'But wait —IT'S MUCH MORE THAN THAT! ... In many ways, il is one of the most significant words in your life, especially if you live and work in the South. •Noah Webster defines a kilowatt as a "unit of power." As such, it has been used for years as a unit of measurement to determine 1 the business activity of America, week by week. ... It is well recognized that where many kilowatts of electricity are generated and used, people arc busy—producing goods, making money, and enjoying prosperity Hint is drawn to them like a magnet. Electrically, the South leads America by a wide margin of growth. Between 1932 and 1942, its'capacity to generate and supply ii s own electric power increased 165%— half again as much as all the rest of the country. Think what this means to the South— and you! Clearly, it indicates that our vast natural resources and greatly expanded plant capacity will be geared together by the power of electricity—to manufacture new goods, provide new employment opportunities, produce new prosperity. A Greater South Is In the Making Typical of many progressive Southern industries, Lion Oil Refining Company, lliroug'h constant research and experimentation, lias succeeded in developing and is now producing from Southern crude oil, several components of 100 octane gasoline ... vastly improved lubricants... Butadiene, the basis of Buna-S synthetic rubber ... ingredients for explosives ... and other vital materials required for war.
