Five years ago there came into being a most unique 
publication . . . Devoted to a sincere belief that 
this industry desired a true, honest and fearless 
medium that it could exclusively call its own . . . Con- 
ceived with the purpose of meeting the problems 
of this industry during the tragic war period to 
help make strong and solid a nucleus of men to act 
as a base for greater growth and future develop- 
ment in the postwar era . . . Dedicated It) bringing 
to the fore constructive ideas and better business 
methods and generally aiding, thru intelligent ef- 
fort, the greater growth of this business. 


Those past five years have been truly eventful. 
The trade knows today of the great acceptance and 
phenomenal growth of I he Cash Box. This is solely 
attributed to the wholehearted and intelligent sup- 
port which the subscribers to this medium have put 
forth to solidly establish a publication which would 
work for this business — and this business exclus- 
ively — quietly, confidentially and fearlessly.

IT eek of June 30, 1947 




The past five years have been turbulent, hectic and — 
thrilling. This period saw the beginning, as well as the 
growth, of many firms who are ranked in 1947 among the 
very largest in the industry. 

The Cash Box entered into the field wnen otners be- 
lieved that the business was finished. It continued to fully 
inform the members of this trade of every news event 
during the years when there was no other source where 
information could be obtained. 

The Cash Box has grown. It has developed into a med- 
ium in which the entire coin machine field now places its 
trust and its confidence. It has expanded in the direction 
in which the industry wanted it to expand. It is always 
planning ahead constructively and aiding, by such plan- 
ning, all connected with this trade. The Cash Box feels 
that this is but a beginning. 'It is only the entrance to 
the road that leads to newer, greater and grander achieve- 
ments to benefit all the industry. 

As the fifth year mark is reached — The Cash Box 
plans an even greater publication offering a finer and 
better service to the trade. It will, as the weeks roll by, 
introduce new and different features. It has already made 
preparations in this direction. Its personnel is trained 
to continue ahead progressively, aggressively and vigor- 
ously, so that all who will read and use The Cash Box 
will find its services, its news and its editorials un- 
equalled. 

This is the beginning of a new era — not only for 
The Cash Box — but for all the industry. The flush of 
the hysterical wartime boom period is long over. The 
trade is adjusting itself to a new and different type of 
business. It must make such adjustment to assure itself 
continued progress. 

There are those who claim that this is a business re- 
cession. Many economists deny this. They state that this 
is, instead, the adjustment period which had to come 
about for all industry, as the answer to the wartime 
boom. Some of the inflationary valuations which were 
introduced with the war seem to linger on. But, very 
gradually, they, too. are being done away with, and the 
resultant effect, it is generally believed, will be the 
introduction of a new and finer and more conservative, 
but more solid business era for the entire nation. 

America's coin machine industry is prepared. Its man- 
ufacturers are planning ahead. They ai’e also visualizing 
a new sales era as the bewildering adjustment period 
settles itself and the members of the trade can see more 
clearly before them. This new sales and operating era 


bodes well for all engaged in the coin machine business 
for, most certainly, only greater progress lies ahead. 

This new era which seems to have actually begun with 
this Fifth Anniversary Issue of The Cash Box will be 
most carefully watched by all in the trade. It is the sort 
of period which will have the complete attention of all 
business men. There will be ingenious coinmen who will 
present new, better and different operating and sales 
plans and, perhaps, a new type of equipment which will 
not only revive sales, but will also enhance the value of 
the present operations thruout the nation. 

There are at the present time, a few frightened and 
craven individuals who will, of their own accord, leave 
the field. This, too. is good for this business, for their 
exit will open the way to others — of greater foresight, 
vision and courage. These are the men this business needs 
today. These are the people who will make this field 
greater than ever and who will bring it the leadership 
it has so long deserved in the entertainment and merch- 
andising worlds.

HEARINGS END 

BOTH SIDES AWAIT DECISION 
ON S COTT & FELLOWS B ILLS 

Only ASCAP and NAPA Reps Heard at 7th and Final Hearing. 
Opposition Continues to Smear Coinmen. Call Music Distribs 
“Mystery Men” of Industry. Sub -Committee’s Report to the 
Committee On The Judiciary Expected This Week. 


WASHINGTON, D. C. — For the time 
being it’s over. 

As Rep, Earl Lewis, Chairman of the 
Sub-Committee of the Committee On The 
Judiciary, banged his gavel on the high 
dais fronting the hearing room calling 
an end to the seventh and final public 
hearing on the Scott (H.R. 1269 and 
H.R. 1270) and Fellows (H.R. 2570) 
bills, the high tension that has been cur- 
rent here between music op and music 
business representatives relaxed. 

The fate of the measures now rests 
with the sub-committee, which is ex- 
pected to make its report to the full 
committee this week. 

It had been a hard and bitter fight. 
Seven action-packed rounds of it. A fight 
in which every music operator in the 
United States and its possessions has im- 
portant hard earned dollars ard cents 
at stake. 

In all the nine years that the pro- 
ponents of these measures have been 
knocking on the doors of Congress, these 
public hearings just concluded, represent 
their most important gains. 

For nine years they have tried to rip 
from the laws of the United States that 
portion of the Copyright Act of 1909 
which specifically exempts coin-operated 
musical instruments from the payment 
of royalties and monetary tribute for the 
“privilege” of using the musical com- 
positions. 

Like they have done with every other 
business in which music represents a seg- 
ment of that business, they are seeking 
to place an annual levy on each and every 
juke box under the American flag; a tax 
they want the music operator to pay: a 
tax they want backed up by the police 
powers of the United States Government. 

And these boys are looking for quite a 
hunk. From ten to forty million dollars 
per year, at a conservative estimate. 

Led by the American Societv of 
Composers, Authors and Publishers 
(ASCAP), and supported by the Song- 
writers Protective Association, the Na- 
tional Association of Performing Artists, 
and a number of lesser figures and or- 
ganizations, each of whom is seeking a 
cut from the music operator, the pro- 
ponents of these bills have thrown the 
most powerful heavyweight legal bat- 
teries they could muster at the compara- 
tive handful of juke box representatives 
who were there to fight back at this 
most vicious of any proposed legislation 
that has ever faced the industry on a 
national scale. 

That by the sheer weight of numbers 
the enemies of this industry have en- 
joyed an advantage is attested to by the 
fact that even at this last and final public 
hearing, it was only the opposition who 
was heard. This, because they were given 
the first opportunity to speak, despite the 
group of coinmen who had asked and 
w-re scheduled to be heard. 


It was Maurice J. Speiser, general 
counsel for the National Association of 
Performing Artists, and sponsor of the 
Scott Bills, who was called as the first 
witness. He made the most of the oppor- 
tunity. With only two hours allotted to 
the entire session, Speiser took all but a 
few minutes of it. His “good friend,” 
Gene Buck of ASCAP, took over what 
time was left. 

Speiser, an able and experienced law- 
yer, was in good form. Following the 
lead of so many others who had testi- 
fied, Speiser also started off with a crack 
at the industry, by referring to th° lack 
of public information concerning it and 
adding it was as tho the industry was 
“a clandestine affair.” 

Going on at great length about the 
history of the anti-juke box bills, Spei- 
ser described the current music ooerator’s 
exemption as a “grave injustice.” 

H a described his own participation in 
its furtherance as being done “without 
selfish interest,” and all his efforts have 
been carried out without compensation 
from anyone. 

It was at this point that Speiser got 
himself in trouble. 

Referring to (H R. 1270). a bill seek- 
ing to permit artists to obtain a copy- 
right on their interpretation of a musi- 
cal composition, Rep. Keating asked 
Speiser if members of James C. Petrillo’s 
musician’s union would not also come 
under that bill. 

Speiser admitted they would. 

Then referring to Speiser’s statem aTi t 
that he was never paid for his work 
for NAPA, Rep. Keating shot a question 
at him in w T hich he asked if it weren’t 
true that Local 802 of the American 
Federation of Musicians had advanced 
him $7,500.00 in January, 1942? 

Speiser admitted that this was correct. 
He further admitted, under Rep. Keat- 
ing’s persistent questioning, the shock- 
ing fact that part of the $7,500.00 re- 
ceived from the union was for the pur- 
pose of conducting a survey of juke boxes 
in New York City! 

Going on from there. Rep. Keating 
tore into Speiser’s testimony again ami 
again, tying him to the Petrillo organi- 
zation thru his appearances at their 
functions and his requests to the AFM 
for funds. 

It was during this period of the ses- 
sion that the exchange between Rep. 
Keating, w-ho had come armed with facts 
and figures, and Maurice J. Speiser grew 
bitter. Keating was apparently angered 
by Speiser’s statements. An anger that 
led Speiser to apologize to Rep. Keating. 
It was a somewhat blanched law-yer that 
went on from there. 


T] 


On the other hand, coming in for an 
accolade from Rep. Keating w-as M. C. 
Bristol, vice president of the Rudolph 
Wurlitzer Company, “Bristol’s testimony 
was more important than all the others,” 
he remarked at one point. 

Concluding his testimony w-ith a few- 
more cracks at the coinmen’s case, 
Speiser surrender the remaining minutes 
of the session to his “good friend” Gene 
Buck, of ASCAP. 

Buck launched his case with a re- 
futation of Speiser’s arguments in b°half 
of H.R. 1270 and, having accomnlished 
this, joined the anti-juke box bandwagon 
to give testimony in behalf of H R. 1269 
and H.R. 2570. Buck was another w-ho 
took the occasion for a smear at the 
industry. 

Remarking that there are three main 
segments to the juke box business: manu- 
facturer, distributor and ooerator, Buck 
pointed out that only two had appeared: 
the manufacturers and the operators. 
Where, he asked, were the distributors, 
wdio w-ere taking in such a large portion 
of the industry’s profits? 

Describing them as the “mystery men” 
of a mysterious business, who have such 
a “vital” stake in the pronosed legisla- 
tion, Buck again demanded to know- 
where these “rich” individuals w r ere. Why 
w r eren’t they in Washington? 

This line of continued smearing be- 
came so ridiculous to one of The Cash 
Box w-riters present that he cracked 
out: “They probably didn’t have the car- 
fare.” 

The verbal melee that followed between 
Buck and the reporter w-as quickly cut 
short by the rap of Chairman Lewis’ 
gavel, who added that “one witness will 
be heard at a time.” 

As it turned out Buck was the last 
witness, but a coin machine representa- 
tive had the last word nonetheless. 

Just as the session w-as closed, Sidnev 
H. Levine, dynamic little attornev for 
the Automatic Music Operators Asso- 
ciation, leaped to his feet to declare that 
as the counsel for three distributing 
firms, he was there to represent them; 
he further pointed out that the distrib- 
utors were fully aware of the proceed- 
ings and were following them with high 
interest; they were ready and willing 
to appear at any time they were called. 

With that the hearings came to an 
end. All the coin machine representatives 
thanked the Congressmen individually for 
their consideration and for their fairness 
in hearing all sides of the issues. 

Rep. Lewis then announced that the 
full Committee On The Judiciary would 
meet in executive session this week, and 
a report w^ould be forthcoming at that 

time.

Week of June 30. 1947 


A Few of the Tele- 
grams Received by 
THE CASH BOX 
from the Nation’s 
Juke Box Leaders 

NEW YORK — It would be impossi- 
ble to reproduce on this one page, 
and still retain any readability, the 
many, many telegrams and letters 
which have been received by The 
Cash Box since the first hearing (May 
23, 1947) of the Scott (H.R.1269 and 
H.R.1270) and the Fellows (H.R. 

• 2570) Bills. 

The fact remains, tho, that wires 
and letters from large associations 
of music merchants all over the na- 
tion as well as independent opera- 
tors, including jobbers, distributors, 
suppliers and manufacturers con- 
nected with the automatic music in- 
dustry of America have continued 
to flood the offices of The Cash Box 
since the pages of this publication 
began to completely and thoroughly 
explain and report each hearing of 
the Scott and Fellows Bills before 
the Sub-Committee of the Commit- 
tee On The Judiciary in Washington, 

D.C. 

It is interesting to note here and 
now that even the proponents of the 
bill have searched thru the pages of 
The Cash Box for whatever true in- 
formation they have received. These 
men have made this statement time 
and time again at the Washington 
hearings. They have complimented 
The Cash Box on its fine coverage 
of the hearings and on its presenta- 
tion of these reports to the automatic 
music industry. Cetrainly, there is no 
finer compliment which can be paid 
to any publication. 

In short, as has been stated at every 
hearing which has been held in 
Washington by the automatic music 
leaders who were present, that The 
Cash Box has given . the juke box 
industry the most complete, most 
concise and most intelligent reports 
of what was happening for and 
against its interests and which, as one 
of the proponents stated. “ brought 
doum a flood of protests and coin op- 
erated music machine men on our 
heads”. 

The Cash Box carried “exclusive’' 
stories of the inside happenings. It 
has also contained confidential infor- 
mation for the trade and disseminated 
that information thru the proper 
channels so that all the juke box 
leaders would know what was hap- 
pening. It has been fearless and 
truthful in its reports and has even 
been threatened by one of the propo- 
nents who remarked, “I could sue you 
for some of the statements which you 
made. But, I realize that they were 
made in the interests of your own 
industry.” 

Nor is this all. The Cash Box was 
the only coin machine publication 
which sat in. and helped to conduct, 
confidential and private meetings 
prior to the hearings on the Scott 
and Fellows Bills in Washington. 

Today, The Cash Box is accepted 
as “the official organ of the juke box- 
industry'’ which is the statement 
made by the juke box leaders who 
were present on the evening of June 
3, 1947 in a meeting prior to a hear- 
ing on the Scott and Fellows Bills the 
next morning.

Week of June 30, 1947 


A NEW GENERATION 
OF COINMEN ENTER 
IN DAD'S FOOTSTEPS 


Sons Taking Over Businesses Established by 
Fathers. Look to New, More Aggressive and 
Progressive Action as Youngsters Get Going. 


NEW YORK— For the past 20 years or 
so in this business, Dad’s been doing a 
pretty good job of bringing home a 
weekly stipend — for Mother and the 
kids. Dad’s done pretty well in most 
cases in this industry and, tho he won’t 
believe this statement even if backed 
up by hammers and clubs, the old guy’s 
beginning to slow up a little bit. He’s 
getting a bit cranky, and pretty much 
set in his wavs about certain business 
procedures and about his personal habits. 
Yep. a lot of the Dads of this speedy 
moving, fast changing business are be- 
ginning to feel the years. And their 
youngsters are beginning to take over. 

Here and there thruout the nation, 
traveling coinmen are coming across 
move and more sons, some who just re- 
turned from the armed services, others 
who have just come out of schools, but, 
most important, who are gradually tak- 
ing over the duties which the “old man” 
carried on his shoulders all by himself 
for so many years. These coinmen, as 
they visit around, still ask for the “old 
man” by name. They still like to think of 
the times when they spent an hour or 
two or more over a glass of beer and had 
a laugh or two in some suite at the 
Sherman and like to reminisce about the 
“old days”. 

But, meeting the sons of these Dads, 
they suddenly find themselves up against 
modern, young, aggressive and progres- 
sive business men — who are “all busi- 
ness” — just like their dads were — 
some years back. They want action. They 
want facts. They want to know about 
this and that and the other thing. And 
these coinmen who have spent all these 
past years just “talking things over 
with the old man” — are, to say the 
very least, left breathless in many cases. 

It’s that pepper and fire of youth 
which builds industries. It’s that spirit 
of optimism. That cockiness and confi- 
dence and surety. That belief in them- 
selves. And Dad sits back and chuckles 
to himself these days as salesmen in the 
trade try their wiles out on the sons. Of 
course — Dad’s still the boss. He’s going 
to make the final decision — and then 


fell his son or sons — why. But. what’s 
most impressive and what is even great- 
er to think about — is this new genera- 
tion coming into the trade to bring new 
life and new ideas and new action and. 
perhaps, a new and greater program for 
future growth and advancement of all 
the field. A"d that’s what counts. This 
is happening al lthe way down the line 
from manufacturer to operator. It’s trulv 
a thrill to listen to a manufacturer laugh 
happily over how his son is so rapidly 
catching on to the factory’s policies, work 
and administration. How son has already 
come into dad’s office with ideas and sug- 
gestions and that some of these have 
already been accepted and placed into 
action. Some of the largest plants in 
Chicago feature sons of fathers working 
away each and every day and growing 
more and more familiar with the busi- 
ness in which they are staking their 
future. 

