The investment per telephons before the war was $230. So it is that high costs of operation and additions of huge quantities of new telephone plant installed at the higher postwar level. hav« combined to produce the low rate of earnings now being experienced in Arkansas. Earnings are at depression levels—less than 3 per cent on capital invested in Arkansas—much lower than those of industry in general rnlttULLO represent two thirds of all expenses. This year we will feel the full effects of the December wage agreement, which amounts to nearly a million dollars additional a year in Arkansas. EARNINGS should compare favorably with those of other businesses, so that investors—everyday people in all walks of life—will risk their savings in the telephone busin*>-- MAI tKIALo are still high, despite recent declines in some prices.
