GRANGERS SHAPE THE PATTERN
off OREGON'S DEVELOPMENT
Would you rather have the goose that laid
the golden eggs or Oregon'! chickens and turkeys?
Grangers would take Oregon poultry any day.
The U.S. Bureau of Agricultural Economics estimate!
the annual value of the state' poultry and poultry pro
ducts alone at $34,000,000. That is farm wealth which
poultry raisers fed into Oregon business and some of it
got to you. It bears out the old Grange story that every
one gains from solid, prosperous agriculture.
Thirty thousand of the state's up-and-coming farmers
are Grangers. They are directed by these common motives
better living and working conditions; a very real
desire to continue shaping the pattern of Oregon's
development for the good of all.

TUie responsibility of furnishing telephone service in
communities and territory in which ws operate in
Oregon carries with it the obligation to see to it that
the service shall be adequate and dependable. Now,
in order to fulfill our obligation properly, we have
found it necessary to apply for Increased rates In Ore
gon. We would like to tell you why they are needed.
Present Local Rates Wert Set Many Yesrs Ag
Charges now being made by this company for local
telephone service in Oregon are based an rates that
were established many years ago ... in most cues ts
far back as 1921. Today these rates are Inadequate.
Our Costs Have Soared Since 1940
The cost of furnishing telephone service has risen
greatly since pre-war years. Total wage expense in
1946, which represents two-thirds of our operating ex
penses, more than tripled that of 1940, due to higher
wages and more employees.
Our business in Oregon has grown and revenues
have more than doubled in this period, but costs have
climbed even faster. Costs of buildings, equipment
and supplies have gone up tremendously.
We Are Not Seeking Large Profits
In asking our customers to pay more for service we
are not seeking large profits. Our policy with respect
to earnings and service will continue to be: "To fur
nish an ever-improving telephone service at a cost as
low as is consistent with financial safety."
Present Intrastate Earnings Are Low
Our earnings on intrastate plant investment, which
were never high, have dropped rapidly the last half
of 15 being 45 below 1945. There la every indi
cation that without rate relief the earnings would be
even lower in 1947 than in the last half of 1946.
m. m 11
There Is Big Job Ahead
To meet unprecedented demands for service and to
keep pace with Oregon's growth, we are engaged in
the largest expansion and Improvement program in
our history a program which will cost $25,000,000
in this sut during 1947 aloe.
'Adequate Earnings Are Essential
We have waited ae long as we could to ask for
higher rates but mors money i essential now. Mil
lions of dollars of the savings of thrifty Americana
must be invested to finance the necessary increases in
plant and equipment Thrifty Americans, being good
business men and women, will invest these millions,
if, and only if, there is reasonable assurance of a fair
return. The Increase in total revenue we ask is only
what is required to maintain sound credit position
and we feel it Is moderate and in the public interest.
We would fail in our responsibility if we allowed
further time to elapse before applying for rate relief.
