life is the wife of Director Buel,

TODAY TELEPHONE PROPERTIES ARE
\iter a year of hederal Control the telephone proper-
ty, which makes up the Bell Telephone System, is today
i etui ned to its owners by the United States Government.
W liile the property has been properly maintained, it
is not the same property which the government took over
on August 1st, 191(S. It is not as adequate for its job or
as well manned as it was: I hat it is not, is in no way the
fault of hederal Control which was eminently fair. It is
due to causes for which neither the -Government nor the
Companies are to blame.
A year ago today we were at war. Labor and mater-
ials needed for both telephone operation and construction
were turned to military uses. Some materials were so
vital to the carrying on of the war that even the work af
pioviding telephone facilities for the Government was
retarded and no part of them could be spared for Com-
mercial telephone purposes.
No less vital was the Government need for those skilled to create, main-
tain and operite the vast intercommunication system necessary'in modern
warfare, and in the conduct of the vastly increased Government services.
Thousands of telephone men were already at the battle front. Thousands
more went under arms, and still telephone experts and skilled operators went
into the service of the government and contributary industries by the tens of
ihe reserves of plant and equipment were drawn upon until they were
entirely used up and the experinced staff was gradually depleted. To find oth-
ers to take places of those who had gone was difficult, to train them takes
, During the year came victory and the armistice, and instantly the busi-
ness world sprang into intense activity. ( I he demands for telephone service
passed all former records.
o replace the exhausted reserves, which had been carried for just such
ses, and to replace the skilled forces to meet this unprecedented emerg-
ency, there began a rush for construction. For readjustment; for high pres-
>ur repairs; for feverish extension. All these must be continued with in-
J he return of the property comes in the very midst of this race between
< verpowering demand and an upbuilding of a system whose growth was held
back and whose forces were scattered by the vital needs of war.
Much progress has been made in the upbuilding of this system, but far
more is still required to meet the swift growtli of business; and also to give
(first aid) to eve. v other business and every other service struggling against
an unprecedented demand.
Ihe prosperity which creates thiemergency in service creates also a
scarcity of those desiring employment in the service.
I'nder such conditions telephone service generally has not been and could
not be up to the prewar standard, h is beyond human power to immediately
overcome the handicap which the situation imposts.
There arc no people in any public or private endeavor who are working
more tirelessh or strenuously fur the common s;ood than those of the tele-
phone companies. Service has always been given. More of it must be given
and it must be improved That improvement in some cases will take months.
Eventually service must win the race with demand.
