The Johnny Desmond Show which comes out of 
Chicago over the ABC-TV network, makes full use 
of many of The Cash Box charts. Johnny is pic- 
tured above with a teenage model showing the 
latest fashions for youngsters as the background 
features a large blowup of The Cash Box. Johnny 
is not only going great on his TV and radio 
shows, but his latest recording efforts for Coral, 
“My Own True Love” and “The Song From 
Desiree”, are both getting plenty of play.

WHAT'S 
AHEAD 
FOR '55? 


1954 is winding up with a bang. 

The Christmas season will be one of 
the greatest that the record business has 
ever experienced. Both singles and 
packaged goods are selling in large 
quantities in stores all over the country 
stimulated by a couple of spectacular 
hits which are bringing the customers 
into the stores. 

What’s ahead for 1955? 

Even greater business, as far as any- 
one can see. 

The general economic situation of 
the country has improved tremendously 
in the past several months. Whereas at 
the beginning of this year, most econo- 
mists were predicting a slight decline in 
activity, all predictions for the future 
year are for an increase in business. 

Every sign points to the fact that 
people have much more money to spend 
today than they have had in some time. 
The enormous business which stores are 
doing in Christmas merchandise is posi- 
tive proof of that. And when people 
have money to spend in excess of their 
absolute basic needs, the sale of records 
and juke box play necessarily increase. 

1955 therefore should be one of the 
best years which our industry has ever 
experienced. Indeed it may even set a 
new record. 


Almost every company, enjoying fine 
business today, is set to go in January 
with important new releases. All the top 
names will he represented early in the 
year with their strongest material. Pack- 
aged goods are being planned which 
should attract many new album buyers. 
And new juke boxes which will draw 
even more players than now, are cer- 
tainly in the works. 

Many trends started in previous years 
will undoubtedly be continued and 
strengthened in the coming year. The 
trend to 45 rpm will be even more insis- 
tent. As a matter of fact 1955 may see 
the death knell of the 78 if the accelera- 
tion of the use of 45 rpm goes on at the 
same rate as it did last year. 

In juke boxes, the use of EPs will 
reach greater heights as more and more 
localities switch to 1(K’ play. EPs have 
been found ideal for standards and it is 
in that area where they will receive 
their greatest acceptance. 

In general the picture for 1955 is one 
of the brightest we can remember. We 
can look forward to a year of intense 
economic improvement throughout the 
entire nation in industry in general and 
in our record and music business in 
particular.

“It’s What’s in THE CASH BOX That Counts ” 




THREE SUNS 

(RCA Victor 20-5961; 47-5961) 

© “PERDIDO” (2:53) [Tempo 
ASCAP — Tizol, Lengsfelder, 
Drake] The Three Suns offer a unique 
rendition of a great big oldie. The 
number is loaded with commercial in- 
strumental gimmicks that could send 
it up onto the lists. 

.“FOR YOU” (2:45) [Witmark 
_ ASCAP — Dubin, Burke] Another 
wonderful standard is beautifully ren- 
dered by the crew. Good slow tempo 
with a lovely effect in the backdrop. 
Potent side. 


FRANK I. YN MacCORMACK 
(MGM 11908; K-11908) 

© “MELODY OF LOVE” [Shapiro- 
Bernstein ASCAP — Engleman, 
Glazer] Franklyn MacCormack offers 
a smooth- recitation on the re-release 
of one of the original versions of 
“Melody Of Love.” Herbert Foote sup- 
plies the background on the organ. 
Pretty job that could draw loot. 

/‘TOUCHING SHOULDERS” 
[Public Domain] MacCormack 
comes through with another penetrat- 
ing recital on this number. Organ 
backing enhances beauty. 


JILL COREY 
(Columbia 40410; 4-40410) 

, “I’M NOT AT ALL IN LOVE” 
(2:55) [Frank, ASCAP — Adler, 
Ross] Jill Corey does a big job with 
another great song from “Pajama 
Game.” It’s a big waltz item. Chorus 
assists. Number could be real hot. 

0 “ED WARD” (1:58) [Rylan 
ASCAP — Merrill] Jill bounces 
over a cute novelty on this end. Real 
lighthearted number full of life. 


GEORGIA GIBBS 
(Mercury 70517; 70517 x 45) 

“TWEEDLEE DEE” (2:35) 
[Progressive BMI — Scott] A big 
rhythm and blues number is belted out 
by Georgia Gibbs in a fashion that 
should send it up into the pop charts. 
Real socko side. Full of oomph. 

“YOU’RE WRONG, ALL 
WWRONG” (2:30) [U nit e d 
ASCAP — Simon, Tobias] The vibrant 
songstress offers a pretty ballad to a 
shuffle tempo. Chorus rounds out deck. 
Lovely song flavorfully delivered. 


CHUCK RAY 
(IrUroState 17; 45-17) 

O ,, WHISTLIN’ AT MY BABY” 
(2:47) [Homestead BMI— Lup- 
berger] Chuck Ray handles the vocal 
and leads the ork through a cute 
bounce instrumental. Catchy ditty with 
a colorful air. 

, “WHEN I’M WITH YOU” (3:07) 

[Homestead BMI — Hard] This 

end is a latin tempo ballad vocalled by 
Chuck. 


TSS CASH BOX 


DISK OF THE WEEK 


“I’M GONNA LIVE TILL I DIE” (1:53) 

[Barton ASCAP — Hoffman, Kent Curtis] 

“MELODY OF LOVE” (3:00) 

[Shapiro-Bernstein ASCAP — Glazer, Engleman] 
FRANK SINATRA & RAY ANTHONY 
(Capitol 3018; F-3018) 




FRANK SINATRA 

• As Frank Sinatra’s popularity 
continues to grow, Capitol issues a 
great new release by the “Voice” 
that could easily top “Young At 
Heart.” It’s a fabulous rhythm in- 
terpretation of the great oidie “I’m 
Gonna Live Till I Die” and supply- 
ing the brilliant trumpet work is 
none other than Ray Anthony. This 
is definitely Sinatra’s best jump 


RAY ANTHONY 

number to date and he’s come up 
with some lulus in his “Swing 
Easy” LP. Ray is penetrating on 
the horn. The fans will be wild 
about this record. Flip is a warm 
and mellow interpretation of the 
hot ballad “Melody Of Love.” Here 
again, Sinatra and Anthony blend 
beautifully. We think the top half 
is the very “end.” Listen to it. 


LORRY RAINE 
(Dot 1202; 45-1202) 

® “WHEN YOUR LOVER HAS 
GONE” (3:03) [Remick ASCAP 
— Swan] Lorry Raine comes up with a 
classy, sultry reading of a great stand- 
ard as Russ Garcia leads the ork and 
Murray MacEachern supplies a fitting 
trombone solo. 

“LOST WEEKEND” (2:40) [Tim 
Gayle ASCAP— Gayle, Moon] The 
songbird hands in a warm and feeling- 
ful rendition of a sentimental roman- 
tic ballad. It’s a commercial offering 
that could make the grade. 


BING CROSBY 
(Dacca 29376; 9-29376) 

“THE RIVER” (3:19) [Mellin 
BMI — Concina, Mellin] A slow 
folk-flavored song is presented with 
meaning and expression by Der Bingle. 
Haunting number that could catch on. 

© “TOBERMORY BAY” (3:16) 
[Leeds ASCAP — Reine, North, 
Harper] A Scottish tune is sung as 
only Crosby can. Pretty number. 


BUDDY GRECO 
(Coral 61295; 9-61295) 

© “PARIS LOVES LOVERS” 
(2:28) [Chappell ASCAP— Por- 
ter] A big and beautiful ballad from 
the new forthcoming Cole Porter mus- 
ical “Silk Stockings,” is warmly ren- 
dered by the rich voice of Buddy 
Greco. 

© “AIN’T NO IN BETWEEN” 
(2:31) [Sherwin ASCAP— Sky- 
lar] This end features Buddy on a 
pleasing rhythm number with Don 
Costa’s ork assisting. 


PHIL BRITO 
(King 1417; 45-1417) 

® “YOU LIED WHEN YOU 
CRIED TO ME” (2:56) [Revere 
ASCAP — Sanford, Douglas, Mysels] 
Popular Phil Brito softly delivers a 
sentimental romantic ballad with the 
assist of a chorus. Pretty tune. 

~ ‘NEED ME” (2:56) [Peer BMI 
—Worth, DeCurtis] This end is 
another romantic item by the crooner. 
Good material.

“ONLY LOVE ME” (2:42)

Parks comes over with sparkle on this 
dramatic romantic ballad. Jack Pleis 
sets up a lush accompaniment. Good 
job. 

“LOVIN’ MACHINE” (2:41) 
[Stratton BMI — Cochrane, Wald- 
man, Charles] The polished songstress 
dishes up one of her most commercial 
sides on this end. Real good deck that 
could catch like wild fire. Bernice can 
sing up a storm. 


ROSEMARY CLOONEY & 

JOSE FERRER 
(Columbia 40407; 4-40407) 

® “MR. AND MRS.” (2:38) [M.

HI FI FOUR 


(RCA Victor 20-5971; 47-5971) 

“MY LITTLE NEST OF HEAV- 
ENLY BLUE” (2:15) [E. B. 

Marks BMI — Spaeth, Lehar] The Hi 
Fi Four adds new lyrics to the fa- 
miliar “Frasquita Serenade” and belts 
it our in commercial and enjoyable 
fashion. Boys have good sound. 

“FAR AWAY” (2:52) [Sherwin 

ASCAP — Howard, Farley, Gilbert, 

Norman] Henri Rene sets up a fitting- 
backdrop for the crew's delivery of 
a pretty ballad. Lead voice has a g-ood 
quality that sells the song. 


THE FORTEES 
(Pic 0014; 45-0014) 

/‘CLOSE TO YOU” (2:07) [Bar- 
ton ASCAP — Hoffman, Living- 
ston, Lampl] The Fortees debut on 
the Pic label with an inviting heaty 
item that’ll attract coin. 

‘CA-RAZY” (2:20) [Alamo AS- 
^ 1 CAP — Varnick, Lisbona, Sloane] 
This end is a wonderful novelty with 
a good jump beat. Great material for 
the boxes. Kids’ll love it. 


JOHNNIE RAY 

(Columbia 40392; 4-40392) 

© “NOBODY’S SWEETHEART’ 
(2:13) [Mills ASCAP— Kahn, 
Erdman, Meyers, Schoebel] Right 
along with his two-sider from the 
“Show-Biz” movie, Columbia issues 
a regular single by Johnnie Ray. This 
end is a great standard. Could eaten 
on. 

© “AS TIME GOES BY” (3:10' 
[Harms ASCAP — Hupfeld] Percy 
Faith assists Johnnie on his emotional 
delivery of this classic oldie. Tor- 
mented reading that comes over with 
strength. His fans’ll love this one. 


JOHNNY MADDOX 
(Dot 15270; 45-15270) 

® “LADY IN RED” [Remick AS- 
CAP — Wrubel, Dixon] Johnny 
Maddox, the master of the 88’s, gets 
hold of a great oldie and belts it 
across in his winning commercial 
fashion. The Rhythmasters assist. 

© “BLUE NIGHT” [Lois BMI— 
Rhodes] Maddox shows his ver- 
satility as he eases through a slow 
bluesy item. Excellent keyboard work. 


