Miss Pounstone estimated that
more than half of the public ap
preciates the service of the tele
phone operators. The others, she
said, do not know the meaning
of appreciation. On the Broad

calls every day and who! never
complain. Some difficulties in
service she attributed to private
branch exchanges as having no
relation to the central office.

resentment of the telephone op
erators of the fact that many

Cancellation of the plans for
