Unt liKk. ClIK. Taun.. **n» «, ml INOEf ENOENT-?«9« A-3 B/ B08 WELLS ' ·-?.-, Everyone's a Bit Confused This is to report that the 1963 Yearbook of the Worldbook Encyclopedia is hot off the press. And on Page 253 it carries the name of Long * I Beach's Congressman Craig Hosmer. Only--how come it identifies him as i Democrat? No, Genevieve. I won't sign a petition. The Worklbook people are red- faced over the error, but that's no reason for them to be investigated. Out of Tins World Cones now Andy Park with his own tale of Adventures With the Telephone Company. It's an incredible s t o r y , but Andy swears it's true. Futrhemore, he s a y s he's willing to take a lie- detector test. Howsoever. I don't put much stock in that because he knows full wen that Bear Bryant, Wafly Butts and the Saturday Evening Post between them have WEILS every lie detector in the country leased for the next three months. Late Tuesday afternoon Andy's home phone went out. No friendly dial tone. no link with the great big world outside. So Andy hurried off to the nearest pay phone, hoping to get service restored before he missed his chance to guess the first President of the U-S. on a telephone quiz, thus winning an unbelievable discount on a solid stainless steel silver service set He dialed "Q," explained his problem and she told him to call lit for repair service. -I caned 114," Andy said. "A man answered. He said, "What is your phone numberr I told him--J35-2603. Is that GArfield or HEmlock, he asked. With a flash of genius, I told him it was neither. It was just plain 435 on the dial. ""Well,' he said, 'are you in the GArfield or the HEmlock districtr " 'How'n'ell do I know?" I said. "He gets real huffy, tells me to call HE 5-0007 and teU them my troubles. He sayi he can do nothing from repair service unless he knows what district I'm in. -I call HE 5-0007. Another guy answers, 'Maintenance service.' I tell him my problems. He cuts me short by asking, 'How did you get this number?" I tell him. " "Call repair service back.* he teuj me. 'and tell those dimwits to quit referring you up here.* -I ponder this and say, "Couldn't you call them for me? You see, I don't know whether Tm a GArfield or a HEmlock, and I'd just stir up trouble if . . .* -He says, 'Sorry' and hangs up. This time I don't get my dime back. Blame It on Bell ·I am desperate. 1 have visions of a television rating sen-ice calling my home to find out what program am I watching. They don't get me. natch, because my phone is on the blink--so next year 'Huckleberry Hound* folds for lack of viewer interest. "I put a quarter ta the phone, call the operator, ask for her supervisor, and tell her my woes. She asks my address and confides that I'm in the HEmlock district. I write it down. I don't want to go through this again. She says shell get phone working, never fear. "By the time I get home, the phone is fixed. I call the supervisor--a Miss Vandevoor--back to thank her for her good deed, cheery voice, and inspiring example to youth, - 'By the way.* I ask, "isn't all- number caning supposed to simplify rather than confuse?* -She says, 'I wish I knew. This whole thing is something the Bell System invented, anyway.* "By then I'm laughing so hard, I go get drunk."
