A large number of Mason City residents joined,with othe^radio listeners thruout America Monday night in listening to the broadcast- Ing- at the dinner given Ralph T. O'Neil, national commander of the American Legion, by the Canadian Legion at Montreal. Mason City's big interest in the event was thai Col. Hanford MacNider, Unitec States minister to Canada, was toastraaster of the occasion. Colonel MacNider's tribute to the Canadian expeditionary forces, his contention that the United '.States and Canada together must provide the leadership the world now needs and particularly the reference to the fact that his sons were becoming staunch Canadians drew thunderous applause from those at the dinner. The Masoa City man stated that his father h,ad come from Canada and added facetiously that now his three sons were being drilled by a Canadian sergeant major and were becoming so adept that they even doubted their father's ability to teach them anything. The colonel referred to one incident when he had lined up the three boys at a place where the prime minister was to pass and instructed them that he would give them the I signal when to salute. Aa the prime minister approached he nudged the oldest one and he nudged the nex ! one. The two oldest got their cue and saluted magnificently, but the youngest, when nudged forgot himself, and looking up at the prime minister yelled, "Oh Canada." Commander O'Neil when introduced by Colonel'MacNider paid a number of tributes to the Mason Cityan, declaring that the United States, having more than ordinary affection for Canada, sent the best it had as minister. Following Commander O'Neil on the program was Lieut. Col. Leo R. LaFleche, head of the Canadian Legion, who had attended the national convention of the American Legion at Boston with Col. MacNider last fall. The Legion conventions, he said, were very "strenuous" affairs. The N. B. C. network, which broadcast the program, disconnected Montreal at 9 o'clock, half an. hour after the opening of the program before the Canadian had finished his address. The famous Canadian nationa pipers' band and the grenadie guard's band were also heard as they gave short numbers between addresses,. ', · ' , · · · . .

Instructions posted near the telephone included the advice: "Don't talk with your ear or listen with your mouth." To remove th'e cause for this confusion, it soon became the practice to equip telephone sets with a pair of combination receivers and transmitters, shaped much like a modern receiver. Either of these could be held to the mouth for talking or to the ear for listening. In a few years, 'desk telephones were developed,.. continued improvements have resulted in the telephones of today . . . ihe wall, the desk and the hand telephones, all as convenient and efficient as it so far has been possible to make them.
