TIME OFTEN ASKED BY SUBSCRIBERS School Children Call Up to Find Out What is Santa Claus Number. The individual who comes nearer to the public than any other in the busi ness of giving telephone service is the operator who answers central. She is the one who handles your calls and in order to get anyone you must first tell her what you desire. And of these girls that one that the average sub- 'ecrlbeT Is test acquainted, with is No. -25." It is safe to say that there is probably no subscriber in the State who has not at some time or other .come in contact with . this ; invisible bureau of information. In the New Haven .' Exchange the demand on this part or the operating force has become so great that during the day four girls are kept busy an swering the queries of subscribers. Four at two desksiset part from the switchboard, these operators are as busy as any of the glrU in the oper ating room. In front of each girl Is .an electric clock, a tide table, the weather report and an up to the min ute telephone directory. Back of 'her Is the valuable card index from 'which she obtains the various kinds of information that she is called upon to Impart. The importance of the position these girls occupy, the care that has to be taken In their selection and the 'work that they are called upon to do, their task master the telephone using public, have little, or no idea. The extent to which many persons have come to rely upon, No. 25, they have no true realization and yet slowly but urely these girls have worked their way into the lives of the telephone us ers until it is safe to say that were they removed, and the character and scope of the Information which they impart lessened, there would be a sreneral cry of protest rrom all over the State. " In view of these facts a record has been kept by the Southern New Eng land Telephone company in this city. el-lowing the number of times that No 25 is called up during day for cer tain bits of Information. Among these fire the time, weather, ttde and loca- tlon of fires. Because of the fact that the subject ranks first by reason of the number of requests for it, comes the time of day. A man's clock has stopped, his watch has run down, two time pieces In his home do mot agree, so he does the most naUfral thing in the world calls up for "25" and asks for the time of day. The following table will show the number of calls for the time that were record ed by the operators at "25" during . one day in this city: Between midnight and noon the calls were: 12 o'clock to 1, two calls; 1 to 2, two calls; 2 to 3, one call; 3 to ;4, one call; 4 to 5, one call; 5 to 6, even calls; 6 to 7, nine calls; 7 to 8, !' twenty-seven calls; 8 to 9, thirty-three calls; 9 to 10, seventeen calls; 10 to 11, twenty-two calls; 11 to 12, thirty eight calls. From noon to midnight calls came In as follows: 1 o'clock to 2, seven teen; 2 to 3, twenty-four; 3 to 4, thirteen; 4 to 6, fourteen; 5 to 6, twenty-six; 6 to 7, twenty; 7 to 8, ten; 8 to 9, six; 9 to 10, eleven; 10 to 11, nineteen; 11 to 12, six. In other words between 7 o'clock In the morning and 6 at night the four firls at No. 25, told the time of day !to 261' people. This means a request girl answered such a request about ev ery nine minutes. This in itself may not seem to be very much but It must be home In mind that this Is not the only work that Is being done by the Information operators. In addition to this she Is answering about 10 cahs a day for the weather. And half that number of calls for the tide during the sum er months. While No. 25 Is often called upon to give out information regarding fires the demand on her for this Information Is cut down by the new system of giving it out to the subscribers regarding It direct from the switchboard. The duties of No. 25 by no means stop here however. She is supposed to receive complaints of any nature and notices of a line in trouble or out of order. Then come the count less requests for numbers that have been changed or which are not in the directory. It is' an interesting fact that of those who call In for num bers, the girl Is able to find approxi mately fifty per cent, in the telephone directory which Is Isued for the sub scribers use. It Is easier to ask 25 than to look it up and possibly the calling party may be in the dark or unable to read. , In addition to these matters there are the requests- that Come In from children whose parents have telfej phones. Had the day on which , the above record was taken been a school day, it would have been considerably larger. These lltle friends of "25" keep her busy between 8 and 9 o'clock giving .the time, many of them proba bly being unable to read the clock. A stormy day Is also a gala one for the little ones who put In their requests for information, as to one session and at Christmas time many of them call up to Inquire as to whether Santa Claus has a telephone. Thus it may be seen that No. 25 Is a very busy person and also that the Telephone company is doing more for its patrons than merely furnishing them with service for which subscrib ers' pay. It has in addition to this, an organized and effectlvs bureau of Information of which all sorts of In formation is requested. Occasionally a subscriber Is liable to lose his tem per when he has to wait for "25." He would hardly do this were he aware of the duties that face her and the ex tensive use that is made of these operators by the public. Charles E. KnoeppcJ. The funeral of nine-year-old Charles E.
