Nicely, executive director. These tours will cover every county served by the regional tourist promotion agency using points of interest and events. Scheduled to be included from Gilmer county are Cedar Creek State Park, Glenville State College, Job's Temple, Glenville Golf Course, and the Folk Festival. The purpose of the tours, Nicely explained, is to entice the tourist off the Interstates and other super highways-onto secondary and primary roads. "Too many people are passing through our region without stopping," Nicely stated. This is causing a loss of revenue to businesses, a decline in overnight lodging, and depriving the area of receiving all the benefits the tourist brings.

IIIIIII II Straight Answers From Your Power Company This is one in a series of replies to questions be- ing asked by our eusto- Iner8. Answering ie Lea Brooks, Manager, Appli- cations Engineering and Research. QUESTION: With so many people now conserving en- ergy, why do you predict that more elec. tricity will be needed in the future? ANSWER: We are certainly not promoting the in- creased use of electricity, but even with conservation, energy needs continue to in- crease. In 1975, Monongahela's residential customers used nine percent more kilowatt- hours than in 1974, and commercial custo- mers used nearly 11 percent more--appar- ently resuming a long-term upward trend after lesser increases in 1974, Looking ahead, it has been estimated that in the next 10 years the number of U.S. households will increase by as much as 34 percent; the size of the labor force will go up 25 percent, and the number of consumers in the family-forming, home-buying 25-34 age bracket will increase 31 percent. The new homes, the job-producing indus- tries and the commercial establishments to support this growth will require more elec- tricity than we use today. Environmental clean-up, necessary to cope with increased population and industrial growth, will use even more energy. As other forms of energy diminish, the need for electricity as a re- placement will increase. We have adequate generating capacity for today; however we must also provide for the electricity demands of tomorrow. If we can maintain sufficient earnings to stay on schedule with construction of our Pleasants Station near St. Marys, we should be able to supply our customers' projected needs into the early 1980's. It takes several years to plan, finance and construct a power station. To be prepared for the next decade, we must plan now so the generation capability will be them when you need it.
