As yet weather conditions in Oklahoma and th* Mississippi Valley cotton states remains unfavorable, mote rain indicated, which conditions are likely to remain for several days be. cause of the presence of an extensive low pressure to the north of the western belt which is slow In moving eastward.

In May, 1926, Storm's attention was attracted by the screams of a group of women. He hurried to the scene and found the women trying to revive a boy who had been rendered unconscious through contact with a 2,300 volt light wire. Storm applied artificial respiration and revived the boy before a physician, who had to travel a distance of ten miles, arrived. 2 INCHES IOO MILES When using the telephone, if you talk with your lips two inches from the mouthpiece of the transmitter, you add what is the equivalent of IOO miles of telephone wire to the distance over which your voice must travel. The telephone current is designed to carry your voice satisfactorily when your lips are not more than one-half inch from the transmitter. Company Automobile* Average 25,000 Miler Per Accident First aid treatment and safety first principles are important features of the regular training of employee* in the construction, maintenance, and installation forces of the telephone company. These employees are taught not only to follow the safety rules themselves, but to be constantly on the alert to prevent accidents to others and to render first, aid treatment when necessary* SAFETY MEETINGS The foremen in charge get their men together at frequent intervals to give them safety instructions and to discuss any accidents which may have occurred during the interval between meetings, so as to prevent recurrence of similar accidents. One result of this safety first practice is that last year the employees using automobiles in their work drove them a total of 8,700,000 miles, with but one accident for each 25,-OOO miles, approximately the distance around the world. LOCAL CALLS Approximately 8,500,000 local telephone calls are handled daily in the Southwestern territory. Fifteen thousand five hundred operators are required to hafadle these calls, which average 5,900 for each minute of the day.
