TIME TO RETIRE ... so he's let medical license expire Illinois M.D. Retires At Age 1i, Practiced 7i Years ATHENS, 111. (AP) - Dr. I Tolbert Hill has treated his last patient and let his medical license expire. He's 100. Hill tried to end his practice in 1955, the year his wife died. But since no other doctor practices in this central Illinois community of 1,000, he continued to see some patients until earlier this year. ; "You're not going to' get a young doctor who wants to practice in a crossroads like this anymore," Hill said in an interview on Wednesday. "Your young doctor today is likely the son of another doctor, who's come from a home where he's had all the comforts of life, and it would be quite a comedown for him here," he said. Hill's father, who was a doctor, moved to Illinois from Tennessee, and got to know Abraham Lincoln. : "But I didn't have the privileges of my son and my grand on," he said. His son practice n San Jose, Calif., and hi jrandson is a physician Seattle. Hill moved to Athens in 1898 Like other doctors of the time le visited patients in a horse drawn buggy until cars becam available in the 1920s. During the depression, Hi sometimes received eggs chickens instead of his usua payment. Although the country docto neither smokes nor drinks, h attributes his health and Ion life to his family heritage. ' ' Y o u ' r e nothing withoi that," he says. He said he has delivered a proximately 2,500 babies in h 76 r year career. ', Hill says he's enjoying his r lirement. But he mused,' "0 age is no fun. You lose yo hearing and can't apprecia the rustle of a silk skirt an more."

PSC Hears More Testimony On Redfield Plant LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- The Arkansas Public Service Com- ission was told Thursday that would cost $285 million to in- lall sulphur dioxide scrubbers n Arkansas Power Light o.'s proposed coal-iired poxver PSC Lets Co-Ops Impose Surcharge LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The stale Public Service Commission Thursday gave four clcc- Iric cooperatives permission to impose a surchage immediately of up lo 20 per cent on customers' bills. The surcharge was granted to slop deficit operating conditions of the past few months. Nine cooperatives had applied May 2 to the PSC for permission to levy a surcharge to recover the increased charges to them for power furnished by Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp. B'our of them subsequently petitioned for immediate relief and produced balance sheets at a hearing indicating that they had been operating at a deficit.

Wood- 'ard, power production direc- or tor the' utility, also told the that it would cost only 33.3 million more to locate half he facility at another site. Calculations of the state De- artmeht of Pollution Control nd- Ecology show that sulphur lixoide emissions under the /orst case conditions would ex eed the state's pollution stand- rds if only two instead of the our generating units at the Redfield site were used. Those calculations of emis ions from a two-unit one-stack plant were based on ; the assumption that the units were operating at 100 per cent capac- ty. The projected cost differential between splitting the plant and installing scrubbers -- a pollution control device -came to the PSC's attention Thursday because Commissb-r er Jerry Jackson specifically asked about it. Locating half of the facility at another site was one of the alternatives proposed for study last month by Jarrell E. Southall, air division chief of the De- diate increase were First Electric Cooperative Corp., Ashley- Chicot Electric Cooperative, Petit Jean Electric Cooperative Corp. and South Central Electric Cooperative. The PSC said those cooperatives could put a surcharge into effect on the next billing date. The PSC ruled that the Surcharge could he equal to the surcharge imposed on the cooperatives by. Arkansas Electric, but could not exceed 20 p e r cent. Read it July 2Tst In NEWS WHILE IT IS NEWS IN THE TIMES Zinke Warns Lack Of Energy May Hall Growth SAN ANTONIO, Tex.
