Many Big Moments begin with a Familiar Ring Often it's a call you've hoped for and waited for. From someone dear or about something especially important ,to you. Then suddenly there's a familiar ring. And everything's just wonderful! Many's the time you would have paid the telephone bill for a whole month and more-for that one call. Whenever the telephone rings, it's a reminder of its double value. It keeps you in touch with other people. Helps other people keep in touch with you. Some days the calls you get are even more important than those you make. Yet the cost of this two-way service is small. Less than a penny an hour for the average family.
