'A check of House committee members indicated that the most substantial support wa s behind a proposal Ural would permit voluntary closed shop agreements but. would make it very difficult lor a union to sc'ourc such a. contr.ict by a strike. This proposal would declare the closed shop an "Improper" labor objective. Unions which went on strike for such a contract would lose their Wagner Act privileges and employers would be free to fight them by all legal means.

Main OUR 1947 RURAL PROGRAM 54,000 There's lots doing these days in Southwestern Bell's rural territory. We plan to connect 5-1,000 telephones ' in rural areas this year, and construction work is moving ahead. The job of bringing good telephone service to thousands of farms in our 700 exchanges is a big undertaking. It begins with a survey of each exchange to determine the kind and amount of construction required. Then farmers are interviewed, detailed plans drawn up, materials ordered, and when they arrive, the lines built and telephones installed. The purpose of this planning, organizing, and building is dependable, up-to-date rural telephone service. It's the kind of telephone service American farmers need, and it's the kind of telephone service we plan to make available, sooner or later, to every farmer in our territory who wants it.
