Some insurance com- . panics only seem to worry about what's on your boat, not how you drive it. But SAFECO is concerned on both counts. In fact, if you equip your boat with safe- ty features in- stead of exotic equipment, you can get broader coverage for low- er rates. And, you can even get up to a 10c~ discount if you complete an approved pow- er boat handling course. Just an- other couple of reasons why you can al- most always save with SAFECO.

Oil and gas are becoming more scarce. Their prices have risen dramatically and probably will continue to rise. Much of our supplies of oil and gas come from foreign sources. As lubricants, petrochemicals, and other industrial needs, these valuable re- sources have better uses than simply burning them for space heating. For these reasons many of our cus- tomers are converting their heating to electricity. And for the same reasons we can't expect to use these resources to generate electricity. If these limited resources are to last, if we are going to put them to their best use, electricity must replace much of the present burning of oil and gas in homes and industry. / 1000 MW electric generating plant would require 420 million gallons of residual fuel oil annually if oil-fired. Or 64 billion cubic feet of natural gas per year. Or the plant could be fueled with 30 tons of enriched uranium of which 97% can be recycled and reused anntJally. Electricity from nuclear poWered gen- erating plants saves oil and gas. A In 1975, nuclear powered electric generating plants saved the nation the equivalent of more than 10 billion gallons of oil at a saving of over 2 billion dollars. Saving scarce oil and gas is another reason why your PUD has chosen nuclear power to generate the electricity that will meet your future needs. I Mr. and Mrs. Joseph G.

FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 30 - AUGUST 5, 1976 If your birthday is this week, you place great faith in your abilities. Although you may see no alternative to success and superiority, at times you could appear quite conceited to others. Since elegance and constant refinement appeal to you, participate in cultural activities. You should also seek avenues of self-expression, for you have a strong urge to. give life and form to your own ideas. ARIES (March 21 - April 19) If you feel depressed during the week, do something of an uplifting nature to soothe your emotions, a concert, lecture, or inspired literature could prove beneficial. But don't vent your frustrations with sharp, critical words to others. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) Your partner may pleasantly surprise you. Although you might feast on social pleasures this week, you should watch for over-ind~dgence. If you allow your desires free rein, you could become rather indiscreet in your action. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) This week would be a good time to attend to any physical complaints. If they go unchecked, they could become chronic. Expressing your thoughts to your partner could bring about productive changes in your daily routine. CANCER (June 21 , July 22) Act impulsively to achieve your goals and you might reduce your finances. As the week progresses, your mind will be more inspired and analytical. You may find yourself travelling to a social function, where the unexpected could occur. LEO (July 23 - August 22) While you may feel restrained in your self expression, an overbearing reaction could injure your reputation. Look for comfort in your affectionate relationships. If you find something for your home, buy it at the end of the week. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Long distance travel this week might result in problems and delays enroute. If you involve yourself in new and original interests, you could make a startling personal discovery. The expression of your thoughts may impress those around you. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) Ambitious to achieve, you should expect some obstacles to your plans this week. Be cautious not to incur excessive debts. If you take time to ,reason things out, you" could find the means to increase your finances. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Even if you feel wobbly, stand on your own two feet this week. Listen too closely to the advice of your partner, and it may affect your position. An idea or meeting could profoundly change your aims. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) -- Control your enthusiasms and appetite, or you could injure your health. You may feel optimistic about your long-range plans. As your reasoning faculties are strengthened this week, calmly reflect upon what you seek out of life. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) In seeking perfection ask it of yourself first. If you are overbearing in your demands of others, conflicts could arise with your loved ones. From consideration and understand- ing might spring innovative ideas for the realization of your plans. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Due to your partners behavior, ideas of escape to pacific isles could intoxicate your mind. However, if you will endure, by the latter part of the week your partner could be both generous and beneficial to your reputation, PISCES (February 19- March 20) Your willingness to help others may win you praise this week. However, if you try to accomplish too m: ay things, you could affect your health. Listen to your partner, for they might be an inspiration to you.
