When sudden and heavy demands for service arise, however, the vacant " positions," as they are called, are at once r.lled by reserve operators so that calls can be bandied on a " no-delay " basis, without interruption of service or inconvenience to subscribers. PromptTelephone Service Under All Conditions TO INSURE rapid telephone communication in New York City at all times, we must be prepared to handle the fluctuating volume of traffic that is created by varying conditions. We must be prepared for the unexpected as wctl as for the usual. Each day we have our busy hours and our slack hours. For instance, in one of our exchanges we handle nearly 17,000 calls between 10.00 A.M. and 11.00 A.M. In the same exchange we handle 5,000 calls between ,5.00 P. M. and 6.00 P. M. To meet these expected fluctuations is part of our daily work. But we must be prepared also to meet unusual conditions and emergencies. Unexpected storms, large fires or accidents, extremely hot or cold days, make sudden and heavy demands upon the system. Yet, in such cases, so efficiently is the service rendered, that there is practically no delay. The service is so prompt under all conditions, that the subscriber never realizes how heavy may be the demands upon the service. On the day before last Christmas a very heavy snowstorm came most unexpectedly. Telephone calls in the city increased 50 or from 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 in one day, yet we furnished service practically without delay, and made it possible for telephone users all over the city to avoid personal trips through sleet and snow in carry ing on their social and business affairs. By arranging our operating loads', by keeping reserve apparatus in readiness and a reserve force within call, we meet all emergencies promptly and efficiently. It it all in our plan of giving to New York City tt The Best Telephone Service in the World. ft NEW YORK TELEPHONE COMPANY Every Bell Telephone is a Long Distance Telephone,
