When you hear the steady hum-m-m-m, you know that the dial switches are ready to handle your call. , But only the pulls or the dial AFTER you hear the tone do any good. If you start dialing BEFORE the tone is on the line, you will never reach the number you want. Partial dialing—where xggjS^jx part of the number is /frj\^<8\ d . a|ed before thc tone says the equipment is ready—is double trouble. You do not reach the number you are calling, and the dial equipment is tied up so that it cannot handle other calls. Your help during these days of unusually heavy telephoning is important because it means the full capacity of the dial equipment can be used to serve as many waiting customers as possible.
