The Bee's Special Edition
For Ak-Sar-Ben Makes a Hit
Compliments galore were elicited
by The Bee's magnificent special Ak-Sar-Ben
edition, one of the biggest
ever put out by an Omaha newspaper.
I he paper consisted of nine sec
tions aggregating eighty-six pages,

Each complete newspaper weighed
trifle over one and one-fourth
pounds and the total of print paper
required or the edition was in excess
of thirty-three tons. Had it all gone
to subscribers through the mails the
postage on it at the second class rate
of 1 cent a pound would have been
close to $675.
As it was, the local distribution
made it necessary to send the issue
out to ThevBee's branch city offices
in sections and most of the carrier
boys had to make two or three trips
to deliver their routes.

"Tyler Three One-Hundred!"
Easy to remember and easy to say.
For these reasons Your Electric Service Company has
changed its' telephone number from Douglas 1062 to Tyler Three
The new issue of the telephone directory, dated today, will
note this change, and the Nebraska Power Company number is
now Tyler Three One Hundred,
This will not only be easier for the patrons of the company
to keep, in mind, but will also mark a new era in the handling
of telephonie communications, on our part.
Tyler Three One Hundred will reach all departments and de
partment heads of Your Electric Service Company, and experi
enced private branch exchange operators will sift all calls and see
v that the proper party or office is reached to attend to the busi
ness at hand.
It is hoped that the users of current or those having busi
ness of any sort with the company will make general use of the
telephone under the new system, and wc hope to demonstrate
complete ability to attend to all matters coming to our attention
over the wire, with increased alacrity and with satisfaction to all,
In the near future Your Electric Service Company will de
tail, in other articles, the advantages of using the telephone in
connection with its business and service, but in the meantime
begin to remember the new number
