FIGURE 5*While some architects may, under the proper circumstances, prefer to design the booths themselves, many more, however, take advantage of the complete booths which are available trom distributors oi telephone supplies. such as the Graybar Electric Company. One such more or less standard booth is shown here, with the outside and inside dimensions of a single unit, and the overall widths of multiple installations of two to five units. Such booths can be recessed in walls or partitions and, by applying coniorming trim, made to appear as a part of the building. As an alternative procedure. essential parts such as the booth ltont with tolding door. door guide, ceiling light. and linkage lor placing the

light switch under control of the door may be procured and used in iabricating the booths locally. The booths can be lined with any suitable material which tits in with the plans for decoration. It may be mentioned. however, that general experience has indicated the superiority of lining materials which resist scratching and which do not conspicuously show pencil marks. Folding doors with lull-length glass panels are generally prelerable. Since they told within the booth, such doors present none ol the hazards ot outward swinging doors. The design should be such as to avoid the possibility of finger pinching. There should be adequate clearance between the open door and the coin collector to prevent any accidents.
