Thus, while most calls still go through quickly and accurately, occasionally you may find the dial tone is delayed. This is most likely to occur only at the busy hours of the telephone day, midmorning or late afternoon. If you will make sure, please, that you hear the dial's "hum-m-m" before you dial, it will help you avoid wrong numbers or no connection at all. And, if you can make your calls brief, or, better yet, make only necessary cafts at these particular times, you will find fewer delays. This emergency crowding is temporary, while we are getting more equipment to serve everyone waiting and to make, telephone service better than ever.
