Drag Store B^ •r«a«M> Fh*M 476 We in the Bell System were adding telephones at the rate of three million a year until shortages started getting worse. Now it's harder and harder for us to get materials for manufacturing and building. We aren't complaining for we are in the same boat as everyone else. But we thought you might like to know the supply situation on some of the biggest items in the telephone business. i LEAD—There is a world shortage of it. Even when conditions here straighten out, it will be some time before adequate supplies are available. COPPER—It is in great demand but • we shall probably have adequate supplies when the smelting, refining, and fabricating plants get going. TEXTILES—A serious shortage exists in cotton and synthetic yarns and fabrics.- STEEL—Strikes in steel and coal industries have affected the supply in the face of unprecedented demand. RUBBER —Synthetics are in fair supply, but natural rubber is on government allocation. LUMBER — It is scarce, due to both ' unusual demand and dislocation of the lumber trade. BRASS MILL PRODUCTS—These are used in telephone central office switches and other equipment. Supply will be short until disturbed conditions in the copper industry are settled, permitting brass mills to get back to full-scale production. It's a tough situation, but we aren't giving up, any more than you have given up trying to get butter or sugar or shirts. We're doing the best we can with what we've got and hoping these disturbed conditions will end^ so that we can really go full speed ahead. From HARRY FRITZ1US!
