offers a convenient guide to standing broadcasts carried especially for
their political effect.

R  I A   S Tele g hon    M Service
West Berliners may hear three minutes of RIAS news by dialing 253.
This service, believed to have been the first of its kind in the world
(it has since been adopted in Switzerland), attracts approximately
155,000 calls a month from West Berliners.
Prior to the severance of East Sector telephones from the West
Berlin net (June, 1952) more than 300,000 calls a month were registered
by the German Post Office in Berlin,,which operates the service in co-
operation with RIAS.
