New Line CenstracHon.
During 1941 a total of 148 miles ol
high-roltage transmission lines was
completed. In North Carolina lines
were built from Selma to Goldsboro,
Goldsboro to Wilson, from the Cape
Fear generating plant to Erwin. In
South Carolina lines were built from
Hartsville to Chesterfield and from
Florence to Greeleyville Late In the
year another line was started (since
completed) from Goldsboro to La
Grange. North Carolina, to intercon
nect with the Tide Water Power Com
pany in order to furnish that company
with more power to be used at the
shipyards and military centers.
PAY ROLL AMOUNTED
In addition to substantial amounts
spent last year in each of the com
munities served for rent, taxes, divi
dends, and miscellaneous supplies,
the company's pay roll of $2,501,570
was distributed among approximate
ly 1.600 employees who live in these
communities where It was again dis
tributed through normal channels for
liviner expenses. At the time the An
nual Report was compiled, 176 em
ployees had reported for active duty

AIDS IN SPEEDING
The National War Production Program
brought about many new demands
for the Company's electric service
during 1941. The Company's policy
of providing power facilities in ad
vance for the growing requirements
of its customers enabled it not only
to supply increased demands from
its own customers but. in addition, to
supply a large amount of power to
war industries not located in its ter
ritory. Through Its transmission lines
and Interconnections, the Company
delivered during the year, from Its
own aenerating plants and from the
surplus venerating facilities of nSn
'borlna companies, In excess of 400.
000.000 kilowatt hours to w indus
tries and companies located outside
of the Company's territory and not
usually served by this Company. The
greater portion of this power went to
the system of the Tennessee Valley
Authority and to the Carolina Alum
inum Company at Badin. North Caro
lina. Some of it was sentto the
Georgia Power Company during the
drought last Fall.
In the Company's own territory are
located Fort Bragg, North Carolina,
the War Department's largest Indi
vidual Army post, and Army aviation
training centers at Florence and
Sumter. South Carolina. Another
technical training school for aviators
is being built near Goldsboro. The
Company also furnishes Tide Water
Power Company with a large portion
of Its power requirements for distri
bution to shipyards and a number of
military training centers. A large
number of the Company's industrial
customers are producing material in
the armament program.

$3,123,698 TAX BILL
The provision made by the Company
for all 1941 taxes amounted to $3,
123.698 which represented approxi
mately 50 per cent more than oper
ating pay rolls and 60 per cent great
er than total dividends paid. Apply
ing the figure a little differently it
amounted to SI . 958 per average em
ployee $26 oer average customer
served or $8558 for every day of
the year. Of the total amount. $2.
999,429 was charged directly to elec
tric and motor coach operations and
$124,260 was charged to construction
and other accounts.
The Company, like every patriotic
American citixen. is glad to contrib
ute Its share of increased taxes as
long as the safety of our country re
quires It. But huge tax collections
should not be squandered on non
war projects. Secretary of the Treas
ury Morgenthcru warned the nation of
this when he pointed out to the
House Ways and Means Committee
In March as a "pressing duty . . . the
need for severe economy in the oper
ations of Federal. State and local
governments." Continuing he said:
"The anti-lnflatlonary purposes of our
taxing and savings program will be
defeated if, at the same time. Federal,
State and local governments indulge
In unnecessary expenditures."
