Avoid Having Your Telephone Moved
Unless it is Absolutely Necessary
DuRING AN AVERAGE MONTH we move approximately
13,000 telephones from one point to another within a building
or from one point to another within a room.
One thousand, one hundred and fifty-three men
of our Plant Department, formerly engaged in installing and
moving telephones and work incidental thereto, are now in the
military service of our country and others arc constantly being
called to the colors.
Under THESE CONDITIONS the employees who must re
main nt their posts are rendering a patriotic service of great im
portance in handling the increasing demands for war-time service.
It IS IMPERATIVE, therefore, during the period of the war,
that all unnecessary moving of telephones from one point to an
other within buildings or within offices, be avoided.
Before YCU REQUEST that your telephone be moved, will
you please consider whether it cannot be left in its present loca
tion without material inconvenience to you.
"You CAN HELP to conserve labor for the all-important work
of furnishing telephone service for the Government and essen
tial war industries, if you will t

THE NEW YORK WORLD has its own

Jt docs not depend for its news upon services
purchased from London newspapers. It has
such services, however, to supplement the
work of its own men. Durin" the last ten
weeks THE WORLD has received far more
cabled news concerning the American troops
in France from its correspondents, Lincoln

THE WORLD has the exclusive American

Col. Repington's cables to THE WORLD
during the past few week have been unquestion
ably the most valuable and authoritative con
tributions regarding the great German offensive
received in America Col. Repington's analyses
of the general situation in Europe are unap
proachable. THE WORLD is the only ' newspaper in
America or in the world, for that matter
which has succeeded in reaching into Germany
since the United States entered the war and
learning the actual, present-day conditions with
in that Empire. As a lesu'lt of this effort,
. requiring months of time and thousands of
dollars, THE WORLD has recently given to
its readers a series of twentj remarkable articles
from Cyrij Brown, famed as a war correspond
ent in Europe, which revealed every phase
uf Germany's condition to-day. Mr. Brown
will soon be heard from again, through THE

THE WORLD is the only newspaper in
America which has had its own correspondent
in Russia since the revolution began. Arno
Dosch-Flcurot has witnessed the wiiolc Russian
drama from its very beginning. His cabled
account of the overthrow of the Czar and the
birth of the revolution was the only narrative
cabled direct to any newspaper in America.
Since that time THE WORLD'S direct scrvi:c
from Russia has been unequalled. Of Mr.
