Here's what has been done in the first six months of 1951 to expand and improve telephone service in Arkansas EXPANDED FACILITIES FOR DEFENSE At Camp Cliallce, the number of public telephones has been increased and long distance facilities have been enlarged. Military arsenals at Pine Blulf and Camden have received expanded telephone communications. Work has begun on the underground cable between Little Hock and Pine Bluff which will be the "backbone" of long distance circuits to Southeast Arkansas. NEW DIAL SYSTEMS UNDER WAY Construction has begun on new telephone buildings in 5 Arkansas cities and towns. Two more were begun in July. These buildings will house new dial telephone systems for each of these communities. 6,OOO CUSTOMERS OFFERED HIGHER GRADES OF SERVICE We were able to offer private-line or two-party service to mail)' of you \vlvo have requested higher grades of service. We will continue to build new lines and install new equipment, so that more and more Arkansans can get the type of service they want. More than 750 farm telephones have been added in rural areas we serve. f, $jyyi MORE EMPLOYEES FOR BETTER SERVICE Despite the tremendous amount of wire and poles and equipment it takes to make your telephone work, it's the human factor that controls the excellence of your service. Here In Arkansas, 3,800 skilled telephone men and women—man)' of whom have been added in recent mouths—are on the job around the clock to keep your service equal to the world's best. $3Vi MILLION SPENT TO IMPROVE AND EXPAND SERVICE So far, in the first six months of 1951, the gross cost of telephone expansion in Arkansas is $3'/2 million. Unlike most businesses, growth in the telephone business doesn't mean prosperity. In fact, this growth has forced telephone earnings down in Arkansas since the first of the year. Only fair and reasonable rate adjustments can keep the telephone business financially sound. The first half of 1951 has been busy and productive. The prospects are that the iast half of the year will be even busier. Right now, we're awaiting delivery of $1,270,000 worth of equipment and supplies already on order. Al least 68 major projects have been approved and will cither get under way or be completed before the year's end. We'll continue our best efforts to serve you courteously, promptly and accurately. We'll continue to meet Arkansas' demands for more and better telephone service to the limit of ovir financial means. SOUTHWESTERN BELL P TELEPHONE COMPANY FOR FASTR LONG DtSTANCi SERVICE... CALL
