Because tne important to Considered on a yearly basis, our present revenues in this state are approximately $593,000 less annually than are nec essary to pay operating expenses' and earn 8 per cent interest annually on 'the money invested in our property. . service to In order to provide for the extension, of ouV new, people and to new areas we' must obtain ovor $1,000 new money annually irom lnvestars. To cet this money be able to pay our operating expanses and earn such a ,000 of we must rate ,of interes t invest . as will, prove attractive to those who have money to This condition has made it neoessary for us to ask the Nebraska Railway Commission to approve an increase in our rates. But even with the increase asked for, our total rev enues will only be sufficient to enable us to earn approxi mately 62 per cent annually on our investment in this state. An increase of 10 per oent has been asked in exchange rates to be applied as a sirr-charge. "This course has been followed rather than to request complete hewschedules of rates, be cause it is impossible under present conditions to determine what permanent rates should be.' A change in long dis tance rates has been requested which will produce approximately a 7 per cent increase in our toll revenues. These changes apply only on person to-person calls. No changes will be made in station-to-station toll rates. You are well aware of the increases which have taken place in wages, material prices, freight rates, fuel prices, rents and interest rates. The price of all these items and others' affect the cost of furnishing telephone service. To illus trate: We are now paying over $1,700,000 more annually in wages in this state than three years ago, of which only $750,000 is for new employees added during that period. And ' the cost of materials used in the up-keep of our property has just' about doubled the last few years. vft ' Th"is statement giviilg the public feel sure that it fairness public .s 'l . ft: is made in accordance with our policy of full information ab.out our will be affairs and accepted in the same spirit of and co-operation that has always characterized the attitude toward this company. we- NEBRASKA TELEPHONE COMPANY 91' 'ST ; President Want Ads For Sale Call ducks.
