Business Mirror ·y JOHN CUNNIFF AP Buiineu N*wi Annlyit NEW YORK (AP) - The energy and initiative required to mail a preacldressed envelope by midnight tonight is all that stands between certain shareholders of American Telephone Telegraph Co. and a worthwhile sum of money. This is the last day, that is, for thousands of ATT share holders to cash in on their company's tremendous capital raising project, shareholders participate, acted' yet. All 3.1 million were invited to Thousands haven't For the owner of 105 shares of ATT stock, (his failure to respond to the offer is the equivalent of declining a cash gift of $45.94, based on prices before tiie opening of the slock market today. John J. Scanlon, treasurer, reports that returns through Friday were slower than for a roughly comparable 1958 offering, but that a late avalanche of mail is still expected to make the offering a big success. This is the story: ATT needs money to finance expansion. The total was fixed at $1.569 billion, a record sum for this, the largest corporate entity in the world. It decided to seek the money from its own shareholders. A complex financing plan was announced last January. ATT decided to entice its shareholders to come up with the money by offering this deal: Every stockholder was declared to possess rights in the same number of his shares of stock. For each 35 rights, or shares, the stockholder was entitled to purchase a $100 ATT bond, technically called a debenture. But why buy a $100 bond at its foce value when the same bond could be purchased in the market at between $97 and $98? For this reason: --The purchase of a bond entitles the owner to receive two warrants, each entitling him to buy, anytime between Nov. 15 1970 and May 15, 1975, a share of ATT common stock at $52 a share. "Some bargain!" you ex- night in the preaddressed envelope. A check will be sent to him. --Sign his name on the clearly of the certificate that transfers the rights to another person. This person must be named on the form. And, of course, that person then must mail his order for bonds by the midnight dateline. What must be remembered is that the rights have no value after midnight. If the stockholder still wishes to become involved in the offer, he must send $100 and 35 rights, again to be postmarked by tonight. If he doesn't possess as many rights as he needs, he may purchase these by filling out the appropriate section of the certificate sent him and sending it in with his order. The money for the bonds must accompany the order. He will be billed later for the additional rights. Life's Like 'I hat "WE COMMUNICATE,ALL RI6Hl! ATA COST OF ABOUT 5K A WORD !* Vietnamese Mean To Stay claim, noting that shares o: ATT closed Friday at $46.75 each. True, that's the price now but that price can reasonably be expected to climb above $52 a share during the next five years. In fact, a good many people are willing to bet on this occurring. Therefore, they are willing to pay you more than $9 each for those warrants, should you be inclined to sell. Your $100 bond is really worth more than $115. Rut. you ask, hnw can a shareholder of 105 shares stand to lose more than $45 if he doesn't mail an envelope by to- nicht? Kor this reason: Those rights have also taken on a value of their own. A market lias developed for them; a lot of investors are willing to buy those rights from shareholders. At the close of stock market (ratline; on Friday, you may note, the price of ATT rights was 7-16 of $1, or .4375 cents each. If a shareholder owns 105 rights, their value early today was .$45.94. However, a good many people who do not intend to buy those $100 bonds apparently feel thai the matter is therefore closed for them and that they can toss the return envelope in the wastebasket. If they do, they toss away the value of the rights. For that reason, every ATT shareholder is compelled, in justice to himself, to take some action. If he wishes to obtain the market value for his rights he has theseo ptions: --Sell the rights to a broker although it's pretty late for that --Signh is name on the clearly designated line of the certificate sent to him and mail it by mid New Punishment PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - John W. Joyner and his wife are suing South Central Bell Tele phone Co. for $10,000, claiming menial suffering because of er roneous telephone calls. The suit, filed Friday in Me Cracken Circuit Court, statec the couple brought the matter tc the company's attention anc was told "it's the work of prank slcrs." The Joyners said that whe their telephone was installe last year, they were given number already assigned to an other customer, whose nam was listed in the directory. When the 1970 directory wa issued, the Joyners said thei number was carried beside an other person's- name, and th listing for them is an incorrei number. They charged that South Cen tral failed to advise them tha an intercept cou\d be placed o the line to divert wrong cal and that they have "suffere vexation, annoyance, anxietj great mental pain and suffe ing." STUTTGART -- Civil scrvic workers have an annual 8 pe cent raise in pay scales. By PETER ARNETT Associated Prest Writer NEAK LUONG, Cambodia (AP) -- At this neat little ferry lown 23 miles inside Cambodia, Nguyen Cao Ky gave voice to intentions that have become increasingly obvious in the current Indochina crisis: the Vietnamese army expects to stay in Cambodia a long time. "There is no deadline for the withdrawal of Vietnamese troops," South Vietnam's vice president told a cluster of newsmen Tuesday. "The future depends on a common plan with the Cambodians. If they really need our help we will stay here. We will stay until they feel they have the strength to fight the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese by themselves. Only then will we go." Firepower Evident As Ky spoke Vietnamese fighter-bombers roared across the Mekong to support Cambodian troops fighting to the west of tlj£ river. The mottled green uniforms of a Vietnamese ma rine battalion blended with the distant jungle foliage. They were moving to open Viet Cong "Once the war is over we can land the airfields to the Cambodians and they can use them," commented Ky, sounding very much like American planners at he time dozens of airfields vere being built inside South Vielnam. The Vietnamese have already determined the number of roops they can leave in Cambodia. "We have the 9th Infantry Division, which is our mobile unit; hen we have the task forces of ·angers, marines and para- roopcrs, held Route 1 that runs through eastern Cambodia to the Viet- amese border. Speedy riverboats laden with ietnamese sailors were plow- g up the Mekong to the capita' 1 Phnom Penh and perhaps oinls beyond.

Fluid War More troops might be needed in the future, Ky said. "This is a fluid war, wilh the intentions of the enemy right now to escape to the mirth. We don't know what they intend to do--some day they might come back in force to attack Plmom Penh. We need more men to handle that." Asked if he was aware of President Nixon's plans to withdraw American forces from Cambodia by June 30. Ky replied, "I am thinking about, this problem of fighting without American advisers. That is why I am here today. We are now making plans to carry on in Cambodia without American support." Ready to Commit Ky's comments indicated that he was ready to commit South Vietnam to the defense and strengthening of the new Cambodian government of Lon Nol. Like President Nguyen Van Thicu, Ky seems ready to overlook the 'anti-Vietnamese nature of the Phnom Penh regime, which is expelling thousands of Vietnamese, for the long-term aim of spreading the war into Cambodia and thereby holding off the North Vietnamese at a Guaranteed Watch Repairing 6,50 Clpaning, Oiling and Adjusting Westview Watch Shop In Gilbert's Pharmacy 2424 10th St. FOR THE COLLEGE-BOUND __ GRADUATE O/ymp/a Portable!

The land upon which we conduct most all of our human affairs is something which we all take for granted, seldom stopping to reflect that it is the one thing we can never increase (or diminish). The land we have right now is all we will ever have, and that is why the judicious management of its usage is of utmost importance.
