Phone 519 There's^ BIG demand for telephone service in Blytheville In the last two years we have installed 80 new telephones a month in Blytheville l — more than 1,900 telephones in all. But 570 people are still waiting for service. As fast as we take names from the top of the list, new ones are added at the bottom. At present, about 100 more people apply every month. It's the greatest telephone demand in history. Estimating the gross cost 01 our expan- sion program, we're spending $71,000 to extend and improve service here. Our first goal is to give everyone some kind of telephone service. Then we can turn to the task of providing the type of service everyone wants. If you have asked us for service and we haven't served you yet, the reason is simply that the demand is still too big to meet all at once. We sincerely regret keeping anyone waiting for telephone service. P. J. POE, Manner SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY
