credited, as appropriate, directly to this asset account, leaving a
balance representing the unamortized cost.
(4) Within one year from the date of inclusion in this account of a
debit or credit amount with respect to a current acquisition, the
company may dispose of the total amount from an acquisition of
telephone plant by a lump-sum charge or credit, as appropriate, to
Account 6565 without further approval of this Commission, provided that
such amount does not exceed $100,000 and that the plant was not
acquired from an affiliated company.
