Commissioner has said about her.
y a few of them are aware that he
had disserted and analyzed them in a
report 20o or 300 pages long for the
instruction of the United States Senate,
: ut these few have served notice that
they will insist on seeing in cold type
just what he has found out about them.
The commissioner has left little for
the hello girl to find out about her

of the Washington telephone girls who

Complaints from hello girls that they
had to walk up too many flights of
stairs to their work was chiefly respon
sible for starting the Commissioner on
his investigation. He finds that the
telephone girls as a whole have no
ground for complaint on this score. He
nails them right down on this proposi
tion, giving the exact number that
have to climb stairs and the actual ef
fort that is expended. Says the Com
Of the seventy-three exchanges re
ported upon by the agents of the bu
reau it was found that thirty-three,
which were located above the first
floor, were not provided with elevators.
Of these exchanges fifteen were loearej
on the second floor, requiring the
climbing of one flight of stairs; ten
on the third floor, requiring tne climb
ing of three flights of stairs. The max
imum number of operators affected by
such lack of elevators, therefore, being
required to climb one flight of stairs
was 60; those required to climb two
flights of stairs 108, while 75 found it
necessary to climb three flights or
The Commissioner finds that there is
no use of short girls trying to become
telephone operators.
"None of the companies employ
short girls; they want girls that can
reach," he said. "The girl \\ho is un
der five feet hasn't any show."
The Commissioner finds that very
few of the companies take girls with
out first, subjecting them to a physi
cal examination. In some cities the
girls object to this, but these will be
surprised to learn that they were ex
amined without knowing it.
"In one city where the girls inter
viewed said that no physical examina
tion or test had been made," says the
Commissioner, "it was ascertained that
the applicants are interviewed by a wo
man whose exact height is known, and
in talking to the applicants can by
comparing the level of the pyes with

The girls of many exchanges get
their luncheons right in the omcanv'
office. "Hygienic luncheons," the com
panies call them, and they say that
these luncheons prevent the

port will be qualified to talk telephone
with the oldest hello girl in existence.
, "Peak of the load," "side reach," "up

only a few of the expressions that go
to make up the telephone girl's bus;

j Commissioner finds also that
man y 0 f the companies, especially the
New York company. "Is engaged in a
system of welfare work among its em
ployes." They have libraries and par
lors where the girls may lounge dur
ing the rest hours; also boat ride ex
cursions, theatre parties and art muse
um parties under the supervision of a
competent teacher.
This uplift feature of the report,
particularly the theatre party sugges
tion, has made a hit with the telephone
girls in this city, and the companies
that haven't got onto this wrinkle yet
are sure to be informed of it.
Some of the hello girls also may
want to know of their employers why
they aren't furnished with roof gardens
for lounging places. The Commission
er finds that some companies have such
gardens and he recommends that more
of them be established. The Commis
sioner hands out this compliment to
the girls: "The loyalty and esprit de
corps among telephone girls is greater
.than i-n any other industry in the <
country." !

signal lights glow simultaneously and \
there is a clicking sound in the oper
ator's ear every time the receiver is
moved up and down. With all this
confusion in front of her the hello giil
has to contend too with a supervisor
who stands behind her and calls out
the numbers to ofher operators when
she falls behind in her work. She is in
fear also of the monitor cutting in at
any minute and reprimanding her.
Under the rules of the companies she
is allowed to say only "Number,
please," no matter how much she is
abused. When the peevish party be

The Commissioner adds that if the
people who put off their morning tele

telephoning until 5 would only remem
ber that these are the heaviest hours
of the day, the "peaks of the load,"
they would get better service and make
