Dear Stub... Signed Dwight

Straight, Michael
December 1954
New Republic;12/27/54, Vol. 131 Issue 26, p13
This article focuses on the letter written by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The core of the letter is the very important truth which the President would have the nation believe, the partisans of TVA ignore. The federal government very plainly assumed the responsibility for the valley's power supply when it amended the TVA Act in 1939. When Mr. Eisenhower took office he swore to uphold that law, as he had done in the course of the 1952 campaign. Even if the government's ultimate purpose is to amend the law and thus to transfer responsibility, its duty is to approach TVA in the spirit, of an investor guarding his property rather than as a conqueror disposing of enemy loot.
