McKay City Clerk, INVASION SOON? A high government official has pre- dicted that American war casualties may be tripled within 90 (lays. Does this mean that a full-scale in- vision of the continent, or major thrusts in the Pacific are scheduled for early 19447 American losses for the entire war thus far total slightly over 130,000, including those killed, wounded, missing in action, and those taken prisoner. Action that would triple these losses would certainly have to be of a scope and intensity =~ not yet even approached. However, military leaders have fre- quently warned us that the hardest m fighting--and the most costly--still lies ahead. It seems logical that as we move in on the German and J~.p- anese "inner rings" of fortifications, the going will become increasingly severe. Vhatever the cest may be, W we must pay it, and wc cannot indulge in the wishful thinking that the war will be won through the collapse of our enemies from within. In American homes--especially those with service stars in the windows-- plies for or receives water from such water works systmn, then an annual minimum charge for each separate water service of water connection shall be the stun of $12.00 per year, payable monthly at the rate of $1.00 per month, which annual nfinimum ~eharge is applied to the payment of the water rates for all water supt)lied during such year for such water ser- vice of water connection, find in ad- dition thereto for all water supplied during any one calendar month in ex- cess of 1,000 gallons per month, and which water rates are hereby fixed and estaHished for water used each month as follows: For all water furnished each calen- dar month over and above the first 1,fl00 gallons above specified the charge shall be for each 1,000 gallons :at the rate of Eighty-five Cents (85c); and for each fractional part of 1,0(X) gallons over and above such first 1,000 gallons the charge shall be at the rate of Eighty-five One-Thousandths (85/10001 Cents per gall,on. Provided, however, that where water is served through a .permanent metcr in excess of a 3/4 inch meter the min- imum monthly charge for such servic~ from one separate meter shall be as follows : 1" service $4.00 1 1/4" service 4.50 1 1/2" service 5.(X} 2" service 5.50 3" service 6.00 The following water rates shall be charged and collected for temper':: service as foll.ows: ~,Vater 4or each barrel of lime or cement, Ten Cents.
