MORE HOME-TOWN SERVICE FOR WEST'S HOME TOWNS
We're putting many millions more into telephone facilities this year
1. All across the West, in the country and in the
cities, telephone people are still hard at it expanding
and improving the telephone system. For our popu
lation continues to grow. The demand for new tele- -phone
service goes right on ... in spite of our having
doubled the number of telephones in use in the
past ten years. And doubling the amount of money
invested in the telephone business in just five years.
3. It's taken a tremendous investment to build to
serve the million and a half new telephones we've
added since 1943. And, building as we have in the
face of inflated costs, the equipment to serve a new
telephone has averaged about $400. Before 1940, the
average was about $250. Yet rates are up far less than
our costs of providing service... on the average less
than half as much as the cost of living. Your telephone
is one of your budget's best friends.
"TO TeloyhctaB'i T5th Anlvinuy of gorvtoe to tb Nation"
2. New facilities, installed in just the past five years
have increased our plant $660,000,000, the largest
expansion program ever executed by any public utility
operating company. Again in 1951, we'll put many
millions of investors' money into the West. Much of
the material we will use will be purchased in the
W est's towns and cities. Certainly most of them will
benefit from the program's jobs and payrolls.
