Bobbie Bunny sut on the bank of
the river looking Into the water.
Every now and then he would put
his head this way and then
that. Finally he stood on his head
and looked into the water.
"I can't see It myself," he mused.
By and by his sister came along,
hopping and skipping.-
"What in the wide world is tne
matter with you," asked Billie
"I was looking for the hole in my
face. Mister Jay Bird told me I had
a hole in my face and I have been
looking in the water ever so long
and I can't see any hole can you?"
Billie laughed so she was all

always up to mischief and when he

There is no hole in your face ex

of my mouth being a hole. That's
a good one."
"Yes and it proved to you how
foolish it is to worry about some

The Telephone serves best when its
service is universal
YOUR TELEPHONE is connectible with
143,000 other telephones in Oregon, and with
niiutmn million telephones all over the
A moment's thought will show that such
a broad service putting your telephone at
the center of a network that covers Oregon
and the nation is made possible only by
uniformity of equipment, uniformity of
method, and close-working harmony between
the operating companies of these widely
separated geographical areas.
About two-thirds of the nation's telephones
the nineteen million to which your tele
phone is readily connectible are operated by
a group of companies known collectively as
the Bell System. The Pacific Telephone and
Telegraph Company is one of these operating
Not only does the relationship give the
Pacific Company the right to all patents,
technical experience and results of scientific
research of the Bell System, but it enables
the Pacific Company to operate at the lowest
possible cost thereby keeping charges for
telephone service at a minimum. Through

THE PACIFIC TELEPHONE
The co-ordinating head of the Bell System
is the American Telephone and Telegraph
Company, a national organization with more
than 420,000 stockholders. It owns a majority
of the stock of the operating companies. Its
fundamental interest is the best possible tele
phone service at the lowest cost, consistent
with safety, and its fifty-year-old guiding
principle has been to seek no speculative or
large profits, but to work solely for a con
stantly enlarging and improving telephone
The ownership of a majority of The Pacific
Telephone and Telegraph company's stock by
the American Telephone and Telegraph Com
pany has been regularly published in the
American Company's annual report, and
spread broadcast for many years. It is one
of the chief reasons for the advanced type of
telephone service enjoyed in Oregon and on
the Pacific Coast.
We arm proud to be one of the family
of associated companie whose mutual co
operation and accee to the telephone ex
perience and research tervicee of the nation
have given to Oregon and the United Statee
the moet nearly mivertal telephone service
possessed by any country.
