There is enough electric power today for all essential civilian and war production needs. Careful planning has provided a greater reserve capacity than before Pearl Harbor. There is every reason to believe that all demands will continue to be met. (But don't waste electricity, just because it isn't rationed!) • ^ This power is being produced more cheaply and efficiently than 3 TL S *JF ever before.

It is their work and planning, their skill and experience, that keep electricity available and cheap at a time when war has made so many things scarce and expensive. And hack of this industry is the American business system—made up of thousands of self-supporting, lax- paying businesses that are doing the world's best war job because they're free to do it—because they're free to use their American ingenuity in their own way.
