Living the clean life will be possible only if America cleans up. Air, water and countryside. It's a big job--much of it to be done with electric muscle. We're hearing much about recycling these days. Old cans into new cans,glass into new glass, paper into tomorrow's newspaper. None of this can happen without electricity. Many more cleanup jobs must be done requiring massive amounts of electric muscle. The experts figure this country will need twice as much electricity by ]981. There's no time to waste. We can't produce this extra oomph with two miraculous gulps of spinach! It has to be planned and built for. We'll continue working to do this. But we need your understanding today to meet tomorrow's needs. "Clean Energy For Modern laving" life and death." said Mr. Adams.
