BURLESON HE
RATES TO STB
SA1.KM. June 27. Telephone ex
change rates, toll charges and In
stallation fees now In effect will re
main in force for a period of at least
90 days after the telephones are r
tumed to private ownership, unle-s
changed by the stute regulatory bod
ies, according to the interpretation
placed upon the bills pending in the
house and Senate at Washington fo
the return of the wires by the state
public service commission.
The Senate bill provides for the
return of the wires on the day it is
signed by the president, with a con
tinuance of existing rates for u pe
iod of 90 days thereafter. The house
I bill provides for the return of the
; wires six months from midnight of
the last day of the month in which
the bill is passed, with a continuance
of existing charges for a period of
six months. The provisions for a con
tinuation of the wartime charges are
made in order to give the telephone
companies an opportunity to go be
fore the state regulatory bodies in an
effort to secure a confirmation In the
Burleson rates.
Oregon will bo but slightly affect
ed by tho measure, It was said by
members of the Oregon commission
here, Inasmuch as the only Burleson
mado rates in effect In this state are
the installation rates and certain toll
charges which tho companies contend
are lower than tho pre-war rates.
Unless formal action is taken to
nullity these chnrges they would re
main In effect until the end ot the
period specified In tho bill as finally
passed by congress, when the charges
would rovert to those In effect befortj
June 6, when tho wires were taken
over by the government, unless in
tho meantime tho telephone compan
ies shall come before the public serv
ice commission and secure a confir
mation ot the Burleson-made rates.
