If the people of Chicago will follow Mr. Stroud's articles which he Is
preparing for The Day Boqk they will know more about telephone service
than they ever dreamed of. And it is just as interesting and important to
those who cannot afford 'phones at present rates as it is to those who
already have 'phones; for if Mr. Stroud's argument is correct, an automatic
telephone system operated and owned by the city would make it easily pos
sible for EVERY CITIZEN TO HAVE A TELEPHONE IN His HOME.
Mr. Stroud will also show people who now have telephone service just
what is coming to them if they sit idly by while the big Bell 'phone trust
is permitted to gobble up the automatic plant and throw it on the junk pile.
The Day Book will begin publication of Mr. Stroud's telephone talks on
next Tuesday, as there will be no issue of The Day Book on Labor Day.
Those who watch careful his argument will learn things about the tele
phone business they never dreamed of.
