Practically every business telc- phonn user served by the company in the state will pay a higher rate but charges for home telephones in several larger communities, includ- ing Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth Bibbing. Rochester, and Winona, will not be changed. In Duluth, charges for two-party business phones also will stay at present levels. Where the company asked state- wide Increases averaging 27 per cent, the commission grunted an over-all average increase of 8.75 per cent. Intrastatc toll rates were rais- ed 12.71 per cent. In cases where increases were granted, they range up to ft month on business phones and up to a month on residence phones. Chase Dlmcnlii The order was approved by Com- missioners N. J.