The numbers of distributors, jobbers 
and operators who already have their 
sons with them, actively engaged in their 
businesses, are too numerous to even 
mention. In fact, in some cases thruout 
the nation, sons have already taken over 
and dad just pops in every now and 
then to learn what’s going on, and why. 
It’s no longer a surprise to traveling 
coinmen to come into a town, ask for 
some dad, and be greeted by a son or 
sons. Then the fun normally begins. Tho 
the roadman can joke and laugh and 
tell stories about the “old man” and the 
“good times they had” — the sons simply 
look on — and wait — just wait — for 
the proposition to come. And some road- 
men grow a bit cold — get feathers in 
their stomachs these days - — as these 
sons ask direct and logical questions — 
that dad forgot all about — because of 
this, that and the other thing which 
had to do with long years of friendship 
and knowing a “good guy”, etc. etc . 

But — these kids of all these coinmen 
— they’re getting action — and they’re 
getting things done and, what’s more 
impressive, they’re breathing new life 
into many old and rather cobwebby ideas 


and operations — and that means a 
greater, grander, better business for all 
concerned. So — let’s greet this new 
generation with all its youth and all its 
pep and maybe its strongheadedness — 
with lots of respect and cooperation. The 
kids are going to make this a better 
business. They’re going to bring under- 
standing of youth into the picture. 
They’re going to build and sell and op- 
erate the machines of tomorrow. 

We at The Cash Box have been 
thrilled to hear about these sons. We 
want their pictures to run on our pages. 
We want to be among the first to offer 
them our cooperation. We want them to 
feel really welcome to this speedy, thrill- 
ing, fascinating coin operated machines 
business. We want them to know that 
this business hasn’t actually started yet 
— and that it’s up to them to push it 
right up (by hard work and intelligent 
effort) to the very top of all the en- 
tertainment and merchandising business- 
es in the nation. 

If your son is now handling your 
business — or learning it from you — 
send in his picture and tell us a little 
something about him — we’d like to say 
“hello” — and we do most sincerely 
believe that everyone else in the field 
wants to know him. We feel that a lot 
of old timers in the cointrade are going 
to get a thrill calling around and being 
greeted by replicas of the “old man” 
when he was young. And they’re certain- 
ly going to be completely fascinated 
when they hear some of these kids, tell 
them all about machines they’ve operated 
for years and, maybe, just maybe, show 
them a trick or two they’ve developed 
all by themselves — tho a lot of old 
timers don’t think there’s a trick, they’ve 
missed or one they don’t know about.

Midyear Mark Finds Games Booming. Ops 
Adding More to Routes. Outlook Bright. 


CHICAGO — The midyear mark finds 
the games field booming bigger than 
ever. About three or four months ago 
games began to suddenly zoom into first 
place position as the word spread thruout 
the channels of the trade that games 
were “enjoying their best collections in 
history”. 

The result has been that old games, 
which blocked a great many fine loca- 
tions thruout the nation, have been re- 
moved and replaced with new equipment 
which is earning coinmen more money 
and, at the same time, giving them a 
longer and better run than they former- 
ly enjoyed. 

Furthermore, trade-in prices have re- 
mained constant and this has helped the 
game ops to also enjoy better operating 
returns. The trade-in prices, by remain- 
ing constant, have allowed many ops to 
get their repeat orders on the machines 
at prices sufficiently low to definitely 
insure them better profits all around. 

From every standpoint, then, pinballs, 
rolldowns, and the new type bowling 
alleys have stepped up the entertainment 
factor of the industry and are appearing 
in more and more territories daily. 

It is also noticeable that the amuse- 
ment game ops are willing to pay the 
higher license fees called for these days 
by communities and states. They have 
learned that higher licenses of this type 
help them to retain their operations and 
that the average location owner will not, 
because of the high license fees demand- 
ed, purchase games direct. 

A very noteworthy example of the 
above is the license fees which the 
Newport, Virginia operators are now 
paying and which amount to the impi'es- 
sive total of $1,630 for the first game. 
Certainly few, if any, storekeepers will 
purchase their own machine when they 
realize that they will have to pay out 
$1,630 in license fees for that one unit. 
(This is broken down by payment of 
$500 per year occupational license to the 
city of Newport, $1,000 to the state for 
an occupational license, $100 per game 
license to the city, $20 per game licence 
to the slate and $10 yearly license to the 
Federal Government). 

The boom was bom on the fact that 
more and more coinmen, who began to 
operate the new type pinball games, 
founi lhat these were not only earning 
better profits for them, but that they 
remained on location for a longer period 


of time and, after this long run, still 
brought a very fine trade-in price. Dis- 
tributors in the games field began to cut 
into their own profit margin to make it 
easier for the operators to purchase the 
machines. Jobbers did the same and also 
extended time payments, in a great many 
instances. The result was to boom sales 
all down the line and to bring about suf- 
ficient interest so that many coinmen 
started to open territory here and there 
thruout the country. 

Not only has pinball boomed, but all 
the oiher types have also zoomed ahead. 
The rolldown game has become an insti- 
tution. Everywhere in the country, it is 
reported, rolldown games have proved 
themselves among the best of the profit 
producers and also the longest lasting 
on location. The public, coinmen state, 
like the games and the interest has been 
held at a good pitch. Furthermore, the 
manufacturers have made these unusu- 
ally attractive, with the result that sales 
have continued at a good clip. 

The new type of bowling alleys are 
also winning more and more adherents 
each day. These machines are institutions 
in a great many territories. In others, 
where they have been spotty for some- 
time, they are now getting in much 
stronger, arid the result is that the 
i bowling alleys which have added many 
new and modern play features are among 
the leading sellers. 

Consoles and other equipment in this 
classification have also started back up 
the ladder with the return of warm 
weather. For a few months they fell 
behind as coinmen turned to enter into 
the boom of the pinballs and rolldowns 
and bowling alleys. But, from all indi- 
cations, they are coming back stronger 
than ever and, it is believed, by Fall 
they will again be up among the sales 
leaders. 

It is noteworthy to pause here and 
study the fact that as the amusement 
games field zoomed the automatic music 
industry slowed down. To add to this — 
the average music machine operator — 
where possible, has added amusement 
games to his route and many more are 
doing so every day. There is no relation 
between the slump in music sales ar.d 
the revival of amusement game sales. 


Already many noted ops are calling 
pinball “king of the field” once again, 
which it was in the thirties. They believe 
that the pinballs and other amusement 
machines will lead the field as the nation 
enters into the first stages of what may, 
or may not, be the promised recession 
period. (As yet economic experts are 
divided in their belief that this can be 
called a recession. They, instead, term 
it a short term adjustment.) 

The term “adjustment” also fits into 
the games field. Here ops adjusted them- 
selves to the new machines and the new 
prices very speedily. The beginning of 
the year saw the amusement machines 
field lagging far behind. But, within a 
few months, it zoomed out of this lethar- 
gic condition and has continued to go 
on ahead at the speediest pace ever 
known to the trade. 

In fact, the speed with which it is 
zooming ahead has brought in more 
manufacturers to try their hand at de- 
veloping and producing better playing 
and greater profit producing games. The 
result is that the operators are enjoying 
the choice of some of the very finest 
amusement machines ever yet produced. 
And each one, so far, at least from 
reports received from all over the coun- 
try. has more than paid its way. 

The boom, therefore, which the games 
field is enjoying, it is predicted, will 
continue on for months to come and lead 
into a climax at the next coin machine 
convention and exhibition in January 
1948, when coinmen exoect that there 
will appear many new type amusement 
machines the trade has never yet seen. 

Games have become more simple in 
operation. They have agam turned to 
entertaining, rather than puzzling, a 
great many players. The simple, high 
score principle gets better action, the 
ops have found, than the intricate mult ; - 
scoring methods which the first post-war 
games featured. 

As the amusement equipment ma u- 
facturers begin to obtain more and more 
materials they are turning to better 
production and presenting finer machines. 
This is sure to lead to an era of outstand- 
ing amusement game action. It also 
means that the average operator will 
enjoy better profits.

Why it pays to do business 


WuRLilzER 



A Leadership isn't won by accident or held by chance. It’s built up over the years 
fw by offering consistently better products for sale— and with better service to back 
them up. That’s the way Wurlitzer won it. That's the way we and our Distributors 
hold it. For these reasons and those below, it pays any Music Merchant— both in 
prestige and in profits — to do business with Wurlitzer. 


PRESTIGE LEADERSHIP 


Wurlitzer has been a name famous in music for over 200 
years. It’s a name that means music to millions today. To operate 
Wurlitzers is to operate phonographs that the public knows and associates 
with the best in coin-operated music. 




PRODUCT LEADERSHIP 


Wurlitzer phonographs and auxiliary equipment 
have consistently led the parade in quality year after year. 
They excel in eye-appeal, ear-appeal, play-appeal. And, because of that, they 
excel in earning power. ^ 

PROMOTIONAL LEADERSHIP 

L Wurlitzer is the only manufacturer in its field to 

combine national magazine, coast-to-coast 
billboard and a powerful point-of-purchase program into the 
only consumer advertising campaign in the history of this business for the 
profit of the Music Merchant.

after 


year! 


WurliTzer 


PUDLIC RELATIONS LEADERSHIP 

Wurlitzer has consistently taken the lead in promoting 
public relations for the betterment of the industry. Newest step 
in this direction is an all-out drive toward delivering 
music at the proper volume level most pleasing to the public as a stimulant 
to extra play and profits for Wurlitzer Music Merchants. 

VALUE LEADERSHIP 

Over the years and because of their recognized 
superior quality, Wurlitzer products have maintained 
their value tar better than have other makes. This was proven during the 
war and is evident today in the comparative prices being paid 
for Wurlitzer and other used equipment. 

DISTRIBUTION LEADERSHIP 

The Wurlitzer Distributor organization stands supreme 
in the industry today. Each Distributor offers his Music Merchants 
the benefit of long experience, complete facilities, skilled 
service and a well rounded organization from a manpower standpoint aimed 
at one end-to aid Wurlitzer Music Merchants in getting and holding 
the best locations. Every Wurlitzer Distributor has a first-hand, intimate

"George Washington, 
Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S., 
Robert E. Lee" 

"I'm So Right Tonight" 

PHIL HARRIS ORCHESTRA 
( RCA-Victor 2301) 

# The inimitable Phil Harris goes back 
to Dixie dialogue to bring up one of the 
better novelty ditties he has cut in a long 
time. It’s George Washington, Abraham 
Lincoln, Ulysses S., Robert E. Lee,” and, 
long title or no, Phil really makes some- 
thing worthwhile out of it. Peg the side 
as one you’ll want to try. The flip, “I’m 
So Right Tonight,” is also a pleasant bit 
of Harris novelty, with Phil again taking 
on the vocal chores. Not in the same 
league as the top deck, but strong eough 
for a filler. 


"I Wish I Didn't Love You So" 
"I'm So Right Tonight" 

DINAH SHORE 
(Columbia 37506) 

# Twice we’ve given the song “I Wish 
I Didn’t Love You So” a featured posi- 
tion as either a “Disk O’ The Week” or 
as the “Sleeper,” and that’s the only 
reason we’re not doing it now. The tune, 
a sock romantic ballad, is given a 
stellar treatment by sultry voiced Dinah 
Shore, and it’s so good that if you haven’t 
placed the song by now do it imme- 
diately. It’s a coin winner. The flip, “I’m 
So Right Tonight,” is not in the same 
league as the top deck, but it does show 
Dinah in a change of mood, and should 
fit as a filler once the big one has run 
its way to the top. 


"The Goofy Gal Of Tegucigalpa" 
"Cecilia" 

THE THREE SUNS 
(RCA-Victor 2307) 

# The Three Suns make a big bid foi 
a wider wax audience with this latest 
platter, and it’s very likely they’ll reach 
it. Offering “The Goofy Gal Of Teguci- 
galpa.” Artie Dunn warbles a lyric that’s 
sure to send a player back to the phono 
for a second listening (you’ll probably 
do the same). Backing up this cracker- 
jack novelty, the combo sails into “Ce- 
cilia,” with Artie again taking the vocal 
honors, and the way all hands perform 
you can peg it one of the best versions 
cut of the melody. Consider this a plat- 
ter certainly worthy of a try. 


"Tallahassee" 

"Natch" 

DINAH SHORE & WOODY HERMAN 
(Columbia 37389) 

# A pair of grand rhythm tunes served 
up by two top notch performers appears 
on this hunk of wax, and ops with a call 
for that type of melody would be wise to 
take it on. “Tallahassee,” of course, is 
a song in praise of the capitol city of 
the sunshine state, and Dinah Shore and 
Woody Herman really carry it out in a 
great manner, their voices blending well 
to the lyric and music. The flip “Natch,” 
offers the combo in another rhythm- 
loaded piece that’s deserving of a hear- 
ing on its own. 


DISK OTHEWEEK 


"I Wonder Who’s 
Kissing Her Now" 

"That Old Gang Of Mine" 

TED WEEMS ORCH. 

(Decca 25078) 



TED WEEMS 


# It’s an oldie that garners the 
featured spot this week, and one 
which should add up to plenty of 
coinange at that. From the forth- 
coming flicker of the same name, 
the old Ted Weems ork offer “I 
Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now.” 
Featuring Ted and the gang, and a 
much younger Perry Como, the 
platter stacks up neatly, as the 
crooner wails the oh so familiar 
lyrics. Perry’s many fans are bound 
to go for this, as will the ever 
increasing Weems flock. Ops can 
expect a host of requests once the 
pic makes the local rounds. Backing 
with more oldie material is a re- 
peat of the top deck, with “That 
Old Gang Of Mine.” Ops who have 
spots that go for this brand should, 
without a doubt go for this side. 
Peg the pair for plenty of coin play, 
with the emphasis on “ I Wonder 
Who’s Kissing Her Now.” 


"An Apple Blossom Wedding" 


# One of the sweeter musical tidbits 
to be heard around is coming your way 
via Eddy Howard’s cutting of “An Apple 
Blossom Wedding.” A natural item for 
spots where hand-holders gather, Eddie 
and the Trio warble it in a style that 
adds plenty of appeal, strengthening a 
tune that’s actually only as good as the 
manner in which it’s done. It smacks 
heavily of the musical style of years and 
years ago, and, considering that that’s 
what the public is buying these days, give 
it a try. Supporting the top deck js the 
outstanding “Blue Tail Fly,” a tune well 
known to anybody familiar with Ameri- 
can folk music. To it Eddy and the boys 
add a l-eally fine arrangement, and it all 
comes up an item heavy with “sleeper” 
possibilities. 


"Hugo And Igo" 

"The Story Of Sorrento" 

XAVIER CUGAT and ORCHESTRA 
with BUDDY CLARK 

(Columbia 37387) 

• Music in the Latin manner is what 
Xavier Cugat’s famed for, but on this 
platter he offers more: more in the 
person of Buddy Clark, who’s featured 
on the vocal on both decks of this cookie. 
“Hugo and Igo,” a novelty-type melody, 
is probably the more appealing of the 
pair, and it should get some quick and 
ready action once it gets around. The 
flip, “The Story Of Sorrento,” is based 
on the old Neapolitan love song that’s 
pretty much familiar to the nation’s 
music listeners. With Buddy doing a very’ 
pleasant interpretation, ops can expect 
pleasant reaction to the side wherever 
hand holders gather. 


