Newyellow pages offer,
more for advertisers
By J oltn Mcissner
Cries of The new phone books are here!" will soon
occur biannually, and the Lincoln Telephone and
Telegraph Company's monopoly on phone books
The Nebraska Directory Company is compiling a
telephone book due out later this year.
Rex Story, part-owner of the year-old business,
predicts a good reception for his version, which also
contains yellow, white and blue pages.
Lincoln needs another phone directory, he said,
because Lincoln businessmen need an alternative to
the rates they now pay for advertising in the LTT
yellow pages. '
"NDC can charge 48 percent of what the tele
phone company charges for yellow page ads and
still make a profit." .
As an example, Story said a half-column ad in his
company's phone book costs $52 a month, while a
corresponding ad in the present book costs $105 a
Russ's IGA store manager Rich Malousek said the
new directory's prices were the best thing that ever
happened." He plans to stop advertising in the pres
ent phone book.
"I think the phone company is going to find them
selves with a very slender phone book next year,"
Edward Wood, president of Wood Brothers buid
ing products company, said that because the yellow
pages are his company's only means of advertising,
he probably would advertise in both books. This
would guarantee saturation of the market, he said.
Art Thompson of LTT said he didn't know what
effect the new book would have because it isn't out
yet. He said LTT has published a phone book since
1903 and has done the job well.
