By assigning everyone available to the work of restoration, we were able to double our normal repair forces to cope with damage which, though widespread and severe, was fortunately less devastating than the hurr.i- cane of 1938. Also, we were aided by subsequent good weather and the prompt clearance of roads and highways. s If yours is one of the few telephones which may not yet be in working order, please call this to our attention immediately. Arrangements are being made for appropriate adjustments in subscribers' accounts which vviJl be fully expained on future bills. To the telephone using public we want to express hearty thanks for your patience and understanding so generously given.
