She is the only female letter carrier in the city, and she has learned the hazards of the game first hand. A June graduate of the State College of Iowa at Cedar Falls, Barbara was one of nine persons throughout this area hired for summer replacement work at the post office there. Miss Wehrspan, a resident of Fenton, will begin her teaching career in the fall at Ccrning. But until then, she will be one of the post office's ready reserve. She ventured out on her route alone for the first time Wednesday after having the other carrier with her for two days. Although the skies were cloudy and a warm shower dotted -the streets, she was prepared for her summer job in a pair of slacks, a white blouse and some comfortable walking sandals. She walks 10 to 12 miles a day. She uses a three-wheeled pushcart device to carry the heavy packed mail pouch, instead of slinging the pack over her shoulder. While she likes the job, there are some problems - like ornery dogs and rock throwing children. This is the first time the summer replacement program, using high school and college students, has been used in Council Bluffs, according to Postmaster Ken A. Madigan. The hiring of the nine students was granted by the regional office at St. Louis and all applicants underwent the civil service examination. "They were selected on merit," noted Madigan.

Iowa Electric In Move To Lower Power Rates An electric rate reduction of $875,000 per year has been filed with the Iowa Commerce Commission by the Iowa Electric Light and Power Company. The proposed reductions apply to all single-meter residential customers and certain residential customers now being billed on the basis of two meters. The rate reduction is a part of the company's planned rate adjustments which have been carried on since 1960. During this period, the total electric reductions to residential, commercial and rural customers have amounted to $2,575,000. The propsed residential rate schedule is offered upon an optional basis. Most customers now receiving service through one meter and certain of those residential customers who have been billed separately through two meters for domestic, water heating, or space heating use, will enjoy a rate reduction. No customer will receive an increase, as present two-meter customers will have the opportunity of remaining on their present rates or choosing to receive service under the proposed schedule. The company has asked the Iowa Commerce Commission to make the rate eifective on July 5, 1966.
