We'll do the best we can, but we know that a lot of folks who place calls then will run into disappointments. If, despite this, you wish to talk home by long distance, please plan to make your call before Mother's Day if possible. And please make your call reasonably brief—not more than five minutes—so that as many others as possible may talk to their mothers, too. We will do everything we can to get calls through. But—especially when vital metals are needed for war —the telephone system cannot be expanded to handle floods of greeting calls on top of the exceptionally heavy business growing out of the war. C 3n shorter lines—up to about a hundred miles away I —to town* that are not military or war manufactur- j ng renters—service will be about as nsiwl. But all I 'main lint" routes will be jammed.
