Today's Marvelous Steam Powered Electric Power Plants produce.,. TOOK (.82 POUNDS TO MAKE A KILOV/AU HOUR IN (927" enough electricity to keep this 100 watt lamp burning for ten hours During 1955 the utility industry country-wide has averaged less than a pound of coal per kilowatt-hour of electricity. No wonder Reddy's proud! Because, in 1927, it took nearly two pounds of coal to do the same job. That's what technical "know-how" lias achieved. And it proves that coal is still our primary source for electric power and that we can depend on modern science to give us "plenty of power." HAVE SEEN what modern science is doing to bring MORE AND MOKE electric power to our homes, farms and businesses — and at the same time use Ltss AND Ltss of the coal vital to its production. And, as science accomplishes this tremendous task, it achieves another great piece of work — that of delivering that power at a BARGAIN rate. What is *lovr Cost" Power? If you will look at the "Cost of Living Index" you will sec that it has steadily gone up. But there's one commodity that has gone down. That's the average kilowatt hours cost of household electricity. It's gone down while other prices have zoomed. That makes the cost of electricity about the only bright spot in the household budget! Science or Politics-Which? Politicians have talked a lot about lower prices. But meantime the scientists have gone quietly ahead — experimenting, testing, working things out. They've drastically cut down the quantity need of fuel — coal • — the primary source of power. And so it is possible for your power companies to do a better job for less cost — boosting production, expanding and spreading costs ; — in the typical American way, Poce of Progress Quickens Without using one penny of tax money, the electric light and power companies of Iowa are building plants, facilities and equipment to keep ahead of our constantly increasing demand for more electric power at the lowest possible price. It is our aim to give you moderately-priced, dependable power, ba^ed on. scientific progress and good management — » and always showing a friendly interest in you? needs.
