have enough price relief to meet
current wages and costs and to
keep our credit sound.
Our present intrastate earnings
in Oregon, which include the rate
revisions granted last January,
are rapidly approaching tha van
"Between now and the end of
next year the company should
spend $26,500,000 to enlarge and
Improve the telephone system in
Oregon. To do this we must go
to investors for money. Investors
are alike in one thing they put
their dollars where they can ex
pect safety and a fair return."
In general, the filing by the
company would increase one
party residence service $1.00 per
month; two-party residence, 75c
per month and four-party resi
dence and suburban service, 50c
per month. No change is propos
ed in present farmer line rates.
Business rates would be increas
