Plainly those who would be interested normally in seeking profitable outlet for their savings in this field are gun-shy when they view the trend toward government intrusion on terms which in no sense constitute "fair competition." A recent committee report on the subject painted the picture in these words: "While denying the wisdom of federal aid to, and federal participation in, public ownership and competition, we believe that, when such activity is engaged in, there should be assurance of fair play and fair treatment toward privately owned electric utilities. To this end, public owned utilities should be subjected to rules embracing quality and cost of service, accounting taxes, financing, preferences or subsidies available to one form of ownership and not available to the other. In general, there should be provision of equal regulation of public and private utility agencies by federal and by state regulatory, bodies, as the case may be in each particular instance." This special committee in its report, along with" calling for a restatement of the chamber's fundamental objection to government competition and government ownership, suggested these three steps: · "t' Re * tei ?tion ol the chamber's policy calling for effective regulation by state commissions and where it is necessary and within its proper jurisdiction by the federal power commission ,,, M- deration calling for equal regulation of public and private utilities. Such regulation should aim to prevent destructive competition. It should show the unbalance between the two because of sovereign powers inherent in government that inure to the oenefit of its agencies. "3. A declaration calling lor legally established rules of general application regarding the pur- cnase of private utility properties by governmental agencies for use and operation as publicly owned utility systems, or parts thereof' the object of such purchase being the avoidance of destructive competition." No fair-minded person can look at TVA with- X,put admitting that the so-called "yardstick" which 5§^|as to be created by the expenditure of the government millions is of rubber. It measures noth- ; mg and proves nothing--unless it is that the government's activities thus far in the field of electric supply have been one ghastly failure up to this time. We refuse to budge an inch from our long-held conviction that there is no job which private enterprise can do at all that it can't do infinitely better and cheaper than can government * * * Diversion's Entering Wedge QPPONENTS of the propolal to draw on the primary road fund for substantial sum to use on so-called farm to market roads in Iowa have repeatedly called attention to the danger of the diversion becoming an "entering wedge" to greater diversions in years to come. Now they are getting down to cases, as the following from the pen of Justin Barry, editor of the Cherokee Times reveals. ' _., t " A ?'" d . y of conditions now prevailing in the state of Wisconsin should give Iowa a hint as to what invariably follows opening the gate to diversion of state highway funds.
