The rate in- creases were said to be necessary be- cause of wholesale power increases made by the Nebraska Public Power District When George Washington's army reached Valley Forge in December, 1777, they pitched their tents on hard, cold ground. Washington knew that shelters must be built immediately for the army to survive. He ordered the building of rough log huts measuring 14 hy 16 feet. Each hut housed 12 soldiers. The officers' huts had fewer inhabitants. The sawmill in the nearby community had been destroyed by the British thereby necessitating ingenu- ity in roofing materials. Washington offered a prize to the hut with the best roofing substitute.
