A Light Forever Burning A Voice That Is Never Stilled Night comes on and spreads a blanket of darkness upon sleep ing cities and towns. Here and there a lone policeman. In the distance a clock tolling the hour. In the dark silence of the night there is one light forever burn ing . . . a voice that is never stilled. That light is the light in the telephone exchange. That voice is the voice of your telephone. Its very presence gives a feeling of security and of nearness to everyone. Whatever the need or the hour, the telephone is always ready to serve you-quickly, dependably, and at small cost. BELL TELEPHONE SYSTEM LOCAL to serve the community. NATIONWIDE to serve the nation.
