Sold only in Checkerboard bags by Sold by Cash Grocery Company, Onion City, Tenn, km After-The-War Problems Affect Telephone Service WHILE the nation was under the stress in cident to winning the war, we asked our subscribers and the public to be patient with the telephone service and to lsnit its use as much as practicable in order that we might handle the urgent business of the nation efficiently. Now that the armistice has been signed and hostilities have ceased, we are confronted with problems of the reconstruction period, which are equally as serious and which will require time and patience for solution. The policy of frankness which we hart prac ticed prompts us to make it clear that the difficul ties under which we are now operating are such' that it will be many months before we can bring - our service back to 'the standard of efficiency pre vailing prior to the European war. The abnormal increase m the volume of tele )hone calls due to war activities created a need or a greater number of operators and we have been diligently building up an enlarged operating force. When this situation was very well in hand last fall the influenza epidemic played havoc with our forces and our losses from illness and death are still alarming. As a result of this combination of circumstances, the percentage of new and inex perienced operators is large and there is now a serious shortage although our training schools are graduating large classes every month. Although our service has suffered from these -causes the public has been considerate and we have been able to handle a heavier traffic than seemed humanly possible and have installed , promptly and operated efficiently the telephone plants required by the government at army camps and other similar institutions. The situation confronting our service is more serious now than it was when fighting was in progress. The public has relaxed from its ten sion and is inclined to expect our service to at once assume its pre-war efficiency. We deem it our duty to make this frank statement and urge you to continue the conservation of the service which proved so helpful during the time of our . nation's greatest need. We are operating the telephone system as agents for the federal government under the su pervision of the Postmaster General, arid our loyal organization is making a patriotic effort to perfect the service. Your continued co-operation and encouragement will be appreciated. Cumberland Telephone and Telegraph Company INCORPORATED DR. JAKE H.
