TWENTY-FOUR EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1948 Phon*. 4600 for * WANT 1WN Power Shortage Threat Seen Starting Battle Of Kilowatts o • By FRANCIS M. LE MAY WASHINGTON— {ff-)~~ The threat of power shortages, this Winter sets the stage today for a battle of kilowatts In the next Congress. It may rival In fury the public-private power fight over Muscle Shoals after World War I. The bip question Is: Should the •jroverrnnent invest new billions In dams and transmission lines or should the job be left to -private capital? One side soys the job Is. too big tor private utilities alone. The other contends these companies can do the Job and that huge government projects, supplanting private development, mean "Socialism." These developments shaped up the Issue: 1. The National- Security Resources Board cautioned 'that. the nation's power supply will be critically short in the next few weeks «nd will require voluntary conservation programs in several areas. 2. Rep. Rankin (D-Miss), one of the original sponsors of the Tennessee Valley Authority, immediately announced he will re-introduce a bill to create eight new regional authorities patterned after TVA— and to expand TVA. Senator-elect Kefauver (D-Tenn) said he is ready to carry the fight in the Senate for expansion of federal power developments: ' . He said 'his-organization again million dollar steam^generating plant: plement the strained TVA hydro- will oppose construction of a multi- at New Johnsonville, Term., to sup-(electric system. Kefauver announced he will press for the New Johnsonville project and predicted Congress, which rejected it this year, will provide,, the money when the issue if present*! again.. ; ._ «? <& 1 I 3.
