	That is how it is supposed to work. It'll warn you about

 In recognizing AT&T Bell Laboratories for corporate innovation, for

 Russell C. Drew referred to the cellular telephone as a "basic
 necessity."  How times have changed, one observer remarked: many in
 the room recalled the advent of direct dialing. The Institute, July
