Photograph caption dated September 15, 1960 reads, "They keep city informed - Telephone operators Colletta Goff, left, and Metta Helen Goodard are typical of today's mentally alert communications workers. They have demonstrated unusual ability in memorizing telephone numbers, proving today's operator is better trained, better educated than gal who used to keep town informed."
