PEORIA, IlLINOIS Here's the answer forBlytheville... We connected more than 750 new telephones in the past year - that's a rate of over 60 a month. We're adding new equipment to the telephone system in record volumes and we are planning an addition to the telephone building to make more room for still more equipment. We're spending a lot of money—more than $225,000 gross for telephone expansion here in Blytheville. More Equipment We used up the last inch of space in the telephone building last fall with the installation of dial equipment providing switching facilities for 200 new telephones. We're Building Before the dial equipment additions planned for later in 1948 can be made, the telephone building must be made larger. We expect to Itart work on a twO:Story addition early this spring. When construction is complete, dial equipment for almost 500 new telephones will b« installed. More Cable Needed But telephones and switchboards aren't any Use unless they are "tied together," and in many parts of town there isn't enough cable • nd wire leading into the centra] oHice. There ls % still an acute shortage of lead- covered cable, and although millions of inductor feet of cable are on order for this year, there won't be enough to provide telephone! for all those waiting. However, you can be sure the cable we get will be put into service as quickly as possibl* after it is delivered. Party Linci Help The hundreds of people who have telephones now—and will get them thi« year—would have had to wait longer if we had not been able to make wide use of party lines. Party lines make it possible for <is to serve temporarily the greatest number of people with our present equipment. Naturally, we're aiming for the day when w« can furnish straight-line service to everyone who wants it. But we will need still greater quantities of switching equipment, cable and wire. That's what it takes. It isn't g simple job, you see. It can't be done in hzite, but it's being done as swiftly at complexity allows. Telephone people are hard at work supplying service and extending it. They appreciate your patience and understanding.. P. J.