"Tango Of The Roses" 

"Jan's Boogie" 

JAN AUGUST 
(Diamond 2078) 

# Jan Augst, the man who made the 
country sit up and listen to his piano 
and his well remembered interpretation 
of “Misirlou,” steps to the wax limelight 
again with this latest disk. “Offering 
“Tango Of The Roses”, a Latin standard, 
August tickles the keys ably enough to 
peg it a must for any spot where his 
past efforts clicked for the clink of 
heavy coin, It’s that good. The flip, 
“Jan’s Boogie,” offers the maestro in a 
change of pace as he delivers one of the 
better commercial examples of woogie 
beat this reviewer has heard in many a 
week. On both sides he’s capably assisted 
by the Rhythm Stylists. Snatch this 
platter if great piano draws along your 
route. 


"Rhapsody From Hungary" 


# What with the big interest of late in 
the harmonica, here’s a platter that can 
be counted among the few good ones 
of the host that followed the famed 
Harmonicats’ disking of “Peg O’ My 
Heart.” The combo on this one is the 
Philharmonica Trio, and they sound 
great. Taking their melody ride with 
“Rhapsody From Hungary,” taken, in 
turn, from a well -known classic of like 
name, the boys exhibit a great technique 
that’s loaded with phono appeal; and, to 
top themselves, the flip, “Two O’clock 
Boogie” is even better, with the boys pro- 
viding plenty of demonstration that the 
harmonica can do some really’ great 
tricks if handled by the right people. 
The Philharmonica Trio is made up of 
I the right people. 


"Blue Tail Fly" 

EDDY HOWARD ORCHESTRA 
(Majestic 1156) 


'Two O'Clock Boogie" 
PHILHARMONICA TRIO 
(Capitol 431)

"Tomorrow" 

"Something For Nothing" 

HARRY JAMES ORCH. 

(Columbia 37388) 

© For some rich rhythm styling spin- 
ning bright with strong lyrical expression, 
the Harry James crew come up with 
“Tomorrow,” a platter decked out with 
all trimmings for your machine. Featur- 
ing Tiny Timbree in the tonsil depart- 
ment, the waxing gets a solid sendoff by 
the piper. Vocal refrain in nasal tones 
echo the title with a gal as the tag line 
for the wordage count. Lots of brass by 
maestro Harry flavor the side and give 
the needling lots of moxie. The flipover 
offers lots of cute lyrics with chirp Pat 
Flaherty hogging the lime on this novelty 
bit titled “Something For Nothing.” 
Ditty spins in gay gait with Pat utiliz- 
ing her pipes to pleasing advantage, 
while Harry and the boys render effective 
background music. Both sides are in the 
James pattern which finds favor with so 
many. 


"Walkin' My Baby Back Home" 
"Heartbreakin' " 

PAGE CAVANAUGH TRIO 
(Victor 20-2246) 

© That perennial novelty favorite, 
“Walkin’ My Baby Back Home,” re- 
ceives particularly delightful treatment 
by the Page Cavanaugh Trio, as the 
group lend their persuasive vocalizing 
talents to the easy, flowing melody 
demonstrating winning harmony work to 
perfection. The combo handle the oldie 
with rich, light tones, as they run 
through the waxing in vibrant fashion 
that spells coin play. Spicing the side 
immensely is a bit of beautiful rhythm 
work which stacks up high. On the flip 
with a ditty spinning in slower tempo, 
the trio offer “Heartbreakin’ ” in nos- 
talgic tones full of lilting melody, while 
their chopped vocal show something new 
in the ballad field. A few more platters 
along the lines of this pair indicate con- 
tinued success for the group, and the 
way they display their talents here add 
up to just that conclusion. 


"Don't Tell Me" 

"What Are You Doing 
New Year’s Eve?” 

MARGARET WHITING 

(Capitol 427) 

9 From the the forthcoming flicker 
“The Hucksters” comes this enchanting 
melody titled “Don’t Tell Me” with song- 
stress Margaret Whiting displaying her 
well known talents in fine arrangement 
to burst through with another song 
which definitely has hit possibilities. 
With the needling spinning in slow metro, 
Meg chirps the wordage aimed at the 
moon-in-June crowd in dulcet tones, 
while the incidental music provided by 
the- Frank DeVol ork fill the air with 
sweet strains. On the backing with a 
tuneful ballad titled “What Are You 
Doing New Year’s Eve?”, the chanteuse 
renders her vocalizing efforts in resplen- 
dent fashion to come up with another at- 
traction that looks like a coin culler. 
Both sides are bound to win favor from 
the many Whiting fans. 










SLEEPER 

OF THE WEEK 


"What Are You Doing 
New Year's Eve?" 
"Naughty Angeline" 
ART LUND 
( MGM 10046) 



ART LUND 


# Slated for the big time in a big 
way is this new tune called “What 
Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?”, 
and it’s another triumph for bal- 
ladeer Art Lund of the stifl hot 
and heavy “Mam’selle” success 
story. Well loaded with possibili- 
ties, and aimed at romancer's, it 
should prove a big winner in just 
about any type of location. With 
Art’s smooth baritone leading the 
way and Johnny Thompson’s violin 
heavy ork behind the crooner, the 
platter spins bright for dancers and 
listeners alike. With the rapidly 
growing flock of Lund fans in the 
offing, this side is one that’s pointed 
right at every op. Flipped, Art does 
“Naughty Angeline”; and although 
not in the same class as the top 
deck this rhythm ditty should win 
favor as a filler in your machine. 
Lots of beat and the wonderful 
accompaniment of the Thompson 
crew once again round out the side. 




"Come To The Mardi Gras" 
"Oh My Achin' Heart" 

VIC LOMBARDO 
(Majestic 7243) 

9 First waxing by this latest addition 
to the Majestic label turns up as effect- 
ive music for the Vic Lombardo crew as 
h° offers the tuneful piece “Come To The 
Mardi Gras”. Pegged here several weeks 
ago by another ork, this rendition adds 
to the splendid styling, and should catch 
coin in spots where the emphasis is on 
sweet. Featuring a vocal combo on the 
side who render the fast moving lyrics 
in light, flippant tones, and coupling the 
smooth, pleasant strains of the band, 
the waxing stands well. On the flip with 
a romantic ballad, crooner Mark Carter 
steps to the podium to render “Oh My 
Achin’ Heart”, a ditty currently enjoying 
success in so many phonos. Vocal effort 
is effectively handled and should win 
praise from the Lombardo fans. 


"As Years Go By" 

"Like A Melody Played In Blue" 
DERRY FALLIGANT 
(Enterprise 273) 

# Plug tune of the month out Ohio way 
shapes up mellow as balladeer Derry 
Falligant renders the symphonic “As 
Years Go By”. Weaving his ballad 
around the title, and throwing in a bit 
of tears into the lyrics, Derry’s rendi- 
tion stacks up high from these orbs. 
Ditty spins in the slow mood, with a 
background of violins streaming behind 
the piper. Aimed at those spots where 
romancers love to gather, ops should find 
a barrel full of coin play with this one. 


"My Baby Didn't Even 
Say Goodbye" 

"Coast To Coast" 

ERSKINE HAWKINS ORCH. 

(Victor 20-2292) 

9 Thrush Laura Washington couples 
with the Erskine Hawkins orchestra to 
offer ops this haunting piece of drifting 
melody, done up with a low blue theme 
and aimed at those many race spots 
just waiting for coin play. Titled “My 
Baby Didn’t Even Say Goodbye”, Laura 
chants the lyrics in pleasing manner to 
score with this piece. Trilling smoothly 
all thru, the quiver in the chirp’s voice 
makes for mellow listening time. On the 
other deck with an all instrumental bit 
titled “Coast To Coast”, the Hawkins 
group show their wares in the manner 
which had made them tops in their field. 
Waxing is bright all through and spins 
in medium fast tempo with lots of riffs 
by the band coming in breaks to round 
out the side. Both sides should attract 
phono play in race spots. 


"Once In A While" 

"Just Plain Love" 

AL RUSSELL TRIO 
(DeLuxe 1081) 

# Platter bright and spinning light in 
the mellow refrain of the A1 Russell Trio 
turns up here as one which definitely 
has possibilities of going well in the 
somber spots. The oldie, “Once In A 
While” offered by the combo with Doc 
Gasso exercising his tonsils in fine style 
shows up mellow in every respect to 
rate this waxing high. Rhythm accom- 
paniment fills the bill all the wav, with 
a wonderful spot guitar solo pacing the 
side. Doc’s vocal effort is one to be heard 
as he warbles pretty all thru. On the 
backing with more slow melody styled 
in the same manner as the topside tune, 
Doc once again grabs the limelight to 
come forth with a side which ops can 
us to good advantage as filler material. 
Titled “Just Plain Love”, with the trio 
hacking the vocal in resplendent fashion, 
the side rates a spot in your machine. 


"Bloop Bleep" 

"Cumana" 

ALVINO REY ORCH. 

(Capitol 428) 

9 Novelty tune in the Alvino Rey ver- 
nacular spins effectively for the maestro 
as he showers ops with the fast rising 
“Bloop Bleep”. Featuring Rocky Coluccio 
in the vocal department, the tuneful 
piece is rendered in favorable manner 
which may make for phono play in those 
many spots that go for this brand. Weav- 
ing his tale around the dripping of a 
water faucet, Rocky’s throaty vocal is 
flavored greatly by the background music 
of the maestro. On the backside with a 
Latin bit, folks that go in for some 
wonderful guitar time, are in for a ses- 
sion of just that as Alvino does “Cu- 
mana”. Beat in the fast vein is mellow 
enough, and the crowd that steps to this 
rumba rhythm is bound to go for this 
waxing.

Up at Apollo Records the folks are 
waxing enthusiastic about three of their 
artists, each of whom is giving big in- 
dications ,of big record sales. The lads. 
Cat Anderson noted trumpeter who cut 
“Swingin’ The Cat,” Arnet Cobb, wild 
tenor saxophonist, who digs “Top Flight,” 
and Tony Bari, silver-voiced singer of 
international songs. Of the trio, Cat and 
Arnet are being skedded for Harlem ops, 
who are reported going all out for the 
boys, while Bari’s latest releases, offer- 
ing four Italian language sides (“Mama,” 
“Chen A Luna,” “Return To Sorrento,” 
and “Tango Of The Roses”) are being 
worn white in New York’s “Little Italy” 
phono stops, according to local music 
merchants.

Now that Louis Prima has left Majestic 
Records his reps are hearing offers from 
a number of other major and lesser 
labels. Rumor has it that he’ll sign with 
RCA Victor, tho his manager, Max 
Schall, won’t talk until Eli Oberstein 
returns from vacation early this week 
. . . By the way, we wish Louis would 
cut “My Irish Wife.” Sounds like a 
natural for him . . . Expect to hear of 
Harry Bank’s return to the wax circle 
very soon . . . Sonora Records getting a 
h'g ride in local phonos with “When 
Your Old Wedding Ring Was New,” 
as done by their Fred Meadows, The 
Singing Waiter; ditto for their Roberta 
Lee’s “My Man.” 


Over at Uecca Hq. all th“ boys and 
girls are predicting their soon fo be 
released platter featuring the combo of 
Bing Crosby, Dick Haymes and the An- 
drews Sisters will be one of the biggest 
sellers of all time. The disk offers 
“There’s No Business Like Show Busi- 
ness” and “Anything You Can Do I Can 
Do Better” . . . Aonther Decca release 
to wath is “Bloop Bleep,” Danny Kayo’s 
first for that label . . . James W. Mur- 
ray, vice president in charge of RCA j 
Victor’s record division, reports that the 
label is going all out to maintain its 
leadership in platter quality, a factor he 
considers most important to economy- 
minded music ops. 

* * * 


Over at Capitol Records everybody’s 
happy about “Tim-Tayshun,” one of the 
weirdest hillbillys ever heard. Featuring 
Red Ingle and the Natural Seven, the 
platter stars Cinderella G. Stump, other- 
wise known as Jo Stafford. Riding high 
on many phonos thruout the country, the 
disk has all the appearances of a smash 
hit. If you haven’t done so by now, go 
out and get your quota . . . Going like 
mad in New York City’s Harlem is 
“When I Write My Song,” as done by 
Herb Jeffries for Exclusive Records. 
Now that Herb has cut another click we 
urge their distribs to go to work on “I 
Left My Heart in Mississippi,” a platter 
Herb cut more than a year ago, and a 
tune we still think has lots of possi- 
bilities. That is, if the distribs have any 
copies of it around. 


* * * 

One of the powerful platteries in th* - 
biz is looking forward to hearing Jackie 
Cain’s first disk under the Aristocrat 
Records lab°l. A talent chief with the 
major firm has been describing her as a 
potential paleface Billie Holliday. Looks 
lik" Aristocrat really has something in 
that gal. They’ve also go a grand little 
novelty in “Get On The Ball. Paul.”

Clark Dennis’ snagging the booking on 
th-* Dinah Shore radio spot, just proves 
what a hit recording can do. Several

. . . . The latest issue of the State De- 
partment’s Russian-language magazine, 
Amerika, carries a stofy on the Ameri- 
can record industry. Prominently fea- 
tured are three color photos taken at 
Columbia Records’ Bridgeport, Conn, 
factory . . . There is a possibility that 
Stan Kenton will reorganize his orches- 
tra late in August, altho folks close to 
the maestro believe it will be October 
before the ork gets together again. 
Kenton is currently in Hollywood recu- 
perating from his illness which forced 
him to abandon work for the summer.

Philly Ops Score 
Smash Success At 
2nd Hit Tune Party 

1,000 Teen Agers Crowd 
Click Club To Pick Disks 

PHILADELPHIA, PA. — Another smash- 
* ing success was the result of the second 
“Click Hit Tune Party” sponsored jointly 
by the Phonograph Operators Associ- 
ation of Eastern Pennsylvania, this city, 
and Frank Palumbo of the famed Click 
Club, noted local nitery. 

Almost 1,000 teen agers flocked to the 
Club, scene of the affair, on Saturday 
morning, June 21, and the party that 
followed was one the youngsters may 
be expected to remember for a long 
time. 

The tune selected by the enthusiastic' 
throng was “Peg O’ My Heart,” and, 
following the program outlined by the 
music operators, the song will be placed 
in the No. 1 spot on all association ma- 
chines in this territory during the month 
of July. 

To add a bit of Christmas spirit to 
the occasion, door prizes were awarded, 
and seventeen lucky youngsters took 
home fifteen popular record albums and 
two attractive record cases. 

Master of ceremonies for the affair 
that lasted thru to the early hours of 
the afternoon was James L. O’Brien, 
popular association executive, who in- 
troduced Joe Giady and Ed Hurst of 
WPEN and Stu Wayne of KYW, radio 
disk jockeys who directed the entire 
show. 

As the proceedings were carried out 
it became evident to all that the young- 
sters were really having a wonderful 
time, which included the opportunity to 
dance in a beautiful supper club without 
restrictions; ir. addition, Boyd Raeburn, 
popular band leader, appeared as a guest 
star at the party. 

Nothing that the “hit tune party” idea 
appears to be catching on with such tre- 
mendous success as was evidenced from 
its most recent audience, association 
leaders have disclosed that they are now 
planning several additional items to in- 
clude in the arrangements for next 
month’s party, which are expected to 
make the affair even greater. 

Sold A Million 


CHICAGO — Accomplishing many a well 
known artist’s dream, the newcomer 
Harmonicats' Yitacoustic recording of 
'Teg O’ My Heart” has passed the mil- 
lion mark in sales, it was recently an- 
nounced.

Diskers Prepare 
For Petrillo Ban 


NEW YORK — Highly placed leaders 
of several well known recording com- 
panies this past week took objection to 
statements made by colleagues to the 
effect they were “little concerned” over 
the possible moves of James C. Petrillo, 
president of the all-powerful American 
Federation of Musicians, following state- 
ments Petrillo had made concerning the 
December 31 deadline on recordings. 

Voted the power to halt musicians 
from making further recordings and 
transcriptions after the end of the year, 
Petrillo at that time also dropped the 
hint that the AFM might enter the re- 
cording biz themselves. 

