Phone Project About Done A $38,000 telephone project now under way will provide for more telephones, handle more calls and speed long distance calls for most Algona customers, according to John Claude, Northwestern Bell manager. Telephones in use now total 4,250, an increase of 100 in the year of 1966. The total is over 1,000 more than when dial service was introduced here in 1957. Meanwhile, one day's average number of calls has climbed to more than 20,000. The equipment being added to the system now will increase the call-carrying capacity of the equipment as well as permit the connection of more telephones. The current $38,000 project does not include the cost of lines outside the building or on the customer's premises, Claude said. The equipment is being installed here by seven technicians of the Western Electric Co., under the supervisor) of Mike Furlick, Sioux City. Western Electric Is equipment manufacturer and installation branch of the Bell System. Upon completion of the project, about Feb. 18, there will be an added feature on most customer dialed long distance calls. The calling number will be automatically recorded on calls from one-party and two- party line customers. Several seconds will be saved on each call. At present, on all calls, an operator is signaled as dialing is completed. The call is delayed while she obtains the number and records it. Claude said that about 1,150 long distance calls are dialed by customers on an average day. For DHice Supplies and Metal Business Furniture visit the Office Supply Dept. of THE UPPER DBS MOINES PUB.
