And veterans like Dick aren't let

New telephone rates will go into effect with the next telephone bills,
beginning with those dated January 11. These new rates have been
approved by the Public Utilities Commissioner of Oregon following
extensive hearings. Increased costs reduced the current earnings of
this business in Oregon to a point far below even the minimum
generally conceded as necessary. Our rates, generally, have not
. been increased since 1921 in most Oregon cities and towns.
Our policy with respect to earnings and service will continue to
be: To render an ever improving telephone service at a cost as low
as is consistent with financial safety and fair treatment to employees.
