On the Basis of Facts The life of our country is built around its Public Utilities. Our social, industrial and Gov ernment activities could not ex ist today without the continued operation of their indispensable services. That such services may be ex tended and developed to be of the greatest use to the greatest number, the Federal Govern ment and practically all the states have appointed Public Service Commissioners as per manent tribunals to regulate public utilities with fairness to all concerned. Facts as to the past and studies as to the future, the Bell Companies find are essential to the proper management and development of their business. This information is open to study by these Commissioners and through them by the public generally. The solution of the problem of building up and maintaining the public utilities, which is of the greatest importance to the people of this country, is assured whenever all the facts are known and given their due weight.
