Since publishing the facts and coHiparisdnrf irt-re'gard to tele
phone service 1:1 the Saturday and Sunday papers, .attention has
been called to a pamphlet issued by-jtjfq pfbijs serfifceA.'oinniission
of Maryland in which they report their'netion in an exhaustive in
vestigation of the telephone rates in the City of Baltimore.
In order to give the people of Columbia some further under
.stiinding of what is considered a fair price for telephone service I
desire to add some of the orders of the Maryland Commission fixing
rates for the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Co. of Baltimore
City. The orders of thes Telephone Commission in. part are as fol

Audit jI local
When a man leaves his home, per
haps thousands of miles away, to at
tend school in a strange new land, a
natural question arises. Why did he
choose the University of Missouri
rather than a school nearer his ownj
home? The men to whom this ques
tion was put gae various answers,
all pointing to just one thing that
the University of Missouri is known
far and wide. It is advertised in the
effective primitive way by word of
Here are sdme of the reasons as
given by the men themselves:
Yick K. Wong,1 Kwong Tong Pro-f
vince, China: "I landed in California
with the intention of attending some
American University, though I had no
idea which. Through chance I made
the acquaintance of a Mr. Joseph G.
Sanchz. He spoke so highly of the
University of Missouri that I was In
fluenced to come here."
Fred W. Shorter, Sidney, Australia:
"The Bible College, extensively adver
tised by Hugh Novell, brought me
Cho Sei Kyun, Ping Yang, Korea:
"I went to Hawaii to study, and there
became acquainted with Miss L. R.
Rogers, who was a student here. She
taught me English and also art. When
I completed the courses she taught
she insisted that I go to the Univer
sity of Missouri and continue with my
art. And I came."
Andrew Yamagishi, Tokyo, Japan:
"Mr. Thomas Punlap, of Breckenridgc,
Mo., came to Tokio and opened a store
there. I got to know him, and once
discussed education with him. As
soon as I reached the subject, he be
gan to talk of the University of Mis
souri. After his description of the
advantages here. I could not do other
wise than come."
Shizno Sasaki, Nagasaki, Japan: "I
met Mr. Okubo, a former student here,
and he said that the best place for
a foreign student to study in the Uni
ted States was at the University of
Missouri. So I came."
Cyprus R. Mitchell, Melbourne Aus
tralia: "I came to the University of
Missouri to get the Missourlan's view
point of American democracy."
Hiromu Tsuchiya, Osaka, Japan: "I
have already spent three years in the
University of Iowa. I am taking sen-
The rales per telephone and per 100 calls added by the writer.
Additional local messages may be contracted for, in blocks of
600. at -.OO per hundred, provided at leaSt'onefaukiliary line and
station shall be contracted for at the established rate for each $400
or less of such additional local messages in excess of $400." (
There are several other schedules included in the order of thVTJor medica work hefe. and after 1 get
Commission,- covering different) grades of service, but this schedule
stipulates the very lowest rates5 nhhied ior service per message av
eraging five calls or more per day per telephone. The .average for
Columbia is approximately 9.5 calls per day.' 1
The rates per 100 calls in Baltimore for less than five calls per
day run as high as $6.25 per hundred calls $3.25 per telephone, at
which rate the subscriber is entitled to 600 calls a year, and must
pay 5c each for additional calls.
The order of the Commission further fixes a flat rate for resi
dences of $4.00 per month, so that people may have residence ser
vice at $4.00 a month, or on a message basis as indicated above.
The average calling rate in Columbia is alibut 3,6do calls a .year
Per telephone. It will be seen that on. this basis of calls the Balti
more Company receives $3.10 per 10Qo calls, -where-as in ..Columbia
e receive 61 cents, which is a lo,wer price than is paid at any other
point to be mentioned in comparison with this service. Of course
Baltimore is larger and has more telephones than Columbia. Con
sequently, the rate per telephone would necessarily be higher, but
why should the rate per message be so much higher ,i Columbia is
getting too much? (adv.) J..A. HUDSOX.
