who agree to take more than the minimum of $;i.r>0 of electricity per month so that the requirement of $10 Income per mile can be fulfilled. , —., Power for the new llne.s will come from either Pocaliontas or Reeves where the government maintains power stations. Hates are scaled upward from the S.l.no ratu for 40 kilowatt hours $4.00 for r,.> :iour*, $4.SU for 00 k. w. It. up to $.1 M for 100 k. w. h. and $7.ltu for 2(10 kilowatt hours. Lines enter KoHsuth county from Humboldt in both the east and west sides of the south end of the coun'y .so that extension of them would be possible if the necessary number of signers for service is obtained.
