YOU CAN'T BEAT THE FAST ACTION OF THE WANT ADSI Cats To Enter 'Helena Relay Wildcat track and field stars are planning an invasion of the St. Helena cinder premises Monday with every intention of bringing home their share of the 20-3,0 Relays ribbons. Although his charges have shown commendable versatility in the point-getting department during occasional dry spots in the prevailing climate locally. Coach Bill Murphy predicts they may also have to be handy at manning the pumps if a dry field is to be provided for the St. Helena event. All of the Cat thinclads are attempting to track down the nefarious characters who gave rise to that bum steer about the severe California drought. They point out that, this season, water wings have just as large a place as spiked shoes on the list of standard equipment. Sponsored by the 20-30 Club of St. Helena, the Monday relay event is expected to provide plenty of color, with a long list of Redwood Empire prep schools accepting in. vitations. All events with the exception ot the pole vault will be conducted on a relay basis and each school is permitted to enter six of the relay competitipns.

In 1930 he was admitti;d to the state bar.

It is not being wasted now It need never be wasted You, as a user of electric power and as a taxpayer, have an important stake in the Shasta power question. In this message we outline what's ' behind the discussion-and offer the facts for all to read. Additional Sliasta Power Will Help. We have been and are doing all we can to correct the power shortage. Power from every poosible source, in this drought year, must be distributed- to northern and central California. Shasta is expected to provide about 75,000 additional kilowatts April 15, when a new generator comes into service. There'll be a like amount later on. Our total demands run about 2,000,000 kilowatts. Shasta will help—every bit of power counts—but Shasta imwer alone won't solve the problem. Shasta Power Now Being Used. No Shasta power is going to-waste now. It's being fed onto our lines and ia being used along with power Irom about 75 other sources. It ha« been used since June 26,1944, under a contrafct between P. G. and E. and the Bureau of Reclamation—a Federal government agency. What's the Problem? ActuaUy. there shouldn-t be any • problem .. . but there is. The Bureau doesn't want to extend tha contract to cover the new Shasta power, evciJfor the balance of this year. Instead, the Bureau has reluctantly agreed to put the additional power on our lines during the emergency on a day "to day basis, We have agreed to take it that way—this assures no waste of Shdsta Power during the emergency—but leaves the long-range disposition of the power unsettled. Why Is There a Contract Dispute? It started back in 1941. When Shasta construction began we ofiered to supply a market for Shasta power and offered to coordinate our operations with those of the Bureau at Shasta and Keswick (another unit ot the Central Valley Project). At that time the Bureau demanded that we "convey" Sliasta power over our lines to enable them to sell it to various public agencies. It is not physically possible to do this, but_in any event we couldn't agree to such a demand. Tlieso agencies were and ara our customers and are being served under rates established or approved by the California Public Utilities Commission. Such a demand, were it carried out, would amount to virtual confiscation of a good part of our business. An agreement on our part would be just as foolish as for a milk company to agree to furnish their trucks and delivery men to someone else —who would begin delivering their own milk to t.hfi milk cem- pany'a customers. Wartime Contract Signed in 1943. Congress finally took a hand. In 1942 the Senate Appropriations Committee rec- 'onmiended tliat the Secretary-of the Interior and P.G. and E. "immediately enter into a contract, for the duration of the war and a reasonable time thereafter". -< The Bureau then agreed to a contract—without the "convey- imce" clause. Tliat contract was signed in 1943 and is still in force. It will be until the end of this year. Under tliat contract the United States has collected &om us more than 11 million dollars for Shasta power. But the contract is running out—a permanent contract should take its place. Bureau Won't Agree. TlieBureaulmagonebacktoitsorig. inal demand, first laid down in 1941. P. G. and E., they insist, must "convey" power for them for delivery to a long list of federal, state and local agencies, now P. G. and E. customers. Practically all the other points in a now contract are agreeable - to both parties. But with tliis one we disagree. Bureau's Demand Puts Burden on Public, Last year the customers which the- Bureau could take from us used more than a billion lulowatt hours of power. That's about one-eighth of oui- total power demand. Here's what that means to you: Under the direction of the Public Utilities Commission, our low rates have been carefully adjusted to cover costs of a complex system of generating and diistributing power ... to ail the people in our area. Should special privileges—at the expense of the taxpayers—be granted to those who use one-eighth of our power, the others who use the seven-eighths would naturally have to make up the difference. Wedon't want the public to be thus penalized. How to Solve the Long-Range Problem Since Shasta began to produce we've been buying power and paying for it. Our ' point is this: all northern and central California should share in Shasta power—not a few selected agencies or customers. It can be made available to the homes, farms and factories in the area. Fair terms have been offered by the P, G. and E. If there is a dispute as to price, we will submit it to the California Public Utilities Commission or to the Federal Power Commission and abide by the decision, although in 1943 Harold L. Ickes, then Secretary of the Interior, said we had agreed to pay a "fair and equitable price for the power". Transmission Lines Available, P.G. and E. transmis* sion lines are ready at our Shasta substation to taka the output of the generators to come into service this month and in July. Before another month passes we will have still another transmission lino south from Shasta substation, With t!mt line in operation all tlie power to be produced at Shasta and Ri-iwick Dama can be distributed over northern and central Califori.'a. • All the government need do is build its transmission lines to ' Sliasta substation—25 miles. It has the money to do that, appropriated by Congress last year. The Bureau of Reclamation and the Federal taxpayer, whose money it spends, need do no mora. We have the service organization, the substations and all the necessary lines to get the jiower to the public. PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC .OMPANY
