New Chesapeake and Po
tomac Rates Effective
at Midnight Tonight.
Arrangement* are being made by
the Chesapeake and Potomac Tele
phone Company to put into effect at
12:01 a. m. tomorrow- the new Hchedule
of rates for toil calls which was an
nounced December 13. 1918. by the
Postmaster General, and under which
all toll rate? throughout the United
States are placed on a uniform basis.
Under the new schedule a ' "station
j to-station" rate is the basis upon
; which all rates for the various classes
of service are computed. This rate
applies where a toll call Is made from
one telephone to another without
specifying that a particular person is
desired. Tho rate is determned by
the air-line distance between toil
points, and is computed for the initial
talking period on the basis of 5 cents
for each six miles up to twenty-four
mires and 5 cents for each eight
miles beyond tnat distance.
In addition to the ?"station-to-sta
tion" rate, a "person-to-person" rate,
an "appointment" rate, a "messenger
call" rate and a "report charge" are
quoted for calls to points on which
the "station-to-station" rate is 15 cents
. or more.
j The "person-to-person" rate^ for
j calls where a particular person is
i specified. Is about one-fourth greater
than the "station-to-station" rate, j
I The "appointment" rate is about one
' half greater than the "statlon-to
? station ' rate. The "messenger-call"
: rate is the same as the "appointment"
rate, plus any necessary charges for
| messenger service. The "report
I charge" is about one-fourth of the
| "station-to-station" rate, and is made
in connection with all toll calls other
I than those made on a "station-to
l station" basis, where the connection
j is established, but conversation is not
; held because the calling or called
; party is not present, will not talk or
j has no telephone.
| The minimum "person to person" i
rate is 20 cents, the minimum "ap
pointment" rate 25 cents, and the i
minimum "messenger call" rate 251
cents. The minimum "report charge"
| is 10 cents and the maximum $2.00.
New evening and night rates ap
? plying on!y to calls made on a "sta
? tion to station" basis are also quot
? ed. For toll calls made between
! 8:30 p. m. and midnight on a "sta
, tion to station" basis, the rate is
(about one-half the "station to sta
tion" day rate, and for calls mad*
| between midnight and 4:30 a. m. the
Irate is about one-fourth the "sta
tion to station" day rate.
For the purpose of applying night
! rates the time of day at which thu
; "station to station" call originates
' is used. The minimum night rate is
125 cents and day rates apply 6n
"station to station" calls made at
; night when the day rate is less than
j this minimum. Day rates also apply
j on all toll #calls made at night on
j other than a "station to station"
j basis.
I The company points out that
| where telephone directory informa
j tion is available, subscribers call
{ing should specify the telephone call
; number desired in making "station
I to station" toll calls. Where direc
tory information is not available
; at the calling telephone, such "sta
I tion to station" calls will be ac
cepted if the name and address of
J the called subscriber is given. 1

That the era of reconstruction which

The number five, said the speaker, is
typical of this era upon which we are
now entering. The mystic number
three stands for completion and final
ity; four always represents destruc
tion, while five stands foe reconstruc
