emergency calls on
party lines— warning:



The law of Alabama provides that any person who fails to relinquish a telephone party
line after he has been requested to do so, to permit another to place a call in an emer-
gency to a fire or police department or for medical aid or ambulance service or any
person who shall request the use of a party line by falsely stating that the same is
needed in an emergency shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Provided, however, such
party Ime at the time of the request is not being used for other emergency calls.
"Emergency" as used means a situation in which property or human life is in jeopardy
and the prompt summoning of aid is essential.

HOW TO USE THE DIAL

1 Wait until you hear the dial tone before you dial.
(If the number you want is not in this directory,
dial Operator and ask for Information.)

^^ Dial the listed number.



TELEPHONE DIRECTORY



CAMDEN-VREDENBURGH



THOAAASTON
ALABAMA



Ringing Signal



A soft "burr-r-ring" repeated at regular intervals
means that the telephone you dialed is ringing.
Give your party time to answer — about 10 rings —
before you hang up.



The Busy Signal



A steady "buzz-buzz-buzz" sound means the
line you called is in use. Hang up and call again
later.



Letter "0"-Numeral "0"

Please be careful not to confuse the letter "O"
with the numeral "0" when dialing.




Calling Another Party
on Your Line

if you are a party line subscriber and wish to
dial another party on your line, it will be neces-
sary to dial a special code number, instead of the
regular telephone number listed In the directory.

If you dial the Directory number of other parties
who are on your line, you will get a busy signal.
Therefore, if you keep getting a busy signal when
calling a nearby telephone, it may indicate that
they are on your line. You should then consult
the card which the Telephone Company will furnish
you in order to determine the special code number
of the party you wish to call.

After you have finished dialing the code number,
hang up your receiver. Your bell, as well as the
bell of the party you ore calling, will both ring at
intervals. When the dialed party answers, your
bell will stop ringing. You should then again lift
the receiver and talk to the party you have called.

If the called party does not answer within 2 to
4 minutes, the ringing will automatically stop.

ADDITIONAL ASSISTANCE IN DIALING

If the above instructions ot9 not clear, notify
the Telephone Company and we will send some-
one to help you learn to dial.

area codes speed your
iong distance caiis




1



The U. S. and Canada are divided into more than
120 telephone areas. Each area has a 3 figure area
code. Your area code is 205 (see map). The area
code of the telephone you are calling should be
given to the operator if it is different from the area
code of the telephone you are using. It should not
be used if it is the same. (When placing call with
operator, say, for example, "I want Area Code 312
555-2364." — When you give someone your telephone
number, include your area code if he needs it to
return your call. — A list of selected area codes is on
page 3.
