A small vacuum cleaner type motor provided a thin film of air under three large circular pads supporting the platform. This air-cushion reduced friction between the floor and the pads enabling finger-tip movement of the platform carrying about 200 pounds. Two novel experiments involving "man-made" molecules showed mo- dern chemistry's contribution to progress.

CAR OUTLOOK Auto manufacturers predict that within two or three years they will be building mostly subcompacts. They base this prediction on another one: that gasoline will soon cost more than a dollar a gallon. They also expect that such standard items as spare tires will become "options".

We are sorry to hear of the death of Mary West, wife of Clive West. We is likely to be worse, when the amount of income taxes is expected to rise to $16,800.

Approximately forty percent of-those .... taxpayers who are apparently eligible for the credit are not claiming it when they file their returns. For those who qualify, the Earned Income Credit is a special credit of up to $400 which can reduce the amount of tax owed or result in a refund. If you have not yet filed your tax return, answer these questions: 1. Was the total family income less than $8000 last year? 2. Did you maintain a home for yourself and at least one child who was under 19 years of age or a student? 3. Are you entitled to claim the child as your dependent? If you answered "yes" to all three questions, you may be eligible for the Earned Income Credit. Read the instructions in your tax form booklet or call the IRS toll free 1-800-642-1931. Then file your return and claim the credit (if you are eligible}. If you think you are eligible for the Earned Income Credit but did not claim it when you fded your return, do not worry. The IRS will send a letter to all those apparently eligible for the credit but who did not claim it. Answer the questions and return the letter and the IRS will recompute your tax and issue a refund as appropriate. HEARING TEST SET FOR GLENVILLE W.

BELTONE HEARING AID SERVICE 442-8. W. Pike St. C, iarJusburg. W.Va. 26301 i i : Straight Answers From Your Power Company This is one in a series of replies to questions being asked by our customers. Answering is Don Hollen, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Com- pan,v. Where do all of Monongahela's pro fits go ? ANSWER: All of Monongahela's prufitsl We could sleep better at night if we could make enough profit to be sure we will be able to pay for the power stations and other things needed to provide enough electricity to serve all our customers in the ftext few years. Profit is really used for only two things. Let me explain briefly: (1) Retained earnings: 7hl is the portion of profit retained to invest in new facilities to provide for the growth thai is taking place, facilities such as new power stations, sub. stations, and pole lines. In past years ttese "internally generaled" fire,Is covered about 50% of our new construul/on needs. Today, our profits are only suthcient to finance some 30% of the new/acihttes. The balance must be obtained by "borrowing," chiefly through the sale of long-term bonds, on which today a high mtervut rate must be paid, and through the sale el stock. (2) Dividends: This is the other portion of profit, divided among the stockholders as a return on the savings they chose to invest in our business. Investors are free to place their money wherever they choose--in our busi- ness, in other businesses, in government securities, or in savings accounts. But wher- ever they place it, they demand and deserve a return on their investment. If we are to be able to continue to build the facilities which will be needed in the future, we must have their investment; but if we could not pay a reasonable return; the investors most cer. tainly would put their money someplace else. Monongahela is one of three companies comprising Allegheny Power System. "Own- ership" is by the more than 65,000 APS com- mon stockholders. Here's how the stockholder list breaks down: - 31% are located in the states we serve - 36% are women --More than 80% own fewer than 500 shares --More thall one-fourth own fewer than t 00 shares It is asy to se that the list includes many, many ordinary people just like the rest of us. But it also includes institutions and com- panies such as your insurance company or your pension fund; so even if you are not a direct stockholder, it is likely that you are beneficially involved by such things as in- vestment ot your insurance premiums or pension fund in American business. That's where all of Monongahela's profits go-- to make it possible for us to continue to provide electricity, now and in the future, Monondahela Power Part of the Allegheny Power System at6 3 Z .!
