HUXTABLE Firestone Store Figueroa Ballroom LIVERMORE, IOWA DING ELLIS., AUGUST 30 DEACONS OF THE HHYTHM, ! LABOR DAY, SEPT 3 A REPORT fo You Who Are Waiting for TELEPHONES •to- Many persons are asking: "Can we now expect to have telephones installed soon?" Regretfully, we have to ans\yer: "Just as soon as humanly possible . . . but it will be quite a while before everyone on the waiting list can get a telephone." Those of you who have had your applications in for the longest period will, of course, be the first to get telephones, as instruments and facilities become available, and for some of you that may not be very long. Telephone factories, which during the past several years have been producing almost exclusively for war, are being converted to meet the tremendous civilian telephone needs which have accumulated. Gradually, and with increasing speed, new telephone service will be provided. Yet in spite of everything, the complete job will take time. Switchboards, wire, cable, and telephone instruments will be produced as rapidly as possible. And installation work will be rushed to the limit. Much telephone equipment is complex and the task of manufacturing and installing it is time-consuming. Therefore, a considerable period will be required to serve all who are waiting. We're mighty sorry that we cannot set any definite date for everyone's new telephone. For your patience and understanding, our warmest thanks.
