To Telephone Users- The increasing costs of the past several years have reached a point where, in order to continue to furnish adequate and reliable telephone service, it is imperative that additional revenue be provided promptly. The revenue increases from growth in the business and from some increases in local service rates have been more than offset by substantially higher wage and material cos's and greatly increased taxes and, although we are applying every practicable economy in operations, additional revenues are necessary. The unprecedented increases in service and equipment requirements for residence and business customers, for the defense and military activities, and the protection and safeguarding of the service and property in wartime, all have necessitated more people on the payroll. The dislocations resulting from the present emergency also are adding greatly to the costs of furnishing service. Present indications are that we cannot expect reductions in costs but, on the contrary, there may be further increases. In order to meet- the needs of this situation, a general application of a surcharge of fifteen per cent will bq made on rates for local telephone service, effective with the next bill. The fifteen per cent surcharge also applies to charges for long distance calls between points within the state placed on and after April 10. Your cooperation, which has helped so much throughout the years in our efforts to meet your telephone requirements, is greatly appreciated, and* it is the purpose of this statement to present the facts regarding our present situation in order that we may continue to merit your confidence.

Marsh RUMMAGING through my desk the other day, I came across some snapshots of friends of mine made back in 1933. If you don't think time flies ... if you don't think this world ever changes ,\ . you ought to look at the women's hats and dresses in those pictures taken 9 years ago! Wowl . * * * , It gave me quite a start.... and then it set me to thinking ... and remember in'! Lots of things sure happened in 1933. A new administration in Washington ... the turning point of the depression ... and the coming of Repeal. I remember thel-e-legalization of beer. It came before Repeal, when Congress amended the old Volstead Act to allow legal sale of "3 T beer. What talk and arguments they had in those days! One argument I remember well .. . was that beer would do a lot to help bring back prosperity.'! wondered at the time whether that argument could be proved. \ ' . ' ' t thought about that again, theA other day. I decided to check uj> and find out. / ',. , , Well, t found out-plenty, t found out that legal beer has paid) more than 3 billion dollars in taxes, since 1933. It has made more than a million new jobs. / .•'"•• According to one of the report*' 1'ye seen,-beer has nut more than 15 billion dollars into general business circulation, Goodness me,, that's a lot of money. Beer is sold today In every stat« in the Union. Every state benefit*from beer's Jobs and taxes.
