One is tKat a return of seven or eight per cent is Kunrnnlccd. This is not true. Earnings of electric light and power companies are limited, not guaranteed, by law. Companies are permitted to earn a reasonable return if they can. Normally a pmver company adds substantially to its investment each year in order to take care of increased demands for service. If it cannot increase its earnings it does not earn a return on this investment. It is not accidental that so many have found it possible to show a good record of earnings. Utility management never was more active after additional business than now. Approximately $600,000,000 \vns s]«nt by electric light and pdwev companies during 1931 for new construction, extensions and improvements, giving direct employment to thousands of workers and a ; aisting other industries to "keep going". More people have money invested in the electrical industry man in any other group. The safety of their investments and stability of the industry are of concern not only to them, as investors, but to the country as a whole. ARKANSAS-MISSOURI POWER CO.
