BIG BEAUTY SHOP SERVED BY NOVEL THONE SYSTEM Some idea of the extent to which the modern beauty parlor aiei the telephone to handle customer appoint- ments and expedite the work oi a large staff of beauticians may be gahied by rtslting the parlor in the S , W. Ed- wards ft Son department store in Buf- falo, N. T. This shop, said to be the largest of its kind in the United States, If not in the world, has a ctaft of 1S8 •mployaj||h Including six clerks who devote their entire time to answering telephone calls and arranging appoint- ments. This shop, which recently moved to new and larger quarters, has a new tele- phone system believed Lo be the only one of Its kind In the country. It Is a satellite. 4ial exchange with 64 lines connecting the appointment clerks, the manager and his assistant with \bean- tlolans\ at work in 46 booths. The ar- rangement is such that the latter can only reach, or be reached by, the ap- pointment desk or the managerial tele- phones. The exchange has ten lines linking it with the telephone com- pany's cdBtral office and six extensions from the store's main switchboard. The ueauty shnp's telephone service is callcd Uitc use when the customer ar- rives tor her tiealment.

On that date in 1916 the flrst tele- phone circuit to span the United States wai opened lo public use. President Wilson talked from the White House over the line. After years of effort, en- gineers had found ways to transmit sound clearly over such a distance. In New York, Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone, repeat- ed the flrst complete sentence ever heard by telephone: \Mr. Watson, come here; I want yon.\ He was answered In San Francisco by the same Thomas A. Watson to whom these words were spoken in 1876 when working with Bell In a garret workshop In Boston. For the occasion there was ineinded in the transcontinental circuit the origl- oal SO feet of wire used hi the workshop line. Now some 94,000,000 miles of tele- phone wire Interconnect more than 20,600,000 telephones throughout the nation. And air as well as wire voice- ways unite this with other countries.

COUNTRY'S TELEPHONES REACH ALL-TIME PEAK; 19,500,000 IN SERVICE NtwYfik State MOK HIS 300,000 M m Tlun Rmit, h f n , Ck'ni and BritUh India *Don*t Touch* Say» Law, Ptde-Top Neatg Remain Sea-hawks, a rare species of birdp that sometimes use the tops of tele phone poles for homesites, have been a problem for telephone linemen near Branford River on the Conner ticut shore. The birds build a nest, as much iip four feet across and eighteen Inches deep, of driftwood sticks and sea- weed. This closely woven material retains moistme, which impairs transmission when in contact with telephone Hues. It would be easy enough to knock down the nests, but state law in Con- necticut forbids disturbing either the birds or their abodes. So the tele- phone company surrenders the top crossbar on the pole to any sea-hawk which has built a nest there, and places another crossarm some dis- tance below, transferring the wires. The birds return each year to the old nests and add to the size of their pole-top mansions. 'LITTLE BUSINESS' HAS ITS 'BIG MOMENTS' TOO Telephones In the United Ststee have reached an all-time peak, with an estlmsted total of 19,500,000 In service. The United States, with only e per cent of the world's population, has about half the world's tele- phonee, which number some 39,000^ 000. Telephones installed In operator*' cabs of overhead cranes used In the warehouse of a lumber company hava speeded up handling of orders. From his desk the shipping clerk can call a crane operator to give him Instruo- tions, regardless of where the erase la working.

Pho M 614 New York State, with approximately I,700,000 Bell System and connecting company telephones, has nearly 14 per cent of the country's total. There are about 300,000 more telephones in New York State than in all of Russia, Japan, China and British India, although these countries have much more than half the population of the world. A recently completed world survey, giving figures as of January 1, 1937, | shows that next to the United States, Germany had on that date the greatest number of telephones, 3,431,074, fol- lowed by Great Britain with 2,791,597 telephones, France with 1,481,788, Can- ada with 1,266,228 and Japan with 1,- 197,129. These five countries, together with the United States, account for more than three-quarters of all tele- phones In the world. The United States outranks all other countries not only in the total number of telephones but also In telephone density. It had 14.39 telephones to each 100 of its population, compared with II.48 for Canada, 3.61 for France, 5.93 for Great Britain and 5.08 for Germany, Washington, D. C., had the blgUest telepho^ density of any city in the world, with 37.43 telephones per 100 population, followed closely by San Francisco with 37 telephones per 100 population. In this classincatlon New York City stood in fifteenth place. Third place in telephone density of the world's cities goes to Stockholm. Sweden, with 34.78 telephones per 100 population Next In order come Denver, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Seattle, Omaha, Minneapolis, Chicago and Toronto. Of the first eleven ranking cities in telephone density only three are outs'de the United States.

A 2-man export firm in New York re- ceived a telephone call soon after noon one day recently from a Western manu- facturer, extending for the rest ot that day an option on certain goods. These could be sold to a London dealer, the export partners believed. But in Lon- don, owing to the 5-hour difference in time, It was already after 5 p.m. How could the sale be made before the busi- ness day closed there at 6 p.m.? At 12:25 p.m. In New York — only thirty-five minutes before the 6 p.m. \deadline\ in London—one of the part- ners called \Long Distance,\ asked for the overseas operator, and gave her the name and address of the prospective customer in London. What happened after that he describes as follows: \In four minutes we were talking by telephone to our prospect in London, although he was out of his office at the time, having been located at tea in a nearby restaurant. \Our conversation lasted four min- utes and resulted In closing a deal net- ting us $1,340 profit. The cost of the telephone call was $28. \We then called the sales manager ot the Western concern and confirmed the details of the transaction. He inquired with astonishment how we had been able to dispose ot the goods so quickly. We told him we had sold them in Lon- don by transatlantic telephone.\ \This was the flrst time we had used this service for business. When abroad, 1 call my family here at home every week by telephone.\ T RANSOCEANIC CHRIS T E N I N G ' MAXWELL HOUSE COFFEE lb. 24c Breakfast Coffee, Our Blend lb. 19c Camp. Soups, Ex.
