Thirty-three thousand poles, 8,000 miles of wire, 16,000 new telephones on farms! Over four times our best previous year's record! And that docs not include nearly 10,000 other telephones installed in rural areas. Shortages of material kept us from doing more. As the rural construction program moves into 1947, we look forward to an even better record. We are going to try to make it possible, eventually, for every farmer in every one of the Southwestern Bell's ^00 exchanges to have a telephone if he wants one.
