Bell System for a long time that as it conducted a public business it should tell the public about its conduct. It has endeavored to do this by official reports, public statements, pamphlets, advertisements, movies, by opening the central offices to public inspection, and in many other ways. This book is an addition to what has been done before. There is little in it which is not available in some form or other elsewhere, but bringing it together may be a convenience to those who are interested. As the time which the author owes the American Telephone and Telegraph Company is not limited, the book is written on company time, and such royalties as may come from its sale will go to the Company. The figures in the book have been checked by the various departments of the Company having knowledge of them. The book represents in general the Bell System spolicies and practices. But it is not official in the sense that it has been approved by the heads of all departments of the Company or the Board of Directors. A nd, of course, the opinions in it are the author s. I do not think that they are far different from those of my associates, but I am sure that no two of us would either think exactly alike or express our opinions in the same way. The book is not an attempt to be an exhaustive study of the Bell System, but is primarily an effort to give anyone interested some insight into its philosophy and practices and something of its problems and achievements.
