In reference to the claim Bell Atlantic made for not donating wire more.
You should contact they in writing and tell them that you will sign a letter
that will insure you will not hold them responsible for any injury that will
occur from the use of the wire. Every school should and must carry
insurance, therefore if something does happen and the school is sued Bell
is not responsible. You just need to made sure the principle is aware of
the letter and agrees to the circumstances.
With documentation to prove that the school and the students can not hold
Bell responsible they should give you the wire.
