VOL XXVIll MARCH 10. 1921 No. 441 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 ,C ommissions. 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 aIoes-arily follow, yhteh would be to the detriment and disadvantage of aBS esoeeerned. S Other commodities have advanced by leaps and bounds. Telephone S ·leeies a product, and subject to the sratne conditions and dependent * pen the esame factors as any other commodity. It has had the least I4ysee ha price ot any pommodity in common use among the people, aer the applieation for increased rental to enable it to command, in a gnpetitive market, safflcient capital to provide facilitles for its continued gretrth will meet with no opposition upon the part of reasonable thinking Lenten Pre-Easter Salie 2O DISCOUNT DIAMONDS, WATCHES, JEWELRY' 'end SL VERWARE Now is the loakial time to punrhame the" prepa pean intend givi Neuter.

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 "tender" mercies. SOB STUFF AND STONE HEART / THRIFT. Yesterday a mih walked down our principal street, 4'With the fringe around his trousers, Worn-oul shoes upon (as feet, And a collar that had ceased to give - Appearance clean and neat." He slo~hed along giving one the impression of a dog expecting a kick. He looked at one put of the corner of his eye. He was down and out. That fellow did not, in early life, believe in thrift. In all prob ability, in the Springtime of his youth, he boasted to himself and to his friends, that he was a "good fellow." But now that the Winter of life has come upon him, the friends of early days, either have risen to greater heights and forgotten him, or they are in the same pitiable conditiod and cannot help him. On February 3rd, we as a nation celebrated Thrift Day. Did we mark it by feasting and drink~g, or by reolving to save. Americans have learned a wonderul lesson in the last gieat war. We saved and we won. Today, clerks, tradespeople, men and women, and even boys and girls, own Liberty Bonds--and War Savings certfi cates. As a team-working nation we have accomplished titantic tasks, de clared imnpossible of exection two years ago. And it was the self-denial and the thrift of our i'ople that made th ttasks possible. Of course there was waste-enormous waste-but our saving won despite all that. Every day, every man and every *oman should take a close inRen tory of all his or her resources and reglve to exploit them during the coming year. Thrift is nothing more nor leoss than efficiency. It does not mean being a miser. The tiarifty man does not deny himself of all the comforts, much less the neceossities of ife, but he cuts down on the luuries-the knilck-knacks. He live, en less than his income. WHAT DO YO#t eNOW? e How piaty times have you been sed that idential q ~oo by the editor of this jpaper?
