TVA Newsreel: "Day and night, in peace and in war, the dams work for the people. Power for the factories. Power for new industries. Power to run a million machines. Aircraft, tractors, textiles. Engines, shoes, fertilizer aluminum. Cheap and abundant power to light the cities and villages. Power to the farms, to be converted to a hundred homely uses. Power working tirelessly, endlessly. Raising standards. Reducing drudgery. Power in the hands of the people."
