“QUESTION SHOP” GIVES ANSWER TO ANY TELEPHONED QUERY
Offering to answer any reasonable question telephoned to its office, a firm dealing in general information is said to have set up business in New York City. Subscribers to the service are permitted to put as many queries to the “question shop” as they desire. Each patron is given a code name and. it is reported, can receive aid from the station at any hour of the day or night. It is also claimed that eighty per cent of the queries do not require more than two minutes for an answer.
