P. M. Lincoln: I do not think in our industry there is anything on which the members of the fraternity have more divergent opinions than they have on this question of power rate. It is somewhat difficult in the first place to obtain a proper conception of the items to include, to arrive at a proper power rate. Possibly the best way to get at it would be to consider the things which go to make up the ideal power rate. In starting out on this task it is very possible, in fact it is almost certain, that what may be an ideal power rate in my opinion may not be an ideal power rate in the opinion of some one else.
