Party-line service is gooc/ service when those on the line co-operate to make it so. Here are some of the 'things you' can do' to get the greatest value from your party line: I — When you have several calls to make, allow a little time between them. That gives others on the line an opportunity to make or receive calls. 2—If the line is in use when you try to call, hang up quietly. Wait awhile before trying again. 3—If you have children, teach them party-line courtesy, too. Your courtesy and consideration will encourage others on the line to follow your good example. When everyone is trying to co-operate, everyone has better service. We're working hard lo serve everybody waiting for a telephone Our first job is to provide) service for everyone iVho is \Vaiting. It takes time to make and install thc complicated switchboards that are needed, but we're making progress. Not until everybody waiting is served will we be able to install the additional equipment needed to furnish indi- yiduaVlincs to those who need and want them. SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE CO.
