'c'll spend an eslimatecl <100 million liars lo carry out (lie fivt'-vt'nr tclrplionc . . i - dollars lo carry out me nvt'-vear telephone construction and improvement program in (lit; Southwest. A year ago it seemed that we could do llic joh for 250 million dollars. lint today the joh is bigger, largely hecause of the continuing heavy demand, for telephones; and costs have gone up for hoth materials and labor. There are about 235,000 people wajt- ing for service in (he 700 towns we serve in Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and a part of Illinois. Applications are .still coming in, at a tale of about oOOOO a month" We have outgrown fhe expaniion plans we made a year ago, even before' new equipment we ordered could all be delivered. That means new and bigger plans to enlarge telephone exchanges. They include: more sections of switchboard . . • more cable and copper wire, more con- duit . . . more poles, more trucks, more tools . . . more new buildings and additions. We need more and then still more of most of the thousands of things used to give telephone service. They take time lo make and they must fit in with present equipment. We'll have the trained men ready to install the new .equipment ns it arrives, construction crews ready to string wire and place cable, splicers to conned lens of thousands of wires, installers lo put in telephones. It's the largest construction program the telephone company lins ever undertaken, and it's marked HUSH. We want lo calch up with the demand for service and then gel ahead foster with the program lo provide the most adequate aud modern telephone service ever known, SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY VOLUNTEERS ARE SELECTED out <* «y«nr 100 VOLUWIWIK vino 20.24^ IHliillHI • ^»>° pass the mental tests J n.36% mw- • • • f * u to pass the physical K •< -± Mto? iftii . . . fail for moral or sub-standard 6.42/p -m\ • • administrative reasons % TOTALS'-' ; - --.,'. f 38 02% -IMMilMHHMMH ' - -. - • • M to P«M ; mi«»IHI»»»«"«" M " MMI ° re 0<eePfe<1 (Based on «gur~ *or January, 1947; wh.n 3S,47C m en enlisted ond 17O2 emended their enl.stment*.) Wfould it surprise you to know that only about 60 out of every 100 volunteers for the new Regular Army can measure up to today's requirements for a soldier? Only the lop G07o of American youth—mentally, morally and physically—can pass the rigid tests. There are reasons for this which your Army wants you lo know: 1| The men we send oversea* must represent you to ' millions of people who are struggling towards democracy. They must be typical of our best. n The truly modern Army requires a far higher type ™ of soldier than ever before. The wide use of scientific materiel and the broad program of research necessitate a superior man. Your Army must lead Ihe world in the caliber of its men if it is to provide , adequate defense in the atomic age. These are reasons why Army enlistment standards today are higher than ever before—why vour new Regular Army, although comparatively small in size — is performing its world-wide duties well. In Japan, for excL-npfe, ours it tfw tmallfft occupation force per ccpila in world history — yet rn«r* it no record of greater achievement in such a sfiorl cpac* of timt. * If you can measure up to these standards, you will find enlistment in the new Regular Army n good career. You will live and work with friends whom you will value always. You will have opportunity for travel and high adventure, nncl a chance to qualify for Officer Candidate Schools nncl Technical Schools. Above all, you will have the deep satisfaction of doing an important job for your country. Ask at any U. S.
