dropped $4,400,000,000 to a $176,

expenses needed to cover the cost
of butane, the application of the
fuel adjustment clause was neces
sary in order that the company
could meet its operating expenses
and provide service.
"It can be noted from the tabu
lation in the report that the rates
of the company for 20 therms of
gas were the lowest in the state
for the period ending March 1,
1946, even including the Portland
Gas & Coke Company on an
equivalent basis for their Portland
division. The advance of 5.1 cents
per therm of gas furnished the
user would Increase the price at
Roseburg to the point comparable
to, or lower than, service pro
vided by the other gas utilities
operating in Oregon.
"The California-Pacific Utilities
Company's rate is $5.82 for 20
therms of gas, while the state ave
rage for the equivalent use is
.bl as of Marcn l, 1949. The per
centage increase, however, is
high, and is considerably higher
than the average of the state due
to the company's very favorable
conditions existing between the
supplier or butane and the utility
prior to July 1, 1948;
"The only other alternative to
the fuel adjustment clause would
be to make a general increase of
tariffs of the company to meet
the additional costs placed upon It,
which we feel would not be Justi
fied in view of the present market
conditions. We feel that sometime
In the future the price of butane
will decrease, and the application
of the fuel oil adjustment clause
will automatically reduce the
price per th.erm in the same pro
portions as it was increased."
DeCicco Backed
By Celia Gavin
THE DALLES, Ore., May 17.
UP) Wasco County Democratic
leader Celia L. Gavin, a former
state vice chairman, has come
to the defense of Democratic
party treasurer Mike De Cicco.
In a letter to Executive Com
mittee Secretary Volney Martin
in Portland, she said she was
astonished by the attempt of par-
ty leaders to oust De Cicco. She j
said the officers Involved in the
ouster did not have authority to ,
change the results of the State
Centra Committee election. !
Her letter was in response to
a mail ballot sent out by Martin
asking for a vote to declare the ,
treasurer's office vacant. She 1
noted ft said five of six officers
had asked that the ballot be I
made. In this connection, Miss !
Gavin said four of the five were
without voting status on the Ex- j
ecutive Committee. !
Named on the ballot ouster
move were National Committee
man Monroe Sweetland and Com
mitteewoman Nancy Honeyman
Robinson and State Chairman
William L. Josslin.
Miss Gavin said she hoped De
Cicco had a successful term and
that he should be encouraged to
continue placing the party's fi
nances on a sound basis. She said
previous treasurers had failed.
The ouster move got under
way last week after De Cicco
and his ex-secretary gave dif
fering versions of a fight at