THE TWIN TUNES 

(Coral 61319; 9-61319) 

® “YOU ARE THE MOST” (2:30) 
[Banks BMI— Lowe] A good jump 
novelty is smoothly handled by the 
Twin Tunes as they debut on Coral. 
Boys have a good sound and style that 
sells records. Side moves. 

® “WHERE DO I GO” [Sound 
ASCAP — Reichner] The boys 
show their versatility as they render 
a pretty love song against a soft back- 
drop. 




“MELODY OF LOVE” 
[Shapiro-Bernstein ASCAP — 
Engleman, Glazer] 
“MELODY OF LOVE” 
[Shapiro-Bernstein ASCAP — 
Engleman, Glazer] 

DAVID CARROLL & PAUL TREMAINE 
(Mercury 70521 ; 70521 x 45) 


“WABASH 4-7473” 
[Rytvoc ASCAP — Kirby, Wood, 
Musolino, Leyden] 

“AN OLD BEER BOTTLE” 
[Trinity BMI — Leisy, Grean] 
JIMMIE KOMACK 
(Coral 61322; 9-61322) 


DAVID CARROLL 

• David Carroll hands in a two- 
sided version of “Melody Of Love,” 
the high flying sleeper that looks 
like it’s headed for the top. One 
end features Carroll leading the 
ork through a beautiful instrumen- 
tation of the song while Paul Tre- 
maine injects a romantic and mov- 
ing narration. This is a most com- 
mercial version of a lovely song. 
The coupling is an all-instrumental 
delivery of the same song. Either 
side is mood music at its best. 
Great arrangements. 


JIMMIE KOMACK 

• Jimmie Komack, who made a 
strong initial showing for Coral 
with his clever version of “Nic- 
Name Song,” has a potent follow- 
up that could be a real big hit and 
shoot the songster into national 
prominence. It’s a delightful bounc- 
er called “Wabash 4-7473.” Jimmie 
comes over exceptionally well as a 
chorus assists. The lower lid, “An 
Old Beer Bottle,” is an unusual 
waltz tempo tune with a very pretty 
melody. Song has a flavor that 
sticks with the listener. Listen to 
the top half. It could go. 


“I HAD THE FUNNIEST 
FEELING” (2:22) 
[Marguerita ASCAP — Segal, Russell] 
“BE A LITTLE DARLIN’ ” (2:57) 
[Miller ASCAP — Carr, David] 
BETTY MADIGAN 
(MGM 11903; K-11903) 



BETTY MADIGAN 


• Betty Madigan, who won the 
Cash Box Poll as the most promis- 
ing new female vocalist, comes up 
with a most promising tune that 
should have little trouble topping 
“Joey.” It’s a wonderful, sentimen- 
tal, country-flavored song dubbed 
“I Had The Funniest Feeling.” It’s 
Betty’s best job to date and it 
could establish her in the top name 
class. Sparkling ork support is by 
Joe Lipman and the ace guitar 
work by Tony Mottola. Watch this 
side. Flip, “Be A Little Darlin’ ” 
is another “Joey” type ditty pertly 
handled by the chirp. Big things 
could happen to the top segment. 


“GEORGE” 

[Marielle ASCAP — Maxwell] 
“SILLY MAN” 

[Jefferson ASCAP — Elliott, Scholl] 
DOLORES HAWKINS 
(Epic 9089; 5-9089) 



DOLORES HAWKINS 

• Here’s that unbelievable 
“George” record that everyone’s 
talking about. It’s a beautiful 
melody excellently executed by the 
smooth voice of Dolores Hawkins 
. . . but the lyrics are beyond the 
realm of belief. The weird words are 
entirely different and record fans 
will buy this number just so their 
friends can hear it if for no other 
reason. Song was penned by Bobby 
Maxwell, author of “Ebb Tide.” 
“George” will be the most talked 
about record of the year, and it 
could be a big hit too. “Silly Man,” 
the other side, is a slow bluesy 
item capably handled. You gotta 
hear “George.” You’ll be shocked. 


LES ELGART ORCH. 

(Columbia 40414; 4-40414) 

© “NIGHT TRAIN” (1:50) [Pamlee 
BMI — Washington, Simpkins, For- 
rest] Les Elgart leads his band 
through another of his classy arrange- 
ments, this time using a great oldie. 
Top-drawer material that could click 
all over again. 

® “EVER SINCE YOU WENT 
AWAY” (2:00) [Moonlight BMI 
- — Anthony, Galucci] Don Forbes has 
a bit of Sinatra in his voice as he 
offers a slow jumper. Les Elgart sup- 
plies the solid beat and instrumenta- 
tion. 


VIC SCHOEN & ORCH. 
(Decca 29346; 9-29346) 


® “I COVER THE WATERFRONT” 
(3:11) [Harms ASCAP — Green, 
Heyman] Vic Schoen is joined by the 
smooth harmony of the Notables on 
a lovely ork-chcrus presentation of a 
top g rade standard. From an LP . 

“LA VIE EN~ ROSE” (2:20) 
[Harms ASCAP — Louiguy, Piaf, 
David] Vic does a fine job with only 
the instruments on this classic ro- 
mancer. Rendition has an interesting 
up-tempo that pleases. 

THE JONES BOY 

(S & G Records 5009; 45-5009) 

® “I DON’T STAND A GHOST OF 
A CHANCE WITH YOU” (2:02) 
[American Academy ASCAP — Wash- 
ington, Crosby, Young] The Jones 
Boys offer an interesting interpreta- 
tion of a top notch oldie. Number is 
done to an up-tempo. Low voice leads. 


© “BABY, YOU’VE GOTTA t OT 
TO LEARN” (2:05) [Richard 
ASCAP — Blake, Cutner, Shuken] This 
end is another jumper given an OK 
delivery. 


JO STAFFORD 
(Columbia 40406; 4-40406) 


‘DON’T GET AROUND MUCH 
’ANYMORE” (3:12) [RobVns 
ASCAP — Russell, Ellington] A great 
oldie is superbly presented by the 
fabulous voice of Jo Stafford. A potent 
song that’s ripe enough to hit again. 
And Jo can make it happen. 


© “DARLING! DARLING! DAR- 
LING!” (2:10) [Mayfair ASCAP 
— Copeland, Lloyd] This inviting Pttle 
ditty has a beautiful story about a 
Swiss lad. Good commercial cutie. 
Norman Luboff Choir and Weston ork 
assist. 


MICHAEL RAINE 
(Pacifica 1001; 45-1001) 


‘DO YOU RECALL” [Har-Bock 
_ BMI - — Raine] Michael Raine 
makes an impressive bow on the label 
as she fashions a warm romantic 
ballad. Tender number. Thrush has 

ct rrnnrl pmYim.irpinl vocal rmnllt.V 


© “CHRISTMAS IS THE TIME 
FOR LOVE” [Har-Bock BMT— 
Saine] Russ Garcia’s ork sets up an- 
other lush backing for Miss Raine’s 
presentation of a Christmas love serg. 
Bit too late for holiday sales.

Records As A Partner 


NEW YORK — Nesuhi Ertegun has 
joined Atlantic Records as a partner 
and vice-president it was announced 
this week by that company. 

Ertegun, who is a brother of Atlan- 
tic’s Vice-President Ahmet Ertegun, 
purchased an interest in the indie firm 
as one of the first steps in the com- 
pany’s plans for a long range expan- 
sion program. 

Ertegun’s first project with the 
company will be the expansion and 
development of Atlantic’s package 
merchandise. Plans have been form- 
ulated for an entirely new line of LP’s 
and EP’s with the emphasis on jazz 
in both the progressive and traditional 
fields. 

Ertegun is a recognized jazz author- 
ity, and has been associated with jazz 
as a writer, critic, teacher and A & R 
man. 

He has been the owner of two jazz 
labels, Crescent and Jazz Man, and 
was the proprietor of the famous Jazz 
Man Record Shop in Hollywood. Most 
recently he was associated with the 
Good Time Jazz and Contemporary 
Record Companies. For the past four 
years Ertegun has given a college 


credit course in jazz at U.C.L.A. 

Ertegun has come to New York 
from California where he has resided 
fc r the past few years, to begin his 
duties with Atlantic. 

Atlantic management, in addition 
to Ertegun, will comprise vice presi- 
dents Miriam Abramson, Ahmet Erte- 
gun and Jerry Wexler with president 
Herbert C. Abramson, currently on 
leave from the company as a Captain

^ Tel.: JUdson 6-2640 


NEW YORK: 

The music business took time out to celebrate the holidays last week with 
parties galore. There was general rejoicing that the year wound up with 
great business and there was a feeling of genuine confidence for the coming 
year. . . . Guy Lombardo is the subject of profiles in the current issues of 
“Look” and “Coronet” magazines. The “Look” story analyzes his longstanding 
success, particularly at New York’s Roosevelt Grill. The “Coronet” six-page 
profile by music critic George Frazier contains many 
heretofore untold anecdotes connected with Guy’s 
career, home life and sports activities. . . . A1 
Martino back in this country after seven months tour- 
ing the British Isles. . . . Jimmie Komack, whose 
“Wabash 4-7473” has just been released on Coral, set 
for the Casino Theater in Toronto with the Crew Cuts, 
and then the Latin Casino in Philadelphia. . . . Show- 
business greats were on hand at the Composer last 
Wednesday to celebrate the birthday of Deems Taylor. 

. . . Bill Haley’s Comets, whose Decca recordings of 
“Shake, Rattle and Roll” and “Dim, Dim The Lights” 
are among the nation’s best-sellers, have been signed 
to be featured in a forthcoming Universal movie to 
be made in Hollywood. . . . Joe Carlton has signed 
Betty Johnson to the RCA pop label. Betty is a mem- 
ber of the Johnson Family, which records on Victor’s 
country label. She also cut “I Want Eddie Fisher for 
Christmas” solo for Bell Records. . . . Hank Snow set for the Perry Como show 
December 29. . . . Sorry to hear that George Goldner’s mother passed away 
last week. 

CHICAGO: 

The Chicago Theatre reports terrific box office for their current show 
which stars Don Cornell and features an ice review which is being handled by 
Truly McGee, a topnotch coach here. Don is travelling with his wife and 
daughter this trip and as soon as he closes the Chicago, he heads for New 
York. . . . Label “X” ’s Frank Lester in town for a day or two working 
on his current release, “Wedding Bells” b/w “Tell It To Me Again.” Frankie 
formerly sang with several bands including Buddy 
Morrow. . . . Larry Norrett, we are sorry to report, 
has not as yet been able to complete his contemplated 
Florida trip. Seems Larry stopped off in Cincinnati 
on a promotion and while there, suffered a heart at- 
tack and is now in a hospital there. Everyone hopin’ 

Larry will be up and around again but soon. . . . 

Johnny Holiday whom many remember as Danny 
Parker, now recording for Pacific Jazz. And out with 
a new LP titled ‘Johnny Holiday Sings.’ . . . For jazz 
enthusiasts, Chief go now offers Woody Herman at the 
Blue Note and Herbie Fields and his fine aggregation 
at the Preview. . . . Johnny Desmond preparing to bid 
Chicago ‘adieu.’ Jehrny moving to New Yuik City 
where, it is reported, he will have a part in a stage play. 

