Uncle Sam reecives these tokens politely, his motto being apparently, "small favors thankfully received." The Italian king, his hand guided by Mussolini, removed General Balbo as air marshal, sending him to North Africa, making Mussolini himself the head of the air force and also the navy.

The insinuation is that rates are high beoause they are based on watered stock. Let's null this mis-statement right now. Rates are not figured upon the amount of stock that a company may have outstanding. In fixing rates the law says such determination shall be based upon the fair value of the property. As you know, about 16,000 local folks have invested around $20,000,000 in the preferred stock of this company on which no dividends have been paid for almost a year. There has been no Panel manipulation, no frenzied finance or any dilution by the addition of water in connection with this stock. An honest dollar has been honestly put to work for common good. The savings of these people have been put in dams, electrical machinery, poles, wires and other facilities right here in the State of Washington. No dividends have been paid on the common stock of this company in 1931, 1932 and 1933. As a matter of fact, in eleven out of twenty-one years of its existence there have been no dividends paid on the common stock. During the past few years the com- mon stockholders have put cash in the property amounting to $12,500,000, ahnost double the total amount which has been paid out in common dividends since the organ ization of the company in 1912. The people served by the Puget Sound Power & Light Company have gotten more for their money in service than the stockholders have gotten in return on their investment.

It was finally decided to y and paid only by people who use ask the state road commission to use the roads. On the asumption that 35 cents would buy sufficient oil and gas to run a car 100 miles, the speak- er likened that amount to rent paid for the use of that road, every other driver paying exactly the same as you, in proportion to the use you make of the road. The speaker ex- pressed the belief that if each driver could more fully realize that fact, there might be more consideration I given to the rights of others driving Ion the highways, hence less auto ac- I cidents.

The pre- text for this grab was that most of the $10,000,000 would be used on the roads anyway. Mr. Curtis said six of those ten millions had already been Have a Real Treat! "' UM "~" I LB.
