SCARCITY OF TEEPHONE EQUIPMEF.T
As new subscribers a number of individuals have recently
placed orders with us for telephones. Old subscribers have
asked for service at new locations. They have been told by our
representatives that immediate compliance with their desires
. was impossible, owingk to lack of "telephone facilities" in a par
ticular locality. "Why," one will say, "The poles and wires are
on the street and the house is alreayd wired."
We wish that the problem were as simple as it ; sounds.
There may be poles, but every wire may be in use giving service
to others. There may be a cable, but" every circuit in it may be
assigned to telephones already installed. There may be spare
wires and circuits, but no switchboard apparatus at the central ,
office to which they can be connected. There may even be sec
tions of switchboard, but not available for operation on account
of the lack of necessary accessories such asv ringing keys, re
The reason for the shortage of telephone equipment is sim
ple. During the war period we were unable to maintain our re
serve or stock plant as the same materials we use were required
and taken for Government purposes and for industries properly
favored by the Government. Since the war, with the unexpect
edly prolonged problems of reconstruction, production and de
livery of materials needed to meet even current demands have
been delayed. Every business "concern is having similar exper
iences. The manufacturers of telephone equipment have been
bending every effort to fill our ordrs, but they in turn are meet-
ing the same difficulties in securing rubber, paper, silk, glass,
porcelain, tin, thread, shellac, metal parts and other articles not
generally associated in the public mind with telephone service.
At the same time with this abnormal situation with refer
ence to materials there exists iin unprecedented demand for tel
ephone service- and even under these circumstances our record is
one of fulfillment of demand. In the first eight months of this ,
year we have added 6863 telephonse in the State of Oregon. In
the eight months prior to the declaration of war we gained 2655
We desire to give sevrice as much as a patron wishes to re
ceive it. We desire to promptly comply with the suggestions of
public authorities who have taken a proper interest in the situ
ation. We are facing abnormal conditions but we will of nec
essitygradually overcome our difficulties.