Meanwhile several map vocalists keeping their fingers 
crossed that perhaps ■he ‘Breakfast Club’ plum will 
come their way. . . . Denise Lor in town once again 
promoting her first Mercury waxing titled “From Nine To Five.” . . . Tommy 
Leonetti tells us he goes into Fazzio’s in Milwaukee for two weeks beginning 
January 28. . . . Albert Latauska, vice-president and regional manager of Cap- 
itol Record Distributing Co. here, announced this past week that he is resigning 
as of 12/31 in order to enter into a business venture with Stan Kenton. Latauska 
says he will temporarily make his headquarters in Hollywood. . . . Jimmy Boyd 
here for “In Town Tonight,” a CBS-TV’er. . . . The “Tattle-Tales” now appear- 
ing at Mangam’s Chateau. . . . MAY WE WISH EACH AND EVERY ONE 
OF YOU A VERY HAPPY, HEALTHY AND SUCCESSFUL NEW YEAR. 

HOLLYWOOD: 

Here it is a new year already. Time for making New Year’s resolutions, 
putting into effect new policies and ideas. 1955 has all the prospects of a big 
year for the record industry. . . . Top ingredients for making a hit these days 
seem to be: (1) Select a TV show with 25 to 50 million viewers. (2) Build 
a plot around a phonograph record. (3) Add a DJ for 
good measure. It worked for Joan Weber on Studio One 
and didn’t hurt Teresa Brewer on Ed Sullivan’s show. 
Two weeks ago it was Capitol’s turn via the Jackie 
Gleason show using “My Love Song To You” sung 
by Bob Manning. Tune is breaking wide open through- 
out the country. . . . The Four Knights have returned 
home again to spend the holidays with their families 
after a year on Ihe road. They have been busy cutting 
new sides at Capitol’s Melrose studios. The group 
will leave for club dates throughout the Northwest 
starting the first of the new year. . . . Sammy Davis, 
Jr. is making a sensational comeback since losing his 
eye. He opens at Ciros Jan. 11th. . . . Decca is getting 
tremendous air play on “Open Up Your Heart” by 
The Cowboy Church School. Tune is expected to hit 
the best seller lists very soon. . . . Ricky Lido, new 
vocal find, sings with The Janice Luce Trio at the 
Beverly-Wilshire Hotel. He makes his debut on records with “Someday, Some- 
times, Somewhere” b/w “Monday Morning Blues” on the Treasure Tone label. 
. . . Frankie Laine will top the list of entertainers at KLAC’s Third Annual 
‘Holiday Hop’ Dec. 28th. Peggy King, Georgie Auld, June Christy, and The 
Jud Conlon Rhythmaires will also share the spotlight along with Les Brown’s 
orchestra. Complete proceeds will go to the Casa Colina Home for Crippled 
Children. . . . Lyrics have been written for the instrumental “Palsy Walsy” 
which George Siravo recorded a year ago. New arrangement of the tune fea- 
tures Gary Crosby on vocal. . . . Gordon Jenkins was visiting deejays and one- 
stops saying that his latest wax efforts “Slowly But Surely” is slowly but 
surely selling. . . . Abbott’s new hit recipe includes: The blending of a beau- 
tiful ballad plus an up-beat tempo number titled “I’m Bewildered” b/w “To 
Say You’re Mine.” Thoro mixing with the harmonious voices of The De Castro 
Sisters. A dash of seasoning by Skip Martin and his orchestra, under the 
watchful eye of chief Fabor Robison. Any gourmet of fine music should enjoy 
these delightful tuneful tidbits.

POPULAR 


NAT “KING” COLE SINGS— Capitol EAP 1-9120 (45 rpm EP) List: $1.47 

IF I GIVE MY HEART TO YOU; HOLD MY HAND; PAPA LOVES MAMBO; TEACH ME TONIGHT 
Nat Cole comes up with a tremendous EP that is already reported selling in 
vast quantities. It’s a wonderful platter including four of today’s top hits. 
Nat performs the numbers in his warm and tender fashion. Nelson Riddle and 
Billy May assist the songster. Should be one of the top selling EP’s of the 
year. Cole has a big following too. 

“THE MAN THAT GOT AWAY” — Georgia Gibbs — Mercury Records MG25199 
(1-10" LP) List: $3.00 

THE MAN THAT GOT AWAY; I'LL BE SEEING YOU; HOW DID HE LOOK; WHAT'LL I DO; 
BABY WON'T YOU PLEASE COME HOME; AFTER YOU'VE GONE; IT'S THE TALK OF THE TOWN. 
The little gal with a big voice turns out an LP that will provide much pleasure 
to any listening audience. Georgia Gibbs, who makes any tune a delight, 
scoops seven standards and the title song, “The Man That Got Away.” The 
latter tune is from the Judy Garland flic, “A Star Is Born.” LP will have a 
long life, avoiding dating by the use of the seven standards. Should rack up 
a good sale. 

“THAT OLD FEELING” — Malcolm Lockyer (piano) with drums and bass — 
London LB 1015 (10" LP) List: $3.95 

THAT OLD FEELING; TAKING A CHANCE ON LOVE; THEY CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM 
ME; THERE WAS A TIME; I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU; I'LL NEVER SMILE AGAIN; STARS 
FELL ON ALABAMA; YOU TURNED THE TABLES ON ME; IT'S EASY TO REMEMBER; EMBRACE- 
ABLE YOU; I'VE GOT MY LOVE TO KEEP ME WARM; TWO SLEEPY PEOPLE. 

Although Malcolm Lockyer is only in his early thirties, he has an impressive 
background in the music business that has helped label him one of England’s 
top pianists. Wonderfully adapt at the 88’s, Lockyer presents a dozen great 
standards in a soft romantic fashion creating a beautiful atmosphere. Great 
listening. Ralph Collier and Jock Cummings assist on the bass and drums, 
respectively. Wonderful background matter for an evening for two alone. 
All the tunes are love songs. 


“THE PAGE CAVANAUGH TRIO”— “X”-LXA-3027 (10" LP) List: $3.15 

ALL OF ME; I WOULD DO ANTHING FOR YOU; THE THREE BEARS; I WANT A LITTLE GIRL; 
THE MAN I LOVE; BACK IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD; NO MOON AT ALL; WALKIN' MY 
BABY BACK HOME. 

Although the Page Cavanaugh Trio may not be a big record group, they are 
nevertheless one of the more popular crews in clubs and theatres and therefore 
have a good following. On this LP, “X” captures the smooth easy going tech- 
nique of the boys as they fashion eight delightful numbers, most of them 
standards. The combo has a polished style that could click on singles with 
some good new material. 


BROADWAY SHOW 


“FANNY” — Presented by David Merx-ick and Joshua Logan and starring EZIO 
PINZA, WALTER SLEZAK, FLORENCE HENDERSON, and WILLIAM 
TABBERT — Music and lyrics by Harold Rome — RCA Victor LOC-1015 (12" 
LP) List: $5.72 

Victor comes up with a pi'ize package in the original cast recording of one of 
New York’s biggest musicals “Fanny.” Currently playing at the Majestic 
Theatre in the big city, the show received great acclaim from ci’itics and the 
present ticket sale indicates that the show will have a long and prosperous 
run. The biggest tune from the show to date is the title song which Eddie 
Fisher has brought up on to the lists. However, there are endless beautiful 
songs by Harold Rome capably handled by the all-star cast. An hour of listen- 
ing pleasure. Show goers will love “Fanny.” 


BRAHMS CONCERTO NO. 1, in D Minor, Op. 15— Artur Rubinstein— RCA 
Victor LM-1831 (1-12" LP) List: $5.95 

FRITZ REINER CONDUCTS THE CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA. 

The combining of such stellar musical names as Brahms, Artui’ Rubinstein 
and Fritz Reiner should guarantee a healthy sale. Although there are several 
good recordings of Brahms Concerto No. 1, the field is not satiated with them. 
Technically and musically this etching is a brilliant release. Stores should not 
hesitate to stock. 


JAZZ 

“THE NEW JACK TEAGARDEN PLAYS AND SINGS” — Vol. 2.— Urania 
UJLP-1002 (1-10" LP) List: $4.00 x 

The trombone man, whose history on records covers a very large part ot the 
jazz picture up to date, swings through four flavorsome items, After You ve 
Gone,” “Blue and Esotei-ic,” “Stars Fell on Alabama” and “Xmas Song.” Sun- 
porting cast is top-flight, consisting of Lucky Thompson, tenor sax; Ruby 
Braff, trumpet; Sol Yaged, clarinet; Milton, bass; Kenny Kersey, piano; Deneil 
Best, di’ums; and Sidney Gross, guitar. Last named is A & R for Urania wno 
handled the session. Heard here is a curious and novel mixture of what might 
be termed “modexn dixieland.” Whatever it is, we always liked the old Jacx 
Teagarden and when he takes his solos and sings his songs he’s still the old 
Jack Teagarden, which is good enough for us. Proper exposure should give 
this release a good sale. 


“GREAT SCOTT” — The Bobby Scott Trio — Bethlehem Recoi-ds — BCP 1004 

(1-10" LP) 

PEE WEE; PHIL'S MOOD; MOONBEAUX; TENDERLY; ODE TO MONK; POLKA DOTS AND 
MOONBEAMS; GONE WITH THE WIND; LULLABY OF BIRDLAND. 

An amazing performance from a tyro in years and a vet in experience. \ oung 
Bobby Scott, who has crowded more musical know-how into his seventeen 
years on this earth than most people acquire in a lifetime, does a fabulous 
job on the keyboard, accompanied by Whitey Mitchell, bass, and Bill Brad- 
ley, Jr., drums. An absorbing platter filled with delightful moments. The title 
of this album succinctly expresses our feelings. “Great Scott.”

Capitol Readies Op 
And One-Stop Package 
of Gleason Standards 

NEW YORK — Capitol Records will 
innovate another first when it intro- 
duces its new EP promotion, which is 
entitled “Jackie Gleason presents 
‘Special Operator Package’ ”. 

This is a program especially de- 
signed for extended play 45 rpm and 
single selections on 45 rpm. It is es- 
pecially designed for juke box oper- 
ators and one-stop operators. It will 
contain two separate packages of 
Jackie Gleason Mood Music. 

Capitol Records has prepared two 
packages of identical music of all time 
favorites and standard selections and 
one package will contain twenty sincle 
45 rpm selections while the other will 
contain ten 45 rpm EP records with 
two selections to a side. 

Each kit will contain a fan photo 
of Gleason and also a set of title strips 
will accompany the records. The pro- 
motion will be inaugurated on Monday, 
December 27th and in addition, Glea- 
son has sent all ops and one stop oper- 
ators a letter explaining the entire 
program. 

Although this package is being 
made especially for sale to juke box 
ons and. one-stop ops, packages are 
also available for consumer purchase. 

