Gramps does not like much. He especially does not fancy the idea of the new dial phones that are soon to replace the old phones in town. Indignant he calls up his friend and we see the way phones worked before the dial telephone replaced them. Gramps' questioning of the new phones falls along the lines of, 'why change something that is not broken?' He learns the answer to this question, and many more, when forced to a town meeting held to explain how to use the new dial phones and what they mean for the community.
