Plaintiffs [By Weltmer, Weltmer Weltmer Mankalo, Kansas Their Attorneys ATTEST: Carol RosS, (Se-II) of l)istriet~ :i / @ Effective October 1, 1966, reductions in intra. atate Long Distance rates and additional hours for bargain calling will save Kansans $1,320,000 annually. The reductions are the result of joint studies by the Kansas Corporation Commission and Southwestern Bell. This is the third reduction in Long Distance rates in the past four years. In a time when most prices are rising, South- western Bell is glad to be able to offer these savings on Long Distance charges. We believe continuing service improvement and operating efficiencies will justify these reductions. The reductions apply to both station-to-sta- tion and person-to-person calls between most cities in Kansas that are 39 miles or more apart. The changes are: i. On most 3-minute station-to-station calls, day and evening rates will be reduced 5 to 20 cents. For most 3-minute person-to- person calls, day and night rates will be reduced 5 to 30 cents.* . The low night rates will go into effect one hour earlier at 8 p.m. instead of 9 p.m. The new low night rates also will apply all day Sunday. 8. Evening station-to-station rates will start at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. Evening rates also will apply all day Saturday until 8 p.m., when the lower night rates become effective. Kansans who call friends and relatives within the state at night or on Sunday are expected to benefit most from the new reduced rates. Under the new schedule the lowest night rates will be available to Kansas telephone users an additional 22 hours a week. The lower evening rates will be available for an additional hours on Saturday. h *On sent-pald station-to-station calls a two- minut minimum initial period is applicable. The initial period /or col[ect, credit card, and all person-to-person calls i~ three minutes. The rate Ior a two.minute call is approximately two-third# tl~ cost o] a 3-minute call. P