Tins will be one of the heaviest pro- 
motions Capitol Records has ever un- 
dertaken, and the entire promotion has 
been coordinated with the Gleason 
office so as to give every opportunity 
to the operators to program Gleason’s 
all time standards.

the week in the December 10 issue. The official town 
guide devoted a whole column to the activities of the 
“Mustache.” . . . Many luminaries in sports and show 
business entertained at the WMGM-52 Association

16, at the Tavern-on-The-Green. Bi'l Silbert, conduc- 
tor of the “Bill Silbert Show” over WMGM, as mas-

Santa Claus during the morning hours, and Jo Ranson, 
WMGM publicity director, was Kris Ivringle in the 
afternoon. . . . Disk jockeys throughout the country 
will soon be getting letters from Jackie Gleason, the 
honorary chairman, and Jerry Marshall, the chair- 
man of the National Disk Jockey Committee for the 1955 Heart Fund. Enclosed 
with the two letters is a reply card with which a jockey can order the special 
Disk Jockey Heart Fund Kit, a kit complete with live spot announcements, 
transcribed spots by top record artists, and a handy reference catalogue 
of records with “Heart” in their titles. Members of the 1955 National Disk

of the “Musical Market Basket” and the “Jerry Gaines Show” (WHAT-Phila- 
delphia, Pa.) has a cute contest going on. In conjunction with “Santa Claus 
and the Doodle Boop,” Jerry has asked his listeners to send in cards, letters, 
pictures and drawings of their conception of a Doodle Boop. Among some of 
the things he’s received so far — a pair of false teeth, a piece of putty with 
a marble stuck in the middle, a pair of tire chains with tassles and small scale 
model of a Christmas tree with jelly beans sprouting from its branches. . . . 
Art Lane is back with WHAT after two years in the army. Art will resume 
his duties on the Platter Party, Story Time, Gospel Train and Sunrise Sere-

TO THE CASH BOX READERS EVERYWHERE 
WE WANT TO SEND 

SINCERE GREETINGS AND BEST WISHES 

FOR 

“A VERY HAPPY HOLIDAY ” 

Toronto Topics . . . 

At this time of the year when the message of “Peace on Earth and Good- 
will to all Men” comes back to the minds of all of us, it is fitting to add our 
note of sincere appreciation for the many wonderful things that have been 
done by so many grand people in 1954 to open opportunities for Canadian 
singers, musicians, composers, and publishers. 

So many wonderful things have taken place and so many people are to be 
thanked for their parts in creating the opportunities that this column could 
not provide space for all of their names, I know that “names make news” but 
“deeds make friends” and so I want to take this opportunity of saying a 
heartfelt “thank you” to all of you. May 1955 return your cooperation a 
hundredfold.

Norman Prescott had joined its staff, 
his first assignment to be on the in- 
dependent’s weekend segments start- 
ing December 25.

and the WNEW offer, will be fea- 
tured on some already established 
WNEW programs as well as inaugu- 
rating several new ones. From 1:00 
to 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, he will

and Coming,” a program devoted to 
near-future hits appearing on the 
horizon and “Sinatra Sings.” The 
“Norman Prescott Show” from 5:00 
to 7:30 P.M. on Sundays will feature 
WNEW’s new addition with his own 
variety of chatter and music selec- 
tions. 

Prescott brought attention to him- 
self by activities ranging from the 
narration of children’s albums to the 
running of a contest which had Eddie 
Fisher’s Army hat (left at the disk 
jockey’s home) as first prize, an ef- 
fort which garnered 4,000 letters 
from Bostonians within a 2-week 
period. 


Lawrence Welk 
Extends Contest 


HOLLYWOOD — Due to the impres- 
sive response of his contest to inspire 
American youth to follow a musical 
career, Lawrence Welk has announced 
an extension to March 10 of his All 
American Music Competition. 

Originally set to wind up December 
10, many requests from prospective 
contestants both here in the states 
and in the military overseas, to ex- 
tend the offer, helped the noted band- 
leader to do just that, in order to 
let as many youngsters participate as 
possible. 

Personally sponsored by Lawrence 
Welk, this contest is to stimulate 
music among American youth, to dis- 
cover outstanding talent and to give 
such performers an opportunity to be 
seen and heard. 

Competition is open to anyone be- 
tween the ages of 18 and 25 years. 
Entry blanks are available at any 
music store in America and may be 
secured at the Aragon Ballroom, 
Ocean Park, California. 

Contestants may sing or play mu- 
sical instruments. Judges will be top 
musical personalities in Hollywood in- 
cluding John teGroen, President of 
the MMPA, Local 47 ; George Cates 
of Coral Records; Jack Owens; Bob 
Crosby; Jimmy McHugh; Paul Smith, 
musical director at Walt Disney’s and 
others. 

Many valuable prizes including an 
all expense paid vacation in Holly- 
wood as the guest of Lawrence Welk, 
a Welk cash award of $500.00, a tele- 
vision appearance on the Welk KTLA 
show, a Coral Record of the winning 
contestant and many others which will 
be found listed on the entry blank. 


Mercury Issues Deejay LP 


CHICAGO — Mercury Records is- 
sued last week its first in a series of 
records that will aid the disk jockey 
in his programming chores and at the 
same time get more Mercury records 
played. 

The disk is Volume 1 of the series 
which is being called “Hit Parade”. 
The record is a 33 1/3 rpm disk and 
includes eight singles which are cur- 
rently doing big things for the disk- 
ery. 

The songs featured are: “Make 

Yourself Comfortable” — Sarah 
Vaughan; “Bongo Guitar” — Ralph 
Marterie; “Mama Doll Song” — Patti 
Page; “Yours” — Dick Contino; “The 
Barking Dog” — Crewcuts; “Mambo 
Baby” — Georgia Gibbs; “Love Me To- 
night” — Eddy Howard; and “Pupa- 
lina” — the Gaylords. 

On the back of the attractive two- 
color sleeve, Kenny Myers of Mer- 
cury requests that dee jays write to 
him as to their reaction to this type 
of LP. If the reactions are favorable, 
the diskery will continue the service. 


Camden Sets Dealer 
Competition 


NEW YORK- — Prizes in a recently 
announced Camden Records dealer 
contest range from a $6.75 billfold 
to a cash award of $250. In between 
there are fifty-two other prizes. The 
winning dealer in the national com- 
petition gets the cash prize, while 
each l-ecord distributor picks a local 
winner who receives a prize from Cam- 
den. 

“The Six Symphonies of Tchaikov- 
sky,” a six 12” Long Play set pack- 
aged in a hinged box and retailing 
for $10.98 is one of the pieces of 
merchandise around which the com- 
petition is built. A similar package, 
to be announced in February, will also 
figure in the contest. 

Awards in the competition go to the 
dealer in each distributor area who 
does the best job on the two packages. 
Many elements, such as window and 
counter display, as well as retail move- 
ment, figure in the contest. Since it 
is possible that a small neighborhood 
store could conceivably do the best 
local job, awards are made on a grad- 
uated basis, depending on the amount 
of merchandise sold. 


NIGHTCLUB ROUNDUP 


Ellington & Hamilton 
At Basin Street, N. Y. 

NEW YORK— Basin Street has a 
star studded show parading across 
the stage for the next two weeks. 
Loaded with talent, the attractions 
should prove strong draw for the 
Holiday crowd. 

Heading the list, is Duke Ellington, 
a holdover from the last three weeks 
show, with holdover Don Shirley from 
the previous Ellington show, and the 
new exciting personality to hit the 
disk field, Roy Hamilton. 

Ellington is of course Ellington, 
whose tunes can be played for his 
entire five week stint without repeat- 
ing. One of the highlights of the even- 
ing is the pyrotechnical drum display 
of Louie Bellson, currently with the 
Ellington aggregation, in a 15 minute 
solo that had the house rocking and 
Bellson exhausted. 

Rov Hamilton sang a repertoire 
completely from his record releases 
building up to the big one, his first 
smash, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. 
Hamilton, a fine looking lad described 
by Ellington as the foremost expo- 
nent of Folk Modern, comes through 
vocally in fine style. Although he still 
has some rough edges to be smoothed, 
his stage presence is remarkable con- 
sidering he’s only been in the busi- 
ness less than a year.

NEW YORK: 

The r & b record biz, on the slow side for several months, awoke with a 
bang for the Christmas season according to the many distribs and manu- 
facturers we’ve spoken to. A1 Silver, Herald Records, Hipping because ol the 
upsurge of business that has revived all his current releases. A1 has been 
insisting from the release date that the Charlie & Ray "l Love \ ou Madly 
etching would be a hit. Current excitement makes it look like the platter is 
finally on the move. New York, usually not the city to break a record, has 
begun to order and re-order in large quantities. A1 also reveals the diskery 
has outgrown its current quarters and will move to the old CBS building at 
Ki87 Broadway after the first of the year. The Messrs. Silver, Angel and 
Braverman will have a much larger layout including a soundproof rehearsal 
hall. . . . Expect a rash of top notch releases to hit the distribs from now on. 
Manufacturers were withholding releases during the past few weeks until 
the Christmas business had been gotten out of the way. Most of them are now 
ready to go. Atlantic Records is one of the first to release with a hard hitting 
trio consisting of Ruth Brown, Rav Charles and Atlantic’s introductory offer- 
ing of Ivory Joe Hunter. Ruth Brown’s will be “I Bye Bye Young Man” and 
“Ever Since My Baby’s Been Gone.” Charles may have his greatest potential 
hit in “Come Back” and “I’ve Got A Woman,” and 
Ivory Joe bows with “It May Sound Silly” and “I 
Got To Learn To Do The Mambo.” Sidelight on Ray 
Charles’ “Come Back” etching. Seems Ray, who had 
a couple of dubs for himself, couldn’t contain his 
enthusiasm and let his friend, Jockey Jack (WERD- 
Atlanta, Ga.), preview it. Jockey Jack played it on 
the air 41 times in two hours and as a result the 
demand has been sensational even before release. . . . 
Lou Sprung, Baton Records, reports his Rivileers’ 
“For Sentimental Reasons,” is definitely selling in hit 
proportions in New York and Los Angeles. Also elated 
at breaking in Atlanta, first of the Southern cities. 

. . . Don Robey also joins the after Christmas release 
rush with six new disks including the new Johnny 
Ace “Pledging My Love” and “No Money.” A new 
Johnny Ace release is always news. In the meantime, 
Irv Marcus, headquartering in' New York, is still working on and racking up 
big orders on Ace’s current best seller, “Never Let Me Go.” . . . That session 
Bobby Shad cut last week with Sarah Vaughan was a humdinger, according 
to Bobby, and several “hot” sides were the result. . . . George Goldner, Rama 
Records, enthusiastic as he tells of The Crows “Baby Doll” breaking out with 
force in Detroit. Deck suddenly took off after a very quiet period, which is 
reminiscent of their previous smash “Gee.” Goldner also bubbling as he tells 
of his increased mambo catalogue sale over 1953. “It was a good year, but 
we’re looking forward to a better one in 1955.” . . . Atlantic Records announced 
the signing of a new group from Norfolk, Va., The Shieks. Lads are managed 
by Frank Guida proprietor of Birdland Record Shop in Norfolk. . . . Covers 
on “Tweedlee Dee” mount as the tune acting like another pop hit to add to 
the laurels of Atlantic Records. Original by Lavern Baker selling in large 
doses, both pop and R & B. . . . Herman Lubinsky, Savoy Records, excited as 
he tells of the continued strong sales of Wilbert Harrison’s “Don’t Drop It.” 
Says he’s already gone over 100,000. . . . Original Records getting a surprise 
release ready for all their distribs shortly after the first of the year. . . . Alan 
Freed readying his first r & b show for the St. Nicholas Ballroom January 
14 and 15. Lined up so far are Joe Turner, the Drifters, Clovers, the Moonglows, 
the Moon’ighters, Buddy and Ella Johnson, Nolan Lewis, Danny Overbea, 
Fats Domino, Red Prysock and the Harptones. Condolences to George Goldner, 
who lost his mother this week. 



