Telephone Payroll The telephone payroll in Arkansas is $10,000,000 a year. The telephone company is the second largest employer in the state. It's easy to see that the telephone business is important to the people of Arkansas, not only for tliG service it furnishes, but for the money it spends and the jobs it creates. Telephone people spend their wagas with Arkansas merchants—for food, clothing, gasoline and oil, etc.—for rent or payments on a house. They aU contribute lo the economic welfare of the state. The telephone business spent more money in Arkansas last year than the company's customers paid for local service and for long distance calls within the slate. If new rales can be oblained that will justify going ahead with the $38 million Greater Arkansas Telephone Program, the telephone business will spend even moro money in Arkansas. Docs anyone here seriously question that this program means greater prosperity for Arkansas? Southwestern Bell Telephone Company A GREATER ARKANSAS NEEDS A GREATER ARKANSAS TEUPHONE PROGRAM
