arc successful here we can march on step by step in a like development of other great natural territorial units within our borders TEXT OF MESSAGE of The text follows the congress The continued idleness great national investment in the Tennessee valley leads me to ask congress for legislation necessary to enlist this project in the service of the people It is clear that the Muscle bhoals development is but a small part of the potential public useful ness of the entire Tennessee river Such use if envisioned iniiti entirely transcends mere velopment control soil erosion afforestation elimination from agricultural use of marginal lands and distribution and diversification of industry Leads to Planning short this power development Missing Des Moines Banker Is Arrested DES MOINES

Lake Iowa and the future lives and welfare of millions It touches and gives life to all lorms of human concerns I therefore suggest to the con gress legislation to create a Ten nessee valley authortya corpora tion clothed with the power of gov ernment but possessed of the flexi bility and intiUative of a private enterprise It should be charged with the broadest duty of planning for the proper use conservation and devel opment of the natural resources of the Tennessee river drainage basis and fta adjoining territory for the general social and economic fare of the nation Carry Needed rower This authority should also be clothed with the necessary power to carry these plans into efcct Its duty should be the rehabilitation of the Muscle Shoals development and the coordination of it with the wider plan Many hard lessons havo taught us the human waste that results from lack of planning Here and there a few wise cities and coun ties have looked ahead and planned But our nation has just
