Regretfully, this is no longer true, As the costs of producing and supplying electricity have gone up Texas Power & Light has had no choice but to ask its customers to pay more for what they use. The electric bill has become a large item in most family budgets. You and each member of your family are important parts of your electric bill. How you use appliances and equipment makes a big difference in the amounts of your bills. Make a family project of keeping the air conditioner thermostat set at about 78. Operate the clothes washer, dryer and dishwasher only with full loads. Turn the television off when you leave it. And check around the house for other energy-saving, dollar- saving measures. Texas Power & Light is working to assure an adequate supply of electric power for all of its customers and to help them get the most value for their electric dollars.

You bet and we'll give Cedar Creek Grapevine Many Mabank citizens are going to Miss Brother Barron and his wife,Aletha,who have pastored the First Baptist Church of Cedar Creek Lake for the past five years. The Barrons have been trans- ferred to Chandler where he will be the minister of the First Baptist Church of Chandler. Although the Bar- Tons said they find it hard to leave the lake area where they have so many friends, they won't be too far away to visit often and they will be nearer Reverend Barron's parents and several other relatives who live in Tyler. Sue Smalling of the Cedar Creek Nursing Home in Malakoff says they would like to initiate a Volunteer Pro- gram that would include people to read to bedfast patients, or mend clothes, lead a sing-song, play games, teach skills, hobbys or arts and crafts, to chat, to take patients to church, shopping, fishing, etc. or to write leters or send appropriate greeting cards to patients. If you have a big heart, time and an urge to serve, give Sue a call at the Nursing Home and learn what you can do to relieve the monotony of someone's days. The smiles and gratitude of the Nursing Home residents will add pleasure to your own life.

It will be a covered dish luncheon. The program will enncern the urowing and By Lois Williams care of herbs. All members are urged to attend and bring a guest. Cedar Crest Shores resident Less LaRue had an old fash- ioned quilting bee in her home lately. A group of the 49'er Senior Citizens Club ladies are involved in this project and the quilts will be sold as one of the many fund raising projects that 49'er members are involved in to swell the amount in the senior citizens building fund drive. Talented sewers such as Leslie Frankl- in, Jo Jones, Ruby South- wood, Lola Carter and Bess LaRue are busy making these quilty.

Jim and Nita Gray of Arnold Hills in Seven Points are helping John and "Tui" Ore get settled in their new home. John grew up with the Gray children and Jim and Nita say they think of him as one of their own. The Ore's recently moved to Cedar Creek from Iran and John now works with Jim in his business in Seven Points where they re-manufacture turbine engine parts for pumping stations. "Tui", a native of Thailand, can't help feeling a little homesick now and then and wonders if there are any other natives of her part of the world living in the Cedar Creek Lake area that she might contact. She speaks fair English and is working at improving her language skills. If there are any other natives of Thailand in the area that would like to be- friend "Tui", you can contact her through Jim and Nita Gray. Jo Anna tludson, owner of the Merle Norman Studio in Seven Points, has engaged expert cosmetician Jo Dempsy as manager of this nice establishment. Jo is in- viting all Cedar Creek Lake area ldies to come by and ,.e, ee theirselection of lingerie and jewelry and let her demonstrate their fine line of beauty products. Before be- coming a resident of Isle of View II in the Tool area, Jo spent many yeirs in Dallas, where she worked in one of that city's best stores as a representative of a top line of cosmetics, so she is a store house of expert beauty and advise. Mid-summer is hog plum jelly making time according to Barbara Key and Betty Galloway of Tradewinds Ad- dition in Tool. Last week they were observed atop a pickup truck alongside a public road robbing one of the wild plum trees of it's crop of ripe, cherry-sized fruit. Barbara's husband, Ox and a young grandson had also been pres- sed into service to gather the sweet globules from the high branches with the aid of a ladder. Both ladies agree that hog plums make the best of all jellies and they are happy that the long, hot summer has 105 N. Terry Makoff t produced a bumper crop of the luscious fruit. Key Ranch resident Mild- red Smith, Director of Dis- trict 5 of the Business and Professional Women's Clubs of Texas will be in Ft. Worth Aug. 27-28 to attend the B&PW State Federation Board meeting. Mildred also reports that the Cedar Creek Lake B&PW Club chapte recently sent 67 wigs to th M.D. Anderson Cancer Has pital in Houston. They were delivered by Carl and Betty Raines of Seven Points. Mrs. Raines makes regular trips to the M.D. Anderson Hospital for treatments that folow up cancer surgery she had a' that excellent facility severa_ months ago. Her doctors re- port that she is doing very well. Incidently, the local B&PW club collected and sent more than 50 wigs to the Houston Cancer Research Center last year . B&PW club ladies all over Texas have "adopted" this hospital as their special on-going project. The collec- tion of wigs is a part of that project. Cobalt and X-ray treatments and cancer fight- ing drugs frequently cause a disfiguring loss of hair and the wigs are a welcome gift. Medical personnel at the hos- pital report a great improve- ment in morale when a pat- ient can present an attractive appearance. If any of you have wigs you no longer use, you can make a needy cancer patient happy by leaving it with any of the following B&PW club members: Mil- dred Smith, Jim's Office Supply .on Highway 74 in Seven Points (Across the road from the Country Beauty Parlor); Maidie Lee James, Dials Beauty salon; Emmy Finley, Leisure Corner Shop; Dee Moore, Millie Brown's Real Estate Office or Cecil Lee, Henderson County Lib- rary, West.(The latter four are all located in the B and J Center in Seven.

By Lu Ten Napel Continued from last week Side groove, saddle groove and consolidated design num- ber are other terms often used. The side and saddle grooves refer to the inden- tation in the insulator that holds the wire-the side groove is an indentation in the qenter of the top, making the in- sulator look a bit like a saddle. Some early insulators, have been found to have "swirl starts" on the threads, no inner skirt, and a mold line that runs all the way to the top or over the dome, while the very earliest have no threads at all. Inside threads were invented in 1865. The inner skirt was patent- ed by Samuel Oakman in 1883, and Hemingray patented a two-step process for produc- ing threaded insulators in 1871, the California Electrical Works bought out the EC. and M. Co. in 1878. All this data is necessary for col- lectors to date and identify insulators. They range in size from less than an inch to multiple stacks that can mea- sure eight feet in length. Numbers on insulators re- fer to the year of the pa- tent. however, not the year of manufacture. Some I dels have code dicating the year facture. They can the following: if threads in the they're pre- 1865, threads indicate ma before 1885,- a- running over the pears on pre- 1890 a mold line of the dome indi made after 1871. hive shape" came after 1884, and began to appear in Insulators devel0 with the use and demand for wires on the first ones vibrated in the tended to come When L.A. awarded his tar patont in 1865 was quickly manufacturers.
