REMEMBER DAD ON SUNDAY, JUNE 20
If Oregon is to
have the telephone
service it needs
If the people of Oregon are to have the amount and kind
of telephone service they are demanding and should be
furnished, we must have enough price relief to meet
current wages and costs and to keep our credit sound.
Our price levels in Oregon have lagged far behind
general price levels. The increase in revenues granted last
January, the first increase in over a quarter of a century,
averaged only 9H per cent. We wish we could pay post
war prices for all that we buy and charge only slightly
more than prewar prices for what we have to sell but
this is impossible.
Our earnings in Oregon, including the rate revisions
granted last January, won't do the job. Current earnings
on the dollars invested in Oregon are less than half of
what are needed to do the job.
Between now and the end of next year we should
spend $26,500,000 to enlarge and improve the telephone
system to meet the needs of the people of Oregon. To
do this we must go to investors for money. Investors are
alike in one thing they put their dollars where they can
expect safety and a fair return.
To provide a fair return, we are filing new rate sched.
ules with the Public Utilities Commissioner of Oregon.
