This year. visitors also will be able to attend the National Geographic Bicentennial Film Festival, a series of t2 films dramatizing events that led to break with Britain, their for independence, and efforts to create a new nation after the eight-year war.

Explorers Hall and its movie theatre are open free to the public. A different film from the series. "Decades of Decision: The American Revolution.': will be featured each week during the three-month film festival. The ~tlval includes a display of the carefully researched costumes and artifacts used in the filming. The exhibit in the hall ranges from mannequins wearing colonial uniform and men's and womon's dress of the period to colonial battle flags, as well as muskets, tomahawks, cooking implements, and household utensils and tools. The Bicentennial films were produced by the National Geographic Society in cooperation with public broadcasting station WQED-TV in Pittsburgh. Historian and author Dr. Louis B, Wright, a trustee emeritus of the Society, directed the research to insure the historical accuracy of the scripts. Carnegie-Mellon University assisted in researching the authenti- city of the films. Humamigiag History The series humanizes history by portraying in individual terms the impact of crises on the lives of people who include colonial legislators and historical figures as well as planters and farmers, settlers and townsfolk. and militiamen and their families. "'We want to show the very personal choices people were forced to make at a time when their entire social system was being torn apart." explained Dr. Melvin M. Payne, president of the Society. "Individuals had to choose which course to follow, and weigh the moral an(i economic consequences of their decisions. We hope these films will encourage audiences to reflect on how they themselves might have acted in similar trying circumstances." The films will be released this fall for showing in schools, and will be accompanied by teaching guides with suggested follow-up projects. The series will be shown later on public television.

I ght From Your Power Company Tkls Is one in a serles , ..... of repUes to questions Iletng asked by our eus- tomer~ Answering today is Art Schefb, vile President of Division Operations. QUESTION: The rates you have filed with the West Virginia Public Service Commission will in- crease bills by 25% or more. Why so much? ANSWER: Simply because everything we must buy to provide electric service now costs at least 25% more than in 1970 when we filed for the first general rate increase in our history. For example, since 1970, wire and cable are up 155%, wood poles up 121%, trucks 35%, tree trimming 35%, postage 33%, and even paper products 60%. We have put into effect every cost-saving measure we could come up with but we just can't keep up. We held off as long as we could to avoid frequent and costly rate hearings (because those costs, too, must be put into the rates). But we reached the point, after more than four years, when we could delay no longer. Our second general rate increase became effective June 28, 1975, subject to final approval by the West Virginia Public ice : 4 ,Comm on. : : ", ; The people of Monongahela have been proud of the record of reducing rates for decades. We all regret very much the necessity to increase rates in these difficult times and we intend to do our level best to keep increases responsible for us to charge less than is absolutely necessary to continue to provide electricity in the future.
