We Assure Happy, Healthy Pets Come in browse around t!Sffffs£fsffi^ff^fys^^ Special Arrangements By Illinois Bell To Call Viet Nam Illinois Bell today offered Forest Park residents some advice about exchanging holiday greetings with servicemen in Viet Nam. "It you want to talk to a relative or friend in Viet Nam, arrange to have him _-)lace the call from there," suggested Illinois Bell manager Ken Johnson. "For a variety of reasons it is virtually impossible to reach a particular serviceman by calling from this end," M-. Johnson said. "Nearly all of the calls completed between the two countries originate in Viet Nam but are paid for in this country by having the charges reversed." According to the American Telephone and Telegraph Company's Long Lines Department, special arrangei ents have been made in Viet Nam to help servicemen call home at their convenience. These arrangements were made through the cooperation of the U.S.O., the military, the Bell System and communications people in South Viet Nam and Hong Kong. Many of the calls home are placed from the U.S.O. Center in downtown Saigon. However, calls can also be made from a number of hospitals and service centers at bases in the Vietnamese countryside. Five years ago only about 30 calls a day were being completed over two high frequency radio circuits that were in service four hours daily. These are still the only circuits that handle calls into Viet Nam. But by providing special facilities at the Saigon U.S.O. Center, approximately 25 times as many outgoing calls are now being completed daily. These calls are carried by radio to Hong Kong and then to the U.S.A. on undersea or satellite circuits. Viet Nam Is 14 hours ahead of Central Standard Time.
