The busiest place in town
is the telephone office
The telephone office is just about the busiest place you can
imagine these days. There are more telephones connected
to the switchboard and more calls a day than ever before.
Operators are doing their best to keep the speed and
cpiality of service abreast of heavy demands. They handle
most of your calls promptly, but sometimes, during very
busy periods, there are more calls than they can answer
as quickly as they'd like.
Shortages of material ore holding hack the new equip-
ment we have ordered to expand the exchange here and in
scores of other towns. Meanwhile, we are doing everything
t we can to furnish you the best service possible.

designated "Covenant Sunday".
On this day every member of the
congregation is called upon to
make his subscription to the 1947
church budget. The amount of the
budget, $36,000.00, is the same as
This amount represents the local
open,ting budget and regular mis-
sion offerings ior the year 1047
and is to be raised the first four
Sundays of each month. All money
coming in on the fifth Sunday of
any month is designated building
fund money and is not a part of
the regular operating and mission
budget. Last year the budget was
not subscribed but was overpaid.
This year it is purposed to sub-
scribe the entire budget in ore
day. Every member of the church
and congregation will be encour-
aged to make a subscription and
place it in the Ark of the Cove-
nant. If you have never seen a
replica of the Ark of the Cove-
nant, you are invited to worship
with us next Sunday. If all the
members of the church and con-
firmation are present Sunday, it