BUDDY JOHNSON 


CHICAGO: 

As we optimistically greet the oncoming year, we thought we would bring 
to the trade the thoughts and ideas of the people in Our Town, so we called 
different of these people who had the following to say: Leonard Chess of Chess/ 
Checker Records who believes that his Biggest Chess hit was “Sincerely” by 
The Moon slows, while Checker’s top tune for ’54 was “Reconsider Baby” by 
Lowell Fulson, said, H would like to thank the disc jockeys, operators and 
dealers for making 1954 one of the biggest years in 
our history and both Phil and myself will do all in 
our power to bring to you in the trade as many good 
disks as is in our power to produce.” . . . Another local 
record manufacturer which has enjoyed a highly 
successful year Is the Vee-Jay diskery. We spoke 
to Jimmy Bracken of this firm who had the following 
to say. “We feel that it was more than a lucky break 
for us to have had “Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight” 
by The Spaniels which definitely established us as 
a solid firm. We want to thank everyone who has 


helped us to grow. We feel confident that we are grow- 
ing stronger and bigger daily and hope that ’55 will 
continue in the same vein.” . . . Milt Salstone of M. S. 

Distributing Company, whose ”54 hits included “Cherry 
Pie” by Marvin and Johnny on Modern; “You’re 
The One” by The Spiders on Imperial and the smash, 

“Marie” by The 4 Tunes on Jubilee had this to say: 

“I feel a good training program throughout the trade is called for 


Happy 

New 

Year 


“I Love My Mama 







NEW YORK — When Tommy Leonetti, young Capitol Recording star was 
in New York, he visited with the composer of his latest release, Henry Jerome. 
Ditty, “I Love My Mama,” was penned by Jerome, who records for MGM 
Records and is bandleader at the Hotel Edison. 



BILLY WARD & 
THE DOMINOES 


. The rhythm and blues bouncer “0-0 Wah” has been covered in the POP 
field by Mell Williams and The Montclairs on Decca. 
Material was picked for the group by George Motolla, 
sales manager for Eisley sales, local Lincoln-Mercury 
dealer. . . . A1 Sherman, Record Sales head, has taken 
over Southwest distribution for label “X”. Bob Stern 
has been appointed to supervise X’s West Coast pro- 
motion. He continues to handle his other accounts 
along with this new post. . . . Specialty Records are 
closing out the year with three big sellers. First is 
Percy Mayfield’s “You Were Lyin’ To Me”. Next comes 
their latest by Roy Milton titled “Tell It Like It Is”. 
The third number that is clicking saleswise is a spirit- 
ual by The Harmonettes “You Must Be Born Again”. 
Art Rupe has been busy getting ready a new batch of 
releases for the first of the year which he admits are 
pretty terrific. . . . Final plans are being made by 
B. B. King for a big Holiday farewell dance at the 
Elks Hall Dec. 27th. This will be his last West Coast 
date before heading East again. Also on the program with him will be 
The Flairs, The Medallions and Roy Brown, who will come down from 
Holiday dates in Oakland to appear on the show. Many other 
top artists ai'e also expected to be pi'esent for the show. . . . While 
looking foi'ward to an even greater year in 1955, Leo and Eddie Mesner ai’e 
sitting on top of The Five Pearls’ “Please Let Me Know” which is showing 
strong possibilities of breaking wide open as a hit. Leo is hoping the number 
will also break into the POP field. . . . The Platters were so successful during 
their i-ecent two day engagement at Larry Potter’s Supper Club that they are 
slated for a return two week stand starting Jan. 28th. . . . Ralph Bass, just 
back from Cincinnati, was telling about the big policy meeting back at the 
King Records plant. Sid Nathan called in all his A & R men for the event. 
Those present included Henry Stone, Carl Lebow, Henry Glover and Bass. 
While in the East Bass also cut several new sides with The Lamplighters which 
will be x'eleased in January. . . . Luis Rivera, Jazz organist, l’ecently signed 
with Federal Records for a new series of TP’s, EP’s and singles. . . Pretty 
Ruth Burch, the new gal behind the counter at King Records, is receiving 
nothing but praises from her boss Milt Weiss. She is the sister of Mary Helman, 


manager of Johnson’s Recoi’d City in Compton. 


JAR JOTS 


Benny Goodman seen at Basin Street opening with Duke Ellington, Roy 
Hamilton and Don Shirley. Benny will be longhair soloist with the Symphony 
of the Air at Carnegie Hall January 19. Leonard Bernstein will conduct. . . . 
That Basin Sti’eet show was a humdinger. Ellington’s music is a joy, Shirley 
a very talented youngster and Roy Hamilton providing many exciting vocal 
moments. His spot could be speeded up by a change of several numbers but 
he finished in a blaze of glory with his big hit, “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” 
... Is George Shearing moving over to Capitol ? . . . With the addition of 
Nesuhi Ertegun to the Atlantic label, it is pretty definite the diskery will 
make a big move in the direction of jazz. 


★ ★ ★ "Ar 


★ ★★★★★★★★ 


at this 

time in order to re-establish R & B at the point I feel it once was and hope 
that in the coming year the manufacturers will concentrate more heavily on 
each and every release they turn out.” . . . And, finally, a New Year Message 
from Ernie Leaner of United Record Distribs. “We leave 1954 and all the 
bouquets that were tossed to the outstanding now fade, allowing a new bud 
to blossom and bring success, prosperity and happiness to everyone in 1955.” 
. . . And mav we add to that simply, “HAPPY NEW YEAR AND MAY ’55 
BE FILLED WITH HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS.” 


LOS ANGELES: 

LOS ANGELES — The line which separates the R & B and POP fields is 
becoming thinner and thinner as moi'e and moi'e R & B hits break over into 
the POP field. . . . Two top attractions appeared in Los Angeles over the 
Holidays. The Clovers along with Jim Wynn and his band held down the snot- 
light at The Five Four Ballroom. Over at the Savoy Ballroom Billy Ward 
and the Dominos were held over along with Charles Brown and his Orchestra.

LINDA HAYES 
(Hollywood Records 1027) 

© •‘DARLING ANGEL” (2:55) 
[Golden State BMI — • Johnnie 
Getz] Linda Hayes sings a slow blues 
with lots of feeling. A melodic effort 
that makes a pretty wax. 

© “CHANGE OF HEART” (2:45) 
[Golden State BMI — Johnnie 
Getz] The Hip is an up-tempo effort 
and Miss Hayes does a smart hard 
hitting job. 


THE TWIGS 
Hollywood Records 1026) 

® “LOVER BOY” (2:30) [Golden 
State BMI— M. Williams] The 
Twigs sing a slow blues featuring the 
lead voice of Sonny Woods. Ok deck. 

© “WONDERFUL WORLD” (2:35) 
[Golden State BMI — Haywood] 
Frank Haywood takes over the lead 
on this plate as the laris sing out 
an easy bouncer. Deck has a pop 
feeling on the vocal portion although 
the horn in the break is blues and 
nothing else. 


THE FIVE SCAMPS 
(Okeh 7049) 

] “RED HOT” (2:50) [Algonquin 
Music-Robinson, Whitcomb] The 
Five Scamps blend on a driving fast 
beat. Wild sound is effected by shouts, 
handclaps and a high-riding horn. 
Effective wax. 

“WITH ALL MY HEART” (2:55) 
[Marvin Litmas-Sherman, Pilken- 
ton] Backer-upper is a change of pace. 
The wax is mellow as the lads present 
a soft and tender item. A little draggy 
but easv listening. 


JOHNNY TORRENCE 
(With The Jewels) 

(R and B 1306) 

“ROSALIE” (2:19) [K & S BMI 
— Torrence] Johnny Torrence 
handles the lead as he and the Jewels 
bang out a medium beat rocker in 
energetic styling. Strong wax that 
could cut itself a hunk of action. 

. “LIVING FROM DAY TO DAY” 
W (2:23) [Granite BMI — Torrence] 
The Jewels, with Torrence again lead 
voice, chant a slow blues in sorrowful 
manner. 


THE FOUR SPEEDS 
(DeLuxe 6070) 

© “THE GIRLS BACK HOME” 
(2:23) [Franlin BMI — Benny 
Goodwin] The Four Speeds, making 
their bow on records, do so with lots 
of appeal Lead is strong and smooth, 
the group backs him in good style and 
the general effect is potent. Good wax. 

“I NEED YOU BABY” (2:37) 
[Franlin BMI — James Hartley] 
Another good effort by the new group. 
Of a slower tempo the item has a 
strong beat. Good initial effort.

B. B. "BLUES BOY" 
(RPM 421) 


KING 


# B. B. King has a piece of ma- 
terial tailor made for his talents 
in “Every Day I Have The Blues.” 
King lends his inimitable talents 
to the middle tempo blues, singing 
of his miseries with the abilities 
that have made him a top blues 


entertainer. The reverse side, 
“Sneakin’ Around,” is another top 
performance. King is mellow as he 
sings the pretty ballad. He has 
two powerful pieces of ammunition 
to gun down his current national 
success, “You Upset Me, Baby.”

[Arc BMI— Overbea] 

“MY LOVE” (2:40) 

[Arc BMI — Overbea] 

DANNY OVERBEA 
(Checker 308) 


Q Danny Overbea is making 
pitches at both pop and r & b with 
this effort titled, "A Toast To 
Lovers.” Danny’s sweet and emo- 
tional laden delivery comes through 
with great effectiveness. It could be 
a really big one for the chanter. The 


flip, “My Love,” is a happy mambo 
well done. Overbea’s use of a 
mambo as the backer-upper is good 
planning. “A Toast” is the side, 
and the mambo dance item should 
help keep the sales mounting. 



ART FARMER QUARTET 
(Prestige 906) 

© "AUTUMN NOCTURNE” (2:49) 
[Myrow] Art Farmer and his 
quarter softly dish up a modern treat- 
ment of a slow ditty. Art’s trumpet 
etches sweetly with in the mood back- 
ing from Wynton Kelly, piano; Addi- 
son Farmer, bass; Herby Lovelle, 
drums. 

|?|“I WALK ALONE” (2:45) [Wil- 
son] The lovely oldie is given the 


| same tender carressing treatment by 
the foursome. Good evergreen. 

JOE HOLIDAY 
(Prestige 901 ) 

“IT MIGHT AS WELL BE 
SPRING” (2:40) and 2:49) Parts 
one and two [ — Rodgers] Joe Holiday 
dishes up an intriguing treatment of 
the lush Rodgers standard with a 
mambo tempo and his effectual horn. 
A two sided disk with appeal on both 
sides. 


THE CASH BOX 


BEST BETS 




In the opinion of The Cash Box music staff, records listed below, in addi- 
tion to the "Disk" and "Sleeper" Of The W eek, are those most likely to 
achieve popularity. 


ac 


* "ROSALIE" 

★ "SCHOOL GIRL" 
"ONE MISTAKE" 


Johnny Torrence 
The "5" Royales 


R and B 1306 
King 4762 


JIMMY TYLER ORCHESTRA 
(Federal 12199) 

“CALLIN’ ALL CHICKENS” 
(2:41) [Jay & Cee BMI — Jimmy 
Tyler] A clever novelty instrumental. 
Medium tempo wax that is good fodder 
for the dance crowd. 

