Jebb, manager of tha western division of the Connecticut Light and Power Co. yesterday branded "A lie" a recent report of the Rural Electrification Administration that 710 additional farms in Conn, had been- electrified by REA in the past year, leaving only 111 without electricity. Mr. Jebb said that electrification of farms in Connecticut has been only through private electrical companies, with no aid by REA. He spoke at a meeting of the Kiwanis Club in The Elton. Mr. Jebb emphasized that governmental reports of the type referred to were instrumental in influencing Americans' opinions on the government's program of nationalizing industries and professions. The speaker pointed out that of the 22,241 farms in Connecticut, a total of 14,681 have been electrified by CL&P. In the company's area, he continued, there were 79 farms without electric service last June 3Q. Twenty-nine of these farms were given service since then, leaving 50 of which 44 were offered service but refused it, he added. Mr. Jebb stated that a professional study made under sponsorship of the New England Council showed that 157,000 kilowatt hours remains to be developed in New England, outside of Maine. About 420,000 KWH may be developed if Maine is included. But a governmental report declared that 3 1-3 million KWH remain to be developed in New England, he said. This estimate is without apparent foundation, said the speaker. He asserted that many "backdoor" advances are being made in New England to create government-sponsored power, Including the setting up of a New England Power Authority! Mr. Jebb said that a recent CL&P survey showed that of the- people asked whether they wanted ele.> Jtricity from the government or private sources. 46 per cent favored private; 30 per cent, government, and 24, no opinion. The survey alsq showed that 62 per cent knew a private company served them while 38 per cent gave other answers. Of those who had heard of the Tennessee Valley Authority, 45 per cent said they approved it, 10 per cent, disapproved, and 45 per cent, no opinion. Of those who had heard of the TVA, 30 per cent approved a TVA setup in Conneeltaut,' 27 per cent, disapproved, and 43, no opinion,' the speaker said.; . Mr. Jebb de'clared that while food and other co'sts hay». gone up from 150 to 200'percent'since 1939 while the electric rate has ' gone down about six mills.
