plants in Iowa. One of these wns a
municipal plant that had put the town
$G8,000 in "tho hole," and was so bad
ly run down that It wns figured that it
would cost $50,000 to put it in shape.

Sometimes we hear the phrase, "Bell Monop
oly." What does it mean?
There are 19.093 cities and towns in the United
States that have telephone exchanges. An Asso
ciated Bell Telephone Company operates exclus
ively in about one-fourth of these places and Inde
pendent Companies operate in the other three-fourths.
What the Figures Say
Of the 19.093 cities and towns in the United
States that have telephone exchanges, Independ
ent Companies have a monopoly in 12,764, and
Bell Companies operate exclusively in 4,465, while
two companies compete in the other4l,864 places.
The Associated Bell Companies reach over their
own long distance lines, or the lines of Independ
ent Companies, practically all of the places that
have telephone exchanges and about 50,000 other
communities too small for exchanges.
The Bell Telephone organization has sought
universal service and not universal ownership.
