Vintage Bell Telephone Ad It may have been a desirable job but it was not an easy one. Telephone companies had strict rules for all aspects of operators' behavior on the job. Merely to get the job, a woman had to pass height, weight, and arm length tests to ensure that she could work in the tight quarters afforded switchboard operators. Operators had to sit with perfect posture for long hours in straight-backed chairs. They were not permitted to communicate with each other. They were to respond quickly, efficiently, and patiently ó even when dealing with the most irascible customers...

Featured Member  Naomi Iím a transplanted yankee from the Bensonhurst area of Brooklyn NY . Iíve lived in Florida since I was 8, when my family dragged my sister and I out of Bíkln and down to MiamiÖ..but Iím NOT a Florida Cracker! Iíll be a Yankee until my dying day and proud of it. My blood is comprised of 60% olive oil, and 40% chicken soup. In June of í65 I graduated from High School and met my husband Larry, who was a radar operator for the USAF, a few months later, and the rest is history..weíve been married for 43 years and have three great kids: David, Jessica and Kimberly. My first job after graduation was as an operator with Southern Bell , when you could actually dial 0 or 411 and get a live person. Over the years (before I retired) I worked mostly secretarial jobs, my longest being at the University of Florida, and my last being at a correctional facility for youthful offenders. In 1980 I had an editorial column in our local paper, which lasted a few years. Iím mother to a 100 lb golden retriever named Buddy-Beans, a 27 yr old cockatiel named Beeper and at least 500 wild birds and other assorted wildlife that I feed and spoil on 8 Ĺ acres that we call ďClackumís CornerĒ. Even though I was raised in the city, I love living in the country now and could never go back to the noise. Iíve been an animal lover ever since I was a child, and Iím now referred to by the neighbors as that crazy bird lady. After my family, my greatest pleasures are wildlife photography and writing.

Nudist Camp Proprietor on Whats My Line From 1953, Yolande Reed, the operator of a nudist camp, is a contestant on What's My Line. Hilarity ensues. Listen to the audience's shocked reaction when they learn her occupation. Remember, this was scandalous stuff by the standards of the early 1950s!

Kenneth Washington Kenneth Washington is another Hogan's Heroes cast member who is still alive. Washington, now 65, played Corporal Richard Baker in the final season of Hogan's Heroes (1970-71). He effectively replaced Ivan Dixon (Sergeant James Kinchloe) who had left the cast after the show's fifth season. Baker assumed Kinchloe's role as the heroes' radio operator. During the show, no explanation was ever offered as to what happened to Kinchloe or how Baker became part of the heroes. That's kind of odd when Stalag 13 was supposedly an escape-proof POW camp! Perhaps CBS hoped nobody would notice the change!
