Can't find the bottom
Editorial cartoon "Can't Find the Bottom" condemns spending of the Tennessee Valley Authority. A kneeling Uncle Sam holds "the yardstick to determine fair electric power rates" into a pool of coins and currency labeled "T.V.A. costs." that is overflowing a dam. In the background is the U.S. Capitol dome.
