The members of the George Lindsay family between Waupaca and Manawa received Christmas greetings at their home over the telephone from Dr. W.C.Lindsay. The call was relayed through Seatle, Wash., and completed in Manawa. The conversation could be heard clearly, and was the longest call ever received through the Manawa Telephone Exchange.
There are quit a few articles in this same paper about this Lindsay family. If your interested, let me know.
