We surprise her
Recently an Omaha woman told us the Nebraska
Power Company never ceases to surprise her.
•'First of all,” she declared, "you’d think with
all this wartime demand for electricity, it would
have to be rationed . • . but it isn’t!
•'Then, you’d expect, since living costs have gone
way up, that electric rates would also climb
• . . but they’re as low as ever!
•'And finally, the Nebraska Power people
are as courteous as ever! Seems like they never
heard of 'war nerves’!”
• • •
We’re proud of the fact that we have always
had plenty of electricity to meet wartime demands
—and your own electric needs! However, low rates
and dependable service are harder to maintain in
wartime. As for courtesy—we’ve specialized
in courtesy for more than 25 years.
With us, courtesy is a must!
We think it’s our private business management,
and the hard work of experienced employees,
that have enabled us to continue giving you
the same quality electric service in war as in peace.

a sales tax will “almost certainly”
be adopted if the gas tax amendment
is approved. Proponents of sound

There are many other, and perhaps
better, reasons why BOTH measures

The Chamber committee discovered
a larger potential loss with regard to
the proposed gas tax restrictive mea
| sure. Under the present arrangement
which would be discontinued if the
proposed amendment were approved,
the state assistance fund received $2,
081,4X5 for the year ending July 1.
This amount also would need to be
made up through Some other form of
taxation. Thep roposed amendment
does not prohibit collection of the
present full tax, but would divert it
exclusively to highway use. Attor
neys have questioned whether, under
the amendment, cities, towns and
villages might not lose large sums
for paving and maintenance because
of the ambiguity of the proposal.
