Clapp, chairman ol Tennessee Valley Authority, today defended TVA against charges ol Communism and accused tin? private power utilities of tryip; tlil the axrnrjy lor .selfish reasons. Oapp recently was named chairman ol 'I VA to succeed David Lillenthal who had been appointee chairman of lh" Atomic. Energy Commission. Dr-liate raf>etl in Confer days. [lurini; which Com- JiHinist c!i:irxes xori' brought several timer,, before the appointments v.vre confirmed. Clap]) .oid he had studied a list of rural cower boards in char;;e of dKi limit ing '1 VA power and fount! it lo ife "as American as a ham sandwich not n Holshevik amonn f .hem." Clap;; .;aid that wink- efforts aro still lji-!iu! mane 1'j discredit TVA operalion as wasteful government sncndimr antl ".socialistic", it is "hard In convince an Alabama states riRhtcr or a Tennessee mountain far,tier that his publicly- owned pnvei 1 system makes him a beonlrd Communist." Tiie TVA hear' accused "hiulilv paid proi.-aL'andisLs", including Lhos? emnlo-.ccl by the power companies, of puttimj out "spiiricms charts that TViA is a snare and a delusion, a socialistic scheme or something i{|i:alLv bad." He' said the people in the Tennessee Valley Area, howtver. are not Tooled by these charges because Ihe "realities of TVA arc visible to the nuked eye" in that section. Clapp said that by "?. neat statistical trick" the Edison Eteclrlc Institute, statistical organization "f the electric power industry; occasionally put-i out misleading statistics about TVA. 'He said, for example, that EEI charged that TVA's net income of Sl6.ai1.CCa in fiscal I843 did not exist. Hut the institute, Claup s-ikl, charced against the agency ali expense of experimental chemical operations, agricultural antl forest development activities, farm test dernon- strallons, research, navigation, flood control and the interest on all Hems. Such figuring, Clapp said, is like charging a municipal power opera-1 lioc with expenses of the inlie?, fire and health department.
