This Company intends to participate acthcly in Studies of atonic electric power generation. However, it would be' premature'to sav [hat this development is jus! around the toiner. Much remains to be done before there can be much commercial progress in this area. Atomic power, as v.e now understand it. can produce electricity only by the production oi heat. The heat pent-rated by nuilear ijs.sjon must be transferred to a boiler for the generation of steam, which, in turn, will operate a conventional type of steam turbine, driving a generator for the produetion of elearieity. This ntw source of heat ener- py is extremely important, because, if this country is to continue expanding its electric consumption, we must face the eventual depletion of our store of conventional fuel, such as coal, cas, and oil. The eost oi building and operating an atomic po\\e-i plant, base-d on today's knowledge, is .^re.iter than that for a conventional plant. .\tM-! the industry is ^oin>; ahrad with the construction of several experimental plants u:<ir!£ different type reactors. \\hile the operating eosts of such experimental plants will be higher, it is hoped that the knowledge gained from such developments will eventually it-suit in greater economy. The Company and other of American's investor- <i*;)eei tlc-itm I'.sht add power conipanics are willing to take this risk, because they know the importance of ^uaianteeins the future of our countrj s power supply. This is \ital to the future of our nation. IOWA
