TO transform a wilderness in a few short
weeks into a modern army camp to accom
modate 40,000 men is an undertaking to
test American ingenuity end energy.
At the various training or mobilization camps this company
has been called upon to do its part by providing the neces?
sary telephone service, and has thus contributed to the suc?
cess that has been won in American camp building.
In some cases minor installations, although involvingthc string
ing of thousands of feet of wire, have been made almost over
night. In other plaees complete telephone systems with pole
lines, cables, terminal boxes, central offices with operatofs,
public telcphones with booths, and telephoncs enough to servc
camp cities of thousands of inhabitants, have been installcd and
ready for service within a few days after idvlce was received
that service would be required.
There was no hesitation, no "red tape," no dclay. In spite of
the serious conditions in the market for raw materials needed in
the telephone business, this company went ahead promptly and
supplicd whatever service the Government required.
Such inataUattoaa tvpify the gttftuie of this company to
tpaie neither effort nor expenae to proride any
necessary telephone service.
