Keenly aware of the problems of business, large

stantly devising special telephone plans to custom-
fit service to the user's needs.
For example, a plan they worked out for a
coal distributor helped him to contact 50% more

plan, sold 700 dozen pairs of hosiery through
one Long Distance call. A great meat packer
handles complex sales and distribution problems
efficiently with the aid of planned Long Distance

Systematic telephone plans are helping many
