BUNCCT WHISKEY. 86.8 Ptool. te% Grain HeirM Spirits. SeagrenvDisWIers Corpois'ion, Chrys!ei Building, NtwYork To insure a continuously improving and expanding telephone service, the company has announced that next week il will have to ask approval by the Arkansas Public Service Commission of a further adjustment in rates for local service in the 7-1 exchanges served by the company in Arkansas and on long distance calls within the stale. "Profitless prosperity" The telephone company today is enjoying "profitless prosperity." It has more telephones . . . more switchboards . . . more wire and cable . . . more employees ... inbre revenues ... more expenses. The only exception is earnings. De- spile the rate increase last year, earnings on company operations in Arkansas are as low as hi the worst year of the depression—less than 3 per cent on capital invested—and here's why. Higher costs have largely offset last increase Last December, several months after the rale increase became effective, a general wage adjustment increased wages and associated costs in Arkansas nearly a million dollars a year. Other items of expense continued to rise through 1918 and substantial unex- pected expense was caused by storms and Hoods earlier this year. During 1948 each telephone gained in Arkansas meant, on the average, a new plant investment of $383, compared with an investment per telephone of Si30 before the war. Because of increased costs the higher earnings expected from last year's rate adjustment cannot be realized Thai is the situation at a time when the company must raise millions of dollars to carry on the telephone improvement and expansion program in Arkansas on which 25 million dollars has already been expended since Ihe war. The new plant we have installed has enabled us to increase the number of telephones in service from 11-J.OOO to 180,000—half again as many as were in service on V-J Day. But there are still 10,000 people waiting for telephones along with 17,500 requests for individual or two-parly lines from present party-line customers; and each month 3,500 new orders come in. More service can be provided only !))• installing more facilities, but we can't build telephone plant unless we c;wi attract tl»e money to pay for it. Investor*' money builds the plant The money to build new plant docs not come from profits. It comes from hundreds of thousands of people in all walks of life-investors-who own telephone stocks and bonds. It comes, indirectly, from millions of people wlio have savings accounts or insurance policies with institutions which have purchased Bell System securities, If yo« have a savings account or a life insurance policy perhaps you have a stake in Ihe Bell System. Investment funds are atlracted mainly by reasonable earnings. People will place their savings with us only when what we have to offer suits them better than investment opportunities offered by other businesses. Our Arkansas earnings of just under 3 per cent on invested capital are much less than those of industry in general. Consequently, there is no alternative but to ask for a rate increase to improve earnings so we can attract the millions of dollars so urgently needed to keep pace with the growth of the stale. Telephone rales up to last year remained unchanged while the prices of most olher tilings went up and up. We put off raising rates as long as we could; last year's increase was the first general increase in 30 years and it increased total revenues 15 per cent—about one fourth of the rise in the cost of living. ShaVI the company go ahead? It all comes down to the fact that ft is important to the prosperity of the state that the telephone company lie progressive and financially healthy. Everyone wants adequate earnings for the use of money he has saved. Only if our rates permit those earnings will we be able to obtain the funds to meet your needs—to continue to furnish Arkansas with the improving and expanding service its people want and should have. That is why we are again obliged to ask for increased rates. SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY
