Don't "Jiggle" the Hook There are two ways to recall the telephone oper ator when you are making a telephone call. The wrong way is to "jiggle" the hook so rap idly that the tiny electric lamp that signals the operator in the Central Office does not remain lighted long enough to attract the operator's attention. The right way is to move the receiver hook up and down slowly, so that the light will glow and the operator will know that you are calling her. The right way saves your time and patience It adds to the speed with which the operator can serve you. It helps improve the quality of your telephone service generally. Always move the receiver hook up and down Slowly to recall the operator. It is the correct NEW The Week in the War.
