A.TANT Phone 3386 or 3163 An explanation to the many people in Blytheville who are waiting for Service . , . We'd like to install telephones immediately for all who arc waiting, but we just don't have enough facilities to go around. You sec, our telephone system is being used to capacity. And we can't enlarge it because the factories that make wire, cable, and switchboards are busy turning out communications equipment and great numbers of electrical weapons for the army and navy, > Tlie result is that we can in general fill Orders for telephone service only when present customers ask us to dis- continue their service, releasing the wires, instruments, and central office equipment they have been using. Then, as far as the location and type of equipment permit, we see that those who have been waiting longest get service first. Of course, we must, as prescribed by the War Production Board, provide promptly the telephone service necessary to the war effort, or to public health or security. If you are one of those who are waiting,'we appreciate the patience and understanding with which you have helped meet this wartime problem. % SOUTHWfSTIRN BELL TftEPHONE COMPANY MARGARET'S BEAUTY SHOP 114 ft.
