In peace times, we were able to keep the

copper, rubber and other materials normally
used in large quantities by the telephone in
dustry have had to go into fighting equipment.
Our reserves of used telephones and other
equipment have been reconditioned and put
back into service. This equipment is just as
dependable and as serviceable as new equip
ment. But wartime telephone needs are so
great that these, with other measures, haven’t
been enough and we are nearing the limit of
New telephone service for persons defined
by Government Order as "essential” users
will be provided without delay. However, it
no longer is possible to provide as promptly
as in the past service for other new customers
or additional service for present customers.
Facilities shortages in some cases may cause
considerable delay in providing service. In
most instances, transfer of service for present
customers who move will be taken care of
with reasonable promptness.
We welcome applications for service and i
will do our best to meet everyone's require- ,
ments as promptly as possible.