Petrillo’s announcement came at a 
time when the Taft-Hartley bill was in 
the balance, and experienced observers 
believed that his action was intended 
as a weapon against the bill’s passage, 
since its provisions might well put an 
end to the half-cent royalty per record 
now being paid to the unemployment 
fund of the union by the record manu- 
facturers. 

With the Taft-Hartley Bill now a fed- 
eral law, several record industry experts 
who have had experience with a Petrillo 
promise have voiced plenty of worry 
over what “that man” will do come the 
December 31 deadline. 

Petrillo meant what he said, they 
agree, and it’s more than likely that un- 
less steps are taken to insure the music 
union’s gains recording will come to an 
absolute stop on the date the agreement 
between the AFM and the recording in- 
dustry ends. 

Concerning Petrillo’s statement that 
the American Federation of Musicians 
might manufacture records under their 
own label, the leaders were inclined to 
view the remark somewhat in the spirit 
in which it was voiced. Petrillo said he 
“might.” He didn’t say he would. 

But when they review the possibility 
that Petrillo would halt the making of 
records by members of his union, there 
they see a very tangible threat. He has 
stopped musicians from recording before. 

Actually, they point out, the incomes 
of only about 500 musician members of 
the union would be affected if Petrillo 
issued a “quit work” order on recordings, 
and the membership of the AFM is 
many, many times that number. 

The effect of such an order would hit 
the recording industry hard, they agree, 
tho in its initial phase it would be a 
boon for the largest firms with tremen- 
dous catalogues that go back thru the 
years, while it might well spell the end 
to a number of the newer labels with 
few masters to repress while the edict 
is in effect. 

At any rate, so far as these newer 
companies are concerned, plans are now 
in the offing whereby the next feW months 
may well see a tremendous increase in 
recording activities to build up a reserve 
of masters against the December 31 
deadline. 

The Petrillo voice has spoken, and no- 
body wants to hear its echoes in a shut 
down factory.

Fromkes To Fight 
Haynes-Miller Suit 

NEW YORK — Countering a statement 
relased by Don Haynes, manager of the 
Tex Beneke-Glen Miller band regarding 
the impending action in U. S. District 
Court for an injunction, accounting of 
profits and damages against Rainbow 
Records for the alleged misuse of the 
“Glenn Miller Album,” Harry Fromkes, 
president of Rainbow declared late this 
past week that “Rainbow will fight the 
suit and if necessary take it to the high- 
est courts.” 

Haynes’ action alleges that Rainbow’s 
issuance of the eight-sided album is 
“unfair competition,” in that the album 
prominently displays a picture of the 
late Glenn Miller and that record buyers 
asking for Glenn Miller disks are sup- 
posedly being sold Rainbow’s “Tribute 
To Glenn Miller” album. 

In a statement released late this past 
week by Fromkes, he said that “if the 
album itself were of inferior quality and 
injurious to the late maestro’s reputation 
the public would not buy it.” 

“A flyer inserted in the album plainly 
states how and why Ralph Flanagan 
came about the idea to cut the Miller 
album,” Fromkes added. “It is plainly 
stated that Flanagan never was con- 
nected with the Miller band; therefore 
we see no reason for Haynes’ statement 
to the effect that we are misleading the 
public,” Fromkes concluded.

Decca Issues 50c 
Platter Aimed At 
Phono Operators 

NEW YORK — The addition of a new 
Blue Label 50c line to the Decca Records 
catalog was announced to the trade this 
past week in a statement from Harry 
C. Kruse vice president in charge of sales 
of the plattery. 

The new line does not represent a cut 
in* price of the popular Black Label 
series, but rather an addition to the 
firm’s line. 

Stressing economy in orders to the 
firm’s branches, Kruse said “under no 
circumstances are any inventories to be 
built up in any branch in the country. 
Get ’em in and get ’em out.” 

Although the new series is to be made 
available to both operators and dealers, 
the waxery believes that music oper- 
ators should be especially interested in 
their new line. Whether or not Decca will 
feature their top artists on their new 
line could not be learned, but it is felt 
in these quarters that they could not 
afford to. 

Kruse stated that “there will be no 
return privilege granted nor advertising 
promotion of any kind”, once again em- 
phasizing economy in the distribution of 
the new platters. 

Included in the first release of the 
new line were “Beyond The Blue Hor- 
izon,” and “Crazy Rhythm” by The Three 
Suns; “Raggedy But Right,” and “Dap- 
per Dan” by the Bob Howard orchestra 
and a “George M. Cohan Medley” by 
Dick Kuhn and his orchestra.

"Jole Blon's Sister" 


"Showboy Special" 

MOON MULLICAN 
(King 632) 

9 Following on the heels of his 
recent success with the parent plat- 
ter, Moon Mullican, one of the more 
capable cowboy warblers around, 
offers ops a disk well loaded with 
possibilities for the western spots. 
Titled “Jole Blon’s Sister,” and 
coupling the same double-talk style 
of iyric throughout, Mullican’s ren- 
dition can be counted for added 
coin play. Ditty maintains the 
steady beat of its predecessor with 
string accompaniment offered 
rounding out the wax. Flip shows 
up well enough with an instru- 
mental piece titled “Showboy Spe- 
cial” and aimed at those spots 
where dancers gather, should fare 
well. Topside tune for the money.

• Ops with locations that cater to the

do well with this pair by the capable 
Oak Ridge Quartet. “You Must Come 
In At The Door”, features the combo in 
top styled harmony, as they echo the

one of the finer renditions of this type 
of music around, the group is to be

Ops Continue Call 
For Title Strips 

NEW YORK — With representatives of 
the local diskeries continuing to hear 
the continuous and unabating call for 
free title strips from the music op mar- 
ket, a search has been started by several 
of the platter factories and distribs for 
an efficient system by which the ops’ 
demands may be met. 

A check of local wax works by The 
Cash Box discloses that the principal 
objection raised by the manufacturers 
and distribs is based on the claim that 
they are more than willing to meet the 
cost such a move would entail, but that 
the mere presence of the strips create 
problems that put many a worry furrow 
on the faces of those who work with 
them. 

Stocking the slips, they say, is a moun- 
tainous task, since they never know how 
many to order of a number; then, too, 
they point to the op with fifteen wall 
boxes per machine, all of which required 
the strips. Many of the more experi- 
enced distribs who have worked with title 
strips in the past and have since discon- 
tinued them say that at times they 
“took so much from operators” because 
of poor title strip service they “some- 
times wondered if we were in the record 
or title strip business.” 

Meanwhile, reports from spokesmen 
for the few companies that are provid- 
ing the strips indicate that once initial 
problems are met, the practice becomes 
a lot less frightening than they had been 
led to believe.

They’re For More Phono Play 



Columbia Renames 
Transcription Div. 

NEW YORK — In order better to iden- 
tify the activity of its transcription 
department, Columbia Records, Inc. 
has renamed its Columbia Transcrip- 
tions, and has established it as a sep- 
arate division of the parent company, 
it was announced today by Robert J. 
Clarkson, General Manager of the Di- 
vision. 

Columbia Transcriptions is a com- 
mercial service which for the past 
seven years has been recording 
broadcast transcriptions. The Division 
also makes commercial records for 
private labels. 

Musicraft Back; 
Reopening Plant 

NEW YORK — “Musicraft is back in 
business.” 

That was the statement joyously 
made this past week by Oliver Sabin, 
director of sales, who has weathered 
every storm with the label from its 
early days under the aegis of Irving 
Gwirtz (now president of Diamond 
Records) right thru the reign of Peter 
Hilton, 'Irving Felt, and now, Jack 
Meyerson, who was recruited from 
Decca to ride the driver’s seat to 
wherever Musicraft goes from here. 

That good things have been hap- 
pening to Musicraft since Meyerson 
took over just a few weeks ago is 
evidenced by the plattery’s announce- 
ment that their Ossining plant will 
reopen this week after having been 
completely rechecked, redyed, etc., 
this news coinciding with word that 
Mel Torme and Sarah Vaughn, two 
of their top attractions, will face the 
recording microphones at the same 
time. 

In addition, negotiations are now 
under way to repair and strengthen 
the once powerful distributing net- 
work that Musicraft had built up in 
lusher days. 

Meanwhile, plans are taking shape 
for the opening of the label’s Olym- 
pic plant, on the West Coast, tho a 
spokesmen for the company admitted 
that this move is not expected to take 
place for several months. 

Optimism has taken over once 
again at Musicraft headquarters in 
this city, not a little of which is at- 
tributed to Meyerson’s presence. As 
one Musicraft executive pointed out. 

• “At last we have a record man at the 
top.” 


NEW YORK — Grouped for a hearing 
of one of their latest Mercury re- 
cords, Shirley Richards, vocalist, 
Elmo Tanner and Ted Weems gather 
around a new Seeburg phonograph 


at a recent cointrade party. Weems is 
one of the ork leaders who publicly 
voiced disagreement with the NAPA 
statement that repeated play “hurts” 
the artist.

"Tim Tayshun' Points 
To Folk Disk Boom 

NEW YORK — The phenomenal suc- 
cess of what originally was intended 
to be a “gag” tune, has many a plat- 
tery combing their folk catalogs for 
potential hit material. 

“Tim Tayshun”, released by Cap- 
itol Records recently, and featuring 
Red Ingle and Cinderella G. Stump 
(Jo Stafford), has weathered the 
storm and proven itself a hit tune in 
many parts of the country. Getting 
started on the West Coast, the song 
has risen to proportions which may 
eventually eclipse the mark attained 
by “Pistol Packin’ Mamma.” 

Well known in the music business 
is the fact that a gold mine has been 
earned by many labels that have spe- 
cialized in folk and western platters. 
Attesting to the above fact is the re- 
cent addition to the Capitol line of 
Capitol Americana, which issues a 
heavy assortment of folk and western 
releases. 

Adding impetus to the boots and 
saddle proverb is the recent success of 
“My Adobe Hacienda,” “Smoke, 
Smoke, Smoke,” “Gal In Calico,” 
“That’s How Much 'I Love You,” and 
many others. 

One of the more successful plat- 
teries in the folk tune business is King 
Records, who have continually led the 
market in cowboy material. It was on 
King that the tune “That’s How Much 
I Love You” was discovered, and as 
we know, grew into the pop tune cate- 
gory almost overnight.

U.S. SUES ASCAP AS MONOPOLY 


Civil Action By Justice 
Dept. Charges Cartel 
Ag reement With 
Foreign Societies 


get on 
the ball, 

PAUL!" 


WASHINGTON, D. C. — Coincident 
to the closing of the anti-juke box 
Scott and Fellows bills hearings in 
Washington on Monday, June 23, the 
Justice Department filed a civil action 
against the American Society of 
Composers, Authors and Publishers 
(ASCAP), charging the organization 
with engaging in a world wide mon- 
opoly in violation of U. S. anti-trust 
laws. 

In an accompanying statement, At- 
torney General Tom C. Clark empha- 
sized that the Justice Department 
does not question the right of au- 
thors, composers and publishers to 
band together for joint protection, but 
that the suit merely seeks to cancel 
ASCAP’s exclusive cross-licensing 
agreements with similar societies in 
25 foreign nations, and to make their 
music available to anyone. 

Because of these agreements 
ASCAP and the other 25 defendant 
societies have a “virtual monopoly of 
. . . practically all of the world’s 
musical compositions not in the pub- 
lic domain,” the Justice Department 
alleged, and this monopoly denies 
ASCAP competitors access to foreign 
music and further denies foreign au- 
diences the right to hear non-ASCAP 
music, “thus seriously affecting their 
ability to enter or remain in busi- 
ness.” 

The Justice Department complaint 
further alleges that the Society is the 
world’s largest performing rights so- 
ciety, controlling virtually all per- 
forming rights in the U. S. It also 
charges that ASCAP has “conspired” 
with similar organizations to cross- 
license each other and to prevent 
other societies from having access to 
such music. 

Almost immediately after the Dept, 
of Justice's action, ASCAP repre- 
sentatives resigned from the Inter- 
national Confederation of Authors. 
Composers Societies in London. 

Whether or not members of the 
sub-committee reviewing the ASCAP- 
backed Fellows Bill were aware of 
the forthcoming action on the part 
of the Justice Department could not 
be learned.’ 

Spitalny Diskery 
To Bow September I 

NEW YORK — Phil Spitalny, who re- 
cently severed connections with Vogue 
Records, Detroit, announced his entry in- 
to the record business this past week. 

Spitalny will distribute his “Hour of 
Charm” all-girl orchestra’s disks from 
masters acquired as part of the separa- 
tion deal with Vogue. He has completed 
arrangements with two independent 
pressing plants in New York who are to 
turn out the records for him under the 
“Charm” label. 

‘ Distributorship arrangements are. now 
being made, “Spitalny declared. First re- 
lease will be an album of Christmas 
carols, for which a leading cleric will 
\ r.ts the foreword it was learned. Disks 
are expected to be on the market by

tive vice president of Capitol Records,

sicians who wish to apply for the spot 
in all towns they play on their current 
one-niter tour throughout the midwest.

| of novelty.”

SEN. CAPEHART CALLS FOR ENTHUSIASM, 
LEADERSHIP AND BETTER COMMISH BASIS 


« 

Packard Distribs View New Manhattan" Phono at Sales Convention. 
Hear Sen. Capehart Predict Music Biz Will Be Greater Than Ever Before. 



SEN. HOMER E. CAPEHART 


INDIANAPOLIS, IND. — Everyone of the 
Packard Mfg. Corp., regional directors 
and distribs were present this past week 
(Saturday, June 21) at what was called, 
“Packard's Second International Distrib- 
utors’ Convention” held in the Indian- 
apolis Athletic Club, this city. 

Opening the morning business session, 
Wm. L. Krieg, president of Packard, ex- 
plained the new “Manhattan” model 
phono to all present in the Grand Ball- 
room. At the unfurling of the curtains 
hiding the machine and with the phono 
in full view, all those present loudly 
applauded what Krieg had termed, “The 
finest and the most luxurious commercial 
phonograph in history”. 

A luncheon was then held in the Grand 
Ballroom and the distributors had the 
opportunity of discussing their new 
model at the luncheon tables. The phono 
played for the crowd and the remarks 
made by all those present was that the 
new “Manhattan” was launching a “new 
era for the trade”. 

Senator Homer E. Capehart, Chairman 
of the Board of Packard Mfg Corp., was 
not present at this morning nor after- 
noon session due to the filibuster in the 
Senate in Washington. It was promised 
the crowd that the moment the fili- 
bustering was over that Sen. Capehart 
would immediately fly to visit and talk 
with them. 

The huge crowd left their luncheon 
tables to go over to the Packard factory 
and see the “Manhattan” phonograph in 
production. The crowd was pleased to 
learn that production was well under 
way. 

They then returned to the Green Room

of the I.A.C. for cocktails, immediately 
after words entering the Ballroom for 
the banquet. While in the midst of their 
dinner, Senator Capehart entered, having 
just flown in from Washington. 

All cheered him and asked that he 
speak to them. Sen. Capehart had the 
banquet hall cleared, after the dinner, 
and with chairs arranged for the large 
crowd — spoke to them on the music in- 
dustry generally as well as on their new 
“Manhattan” phonograph. 

Among the many things he said was 
the fact that “The industry is paralyzed 
today”. He also decried the lack of en- 
thusiasm and leadership. He felt that all 
had overlooked the need for building 
real postwar merchandise. He did claim 
that a new era was entering into the 
music industry and that the men now in 
it must get ready to meet it with finer 
and more luxurious merchandise and 
change their business tactics. 

He called for the trade to enter into 
a new and better commission basis pre- 
ferably the 75%-25% commission basis 
as advocated by The Cash Box for the 
past five years. He also told the large 
crowd that they could expect, within six 
months, as conditions went for the better 
that he would ventually call the phono- 
graph the “Homer E. Capehart”. This 
met with great applause from all 
present. 

