PENNEY 220-222 W. Main Street :-: IHythcvilJe, Ark. H URRIED whisperings, staccato exclamations, buzzed through tlie New York studios of thc National Broadcasting Corporation during a final rehearsal one evening recently. Thirteen minutes more, and "Thc Empire Builders," aprogramspon- sored by the Great Northern Railway, would "go on the air." Suddenly a protest :"Thatwhistlc'swrongt Who ever heard x train whistle like that?" Startled questions. Quick replies. Confusion. The whistle had bccndcscribcdbythcrail- road, and thc description faithfully followed by thc Sound Effects man. But the clement of doubt, tossed before thc already tense performers, threatened demoralization of thc entire program. One man kept his head. Calmly, even casuilly, Raymond ' Knight*, production manager, reached for the telephone. "Long distance? Give me thc Great Northern Railway at St. Paul, Minnesota. This is an emergency call." "Hold the line, please"—and in less than a minute and a quarter, Knight was talking to thc Great Northern official in charge of thc broadcasting program. "That train whistle, just as it goes into the tunnel—is it right?" Knight asked. "It seems funny *nd shrill to us here. Listen, and I'll Ww it for you." •In hli Icu Kriout GO menu Knight ii "A»bro« j. W«ms" of "St«tioo KUKU." "Thc whistle is all right," pronounced St. Paul and explained: "It's nor a regular steam whistle. It's an air whistle, on an electric train b.tcking into n tunnel. When an electric tr.iin hicks into ;t tunnel time's thc way thc whistle sounds." "O. K.," smiled Knight. And, confidence restored, the program proceeded without a hitch. 111 If you aren't accustomed to using "long distance," you will be surprised .it its speed, clarity, low cost. - Thc best way to prove it is to try it. If yon will nsc thc attached coupon toscnd us.thc names and addresses of fcl.uivcs or friends in other cities, we will send, without obligation to you, an "Out-of-Town Number Book" containing their telephone numbers and quoting thc cost of a three-minute call to each.
