Employment For Blind - A West Coast Phone Aim A new ,avenue of hope for blind persons seeking employment has been opened .by the West Coast Telephone Company which recent- ly brought to completion a series of experimerts to determine the :ability of sightless persons to work as DDD identifying operators. Suc- cess of the tests has resulted in the telephone company's employment of Mrs. Mertis Bergevin, 30-year- old Everett widow, believed to be the first ,sightless person ever em- ployed as a telephone operator. Mrs. Bergevkn, a petite blonde with a ready smile, began her tain- ing as a DDD identifying operator on May 23. The young mother of three small children is expected to 'be ready to take her regular place in West Coasts Everett traffic of- rice by June 6. The series of events hich led up to the hiring of Mrs. Bergevin be- gan early this year when Ross An-. dersoa, West Coast controller and president of the Central Lions Club of Everett, called D. A. Perigo, the Company's traffic superinten- dent, to inquire of the possibilities for employing ,blind persons. "I was just over n tbe traffic office," Anderson said, "watching the girls handling the DDD identify- ng calls. Can't a ,blind person do that?" In the months that have passed since that phone Gall, a great deal of activity has taken place. First, Anderson's proposal was discussed thoroughly by the telephone com- pany's traffic training people and engineering staff Company engi- neers then set about developing and constructing a special portable trainging set for use m training sightless persons as identifying op- erators. Much of the success of the ex- periments is attributed to the ef- forts of the wife of one of West Coast's executives who, blind her- self, offered to ,act as test student for the study "I went out of town the day her training started," Traffic Superin- tendent Perigo recalled, "and when I returned I found the training su- pervisor so enthusiastic she could hardly contain herself. But I still had "to be shown, so I went along to witness one of the training ses- sions. Frankly, I too was amazed at the speed and accuracy with which the blind operator could handle the calls ,after only a few hours of trairdng." Soon the test student progressed to the actual handfing of commer- cial traffic. If there were any doubts as to her ability, they were quickly dispelled .at this point for, as the traffic chelf put it, she took to the wrk like a duck to water. "The experiments," he said, "have been a revelation to all who have witnessed them. It s unfor- tunate, but true that there is a strong tendency on the ,part of those who are not handicapped to ,be only sympathetic. Our experiments have shown how wrong this attitude is. The handicapped eed opportunity rather than sympathy and we feel it our obligation to the commtmity to use handicapped persons when- ever and wherever we can."
