1954 TELEPHONE DIRECTORY, HUMESTON, IOWA








HUMESTON  TELEPHONE CO. INCORPORATED











This company assumes no liability for suspension of

service caused by accidents, weather or other conditions beyond our control, nor for errors or


omissions in this directory.


 




In case of FIRE call the operator and give your name and location of the fire.  Stay on the line until she has


the complete information.  The operator will sound


the alarm a series of up and down tones for a town

fire or two (2) long tones for a rural file.



As the Firemen must know the location of the fire their swithboard numbers have a special marking and until they have all been answered the operator cannot give out information to the dozens of others who always rush to the telephone at the sound of an alarm
