One of a series of twelve
advertisements about the men who manage PP&L
business in Oregon and Washington
GLENN L. COREY, District Manager at The Dalles since 1925, points out a
section of the transmission network linking together 150 generating plants
now cooperating in the Northwest Power Pool. Glenn is a graduate of Oregon
State and started in with PP&L right after World War I, in which he served
as 2nd Lieutenant with the 57th Field Artillery. He learned the husiness from
the ground up meter reader, clerk, operator at the old Hood River power
plant ; District Manager at Seaside, Toppenish, The Dalles. The Corey family
includes 3 daughters, and 2 sons-in-law, both in the armed forces.
Ever stop to think that your electric service has been
on a 24-hour shift for years and years? That's just one
of the things our District Managers have to think about.
It's one of the reasons why the electric business
all over America long ago outgrew the stage where
one community or one district, could adequately handle
its own power needs. ,
Today, for example, the line that runs to your home
is an integral part of a carefully planned network of
feeder lines, transmission lines, and the thousands of
local circuits that make up the PP&L system.
Because we have this system with its veteran or
ganization of trained people behind your service,
you seldom know when emergencies arise. But, there's

Head of deep-water navigation on the Columbia River, The
Dalles is at the gateway of the rich Inland Empire. It is a
busy shipping and processing point for an ever-increasing
amount of wheat, fruit, lumber, cattle, and other products
all making for healthy year-round business activity. In the
same way, the much more widely diversified activities of all
12 PP&L operating districts make for a rugged, depend
able electric system. Because PP&L serves a complete
cross-section of the great Columbia Basin, users nil over the
system have their electric service protected against local
adversities. Through the years they have fotind the benefits
of tin's business-managed system operation consistently
reflected in lower and lower rates.
