EVERY PERSON WITH A PARTY-LINE telephone at home knows at least three things about the service. He knows the line must be shared fairly to be useful to everyone—just as a street is shared by those on it. He knows he appreciates courtesy from others on the line—such as not inter- " rupting, and recognizing his emergency needs for the line now and then. He knows whether party-line service meets his needs. About half our customers have always preferred party-line service, even before the war, when they could have had individual lines. Today, out of each four families with telephones, about three have party-line telephones and one of them has asked for a different type of service. We'd like to be able to give it to them. We are working toward that, and arel making some progress despite the continuing heavy demand for telephone* from those still without any service. We have on file thousands of requests for some other type of service. Wherever local conditions permit, we are meeting these requests, and are keeping a careful record of all requests, to act on at th* first opportunity. SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEFHONE CO.
