My silent partner and I both
work for immmhmm
Sure, this is National Defense! The regulars, the trainees
and all the rest of us have to eat, don't we? Thousands
of food canning plants like ours and our silent partner,
Electricity are doing a real defense job nowadays!'
...Today no industry has to worry about its
power supply, no matter where it is...
National Defense is a many-thousand-sided problem. No
body knows it better than the plants that are busy with rush
defense orders in Pennsylvania, Michigan, California, the
Great Northwest or anywhere else.
But no manufacturer, anywhere in the nation, needs to worry
today about his power service. The vast network of high
voltage power transmission lines that you see on the map is si
defense system in itself.
America's power systems are ready to supply power wherever
it is needed, whenever it is needed, and however much i;
needed as quickly and efficiently as you get electric servic
in your own home.
And state lines, county boundaries, city limits are no barriers,
to the efficient interconnection of America's power systems,
In this national emergency practical men are realizing what
these great, efficient utility systems the so-called "holding"
companies have actually accomplished in integrating the
American power defenses since the last war.
They realize, too, that these systems are supplying the nation
with adequate power, without the need of diverting a single
defense-dollar or tax-dollar of yours away from the red job
of building the armaments that we lack.
Interconnected transmission systems make power
available everywhere for today's defense needs.
