RAPID Thermogas Company Swea City To Get Dial Phone System In 1956 Swea City — "Number please!" will soon be a forgotten phrase in the Swea City community. Dial telephones will be a reality within months. The Central Iowa Telephone company, owners of the S\yea City exchange 'and many others in this area, is in the process of converting to the dial system here. A concrete block building to house the electrical equipment is being constructed near the alley back of L. C. Knutsen's implement warehouse and company representatives are negotiating with of fleers'and stockholders of the 26 rural lines concerning purchase of the lines. Whether or not the local holders decide to sell, the phones Will'be dial system throughout. About 600 telephones are. served by the Swea City exchange. Mrs Fred Albers, chief operator, has 8 operators employed in the local office. Wm. Clasen of Buffalo Center is .local manager and R. G. Wilmarth of LeRoy, Minn., is district manager.
