The observatory is at the south end of the football field in the southeast corner of the SSU campus Visitors are reminded to dress warmly and to call the observatory at 707-664-226"7 before coming if it appears possible that clouds may force can- cellation of the viewing.

The ob- servatory will be open from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. for ob- servations of Saturn and the impressive globular cluster in Hercules-approximately a million stars in one tight little ball. The spring schedule will end with the traditional public viewing night after commencement, Friday, June 6.

The artists, KVRE president John Detz notes, will retain full copyright on their material, assigning only one-time recording rights to K,VRE for the Sonoma Soundtrack album. Each .winning artist will receive a copy of the album and may, after the release of Sonoma Soundtrack, sell his or her material elsewhere. All profits from Sonoma Soundtrack will be donated to the Sonoma County Preparatory Orchestra, a nonprofit organization ser- ving young musicians in Sonoma County. Entries must be on tape and. to insure the best presentation of their work, cautions Detz, artists should submit their songs on reel4o- reel 7' IPS half-track, using high-quality tape and equipment. Deadline for entries in the first annual Sonoma Sound- Irack Competition is March 31. 1980. Entries should be sent to Sonoma Soundtrack, KVRE, P.O. Box 1712, Santa H,osa 95402.

Later in the program the group will be retested, and the results compared. The exercise program lasts for 45 minutes each morning while appropriate music serves as a background. "We vary the exercises each day," said Gale, "but you could say the morning is for running, jumping, leaping, crawling, hopping, rolling and games." Each participant will be given a confidential personal inventory to provide salient facts for the program. National studies indicate that about 50 percent of the people who start an exercise program quit after about two weeks. "If we should discover that a smoker is more likely to drop out of the program, then we might develop some kind of behavior modification program that would help him or her," said Gale. Other directions the program might develop are exercises for people who feel most comfortable in a group activity, those who like competitive games, and those who prefer to exercise by themselves. Gale is being assisted in the program by graduate students in the physical education department at SSU. LEGAL NOTICE an individual,.

LEWIS County Clerk Published 2-27, 3-5, 3-12, 3-19- 80 Wednesday, March 5, 1980 - Page 17 OPEC prices bring new PG&E electric rates request Citing another wave of OPEC price hikes as the main cause of a big jump in the prices it must pay for low- sulfur oil and natural gas, Pacific Gas and Electric Company today asked for authority to raise its electric rates on April t. If the utility's fuel costs remain constant, the increase would amount to $523 million in annual revenues. PG&E is seeking higher rates to cover estimated fuel costs over the next 12 months, and also to recover over a six- month period the amount it has already paid for fuel but has not yet collected ia rates. If the rates applied for were in effect for a full year - which they are not intended to be - the annual revenue increase would amount to $808.5 million: future rate ad- justments will alter this figure. More than 85 percent of PG&E's oil supply comes from OPEC countries: and Canada, which provides PG&E with nearly half of its natural gas, sets the price of its export gas based on the OPEC controlled price of oil. The new rate hike would be in addition to a fuel-related electric rate increase granted PG&E on February 13 of $440 million. That increase added $3.91 to a 500-kilowatt-hour residential bill, bringing it to $24.06, and was described by the California Public Utilities Commission as only a "Partial response" to meet PG&E's needs to offset oil and gas price increases. The new increase would raise a 500-kilowatt-hour household bill an additional $7.1 l. In the application filed with the CPUC PG&E silted the rate increase would only offset its own higher costs of fuel and purchased power and would not increase the company's earnings. A recent CPUC order allows electric utilities to file for fuel-related rate ad- justments three times a year to reflect on a more timely basis changes in fuel costs. Because of the time required to process its applications, the company said it has borrowed substantial sums to pay for fuel costs not now reflected in its rates. The company said more frequent fuel-related rate adjustments now permitted will hold down interest costs for such borrowing, thus keeping down the total costs passed on to customers PG&E noted that the February 13 rate increase had been applied for on October 31. At that time its oil cost was about $19 a barrel compared to an anticipated $26 a barrel as of April 1 this year. During the same time period, the utility's natural gas cost for electric plants will have gone from 30 cents per therm to an estimated 42 cents PG&E must rely on oil and natural gas to generate more than half the electricity required by its customers. The rest comes from renewable and alternative energy sources - hydroelectric and geother- mal plants - and from pur- chased power. "PG&E makes every effort to hold down its fuel costs and provide electricity by the most economical means possible," said Leland R. Gardner, manager of the utility's rate department. "However, most of these fuel prices are dictated by foreign countries and are beyond our control. "The only means by which our customers can hope to cope with these rising prices is through stringent energy conservation measures to keep usage to a minimum. "Even then, unfortunately, energy bills are going to continue taking a bigger bite out of consumer budgets. However," Gardner added, "getting our Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant int operation will save about 20, million barrels of oil a year and reduce the impact oE continuing OPEC price hikes." Gardner noted that financial assistance ia available for low-incomd persons needing help to pa PG&E bills and that local PG&E offices can refer customers to the appropriate: agencies for information or such assistance. -.:. :.; iil SRMH "Heartsaver" iil !il: Course begins I A one session learning opportunity, called a "Heartsaver" course, is being offered the general public by Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital the first Wednesday of each month, beginning March 5.
