Always at her post to protect life and property, there are coundess instances of her steadfastness in emergency. But it takes day-by-day devotion to the ordinary task to make Che heroine in times of stress. In peace or war 100,000 Bell Telephone operators "man" the country's switchboards, rendering a faithful and honorable service. More than 1Z,000 specially trained operators are meeting the Government needs today.
