MONDAY, AUGUST 28, 1930 U.S. to Tighten Controls On Trade with Russians BLYTHEVTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS By JOHN' M. HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON, Aug. 28. Wj—Tile United Stales has decided to try to tighten up the system of trade controls by which strategic materials are supposed to be kepi from Russia. State and Commerce Department officials concede in talks uilh newwn that important war po- lenlSi goo<*s h.,ve been leaking out to the Communist countries through loopholes. But closing those loopholes Involves a difficult problem of cooperation by olhcr governments since most of them are In Western Europe. Some American experts on economic policy say that what the United States is faced with here is economic warfare with the Communist countries. Others contend the question Is simpler, being concerned solely with preventing the Russians from batting American or VVcMoru European goods which would aid them in a military sense. Council Reviews Matter Tht whole matter was reviewed by ihe President's top policy making aec-ncy. the National Security Council, last Thursday. Reliable sources who cannot be named say the government then decided that fleps must be taken to prevent the loss of important materials now go- Ing through to the Soviets, The first Important move along this line Is expected to be taken by Secretary of State Achcson when he meets with British Foreign Minister Bcvln and French Foreign Minister Schuman in New York Sept. 12. ' Licenses Cancelled Recently wjrd got out here that » shipment of about 50 tons of the stcfflthardenlng metal molybdenum, e.\«l|:ed from the United Slates to Britain was then transhipped to the Soijet Union. Learning of this the Commerce Department cancelled the license which would have permitted shipment of n large additional quantity, On another phase of the sf>me problem, former Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared In a political speech In Britain Saturday lhat a British factory was turning out tools suitable for the repair of tanks for Ihe Russians. The export control system is very loosely organized. American officials have never been satisfied with the extent lo which Western European governments, needing trade with the east and finding it profitable, were willing lo cooperate In denying Russia certain types of goods.

Why is it necessary to increase rates when the telephone system is expanding so rapidly? 7 You have a lot of new customers... why do you have to raise rates? The telephone installer says... Sounds itringe at first, but the more new customers we connect to the company's lines here in Arkansas, the less we earn on every dollar invested in Arkansas, The expenses of giving good service have gone up a lot since prewar days—more than $10 Vi million a year. But our big problem is the increased cost of adding new telephones and all the poles, wire, switching equipment, and other facilities it serve them. Just three years ago, when we ap- "plied for the rates you now pay, the equipment back of each telephone cost, on the average, $223. Last year it cost $412 in added plant for every new telephone. Every time we add a customer at present day costs, our return on each dollar invested goes down. And we have no alternative but to keep on expanding as long as more people want telephones. We earned less than Iwo cents on each dollar invested in Arkansas last year — and that figure is still going down as we spend more dollars for new plant as the number of new customers goes up, That's why it is so extremely Important that rates be increased before we can turn on the green light and go ahead with the $S8 million Greater Arkansas Telephone Program. Many millions of people's savings will need to b« invested in telephone securities. And people won't put up the money unless they see prospects for reasonable earnings. Would you?
