' Shakespeare. 10 flew Rates Established for Long Distance Calls Charges Quoted Are Based On ' Different Kinds of Service Provided This company has put into effect "retroactive to May 21, new regulations governing charges for long distance telephone calls. These regulations are the same as hav6""been in effect for . inter-state telephone calls since January 21. They have not been " put in force before because dnly recently the United States court fixed the authority for making telephone rates within the state. - ' The principal change from the former method of determining long distance telephone rates is that instead-of one class of serv- -'"'ice there are several, each with a different rate. For example, there is to be one rate for "station to station" calls when anyone at ascertain telephone is wanted, another rate for "person to person" calls when a definite party is desired, another for "appointment" calls, for night calls, and so on. Basi of Rate. The basis of all charges on long distance telephone calls is s the "station to station" rate. This is determined by the air line distance between towns. The rate is computed for the initial period of conversation op the basis of 5 cents for each six miles up to 24 miles and 5 cents for each eight miles beyond that dis tance. "Statipn to Station" Service The "station to station" rate applies when the calling party . does not ask to talk to a particular person at the telephone designated, but merely to anyone who answers the telephone. The word "station" as used here means "telephone," the service being a telephone to telephone method. "Station to station" calls must be made either by giving the telephone number wanted or the name or address under which the telephone is listed. If the calling party states that he wishes to talk to a definite person, the "person to person" rate, which is higher, is charged. Charges for "station to station" calls ' cannot be reversed, that is, they cannot be charged to the tele-, phone called. The "station to station" service is the cheapest and quickest ' form of long distance communication. It is furnished at a lower rate than other classes of service because it requires less work on the part of the long distance operators and "ties up" the wires for a shorter period than when a particular party must be summoned to the telephone. , "Person to Person" Service When a toll call is made, specifying that conversation is da sired with a particular person and the connection is establ;hed and conversation held with that person, the "person to person" rate applies. As this service requires a greater amount of operating effort " and holds the wires for a longer period than "station to station" calls because a partular party must be brought to the telephone before a conversation is held, the rate for such Calls is abou: one-fourth greater than the "station to station" rate. "Appointment Rate When the calling party in placing his call appoints a definite Specified time at which he will talk on a "person to person" basis and the conversation is held accordingly, the "appointment" ratt applies. The Vappointment" rate is about one-half greater than the "station to station" rate. , "Messenger" Call When a call is made on a "person to person" basis and a messenger is required to secure attendance of the designated person at a public pay station at thi 'distant point, the "messenger call" rate applies. This rate is the same as the "appointment" rate for the same distance, plus any charge for messenger service. Messenger charges incurred are to be paid even though the desired conversation is not held. V "Report Charge" The "report charge" applies when a "person to person" call, ' an "appointment" call or a "messenger" call is made and that particular person desired is not in or will not talk, or when' the right-telephone address of the particular person desired has not been given and he cannot be reached at a telephone within one hour. Such a charge also applies if the calling party is absent when the connection is completed within one hour, or if he refuses to talk. The cost of handling a call where we are unable to locate the party called, is nearly as great as ;when the person is found and the conversation held. -The "report charge" covers a portion of the expense. , ' The rate for a report charge is about one-fourth the "station to station" rate. "Collect Call." "Collect calls" are calls for which the charges are reversed; that is, are to be collected from the subscriber at the distant station at which the call ij competed. "Collect calls," or reversed, charges, are not allowed in con nection with "station to station" calls but are with other classes of service. ' Standard Toll Night Rate The following rates are charged for night service on a "sta tion to station" basis. Night rates do not apply to other classes of service : . 8:30 p. m. to 12-midnight About one-half of the "station to station" day rate. 12 :00 midnight to 4 :30 a. m. About one-quarter of the "sta tion to station" day rate. , ' ' The minimum night rate is 25 cents. Day rates apply on calls made at night when the "station to station" charge is less than the minimum night rate. ' Example Showing How 'the' Method is Applied Following are examples for a call about ISO miles distant: "Station tostation" rate. .. .$1.00 Completed "person to per son" rate .....1.25 Completed "appointment" rate 1.50 Completed "messenger call" rat 1.60 "Plus messenger charges. The lowest "person to person" rate quoted is 5 cents, the minimum "appointment" rate is 20 cents, the minimum "mes senger call" rate is 20 cents and the minimum "report charge" is 5 cents. On "station to station" calls, where the rate is 25 cents or less, an initial talking period of 5 minutes is permitted without extra charge. Where -the rate is higher the initial period is 3 minutes. Oft' "person to person" calls, "appointment" calls arid "messen ger calls the initial talking period , The rate for any class of service may be obtained from the long distance operator. - NEBRASKA TELEPHONE COMPANY wuv niTt DRs E.

Seen by itself, Swift & Company is one 6f the largest manufacturers and distributers of animal food products in the country. Seen in relation to the total food busi ness of the world, its size diminishes to small proportions. We handle only about 22 per cent of "the total output of the hundreds of pack ing plants under federal inspection, and only about 12 per cent of the total meat supply of the nation. ' We handle only about 6 per cent of the total quantity of butter, eggs, and poul try sent to market in the United States. Our tanneries handle less than 15 per cent of the hides made into leather in the United States. Our soap factories make less than 10 per cent of the soap output of the nation. This is done in keen: and open competition with every concern handling these products, and at a profit of a fraction of a cent-per pound. x . - In the meat packing industry there is no one dominant concern handling a large proportion of th output.

Take this big wolf-hound for example being cuddled by pretty Lila Lee, is just the. order of the day with him, and not any particular day at that.

Dogs, barnyard fowl, country woods and meadows that's what Lila loves; perhaps a childhood in Union Hill, N.

His Useless Bluff. One day a barber shop had but one empty chair. A man wearing a very big hat and walking with great deal of swagger, entered, hung his hat on a peg, and then drawing a revolver he turned to the idle man and said: "I want a shave just a common shave. I want no talk. Don't ask me if you want a hair cut or a shampoo. Don't speak of the weather or politics. .If you speak to me 1 11 shoot. He took the chair, held the revol ver across his legs, and was shaved with promptness and dispatch When he got up he returned the shooter to his hip pocket, put on his hat, .and after a broad chuckle he said to the cashier: "That's the way to keep the bar ber quiet. He didn't utter a word." "No, sir he couldn't." "Couldn't?" ' No, sir, he's deaf and dumb." Argonaut. When buying a ham ask for a short ham these are considered the best.

Dear Miss Fairfax, Omaha Bee: f have been a reader of the "Love lorn" column for some time. Some few days ago a young widow of 22 with two little girls, said she was lonely and would like to hear from somebody that was lonely and would like to hear from some new friends. , I am a widower of 28 with two small boys, ages 7 and 3, a farmer on a small farm in western Ne braska, y Would like to share my humble home with some lonely widow or miss somewhere near my age.

But it is better for girls, whose tastes and influence should always be in the upward di rection, not to adopt offensive or ridiculous designations, such as "Skinny," "Rer," "Shorty," "Crip," and so on.
