' 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 busi- · ness 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 can 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 arid 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 undemt antlin g and cooperation between the people of this company and fhe people we serve are essential to d I owf cost ot your telephone terrice.

Telephones and'switchboards make up only a part of the complex telephone system. This company has an investment of more than 43,300,000 in telephone plant in Fnycttc County.
