"Why the boy is on the road to complete prostration. He even gets more letters than I do, and I receive a fc\v. Meanwhile, discounting rumors that the Dodgers intend to ship Robinson out 'for further experience, it was revealed that the club was helping him to find an apartment in Brooklyn.

Is $26 to $34 a week a good wage for an operator? Particularly if her earnings are increased by evening and Sunday work to a total of from $30.10 to $38.90 a week? Is $26 to $37 a week a good wage for a stenographer? Is $28 to $58 a week a good wage for a central office repairman? With added pay for evening or premium time worked! The Company makes regular wage surveys to be sure that wages like these compare favorably with earnings for similar skills and training here. Union leaders say these wages are too low. Obviously the company and the union both can't be right. The company, therefore, has repeatedly said, "Let's decide which is right without making the public suffer because of our disagreement. Let's ask the governors of the five states we serve to appoint a panel of impartial citizens, familiar with local conditions. Then let them settle all questions pertaining to wages." Union leaders still refuse this offer. They still insist on national arbitration. They still demand that umpires judge the "game" from outside the "ball park." The company urges union officials to reconsider our offer of arbitration here at home. It is the fair way to settle the telephone wage issue equitably. The -company believes that people in SOUTHWESTERN BEU SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES START AT $121.80 A MONTH Here, an intelligent young woman with no previous experience but with an aptitude for discussing business matters-with the public can start work in the telephone company's business office as a service representative at §28 a week, or $121.80 per month. '. She doesn't need to know shorthand or typing. No special skills or specialized "knowledge is required. She learns the job as she works. She works 40 hours a week in pleasant surroundings with congenial people. Every service representative gets raises in pay at the end of the first three months, at the end of six months, at the end of the firat year, and annual raises for the next seven years. Her top rate, if she remains a service representative, is $38 a week or $165.30 a month, and she always has a chance to progress to an even better paying job. Union leaders are demanding that the starting rate {or the beginning service representative be increased f!8 to » total of $46 a week or $200.10 a month. They demand that the top rate be increased $27 to a total of $65 a week or 9282.75 a month. the Southwest—not^persons in some other part of the country—are in the best position to arbitrate the matter of wages paid here, and should have something to say about whether the union's wage demands are fair. They will have to live with the decisions that are reached. They are the ones who pay the bills for telephone service. TELEPHONE COMPANY
