Automatic Dialing Makes Phone Calls Easy
Operation of the dial telephone is made easier by an automatic unit introduced in London. The numbers which the subscriber calls most frequently are printed on a list on top of the device. These numbers are conveyed by notches on a disk inside the machine to the automatic dialing unit. To telephone, the subscriber sets a pointer to the name of the person he wishes to call and presses a lever. The machine does the rest.
