New Exchange Telephone Rates Effective May I, 1919 A new schedule of telephone exchange rates became effective in St. Martinville May 1 by direction of the Operating Board of the I l'ited States Telegraph and Telephone Administration, acting under the orlder of the Postmaster General of the United States. As you know. all of the lines and property of this company are )in lthe possession, control and are being operated by the United States (Government under the direction of the Postmaster General of the United States. The new rates are necessary in order that additional revenue may be secured by the government to meet the increased operating ex penses. The causes which make greater telephone revenue necessary are due to the new condlitions and the new price levels introduced by the war and are entirely beyond the control of the United States Tele. graph and Telephone Administration or of the Telephone Company. More than two years ago the Company foresaw that the tele phone system would he operated at a loss unless the rates could be ad justed to meet the increasing costs of all elements entering into the production of service. A similar rate adjustment would have been unavoidable under private control and the new rate schedule is practi cally the same we would have sought in 1918 if the government had not taken possession of our property. As stated by the Postmaster General, the owners of the tele phone system do not benefit in any way from rate changes. Practical ly all of the increased operating expenses which require this additional reveniue are duine to increased wages paid to employes to enable them to lmeet the new conditions of life in the ;.: . : It is neither practicable nor desirable to reduce wages, and so f;ar as wages are concerned we believe that portion of the increased operating expenses to be permanent. The new rate schedule is fair and reasonable and the percentage ot increased revenue which it will produce is much lower than the in creased cost of other Fervices anl commodities of similar character. Complete detailed information about the new rates may be ob. tained at the manager's office. We are making every effort to change our records proptly and your courteous consideration will be appre ciated. CUMBERLAND TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY INCORPORATED Chief of Red Cross Kiddies "'VS W. J. STUDEBAKER Ten million children rushed to en roll in the Junior Red Cross 14 the fall of 1917, when it wei decided to organ ize them for work. They seized the opportunity to release their energies and demonstrate their bellef in the outcome of the war against autocracy. W WE DU ALL KINDS OF JOB PRINTING The children all over the nation, real izing that they must work together, were asking what they could do. It was in this spirit that the Red Cross was organized, and having proven it self of so much value and so vital :o the social accomplishments of the school, teachers throughout the coun try have learned that this spirit of service that the children have devel oped during the period of war must not be allowed to die. W. J. Studebaker, formerly city su perintendent of schools at Des Moines, Iowa,. himself an educator, who has taken over the work of National Di rector of Junior Activities, realizes what a potent factor the education of the children of America in the spirit of service has been in the period of war and what it can develop under the new Peace Program for the Juniors. 'This new spirit of service, this new power to do, the new impulse to give is awaiting the new Peace Program to find its outlet. But the spirit of service, as epito mized in Junior Red Cross, must have the power of sympathy and the love of mankind behind it, in order to pre vent mechanical effort. When these three factors are properly mixed in the work of the Ju.;iors it makes the thing that stretches the hands ao help across the sea.
