FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS Dallas, Texas, March 20, 1930. To all Banks and Trust Companies in the Eleventh Federal Reserve District: SUBJECT: Long Distance Telephone Calls For your convenience in placing long distance telephone calls the tele phone numbers of our offices are as follows: Dallas________________________ „ L D 337 El Paso________________________Main 2040 Houston________________________ LD 173 San Antonio_____________________ LD 173 It is suggested that, when placing calls for any of our offices, wher ever practicable “station to station” service be used. Station to station calls are those on which the party placing the call agrees to talk to anyone who answers the called telephone. Features of station to station calls are that they are completed more quickly, the rates are less than on person to person calls and there are no report charges. In placing a station to station call say, for example, to the long distance operator, “I want Dallas LD 337,” or “El Paso Main 2040,” and when our operator at the office called answers ask for the person or department to whom you wish to talk. Long distance calls can be completed more quickly by using these numbers, even though it is necessary that some particular one of our offi cers be called.. Should it be necessary to place a person to person call say, for example, to your long distance operator, “I want to talk to Mr_______ at Dallas LD 337.” Yours very truly, Governor.
