what does"telephone subordinates" mean? does it mean "call his subordinates?" 【There, five miles up in the sky, his polished shoes resting on a blue rug adorned with a golden eagle and thirteen gold stars, President Kennedy could hold conferences and telephone subordinates as easily as though he were in his Castle's West Wing.】

"telephone" is a verb here. To telephone means to call. Sitting in the plane, President Kennedy could easily talk on the telephone with his subordinates with as much ease as he could do it in his castle.
