Some- i times you may not get as prompt an answer from the operator as you are used to. Today the volume of long ^distance calls is 100% greater than in 1940 and more than 30% higher than last year;: The usual summer increase in calling is much greater this year than ever before. Although we are adding long distance facilities, the ^ volume of calling is going iip much faster than lines can be built to handle them. The present acute materials shortage is adding to out task. We will do our best to \ put your calls through promptly but when there is a delay, we will appreciate your patience.
