The TV A Challenge The constitutionality of the Tennessee Valley Authority is under attack by the Edison Blcctric Institute, rcnre- switint' 80 per cent of the electric utility investment in this country, and by other interests—notably tho coal industry of the Appulachian region. But the life or death of the TVA program, will not be delermmud on that basis. Commenting on the opinion given the Kdison in.stitule by two eminent lawyers that (ho act under which the TVA is 1'imctiojiiiij,' is "palpably unconstitutional," the Wall Street Journal, in an editorial reprinted yesterday by the Memphis Press-Scimitar, remarked thai "in modern times the courts do not lonjf a mat ureat siii'fft-s of the popular will." Tlic Edison institute's lawyers may be right or wrong in regard to the coiislitiilioiiality of the TVA, but if the TVA program continues to enjoy public coiiliclencc ways will be found io gut around constitutional limitations. In Hit- long'>(iii tin} TVA will survive and the idea it ombwiks will spi-ead if it demonstrates an'ability to do more for Hie people •. it serves Hum private iuluresls arc abb m- willing lo do. TJiis is the challenge 'il presents lo Urn members-of the Edison Electric IiihliLulc. They niay impede its progress, tlicy inay force mod- iliciilion in detail;, of its organi/.iilion and program, but they-cuiiuut slop -it except by pradicitl demonstration of their ability lo'do its job; at least as effectively and economically.' The TVA, in dVect, is'a challenge lo tin; vaiinlwl initiative and efficiency of private uutcrpnsi: lo show ils stuff; The electrical industry has the right and duty to insist that the %VA "yard- slick" be an honuht measure. The TVA has promised that it will not un>: public opinion with i-nle.s lower than UK: cost of pioducing and distributing electric win cut. It should be forced lo keep that promise, thus marking the for a fair race. The private utilities ought not to be afraid lo meet the challenge on that basis. Let Out to Shoot-Quail!

Bigger Game For Uncle Sam It is worth noticing that, at just about lliu limo when l!;iljy Puce Nelson was dying an unla'meiilcd death from Uncle Sum's bullets, New York's most notorious "beer baron," Dutch Schult-/, was .-nin'oiideriiig to the authorities on an income, tax evasion dim-go anil was laiKiujshing in jail for want of S50,- 000 bail.' ; Two types of criminals are represented hero., Nelson was of the old Jesse James typo—lawless, t|iiick- shooting freebooter,-a strong-arm man |)iii'o and simple. Schult-/., on the other hand, is of the big business variety of crook; the". Capone type, which killed" and sluggqd only incidentally lo tho main business of producing ami selling. This second.type probably represents' a greater menace to our institutions' Ihan the firei. The downfall of Nelson ' was, spectacular; that of Dutch Schulta is .actually more of a feather in the cap. : . ^Tfic Utrc ofT-ilic ianiimay prove _ lo :lhi;.:clt.y.|)rc(l us; Ihc :-liKhU,oI llic city to : those who iiiiyht, belter have stuck lo llic soli. —Hobcrl 'Whllkin,consult!!])!, to .
