. ft/ BOS WELLS Ik Mystery-Man's Days Numl)ercd One of the services this column tries to render to its clients is keeping them informed on the current status situation. Does a Mercedes 300 SL rank a Cadillac? Is a corner office without a silver water carafe and tray still worth more prestige than the same size office not on a comer but with a silver water carafe? The protocol of status is t very difficult thing to keep up with, I teQ you. What's in today is | frequently out tomorrow. Take enlisted telephone numbers, for instance. There was a time. when it was very chic, (oob, sorry -- that's an out word, right now) to have an unlisted phone number. It was in to be out of the book. Sol many people demanded WELLS unlisted numbers the phone company in New York started charging extra for them and other local units of the Telephone Trust pondered the same move. Of course, as with so many status symbols, there was a solid bit of logic behind the unlisted number. Commercial characters were renting reverse or street directories from the phone companies and pestering subscribers with telephone pitches. But an unlisted number won't keep you safe from telephone commercials anymore. Now they have automatic dialers that will call every number in an exchange--listed or unlisted. Just Look in Hook The trend among the stylish is to pet away from the masses -- most of whom now have unlisted numbers -and to climb back with the select few who have their numbers listed in the phone directory. In short, it's becoming in to be in. Don't take my word for it. Check the names of Long Beach civic, business and social leaders ia the phone '»·"»"» ; ** -*· * v* F, '· directory. You'll find lots of them listed. The mayor's in there and the city manager and, oh, lots of people- Let's hope what happened to the mayor of Indianapolis recently doesn't happen to ours. According to Bill Wildhack of the Indianapolis News. Mayor John Barton's phone rang and rang about 2 ajn. Finally, the disgusted mayor climbed out of bed and answered it. "Is this Mayor Barton?" the man at the other end of the line asked. -Yes.-I plan to call you tomorrow," the man said, "and I wanted to be sure this was the right number." Beau I y Phone-Deep A ' Belmont Shore beauty salon wishes something like that would happen to it. It opened up not too long ago--too late to be listed in the regular telephone directory, but the owners presumed it was listed with Information. Customers called Information for the number of the salon, but were told it wasn't listed. The owners protested -after an, they were paying their phone bills--but still can't get Information to give their number to customers who ask. So for some silly reason the owners called me. Anybody want to know the number of the Mar-Vel Beauty Salon? Thought for Today After the Beatles, don't let your teen-ager ever again complain about "long-hair music."
