Bell Telephone Asks for Rate Increase Citmg a pressing need for rate relief, Illinois BeU Telephone today asked the Illinois Commerce Com¬ mission for its seoond general rate increase in 18 years, ^j President Charles L. Brown em- f phasized that the company was not ¦'asking for rate increases to be ef- 'feotive during the wage-price freeze. He said, however, that it was re- ' questing the Conimisaon to initiate hearings as promptly as possible in view of the urgency of its financial plight. George A. Lincoln, director of the Office of Emergency Preparedness, he reported, recently nied that "there is no federal policy requiring state agencies to postpone itate hear¬ ings. To the contrary, it is expected that state and federal agencies will continue to fulfill tbeir administra-^ tive duties during the freeze as long as they do not grant rate in¬ creases to take effect during the freeze." Brown edso noted the possible ef¬ fects of the "post-freeze" economic stabilization program called for by President Nixon. "In any event," he declared, "we would expect that rate increases would be granted, only in accordance wich any lawful price restriction whicb may be im¬ posed." Effect of the rate proposal would be to increase Illinois Bell's annual revenues by about $182 million, a- bout half cf which would go for taxes. Past inflation already has elim¬ inated all of the revenue benefit from the company's rate action of 1969, Brown pointed out. , "Since our last rate request," he said, "all costs of providing service have continued to rise, particularly wage costs. Substantial wage agree¬ ments for well over half of our em¬ ployees represented by unions are now in effect. A similar offer has been made to System Council T-4, International Brotherhotod of Elec¬ trical Workers, on whidh bargaining is still in progress. Altogether, we estimate these agreements will re¬ sult in an increase in company ex¬ pense of about $200 million during the three-year lives of the con¬ tracts. "Stringent expense control as a way of life and fullest employment of impiroved communications tech¬ nology simply have not stemmed the onrush of- rising costs." In comment on effect of the pro- ()osal for customers. Brown said: "During the last 10 years, the aver¬ age price of telephone service tvas gone up 4 per cent, including last year's inct<ease, while the cost of living has gone up 33 per cent. So even with the new rates we are proposing, tel^Jhone service will re¬ main a bargain item." He also said the company's con¬ struction program, needed to meet customers' growing needs fcM- ser¬ vice, underlies the critical necessity for improvement in earnings per¬ formance, which « now clearly in¬ adequate. "We're now spewSog more than $1 million every day, on average, for constructicMi," Buown said. "For 1971, the total will be about $385 million, and for this decade we ex- Conntlnned on Page Two BELL TELEPHONE INCREASE Menu of the Week MENU - Week of 10-4 - 10-8 .... Monday — Pizza burgers.
