NOTICE
STATE OF COLORADO. )
COUNTY OF GUNNISON. ) SS
IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE
SEVENTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT,
IN THE MATTER OF THE ADJUDI
CATION OF WATER PRIORITIES
IN WATER DISTRICT NO. 59.
WHEREAS, By an order of the
District Court of the Seventh Judi-
j To Build and Foster
A COMMUNITY always welcomes the establishing of an institution j
that fills a recognized community need; unfortunately it doesn’t
« always manifest a lively interest in the health of such an insti- B
a tution after it is established. I
3 It is one thing to establish industries; it is quite another thing to B
t build up, develop and maintain them. H
3 An industry can be established by the investment of capital; ita “
1 development and maintenance depend upon the attitude of the public '
toward the enterprise and toward the product. !
Likewise, the permanency of an institution depends upon the will- I
ingness of its customers to pay a sufficient price for its product to enable !
it to continue strong and healthy financially.
The Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Company’s system of i
wires, furnishing the means of communication over mountains, plains
« and desert, is a tremendous factor in the development of the West.
gj| Telephone service is a “home product” of every community in the
I mountain states, and is woven into the very warp and woof of commercial
and social life. The permanency and adequacy of telephone service de
pend upon the same factors as are involved in the security and per
manency of every other established industry.
With very, very few exceptions the people of the West recognise
these principles and pursue a “lire and let live” policy toward all
legitimate business institutions.
The Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph
Company
cial District of the State of Colorado,
nmoe in open Court on the 14th day
of April, 1919, the undersigned was
