Every Town /
in Texas /
Her Easy Reach
To Miss Long Distance there is no distant
land-every town and city in Texas is within her easy reach
-foreign countries are only minutes away.
She has finger-tip control of a huge, far-flung telephone
system-millions of miles of wire in Texas, a vast amount of
complex telephone equipment, more than half a million Bell
telephones in the state, and nearly 200,000 telephones served
by other companies. She plugs a cord in the switchboard,
flips a key, and sends your voice racing over miles and miles
of tiny copper voice highways.
Building, operating and maintaining the telephone plant
that serves Texas is the day-to-day job of thousands of Texas
telephone people who work together with one common goal
-to furnish fast, accurate, dependable telephone service at
the lowest possible cost.
SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE CO.
