move faster to create jobs, as
some lawmakers have said they
will try to do. "To force more
money, faster, into the system
would risk poor administration,"
Carter said.
Chairman Charles Schultze of
the President's Council of Eco-
nomic Advisers held open the
possibility that tax rebates for
Americans could be increased,
especially if the severe winter
worsens and Americans spend
their rebate for extra fuel.
The chief components of the
program had been outlined by
administration officials in re-
cent days. They inclu'de $50 tax
rebates for nearly every Ameri-
can this year, with the total
rebate cost estimated at $11.4
- Permanent tax reductions

totalling $4 billion each year for
taxpayers in low and middle-in-
come brackets, up to an income
level of about $17,500 annually
for a married couple.
- An additional $4 billion for
emergency public works pro-
jects, on top of $2 billion al-
ready authorized.
- New spending totalling $4.1
billion to create 415,000 more
public service employment jobs
over the next two years.
- An additional $1.9 billion
for 346,000 new jobs training
and employment positions un-
der the Comprehensive Train-
ing and Employment Act (CE-
TA), with special programs for
youths, Vietnam-era veterans,
Indians and migrant workers.
- Another $1.1 billion for an
anti-recession revenue - sharing
fund to support local and state
government jobs in high unem-
ployment areas.
- Reductions in business tax-

his election that he hoped to re-
duce it to 6.5 per cent by the
end of this year, although it now
appears he may fall short of
this goal.
But Carter told Congress,
"Our program only promises

The severe cold blitz that has
left at least 75 Americans dead
and 'sliced deeply into natural
gas supplies has forced millions
of Americans off the job or out
.of school.
The gas shortage forced the
layoff of more than 1.5 million
workers in areas where plants
and businesses were ordered to
close or reduce operations so
available heating fuel could be
used for homes in the North-
east and Midwest.

Home Insulation
Finance Plan to help

Detroit Edison is a concerned participant in America's
crusade for conservation. The wise use of energy plays
one of the most important roles in that effort. Because
proper home insulation offers great energy and cost-
saving benefits, Detroit Edison has designed a plan, in
cooperation with the Michigan Public Service
Commission, to help you insulate or increase the
insulation in your home.
No matter how you heat your
home, you can benefit.
If you use gas, oil, propane, coal or electricity as your primary
heating fuel and you are a Detroit Edison customer living in
your own home anywhere in southeastern Michigan, Detroit
Edison's Home Insulation Finance Plan may help you bring
your home up to today's energy-saving standards. First, with
help in selecting a licensed insulation contractor. Second,
with convenient financing.
Even newer homes may be out of date.

Start with a free home insulation check-up.
Find out how your home measures up. Contact your own
licensed insulation contractor, or call your nearest Detroit
Edison office for the names of licensed contractors who will
examine your home free of charge. They can advise you on
the amou - and type of insulation your home needs. The
cost is probably a lot less than you might think. And the
savings will mount'up every winter from now on.
Detroit Edison's Home Insulation
Finance Plan: the Plan that saves.
Insulate yourself against the increasing cost of keeping your
home comfortable. Take advantage of Detroit Edison's Home
Insulation Finance Plan one of two ways:
1. Make a down payment to Detrbit Edison of at least 15% of
the total cost of insulating your home. The company will
finance the balance of your cost up to $750 without
interest or carrying charges provided the balance is paid
within 90 days* A bill for the balance will be sent to you
by Detroit Edison, separate from your regular monthly
electric bill.
2. Make a down payment to Detroit Edison of at least 15% of
the total cost of insulating your'home. The company will
finance the balance of your cost up to $750 payable in up
to 48 equal installments (a period of 4 years) at an annual
percentage rate of 11.13 percent* A coupon book will
be provided for convenient payments.
.You must hold title to your home and have not had your electric service discontnued
for non-payment of an undisputed bill within the 12-month period preceding the
application for financing
Pick up a free copy of "Detroit Edison's Home
Insulation Finance Plan" at any customer office.

Rackham Trio
(Continued from Page 5)
The short Scherzo, allegro
which comprised the third move-
ment was filled with nice stac-
cato phrases that ended in hea-
vy interludes. The thriving tem-
pq of the Presto movement,
however, was too leaden.
The Brahms Quartet is a dif-
ficult piece due to its violent
outbursts and sudden decrescen-
does. Benning Dexter, the guest
pianist, was a master of tnter-
pretation; however, he tended to
jump ahead of the other play-
ers and destroy the timing.
The third movement of this-
work especially epitomized the
musicians's organizational prob-
lems. A very formal movement,
it was played with heaviness,
unnecessaryeseparations and
muffled notes.


It's true. Even newer homes may need more insulation to save
the maximum amount of money on heating bills. Homes built
before 1940 may have no insulation at all. Those built after
1940 may have some insulation but probably not enough to
meet today's higher standards.
Detroit Edison recommendations include R-44 insulation for
ceilings and R-13 for walls and floors in homes with electric
heat. In homes with gas, oil or propane heating Detroit
Edison recommends a minimum of R-19 insulation in ceilings
and R-13 in walls. Anything less isn't doing the best job.
Bundle up your home and save a bundle.
More than 50% of the energy you use in your home goes to
provide heat. So it makes sense to reduce the amount of
energy you use for heating. Depending on when your house
was built, and how it was insulated, improved insulation can
save you up to 30% on your present fuel bill. If you have air-
conditioning, you'll save on cooling costs, too. So you can
see how insulation pays for itself. And your home will be
quieter and more comfortable all year.
