Good old Colonel Bogey is being
discredited by Columbia golfers. The
colonel is supposed to be the father
of the game. His spirit hovers about
every hazard, creen and tee in this
country, and he has a score credited to
him on everj' course in the land. His
score represents good, average golf.
However, the average golfer shoots
hopelessly at the old man's mark.
Columbians may be charged with ir
rererence toward the 11030" beard of
the father of their game. His tradi
tional mark for the University golf
course is 39. But he must have topped
the ball on every drive and dubbed
every approach when he made it if the
recent scores of the club members are
I to be a criterion.

F. H. Hobrecht
OLD TRAILS GARAGE
A "anr of from four to seven men have been making
additions to our switchboard since the 18th of March.
These improvements, now nearing completion, will affect
some changes in the operation of thc service, notably that
of ringing subscribers. Heretofore the operators did the
ringing. Very often it was necessary to ring more than
once to secure an answer to a call. This made it necessary
for the operator to supervise every call, so that if the party
called did not answer the first ring the operator could ring
again, and so on to keep ringing until the calling party was
satisfied the operator had done all that could be done to
get an answer from the party desired. Usually the opera
tor would inquire, "Did the party answer?" To one fa
miliar with the fact that the operator knew by the light
of a little lamp that the party had not answered, and that
this was simply a method of letting the calling party know
the operator was on the j'ob, this seemed a mockery. But
tin's all required time. Under the improvements now near
ing completion thc ringing is done automatically, and the
ringing causes a little buzzing on thc line, so that the call
ing paru may know the telephone called for is ringing,
and instead of the operator staying on the line trying to
induce the called party to answer; and at the same time
trying to convince the calling party that she is trying to
get the party called to answer by inquiring whether the
party had answered, she puts up the connection and is then
permitted to wait on some other caller, leaving the ring
ing machine to do the rest, which it does by ringing two
seconds, then waiting four seconds for the party to answer,
when, if the answer is not made, it rings another two sec
onds, and so on until there is an answer, or until the call
ing party is satisfied there will be no answer, and hangs up
the receiver; Hence one may as well answer promptly, for
the ringing will continue until it is answered, or the call
ing, party hangs up thc receiver. Then it is too late to an
swer. So don't loaf on the j'ob but answer promptly; and
the calling party will know the ringing is being done by
hearing a little buzzing sound on the line, without any fur
ther interference or bother from the operator. As soon'as
one is satisfied the called party will not answer, one should
hang up the receiver, when the ringing will instantlv cease.
But one should not make the mistake of taking this
buzzing sound for the busy signal. The sound which in
dicates that the telephone called for is ringing is a buz
zing sound, and will be heard at regular intervals of
four seconds, continuing two seconds, while the busy sig
nal is a sort of wow-wow-wow, and is continuous. One
will soon become familiar witli the difference.
There have been other improvements, but when we
become accustomed to thc automatic ringing, the other
changes will fit in easily.
One may understand under what difficulties the serv
ice has been kept up during the past five or six months
with thc switchboard room full of mechanics making ad
ditions and changes, and much of the time the switch
board .seriously torn to pieces. Our operators have been
sorely tried. Had they not been an exceptionally fine col
lection of girk and young women they could not have done
so well. Though many interruptions have been unavoida
ble, the public may rest assured the operating force, from
the chief operator down have striven almost beyond en
durance, and the Manager of the Service appreciates their
efforts, as those who realize what they have had to con
tend with will surely do.
When these improvements are completed the people of
Columbia can feel assured they have a telephone system
without an equal in up-to-dateness in the State. There is
not a plant like it in St. Louis or Kansas City.
These improvements cost between $5,000.00 and $6,
000.00. besides thc work and trouble of the local force. It
goes without saying that we thought thc improvements and
additions desirable or we wouldn't have paid such a large
sum to get them. Of course our desire and ambition that
Columbia shall have the very best possible had its influ
ence, but we believe thc people will appreciate the improved
service, when it is perfected, which will require some time,
as the new apparatus must be adjusted to the service.
In the meantime the Manager asks patrons to be
patient and assist us with their good nature, for we are
certainly trying to give them the very last word in telephone
