For Goose and Gander A: contemporary who ht.-i entlnis- iftsticully welcomed tha promise of cheap electric current thiMi^h TV A competition with private producers of power holds up his editorial hands in horror at the report that (he residents of the new city of Novels, tiie model town the TVA plans near ilie Morris (him, will live in govcrnine-nl huilt houses, work in government huilt l'nc- torics, and buy merchandise ul cost in a govcrnnitnt owned departnient store. "Such excursions into the realm of private business," he says, "may wreck the whole TVA program." The fact is. of, that the whole TVA program is a social's! ic "excursion into, the realm of private hus- incss." And anyone who finds no cause for alarm in the competition with private business : whi';h is involved on a huge scale in the public jwwer 'phase of the TVA should l;nd it possible to control his fears 'concerning 'such petty hits of socialism as may he incidental to the Norris city development; , i :l WrH •|;'','.-{.,(r>'?}! ? ' : '' The public generally seems at present inclined to look wilh fnvor upon governmental production and distribution of electric power. The reason is that most of us believe, and nut without good reason, thai the private companies oujjagud in tint business have botched their job at iur expense. The same criticism might he applied, however, with varying degrees of validity, to numerous other lines of business.—'And those ol us who welcome public invasion of ore lieid of private business ought to te willing to acknowledge that simih.r invasion of other fields—even our own—would have ctjual justification in logic and morality.

Thev «1ll le urn a: 8:30 tonight knowing nothing about the flre CHURCH EXCUSES By QM. W. BartMa . Everything seems lo start out small at the beginning just as our Saturday Night Club started. At first, there wa^ only two or three ojuplc.s meeting oil Saturday Night first in one home, then the other. For amusement we plnyed. bridge ind our refreshments consisted of sandwiches and coffee. After coffee the men discussed their lodge nnd business affairs and the ladies, home and church work. Maters run along this way until i et It be known that I could qive them Ihlrjgs to do and think about hai made the evening all but too short and as our crowd increased nil entirely different class of refreshments, as well as entertainment, had to be planned to satisfy the most of them and thai Is where my early social training stood me in hand. Il's imiwssible lo Bet a crowd together without some trying to take things in hand )ut my ability as a leader helped — to keep things in hand. Since a little bit easier to get real refreshments properly labeled, our parties are real lively and we are so busy you seldom hear the ladies mention either home or church. At limes T find my Ingenuity taxed .o. the limit for satisfying entertainment. We are now planning to work out some dunce steps using urt as a motif or background I iiavc been reading some of a colony where tiic Adam and Eve mouf seems to be the basis of the liead man's Idea of the game, or whatever it Is they are playing I may visit this colony and take a tew notes.
