Mow Telephone Moos Are Move#
From One Itefcttoni’d to Another.
"Cutting over” is the technical
phrase applied to moving the wires in
a telephone central office from one
gffltchtioftrdvUo <o.hotl\er. If you will
reflect that many of the Switchboards
of the type used in, the Bell exchanges
of large cities carry tt.tlOO lines, you
will see what a task transferring such
n mass of wires is. Indeed, there are
few mechanical operations which more
impress one with a sense of absolutely
perfect forethought ami organization.
When un exchange is to tie “cut
over,” all the outside lines coming Into
it, both overhead and underground, are
tapped and practically connected with
the new hoard while the old one is still i
In use. That Is to say. they are brought

The operators art thoroughly drilled