Among those who attended were: Fred 
Fields, Don Kennedy, Earl Hess, W. F. 
Merchant, Art Nagel, C. D. Kemp. E. 
H. Boraugh, W. C. Mossberger, Harry 
Payne, H. E. Wedewen, W. E. Simmons

Inaugurates Special 
Speed Service 



0,11, KTTT 


CHICAGO — Gil Kitt of Empire Coin 
Machine Exchange, 1012-1014 Milwaukee 
Ave., this city, has inaugurated a spe- 
cial speed service to get machines to the 
operators that is meeting with wide 
acclaim, according to all reports. 

Kitt explains, “These days it is abso- 
luately necessary to get machines to the 
operators just as speedily as we possibly 
can. The op can’t wait when he has a 
good location and he shouldn’t be made 
to wait. We are, therefore, arranging 
for speedy delivery to him in a way 
which has made some of the boys around 
the country actually gasp. 

Here’s a letter from one well known 
operator”, he continued, ’’which I be- 
lieve speaks for itself.” 

The letter referred to the fact that 
the operator had received his machine 
so fast that it was at the express firm 
before he even had arranged for a change 
of machines on the location. 

“That’s what speed service means to 
any operator”, for as Kitt pointed out in 
the letter, “this operator earned the dif- 
ference in real cash within a few days 
than he ordinarily would because of the 
fact that we were able to get the ma- 
chine to him so much faster. Every 
operator will benefit from our new speed 
service.”

“We Get Younger 

Every Day” 



By Herb Jones 

Vice President and Advertising Manager of 

Bally Manufacturing Company, Chicago 


"Ballyhoo” in 1932 began the big boom in the 
coin machine industry and contributed very largely 
to the tremendous momentum which has kept the 
industry growing greater and greater as the years 
roll by. 

Today — fifteen years after the the original 
"Ballyhoo” game — we are in production on a new 
modern post-war 'Ballyhoo” game. Quite naturally 
we refer back to the ancient ‘'Ballyhoo” of fifteen 
years ago. We are telling the trade: "You’ll feel 
fifteen years younger when you operate Ballyhoo of 
1947 — the game which brings back the big boom 
days of the 1932 'Ballyhoo’ game.” 

"Feeling fifteen years younger” serves as a time 
description of the coin machine industry. For, al- 
though the industry is fifteen years older in experi- 
ence, engineering science and business wisdom than 
it was in 1932, it is truly fifteen years younger in 
spirit, enthusiasm and the eager will to be one of 
America’s mightiest industries. That is one of the 


wonderful characteristics of the coin machine in- 
dustry — as we grow older in years, we grow younger 
in energy and enterprise. 

So, as we look ahead into the future, toward the 
' Ballyhoo” of 1962, we — all of us in the industry 
— are supremely confident that our industry will 
be one of the top half dozen industries in the 
country. 

Born in a period of economic depression, we will 
know how to fight through future storms, if they 
come. We have proved our ability to serve in time 
of war. We amazed industrial leaders by the speed 
with which we re-converted to peace-time pro- 
duction and aided in keeping American economy 
on a prosperous level at a time of economic stress. 

. Our dreams for the future are more daring than 
ever, and we possess the skill, the accumulated science 
and, aboA T e all, the tough, young energy and faith 
to bring our dreams to reality. We get younger 
every day.

The members of the California Music

congratulate Bill Gersh, the attorneys, and 
all coinmen who have been representing the 
operators in Washington on the public hear- 
ings on the Scott and Fellows Bills. 

In my estimation these bills are the most 
outlandish of any I have ever heard presented 
before any legislative body. 

I feel that the operators are indebted to 
all you people who have unselfishly given your 
time and efforts toward their defeat.

For Downey-Johnson 
Coin Counters 


CHICAGO — Charles (Jimmy) John- 
son of Globe Distributing Co., this 
city, celebrated this past week with 
the announcement that the firm had 
well passed the 10,000 sales mark on 
Downey-Johnson Coin Counters. 

“And”, Jimmy stated, "what is 
most remarkable and most outstand- 
ing is the fact that there hasn’t ever 
yet been a single return from anyone 
who purchased one of the Downey- 
Johnson Coin Counters . 

According to Vince Murphy, Gen- 
eral Manager of the firm, "We be- 
lieve that before the year is over that 
we will have doubled the 10,000 sales 
figure which we are at present cele- 
brating. Even Jimmy now realizes 
that the Downey-Johnson has been . 
the most phenomenal machine of its 
kind ever yet presented to the coin 
machine trade. We look to many re- 
peat orders as well as a flood of new 
orders as more and more of the coin- 
men become acquainted with the 
marvelous efficiency of the Downey- 
Johnson Coin Counter".

COIN MACHINE MEN 



By J. A. Weinand 

Sales Manager, Phonograph Division of 

Rock-Ola Manufacturing Corp., Chicago 


If there is one thing that should make all coin 
machine men boiling mad, it is to have this fine 
business of ours referred to in a derogatory manner. 
The "whitewash” has been' off of the windows for 
a long while, and it is about time that all of us 
connected in any way with this business start tak- 
ing exception to unfair remarks directed towards us. 

We know that this business has grown up and that 
the people connected with it are just as honest, 
reliable, and upright business men as the grocer on 
the corner and the banker downtown; still, re- 
peatedly, remarks are made in the press, in our 
places of business, in the law courts, etc., that we 
allow to pass without an answer. 

While there are many good things being done in 
the industry that are attracting favorable comment, 
such as the Cleveland "Hit Tune Party”, the Phila- 
delphia "Click Tune Party” and the fact that coin 


machine men are always called upon and figure 
prominently in civic and charity drives, there are 
so many equally fine things that are done every day 
that we never talk about and they never reach public 
attention. 

Let us resolve today that each one of us, in our 
own small way, become, a "One-Man Public Rela- 
tions Organization” acquainting all who will listen, 
with the full, true facts about the fine business we 
are engaged in. 

Let us straighten up that backbone, square up 
those shoulders, harden up the jaw, hold the head up 
and look these critics straight in the eye and please 
don’t make excuses, but do a good sales job of 
straightening them out as to the fine merits of the 
coin machine business — a business all of us are 
proud of.

Aireon Has “Blonde Bombshell” Mystery 


NEW YORK — There is much discus- 
sion thruout the country, according 
to noted music machine distribs here, 
regarding a “blonde bombshell” 
which Aireon Mfg. Corp. of Kansas 
City, Kans. is preparing to spring on 
the trade. 

As yet no one seems to know whe- 
ther this is, or is not, a machine of 
some kind, whether it is some sort of 
auxiliary music unit, or whether it is 
a new model which Aireon is produc- 
ing. 

One noted distributor here, told 
others present regarding this mystery, 
“Whatever it is, I hear that it’s abso- 
lutely sensational. What’s more I 
haven’t as yet been able to get any 
information regarding it, not even 
from Aireon’s regional managers. 

“There must be something of a real- 
ly secretive nature if this phonograph 
manufacturer refuses to tell us what 
it is and, yet, everyone knows that 
there’s a ‘blonde bombshell’ on the 
way from Aireon”. 

Gusses range all the way from a 
new model Aireon phono, to a girl 
chosen to represent the firm. Some 
insist that it must be a new type of 
unit for the automatic music trade 
never before presented which Aireon 
is ready to pop with and create a 
great surprise in the field. 

As yet, regardless of all guesses 
and discussion, the Aireon ‘blonde 
bombshell” remains a mystery unless 
some reader of The Cash Box can 
enlighten all the phono trade.

Keeping Faith 



By William H. Krieg 

President and General Manager of 

Packard Mfg. Corp., Indianapolis, Ind. 


The time is now here for our great automatic 
music industry to take another forward step. The 
public and the operators are entitled to "nothing 
but the finest" in phonographs and music repro- 
duction, especially in view of the tremendous ad- 
vances made in electronics and design during the 
war. As manufacturers, we must continue to keep 
faith. 

The music loving patrons are the operator’s cus- 
tomers; the locations, his place of business. To both 
he must give the maximum in entertainment and 
service if he expects to profit. 

This fact is paramount ... in the profit o) the 
operator lies the success of this whole industry. This 
success requires revolutionary phonographs the 
locations will accept — even demand — knowing 


that, because of increased play, profits to both oper- 
ators and locations will be increased. 

The salvation of the operator is in being able to 
ask for . . . AND GET ... a bigger share of the 
gross receipts! So, I say, move the operator’s per- 
centage 'off dead center.” 

The responsibility of manufacturers is to bring 
out, without further delay, postwar equipment that 
is so fine, so luxurious, so advanced in design and 
tonal qualities that operators can ask for . . . AND 
GET a bigger percentage of the gross receipts. 

With higher profits for operators and better 
service for our patrons, the industry will be ON 
THE MARCH! 

AND PACKARD IS KEEPING FAITH!

Remove Waring 
Records 


ROCHESTER, N. Y.— James V. Alex- 
ander, vice president of the Central 
Coin Machine Co., this city, writes. 
“I, too, am in favor of removing all 
Fred Waring records from my juke 
boxes. I don't believe in doing any 
harm to an orchestra or band leader 
who thinks that letting the public 
hear his records is hurting his pop- 
ularity.” 


FREMONT, O. — Bert Frost of the 
Frost Music Co., this city, writes, 
‘‘We, too, have decided to follow the 
Cleveland and Ohio ops associations 
in withdrawing Fred Waring and 
other NAPA artists’ records from our 
juke boxes. 

“We are sure that this plan will 
meet with the approval of the Toledo 
Music Operators Association and the 
Northwestern Ohio Music Operators 
Association, of which groups we are 
members 

“Our sincere gratitude to The Cash 
Box for its untiring efforts in the 
operator’s behalf.” 


Louis Boasberg 

SAYS: 

ask any operator or distributor who has purchased a 
NEW ORLEANS NOVELTY COMPANY used game, and he 
will tell you that our games are the finest used games 
on the market. Before we sell any game, said game must 
be checked in the following ways: 

1. It must be mechanically perfect with worn-out parts replaced 
by brand new factory parts. 

2. ^he 9 ame must be cleaned, brightened and made as attractive- 
looking as possible with the finest materials obtainable. 

3. The game must be percentaged perfectly to give the correct 
number of free plays to insure maximum player appeal. 

4 . The game must be thoroughly checked and rechecked before 
leaving our office. This insures the game's being ready to be 
played just as soon as it is placed on location. 

5. Our games are packed properly by experts.

L. C. FORCE 

CHICAGO — L. C. (Lindy) Force, 
Salesmanager for AMI, Inc., this city, 
can thank his little daughter’s musical 
bent for saving his life. 

When the Capitol Airlines (Flight 
410) crashed into a side of a moun- 
tain recently, Force was not aboard, 
because his little girl had pleaded 
with him to stay over and come to her 
piano recital. 

Force took the next plane out and 
learned in Pittsburgh of the ill fated 
410. 

His plane circled the Blue Ridge 
area for an hour in vain hunting for 
a sight of the crash. 

Altho Force is strictly a fatalist, 
chances are he’ll keep that liittle girl 
of his practising double time from 
now on‘ 


CHICAGO — An entirely new and 
different type phonograph needle was 
introduced to the automatic music 
field this past week by Gordon Sutton 
of Illinois Simplex Distributing Co., 
The needle is called the “Simplex 


DeLuxe” and three different types are 
being featured. No. 1 is known as the 
“Featherweight” which gives medium 
tone; No. 2 is the “Lightweight” for 
loud tone and No. 3 is the “Middle- 
weight” for extra loud playing.

Week of June 30, 194-7 


An Open Letter 



From Chas. W. Schlicht 

Manager, Music Division of 

Mills Industries, Inc., Chicago 


Speaking on the behalf of the var- 
ious divisions of Mills Industries, In- 
corporated, and the Music Division in 
particular, the writer wishes to ex- 
tend heartiest congratulations to you 
and your associates on the fifth an- 
niversary of your entry into publica- 
tion of The Cash Box and apprecia- 
tion for having brought it along in 
such splendid shape in so very short 
a period of time. 

One cannot help but feel optimistic 
for your future success and continued 
growth when we contemplate the re- 
markable strides that the coin ma- 
chine industry has made and its bril- 
liant prospects for the future. 

In this great young business it 
seems to me that opportunity exists 
for everyone with the initiative and 
will to do their share in protecting 
its future welfare. 

As we all know, the coin machine 
industry divides itself into various 
fields. It was not so many years ago 
when the operator went his own sep- 
arate way pursuing his business with- 
out any regard for what the future 
held forth and without regard for 
the welfare or rights of his fellow 
operator, his jobber or distributor, or 
the manufacturer with whom he 
dealt. 


While this condition has not been 
completely reversed, it has certainly 
been corrected to a great extent and 
should in due course of time be cor- 
rected completely. Much of this ad- 
vancement has in my opinion been 
directly due to the creation and 
growth of the various trade associa- 
tions within the industry — national, 
state, and local. 

Within the past two years it has 
been my privilege to attend many 
functions of these various trade 
groups, every one of which I have 
always found instructive, interesting, 
and enjoyable. I cannot call to mind 
a single of these functions at which 
The Cash Box was not in attendance 
and entirely willing to cooperate in 
any possible manner. Looking at the 
industry from a viewpoint of manu- 
facture, I feel everyone will agree 
when I say that one of the greatest 
strides made in recent years has been 
the entry of new and financially 
sound concerns. This entry into the 
manufacture of coin-operated equip- 
ment has been so great that no con- 
cern today enjoys a preponderant 
amount of influence in any particular 
field. 

By the same token we have had 


enter into this business a good many 
up-and-coming new young executives 
and unless I miss my guess some of 
these whom I have met are going to 
set records in the way of leadership 
and creative ability that will rank 
alongside the past and present dom- 
inating figures of our industry. 

True, the coin machine business 
has had its ups and downs and today 
is faced with many problems, but af- 
ter all, the problems of today are no 
greater than the problems of fifteen 
or eighteen years ago. We figured 
out means of solving them then and 
those that confront us today will be 
solved now.. 

The business in itself is bigger 
than any one individual, group of 
individuals or manufacturers. 

Automatic coin machine operation 
has a definite place in the economy 
of this country and the prospects by 
and large are so vast that there is no 
reason why it, with proper unity and 
intelligent leadership, cannot take its 
place in the vanguard of America’s 
basic industries. 

What 'I have told you in this letter 
may sound visionary, but I am will- 
ing to wager you a new hat that I am 
right.

FIFTH 

ANNIVERSARY 



Lee R. Libby Tells 
Rep. Frank Fellows 

PORTLAND, ME.— Lee R. Libby of 
the Maine Automatic Music Co., this 
city, in an interchange of correspond- 
ence with Representative Frank Fel- 
lows who introduced the ASCAP 
(American Society of Composers, 
Authors and Publishers) sponsored 
bill, H.R.2570, which coinmen of the 
automatic music field are fighting so 
desperately hard in Washington at 
this time wrote Rep. Fellows that the 
juke box industry was already giving 
the artists much more than just a 
“small share of the profits" and that 
this industry was extremely heavily 
taxed, in addition to the intended 
taxation contemplated by ASCAP and 
other such organizations. 

Libby wrote his letters clearly and 
to the point and there is no doubt 
that Rep. Fellows now realizes that 
everyone of the locations of Maine 
Automatic Music in the state of Maine 
as well as all the small businessmen 
in that state will stand back of Lee 
Libby and fight every move of Rep. 
Fellows and his H.R.2570 bill. 

Libby wound up one letter with the 
following, “. . . such a law as you 
propose would put many operators 
out of business completely. What, 
thereby, do you profit?"

CAMOA IS VICTOR 
OVER STATE BILLS 



GEORGE A. MILLER 


OAKLAND, CALIF. — George A. Mil- 
ler, state president and business man- 
ager of the California Music Opera- 
tors Association (CAMOA) reported 
this past week that his organiza- 
tion had been instrumental in defeat- 
ing the bills presented in Sacramento 
and also in various cities and counties 
to further tax coin operated music 
equipment. 

