Company swindle of 1913 have appcared fiom a Federal building \.tult. Last year, the people of Fayette County made 23,400,000 Bell telephone calls! Some of these were .just neighborly calls to the folks across the street.. Some were emergency calls where seconds counted. Other calls carried messages of friendship or business across the continent. What some of these calls were worth, no man can say. You can't put a price on minutes saved when you need a doctor quickly. Sometimes the sound of a. certain voice can bring more happiness than words cm express. And who can say how many smiles begin with the ring of a bell? It is easy sometimes to count the hours or miles or dollars saved by a telephone call. But the telephone does more than that. It lifts the load of worry and brings new hope. It can cheer the lonely" and keep old friendships alive! We in the telephone business never forget that behind every telephone number there are people-people who depend on us for swift, accurate, reliable service. In 1939, as in the past, we shall keep that service as courteous, as friendly and as helpful as we can make it. Mutual understanding and cooperation between the people o! this company and the people we serve are essential to the high quaJity and low cost of your telephone service. The 13,700 Bell telephones in Faycetc County are served by an organisation of 185 local men and women. They have aa average of 12 years' experience in telephone ·work. Some of them have been in this business more than 30 vcar. Led by men and women who have learned and earned their jobs by serving in the ranks, these people have an annual payroll of about $230,000. Telephones and switchboards make up only a part of the complex telephone system. This company has aa investment of more thuu $3,300,000 in telephone plant in Fayctte County. More than 600 drivers of Bell cars and trucks in Pennsylvania have 1OO,OOO miles or more of safe driving to their credit. There arc 20 Bell Telephone motor vehicles in operation in Taycttc County. It takes money to buitd! a telephone plane and to keep it growing. Nearly three-quarters of a million people have invested part of their savings in Belt System securities. Right here in Fayctte County there arc some 450 people who own stock of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company. And some 12,000 Pcnos}lvanians own Cell Telephone bonds.
