Meeting the Demand '
Meeting the demand for more efficient telephone service is L
just as difficult as meeting the demand on any other public y
concern—whether it be an over-crowded grocery store, a pop- j
ular ticket window, a bargain counter or anything else jWhere \
supply is running short. *
'- \ \
Conditions are unusual throughout the entire manufacturing*,,
mercantile and domestic world. Deficiencies iriNtelephone v v
service which have been quite obvious for are
directly due to these abnormal conditions. \
Materials are scarce—manufacturers are not able to meet the'*? N
demand—telephone supplies cannot be had—the diverted \ Xfr
all activities in other directions, and they are just beginning
to come back. Until the normal level is struck, there is bound-1
to be shortage of supplies and this means
deficiencies. 1 Vr|
The telephone service is probably no better or no worsen than
the general average of the business and domestic routing.
The telephone management is in a vigorous campaign toijget
its service back to the old standard of speed and accuracy. \
Patience and co-operation on the part of the public will great
ly aid in bringing about mutual satisfaction.
