Bquint Miller, who's workinn as
a telephone lineman, was telling me
about some birds that got into a
fight with hia company.
Seem couple of woodpeckers
set up housekeeping in a telephone
pole. Nobody minded them living
there, but they kept pecking at the
wires causing one short circuit
Finally, the telephone people
who had nothing personal against
the birds Just atopped up the hole
where they lived. But they kept
coming back. At last, the company
donated that pole to the woodpeck
cra and set up a brand-new one for
their own uae 1

SHE "PUSH-BUTTONS" CALLS COAST-TO-COAST
New system can put through calls in 30 seconds
1 . One of our newest developments to speed
your Long Distance calls is mis push-button
equipment. So complex it's almost a mechanical
brain, it's a key to a system which permits an
operator to call straight to telephones in other
cities . . . practically as fast as dialing across town.
Push-button or dial equipment now is used for
three out of four calls between dries.
3. Perhaps your next Long Distance call may
be handled this way. For the new plan is part of
our program to improve all service to make it
more valuable to you . . . and it's a bargain today.
A daytime station call to any point on the East
Coast on I v . 2. 50 plus tax ... the lowest rate ever.
Be Pacific Telephone
2. Quicker call completions are one big ad-
vantage of the push-button system. If you know
the number instead of just the name and address
we can ring the telephone you are calling in an
average of about thirty seconds after you lift the
receiver. That's three times as fast as we can serve
you if you don't know the number. So it's a good
idea to keep a list of those you call often.
Your telephone is one of
today's best bargains

WHITf STAO,LEADER IN SKI TOGS
Young collegt graduate Harold S.

(renamed the White Stag Manufactur
ing Co.) is the world's largest manu
facturer of ski togs... and its newer
line of sportswear are growing in
popularity. To maintain leadership,

SERVES WEST COAST FISHERMEN
Friends were punled when H. L. Web
ster, a perfectionist in fashioning split
bamboo falling rods, moved from New
England to Oregon. But Webster fore
saw greater opportunity by serving the
West Coast's anglers. He picked Glad
stone as a central location, and a year
ago began turning out hand-made rods
for all types of sports fishing. Orders
from sales outlets have grown steadily.
Recently bis H. L. Webster Rod Co.
moved Into larger quarters, equipped
with precision beveling, tapering and
laminating machines of his own design.
Webster nukes advantageous use of
sen ices of First National's Oregon City
Branch to keep his company growing.
Dehlnd each successful Oregon enterprise, you'll
find hard-working, clear-thinking individuals. Their
fields of endeavor often differ widely, but they have
a common ability for making the most of each oppor
tunity. This reflects sound planning, usually including
the effective use of helpful banking services. By ,
making a variety of such constructive service widely
available, banks in the First National Group help
Oregon grow family by family, farm by farm and
business by business. Make it a point to drop In toon
and tell us how we can help you.
