The University of Arkans ndustrial Research and Exle ion Center released a posit! apcr Saturday that exprcs-j concern about the Public Serv- Commission's handling of Arkansas-Louisiana Gas Go's. recent rate increase proposals. Arkla originally asked the SC lor a riile increase thai would bring tlie utility $12.2 nillion in revenues. The PSC cut the proposal almost in half. nd in the end, bar! approved rale increases totaling $7 mil- ion for Arkla. The paper was w r i t t e n by Keith French, senior research specialist. French expressed concern hal the PSC aclion seemed to ndicate a constriclivc rcgu- atory posture which, he said. mighl he unwise during times of encrsy problems. French said utility initiative was riccded lo assure Ihe con .inurxl adequacy of fuel for both consumer nceJs and for main taining Ihe state's economic prosperity. The report raised questions about the tre-ilmenl given Ar kla's application in matle.-s icrlaining lo determination of Is rate base, inveslment credit and income tax expense which, ic .said, are delrimcnlal to the company and depart substantially from conventional regu lalory practice. "By the use of liberalized of tax benefits lo Ihe ratepayer, while deducting deferred income taxes from the rate base," the paper .said, "'he PSC prevented Arkla from re covering costs by procedures generally recognized and ac ccptcd by the accounting pro fcssion and in existing rc^u latory practice." Another objection expressec 1 n the report concerned Ihi method by which the PSC »r rived at income lax expense on the regulate.! porlion of ulilily's operalion. The use of Ihe consolidate income statement, the paper noted, lo arrive at an "effectivt tax rale" for ratemaking w« nol according to recognizer methods for determining t tax for the base-year period. Irish Children Arrive For Summer Of Peace MINNEAPOLIS. Minn. (AP) -- There were grins from ear o ear and scarcely a dry eye when ,120 Irish youngsters arrived in Minnesota to begin a six-week vacation from the vio- ence in Northern Ireland. The children, half of them Catholic and half of them Prol- jstant, are from the most troubled areas of Belfast. Five , r ears of communal fighting have taken more than 1,000 ives ill Ulster. Most of the children have lost relatives and friends in the upheaval. Belfast officials say fathers of three children have been shot since the youngsters were accepted into the summer program. The project, sponsored by the Hibbirtg, Minn., Rotary Club, is the result of a happy summer spent last year by two Belfast children. Sarah Hughes sent her 10-year-old son. David, and Irene Hill, 9, to the United States to escape the violence of their home town. Mrs. Hughes received many letters from American families who wanted to host a child, and when the Hibbing Rotary organization began its project, tlie inquiries were sent to the northern Minnesota town. "America's brilliant," was the observation dt 9-year-old Gerard Nolan as he met his hosts, the Josef Nehrings of Duluth. Minn. The children will spend (he summer in the peaceful Upper Midwest. Most of the host families live in Minnesota, but some reside in the Dakotas, Wisconsin and Iowa. As the children filed into Min- ;apolis-St. Paul International Airport, Pat Thissen of .Tanes- 'ille, Minn., led the crowd of iboul 500 persons in singing When Irish Eyes Are Smi!. rrg." "I'm so pleased everything went well." said Nancy Tim- mermnn, a former social work- r who directs the project. We've been working on this or seven months and it's great o have them here." Torch Enclosed KAIR LAWN, N.J. (AP) No one knows how long Ian- cms have been sheltering! ights, say researchers at the Duro-Lite Home Lighting Institute here. ; Alexis of Thureii, a 2nd cen-! ury Greek, was in the dark when he wrote, "Whoever invented the lantern was certain- y very careful of his hands" -referring to sparks and hot pitch which were hazards of the orch. In the 19th century the kcro- icne chimney lantern was developed, with a fluted cylindrical glass lube that created a liraft from bottom to top, giving more, oxygen for a brighter Name. And today homeowners achieve the welcoming effects of gaslight through electricity, in hurricane light bulbs designed for use outdoors, as post lights and porch lights.

