Dear Friend
I t ' s not often th a t the president o f a company gets to ta lk to
customers about th e ir need fo r q u a lity service and the challenges
o f providing th a t service . I appreciate th is o p p o rtu n ity.
At General Telephone Company o f the Northwest, our goal is to
provide the fin e s t communications service possible to each and every
one o f you. We have come a long way in achieving th is goal. But
there is always more to be done.
The success of th is e f f o r t depends on the c a lib e r o f the employees
in your area, working to provide the s e rv ic e — the in s t a lle r who con­
nects your telephone, the operator who processes your telephone c a ll,
the engineer who works on b u ild in g s or equipment to meet new service
demands. . . ju s t the kind o f people featured in th is newspaper supple­
Don't h e s ita te to c a ll on D is t r ic t Manager Lyle Cagley or any of
our employees i f you have problems or suggestions about your telephone
service . The d i s t r ic t manager, the in s t a lle r , the opera tor, the bu si­
ness o ffic e re p re senta tive, in fa c t, each and every employee works to
serve you. And how they serve you determines how the Company serves
I am con fiden t th a t the General Telephone employees in the Forest
Grove D is t r ic t are top c a lib e r people, dedicated to providing you w ith
the best in communications.
A ccordingly, I support them and w i l l continue to support them with
the manpower and f a c i l i t i e s to insure th a t they can give you the best
in to ta l communications.

Good things are happening in the Forest Grove District. Good
things for our economy, health care, recreation and communications. We
are proud that General Telephone Company is playing a part.
This is the general theme we have attempted to present in this
newspaper supplement. Showing you the projects now underway and
those planned to insure you good communications and to show you
some of the dedicated people working daily toward that goal.
Since the area is not standing still, local companies like General
Telephone, providing services, cannot stand still either.
We have long range plans which call for an investment of
$4,678,000 in the next five years for a New Service Center Building in
Cornelius, Building and Central Dial Offices in Vernonia and Banks,
DDD Equipment at McMinnville, and various major cable additions.
In the past year alone telephones in the district have grown at
about 4% percent. We expect this growth rate to continue.
By the end of 1972 we plan to have 30 percent of our cabling
The 161 employes in the Forest Grove District know that this
kind of effort is the only way to provide you with the service you need.
We plan to continue.
