      "The services(military) owned or leased communications comprising 3.4
      million voice channel miles and 6.9 million teletype channel miles.
      The latter alone carried about 110 million messages a year."


      I had overlooked this statement when first posted, & was surprised the ratio was 2-1; I do recall there were more military telegraph circuits than voice grade in Norfolk around 1960.
