BLYTHEVILLE ARK. : .fiiv.;..^.^^ 1 ;.'.''; Let's cross these rivers before we come to 'em! iliviiR flcvctopuiPtit nnd flood control rank high on the list of America's post-war plans. Many of these projects call for clams which may also produce electric power. This involves issues that should be discussed nnd settled now — rivers to cross in advance. Many of us in the power business hnvc had n long experience with river-side plants, in the production of both steam-generated and hydroelectric power. In fairness to all taxpayers and in the interest of the many million users of electricity, we therefore outline our convictions and suggestions on river development and flood control. X When a dam is proposed, all of its purposes should be clearly defined in the legislation — flood control, navigation, irrigation or power. And just as clearly, the benefit to Hie people affected should justify the cost. <6 If power is produced at government-built dams, it should be sold to existing power systems, without special privilege or discrimination. This will save the expensive duplication of transmis- sion facilities, help to co-ordinate the entire power supply of each region, nnd assure its widest possible use at the lowest practical rates. O Any savings mnde possible by this plan should be passed along to the users of electricity, under regulation by State Commissions or other properly constituted regulatory bcdies. This will assure all the benefits of river development and hydro-power without the added expense of government going into business and competing with its own citizens. 4: Government in any business endangers all business. Government in business escapes many normal business obligations, enjoys free mail, pays no federal taxes and few, if any, other taxes, little or no interest. If government can sell electricity on this basis, it can sell shoes, groceries, automobiles, or anything else the same way. Government may properly regulate business in the public interest but should not operaia business. It should not play in the game for which it makes tlie rules. In other words, government should not try to be referee and quarterback at the same time! G. O.
