‘Hello Girls’ Want Air Conditioning
Steubenville, Ohio - Phone company officials planned to meet today to 130 toll operators who say they won’t return to work until air-conditioned quarters are provided.
  The operators walked out of the Ohio Bell office in 90-degree temperatures yesterday and said:  “You can put more clothes on to keep warm, but you can’t take enough off to keep cool.”  The operators, who said fans were too noisy for them to hear calls, emphasized that the union was not involved in the strike.  Long distance calls were being handled on an emergency basis by supervisory employees [Chillicothe Gazette, July 15, 1954 - CM - Sub by FoFG]
