The electric power demand is equal to the average city o£ 17,500 population. The city owns its own power facilities. Tho rales ore as low for industrial uses as any ;n the United States. "What is the problem now? First, the undivided surplus tax is working a great hardship. Second, inadequate credit | arrangements,, because ot the stringent banking regulations, new prevail while excess cash is rarried in banks -which cannot work lor productive enterprise." " r,~'. · Mr. Norris hero" interrupted his narrative to point out that "it is only fair and fitting to state that the one reason the aforementioned bank was able to become solvent was due to the fact that one large corporation (an Eastern oil company) continued to pay dividends out of surplus which had been accumulating over a period of years." He adds: "As a direct result of this fortunate circumstance, five small industries were aided in. continuing iheir payrolls. Indirectly the result was far- reaching because the merchants were benefltted by the payrolls thus kept intact, to say nothing of the depositors' money which was saved. Two of the industries in the city wore likewise aided through relatives ot the management who were able to pledge securities of other large corporations for loans with the Federal Reserve Bank' and a large Chicago Bank." Mr. NorrU told the President that the moral of /this talc was the need for small loans to industries and that what was good fortune in this instance was by no means matched by such good luck elsewhere because the help from the dividends of a large corporation through a. single family interest was probably not available elsewhere. He believes therefore in, small leans to Industry along the lines of the insurance plan in the Housing Law.- His conclui- ions arc: "Thei;c Is unlimited talent in our small industries to produce new products. Proper capital facilities for small industry are not open from private sources today. Our college students must be absorbed in small industry as well as large industry. Small) industry is the life-blood of hundieds of communities in the. Unite! States. Cash is available in bank; through insured loans for industry; the depositors can be safeguarded and the Government not add to its indebtedness. The Housing program' would be stimulated and present FHA loans on homes made more secure; and the beneficial results to all industry would be manifold." The Administration is working en a plan for small loans to small business and Congress will soon be studying this way of increasing the national income and reducing the expense of relief through creating jobs.
