Electric rates for North Little Rock residential customers last year were moderate compared with bills charged in cities of comparable size with publicly- owned utilities. Don S. Smith, formerly of Little Rock and now a member of the Federal Power Commission, said an FPC study several years ago of typical electric rates in the nation showed that the North Little Rock Electric Department's rate was in the high range. In the latest FPC study, Arkansas was near the lowest range in both residential and industrial categories for cities o! at least 2,500 persons based on the state average bill. Rales charged by Arkansas Power Light Co. in Little Rock compared more favorably with rates for other cities with 50,000 or more persons that are served by privately-owned utilities. * , \ f I ' THE BIG STOP WITH THE Blfe VALUES'...