Office hours are 8:00 a.m. 'til 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. On Saturdays we're open 8:00 'til noon. Play safe by having your ad in early. 3. When Is the Best Time To Coll In An Ad? Although the time when an ad is placed is not too important, some periods are busier than others, For the quickest service it's advisable to call early in the morning to place an ad for the following day. 4. How Do I Know If Worded Correctly? My Ad Is A good ad tells the complete story. Tells what YOU would like to know if you were the reader. Intelligent, descriptive ads WITH PRICES get best attention and produce quickest results. If you are in doubt as to how to word your ad consult a TIMES Ad-Visor. Point out the best features of the article you are advertising. Always feature price! Remember --the more you TELL--the quicker you SELL! Price is important because Want Ad Shoppers know what they want and how much they plan to spend. A price creates only live responses and eliminates idle inquiries that waste time and usually end or start with the question "HOW MUCH? 5. How Are Want Ad Rates Determined?-- Want Ad rates are based on the circulation of the paper. The TIMES reaches approximately 13,000 homes daily or approximately 45,500 readers. A TIMES Want Ad is actually one of the most Inexpensive services available. A TIMES Classified .Ad costs as little as $1.44 per day and reaches almost 13,000 homes each day. To send a postcard to each of these homes just once would cost over $1000.00. 6. How Fully Should My Proposition? Describe Always describe your proposition as fully as possible. Try to put yourself in the reader's position and answer the questions that might be asked with your ad. If the car you're selling has brand new tires, mention it in your ad. If the job you're offering pays $95 per week--mention it. If your cow ii a top producer--mention it. If the home you're selling has a large yard--mention it. These are things that your prospective customers will want to know. The TIMES Want Ad Is only as effective as the sales presentation your copy contains. The better you TELL IT the quicker you SELL IT. 7. Which Is the Best Day To Advertise? One day Is as good as another. Various agencies and research- era have made painstaking etudies and have come up with very similar conclusions. No one has been able to prove conclusively that any one day is better than another. 8. Why Didn't I Get Results From My Ad? Although, by and large, the results from TIMES Want Ads are remarkable, occasionally yon will find that your ad brings no response. There could be several reasons. It may be wise to reword your ad to make it more attractive. Then again, it may just be that no one was in the market for your particular offer at the time your ad ran. In this case it would be wise to hold your ad for a week or two, then try again. In any event TIMES Classified Ads are read by thousands of people every flay. Make your offer attractive, give it a fair chance by scheduling it for seven days, and if there is a market for what you offer--The TIMES will find it. 9. Do You Accept Any Ad? No, we quite oflen turn down ads. We try to get complete information on any ad that sounds misleading or offers fan- tattic returns on investments. We feel we have an obligation to protect our readers from false or misleading advertising. We edit and reject certain ads each week. Should you experience any misrepresentation or fraud in connection with any advertisement notify the Classified Advertising Manager immediately. 10. What Happens If You Make A Mistake In My Ad? We correct it. But--errors must be reported immediately as we are responsible for only one (1) incorrect iniertion. Typists and printers are human, therefore, mistakes happen now and then. It h customary for newspapers to make good on one insertion. u. When Should Box Number? I Use A Box numbers should be used only when absolutely necessary. Few people will take the time to write » reply to year ad, never knowing whether it will be acknowledged or not A box onmber definitely cuts down on response you an likely to receive. Some people for one reaion or another do not wish to reveaJ their identity and therefor* o*e a box Bomber. 12. Why Can't You Tell Me Who Placed a Box Number Ad? We constantly receive requests to reveal who has placed a blind ad. We will not divulge this information to anyone! Advertisers who use TIMES box numbers are paying for a confidential service. It would be a serious violation of business ethics to divulge their identity. 13. Why Can't 1 Decide Which Classification I Want To Place My Ad Under? Before Want Ads became as important as they *r« today It was possible to lump them all together without headings. As the power of Want Ads increased and they became an important advertising medium it became imperative to separate them in some logical manner. Classification headings were developed to make it easier for the reader to find specific ads. Our readers are accustomed to these headings and deliberate mis-classification would cause annoyance which wouldn't help the advertiser, The TIMES or the reader. 14. You Call Them "Want Ads" and "Classified Ads" Which Is Correct? Both terms are correct. The term "Want Ads" is an older, perhaps more accurate description of our product. Want ad- vertistng is a market in which everyone can express and satisfy their needs and wants. "Classified" is a newer term growing out of the increase in Want Ad« which resulted in more and more classifications. It really doesn't matter what you call them--they still work. 15. How Many People Read My Ad? The TIMES' circulation shows an average daily circulation of 13,000. This means that almost 45,500 people see the paper daily. In recent studies mad* It was found that slightly more than one-half of the newspaper readers regularly refer to the Classified section daily. Of coarse, this is not always the same half. You have a reach of 22,750 readers in each issue or a possible total of 45,500 with two or more insertions. 16. Why Should I Run My Ad Again If It Did Not Produce Results The First Time? The market you reach through Classified ia constantly changing. Just because your ad didn't produce results this week, does not mean that it cannot do so. People who didnt' need a baby buggy yesterday may discover they need one soon. People who had jobs yesterday may not have them today. In the TIMES audience thousands of families' needs and wants are ever cbagning. An offer that produced no results this week may be overwhelmingly successful next week. 17- I Answered An Ad In Your Paper And Found That the Number Published Was Wrong. What Should I Do? Mistakes are occasionally made. Please let ni know immediately if you answer an ad and the phone number printed is incorrect. We can trace back and find the right number for you. By calling us about such a mistake you can help everyone concerned. 18. If I Had A Problem Regarding A Classified What Should I Do? Ad If you feel that you have a problem which hasn't been resolved to your satisfaction be sure to can this to the attention of the Classified Manager. Misunderstandings can develop and we do everything possible to correct them. If you have any questions about the manner in which your ad was handled, be sure to have them answered to your satisfaction.
