In thin address Dr. Hetty stated that the rapidly growing chemical industry is choosing the South as its center because of the South's rich raw materials, and in this lies the key to Southern prosperity. He urged the agricultural group to spread the use of Southern products, and particularly chemical products, on Southern farms.

Telephone 21 "Back of Every Sign of Progress is the Assurance of Dependable Electric Service 3 O Parallels the Far=Flung Network of Central Station Power Facilities TWENTY-TWO years ago the first electric power transmission line was built in Texas ... by the Texas Power & Light Company, pioneering and hying the foundation for that type of electric service in this state. It was this pioneer effort and the extension of such facilities which followed that opened the door for Texas to realize a great benefit from the changing structure of American industry. As a result, forward-looking communities wielding the potent weapon of dependable and adequate power supply have won a wide variety of new weahh-producing industrial plants. Thousands of New Citizens ~npnte d~e industrial growth of Texas from 1921 to 1930, when the last Fede"d census was taken. The 3.~ plents o~ 1921 had ~town to 5.19~. the 1921 figure $~,707 industrial ~tge-euners had btqm multiplied to 822,860 by the end ot 1929 ! A great portion o~ these added e.mplo~es ~vem m~womera to their communities, swellina population, swelling local retail sales and ~lllna load wealth. o I Literally hundreds of industries, dating their founding since 1912, now dot the in- dustrial map of Texas. The close relation between their choice of location and the availability of dependable electric power is evident when the industrial map is com- pared with that showing the continually ex- panding facilities of central station powdr supplied through transmission lines. Almost point for point and mile for mile, industrial growth has paralleled the exten- sion of dependable power service. These twenty-two years have seen the development of Texas as a textile manufac- turing center; the movement for dairy prod- ucts manufactories come into being and flower into the thriving plants now active at many points; refineries; flour mills, day products plants, cotton gins, oil mills, gar- ment factories and many others built to add wealth and glory to industrial Texas. By far the greatest number of these new industries ... virtually all those o~ important size... have, most significantly, located where they may avail themselves of an adequate supply of dependable and economical electric power, assured by transmission lines. Always the Texas Power & Light Com- pany has looked toward the requirements of the future. Thus an adequate and depend- able power supply has been available, sup- plying industries, stores, homes and farm with the best type el service at reasonable rates.
