For it we received, .-is one of the 24 associated companies of that System, the services of A.T. &T.'s great staff of telephone experts and engineers. Staff Services... al Cost The A.T. &T. has provided substantially at cost tlic many services this staff performs. In fact, in the last few years it has taken nn actual loss on the work it has done for the operating companies. The yearly fee we pay is equivalent to about 3/10 0 { one per cent of our investment in telephone plant. Stated another way . .. less than a cent and a half of every dollar we receive from telephone customers., >. \ Yet without it, telephone service as fast, as dear and as low in cost as you now receive would be quite unlikely. \Vc have passed on to the telephone user in the Southwest the benefits and savings of this staff work, in the belief that in an undertaking planned for the long run, like the telephone service, such a policy will ni the end bring us the sounder, more enduring success.
