Edna Rhead, a "dispatcheress"
for a local cab association, voiced
this opinion between numerous
telephone calls and radio mes-
sages. She is one of the three dis-
patchers working an eight-hour
shift whose. job is to.act as go-
betweens for five telephone lines
and 24 radio-equipped cabs.
THE DISPATCHERS keep track
of each cab at seven cab stands
throughout the city. When the call
for a cab comes in the dispatcher
sends a driver from the nearest
stand and checks off his number.

The radios used by the cab
association transmit on an ul-
tra-high frequency which can
be heard for about 15 miles.

amateurs trying to break in on
the frequency and foul up the

"THE TOP qualifications for a
cab dispatcher are experience and
r tact. Many times I'm able to
catch only a part of the report
from the cab and have to guess
the rest," Miss Rhead explained.
"After a bit of experience a
dispatcher can learn the sound
of each driver's voice so if sev-
eral drivers radio in at once
they can be called back later to
get the full message," she con-
"The dispatcher must be as fair
as possible in giving jobs to the
cabs. The drivers all pay for the
radio service and it is unfair to
"However," Miss Rhead declar-
ed, "we do at times consider the
driver and the job. For example
if a driver is having trouble with
his back we don't usually send
him on a run that may involve
lifting heavy trunks or bags."
"I've been in the cab business
for eight years," she reported.
"When radio dispatching was first
used in Ann Arbor three years ago
I shifted to that end of the busi-
ness. However, I still drive a cab
