 STRASBURG TELEPHONE COMPANY JOINS TELEPHONE AND DATA SYSTEMS
 CHICAGO, Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Leroy T. Carlson, chairman of Telephone and Data Systems, Inc. (TDS), and Dr. Sidney Hanks, chairman of the board of directors of Strasburg Telephone Co. (STRASBURG), Strasburg, Colo., have jointly announced today that the merger of Strasburg with TDS has been completed following approval by the stockholders of Strasburg and the Colorado Public Utility Commission.
 Strasburg Telephone Co., serving approximately 900 access lines, is TDS' second telephone acquisition in Colorado. Announcement was recently made of TDS' merger with Delta County Tele-Comm, Inc., based in Paonia and serving nearly 6,500 access lines.
 Strasburg, a bedroom community to Denver, is near the new Denver International Airport, which is scheduled to be completed next year. The community is also close to Front Range Airport which is expected to experience a substantial increase in commercial freight traffic because it is adjacent to Denver International. TDS Chairman Carlson commented, "Strasburg's closeness to two major airports is expected to produce substantial growth in the community. TDS is continuing to expand in growth areas of the United States as telephone company owners and boards of directors find benefit in joining a larger, deeply committed telecommunications organization."
 TDS is a diversified Chicago-based communications service company with established local telephone operations and developing cellular telephone and radio paging operations. With the completion of this and one other pending acquisition, TDS will operate 87 telephone companies in 28 states and will provide service to over 306,000 access lines.
