Pictured above are new Navy recruits receiving electrical training at 009 of the modernly equipped Navy Trade Schools. The Navy offer$ training to young men in nearly 50 different trades and vocations).

Our DoilyBread 'Continued From Page One) the airy optimism was justified in thu least. There is no reason to believe that we were kidding ourselves when we believed we had the best Navy in the world. It is. But the Japanese navy is good, and nobody knows just how big it is, since they have been building in secret since 1936. In a conflict between the best Navy and even the second or third best, the best is not going to win without heavy losses. But it will win in the end. Nothing has happened to shake our faith that our Navy is just us good as we thought it was. Suppose it is shown that the great battleship., if'.der certain close-to- land-base conditions, is vulnerable to attack by torpedo plane? The Bismarck, the Prince of Wales, the Gulf of, Taranto, the Repulse, all suggest that this is true. Ail right. Is there anything wrong with our naval aviation? The hnnd/ul oJ Marim! flyers at Wake seem to be doinc nil right. And the Army flyers plastered the Japanese baUleships that came too close to Luzon. Suppose the day of the plane has arrived. Does any 1 ody doubt thai we can buiid and fly three pianos for Japan's one? Is there anything they can do to our battleships that we can't do to theirs? Japan has certain advantages. She has been constantly at war for 10 years. She has valuable experience, experience of the kind that can be had only in battle, which tho most careful training can nover provide. We shall have to get that experience, and we shall have to pay lor it. There are no exceptions lo this rule. Wt- must keep our eyes steadfastly ou the ultimate- victory in which we have utmost and unshakeable confidence. Reverses will come that is war. ft At »«**^ 'W •Wt*. *.»^,' f «**«•* f A* <<**** '«M> THUCK1W8 JOI :.i«(<H«S.Vtt*t>W LUCK MOTOR COMPANY EBII TRUCKS ..««t 1 s r- f, <* ' 1, WHY Wl ARE ASKING FOR NEW TELEPHONE RATES IN HOPE ***** I £*»•«**( ^•*'*-;i««t^, *2W ***JT*^«4* »{ ^?i*^S4***»* 54K ^Vp»-**# ^.'| r*<J ^B^.J *•» 'i.J^ ^(r-r ****t*«4 ff'*«« I't.JI.* (ESS ^.i^.---';!'^ M unj. j,^ »*«!*»•**•,* *$ ** ^«« **at Mai»» s*i,«jis.)*w» W* (of «U ttru<(i« that »« it « rut ion h»»» «nt«r«<i Uniortenalttr. the t)«p»rir»jcn< (,»t not i«fn rtt to Jgf»« with our iui4««liion t.'-a!

Telephone Operating Expenses Rising Rapidly Wt had no latrnlion of atking (or t»t» lacrtitti at thin tint*, hoping that a vray out of our revenue difficulties might bt found, but Wg art now Ir/t with no choice. For yean, the telephone company's rev- *nu«* in Arkansas have been to low that even In normal times, rale increases in many towns could havt been justified. Now, with all of our operating expenses rising rapidly, any reduction in present rcvenuet within the itate which might result from the inquiry insisted upon by the Department would seriously hamper the job the company has to do for Arkansas in these critical time*. Therefore, we were forced to reply to the Department's suggestion for lower toll rates by filing tariffs for certain increases in the exchange rates of 25 Arkansas cities: Arkadelphia, Batesville, Brinkley, Camden, Conway, Earle, El Dorado, Fayetteville, Forrest City, Hope, Hot Springs, Magnolia, Malvern, Marianna, McQehee, Newport, Osceola, Paragould, Pine Bluff, Rogers, Searcy, Springdale, Van Buren, Warren and Wynne. In 13 of these 25 cities, present rates were established more than 20 years ago, under conditions wholly different from those today. In only two of the 25 towns have basic rates been changed in the last ten years, and they Taxes Average $1 A Month Per Arkanws Telephone W» will alw>ut w.tts On of HOP!

Scv. eral instances of so-called "free service" between exchanges would b« eliminated. Increases in certain general schedules of private branch exchange switchboard and trunk rales arc proposed which will also achieve greater uniformity and simplicity of administration. Each of the 25 cities in which increases are sought has for years had the advantage of exchange rates so low that they do not contribute a fair share toward tho total revenues needed to produce a reasonable return in Arkansas. If the communication system needed in these perilous times is going to function effectively, if dependable service is tq be given to telephone ur.ers, if fair treatment is to be given to telephone enj- ploye^s and to those men and women whose savings have built the telephone system, then adequate revenues must be assured. We ask for the sympathetic understanding of these facts by tel«. phone users her« and throughout Arkansas. For years it has been the policy of the telephone company to inform its customers as fully as possible concerning telephone matters in which they are interested.
