proper persons iiil .--IL. fl. jll-LIL-j mmmwm mm mmm mmmmmm Your Telephone Operator EVERY morning 6,000 young women take their places at more than two miles of switchboard, sitting exactly two feet apart, to render the telephone service in nine southern states. Back of them are 3,000 more to keep the service continuous each hour, each day, year in and year out. They are your telephone operators. Not every girl can become a Bell telephone operator. We are, as careful in selecting them as we are in training them. They must be healthy, of a cheerful disposition and ambitious to win success in life. The voice that responds to your telephone signal is that of an intelligent human being, quick wilted, courteous and anxiousjo render efficient service. v Telephone operators know the value of co-operation. They help each other in handling calls and this team work is reflected in your service. When you co-operate with them they respond in kind and experience a joy in serving you. Two subscribers and one or more operators make a team. Get in the team. Don't pass on to the operator your troubles with somebody else. She may get fed up on such relations and pass it on to those who do not deserve it. It is essential to good service that telephone operators should be healthy and happy. For this reason their working conditions are as nearly perfect as it is possible to make them. They have attractive and homelike rest rooms. They have lunch rooms where proper food, prepared by experienced cooks, is daintily served at less than actual cost. The operating rooms are well lighted, heated and ventilated and every feature of sanitation is thoroughly supervised. Their health and happiness is safeguarded and they are surrounded with every protection that the most exacting and solicitious mother could devise. Telephone operators are frequently called upon to act quickly in emergencies when courage and presence of mind are required. Always the operator has stood out a hero on occasions of this kind. Naturally we are proud of these girls. You would be, too, if you knew more about their work and the ideals and traditions of their profession. SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY T. L.
