Advice to Utilities The KiiiTcnt issue ol' Ban'on'.s Kiitnn- cial Weekly, which can .scarcely be accused of tin iiiili-coi-poratktn complex, contains comment on llio siiiiiilioii faced by public uiilily companies tlial appeals Lo us as sotimlly realistic. Tim Jnsttll debacle and thu re.sullH of various official mvcsiigiitions of linniiciii'g incllicvJs i)i tliu electrical utility iield have resulted in a widespread growth of scnliniDul for public ownership. Thai sentiment in based on no conviction thai public owner- shin is in anyway inherently superior to private. To the contrary it is fen- unilly recognized that public operation of any business is almost-sure to involve varying dejrri'i»s of waste, inof- liciency and other undesirable results of almost inevitable political interference with .sound management. Ijtit the public believes, not without t'ood reason, tbiii it has had considerably less tlunra square dciil from private concerns. In liii-gc part it has lurnwl to public ownership as thu lesser of two evils. WJiat oli't'clivu answer can llio utilities make to Ibis situation? Barron's says: "The whole matter boils down to the fact that private utilities exist ami prosper on public sullercnce and not on lc;;ii! prolcctian. To .stand upon Ifoej'r legal ritrlil.s in llic face ol' public opinion is merely lu court, more hostility and trouble. Their only salvation KS to reduce rates as rapidly -as is economically-"feasible, (o l -'mal;e -"concessions even at the cost of a fair return, if it is necessary to do so in order to preserve public t'ood will, and in every way to demonstrate that they are giving their customers adequate service, at the lowest possible cost." Utilities that follow such a policy— and il appears that a number of them Inivc already recognized its wisdom— will defeat''the demand for public ownership by eliminating the reason lor it. In the long run that is thu only effective way. BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK,) COURIER NEWS A Lesson from Russia Writing from Kus.w, Kichard Ihilli- bnrton, famed,' Memphis j^lobe (rotter and writer, tells in Sunday's Commercial Appeal of a correctional instilu- OUT OUR WAY lion Unit not merely reforms criminals but actually makes them "Hie riiosl valuable citizens, in any community into w|iicl) they move." Ilitlliburton is something of a romanticist. His (nles of wlinl lie has seen in strange places are so good Unit sometimes a suspicion Hint lie lias lent them a little imaginative color seems not unjustified. But in the article under discussion he is a (>il apologetic for having found anything tfoocl in llic land of the Soviets. So perhaps hisi story of this wonder prison may be taken at face value. If so it might be a good investment to send sonic of the gentlemen responsible for the management of our penal institution.-) to Russia on an educational toiir. 'Certainly we have much lo learn about prison methods. As we handle such matters now wo neither reform criminals nor protect society against them. We simply lock tliem up for a time, usually under conditions that tend to make them confirmed enemies of .society, and then turn them loose without slopping to inquire into the probable results.
