LOUIS CHERRY Reprrientlcg New York Life Insurance Co. e, Ark. LU keep the telo For every single hour of the working day lost year we were able to offer telephone service to 289 people who had ordered Ir in the five itates w. serve. And every hour 288 mor« persons ordered telephones! That's why the telephone waiting list at Ihe start of 1947—235,460 names long- is only a little shorter than a year ago. But it isn't the same list it was a year back, by any means. Most names on it, by far, are new ones. That's because we connect telephones in proper turn just as fast as equipment becomes available in a particular part of town. And the equipment we have—switchboards and cable and all the ranks of humming machinery in a telephone central office—is bearing up under an extra load much heavier than we engineered it wai«in 9 liit 8on 9 for. Part of this load has been for new telephones. Part has been caused by greater use of all telephones. The result: More people getting more service than ever before. And it's good service most of the time in most places. In 1946 we were busier than we'd ever been before. In 1947 we'll be doing still more, working all day and every day. A lot depends on a steady flow of equipment and materials, of course. We have the experience and the people to sec the job through. As fast as we get the equipment—and this year we'll spend $95 million for it, compared to last year's $67 million—we'll put it in and connect telephones to it. That's why we think 1947 will top 5946 in telephone work. And that means more telephones ringing in the homes of more pcouJe now doing without, and a service growing better than before. 8.
