HIS ATTITUDE ON THE

The Reporter is in receipt o:
the following letter from Con
gressman Frank Hancock:
"Washington, D. C., March 6.
"The Danbury Reporter,
"Danbury, North Carolina.
"Quite naturally, my office ia
being flooded with letters from'
my friends in the District re-j
questing that I oppose the pass
age of the Rayburn-Wheeler
Utility Bill, which is designed to
protect investors and consumer*
against the abuses which have
grown up under these organiza

that a large majority of those
who are writing me own stock
in an operating company, but
have been misled into believing
that their stock was in a hold

"Every interest is entitled ta
representation under a Demo
cratic form of Government, but
we must strive ever to bring
about through national legislation
the greatest good for the great

facing the utility problem is to
find out what is nn hone&t pric3
for electricity and then see that
the people are properly protected
in such ratos. Contrary to some
propaganda, there is no disposi

ministration to destroy true pro
perty values or to take from any
one a penny of income from a
legitimately valued investment. I
believe that you will agree with
me that the formation of many
holding companies for the pur
pose of frenzied financing and
concealment of true cost of
operation of the primary com
pany has been against the pub
lic interest and that they shoul 1
either be outlawed or controlled
by strict Federal regulation and

careful analysis of this Bill you
will agree with me that the in
