Telephone Company's Annual Report
GOV. MEIER called on the legislature for a resolution to
hare a national investigation of the American Tele
phone and Telegraph company, and the legislature respond
ed with a resolution whose language charges guilt before
the inquiry. We should like to see some such thorough-going
investigation of the entire structure of the telephone com
pany, its manufacturing affiliate, and its relation to sub
sidiaries. Our own impression is that the chief revelation
would be what was not found rather than what was found.
Which simply means, that the telephone company will prob
ably be found to be operating as well in the public interest
as any concern of the kind whether publicly or privately
The annual report of the American Telephone & Tele
graph company shows earnings considerably less than prior
years, and actually amounting to $5.96 a share. The dividend
of $9 a share was continued, the difference being made up
out of surplus. The number of telephones in use is 12 per
cent below the maximum in 1930, and toll and long-distance
conversations were 17 less. Depreciation is allowed for at
an average rate of 4.5 which would appear to be a very
conservative figure. Net earnings are reported to be at the ot malaria.
rate of 3.9. on the cost of plant and other assets.
Hie company denies there is any "watered stock" in its
capital structure. Instead it has received $268,000,000 or $14
a share in excess of the par value of $100 a share. The re
port says :
"During the boom period culminating in 1929, in spite of
considerable pressure growing out of the speculative fever, the
company paid no 'melons' to its stockholders, declared no extra
or stock dividends, and did not split up its stock. On the con
trary it made three substantial reductions in long-distance rates
and at the same time greatly extended the scope, increased the
speed, and improved the quality of both local and long-distance

Benefited by Fever
Within recent years it baa beea
discovered that persons afflicted with
certain chronic nervous disorders are
markedly benefited by high fever,
artificially produced. Ia many In
stitutions patients suffering from
-paresis", or softening of tbe brats,
have beea benefited by this treat
ment. Tbe desired aad temporary
fever Is produced by Inoculations
wit malaria. Prior te the trees,
ment the sufferer may have beea as
disabled as te be unable te walk.
After tbe malarial treatment, many
are able to resume their former oe
eupattonn Of course tbe treatment Is attended
with considerable risk. It can only
be undertaken at institutions which
specialise hi this work. Tbe afflicted
mdrrldual Is Inoculated wttk blood
from a person Hi of malaria. The
parasite that causes that disease is
transferred Into the blood ef tbe suf
ferer. The Inoculated person runs a
high fever for several days.
The patisnt develops chills, fever
and sweats. Malaria is actually pro
duced. But. as I have said, these pa
tients reaulre expert attention. They
are Isolated and confined ta Quarters
where strict quarantine Is enforced.
This prevents the danger of tbe
Selected Cases Treated
This treatment, known medically
as "pyrexia therapy", or treatment
by fever, exerts a definite beneficial
action on the nervous system of tbe
patient In some cases it Is neces
sary to repeat the Inoculations two or
three times. At times the results
are disappointing. But since there
Is no other known method of treat
ment for these unfortunate sufferers,
every effort should be made to beta

What the public wants to know is, when do telephone of the heart kidnsys. liver and other
exchange rates come down? Taking the facts as they appear
in the report the chance for a reduction in the immediate
future is slim. Unless there is a "nigger in the woodpile"
even an order for reduced rates would not stand in court.
The company has expended vast sums for improving the
mechanics of telephony, and now has trouble earning a re
turn on the investment. Perhaps the company made a mis
take. Perhaps it should have devoted more of its research to
ward lowering costs and reducing rates. Certainly in the
immediate future it would be wise in applying its energies
more in that direction, if only to promote better relations
with its consumers.
The A. T. & T. is the largest corporation in the United
States with total assets of over three billion dollars. It has
the largest number of stockholders 700,000 now; and 60
of them own not to exceed 10 shares apiece. The statement
has previously been made that no one owns more than one
per cent of the capital stock. This surely gives a democracy
of ownership ; and the diffusion of stockholdings among the
people is undoubtedly a consideration prompting the direct
ors to maintain dividends.
In spite of all the public criticism which the uninformed
public heaps upon the telephone company for its "war-time
rates", a subject which is now undergoing investigation in
Illinois, the Bell system is doing a big job in a successful
manner, and the management appears to be discharging its
three-way responsibility to patrons, employes and snarenoid

Producing aa artificial fever as s

known for many years. There stm
remain many problems, of course.
When they are solved, persons af
flicted with paresis will no longer be
doomed to the usual fate.
