Mr Polk said lhat twenty years ago
when he first entered the telephone busi

work for an operator to moke 200 connec

period were exceedingly cumbersome, an-!
the operator walked about five miles, from
one end of the room lo the other, tn the
course of his day's labor. With modern
apparatus li 1s possible to make 236 con