® “SKEEDLE-LUM-BUM” (2:39) 
[Jay & Cee BMI — Tyler-Martin] 
A similar tempo bouncer with chants 
from the boys in the ork. Sax car- 
ries the solo voice throughout. Ok deck. 


THE “5” ROYALES 
(King 4762) 

© “SCHOOL GIRL” (2:44) [Franlin 
BMI — Lowman Pauling] The “5” 
Royales sing a middle beat bouncer 
that is loaded. A happy performance 
that might prove a big one for the 
group. 

“ONE MISTAKE” The “5” 
Royales get down to earth with 
a slow blues done very effectively. 
The lads really sink their teeth into 
this one and the result is a two sided 
offering, either of which could hit. 



THE JORDANAIRES 
(Decca 29188) 

® “ROCK MY SOUL IN THE 
BOSOM OF ABRAHAM” (2:17) 
The Jordanaires etch a stirring read- 
ing of a quick beat syncopated reli- 
gious item. 

® “NQAH” (2:21) [P. D.J The 

Jordanaires dish up the oldie with 
flavor that will appeal more to the 
pop market. 


SWANEE RIVER BOYS 
(King 1401) 

® “I WANNA HEAR” (2:35) 
[Mar-Kay BMI — Buford Abner] 
The Swanee River Boys blend effec- 
tively on a beaty but soft treatment 
i-of a middle beat religious piece. 
Syncopated wax. 

® “I GOT TIRED” (2:40) [Mar-Kay 
BMI — Buford Abner] A similar 
item, beautifully done, of a slower 
tempo. 


FAIRFIELD FOUR 
(Dot 1228) 

lf|“WE NEVER GROW OLD” 
(2:25) [Traditional] The Fair- 
field Four create an excitement with 
their treatment of the traditional 
gospel tune. Ok deck. 

/Rh “JESUS IN HEAVEN” (2:46) 
WW’ [Traditional] A similar treatment 
of a slightly faster beat.

Lucky Millinder Signs 
With King Records 

Lucky Millinder, a prominent name 
in the band business for more than 
20 years, has signed a recording con- 
tract with King Records. 

Lucky first came into prominence 
as a recording star back in the 30’s 
when he was in charge of ‘Mills Blue 
Ribbon Band’ and recorded the out- 
standing hit “Ride Red Ride”. 

Shortly thereafter he organized his 
own band and gave to the music world 
such records as: “Big Fat Mama”, 
“Let’m Roll Again”, “Who Threw The 
Whiskey In The Well”, “Waiting Just 
For You”, and many others. 

Lucky Millinder had as vocalists at 
one time or another Ruth Brown, Anis- 
teen Allen, Wynonie Harris, Savannah 
Churchill, Bull Moose Jackson, and the 
deceased Trevor Bacon. 

Lucky is now busy forming a band 
which he describes as having all record 
appeal. King is expecting to have rec- 
ords on Millinder and his band the 
first part of 1955. 

How International 
Can You Get? 


NEW YORK — As of yesterday the 
world-renowned “Malaguena”, com- 
posed by the Cuban Ernesto Lecuona 
and published by the American Ed- 
wark B. Marks Music Corporation, has 
been recorded 347 times. The 348th 
is from a master, pressed by Polydor, 
a German recording company. Decca 
is issuing the platter here and it has 
caused a great stirring of excitement 
in the diskery as well as on the pub’s 
premises. Caterina Valente, an Italian 
thrush who sings the Lecuona piece 
in German and who is backed by an 
Austrian symphonic orchestra are the 
two big reasons. 

While there have been many vocal- 
ists who have sung “Malaguena” in 
many languages, none to-date has quite 
rung the bell. This one by Caterina 
Valente unquestionably has class vows 
Herb Marks and he and the brass at 
Decca are pulling all the stops to cata- 
pult this latest “Malaguena” to the top. 

Home Town Boy 
Makes Good 

MIAMI — “Home Town Boy Makes 
Good” is more than a cliche here in 
connection with the new tune “Un- 
suspecting Heart”. Feature stories in 
the high school paper and weekly 
newspapers display pictures and com- 
ments from local friends and neigh- 
bors of Bob Singer, the Miami native 
responsible for the song’s publication 
by Teddy Powell of the Tee Pee Music 
Co. of New York. The local shops are 
playing all three records. The Sunny 
Gale and Hugo Winterhalter version 
is gaining in popularity for the RCA- 
Victor disk. The Terri Stevens’ ver- 
sion ranks high, and Georgie Shaw’s 
Decca recording of “Unsuspecting 
Heart” is gaining ground. 


Harry James Without Trumpet 


HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. — Harry 
James is in negotiation with CBS to 
star in a TV film series which will 
utilize his dramatic and comedy serv- 
ices and does not call for the use of 
his trumpet. 

Twist in getting James to drop the 
trumpet and concentrate on acting 
came about as a result of his comedy 
bits on the recent “Shower of Stars”, 
which invoked favorable comment on 
the part of the Chrysler and CBS 
execs.

Don Kelly Helped Make “Melody of Love” 



DON KELLY 

ST. PAUL, MINN. — After a song 
has become a hit, it’s always inter- 
esting to find out how and why it 


did catch on. Here is WLOL disk 
jockey Don Kelly’s story of how he 
accidentally stumbled upon “Melody 
Of Love” and started it up the lad- 
der in the St. Paul and Minneapolis 
areas. 

When Kelly received the Dot dee jay 
pressing of the Billy Vaughn record 
a number of weeks ago, he didn’t 
even take time out to audition it. As 
a matter of fact, he threw it into 
the waste basket. However, the same 
day, he was desperate for some new 
“schmaltz” on his morning “Mr. Mu- 
sic” show, so he retrieved the disk 
from the trash, played it, and sched- 
uled it for immediate use. 

After one spin, the phones started 
ringing and everyone wanted to know 
who was playing the song and where 
it could be bought. 

Kelly reports that for many weeks 
WLOL was the only station in town 
playing the tune. 

The rest is now history. “Melody 
Of Love” caught like wild fire in the 
Twin Cities and is now spreading 
throughout the country. Out of the 
trash can and into the hit lists. 


Disk Jockeys Aid 
Heart Fund 


Luminaries Entertain At 
WMGM-52 Association 
Holiday Party 


NEW YORK — Disk jockeys 
throughout the country will soon be 
getting letters from Jackie Gleason, 
the honoray chairman, and Jerry Mar- 
shall, the chairman, of the National 
Disk Jockey Committee for the 1955 
Heart Fund. And as may be expected, 
the letters will refer to next year’s 
drive to conquer heart disease, Amer- 
ica’s Number One Killer. 

Last year, America’s dee jays col- 
lectively did a yeoman’s job in pro- 
moting the drive against the dreaded 
disease. This year, Gleason and Mar- 
shall are asking jockeys to do a big- 
ger job than on their first Heart Fund 
venture last year. 

Enclosed with the two letters is a 
reply card with which a jockey can 
order the special Disk Jockey Heart 
Fund Kit, a kit complete with live 
spot announcements, transcribed spots 
by top record artists, and a handy 
reference catalogue of records with 
“Heart” in their titles. 

In addition to information about the 
kit, dee jays are being requested to 
offer their number one and two 
choices for King of Hearts and Queen 
of Hearts, the honors which Perry 
Como and Dinah Shore walked off 
with last year. 

Gleason hopes to salute the disk 
jockey’s Heart Fund campaign and 
spotlight the King and Queen in per- 
son on his TV show in February. 

Members of 1955 National Disk 
Jockey Committee include Art Brown, 
WWDC, Washington; Bill Burns, 
WQAM, Miami; Carl DeSuze, WBZ, 
Boston; Gordon Eaton, WCCO, Min- 
neapolis; Arty Kay, WVLK, Lexing- 
ton; Bob McKeehan, KCNA, Tucson; 
Howard Miller, WIND, Chicago; Joe 
Mulvihill (1954’s Chairman), WTAM, 
Cleveland; Art Pallan, WWSW, Pitts- 
burgh; George Sanders, KRKD, Los 
Angeles; Jack Williams, WBRC, 
Birmingham. 

Members of the Record Industry 
Advisory Council for the Heart Fund 
include Mike Conner, Decca; Sol Hand- 
werger, MGM; Dick Linke, Capitol: 
Bernie Miller, RCA Victor; and Ar- 
thur Schwartz, Columbia. 


NEW YORK — Many luminaries in 
sports and show business entertained 
at the WMGM — 52 Association of New 
York Christmas Party for hospitalized 
servicemen and disabled veterans on 
Wednesday, Dec. 16th, at the Tavern- 
On The-Green. 

Bill Silbert, conductor of the “Bill 
Silbert Show” over WMGM, as master 
of ceremonies, introduced the follow- 
ing: Betty Cox, Terri Stevens, Sandy 
Solo and Tom Stewart; Russ Carroc- 
cio, guard on the New York Football 
Giants; Gene Shue and Jack Turner, 
guards on the New York Knicker- 
bockers; Jim Gordon, WMGM sports- 
caster, and Nat Asch, WMGM sports 
director. 

Music for the occasion was provided 
by the WMGM Orchestra under the 
dh-ection of Joel Herron. Ted Brown, 
star of the “Ted Brown Show” on 
WMGM, served as Santa Claus dur- 
ing the morning hours, and Jo Ran- 
scn, WMGM publicity director, was 
Kris Kringle in the afternoon. 

The 450 guests, including wives and 
children, came from naval and army 
hospitals throughout the Eastern 
states as well as from the disabled 
veterans associations in the metropoli- 
tan area. Every guest received gifts 
contributed by WMGM’s listeners. 

The 52 Association of New York, 
which coordinated the party, is ded- 
icated to helping the sick and 
wounded soldiers, sailors and marines 
from local service hospitals. The Wo- 
men’s Auxiliary also plays an im- 
portant role in all these activities. 


Tico Reissues DeCastro Disk 


NEW YORK- — George Goldner, Tico 
Records, announced this week that he 
would reissue the DeCastro Sisters 
“Tonight I Am In Heaven” and “I 
Do.” 

Goldner issued the Latin tunes about 
two years ago with English lyrics. 
The tunes, says Goldner, were the two 
biggest hits in Latin and South Amer- 
ica in the past ten years. The new 
release has been remastered and the 
background has been revised. 

The DeCastros are currently pos- 
sessors of a national hit, “Teach Me 
Tonight” on Abbott Records.

CINCINNATI CUT UPS 


With a fresh snow falling- on the 
Queen City this week end, it looks 
like we will be in for a White Christ- 
mas. So this evening I gathered 
Mother and our four Children around 
the old Mathusl.ek Orchestral to do a 
bit of caroling- before settling down 
to writing this weekly column, all of 
which has put me in a holiday mood. 

