Electricity Suggests a New Way Out That electrical equipment .scheme evolved by the Tennessee Valley Authority miRht he worth another look. There is just a chance that it could offer us the way to one of those great industrial booms that sc.t the wheels humming all across the country. By making arrangements to finance consumer purchases of electrical c<|uii>- meht, and also by seeing to it that unlimited quantities of choaji electric power are available, the government hopes to extend the use of- electricity in the home to a greater extent than anything previously drcamej of. » And if the Tennessee Valley experi- 'ment works, and proves contagions, the groundwork would be laid for a vast industrial.revival. .. • ' • • * So far there is hardly it home in the country that makes the maximum potential use of electricity. There are ciectrici refrigerators, electric stoves, electric mangjes, electric vacuum sweepers, electric heaters, and so on through a long list—but how many homes are equipped with all of them'.' Only an insignificant minority. Suppose, now, that through cheaper electricity rates and cheaper equipment, electrification of the home really gets under way as a national movement; suppose, for example, Ihjtt some 15 OR:20 million householder? begin to spend around $500 apiece or butter on electrical equipment. You don't have to meditate very long to sec that this would touch off a' business boom of enormous proportions. A dream of that kind mny smind a bit over-optimistic. It can be objected, of course, that 20 million householders might have difficulty in finding ?60t> apiece to spend on electrical c<(ui|>- ment. Still, an even larger number of citizens managed to find th<-l much money to buy automobiles in the decade ol' the twenties. If it happened once, it can happen again. Senator George W. Morris, who fathered the whole Muscle Shoals experiment, believed thai clveap power and cheap equipment will open up "a new world" for America. There is better than ;ui outside chance that he is entirely right. It Crop Values Up • That someUiiiiK preHy substantial actually has been done to better the condition of the farmer is shown by the U. S, Bureau of Agricultural Economics crop report for 1033, recently issued in Washinrlo 1 :. This report shows that the value of the nation's farm produce in 1933 jumped fully $1,000,000,000 over the figures for 1032. Total value of all farm e>'ops grown in the United Slates in 1« is set at slightly better than HOOO.OOO.OOO— as compared with a 1!W!J valuation of approximately §2,879,000,000. II is worth remembering, too, that this increase look place in spile of diminished production—or perhaps, if the farm doctors at Washington are correct, liecacye of it. Total volume of crops for the year was; unusually low. liv one way or another, farm prices have 'taken a healthy Iwnsl.'' Whether • this happened because if or in spite of the federal farm program, it is a good omen, for Ihe future. Declining Aristocracy The pressure which a changing world puts on an established society seldom was better illustrated than in the recent decline of Kr.ijlaiid's old and blue-blooded G'rosley family. This family was one of the last in •Englaqd to remain in po.-wession of an estate 'granted in the time of William the Conqueror. For 28 generations the family had made it,* home on this estate. It had seen Knglaml develop from u feudal kingdom to an industrial democracy, had seen ruling dynasties come and go, and il had liecn itself unchanged. Hut now the end has come. Rcon- oinic conditions have forced Hie family to put the estate up for yale. It lias been bought, according to cable dispatches, by a real csUte. man "for speculative purposes." Changing limes and business depressions have ctil wide swaths in England's aristocracy. Tr.: breaking, of this tie with feudal days is a symbol of the shift which English society is undergoing. von let Marvin go right on dunking 1 THIS CURIOUS WORLD > (^^^••••l*MMMMMMMMMBMVaBa>i^BniMA^Mi«4M*^*«^ K ^ M ^i taM ' William!
