MISS GRACE MOORE
Telephone operators’ voices, she
says, contribute to the pleasantness
of our everyday world.
Grace Moore, popular star of
opera, radio, and screen, paid tribute
to American telephone operators re*
cently when she said:
“There’s music in the speaking
as well as the singing voice, and it
is only after a long sojourn in for
eign countries that one can appre
ciate the music of the well modulated
voices of our American telephone
operators. Time was, years and years
ago, when, particularly in our
smaller communities, the voices
which asked us: ’Number, please?*
were not always so well trained in
sound qualities, and occasionally
they were shrill and high-pitched.
But today we have become so used
to the quiet, courteous tones of the
telephone operators who serve us
that we are apt to overlook the great
contribution they make to the pleas
antness of our everyday world
which, conversationally, is so often
telephonic.**
