Look Out Neighbor

Olds, Leland
September 1953
New Republic;9/14/53, Vol. 129 Issue 7, p9
The article focuses on the new power policy of the U.S. Government. The statement, which announced U.S. President Dwight David Eisenhower's new power policy, is a striking example of the craftsmanship of the public-relations expert. From the early days of New England town meetings, responsible local government has been considered an American symbol. So the nation's waterpower is to be turned back to private power companies traveling under the homey alias of local interests. The new statement of policy suggests that the federal government may still undertake certain multipurpose projects with hydroelectric developments, which because of size or complexity, are beyond the means of local, private or public enterprise. President Eisenhower's new policy means wasted resources and higher electricity bills.
