Burgess, Registrar BELL BY TNIE WAR, Mf: Financially the telephone company Has not profited by the war. The rate of return on the amount of money invested in telephone plant in Kentucky is, with the exception of one year, the lowest in the past seventeen years, and is still (declining. While the prices of practically everything,; including the costs of furnishing telephone service, have gone up, telephone rates have not increased on the contrary long distance telephone rates have been reduced, resulting in large saving! to telephone users in Kentucky during the pas(J three years. The schedule of pay of telephone workers is the highest it has ever been. At the same time taxes have increased tremendously. Since our, entry into the war in December, 1941, the telephone company has paid out more than $4,500,-00- 0 for federal, state, county and municipal taxes in Kentucky. 1 JT me leiepnone company i uuihjj uie largest volume of business in its history it is making less than V$ on its investment in; Kentucky, Tl ix uuugii 1- J.

The latest estimate of Kentucky population, made by the U. S. Census Bureau on November 1, 1943, shows a civilian population of 2,549,108, as compared with a population of 2,835,840 at the 1940 decennial enumeration. This is a decrease of 10.1 per cent. Yet the birth rate for the State has not declined during that period. In fact, the birthrate for 0 was one of the 1942-40.- highest recorded since 1911 and was almost 5 percent higher than in 1940. The 1943 rate shows a decrease from 1942, but is not below that of 1940, J. W. Kelly, Director, Bureau of Public Health Education, State Department of Health, pointed out today. In contrast to the situation as relates to births, the death rate for the past four years has shown only slight fluctuation, the 1943 rate being 10.6, as against 10.5 for 1940. Thus it is apparent that the incidence of births and deaths has in no way contributed to the decline in population. The population estimate of November, 1943, shows that every county in the State except three Hardin, Henderson and Jefferson has experienced a decrease ofSrom 1 to 25 per cent since 1940. Of the 300,000 loss in population, approximately 250,000 are accounted for by the number of persons in the Armed Service of the country. The remaining 50,000 is evidently due to a migration from Ken. tucky to the industrial centers in other States for em ployment. This conclusion is based on the fact that thou sands of requests have been received by the Division of Vital Statistics for certified copies of birth certificates for persons born in Kentucky but now engaged m industrial work in other States. Many of these persons are known to be heads and members of families who retain their residence in Kentucky and whose employment is only of a temporary nature. Postwar adjustments will probably return a majority of these industrial workers and those in the Service to their homes and thus restore the usual population preparatory to a normal and natural growth.
