Kossuth 4-H group to state camp Gar rolls over near Bancroft defensive measures and work closely with police in tracking down the callers. If there is any threat of bodily harm or injury, call the police—as well as the telephone company—immediately. Technical advances have increased the means for identifying the line from which calls are made. The telephone company attempts to identify the line only on the called party's request. Once obtained, Northwestern Bell will reveal it to the called party, or with his consent, to the police. The process of identification does not require listening in on conversations, thus insuring against the invasion of individual privacy. Historical Society seeki helper!