. . . The Davis Sisters’ (Victor) re- 
cording “Christmas Boogie” is getting 
a lot of spins on juke boxes and radio 
and is high on Jimmie William’s Coun- 
try hit parade. ... A few years ago 
around these parts we had a very fine 
young male quartet, the William’s 
Brothers. It’s very gratifying to know 
that the youngest Andy is still singing 
and can be heard on “To-Night” with 
Steve Allen thru WLW-D. . . . There’s 
a new pilot on “Mission Midnight” 
John Louis, who does a great job thru 
the long hours after midnight in spite 
of the fact that the records he spins 
are not of his own choosing. ... A 
new tune “Mary’s Little Boy” written 
by Dolphia Hines was sung very 
beautifully by the Geer Sisters (“X”) 
on WLM’s Hayride. (A & R men 
Note: Here’s a good tune for next 
Christmas) The Sisters were in 
Chicago last week appearing on 
WBKB-TV’s Courtesy Hour. . . . Nel- 
son King worked Detroit this week 
end with Brownie Reynolds, Jimmie 
Martin and the Osborn Brothers (Vic- 
tor) on the Casey Clark show. . . . 
Ruth Lyon’s Christmas fund fo" gifts 
and toys to hospitalized children is 
expected to reach the hundred thou- 
sand dollar stage soon. Contributions 
are sent in by her listeners. . . . Nellie 
Lutcher and Faron Young were guests 
on Pee-Wee King’s Flying W Show. 
. . . No commercials will be the format 
on WCKY’s Jamboree Christmas and 
New Years eve’s with Marty Roberts, 
Nelson King, and George Winters do- 
ing the usual bang up job of spinning 
records and greetings from all the 
Country Folks. ... So for the holi- 
days, may I wish you my readers 
many Christmas Roses. 


Acuff-Rose Not For Sale 


NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE— Wes- 
ley Rose of Acuff-Rose Publishing- 
Company, this city, has officially an- 
nounced that the publishing firm is 
definitely not for sale. This statement 
came on the heels of several inquiries 
wanting to know if the Acuff-Rose 
firm was up for sale! Rose further 
announced that the publishing com- 
pany will continue as in the past, 
operating under the same policy, etc. 
Also, Hickory Records, organized by 
the late Fred Rose, will continue in 
operation. 


The Show Must Go On 


Was there ever a time when you felt 
so blue 

That You wanted to Cry and cry? 

Have you felt that the whole world 
was down on you? 

Well — I know how you’ve felt — 
so have I. 

I've been so darn lonely that I’d given 
up hope, 

But I still faced the world with 
a smile. 

I’ve had to keep going — not let anyone 
know 

And sometimes it seemed hardly 
worthwhile 

The public don’t know what your true 
feelings are, 

They expect you to laugh and 
be gay. 

They think your life care free and 
’way above par 

And their faith you must never 
betray. 

“The Show must go on” — That’s the 
cry of the stage — 

Come heartache — ! pome sorrow — 
come pain — 

No matter what happens, it’s the price 
you must pay, 

If their confidence you would 
maintain. 

If only sometimes they could look deep 
inside, 

They’d be so suprised when they’d 
find; 

A heart that could hurt — while a smile 
would misguide, 

And they’d wonder why they were 
so blind.

January 1 , 1955 



NEW YORK — CHICAGO — From 
“Here and There” and all over the 
world, The Cash Box has received 
loads of cards and letters, all extend- 
ing the season’s greetings to us and 
our staff. We would like to pass along 
The Cash Box’ best wishes to all for 
a most profitable, healthful and happy 
1955. 



NEW YORK — What’s the economic 
picture for 1955 ? Here’s what the 
two most important basic industries 
look for. STEEL: Production should 
average somewhere between 75 and 
slightly over 80 per cent of capacity, 
which would be measurably better 
than the 72 per cent average rate in- 
dicated for 1954. AUTO: The industry 
is on record as predicting that output 
in 1955 will be at least as good as in 
1954, but Harlow H. Curtice, pres- 
ident of General Motors, thinks pro- 
duction next year will be about 5.8 
million vehicles — 10 per cent more 
than the indicated total for 1954. 



WASHINGTON, D. C.— As coin 
firms and inventors are continually 
turning out new products, we thought 
it would be interesting to report the 
conditions as they exist today at the 
Patent Office. The New York Times 
reports “The -work of the Patent Office 
has become so clogged that the condi- 
tion is openly deplored by patent law- 
yers and the inventors they represent.” 
The number of patent applications 
awaiting action by the Patent Office 
examiners, it is stated, has increased 
in two years by more than 34,000. The 
annual report of Robert C. Watson, 
Commissioner of Patents, estimates 
that more than 131,000 applications 
await attention by the examiners, and 
the total pending cases, including 
those waiting replies from attorneys, 
exceeds 204,000. The average time 
needed to get a patent was three years 
and seven months at the time of the 
last computation, but it is stated the 
process is probably much slower to- 
day. 


NEW YORK — For our friends who, 
in their spare time (or full time) are 
thinking of hunting for uranium, the 
Radiac Company, 489 Fifth Ave., New 
York, is producing a new Geiger coun- 
ter specifically designed for uranium 
and thorium prospecting. 



So speedily — almost without warning — 
the New Year’s here. 

Another year. Another adventure. 

Twelve more months, fifty-two weeks, 
three hundred and sixty-five days of love, 
anxiety, agony, happiness, tragedy, great- 
ness, achievement, despair, and the many 
other emotions which make up a year. 

It’s a New Year. So many are happy to 
have survived. Even if it did seem to come 
so much faster than so many expected it to 
come. 

The slogan for this industry for this New 
Year, as far as this publication is concerned, 
should be: 

BE MORE ALIVE IN ’55! 

Why? Simply because it seems this in- 
dustry has garnered so many garlands of 
greatness which have, in turn, brought on 
much jealousy, greed and hate. 

Because of these facts, it is up to each 
and every member of the industry, to BE 
MORE ALIVE IN ’55! 

To protect the leadership that has been 
won. To protect families, employees and 
friends. To assure continued good times 
ahead. To be certain that business will be 
happy and profitable when ’55 is over. 

1955 is the year for better public rela- 
tions. 1955 is the year for closer integration 

and understanding with the peoples of the 
nation. 

1955 is the year to completely, absolutely 
and wholeheartedly champion the correct 


course for the industry. 

Predictions already advanced by many of 
the famous is that ’55 will be one of the 
most outstanding years of all time. 

Because ’55 will see the changeover from 
one type economy to another. 

Because ’55 will be the year when alert- 
ness and watchfulness is going to count 
most. 

It behooves one and all to be alive to the 
possibilities and the opportunities that are 
facing this great nation. 

'55 is a year of fatalism for many, so say 
the seers and further, they state, ’55 is the 
year when much that is strong may become 
weak, while that which is weak may become 
strong. 

Therefore as this New Year dawns, in 
all of its infant glory, those who are here 
should prepare to: 

BE MORE ALIVE FOR ’55!!! 

Remain carefully considerate of fellow 
men. 

Remain just as carefully considerate of 
any new and revolutionary changes which 
might suddenly be recommended. 

Remain as true to oneself as is possible. 

Remain honest w T ith oneself. 

Remain grateful — that another year has 
come and gone. 

BE MORE ALIVE IN ’55!!

DOLLAR VALUE FALLS 


Economists Claim Present Dollar’s Purchasing Power Now 
Equal to 1939 Half Dollar. This 50% Drop In Value Makes 
Present Dime Worth Same As ’39 Nickel. 

Urge Musk Ops: "Lets Get A Nickel A Play Again" 


Miami Operators Combat 
Juvenile Delinquency 


CHICAGO — As the New Year 
dawns, reports come from economists 
that the American dollar s purchasing 
power is only equal to the 1939 half- 
dollar. 

In short, while expenses and over- 
head have continued to zoom into the 
inflationary heavens, the dollar has 
continued to fall in value, down to 
a 50% loss in purchasing power. 

This being the case, the present 
Dime is worth only the same as the 
1939 Nickel. 

Therefore, the suggestion of this 
publication that the music operators 
return to getting a nickel a play again 
brings home the fact that, if they do 
change over to dime play in 1955, what 
they actually will be getting is the 
same as the 5c per play they used to 
get 16 years ago, in 1939. 

But, even tho they will only be get- 
ting a nickel per play, in true mone- 
tary evaluation, by changing over to 
dime play in 1955, they will still be 
paying about 400% more for all the 
necessities required to do business 
than they did in 1939. 

It’s a tight squeeze from any point 
of consideration to come out with real 
profit in 1955. 

The fact remains that the operator 
must continue to get as many plays 
for his phonographs in 1955 as he ever 
did. He must get a dime per play to 
equal what he got 16 years ago, when 
he was charging 5c for the very same 
automatic musical entertainment. 

If the number of plays will con- 
tinue, or come close to what he ever 
enjoyed, then, at the 1955 Dime (only 
equal to the 1939 Nickel) he will have 
a chance to show some profit to meet 
his overhead expenses which run about 
400% over what they did in 1939. 

Just changing over to Dime play in 
1955 is not all the answer. The oper- 
ator must also correctly program his 
automatic phonographs. He must prac- 
tice the very highest economy and 
business efficiency if he intends to 
continue on profitably in the auto- 
matic music business during this 
forthcoming year. 

He must also, in addition to chang- 
ing over to 10c play, obtain front 
money guarantees wherever he pos- 
sibly can. 


With the value of the 1955 Dime 
only that of the 1939 Nickel he hasn’t 
very much to go on, as far as profit 
is concerned. 

The fact remains that in 1939 he 
paid a little under $300 for an auto- 
matic phonograph. And tho this 1939 
automatic phono wasn’t at all the fine 
quality musical instrument of 1955, 
he is now paying over $1,000 for an 
automatic phonograph. That’s a 300% 
increase in itself. 

For pickup trucks in 1939 he paid 
about $750. Today, in 1955, for these 
same type trucks he pays better than 
$2,500. That’s almost 400% increase. 

For mechanics and servicemen in 
1939 he paid about $35 per week. To- 
day, in 1955, he’s paying around $125 
per week minimum. That, too, is al- 
most 400% more. And where he paid 
$15 and $20 for girls for office work, 
he’s now paying $60 and more. That’s 
400% increase. 

He used to pay 14c for a needle, 
16c for a record. He pays far over 
400% more for these same items in 
1955. 

He also has to employ tax experts, 
Certified Public Accountants, and a 
myriad of other help he never before 
had to employ. These costs are ab- 
solutely far over what he ever endured 
for overhead expense. 

So down the entire line of neces- 
sities to do business, including his 
own salary, the music operator is now 
enduring about 400% more expenses 
on an overall average, than he ever 
was faced with in 1939. 

Changing over to Dime play in 1955 
means that he’s only getting the same 
Nickel that he used to get 16 years 
ago, in 1939 and, at the same time, he 
has to somehow compensate this lack 
of increase with the 400% more he 
is now paying for his overhead ex- 
pense to continue to remain in busi- 
ness. 

The answer, in addition to changing 
over to Dime play in 1955, is for the 
operator to practise the very greatest 
economy and the highest type busi- 
nes efficiency, if he wants to show a 
profit at the end of the year. 


MIAMI, FLA. — The music operators 
in this area are entitled to take a 
great big bow for their cooperation 
with the Key Biscayne Teenage Club, 
which resulted in curbing a youth 
problem in this area. 

A lengthy story, together with the 
picture shown herewith, appeared in 
the Sunday, November 28 issue of 
The Miami Herald. The headline, cov- 
ering five columns read “Teen-Age 
Trouble Turns Into a Tune!” The cap- 
tion underneath the picture read “Key 
Biscayners proudly show off their juke 
box.” 

