Hence, during the war period we .were able to give service to a rapidly increasing list of subscribers, although we had little , priority consideration as a necessary industry and were compelled by government restriction to abandon our normal programme of advance construction. v, When the war ended, however, these reserve facilities ; had been almost wholly pre-empted by the growing demand., Our, usual reserve of central offices switchboards, power plants,': con duits, cables, manholes, pole lines no longer existed.
