When the Nation hurries, it hurries by telephone. And to
day speed is the battle cry, as America builds its defenses.
Whether it's tanks or planes, bombs or bazookas,
Long Distance serves on every production job. Getting
orders and giving them. Rushing raw materials here
speeding workers there. Saving precious minutes and
cutting red tape.
The Bell System is better equipped to handle today's
rush job because it speeded its own building program. In
1941, for instance, there were about 4,800,000 miles of
Long Distance circuits. Today there arc nearly 20,800,
, 000 and more will be needed.
When America's capacity
to produce depends so much
on good communications, it's
a good thing this nationwide
telephone system has ex
panded so rapidly. And it is
essential that it keep right on

Mrs. Hipps Finds
Much Joy, Beauty
In Flower Garden
A gardener with a "green
thumb" is Mrs. M. L. Hipps of
Lake Junaluska. In less than five
years she has transformed the set
ting of her home from the bleak
clay expanse left by a bulldozer to
a green lawn with a splendid sweep
of flower1; blooming from early
spring till late fall.
Blooming now are tulips, creep
ing phlox Iris just those pale,
almost orchid ones and some dark
blue now; the others will be out
later," says Mrs. Hipps. The hardy
Sweet William is just starting to
come out. There are pansics and
grass pink, and more varieties than
you can count.
The poppies are just beginning
to bud. "I think I have every kind
of poppy there is;'' Mrs. Hipps
smiles, "they're one of my favorite
flowers," There will by hollyhocks
and roses and cannas. When they
have come to their peak and fad
ed, the marigolds and dahlias will
be ready to take their place.
Mrs. Hipps uses a prepared plant
food for potted flowers. Outdoor
plants are on a dieH of compost of
cow manure, varied by a plant food
solution used according to direc1
tions. She finds that she obtains
the best results by mixing the
compost or plant food in water and
spraying, but occasionally she ap
plies the dry plant food directly
on the ground.
With the almost infinite variety
of flowers and plants that Mrs,
Hipps grows and her habit of

type that strikes her fancy
