24 SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE COMPANY.
Lightning strikes and several telephone
lines are out. Rain begins to fall and freeze
on the wires, a heavy wind rises and mile after
mile of sleet-weighted telephone wires are torn
Or perhaps just a few drops of water leak
through some tiny hole in a telephone cable
and several wires are short-circuited and made
When disaster or damage are reported, our
every resource is concentrated on the restor-
ation of service at the earliest possible moment.
Constant expense and increasing effort are
required to provide satisfactory and uninter-
rupted telephone service.
Here’s what’s next.
