Busy little electric cutters like this are hum
ming at top speed in thousands of factories,
slicing out uniforms -tents tarpaulins all
kinds of cloth goods for the army and navy and
the people who do the everyday work at home.
The electricity they use isn't a drop in the
bucket. It costs practically nothing a day.
But let that electricity fail in ANY defense
, ELECTRICITY ANYWHERE... anytime
. . . any amount of it I
America has 4y2 times as much electricity as it had in the
World War. Three times as much as the Axis nations combined.
But what was needed to make the nation's supply of power
completely available, completely efficient, was interconnection.
It took brilliant engineering and billions of dollars to trans
form the skeleton power map of 1918 to the full-grown inter
connected power systems you see on the map of 1940.
Now these transmission lines completely serve every major
industrial area of America with a supply of power from many
sources, safe from interruption. They increased efficiency, made
it possible to utilize a bigger percentage of each plant's output,
and reduced costs and rates.
That is AMERICAN ENTERPRISE at work!
What we want you to know, Mr. Taxpayer, is that this nation
wide American system of power plants, power lines and power
SERVICE is fulfilling and can fulfill every demand that can
be laid on it by the needs of national defense and do it better
than any other system in the world.
And YOU don't have to dig down in your pocketbook for
a single extra tax dollar, or a million or a hundred million
extra tax dollars, to pay out for something you already have !
plant, big or little and all work stops. Let the
service grow inefficient, and defense production
slows up, costs more.
Listen, Mr. Taxpayer YOU pay the national
defense bills. You want to keep the best electric
service in the world at the lowest cost in the
world the service that private enterprise in
vented, created and perfected for Americans!

Note the tremendoui increase In high-voltage trans.
mission lines since the last war. Power plant capacity
on these interconnected systems has increased 4',
times. Today there is plenty of power everywhere!
