Tech is the place to go to get
wed, incidentally. And from past
experience, this writer must ad-
mit that hack in 1946-47 the
pickings were real good.
Life was serious; life was grim
back in those post war days. The
veterans were determined to
make up for the four years’ play
lost. Texas Tech was a veritable
desert, upon which a few build-
(ings stood. The campus of the
future was a paper dream, the
kvorld of tomorrow was a wistful
blueprint in the hearts oJ the
Several years ago at a Home-
coming game, the couples who
had met on the campus were
lasked to rise as a salute was
(given their long-ago romances.
•We were a couple among many,
and yet very special and near in
that moment of dedication and
It is startling to look back and
jsee how many of those hazy
dreams have already been real-
ized. Beyond our wildest expec-
tation is the “dream come true”
of little ones. A business of our
own was a potential happening
to arrive in 1967.
Our dreams are way ahead of
schedule. We have moved out
of our planning world into our
'working world. The Tech cam-
pus is a dim memory and the
dreams we dreamed in those days
are with us now!

, 9,000 Calls a Minute
Have you ever thought, as you picked up the phone,
how many other people were doing the same thing that
Well, believe, me, you’re not alone—you’ve got lots of
company. Texas people used their telephones 9,000 times
a minute last year.
\ That’s just for local calls. Long Distance lines were
busy, too, as Texans called out-of-town 98 million, times
This was a record number of both local and Long
Distance calls, but it looks now as though 1957 will be
an even busier telephone year.
What’s behind the steady increase in the number of
telephone calls? For one thing, thousands of new telephones
are added each year, but there’s more to it than that.
Nowadays, people seem to count on their telephone to
do more errands for them, to help ihem keep up with the
faster pace of living and doing business.
Personally, I think it makes a lot of sense. You can
do just about everything faster and easier with the tele-
Looking Ahead to Weekends
If you’re like most people, you look ahead to weekends.
Tlaats when family and friends get together to relax
and have fan.
Unfortunately, sometimes all «HieNfamily can’t he on
hand, or perhaps you haven’t heard from some old friends
for too long a time.
There’s no point in letting this dampen your weekend
fun. Just reach for the telephone and- call them Long
Distance. They’ll ho glad you called . . . and so will you.
Rates are lower all day Sunday, and after 6 p.rn.
v Convenience Is Here to Stay
• ,/ .. •
All around the house, every day, we see convenience
and more convenience.
Dad has his easy chair conveniently located next to
his ^ favorite reading table. Mother has a novel or her
sewing basket near her. And the youngsters like to have
a radio or record player in—their room.
Maybe this is the time to take another look at your
telephone service to make it more convenient -for you
and your family.
Why not have .telephones wh^re you want them, when
you need them? We’ll install additional phones wherever
they serve your family best—in kitchen, bedroom, or any
room in the house.
The cost is low, only $1.00 a month and a small one-
time installation charge. Just call the telephone business
office. ”T - -
Call by number. It's twice as fast.