This was the reason that Miller 
was unable to attend the Scott and 
Fellows Bills hearings in Washington. 

‘ But”, as one noted member of this 
organization reported, “we are very 
happy over the marvelously swell job 
that George A. Miller did for us in 
Sacramento and also in various cities 
and towns thruout the state. We 
know that he depended on The Cash 
Box and also on the other operators’ 
music organizations thruout the na- 
tion and we are sure that he won t 
be wrong in his judgment that these 
men are going to win out in Wash- 
ington just as completely as he won 
out here in California.” 

Camoa are today 99% organized 
in this area, according to Miller, and 
are intensely interested in everyone 
of the battles being fought by all the 
music coinmen thruout the nation. 
The experience of this organization is 
invaluable to music men thruout the 
nation,

Solotone Selector Box 
Clicks On Location 

LOS ANGELES, CAL. — After months of 
extensive development and location test- 
ing, Solotone Corporation has announced 
their new “Solotone Magic Selector”. 
Numerous installations in various types 
jof locations it is reported already indi- 
cate that this new development can in- 
crease the take over individual music 
systems which play recordings only. 

With the new Solotone Selector, cus- 
tomers are able to enjoy four different 
kinds of entertainment. They can select 
popular recordings or radio station pro- 
grams merely by turning the “magic uial ’ 
on the front of the box while the box is 
playing. 

This means that the new Solotone Se- 
lector can offer any type of location the 
kind of music most demanded by its cus- 
tomers and also makes possible installa- 
tions in locations which heretofore could 
not be interested in music merchandising. 

Among the locations already tested in- 
clude restaurants, taverns, motels, as well 
as hotels. The hotels tested include one of 
350 rooms and the results were particu- 
larly encouraging. 

The new Solotone Magic Selector is 
already in production and deliveries can 
be made from stock. 

Williams’ Engineer 
Promises Many 
New Developments 



BRADLEE WILLIAMS 


CHICAGO — Bradlee Williams, chief 
engineer for Williams Mfg. Co., this 
city, manufacturers of the “Cyclone" 
pinball and the new “All Stars” base- 
ball game, is reported to have ad- 
vised CMI's Public Relations Bureau 
that, “The drawing boards at our fac- 
tory are crowded with plans for new 
and exciting coin operated amuse- 
ment games for the future.” 

CMI's Public Relations Bureau also 
reports, “He has invented pin tables 
for various manufacturers, one of the 
most famous being ‘Paces Races’. He 
is also credited with the invention of 
the ‘Cardi-O-Meter’ which, for a 
dime, records blood pressure and 
pulse. This marvel required three 
years of research and labor.” 

At the present time Williams' latest 
development is reported to be the 
new “All Stars” baseball game, fea- 
turing 5c, 10c, 25c play with credits 
for the extra coin inserted.

ment they can open up entirely new locations for you

Sees Good Times 
Ahead For Trade 



C. B. (billy) de selm 


CHICAGO— C. B. (Billy) DeSelm. 
Salesmanager for United Mfg. Co., 
this city, is of the belief that there 
are good times ahead for the trade. 

Billy reports, “The unprecedented 
demand for five ball pin games defin- 
itely points toward a new trend. Au- 
thorities everywhere consider novelty 
games, as such, an innocent and 
refreshing pastime, appealing to 
young and old alike. In addition, they 
are a very important source of reven- 
ue and therefore a real asset to every 
community in the nation.” 

Billy also says. “Players get a big 
nickel’s worth when they play the 
new five ball games. They're packed 
with thrills, suspense and action.

Their simple theme makes them real 
fun and excellent for competitive 
play.” 

He also reports. “Production prob- 
lems are gradually easing up. This 
means more and better equipment. 
At the same time,” he says, "new 
ideas will constantly stimulate player 
appeal and the many advances al- 
ready made in the electrical field as- 
sures easy adaptability of many ideas 
heretofore considered impractical.” 

DeSelm says to put this statement 
forward for all the industry, “Good 
times are ahead for all in the coin 
machine field.”

Uses Cargo Planes 
For Speedy Delivery 


LOS ANGELES, CAL. — The industry 
forges ahead making changes to be 
modern and up-to-date, not only in its 
manufacturing of pi'oducts to please the 
public, but also in all other departments. 

Now comes a modern trend in the new 
type of transportation used by Allite 
Mfg Company in shipping Strikes ‘N’ 

Spares automatic bowling alley. Los 
Angeles airport revealed that full truck 
loads of bowling alleys were being loaded 
into freight cargo airplanes, some 
planes carrying as many as 18 alleys 

in a single load.

The cost of this modern transportation 
is not prohibitive when considering the 
advantage of getting machines on loca- 
tion from two to four weeks earlier. 
A full plane can be loaded in Los 
Angeles as late as 7:00 pan. for arrival 


in New York at 7:30 the next morning. 

Jack Nelson, Sales Director for Allite, 
new located here, advises that nearly all 
distributors are requesting full plane 
loads of Strikes ‘N’ Spares in order to 
get quick delivery.

JACK SEMEL 


HOBOKEN, N. J. — Esso Manufacturing 
Corp., this city, will soon introduce a roll 
down game to the trade. Headed by two 
well known coinmen, Jack Semel, presi- 
dent and Jack Rubin, secretary, the firm 
have been testing their game on loca- 
tion for the past month, they report. 

The game is called “Award” and is 
said to include many new features, 
among which are roll over buttons. “Our 
roll down game not only has new playing 
innovations,” states Semel “but every- 
thing put into the manufacture is brand 
new. The cabinet is attractively designed. 
We are now in production and will have 
the games rolling off the line in ten days 
to two weeks.” 

The firm has already set up a number 
of distributors, and will continue to add 
new ones to complete nation-wide cover- 
age. 

Jack Semel will handle sales and pro- 
motion, while Jack Rubin will supervise 
the production.

United Artists Feature 
1865 Juke Box 

NEW YORK — It may interest the 
Committee On The Judiciary in 
Washington, where the Scott and Fel- 
lows Bills are up for decision, to 
know that much prior to the Copy- 
right Act taking effect in 1909 there 
were juke boxes already in opera- 
tion. 

In fact, Harry Sherman, producer 
of United Artists’ new picture “Ram- 
rod”, dug up one of these ancient 
juke boxes for this picture. 

Sherman needed something to fur- 
nish music for a barroom scene in the 
Utah frontier days and rummaged 
thru the famous Pony Express Mu- 
seum at Arcadia, Calif, where he 
came upon a six foot high juke which 
tinkled out three songs on the inser- 
tion of a nickel. 

The songs are, “I Traded My Honor 
For a Bag Of Gold”; “The Last Move 
George Potter Ever Made” and the 
last a real old time tear jerker called, 

“This Is How Brother Died, Mother 
Dear”. 

N. Y. Mirror Goes All Out 
On Juke Box Exports 

NEW YORK — The New York Mirror 
featured a full page in its rotogravure 
section this past week with drawings 
by John Ruge regarding the fact that, 
as it reported, “One of the big items 
on the list of American manufactures 
sold to foreign countries is the juke 
box, according to a recent survey on 
international trade.” 

The paper commented, “Well, we 
can think of a lot worse emissaries of 
good will than Bing Crosby . . .” Also 
stating, “Just the same, it’s probably 
a good idea to spread American cul- 
ture thru the medium of the juke. 

Perhaps we can earn a larger share 
of the earth’s scant supply of good 
will by shipping our juke boxes to 
the far corners of the earth . . .” 

The pictures show two Ubangi la- 
dies standing in front of a juke box 
with the caption reading, “In Ubangi- 
land it may be well to guard records 
so they won’t be stolen for facial 
adornments”. Showing a picture of a 
Venetian gondola the caption reads, 

“Venetian gondoliers can devote all 
their time to gondoliering, since the 
jukes will sing for them.’-

this city, look for “the day” when 
they can once again bring in large 
shipments of American coin operated 
equipment. 

As one leading coinman here wrote 
The Cash Box, “The men here, tho 
bowed down somewhat by rationing 
and other difficulties, would like very 
much to once again see brand new 
American coin machines coming into 
this city in quantities equal to what 
the men here used to receive prior to 
the war. 

“There is no doubt,” he continues, 
“that sales will zoom to high points 
while the English coinmen get ma- 
chines all: over their routes and into 
their arcades and amusement spots 
everywhere in the British Isles. At 
present,” he says, “a great many of 
the leading places thruout London 
are sadly in need of new equipment 
and the coinmen here have done a re- 
markable job keeping the equipment 
they have going as long as they 
have.” 

Conditions, according to this coin- 
man, are of such nature that the men 
here believe their best bet would be 
to get the new American coin ma- 
chines. They have kept close tab with 
America's latest events and almost 
all, he says, are subscribers, reading 
the news avidly and passing on word 
of the machines which seem to be do- 
ing very well in the United States. 

“The boys here”, he says, “sure do 
miss those brand new American ma- 
chines.

Plans New Sales And 
Service System 


LARRY FRANKEL 

ROCK ISLAND, ILL.— Larry Frankel 
of Frankel Distributing Co., whose 
headquarters are in this city, reports that 
the firm are planning a new and finer 
sales and service system which will 
bring operators the closest cooperation 
they have ever before enjoyed. 

According to Larry, “The operators 
need every bit of cooperation they can 
possibly get these days. We have found 
that by offering them sales and service 
of a type which is on a par with any- 
thing offered by the finest distributing 
organizations in any industry in the 
world that they have been able to better 
prosper with new equipment.” 

Frankel also explained that the firm 
are planning a survey thruout the large 
area they cover, contacting all the oper- 
ators and asking them just what services 
they now need most from Frankel Dis- 
tributing Co. He believes that when this 
is finished that the firm will then have 
an entirely new program prepared 

Larry says, “There’s nothing like re- 
vamping a system after a time for, we 
have learned, that sometimes firms be- 
come stagnant when they believe they 
have done everything they can to help 
their customers. We feel that conditions 
these days are changing so rapidly that 
the seller must keep step with the 
buyer.”

Sees Biggest Game Year 



BEN COVEN 

CHICAGO — Ben I. Coven of Coven 
Distributing Co., this city, predicts that 
1947 will prove to be one of the greatest 
games years in the history of the busi- 
ness. 

Coven bases his prediction on the 
great growth of the game business thru- 
out the country and states, “Everywhere 
in the nation more and more operators 
are adding games to their routes. The 
public likes to be entertained by coin 
operated amusements”, he continues, 
“and this year they have turned to the 
games which are being produced with 
greater intensity than ever befere. There 
is no longer any doubt that 1947 will 
prove one of the greatest games years 
in the history of the industry.” 

Coven also reported that sales for his 
firm on all Bally products have stepped 
up tremendously and that they are con- 
tinuing to grow greater every day. “It 
seems to me”, Coven stated in this regard, 
“that all the new Bally games are catch- 
ing the imagination of the trade and are 
proving themselves the real leaders in 
the field.”

Booth Space for NAMA Show Dec. 14 


CHICAGO — Booth space for the 
NAMA (National Automatic Mer- 
chandising Association) 1947 exhibit 
are going fast, according to reports 
being received here at the associa- 
tion’s headquarters. 

The display will take place De- 
cember 14, 15, 16 and 17 at the Pal- 
mer House here. Many are expected 
to attend the convention and see the 
exhibits. Some of the exhibits will 
show entirely new merchandising 
machines for the first time. 

The first day of the exhibit will be 
Sunday, December 14, 1947 with 2 
P.M. to 5 P.M. scheduled for the 
showings. Monday, December 15, 
showing will be held from 12 Noon to 


9 P.M., the same for Tuesday and 
Wednesday. December 16 and 17, 
1947. 

Many strict rules have been placed 
on exhibitors for the use of space 
during the annual convention and ex- 
hibit. There will be no entertainment 
allowed in any of the rooms during 
the hours of exhibition. Members of 
NAMA are allowed a 33 1/3 per cent 
discount on NAMA list rentals. 
There is an additional charge for the 
rooms. The least expensive NAMA 
charge is $165 and there is a charge 
ranging anywhere from $22 to $25 
for the use of the room. 

A number of people have already 
shown great interest in this forthcom- 


to 17 Going Fast 

ing convention, from all reports. 
There is a belief among the leading 
members of NAMA that this will 
prove the most outstanding exhibit 
in their history and that a very large 
number of entirely new products will 
be shown at this time. 

Many coinmen interested in auto- 
matic merchandising equipment, it is 
said, have already evinced great in- 
terest in the convention and intend to 
be present in this city during the days 
of the convention to hear the reports 
from leading automatic merchandis- 
ers as well as see the new machines 
which will be presented here for the 
first time.

CONGRATULATIONS 

TO 

THE CASH BOX 

We heartily congratulate The Cash Box on its celebration of its Fifth 
Anniversary. To all of its staff we send our best wishes for continued success, 
growth and prosperity. 

In particular we salute Bill Gersh, founder of this magazine. Bill, you 
have been the first man able to establish and to keep publishing a weekly 
magazine entirely devoted to coin machines. Everyone who knows publishing 
appreciates how great is this feat. 

Everyone who knows coin machines appreciates how greatly your own 
knowledge of coin machines, coin machine manufacturing, selling and operat- 
ing, and of coin machine people, have contributed to your success. You 
couldn't have gained this knowledge. Bill, unless you had worked with 
abnormal energy, faith and skill. The amount of personal labor and in- 
tensity you have put into all coin machine projects has been inspiration to 
others in this industry to extend themselves just a little bit more in the 
attainment of their own personal goals. 

Thank you for your inspiration and your unfailing cooperation. Good luck 
to you and to The Cash Box.

NEW YORK — Dave Stern of Seacoast 
Distributors, this city and Elizabeth, 
N. J., announced this past week that 
Barney Berkens has been named to 
head the sales force in this area. 

Berkens has had a long career in

coast, Berkens reports that he has al- 
ready contacted a great many ops in 
this area and that sales of good size

its way with many new and spirited 
ideas for the operators in this area. 
We believe that we have something

Mass. Music Op Pulls 
Waring Records 

WEBSTER. MASS. — Adolphe Dugas 
of the Royal Music Co., this city, well 
known to the automatic music indus- 
try thruout this entire area, wrote to 
inform The Cash Box (June 25): 
“We wish to notify you that we have 
decided to follow the Cleveland and 
Ohio State operator’s associations and 
withdraw Fred Waring and other 
NAPA artists’ records.” 

Telecoin Announces 
Trade Name For Game 

NEW YORK — Telecoin Corp., this 
past week, announced that “Telecoin 
Quizzer” would be the trade name for 
their quiz game. 

They also reported, “The ‘Quizzer 
is being made by the Maryland Elec- 
tronic Manufacturing Corp. and is 
distributed exclusively by Telecoin 
under an exclusive agreement with 
Training Devices, Inc. which owns the 
patents. The ‘Quizzer’ is basically the 
same quiz machine which was intro- 
duced at the 1947 Coin Machine In- 
dustries convention and exhibit.” 

Telecoin Corp. is planning an ex- 
tensive road tour to show their entire 
line to all the coin machine operators. 
They state that, in addition to the 
“Quizzer” game, they will also show 
an ironer, laundry dryer and laundry 
extractor, as well as the new Tele- 
Juice, refrigerated canned fruit juice 
vender, the Telecoin system coin op- 
erated radio and the Bendix auto- 
matic washer in its three commercial 
applications. 

The firm report, “Telecoin’s move 
in introducing five new machines 
simultaneously is the opening gun in 
what is probably the greatest coin 
operated expansion program ever de- 
veloped within the industry by one 
company.” 

An authoritative source also indi- 
cated that there were still more vend- 
ing machines to be introduced on the 
firm’s 1947 schedule. 

Special letters, it is reported, were 
sent to officers and members of over 
48 operators' associations by Howard 
E. Richardson, manager of Telecoin's 
special products division, inviting 
them to the demonstrations to be held 
at the Hotel Henry Grady in Atlanta, 
Hotel Commodore in New York. Ho- 
tel Carter in Cleveland, Hotel Stevens 
in Chicago and the Hotel Adolphus 
in Dallas.

