Just ask them quite recovered yet. they haven't According to Fred Timm, manager, of the Northwestern Bell in Algona, the period following V-J Day brought the greatest total of long distance calls in the history of the company here. And, incidentally, the average long distance calls now being handled here is 1036, as compared with 620 calls on an average business day prior to Pearl Harbor. "The little lady who is working on your long distance call is faced with a series of headaches,' Mr. Timm pointed out. "She first of all wants to keep you happy, then she has to struggle through operators all along the line trying to keep other people happy, and when she reaches her destination she may have trouble locating the party," he pointed out, all of which combined with the greatest run of long distance calls in history may mean some slight delay to the patron. Every man returning from overseas wants to call home the first thing, which is natural. Government business has required many additional calls, he declared, and this coupled with a general civilian increase in long distance use has really given the "hello" girls a run for their money. Mr. Timm didn't say so, but your reporter gathered that the phone girls will greatly appreciate consideration of the problems they face in giving the .best possible service,to long distance users.
