I Always Guarding Your Telephone
DAY IN AND DAY OUT,
telephone employees are in
specting and testing equipment
and looking for conditions that
may cause trouble with your tel
ephone. That’s one reason tele
phones are so seldom reported
"out of order” nowadays—only
once every two years, on the
average. Then alert repairmen
have them back in service usu
ally in less than 2 hours . . .
Keeping your telephone always
ready to deliver fast, dependable
service is a necessary and ex
pensive part of Southern Bell’s
service to its customers.

A Store Without a Telephone?
Mississippi families can reach
more stores, more shops, more
services of every kind today, for
so many of the approximately
131,000 new telephones we’ve in
stalled in the state since 1945
are in business establishments.
UVi Million Dollars This
Yoar for Now Telephonos
^ in Mississippi
Keeping pace with Mississippi’s
demands for new telephones is a
big job, but we’ve been making
progress ... In the past 7 year*
we have more than doubled the
total number of telephone* in the
state ... at a cost of approx
imately 72 million dollars ... and
we’re still working hard at it.
What’s a Telephone Worth?
Sometime* one call may be
worth more than the coat of a
year1* telephone service ... and
service becomes more valuable a*
additional telephones are installed
in your community.