LOS ANGELES, CAL. — Paul A. Lay- 
mon, noted distrib, this city, predicts 
that the season ahead will see a complete 
renewal of energy on the part of all 
coinmen and that the year will, because 
of this, finish up with a “real bang”. 

Paul predicts that coinmen are grad- 
ually adjusting themselves to the new 
post-war conditions and that tho this 
has taken a little time, with various 
other factors entering into the picture, 
they are now more or less on the ground 
floor and have decided what they want 
to do for the future. 

“The industry is only just getting 
started,” Paul stated, “and a great many 
coinmen are going to really get going as 
the months go by. Already thruout this 
area, and from what we hear from other 
territories, there has been the first real 
signs of a pick-up in all fields. The trade 
is getting set for one of the biggest 
booms that it has ever enjoyed. It just 
can’t miss.

RESTAURANT OWNER WRITES CALIF. NEWSPAPER 
CAN'T PAY RENT SINCE BELL WAS REMOVED 


SACRAMENTO, CAL. — Always in- 
teresting to the trade is the location 
owner’s as well as the public’s view- 
point of this business. Therefore the 
following letter from R. P. Currin, 
Route 1, Box 4172, West Sacramento, 
Cal., which was printed in the Sacra- 
mento “Bee”, leading neswpaper here 
(June 18) will prove of interest to 
the trade. Currin writes: 

“Editor of The Bee — Sir: Thanks to 
your crusading hatchet man, the 
Shortender, I probably will not be 
able to pay my rent this month. 

“The slot machine in my restaurant 
paid half of a $100 a month rental. I 
never had to stand behind a man and 
twist his arm to make him play the 
nickel nipper. 

“Granted, the machines are set too 
high and there is a small return for 
the investment, but how many people 
walk away from Tanforan or Santa 
Anita with any winnings? 

“What is so eminently fair about 
betting on one’s own judgment as 
opposed to betting on a device which 
mechanically assures a win once in a 
while? 

“What has happened to the guaran- 
teed freedom of enterprise we are sup- 
posed to have fought for recently? 

Why must the average majority al- 
ways fall prey to the rabid and fan- 
atical element whose sole purpose 
seems to be self aggrandizement?”

N. Y. MUSIC OPS ASSN. HOLD BIGGEST MEET 

Bill Alberg and Sidney H. Levine Honored. Pres. Al. S. Denver 
Gives Complete Report of Scott and Fellows Bills to Members 



ALBERT S. DENVER 


EXCLUSIVE 

THE CASH BOX 


NEW YORK — One of the most sig- 


nificant meetings in the history of the 
Automatic Music Operators Association, 
powerful music op trade group head- 
quartered here, was held on June 24, in 
this city’s Park Central Hotel. 

A report to the membership on the 
organization’s great strides accomplished 
within the past few months; a testi- 
monial to a retiring officer of the asso- 
ciation; and a detailed report of the 
group’s participation in the fight against 
the Scott and Fellows Bills were among 
the highlights on the evening’s agenda. 




Albert S. Denver, veteran coinman and 
president of AMOA. presided at the conclave, 
which was given heavy attendance by the 
membership. 


Opening the meeting with a discussion of 
the advances made by the group, Denver 
pointed out that despite the host of prob- 
lems which have befallen all music oper- 
ators in this territory and elsewhere, tin- 
association roster lias grown from Ilia to 
over 180 members in the past two months, 
representing a total ol over 10,000 phono- 
graphs in this area. 


In addition, he declared, the association 
has been receiving many applications for 
membership from operators in nearby Nas- 
sau county. This statement drew much 
applause from the membership. 

Discussing the most pressing problem to 
the trade in this area — television — Denver 
cautioned the operators to think of it “as 
something that’s here to stay, but,” he 
pointed out, “it was a threat only so long 
as it remained a novelty, and once it gained 
wider acceptance in the home it would 
cease to be in competition with the coin- 
operated phonograph.” 

Denver then continued in tin- same vein 
by warning against any panicky sentiments 
among the trade. “All business has felt the 
recent setback," hi- declared, “but still re- 
mains sound, and this business is still 
sound.” 


“Operators,” lie said, “should continue to 
keep the best possible equipment on the 
street, and they should liquidate obsolete 
machines for the benefit of themselves and 
the industry.” 

"I extend my most sincere thanks to The 
Cash Box for the friendly and thoughtful 
manner in which they have analyzed the 
condition of the operator. It has played its 
searching light upon us. showing our achieve- 
ments, our needs and problems, clearly and 
fairly.” 

"My special thanks go to its distinguished 
publisher, Air. Rill Gersh. Thanks also to 
Mr. Joe Grleck. Air. Ralph Emmett, and all 
the other editors who have sought occasion 
to be helpful to us.” 

Completing this general report to the 
membership. Denver called upon Wm. J. 
(Bill) Alberg, of the Brooklyn Amusement 
Machine Co., to come to the rostrum. 

Alberg, one of the best known operators, 
had served for many years as a member of 
the Board of Directors of AAIOA until his 
recent resignation, and it was this meeting 
that was chosen by the membership to do 
him honor. 

Reviewing Alberg's many contributions to 
the growth and development of the asso- 
ciation. Denver, on behalf of the members, 
presented him with a beautiful gold wrist 
watch as token recognition from the asso- 
ciation for his services. 

After the ceremony, Denver went on to 
deliver an extensive report to tin- members 
on the recent hearings held in Washington 
on the Scott and Fellows Bills. 

Highly praised for his outstanding par- 
ticipation was Sidney H. Levine, attorney 
for the association, who accompanied Den- 
ver to Washington and lent his presence to 
each and every session held on the measures. 



SIDNEY H. LEVINE 


To the applause of the membership. Den- 
ver told them that the presence of AMOA 
representatives was instrumental in putting 
the coinmen’s case before the congressmen 
and, he said, “It would have done you proud 
to witness Levine in action at the eventful

Following Denver, Levine took over to ex- 
plain the legal aspects of the Scott- Fellows 
battle. When he concluded, the sentiments 
of the membership might well have been epi- 
tomized by the remark voiced by Al Bloom, 
a former officer of the association, who has 
been affiliated with the group from its 
earliest days. 


Bloom declared that in all his long experi- 
ence with AAIOA. In- had never before heard 
such a fine and logical argument in behalf 
of coinmen. as Levine delivered before the 
congressmen that day. 

The applause of the membership was ample 
evidence that they were in agreement.

Boy,” fifty per cent. 

Regarding “Ballyhoo” Jenkins stated. 
“You’ll feel 15 years younger when you 
see ‘Ballyhoo’. Because,” Jenkins ex- 
plained, “Bally’s new, 1947 ‘Ballyhoo’ is 
bringing back the boom davs of the orig- 
inal, 1932 ‘Ballyhoo’.” 

Regarding “Hi-Boy” Jenkins said. 
“Collection reports on the first few hun- 
dred ‘Hi-Boy’ bells shipped have been so 
phenomenal that operators are calling in 
to expand their routes of these club-type 
consoles. The ‘hold-and-draw’ idea is 
definitely a profit boost for the operators, 
‘Hi-Boy„” he explained, “is of course, a 
bell housed in a handsome upright 
cabinet.”

CHICAGO 

CHATTER 


I lere it is. The fifth year — the Fifth Anniversary 
Issue of The Cash Box. Ever growing, ever serving, 
and from the many statements made to us, becoming 
more and more important to every member of the in- 
dustry. With the new plans which have already been 
made — you’ll soon be seeing a bigger, greater, grander 
and even more outstanding publication to serve you 
better in every possible fashion. The ('ash Box goes 
on ahead. And will soon make announeement of a 
very interesting new development which is sure to 
please a great number of people engaged in the coin 
machine industry — from manufacturer to operator. 
As one noted mfr told us, “The many great achieve- 
ments of The Cash Box are forever engraved on the 
records of the industry.’ 

We found Mrs. Leo Lewis (Coin-A-Matic Distribs) 
enjoying a very nice box of candy this past week. 
Seems that Mrs. Lewis won the box betting on The 
C ash Box. (Keep it up Mrs. Lewis — we’ll help you 
win some more) . . . Bert Davidson is one of the 
Imsiest men in town over at the National Filben (.orp. 
Looks like Bert is going to be working 21 hours per 
day from now on in to take care of the many requests 
he now has for the new Filben . . . Herb Jones and 
George Jenkins in conference on the grand way Bally’s 
distribs greeted the announcement of their new five 
hall game, “Ballyhoo’’. And to everyone who’s been 
in the coinbiz for at least 15 years that name brings 
back some really nostalgic memories. Remember? 
“What’ll we do in ’32? — Play Ballyhoo”. That little 
ditty echoed and re-echoed thruout the corridors of 
the Sherman at one convention. Herb has written a 
piece entitled, “How to feel 15 years younger”, which 
ties in with the presentation of the new, 1917 Bally- 
hoo. 

Tony Gasparro over at Williams Mfg. Go. is busier 
than ever before. Tony’s got all the plant on his shoul- 
ders while Harry Williams is flying his new Beech- 
craft plane west. Last week Tony told us he had heard 
from Harry in Las Vegas. In the meantime, the 
vacation period is here, too, and Tony is puzzled about 
which one of their shops to keep working and why 
ami how . . . Gil Kill over at Empire Coin Mach. Exch. 
is one of the most progressive of the distribs in this 
business. Not only is Gil working away all day to take 
eare of the orders the firm is receiving from all over 
tin* country, hut, is also head over heels concerned 
with the construction of their brand new quarters at 
1012-1014- Milwaukee Ave., including the installation of 
phones, inter-com systems and goodness knows what 
else — while still tangling with long distance phones 
every few seconds. It’s a dynamic life Gil is leading 
right now . . . Billy DeSelm over at United Mfg. Co., 
they tell me, is becoming an expert candid camera 
man. Before you’ll even know it — Bill will be enter- 
ing your next picture in one of those camera shooting 
contests. 

Lots of coinmen who like the very best in food 
have been saying “hello” to each other almost every 
evening at the new and attractive Lindv’s on Rush 
Street. Looks like Lindv’s bids fair to become the 
coinmen’s Chicago eating headquarters . . . Talking 
of Lindy, reminds me that Lindy Force of AMI has 
just returned from a visit south and east, “And”, he 
reports, “where I traveled they shoot first and then 
ask” . . . Juke box coinmen are plenty hot after read- 
ing details of she Sixth Public Hearing before the 
Sub-Committee of the Committee On The Judiciary on 
the Scott and Fellows Bills. “It’s about time”, one 
noted juke box leader stated, “that some people who 
know very little, if anything, about the automatic mu- 
sic business learned to keep quiet.” . . . John Chrest 
of Exhibit was home much of this past week. Mrs. 
Chrest was quite ill . . . Frankie Garnett back in his 
office at the Automatic Distributing Co. reports that 
business is getting along okay. In the meantime. 


Frankie says he is taking it a lot easier these days . . . 
Dave Lovitz, adman for O. D. Jennings & Co., is learn- 
ing what it means to be a daddy. Dave reports that he’s 
up half the night with the new arrival at the Lovitz 
home . . . F. F. Rowell, Jr. and Sr. of Guardian Elec- 
tric are on a pleasure trip thru Guatemala and Cuba 
and expect to be hack home in about a month. 

Maurie and Eddie Ginsberg of Atlas Novelty Co. 
both home this past week recovering from their hos- 
pitalization . . . Al Stern of World Wide Distribs out 
of town most of this past week . . . Howard Freer of 
Empire seen walking down the street holding onto his 
jaw, says, “I’ve just come from the dentist. Ouch” . . . 
Bill Ryan over at J. H. Keeney & Co. extremelv busv 
these days . . . Tom (Dapperest of the Dapper) Cal- 
laghan of Bally reported to have worn a new 7 suit the 
other day which actually made the gals and guys in the 
Bally plant simply gasp. (What? In astonishment?) 

. . . Mac Churvis, well known adman to many coin- 
firms here, seen shopping in the Loop with Mrs. 
Churvis buying a gift for the second birthday of their 
grandson. It’s hard to believe that .Mac’s a grandaddy. 
He looks too young . . . Harry Salat of Bell Products 
hard to catch in these days. And the same for AI 
Sebring who. they tell me, is waiting for Beacon Coin 
Changer. 

The hoys over at Genco working fast these davs 
turning out more and more Advance Rolls to fill the 
orders that are flooding in . . . Max Glass is manu- 
facturing plastic novelties . . . Jimmy Johnson and 
\ inee Murphy answering a great many bell ops on 
how it’s possible to put two sets of reels where only 
one existed before . . . Ben Coven has already booked 
a record number of orders on Ballv’s newest five-ball 
“Ballyh oo”. Ben claims that all he needs is the fac- 
tory’s production for the next month or so and he’ll 
be very happy . . . Nate Gottlieb, who is now a triple 
daddy, reports on the trials and tribulations of raising 
a family. Nate says, “When they’re little, you’ve got 
little troubles and, I suppose, when they get big I’ll 
have bigger trouble.” 

Morrie Ovis and joe Schwartz of Automatic Coin 
back from a sales trip thruout Nebraska. Joe Simon 
now gets ready to leave for Iowa and is taking his 
swim trunks along — just in case the flood waters 
haven’t receded . . . Ted Kruse of Amusematic 
checked into the hospital this past week . . . Bert Snell 
of A.B.C. Coin reports that he’s preparing a new serv- 
ice kit . . . Leon Berman and Charley Katz of Esquire 
Games both flying to N.Y.C. . . . Sid Mittleman of 
Joe Eisen & Sons in town this past week and reported 
to have a photo with him which created much interest 
. . . Many of the distribs who were at the Packard 
Mfg. Corp. showing of their new “Manhattan” phono 
also came to town this past week to see some of the 
boys here . . . We understand that Les Levison will be 
handling Packard sales in the Illinois area. 

We are told that Harry Mabs, veteran pin designer 
now with D. Gottlieb & Co., spent the war vears operat- 
ing in Texas. One day while repairing a machine in 
San Antonio a woman came up behind him and stuck 
her head into the open back of the game. After look- 
ing it over she said, “The man who designed that ma- 
chine must have been a lunatic.” (Mabs was the 
designer) . . . Walter Tratsch of ABT talking about his 
recent Central American trip, reports that while in 
Nassau h e dropped into a small novelty shop and dis- 
covered one of his own target games which he had 
invented 40 years ago, still operating perfectly . 
Walter Patzer also of ABT who invented the famous 
Bridge Robot’ which plays the card game so per- 
fectly that even Ely Culbertson has lost to it. reports 
that he only built the machine after Culbertson, who 
is a dear friend of his, told him he wished he could 
find a perfeet bridge partner. Patzer claims that Cul- 
bertson has a standing order for 700 of the machines 
if they ever go into proudetion.

Week of June 30 , 1947 



This issue completes five years of service to the 
industry by The Cash Box , and it is gratifying to 
receive so many eons of praise from so great a 
number of friends congratulating the magazine on 
its Fifth Anniversary. Altho this issue itself mirrors 
the best wishes of so many advertisers, we have been 
receiving letters from loads of coinmen thruout the 
country — from operators to manufacturers — com- 
plimenting The Cash Box on its growth and echoing 
the sentiment for us to continue speaking for the 
coin machine industry. We thank one and all. 


Bill Rabkin, president of International Mutoscope 
Corp., guests on a radio program "Luncheon at 
Sardi’s” one day this week, and was able to get in 
some very good plugs for the coin machine business, 
particularly the products of his company . . . Harry 
Brown, American Amusement Co., Chicago, back 
in the big city . . . Joe Eisen, Buddy Eisen and Sid 
Mittleman of Joe Eisen & Sons (Packard distrib- 
utors) return from the distributor’s meet in In- 
dianapolis, Ind. The boys were raving about the 
new "Manhattan” phono which was displayed for 
all the distributors . . . Mike Munves tells us that 
this was the best year he’s ever had in the arcade 
field in his thirty-years in the business. 

