While this may be accepted as being true, still on the other hand, the towns and the cities should be very well satisfied with paying a larg- er share in ordor to maintain the rur- al lines because of the fact that they of necessity must to a large degree benefit by the building and operation of lines in the rural parts of the coun- try.
