COLD UP THERE! Broken Phone Cables Must Be Repaired, Come Blizzard or Rain tt may be *o cold your car won't start. . .so cold the ice cracks. . .so cold it seems like it's never been colder. . .and yet the telephone repairmen go right on with their work. They aren't supermen, immune to cold and wind, but they battle the cold with warm clothing and a tent rig that shelters them high in the air where the phone lines ure. The canvas shelter takes about :io minutes to rig, Don Jensen, oable foreman for Northwestern Bell's Austin exchange, explained, and it keeps the cable splicers out of the wind, rain and snow. In winter, a propane gas heater keeps the temperature at the top, where the splicers work barehanded, a comfortable and workable 50 degrees. Gets Shelter Ready When he arrives on the job, cable splicer Don Provo sets his ladder against the steel cable messenger, from which the telephone cable is" suspended. He climbs up and places two lightweight bows over the messenger, guying them to a nearby post and the messenger. Then he stretches the canvas over the bows and his shelter is almost ready. He then places the g"as tank on the ground and suspends the heater from the messenger, near the section to be spliced. Depending on the length of time required for the job, Provo then selects a platform.'For quick jobs, he uses one that hooks to the ladder and on bigger jobs, he hoists •a ZVs by 4-foot rigid platform into position. With the large platform forming a floor, the tent shelter is almost weather tight, Jensen said, but there is plenty of ventilation. It .still gets cold around the feet, but it is warm; around the face and hands. Shelter Against Rain The fire-resistant canvas shelter is used in the summer too when it Tains. Moisture is the enemy of telephone connections. The men who work in the manholes have the easier job in winter. These compact spaces are easy to heat and aren't subject to buffeting in the wind. In the winter, the men place a canvas over the manhole and connect a heater to their air blower, which then heats the fresh air going into the manhole. They have an electric generator which sup- plys power for lights and for the blower and heater. Like the mailmen, the telephone men brave wind, rain, hail and snow to keep messages going through. Group Studies Revisions in City Charter Possible revisions in Austin's city charter were considered Monday night at the City Charter Commission's January session. The commission decided to have all proposed revisions in final shape for consideration at the March 2 meeting and then adjourn until the semi-annual meeting in July. The changes under consideration will bring the charter into conformance with state statues affecting Austin and correct some outmoded provisions. When the changes are approved by the commission, they will be presented to the City Council. It Don Provo carries a ladder platform to stand on in the shelter. The completed tent shelter, high in the air. 1.3 Million Mrs. Bergene More Eligible for Security Benefits under old - age, sur- Will Attend We |f are vivors or disability insurance pay-; Mrs. Oscar Bergene, Adams will . - --.„ — ments under Social Security in-!attend Wednesday and Thursday is expected that because of the creased $095 million a month dur-' the Midwestern Area Rehabilitating necessary to prepare the ing 1958 wjth 13 im dd ,. j lion and Child Welfare Conferences proposed amendments, the ehang- ~ e» will not be submitted at an election until next Fall.
