According to orders from central headquarters the local managers have been directed to enter upon a:i educational campaign by -advertising and otherwise to bring telephone patrons to an. appreciation of the necessity of cutting out all calls that are not btnctly in the line of telephone service, and "Wfcat is tbe Lhne, please?" has become to be rated as the chief offender m this class. The need for this form of conservation oC time and labor on part of central operators is explained by the company through E. F Patterson, local manager, as follows: "When a subscriber lifts bis tele- phono receiver and askes: ""Vniat. is the time, please?" the same service en. the part of the operator, the same length of time and an equal use o:" telephone equipment generally are necessary as are required to complete an ordinary telephone call. "In every telephone central office is a switchboard with a cerLam number of operators' positions, and at each, position is an opera-tor with a certain number of subscribers' lines terminating before her. These Ea- cilitics are now taxed to their utmost and, ab a considerable percejS^e of the caJ Is are for the time of the day, subscribers will see the reasonableness of this request, and appreciate that the elimination o£ such caUs would permit of a so-called reassignment or redistribution of both operators' service and telephone equipment and result m Lhe telephone company being able to care for the present aonormal demands and the even greater demands that are expected in the future." In a notice to employes, the company states that, by reason of the tremendous war activities, it has before it one of the biggest tasks in telephone history--a task which it, as a servant of the individual, the community and the entire nat.on, must successfully shoulder. Ja urging an understanding of the problem and a knowledge of the reasons for the conservation of telephone service, this statement says, in part: ' The unprecedented activity in business today has brought about tremendously increased volumes of ifM,- phone calling and demands for tele phone service. Our switchboards, 01 operators, are working to capacity.
