Getting there ahead of the trouble
D uring the afternoon of March 17, 1928, an alarm
bell rang in a telephone test station. This meant that
a puncture had been made in the air-tight sheath of
a busy inter-city cable. The men on duty knew that
the injury was somewhere within 50 miles.
Highly developed locating devices were instantly
applied and in sixty-five minutes the trou ble spot was
located. By 7:15 in the evening, before the break
in the sheath had affected service on any of the 248
pairs of wires in the cable, the repairs had been
made without one conversation being interrupted.
This special alarm system is one of the many mechan­
ical and electrical wonders developed by Bell System
engineers to guard telephone conversations.
Automatic wamingsignals, electrical locatingde-
▼ices, constant testing of all switchboard apparatus
and circuits—these arc some of the ceaseless efforts
that so effectively reduced interruptions to service
on Bell lines in 1928. There is no standing still in
the Bell System.
