"I have done nothing to be ashamed j I of." he insisted from his cell. j We're moving ahead as rapidly as possible on our program to improve and expand this city's telephone system. Construction of the new 5600,000 Cumberland telephone building is nearing completion. Inside this building, tons of complex central office equipment must be installed. And that's a job that will take time. Meanwhile, we plan to have in service by late spring additions to the present switchboards which will improve local service considerably. Every effort is being made to bring more and better telephone service to Cumberland. and here's what you can do While this time-consuming work is under way, you can help yourself to faster service by following these four suggestions — especially during the busy holiday season: Jj Whenever possible, make your calls before or after the telephone "rush hours," which are 10 A.M. to 12 Noon and 4 to 6 P.M. O Always look in your directory before calling "Information." And when you must call "Information" for a number, please jot it down for future use. JJ If you should have to wait a little longer than usual for the operator . to answer, please be patient. Switchboards are busier than ever before and sometimes every line is in use. ,^1 This Christmas, you can avoid the rush on Long Distance lines by making your greeting calls before Christmas Eve or after Christmas Day. . .
