“Wow! This job sure keeps me hopping!” (Nov, 1946)

“Wow! This job sure keeps me hopping!”

“BELIEVE me, fitting all the new dial and manual switchboard equipment and long distance facilities into Bell System central offices all around the country is keeping me mighty busy!

“In a single big dial exchange there may be 4,000 miles of wire. I may have to solder 2,500,000 connections before everything’s ready for you to dial a number.

“Besides installing this complex apparatus, I build it. That’s part of my job as manufacturer for the Bell System.

“I also purchase all manner of things for the Bell -Telephone Companies… and distribute these supplies to them along with the equipment I make.

“Ever since 1882, I’ve been helping to make our nation’s telephone service the best in the world. Today…with the Bell System’s construction program of more than $2,000,000,000 in full swing … I’m busier than ever.

“Remember my name… it’s Western Electric.”
