25 NEW TELEPHONES IN CITY DIRECTORY
The work of distributing the new telephone directories recently printed by the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co., office here for Yankton, Gayville, Lesterville and Tabor, has been completed, according to E. B. Wilson, manager.
The new directory shows that there has been an addition of 25 new telephones since the last directory was printed last year about this time, Manager Wilson stated.
Telephone statistics in possession of Manager Wilson show that at the present time there are over 19,500,000 telephones in use in the United States which outranks all other countries in the world with 14.39 telephones for each 100 of the population.
I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
