Affel, holds a section of the modern, eighi-tube cable now fceing installed in the Bell System's Expanding coaxial cable network. \ By the end of 1950, approximately 12,000 miles of coaxial cable are ex- pected to be installed, furnishing heavy-capacity communication pipe- lines between vir$u*Uy *11 the large cities in the East, Middle West and Pacific Coast.

Mobile Voiceways Aid •?» In Mammoth Copper Are the 153 Telephone Companies in N. Y. Statewide Service Life is happiest when neighbors swap courtesies and cooperate in ser- vices. That applies not only to people individually but to organizations such as those providing telephone service in New York State, in the opinion of Edward V. Moran, general agent of the New York Telephone Company's Upstate area, at Albany. Ill his capacity Mr. Moran heads a group whose full-time job is getting along with neighbors—the 152 other telephone companies in the State with which his company connects in rendering Statewide service. Some of these telephone neighbors are big, others small. The New York Telephone Company operates more than 4,600,000 telephones. The Roch- ester Telephone Corporation, the na- tion's biggest independent company. serves about 170,000 telephones, and the Upstate Telephone Corporation of New York operates more than 33,000 telephones in large areas of seven counties in the Adirondack region. The smallest of the New York companies is the Cameron Mutual Telephone Company, which serves only four telephones. Neighborliness between the com- panies finds its most frequent expres- sion in everyday things like ironing out wrinkles in operating procedure, states Mr. Moran. More spectacular, however, was the expression when fire destroyed the central office of the Cape Vincent Telephone Company. Then the Lewis & Hall Telephone Company of Manlius supplied a needed switchboard and crews of the New York Telephone Company pitched in, helping to install the board, so Cape Vincent's service was restored in 48 hours. New Congo Radio Service Bring* Jazz to Jungles A new radio service to natives in the Belgian Congo, which,, has been inaugurated in six local dia- lects under the direction of native announcers and technicians, is displacing the old system of tom- toms as a means of communica- tion in the jungle. The National Geographic Society, announcing this new step forward, also hinted that the throb of distant drums in the Congo will probably be ac- companied now by trumpets and saxophones of modern orchestras. Drum communication has a lan- guage of its own, with each blow representing a spoken syllable The drum itself, hollowed from a hardwood tree, is limited to two tones—the result of cutting the wood thicker on one side than on the other. But these tones, pro- duced by good drummers, can \spell out 1 ' surprisingly complex messages. NEW CENTER IN NETWORK FOR LONG DISTANCE CALLS A major addition to the nation's network for expediting long distance telephone calls by operator toll dial* ing was placed in service with the recent opening of the New England Telephone and Telegraph Company's oew long distance center in Boston, This sixth major control point in the network, together with the other New England communities tied into it through Boston, brings to about 600 the number of cities and towns in the United States to which long dis- tance calls can be dialed by the oper- ator. All told, approximately 30 per cent of the Bell System's long dis- tance calls are now handled in this manner. During its first year of operation, the mobile radiotelephone on the New York Central Railroad's crack passenger train, the \Twentieth Cen- tury Limited.' 1 handled 5.288 calls. Conservation Department Mastic Fire Plan Includes Modern Radio Equipment Under a state conservation depart- ment master fire plan, Adirondack area rangers soon will guard against forest fire outbreak with mobile and hand radio transmitters. Bids on 77 pieces of equipment, including walkie-talkies, small trans- mitters and mobile transmitters will be opened Thursday by the conser- vation department's Division of Standards and Purchases. Included in the lists are 23 six- pound battery-operated, portable pack type AM two-way radios; 22 battery-operated AM two-way 50 pound radios for use in fire towers; 26 two-channel transmitters and re- ceivers for truck duty and five larger receivers and transmitters for use in district stations. The radio controlled fire fighters will be directed from a department 'airplane or a fire tower. tangier *On the Line* The international city of Tangier, overlooking the Strait of Gibraltar in North Africa, is the latest addition of cities of the world that can be reached by Bell System radiotele- phone from the United States. Calls between the Moroccan seaport and this country are routed via Madrid, Spain, and New York City. The Bell Telephone Company of | Canada installed its 1,500,000th tele- \ phone recently, marking the addition of half a million telephones in four Tears.
