How many operators will
we need NEXT YEAR?
This is but one of the many questions telephone
men are called upon to answer.
Part of their work has always been to anticipate
demands for personnel ... to determine what
additional equipment must be provided, what new
construction will be necessary to handle the con
stantly increasing demands for service.
Careful planning in every phase of telephone
work requires the services of many qualified men.
For them, this growing business offers the oppor
tunity for active, interesting careers.
There’s a future in telephony.
