make it. That goes for

at home, then trade at

the local merchants,
have your welfare at

re PROSPECTIVE BUILDERS!
BECAUSE of eme-gency priorities on copper wire and
ether materials essential to our country's defense
effort, we are obliged to alter our practice with
respect to extension of service to locations not on existing
Priority rules covering use of materials make it important
that anyone who contemplates building on a site which is
even a short distance removed from existing distribution
lines should discuss with us in advance of starting to build,
the ouestion of availability of Electric Service. In other
werds. it Is necessary that you FIRST find out whether we
are allowed, under priority rulings, to make the required
Electric Service extension.
This change of po'icy is due not to any shortage of electric
power in Virginia Electric and Power Company served
territory, but to a shortage of materials necessary to de
fense. It is our desire to co-operate fully with the Govern
ment in the defense program and to that end we are ap
pealing in this way to all prospective builders for their
help in living up to the spirit as well as the letter of all
emergency rulings governing use of materials.
