King of Iowa
fies at Hearing
Says Company Proposed to Rtain Gas
Distribution Plants in the
State and Officers.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 22 (UP)
Robert King, president and general
manager of the Iowa-Nebraska Light
and Power company testified today
before the federal power commission
that only a small proportion of the
company's business is interstate and
subject to commission Jurisdiction.
He was the first witness at a hear
ing on the company's application for
permission to sell its eleetrlcal facil
ities in Nebraska to the Central Ne
braska . Public Power and Irrigation
district and the Loup River Public
Power district, Nebraska's so-called
King testified that the company
proposed to retain its gas business
In Nebraska and to retain a con
tract with the Nebraska Power com
pany for energy needed In Iowa.
He said the village of Summer
field, Kansas would be served by the
Central Nebraska Public Power and
Irrigation district. Employees of the
company in Nebraska, including of
ficers, will be retained during the
adjustment to insure service, he said.
King testified that the original
cost of all Iowa- Nebraska appro
priations was f33.500.000 of which
Nebraska holdings comprised $20,-500,000-
These figures did not include ma
terials and supplies valued at $200,
000, which would go to the power
district without charge, he said.
The total outstanding indebted
ness of the Iowa-Nebraska firm was
comprised of $18,500,000 in bonds
and $3,500,000 in demand notes to
the Continental Gas and Electric com
pany, parent company of the Iowa
Nebraska company. The final price
to be paid by the power districts still
is undisclosed. It will be based on
an independent audit of Iowa-Nebraska
earnings for the fiscal years
1936 through 1938 King testified.
King said that the ' amount cover
ed by-the audit was more than fair
because the firm made reductions
affecting earnings during the audit
period. '. ' ' ''
TCommissioher John W. Scott has
disclosed 'that Giiy C; Meyers, an 'em
ployee of the district, negotiated' the
sale. Scott asked whether Meyers
had been paid any sum by the Iowa
Nebraska firm and King replied in
the negative. '
