Wink convert 3 wire hookup on rotary phone

I found a a old rotary desk phone which still has 3 wire hookup. Is it possible to connect this phone to the current telephone adaptors by connecting the wires. I believe that the new system uses only two wires (red & green). What will I do with the third wire ?
Short question is how do I connect this phone so I can use it?
Thanks for your help...

At the start of this page is a comment on how to wire a three conductor wire to work with current two wire systems.

Hope this helps.
