have occasion to travel on Univer-

New Loading Coils Save Coppe:rd Nickel for War

A LOAi)ING COIL is dough-
nc.t-shaped contrivance of copper
wire wound over a ring of alloy
containing nickel. Its job is to
give your voice an electrical "push"
as you talk over a telephone line.
There is about one loading coil
for every mile of an average Long
Distance telephone circuit in cable
-nearly half a million in Michi
gan ':lone, bsides about 200,000
oil locial r's,
For )years ItIe- HellSysternis V,
sear li has been making these coils
progressively smaller, yet keeping
them as effective as the larger coils.

Now, as a further step to help meet
the shortage of war materials, pad-
ing coils have been developed that
use only about half as much copper
and nickel as the former type. The
pictures indicate the latest reduc-
tion in size.
Material shortages and war conser-
jatior orders /nake it impossible in
scime instances to stPPly telephone

Satisfy public rcquests, ivar demands
