She was dealt, a bridge hand of 13 hearts. . JONES doesn't look too enthusiastic about paying his friend Jack's way into the movies. Maybe that's because he always seems to be caught with the bill, and he figures it's about time Jack started paying his own way. Oh well, life's like that, Mr. Jones. Some pay for the gas, while others just go along for the ride. Ever since the government's electric power projects went into operation in the Tennessee River Valley they have been supported by the taxpayers of the country, although only a minority «jf those taxpayers receive any actual benefit from the government's power plants. The government power projects, you see, pay no taxes to trfe federal government, and that's one thing which accounts for their "cheap" electricity. On the other hand, The Connecticut Light and Power. Company, a business-managed company founded in the principles of free enterprise, in 1945 paid $3,217,000 in taxes to the federal government, while keeping its rates as low as possible. Just as you pay Jack's way into the movies, Mr. Jones, you, and the rest of us, are helping to pay the way for the politically-managed government projects. "They're with us!" THE CONNECTICUT LIGHT AND POWER COMPANY A business-managed, tax-paying company.
