various legislative proposals to
help lower transportation costs for

"One of the alternatives to be
presented is the possibility of se
ceding from Oregon and joining

the invitation, said that "I am
not well advised concerning the
problem but thought I should ad
vise you that here in Idaho we
are always inviting people to
come up and see us.
"I see no reason why we should
vary our invitation just because
you want to bring your own real
estate," Smylie said.
"If secede you must, then join
us quickly while we still have

SALEM (UPI) Bell telephone
users in Oregon will benefit by a
$500,000 cut in intrastate toll
rates, Gov. Mark Hatfield said
Intrastate means calls within
the state.
Hatfield said he has asked Jo
nel C. HiU, public utility com
missioner, to take immediate
steps to effect a decrease in such
long distance rates.
The reduction comes as a re
sult of a national $46 million year
ly agreement between the Bell
System, and the National Asso
ciation of Railroad and Public
Utility Commissioners. Bell is
shifting that amount in revenue
requirements from its intrastate
to interstate operations.
"We have been concerned with
and have consistently wDiked for
a solution to the problem of intra
state toll disparity it is grati
fying to see that at last part of
the disparity will be removed,"
Hatfield said.
