Shortening The Miles It used to be that we could keep in touch with our families mi friends with a chat over the backya fence or a wave and friendly reeting from the front porch. B it seems like people axe moving around morv these days-- from city to city and out-of-state. Some of them settle close enough around Perkins that you can get together frequently on weekends. But others pack up and leave for places hundreds or even a thound miles aWay. Today, however, you can forget the miles that separmt yem-- because of the telephone. A Long Distance call can cover the divne In seconds. You can reach friends or relatives in distant cities Just as fast as you cu set up an over the-fence talk. Calling Long Distance is fast, it's pcrsomd, an d the cost Is low. You can call from Perkins to any place in the United States for less than $2.00. Thzt's the sttion-to-stmtion rate, every night after 6 p m and agl day Sunday. Just Reach When It Rings People tell me from time to time tlutt whenever their tel- plmne rings, it seems they're off in anoth room, and have to make a dash to answer. When this happens, they usually reach the telephone out of breath or maybe with a bruised shin. There's a rcanedy to this situation---an easy low-rust remedy that more people are discovering. You gesse! it---additlon! telephones that a're handy wherever you mltVbe when you hear the famlliv ring. To have telephones so hzdy you can just reach instead of ruaming, call the telephone compaay. The cost for an extension telephone is low: only $1.00 a month, pas tax and , small oue-time Instaliion charge. Call by Number .,. .
