          A Voice
     of Experience
        behind the
"Voice with a Smile"
JEAN BULLENE LENDS AN ASSIST. As a supervisor in the Garden
Grove, Calif., telephone office, Jean conducts training and works
with her group of operators in providing the best possible service.
  Day and night in your telephone company
central office there are courteous, efficient
women like Jean Bullene to help handle any
unusual situation, and make sure your calls
go through quickly and easily.
  Know-how and team spirit make Jean
(Mrs. Jack) Bullene well suited for her re-
sponsible job.
  She helps train new telephone operators
and is ready with immediate answers to anv
questions that arise in connection with local
and long distance calls.
  She's a Voice of Experience behind the
Voice with a Smile.
  "I love this work," says Jean, "because I
get a real feeling that I'm helping people in
a very personal way. I know how important
their telephone messages are and I'm proud
to have a hand in keeping my neighbors in
touch with family and friends here in Garden
Grove and out of town."
  Jean combines her telephone company
work with a neighborly role in her community.
  As you can well imagine, Jean never has
time to be lonely. But on the subject of lone-
liness she has this to sav: "No one ever needs
to be alone when there's a telephone handy.
It's so easy to keep in touch with your neigh-
bors or friends who are miles away."
