During the past few years this Company and the other companies of the Bell System have made tremendous additions to their plant, equipment and organization to handle the increased use of telephone service; yet over many long distance routes and in many exchanges there is a shortage of facilities. In normal times we would build more lines but now copper and other critical metals are needed for ships and shells and planes and other weapons of war. You Can Help Conserve Critical War Materials and Keep the Lines Open lor War Calls Long distance lines to Washington, D. C., the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coast areas and other centers of military activity are very busy with war callo. If it is really necessary to make a call over these lines, won't you please try to avoid the busiest hours which are on week days between 9 and 12 in the forenoon, 2 and 5 in the afternoon and 7 and 9 in the evening? It also will help if you can make fewer local calls and keep each call as brief as possible. If you share a party line, please be considerate of the other fellow. In war-time, many more people have to use party-line service. Everything must be subordinated fp winning, the war and the Bell System is dedicated to that task.