* * * * 

Barney (Shugy) Sugerman, Runyon Sales Co. so 
busy over in Jersey that he don’t have a chance to 
get to the city, which results in Jack Mitnick rush- 
ing continually to take care of the many customers. 
Johnny Holanka and Gloria Friedman of the Run- 
yon record department report a pick-up in record 
sales this past week . . . Martin Parker, Distributing 
Corporation of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wis., re- 
cently appointed distributor for AMI music equip- 
ment in his territory, a visitor here. Parker takes 
on Capitol Projector’s "Midget Movies” for the 
territory. Leo Willens of Capitol and Parker took 
in the sights of the big city . . . George Ponser and 
Irving Kaye, Amusement Enterprises, Inc., deliver- 
ing their new "Super Tri-Score” the roll down 
game with the roll over buttons. 


Willie (Little Napolean) Blatt, Supreme Distrib- 
utors, Inc., Miami, Fla., after a stop over in Chicago, 
spends an entire week in New York with his two 
boys and many friends . . . Nat Cohn, Modern 
Music Sales Corp., received his first shipment of 
Mills "Constellation” phonos, and the music ops 



drive him wild trying to figure how to divide them 
among his many customers . . . Mac Lesnick, Musical 
Sales Corp., Baltimore, Md., (Seeburg Distributor) 
gaining quite a reputation for the remodeling job 
he does on music equipment . . . Al Schlesinger, 
Square Amusement Co., Poughkeepsie, N. Y. and 
Steve Quinn, assistant sales manager, returned from 
a mid-western trip, covering United Coin Machine 
Company’s showing in Milwaukee, Wis. They also 
stopped off at Detroit and Chicago, and report 
lively sales of their "Sportsman Roll” in these terri- 
tories . . . Hymie Rosenberg, H. Rosenberg Co.,

Week of June 30, 1947 




CALIFORNIA 

CLIPPINGS 


t 


Coinmen all around town extending their best wishes 
to The Cash Box on its Fifth Anniversary. Some of the 
local distribs even recalling some of the early issues and 
congratulating Bill Gersh and Joe Orleck for a magni- 
ficent job. 

Looked in over at Paul Laymon’s busy place and saw 
a sample of the new Bally “Hi-Boy” console on display, 
Paul reports that the ops who have seen the new machine 
think mighty well of it. Sorry to hear that Ed. Wilks 
sales manager for the busy Laymon firm has the miseries 
in the form of an occupatinoal disease known as stomach 
ulcer and is on a tough milk and cream diet, our sym- 
pathy to you Ed. 

A new game is being turned out in town, it’s a poker 
roll down made by the Western Amusement Machines Co. 

Dan Donohue, Regional Seeburg Director, was shocked 
and grieved when informed of the sudden death of his 
wife Marion Donohue this past week. Donohue was on a 
trip to Portland when his wife passed away and had to 
rush back for the funeral. Mrs. Donohue enjoyed good 
health until the time of her sudden passing and the many 
friends of the Donohue’s were deeply grieved. 

The Shine Distributing Company displayed a sample 
this week of the new Douglas Shoe Shine Machine at 
their showrooms on Pico Blvd. On hand to greet ops 
and explain the workings of the new equipment were 
M. L. Parent, national distributor, Porter D. Douglas, 
inventor of the machine from Emeryville. Had my shoes 
shined and was quite pleased with the results. 

Harry Williams of the Williams Manufacturing Com- 
pany, Chicago, flew his own plane in to town this week 
for a short rest and vacation. Harry plans on seeing 
a number of his old friends while around town. Harry 
has been spending some of his time with his Dad, William 
(Bill) Williams of the Williams Distributing Company. 

Leon Rene of Exclusive Records informs us that sales 
of the firm's platters are on the increase right along in 
spite of seasonal slack. The firm has consistently turned 
out his numbers. Gordon Burdge of Eagle Records has 
just signed Pinky Tomlin well known Ork leader to an 
exclusive contract. Pinky spent a number of years en- 
tertaining troops during the last war . . . We have a new 
addition to the coin field in Joseph Dippolito. fight 
promoter and liquor store operator of San Bernardino. 
Joe has just purchased a large number of new Seeburg 
phonos for locations in that city. 

Phil Robinson, west coast rep for Chicago Coin, tells 
me that the ops are really going for the firm’s newest 
game with a big back log of orders piling up. Phil says 
that the factory is making rapid deliveries to all distribs, 
Ed Levin, sales manager of the factory in Chicago, is 
visiting on the coast and traveling with Robinson calling 
on distribs. This is the first trip west for Levin who 
found the distribs out here very able and doing a good 
job. Ed is very enthusiastic about the west coast distrib- 
utors. 

Every opportunity I get to chase out to the Allite plant 
over on the south side (and that's often) I always find 
new innovations and creations. Mention was made of 
the fact that a building behind the plant was moved and 
foundation laid for a new one within a few days. It seems 
now that the new shipping building and storeroom will be 


completed within the next few weeks. Many changes 
have taken place in the plant itself to increase efficiency 
and which is reflected in the increased output. 

Dropped around to call on Bill Happel Jr. of Badger. 
Bill has sold and delivered quite a number of the new 
“Strikes N’ Spares” the all automatic bowling game, Bill 
is awaiting a large shipment which is due soon and hears 
from ops that the game brings terrific returns. 

M.S. Bill Wolf off to the north country calling on ops 
along the way and visiting with the managers of his San 
Francisco, Portland and Seattle offices, Bill must enjoy 
the long trip as he uses his new Cadillac to drive up and 
back. . . . Jack Gutshall still out in the Midwest. Jack 
took a trip to Indianapolis for a sales meeting of the 
Packard Manufacturing Company. Jack Allison is in 
charge of the business in Gutshall’s absence. 

Len Micon of Pacific Coast Distributors has just re- 
ceived a nice shipment of the new Genco “Advance Roll” 
and delivering them as fast as they come in. Len is 
distributing the new Evans’ Winterbook and Bangtail in 
Southern Cal. . . . Dropped around to see George Oliver 
of Capitol Records and heard that the new Capitol re- 
cording of Temptation is winging its way to the top of 
the hit parade in a phenomenally short time. It’s tops 
on the west coast for the second week. 

S.C.A.M.O.A. has just completed moving its offices and 
is all set up to do business in its new location on Pico. 
Jay Bullock, Managing Director of the assn, tells me that 
the music ops are flocking back in and that the organiza- 
tion has many fine plans for the operators’ well being 
and welfare. 

A few of the out of town ops were seen shopping 
along coin row this past week, they included: L. H. 
Maston, Portersville: W. H. Shorey, San Bernardino: L. 
Holloway, San Bernardino: E. S. Trimble, Huntington 
Park: L. Smith. Downey: M. Conner, Downey: Jack 
Arnold. Barstow: D. D. Brymer, Palos Verdes: S. R. 
Hopkins. Banning: W. B. Hulsman, Temple City. Harvey 
Mourlam, Hanford: Lela Smith, Barstow. 

Len Baskfield of E. T. Mape of San Francisco was 
visiting in town this past week and spent several days 
with Ray Powers local manager of the Mape offices in Los 
Angeles. Several important deals are in the making and 
may be announced soon. 

Solotone Manufacturing Company has finally whipped 
some of their parts shortage and production problems and 
are now in full swing again and making substantial de- 
liveries of their new selector box and mirror cabinet 
. . . Fred Gaunt of General Music has been taking lots of 
order’s for new equipment which the firm is currently 
distributing . . . H. G. Sherry of Commercial Radio Corp- 
oration. has come up with a terrific new innovation in the 
firm’s new coin operated radio which includes a two way 
inter-communication system, which allows the manager 
of a hotel or motel to communicate to any or all occu- 
pants of rooms in the establishment. This new idea is 
invaluable in case of emergency of any kind and can be a 
life saver. It could have helped to avoid or reduce some 
of the recent hotel fire casualties . . . Charlie Fulcher 
of Mills Sales has just received a shipment of the new 
Mills Constellation phono and is making rapid deliveries 
to ops who have been waiting the longest for this phono.

T he Cash li ox 


Page 97 


Week of June 30 , 1947 



ST. LOUIS MINNEAPOLIS 


Play action is coming back strong once again thruout 
this entire area. Some of the out-of-town coinmen, who 
dropped in this week to visit with various jobbers and 
distribs, report that business is better and getting going 
more and more so each day. That makes some of the 
coinmen here pep up. Yes, sir, there’s nothing like hard 
work plus some ingenuity to get the take back to normal 
once again. And, like the publisher and editor of The 
Cash Box wrote some time ago in an editorial we con- 
sider one of the greatest we’ve ever read, “Stop Cluck- 
ing! Start Working!”, that’s the real answer to a great 
many problems. 

Del Veatch of V-P Distributing Co. is all hot and 
bothered about Williams’ “All Stars” baseball game. It 
seems that the boys here suddenly discovered that this 
machine is unique from more than one standpoint and 
have been deluging Del with orders for instant delivery. 
“Brother”, Del tells us, “just let Harry Williams ship me 
those ‘All Stars’ by the carload. I can use ’em” . . . One 
guy who definitely won the admiration of a great many 
coinmen is Carl Trippe. Carl is never at ease. Always 
working and always thinking up new ways and means 
to make things a lot better than they are. And, believe 
me you men, that’s real progress. Carl has been doing 
a great job and intends to do even a better one as time 
goes on. 

Haven’t heard a thing from John LaBan lately. What's 
what, John? . . . Andy McCall is one coinman all like 
to meet with. Andy always has an idea and usually it’s 
a very good one, too. Andy has something up his sleeve, 
they tell me, which he’s going to pop with very, very 
soon . . . Joe Morris is here, there and everywhere these 
days . . • Frank Murphy must admit that his AMI ma- 
chines are doing right nice by the ops that bought ’em. 
Frank is one man who knows the music machine biz. He 
looks to some new ideas popping any day from AMI 
which will make a lot of guys sit up and pay attention. 

One of the most impressive jobs I’ve ever seen in this 
or any other business is that booklet turned out by Na- 
tional Slug Rejectors on their 600 series. This is some- 
thing every operator in the country should have. It 
places this coin machine industry on a par with any 
other in the nation., Mr. Gottfried, president of the firm, 
is to be most sincerely congratulated for turning out 
such a very fine job . . . And that brings us right up to 
date with National Vendors, one of the most progressive 
vending machine manufacturers and located right in our 
own home town. Because of this firm there has been 
a tremendous amount of interest in St. Louis as head- 
quarters for the vending machine business. And what 
better town could the people choose? (Don’t ask me — 
for my answer is most definitely St. Louis, Missouri.) 

Haven't been able to get in touch with Ben Axel- 
rod lately. Wonder where Ben is keeping himself? . . . 
Rush Hughes that noted disc jockey is broadcasting The 
Cash Box “Top Ten Tunes” as well as the record polls 
everytime. Sdme weeks ago Rush made a complete pro- 
gram of The Cash Box polls and he plans another very 
soon . . . Jackie Rosenfeld is plenty hepped up because 
of Bally's “Ballyhoo" which should bring back plenty 
of memories to the guys and gals in this town who were 
in the business 15 years ago. Most of them heard “What’ll 
we do in 32? Play Ballyhoo" echo with plenty zest 
thruout the corridors of the Sherman during the ’32 con- 
vention . . . Dan Baum, they tell me. was out of town for 
a few days covering some of the important things one of 
the leading men in this industry had to say. 

Many of the boys here are looking forward to seeing 
the new Packard “Manhattan” model automatic phono. 
They believe that Homer E. Capehart may have some- 
thing of real value for the automatic phono trade 
. . . And. in the meantime, it can be stated that music 
is getting back strong and will probably get even strnoger 
as the weeks go by. There is no doubt that if the boys in 
the music biz will agree to 75%-25% as have other terri- 
tories in the nation that they will be walking on very 
solid ground. 


The Twin Cities have been getting a little taste of 
summer weather this past week as the sun has come out 
and things look a little brighter. 

J. Alan Redding of Houston, Minnesota drove into 
Minneapolis to spend a few days visiting some of the 
distributors in the Twin Cities . . . Stan Woznak of the 
Stanley Music Company, Little Falls, Minnesota in town 
for just the day, although he spent the past week fishing 
near the Canadian Border . . . Julius Koers of the Koers 
Distributing Co., Rapid City, South Dakota drove into 
Minneapolis for a few days calling on some of the dis- 
tributors in Minneapolis and St. Paul . . . Danny and 
Amos Heilicher of the North Star Novelty Company, 
Minneapolis flew back to New York last week to be at 
their nieces’ wedding, and spent a few days there before 
flying back home . . . Pat Flannigan, Minneapolis oper- 
ator is also helping his uncle operate a fishing resort on 
Medicine Lake, near Minneapoliis. They have seventeen 
cabins and forty-five boats which are in use everyday as 
long as the weather remains nice. 

Ernie Kopp of Riebhoff & Kopp, Detroit Lakes, Minne- 
sota. in town for just the day. Ernie’s been suffering 
from a back ailment and has registered at the Mayo 
Clinic at Rochester, Minnesota, but will not be able to 
take his first examination until July 21st . . . Jack Lowry 
of Rochester, Minnesota entered the Mayo Clinic for an- 
other physical examination. Same trouble (stomach) 

. . . Bill Hattlestad of Cottonwood, Minnesota took time 
out to drive into Minneapolis. It was his first visit in 
many months . . . Paul Hayes of Rochester, Minnesota 
in town for just the day, and reports that the bass are 
now biting . . . Ernie Klicker of Park Rapids, Minnesota 
is not only a well known operator throughout Park 
Rapids, but is a partner in a very thriving meat market. 
Ernie drove into Minneapolis and spent a couple of days 
visiting a few of the night spots . . . A1 Eggermant of 
Marshall. Minnesota in town for just the day . . . We just 
heard some very good news about Jules Dirckx of Mar- 
shal, Minn. He is really on the road to recovery and 
is feeling much better. 

Paul and Martin Kallsen of the Martin Music Company, 
Worthington, Minnesota drove to Minneapolis just for 
the day. There is quite a little story connected with the 
success of Martin Kallsen. Martin, several years ago 
worked in a restaurant for a few years. Later he be- 
came a wagon driver for a baking concern and after 
saving a little money he went into the Coin-operating 
business on just his nerve. Today, he has one of the finest 
Music and Pin Ball routes in the State of Minnesota ana 
is so centralized that he is able to operate in part of 
Iowa. On top of all this, due to his personality and ability, 
he has become the supervising diirector of Camp Okoboji 
which is situated on Lake Okoboji, Iowa. He supervises 
over 4000 campers per season, and the camp shows a 
nice gross at the end of the season, which isn’t bad for 
a young man named Martin Kallsen. 

Silent Sales’ Bill Cohen reported to be trekking up 
and back from Chicago with the greatest regularity. His 
visits have resulted in some nice games appearing in his 
showrooms . . . Ted Bush had the blues the other day 
when we heard him talking to someone in Chicago and 
Ted let go full blast about conditions generally . . . Her- 
man Paster has been working like a beaver getting ops 
thruout the area acquainted with the many new ideas the 
firm has . . . More and more ops coming down to the 
Twin Cities as the warm sunshine spreads its beams. 
Looks like the boys will be busier than ever here.

TRADING 



^JL fading old work horses for poor race 
horses never pays off. Neither is there any 
sense in operators’ trading old worn-out 
phonographs for new phonographs that are 
already obsolete. Buy 1947-48 phonograph 
merchandise for your top locations . . . Aireon 
phonographs that bring in more money, 
enable you to amortize your equipment 
sooner and make a profit. 

Aireon is the one really new Electronic 
phonograph with new eye-appeal, new play 
appeal, new pay appeal that sells more music. 
That’s why Aireon operators report 18% to 
36% greater profits. 

From now on ... .
