Opponents centered then 1 light on efforts to minimize federal-aid competition with privately-financed phone service. The bill would permit the Rura' Electrification A d m i n i s t r ation (REA1 to make loans for rural telephone -service the same as it has been doing for years in the Held oi electriciiy for farms. The loans, bearing two per cent interest, could be made to private. corporations, public agencies and cooperatives, with identical terms to all qualified borrowers. Loans could not be made in any stale having a state authority for telephone service regulation unless the state body gives its approval. The House Agriculture Commit- i tee, which is backing the bill, says that the legislation is the only practical way to provide farm homes with telephones. The committee said it does not agree w>th spokesmen for independent telephone companies that most of the nation's farmers can't ifford telephones and most of those who can afford them already have them. This, the committee said, "is arecisely the position" taken by the power industry when it opposed rural electrification. Opponents of the bill have called it a step towards socialization of the telephone industry through government financing. startling reductions 111 IN BORDKR CLASH—Lt. Willtarr C.
