Campus Telephone Exchanges
Proposed by Phone Company
A formal proposal for installing1
special intra-campus telephone ex
change has been sent by the Pa
cific Telephone and Telegraph
company to the University of Ore

university. The plan was offered by
the PT&T as a partial remedy for
the pay telephone problem.
The proposed exchange would be
set up as follows:
1. Students in living organiza
tions could call any other living
organization or campus number
from a regular dial telephone.
2. Incoming calls from off-cam
pus phones could be received
through this exchange; however,
calls to downtown points or other
off-campus phones would have to
be placed through the present pay
telephones in each living organiza
3. The company estimates that
this service would cost $3.50 per
month in sororities and fraterni
ties, and $3 per month in dormito
ries for each telephone installed.
The installation charge would he
$3 per phone.
4. The additional private branch
exchange equipment which would
have to be installed on the campus
would not increase charges for
each line in excess cf $1.25 per
month over the above figures.
If incoming calls are to be re
ceived from non-campus phones
over these special lines, the Uni
versity would have to install addi
tional equipment to handle it.
Adoption of this feature of the
service is left to the discretion of
the University, phone company of
Also, the phone company will
furnish individual flat rate busi
ness service to individual rooms In

resident of that room.
This proposal was first advanced
