(UP) — Kuril) Electrification Administrator Claude 11. Wickaid charged today that .private power Interests lire trying to "embarrass, retnrd and hamper" the government's program to supply electricity to farmers. Wickard's charges were made in J,-confidential letter miulcd to :i sc- •jcct group of land grant college official!!, farm leaders and fiinu or- ganisations. Sources close to the REA chief said Hie letter wns the start of n campaign by Wickard agains'., private utilities who he feels arc blocking tlie federal program. Wickard's letter charged spec! fically that private power groups had blocked more Mian $6,OM,Oi)0 In rural electrical expansion 111 West Virginia although two-thirds of the stag's (arms are without electricity "The same power company Interests are continuing to utilize every means at their command to embarrass, retard ami hamper the RKA program," he wrote.

"In almost a score of states." lie said, "cooperatives are subjected . . . . to dual rate wholesale power contracts which, by prescribini,' unjustifiably higher rates for certain power loans, assist the power companies in their efforts to control and dominate the affairs of the cooperatives."

"The power companies are not offering their programs with clean hands," he wrote.
