The new DDD long distance service recently initiated by the Midway Telephone Company has been met with enthusiastic approval by subscribers, according to Donald R. Brown, Medford general manager.

Brown said that since the inception of service on December 15, approximately 72 percent of the total long distance calls leaving the Midway service area have been dialed direct by customers. The first three weeks of the new service has seen 22,900 calls dialed direct while only 8,800 calls were placed by the operator.

“This new service,” said Brown, “has been readily accepted by our customers and is being widely used.”
