Extension nnd improvement of rural service was inlcmiplcd by the war, but plans lo resume il went right ahead. Surveys were made, maps drawn, thousands of farmers asked what kind of rural service they liked best. The result is a 14-millton-' dollar postwar program for improving and extending service lo rural areas in the Southwest. Now the building job is under way np,nin. Our goal by Ihe end of the year is to have -10,000 new rural telephones in service. Within the next five years we expect to add 165,000. There is still much to be done, and it will be some time before everyone has service who wants it. But we are well on our way.
