Tclcphone Number 100,000 On January 20, 1960 a West Coast iristaller picked up a receiver and checked a new phone connection with the central office. That telephone-the 100,000th West Coast telephone in Washington State-was a milestone in the progrem of our company and the area we serve. Ten years ago West Coast had only 38,000 telephones in this state. In one short decade we have almost tripled in zize. Today our company is among the 10 largest of the 3,867 independent telephone companies in the country- dramatic illustration of the fact that we serve the fastest growing, most dynamic communities in the U. S. A. In order to make this astonishing growth we have solved some enormous problems and invested very large amounts of money. Actually, since 1950 we have spent almost 34 million dollars on new construction in Washington State alone. Another 53 million dollars is budgeted for 1960. Milestones, however, are only markem on the path of prog- res& We foresee continued growth and expansion of the communities we serve. To meet the growing telephone service needs of these communities we shall continue to plan and build with all available money and manpower to bring you service as fine as is available anywhere in the United States. : Serving : the : fastest : growing , communities : in the U.S.A.
