There arc thirteen army canrs in .the south equal in size to
the average city, and in each one we have installed a complete
telephone system so that the army officials may have adequate
telephone communication, both, local and lorn distance.
This was a big job given to us without time for preparation
or for the preliminaries that such undertakings usually require.
The nation was at war; the Bell system had proffered all its re
sources, and when the camps were located we were there with
men and material.
We did only our duty, but it is a matter of pride that
we were able to gather material and equipment from the four
corners of the country and have service waiting for the govern
ment when officials were ready for it.
Such a gigantic task could not be accomplished without sac-,
rifice, and while as an organization and as individuals we were
willing to go the limit, the necessity now arises for the public to
also participate in the sacrifice.
Today we find the calling rate from commercial telephones
throughout our territory above any average ever before experi
enced or anticipated, while it is not within our ability to afford
the prompt and certain relief that could be effected in ordinary
There is not an army camp Tiere, but the drain upon the
available supply of material and the activity due to war condi
tions, is reflected in the demands upon our service here.
We cannot secure equipment with which to enlarge our
switchboards, and only the minimum amount. of material is avail
able for increasing the number of our long distance circuits.
Added to this is (lie imperative duty of serving the govern
ment first with a service which in itself is growing beyond all an
ticipated proportions.
We can say frankly that there is every likelihood , that your
local telephone service will be slower than you ordinarily exper
ience and that your long distance service will be subject to de
lays never before experienced.
This is one of the sacrifices of war which the individual
American is called upon to bear.
We want you to know, however, that we are doing all that
is humanly possible and all that money and science can do, to
maintain our service at the high standard for which the Bell sys
tem is world famous.
When you encounter delays and when your service docs not
measure up to your part experience, we hope you will bear this
in mind and give us your cheerful and patient co-operation.

r.quipmunt lnd Sftff of Skilled Men
After three years of warfare the
total number of airplanes able to
take the air ut any one time on cith-
r side of the western front has not
been over 2.00. Each plane in the
;r requires a force of 4C men, two
replacement piano 1 on fib "fo-ind
and one training plane for every pi
lot who eventually reaches the front
v ith an extra engine for ct'.eh p'me
The life. of a plane is not more
than two months, and tho engine
must be overhauled after each 75
hours. Now that American iwttir
Varies are poinp overseas, the ereal
rirohlem is to socure the thous md?
of fkilled mechanics, endncnen
motor renair men, wood and reta'
workers needel to keen the pb ine-
i'n perfect condition. This emrireer
inir and mechanical force at the air-1-omes,
the flyinpr fields, and renair
depots, both here and behind the
i;nes in France, is a vital lndus-ria-
link in the chain to air Runremr.ev.
Parched cornmeal Is the feature ofr
these excellent wheatless biscuits.
First, the cornmeal one-half a cup
is put in n shallow pun placed in the
oven and stirred frequently until It
is a delicate brown. The other tngre'
clients are a twispoon of salt, n.cup
of peanut butter and one And a half
cups of water. Mix the peanut but

this mixture Is hot stir in the meal
which should also he hot. Beat thor
oughly. The dough should be of such
consistency that It can be dropped
from a spoon. Bake in small cakes
1n an ungrensed pun. This makes 10
biscuits, each of which contains one-
sixth of an ounce of protein.
