"But where did you get it?" asked the girls breathlessly. . "Just asked for it," she said, "and everybody vras willing to help me fill my bank."

The Nation's Needs Come First Any patriotic American would glady stand aside and give his place anywhere to an officer on government duty. The placing of the Bell telephone system at the disposal of the government, as was done wherjr' war broke put, involved the same patriotic obliga tion;1 During the months of military preparedness, the War anderNavy Departments had the- service . of the most comprehensive and efficient telephone system in the world. And it must be kept so. In the face of the unprecedented demand from pri-' vate sources, every government need niust and will be met. The government comes first but we; are do- . J ing everything that science can suggest; and that money can accomplish to maintain Mr general Service at the usual standard of efficiency. A loyal organization is working contim&usly to meet the increased demands and your patient co-operation will prove helpful and inspiring. Telephone users can help b avoiding useless conversation and by encouraging their employes and associates to use the telephone only when necessary during the busy fyours of the day, and to make thir conversations brief. With this patriotic attitude of the public to-, ward us we can serve the government first and render a service that will jtieet the requirements of the commercial and social world.
