At an evening briefing or. Brice of Brien chief counsel for the National Coal association told the Tennessee Valley visitors they were a wasting your time trying to Roll Back recent Price rises for Coal bought by the Tennessee Valley authority. A if you want Coal you la pay for it a or. Of Brien said. A the Days of cheap Energy Are gone a they Are gone. A you can to get cheap fuel Oil any More. In the past Energy was the cheapest thing you could buy. Its not cheap any More. You re going to pay for it. Done to sue us. You re wasting your or. Of Brien sprinkled his comments liberally with profanity until he was asked by members of the group to desist. He dropped the profanity but continued to lash out at the Valley people in an emotional and loud voice. The group a called the emergency committee for the Valley a is in Washington to meet with Federal officials and seek ways to Cut the soaring Cost of Power. Because of recent Coal Price increases to a has been forced to raise its wholesale rates for electric Power by 31.8 percent. The average retail Price increase to Home Consumers has been 23 percent. The blame for the higher costs has been placed mainly on the concentration of Many Oil natural Gas and Coal reserves in the hands of a few Large companies. No doubt the people will pay for their Energy a and pay dearly for it a As Long As reserves Are in the hands of the monopoly but it is doubtful if they Are wasting their time in trying to break up the monopoly and obtain fuel and electric Power at reasonable rates. This is not the first time the Public interest has been belittled in profane terms by a representative of some monopoly group. Usually in the past however the arrogance that comes from entrenched economic Power has yielded to the pressure of Public opinion. No doubt the same will occur again. Spokesmen of the fuel monopoly May rant at the consumer for asking for a better Deal and attempt to dictate to the Public the terms under which it will be supplied with fuel. But in the end it May be the Public and the Consumers who will decide these matters. 60 us Hhd sir a a Hefti to Pinna a a a a River weather Decatur and Vicinity High temperature expected today 66 Low tonight 42 and temperatures for 24 preceding8 .
