"State-Wide" Telephone Service
Our efforts are constantly directed to the extension and im
provement of "state-wide" telephone service. Large and small
communities are dependent upon each other, commercially and
socially. Good telephone equipment in the cities and towns of
Oregon, with good construction and well maintained "long dis
tance" pole lines and wires between, mean their mutual conven
ience and profit. m . a f, ,
The value of any telephone is proportionate to the number
of other telephones which may be connected with it In Oregon
there are approximately 138,000 telephones connected with our
system. Ideal telephone service irieans the prompt connection of
any one of these with any other and the least possible loss in
strength and distinctness in the conversations that follow.
Our entire plant is engineered and constructed with the ob
ject of rendering a satisfactory "state-wide" service sufficient
in facilities available and with these facilities efficiently main
tained. JFor this purpose the telephone equipment must be bet
ter, local and trunk wires must be of proper size and type, and
central offices and switchboards must have additional apparatus
, to accommodate and care for the long distance circuits. j
Before the troubled period of the war we alwavs aimed to
maintain "spare"'or.reserve plantthat is- plant ahead of im
mediate needs, thus insuring prompt and more satisfactory com
pliance with demands for service as they arose. During the
war this reserve was exhausted as the materials we use were
required and properly taken by the Government and those in
dustries given priorty consideration. ;
With the reconstruction period, as is the case with all other
lines of business, our problems have continued to an unexpected
degree. We are still hampered by shortage of materials and
delayed deliveries.
We realize the requirements of our long distance patrons.
We have a comprehensive and well defined program designed
to provide additional toll circuits sufficient to meet the present
and constantly growing demands.

Scalped in Auto Accident.
Dr.. Sharp and Smith had a task
of some proportions the other night,
when a garage man of Walla Walla
was brought in for repairs, his
scalp having been almost torn
from his head. The man with two
others was bringing an automobile to
the McEwen ranch, when the car in
which he was riding overturned, the
windshield cutting his scalp from the
nape of his neck to his forehead. Ho
was taken to Walla Walla next day
by his companion.
