FULL ENJOYMENT The socialistic group within the government administration is d0i/tg iffs utmost to socialize our government. They want the government to guarantee full employment, increased wages and free trade. We have difficulty in seeing how we can have free trade, which would bring our products into competition with producs manufactured with cheap European and cheaper Asiatic labor, and at the same time have full employment .at higher than the existing wage. It would indeed be Utopian if we could have full employment, free trade, high wages and plenty for everyone. However, it just doesn&apos;t work out that way. Free trade means our workers will not be able to continue working at higher wages when for- eign labor: is paid from five cents to one dollar per day to make the same article for which our .... a+e getting ten dollars per day. -4:: f our boys with the socialistic trend in !;':i' administration, are not only asldng :!iernm:ent to guarantee full employment and higher wages for all labor but are ffninkmg of a guarantee of "full enjoyment" throughout the lives of all the people. FIRE PIEVENTION MUST BE PERSONAL ". @ Fire Preven<Jion Week, October 7 to 13, should command greater public interest this year than ever before. Never in history was so much pro- perry destroyed by fire in 365 days, as during :lst 12 months. ':ur own country, which has not been sub- :: :+' 'd to the ravages of war, there are 1,000 i:!::!!:':}:7-"[<"mefires every day. Once every 50 minutes ::::'' someone is burned to death - a large percentage of them children left in homes Which contain un- necessary fire hazards. Eight hundred million matches are used daily, each one capable of starting a fire in a home or factory. Two hun- dred and fifty billion cigarettes are smoked each year- each is a fire hazard which can ignite waste paper, bed clothes, material placed care- tessly on shelves, clothing, and a thousand-and- one other articles. No one can preven most of such fire losses except the ome owner, the lighter .of matches, , +the smoker, and each and every individual old :ouh to think Annual fire losses in the United ;!tes. whmh could larffely be prevented, are  ;ater than those caused by the bombings o ,, , . . London durmg the first years of the war. They are not as spectacular as the London losses be +- cause they are scattered all over the country, Ten thousand deaths from fire, distributed over 48 states, and tens of thousands of homes and factories des[royed, do not make headlines like the bombing of a city, but the permanence of death and fire loss for those involved, is just as real. Fire Prevention Week, from Octbber 7 to 13, is something all should observe- not for that weeV alone but for every day in the year.

Then we had about 305,000 unfilled orders for service of which more than 298#00 were.for service in residences. More orders come in every day, but nbw we are installing telephones faster than the new orders come in. We will get 80,000 telephones from July to December 31 this year, and 80,000 in the first three months of 1946. Western Electric, our manufacturing company, is setting up every machine it has that will make telephone equipment. :In the next 12 months the Bell System expects to install more telephones than there were in /all of France and Belgium before the war. Even that will not give service to everyone who wants it in that time. There are places where we have complicated switchboards to install even places where we must build new buildings for the new switchboards. While there were in August more than 123,000 unfilled orders due to lack of telephone instruments, there w a greater number, about 164,000, unfilled due to shortage of central office facilities. But we are on our way to give service to all who want iton our way to restore Bell Sys- tem standards of service and raise them even higher. We are turmng our facilities back to -clvilian service just as fast as we turned them to the instant needs of war. THE PACIFIC TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY PATEROS, WASHINGTON TELEPHONE PATEROS Ol
