DAILY AND ALL DAY SUNDAY WHEN YOU DIAL YOUR OWN CALL OR CALL STATION-TO-STATION. More lines... more convenience when long distance calls are spaced over the festive season. Too many people have the same nice idea on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Circuits get overloaded, calls are delayed. Why spend The Day waiting around to complete your call? It'll mean just as much (and be lots easier) later in the festive week. (The times when lines are loaded and delays occur are: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's.) Make your festive long distance calls easier -on us and on yourself! 1. Make a list now of phone numbers including area codes of those you plan to call. 2. To obtain numbers within Alberta which you don't know, dial 1 555-1212. 3. For out-of-province numbers, dial 1 area code 4- 555-1212. Just tell the Operator the name of the place and the name of the people you wish to call. 4. Whenever possible, dial your calls direct!
