Utility customers asked to contribute $1

'Thousands of utility customers are
being asked to contribute an extra
dollar with their bills this winter to help
prevent the cutoff of heat to the poor.
The voluntary programs generally
supplement state laws or regulations
prohibiting or limiting the elimination
of service to people who fall behind in
electric and gas payments during the
heating season.
AN ASSOCIATED Press spot check
yesterday showed most plans are
similar: Customers get a notice with
monthly bills, asking them to con-
tribute $1 to a fund administered by a
social service agency. The utility
generally matches or adds to con-
tributions.
"It means those in the community
who are more fortunate can help those
who are less fortunate pay their bills,"
said William Green of the Iowa-Illinois
Gas and Electric Co. in Rock Island,
Ill.
The Iowa-Illinois program is called
Project AIDE-Aid In a Dollar for
Energy. Company shareholders are
donating $10,000 to get the plan started
and are adding $1 for every $5 con-
tributed by customers, up to $2,000 per
month.
A SIMILAR program started about.
six months ago by two Arizona utilities,
Arizona Public Service Co. and Salt
River Project, raised $149,000 through
September, according to Capt. Duane
Decker, the Phoenix-area ad-
ministrator of the Salvation Army's
;Center for Social Services. Decker said
Airlines ra
from the Associated Press
-.The nation's major airlines have
raised fares on many of their domestic
flights by 5 percent, but industry
analysts said yesterday the increase
niay do litle to offset the lost profits
caused by fare wars on other routes.
"It will hae the positive effect to the
extent that the average-fare yield will
*be better than otherwise, but I doubt
very much it will be 5 percent better,'
said Charles H. Hanneman, who follows
airlines for the investment firm Thom-
son McKinnon Securities Inc.
ELIOT FRIED of Sherson-American
Express Inc. said, "on a near-term
basis the increase is good but it's not

924 families had been helped by one-
time payments of back bills through the
program.
Arizona Public Service and Salt
River limit contributions to exactly $1
per customer; people who want to give
more are told to send the money direc-
tly to the Salvation Army. A third
Arizona utility, Southwest Gas Corp.,
announced its own "Help Heat"
program earlier this week and said it
would accept donations of any size and
would match them with up to $50,000.
Utility officials said the recession
and, in some cases, rate increases have
boosted the customer delinquency rate.
Company spokesmen in most areas
said they turn off the power only as a
last resort-particularly if it is used for
heating-but they warned that the cost
of unpaid bills ultimately falls on the
customer.
THE PUBLIC Utility Commission in
Ohio, like regulatory agencies in many
states, has declared a moratorium on
shutoffs from Dec. 1 to March 31 and
has ordered restoration of services to
some customers whose power already
has been turned off for non-payment of
bills.
"Obviously, we are going to be get-
ting less income from December
through April," said J. Lee Bailey,
spokesman for the Cleveland Electric
Illuminating Co. "Any money we have
to borrow will cost us some and those
costs will then go into the rate base to
be shared by all customers."
Gas and electric customers in Pen-

nsylvania must be notified 10 days
before the power' is shut off. The
utilities also must send a represen-
tative to make personal contact with
the customer three days before service
is disconnected.
The Pennsylvania Power & Light Co.
of Allentown has announced that star-
ting in January customers will be asked

for $1 for a fund for the needy; company
employees will be asked for similar
donations through a payroll-deduction
plan. "The need for energy assistance
is great and goes beyond resources
committed by the federal and state
governments," said Grayson McNair,
company vice president for consumer
and community services.

Last year, generally considered the
industry's worst ever, the airlines
posted total operating losses of $421
million, and this year the losses could
