In search for a man reported by neighbors as missing for days and probably dead, trlea to get Into his house, but the doors and windows were locked. After considerable noise and exertion, they heard a voice from within: "What are you doing out there? You're making enough noise to wake up the dead." REPORT TO TELEPHONE USERS Our jot) in 1944 was twofold: "to do everything we could to keep a steady Stream of communications equipment' flowing to the armj^'and njivy— as much, as they needed—ant-l, at the same time, Jo maintain quality of service as high as possible for the folkii here at home^ The Bell System did keep the armed fcirces supplied -r tele- - " phone factories \vcrked jalrnost 100 per cent on war orders. At home then; were unavoidable delays on some long distance calls, but local service, on the whole, was good. Here in the Southv?est telephone facilities were stretched to the limit. A total of 260,000 persons a«ked for service and, ^ot it. Some 233,000 1 of these took the places of customers who ordered their telephones disconnected. Telephone people squeezed in the additional 27,000 by hard work and ingenuity. Never- thekss, about,185,000 applicants still are on t^e waiting lists because there just isn't efnough equipment to go around. For the new year, the telephone company's p.lans hinge uf>on the demands of \i'ar, of course. But ctirtain things will be c^one, you may be silrc. S'O U T H W E S T E R N BELL We shall continue to provide service for those who are waiting just as rapidly as we can. However, in 1945, as in 1944, war demands will be met first and on the average it will b? a considerable time before a person may apply for service and' get it without delay. Those, employees who are released from the armed services will be welcomed back, and a hearty welcome it will be. There will be a lot of work for them, too. We'll begin to clear the decks for the big telephone job that will come after the war—to plan how improved devices from Bell Telephone Laboratories, and materials and equipment from Western "Electric factories will be put to work for you. ^ That's the balance sheet of what's done and what's to do. Of course, the volume of our business has been greater than ever before, but so are our operating expenses. In fact, our rate of earnings on the telephone property during these peak w?r years has been less than during the worst years of the depression. There have been no wai*profits for the telephone company, which is exactly as it should be. TELEPHONE COMPANY "Go back and have 'em put a curve on tlie road jnap!" after a week's visit here with her niece, Mrs. R, A. Flhney and family.
