Future Issues of Copco
Preferred Stock Will
be Offered on a Six
Dollar Dividend Basis.
The California Oregon Power Company announces with gratification that as a result of
Increased earnings and assets and improved business conditions it is no longer necessary
to offer a return of seven per cent in order to obtain capital through the Sale of its
preferred stock.
A new issue of preferred" stock now offered by the Company in the near future will carry
dividend rate of six dollars per share per year at a price to yield approximately 6)i c .
It is available on monthly payments.
Three groups of people are interested in this announcement:
The Holders of
the 7
Preferred Stock
already issued.
To this group our. announcement means that the
Company's Preferred Stock has materially ad
vanced in value and favor, and that it will now
be possible to reduce the expense of capital em
ployed in additions and improvements. Dividends
on the 1 Preferred Stock already issued are of
course not affected by the reduction of the divi
dend rate of future issues.
Although the net yield of approximately b is
lower than that obtained by earlier investor! in
the If Preferred Stock, both classes of stock
have equal priority as to assets and earnings,
and the reduction of dividend is a true indication
of increased value and security.
The Company's obligation to its customers and
the public requires that service shall be rendered
at rates which are just sufficiently clear of the
cost to leave a fair return for the money invested
in the Compuny. They are entitled equally with
the stockholders to information about the Com
pany's progress, and to the opportunities for in
vestment which it affords.

"'Cast thy bread upon the wa

many days'. This is a phrase from
the book of Kcclesiastes. Men must
learn to give with a generous ges
ture. Dragging money out of an
old coin purse with weasel strings
like bausers is a curse In thought
bd deed. Many persons die and
leave not a cent to charity, to pub
lic enterprise, to the community
which made their fortunes for
them. That is one of the saddest
spectacles In the world and makes
some funerals almost unbearable.
The tears shed over this fact
would really be a monument to the
departed. The reader probably re

I will with tears enough to turn a

to want to live in a community
without finding cne or more of the
beneficiaries of the community
