To call another telephone the selector switch is rotated to the desired position, receiver is lifted to the ear and ringing button depressed.  The internal tatler provides an audible indication that the bell at the distant end is ringing.  Non-operation of the tatler indicates that the called telephone is engaged, thus no time need be wasted awaiting answer.

There is no need to reset rotary switch after the call is finished.  Complete secrecy is assured with this system.
