THE TEIJEPHONE SITUATION IN LOUISIANA.
At the present time, the Telephone Co., and the Railroad Commission
are getting their share of criticism for the recent decision of the pom
mission for allawing an increase of rates. The question so often asked
why the Telephone Company could operate during the war without an
increase of rates when everything was sky high in price, and ask for
an increase now when prices are falling, is well answered in a frank
statement in which they say that there is nothing concerning its opera
tions in the State of Louislana about which it will not give full informa- th
tion upon request. This really marks a new era in corporation manage
ment, and will meet with very hearty approval upon the part of the public, g'
whose servant it is, in its efforts to account for the responsibilities rest
ing upon it ofr furnishing a reasonably satisfactory and comprehensivel n
telephone service. de
After the telephone proprties of the United States were taken over
by the Government in 1918. under a guarantee to pay to the Companies al
their Aixed charges and their annual dividends, it was soon discovered e
by the bovernment that the expense of operating the properties was in
eressed so rapidly that a general revision of the telephone rates would
be necessary in order for the Government to meet the guaranteed returns t
to the elephone companis. R
upon the Government's request, the engineers of the telephone cont- n
peales throughout the pnited States prepared new schedules of rates e
which it was thought wouldAe sufficient to bring the earnings of the Com- ti
pastes up to the guarantee of the Government, and these schedules of p
rates were approved by the Government and put into effect while under
its jurisdlction in the earT part of 1919. t
These increases in rates were general throughout the United States le
th a very limited number of exceptions, and the increase in the State of
, as a whole, represented an approximate increase of only 12
- per cent upon the gross receipts of the Company.
When the telephone properties were turned back to the companies a
by the Government in August, 1919, permission was secured from the
Railroad Commissions of the various states to continue for a period of i
one year or thereafter until they should be revoked or amended by the b
This permission was secured /t order that the rates established by t]
the Government should have one whole year's trial to see just what rev- b
ape would be produced by them in a complete year's pqrformance.
While it has been known by the Company's engineers for some months T
that the rates in effect were falling much short of the Company's dividend '.
requirements, it was thought best to keep faith with the public, and not ,
ask for a revision of these schedules pending Ihis one year's trial. d
In the Company's applicatioq for an 'ncrease in rates at this time. ,t
It is, therefore, in a position to 'ubmit its requirements for increased rev- t
enae, not upon a mere hypothesis, but upon actual facts.
Ibe Telephone Company is greatly embarrassed at the presenh time
en account of its lack of facilities to furnish service to new .customers,
nad to provide these facilities at the present time will Ast greatly in
,asess of that at which the present facilities were provided.
There is the greatest demand for telephone service throughout the
enath that has ever been in the history of the business, and it must be
Spected that this demand will continue for many years to come. The
Saole country has had its eyes upon the South on account of its Eheap
l *kd nd its undevpioped reseonrces.
To keep up with this unusual demand will require the investment
o@ many millions of dollars, and It is nat often appreciated by the public
that the telephone service must grow taster than any other business, be
ensue otherwise It could not serve the public' with a reasonable degree
of promptness upon applicitian. It, therefore, must go in advance and
btilipate the development from a social and business standpoint, in order
Stfually perform its function as a true servant of the public.
bThe servant is worthy o( its hire. The matter of just compensa
Is' f or services rendered is one of equal, responsibility upon the part of
g ui t end served. Without such compensation, service would soon be
itmpaired and a check upon the advancement of the whqle country wb6uld

A RAT CATCHING SQUAD OF NEW ORLEANS o
THIS QUESTION OF SUNDAY. hE
"Shall the United States abolish Sunday?" asks Henry Ford's paper. he
Of course not. But there is a lot in the viewpoint. ti
Of late we have been having much talk concerning "blue laws" -
and many papers of New York, Chicago and other large cities have worked
themselves into a fine frenzy about it. Most of the talk is bunk. Very
few of the people who are campaigning for a "purer" Sunday want to
go half as far as these organs of opinion say they do. ,
Sunday observance is largely a matter of viewpoint. What one
man considers Sunday work is not so considered by another man. What
one person holds as desecration, of the day another man holds as no
desecration at all.
Nevertheless, let the man--.specially the workingman-who decries
all Sunday observance, beware. On what foundation does the day of
rest-Sunday-lay? What is the sole influence that upholds it?
the Christian religion. Nothing else.
What would happen if the' Christian religion were made negligible in $
the United Statesd States, and i, thereupon, Sunday became as any other day?
Results would be the same as in pagan China, where the workingman has
no day of.rest at all. And as in Japan where no Christian religion is pres- N
ent to see tha people get their one day in seven; where the law allows
the worker one day off in 30, which. however, he doesn:t get it the em
ployer can help it. V
Don't belittle your American Sunday too much, folks, or some day ti
the mass of the people may be like the degraded Chinese and the no
less degraded people of Japan in in the mass. C
SKY FIGHTERS VS. SEA FIGHTERS.
They are having a terrible time down in Washington over the question
as to whether the giant battleship or the airplane is the airplane is the better man.
A certain number of sky ship men insist that the day of the battleship
is over; that the. military airplanes with their high explosive bombs will
be able to sink the best of them. Therefore, no more battleships should
be built. -
The navy experts all deny this. They say it-will be many years before
the airships will be able to destroy a swift, armored, skillfully maneuvered a
battleship, it ever.
The other day there was a test of the skill of the military airplanes.
The old battleship Indiana was 4owed out to sea. anchored and abandoned.
The air captains began to drop their smartest bombs on her. When they
were all through, the Indiana still floated triumphant. i Of c'irse, her
deckworks were ripped up a bit and she was a good deal of a wreck above
board. It must be remembered also that there wa, nobody on board her
jto oppose the air bombardment with anti-aircraft guns.
However, the test didn't satisfy the sky fighters and now they have
gotten a bill into the Senate to turn over all obsolete naval ships to tlitir
