Einmelt S. Kills- brew, designing engineer .of the unique county-owned development, tokl (he United Press in a general discussion' of the project. "We arc grossing $100.000 ammnl income on our outlay of $1,250,000. sulllclL-nt to pay operating expenses, on bonds, and leliic a part of the principal."

He wants to county tax-free under certain conditions, lo enjoy what Killbrew asserts is "the cheapest power rales In the United Sloes." the campaign also includes an effort to induce greater local use of electiicity, es- l>ecially for healing purposes. "Our present rate of operation is only one tenth of the capacity of our development," Killbre-.v said, "so that we have a brorid basis on which lo build in future. Ulitmale- ly, we believe, we can make an entire elimination of taxation, nay on* the ccst of the plain by its own earnings, and run our county business from Ihe normal income of this undertaking—the only county- owned power plant in America."
