This method is effective September 1? In making calls of this kind it will only be neces? sary to give the local operator the number wanted, for instance, Norfolk 123, or Hampton 123.

On a call of this kind we do not undertake to get a particular party to the Telephone. If a particular party is wanted, if the call is to be reversed, or if an appointment call is to be made, "Long Distance*9 should be called in the usual way. This service will prove of particular advantage to business men and others who have occasion to talk frequently to these cities.
