GALLS IT OBLIGATION
foung Says Electrical Industry
Vi'.ist Solve Rural Problem as
Matter of Duty
Farm electrification is not a bu also
r* ojh nin;: ?. much as it is a social
>hlicition. In the opinion of Owen D.
Young. n farm owner and with a
farm boyhood behind him. now chairmen
of the board of directors of the
Seneral Fh'Ctrie Company. The obligation.
in Mr. Young's opinion, rests
with the electrical industry.
In a:; In' -view which Mr. Young
ins just granted to tlio New York
Times, he says: "It is the electrical
industry's Job to make its contribution
o . deouaoy and economy in farm production
O'.herwls . the electrical in5*:?try
w'll he found wanting. And it
accept a pro * m of this magniudv

"The qi est ion' i-- how can a hns1nass
of this s;:-e and importance be
ieTf-iop d in such n way tiiat the eleetrioal
industry can r?>ll its service for
what ti c- purohnsi rs eon nfford to
ay? An;.'?;dy can produce poods at
3uch a pri- tiiat no one can afford to
buy them. Business demands, that
the p*i --lial! be within- reach of the
potential customer, and that there
shall he a fair return to the producer.
A Jot to Be Worked Out
"It is incumbent upon the manufacturing
branch of the electrical indus

can lighten f -m labors and Increase
farm p"nfi;s. It will checfc
the exodus of the better type of citizens
from the farm. It will make the
farmhouse the most delightful hums
we have in this country."
Mr Young add- d that it was hardly
to he expected that the Isolated elec
trie light and power company, havipj
no inter-connection of -power line#
with any other utility company, could
go out. and serve the farmer .at a d'.s
tinct loss. But the opportunity came,
he pointed out. when fifteen or twenty
such isolated utilities were tied together
Into a single system with one
large power plant, and a system, of
distribution linos, thereby accomplishing
economies which each of the
tingle isolated plantJ could not work
