General Instructions

    Call by Number only. For parties not listed in the directory ask for "information" for the number.

    Separate Figures when making a call, giving one number at a time. For Black 1450, you should say "Black one-four-five-oh."

    Speak Distinctly, in an ordinary tone. Talk directly into the transmitter, with the lips about one inch from the mouthpiece.

    Don't Say "Hello!" when your telephone bell rings, answer by giving your name as "John Smith talking-." It is both courteous and direct and saves your time and ours.

    For Long Distance, call "Central' in the usual way and ask for "Long Distance." When she answers give your name and telephone number, and the name, telephone number and address of the party to whom you desire to talk.

    Toll Charges are based on a three minute talk. An additional charge will be made for each extra minute or fraction thereof. Subscribers are responsible for all calls originating at their telephones.   

    Night Rates for service over the lines of this Company are approximately one-half day rates, but the night rate in no case will be less than 25 cents unless the day rate is less. Night rates for inter-state service are the same as day rates.

    No Liability is assumed by this company for errors or omissions in this directory. The company reserves the right to change any number at any time.
