The Unkind Razor
A razor that "chews" instead of shaves is not likely to
make a good impression on the victim. You simply can not get
a good shave with a dull blade.
Neither can you get satisfactory telephone service from a
poorly equipped and operated telephone company. But what
can the telephone company do if it lacks funds to meet
You can't expect capable men and girls to work for any
concern which is unable to pay them fair .wages. And you know
by experience that what stood for fair wages two or three years
ago will not meet expenses today.
Telephone wages and upkeep must be taken care of by tho
people who use the telephone. That is certainly reasonable. So
it is plain that the service you get can be no better than that for
which you pay.
In other words tho rate you give tho telephone also decides
what the telephone can givo you.