“Some 100 boys and girls belonging 
to the Key Biscayne Teenage Club are 
enjoying fun-filled hours of supervised 
social activities every week, thanks to 
a small but determined group of 
mothers who nipped a potentially ex- 
plosive situation in the bud”, read the 
story. 

“Every Wednesday evening, the 
happy youngsters, their faith in 
grownups restored, gather at the Fel- 
lowship Hall in the inter-denomina- 
tion Community Church. There they 
sip soft drinks and dance to the lilting 
music of a juke box. 

“The drinks are donated, and the 
juke box is theirs to keep — a gift from 
the Amusement Machine Operators 
Association of Dade county. 

“A year ago it was different. The 
kids had no place to go. ... A wave 
of vandalism swept the island. Rightly 
or wrongly, the teenagers were 
blamed.” 


NEW YORK — Coinmen and their 
guests took over the entire Latin 
Quarter, this city, on Sunday night, 
December 19, participating in the 
Fifth Annual Dinner-Dance held by 
the Associated Amusement Machine 
Operators of New York, games oper- 
ators’ association. The attendance, 
which ran some 500, was the largest 
ever to attend an amusement machine 
association dinner. 

The Latin Quarter presents what is 
probably the most enjoyable over- 
all evening of entertainment, was thor- 
oughly enjoyed by all. 

Lou Rosenberg, president, assisted 
by the officers and board of director 
members, together with George Pon- 


The long story continues on, show- 
ing the problem and the manner in 
which the interested adults attacked 
it. 

“The kids wanted a juke box,” 
stated Mrs. Jo Barri, one of the adults, 
“and on several occasions had rented 
one for the evening. But it was a 
strain on their slim budget.” 

The Miami Herald relates “That’s 
when Mrs. Barri and her helpers paid 
a call on William Blatt, who besides 
being president of the Amusement 
Machine Operators Association, also 
operates a large route of phonographs. 

“The association, composed of the 
men who operate Dade county’s juke 
boxes, has given away scores of ob- 
solete machines in the past three years 
to needy organizations, youth groups, 
schools and Churches. 

“When Mrs. Barri told her story of 
the battle against juvenile delinquency 
on Key Biscayne, Blatt dusted off a 
phonograph that had been brought in- 
to the shop for service and presented 
it to her. Delivery, he explained, would 
take a couple of days. He was amazed 
when Mrs. Barri returned in a matter 
of minutes and hauled away the pre- 
cious cargo.” 

The teenage program clicked, and 
enthusiasm has grown. Now the spon- 
sors include the Key Biscayne Lions 
Club, Key Biscayne Women’s Club, 
St. Agnes Catholic Women, and St. 
Agnes Catholic Men. 


ser, business manager and his hard 
working and efficient secretary Claire 
Morano, had everything so perfectly 
arranged, they were able to relax and

NEW ENGLAND NIBBLES 


Happy New Year up and down coin row in Boston as distribs and ops look 
forward to a coin happy 1955. . . . Indications are that it will be the dawn of 
a new era in the coin machine business with music continuing climbing its dizzy 
spiral into locations never dreamed of before and games, guns and pins, kiddie 
rides and vending equipment reaching new heights in play. 

Trimount Automatic Sales Corp. celebrated the most successful year in its 
history with a big Christmas party for its employes at the Town and Country 
Room of the Somerset Hotel Dec. 18. More than 80 attended the festivities. 
On hand for the occasion and seated at the head table were reps from all the 
many manufacturers Trimount represents in New England. At the head table 
were president Dave Bond; general manager Irwin Margold; Mr. and Mrs. 
Harry Stern, Williams Mfg. Co.; Harry Kelly, Seeburg; Sam Lewis, Genco; 
Ed Levin, Chicago Coin; Ben Becker, United. A telegram was read from Sol 
Gottlieb, D. Gottlieb & Co., who was unable to attend. Brief speeches were 
made by the honored guests and by Dave Bond and Irwin Margold. Dan Brown, 
Trimount salesman, acted as master of ceremonies. Gifts were presented to 
Dave Bond and Irwin Margold, and Bond thanked the employes for a wonderful 
year and spoke of plans for the coming year. Christmas bonuses were handed 
out to all employes climaxing what Margold cited as “Trimount’s most suc- 
cessful year.” Trimount show rooms looked like a toy store as employes, their 
wives and children gathered for the firm’s biggest family Christmas Dec. 24. 
Santa Claus passed out the many gifts from three Christmas trees and Tri- 
mount’s big family said it was “the best Christmas, ever!” 

Barney and Louis Blatt entertained hundreds of ops and friends at their 
Atlas Distributors showrooms on Commonwealth Ave. during holiday week 
where the new brilliant color models of the new AMI phonograph were dis- 
played. A huge replica of the Model “F” bass horn, which equals nine 12-inch 
speakers, was suspended from the ceiling and on the floor were red, yellow, 
blue, ivory, coral and green units which had the ops practically going color 
blind. The new AMI music machine has really taken hold in the New England 
territory, Barney Blatt reported. He said ops reported that locations are ask- 
ing for colors to match their decor in machine installations. Op Paul La Rocca 
of Malden, Mass, was one of the first operators to put a new AMI color unit 
on location. He picked a coral colored box and reported plays increased in the 
location over the previous ordinary finished machine in the spot more than 30 
per cent. The new AMI machine is attention compelling and play compelling, 
locations have reported to operators, Barney Blatt said. . . . Freddie Munnings, 
formerly of the West Indies, now of Boston has had his new record on Caval- 
cade label, “Goombay,” backed by “My Heart,” given a good run by ops on 
their juke boxes in Boston. . . . Jan Strickland, Boston boy, has a new one on 
Label “X” called “Let’s” and “Come To Me, My Darling,” which local ops are 
going for. 

The new credit plan for ops anywhere in the U. S. announced by Si Redd, 
Redd Distributing Co., largest kiddie ride distributors, in The Cash Box drew 
immediate response, Si reported. A large number of ops wired in and many 
others wrote special delivery letters. Many deals are now cooking as a result, 
he said. Christmas bonuses were distributed at Redd’s by the boss himself to 
make it a gala holiday for all employees. Outlook for 1955 is tremendous, Si 
predicted. Big at Redd’s are Bally’s “Magic” and Bally’s “Mystic” bowlers. 

. . . Jerry Flatto, Boston Record Distributors, reported big Christmas biz with 
regular hit tunes selling way over the straight Christmas platters. . . . Ops 
going for new “Sportsman” Gun by Keeney being shown at Ed Ravreby’s 
Associated Amusements, Inc. Ed reports great enthusiasm and wide-spread 
New England acceptance of his new Keeney line. Biz at Ed’s World Fair on 
kiddie rides had the staff hopping during the holidays as retail outfits from 
small toy stores all the way up the line to giant department stores rushed to 
install kiddie rides, especially the reindeer types, for the Christmas season. 

. . . New Year’s greetings to all from Dave Bond and Irwin Margold at Tri- 
mount; Si Redd and Bob Jones at Redd Distributing; Dick Mitchell at Dick’s 
Record Co.; Ed Ravreby and Ruth Mae Ravreby at World Fair and Associated 
Amusements; Jerry Golumbo at Music & Television Corp.; Barney and Louis 
Blatt, Atlas Distributors; Jerry Flatto, Boston Record Distributors; Ben D. 
Palastrant, APCO rep. . .'. And to all the New England distributors and all the 
New England operators, we are grateful for this ‘best of all’ season because it 
gives us the opportunity to thank our friends for their wonderful cooperation 
throughout the year. . . . Thanks and Best Wishes for the coming year from 
Guy Livingston for The Cash Box. 


Mfrs. Expand Engineering, 
Experimental Facilities 


CHICAGO — With weather eyes out 
for the future of their plants, the 
majority of the leading manufacturers 
are expanding their engineering and 
experimental facilities. 

Some of the factories have already 
set up entirely separate buildings for 
this purpose. Others plan the same. 

All in all it is extremely interesting 
to note that the manufacturers realize 
the growing importance of experi- 
mental and engineering departments 
as the new products being presented 
become ever more intricate as to 
electro-mechanical engineering. 

At the same time many of the manu- 
facturers are seeking for entirely new 
developments which will assure them 
of long production runs. 

The general belief is that every fac- 
tory needs more staple products which 
will keep present production lines go- 


ing right ahead. 

The tendency toward larger and 
more expensive equipment is well de- 
fined at this time and, in general, 
seems to meet with the approval of 
the professional operators. 

It is also noteworthy that the 
majority of the distributors are in 
favor of new type products and are 
willing - to work along with the manu- 
facturers in an effort to ascertain re- 
quirements. 

Every factory here has its own key 
test centers for all of its new products. 
New equipment is being tested out in 
the field, all over the country, months 
in advance of actual production. 

Such advance products and the tests 
required in the field, have of them- 
selves, brought larger and ever larger 
engineering and experimental depart- 
ments into being.

Cook County “March Of 
Dimes” Chairman Lauds 


Industry’s 


CHICAGO — Music machine opera- 
tors can look for considerable assis- 
tance from the thousands of local 
chapters of the National Foundation 
For Infantile Paralysis in their pro- 
gram for “A Day of Dimes for the 
‘March of Dimes’ ” which is scheduled 
for one day during the week of Jan- 
uary 17 thru 21, 1955. 

William G. Caples, general chair- 
man of the Cook County Chapter, in 
a letter to Bill Gersh, publisher of 
The Cash Box, writes: 

“We have received a copy of your 
magazine, The Cash Box, which in- 


Program 


augurates the juke box industry’s 
1955, ‘A Day of Dimes’ for the ‘March 
of Dimes’. 

“May I express to you my own per- 
sonal, as well as the collective appre- 
ciation of our entire Executive Com- 
mittee of the Cook County Chapter, 
National Foundation for Infantile 
Paralysis for the very wonderful help 
you are giving us. Although research 
is winning against polio, victory is 
far from fact. In these critical times 
such outstanding help as manifested 
by your industry means even more 
to the March of Dimes.” 


Urge All Ops To “Write 
A Letter” 



JAMES T. MANGAN 


CHICAGO — One of the most famous 
and stimulating essays which appeared 
during World War II, and which was 
featured everywhere by the Post Of- 
fice Department, was James T. Man- 
gan’s: “Write A Letter”. 


Commenting on this the other day, 
Mangan stated: 

“Every operator should write a let- 
ter. To anyone. Anywhere. He should 
get into the habit of writing. 

“This,” he continued, “may prove 
to be a very, very important asset to 
him. And sooner than he expects. 

“The time has come”, Mangan says, 
“when writing a letter is more than 
just putting pen to paper. 

“The fact remains”, he explains, 
“that the nation’s operators are being 
constantly faced with many legislative 
problems. 

“The best answer to legislative prob- 
lems is for the operator to write a 
letter”, Mangan says, “to his Con- 
gressman, his Senator, his Council- 
man, his Alderman, or to anyone else 
who can help him. 

“If he will only get into the habit 
of writing a letter right now”, Mangan 
believes, “many future legislative 
headaches will be overcome. 

“This, then”, Mangan urges, “is 
the time for every operator, every- 
where, to write a letter. Even if it’s 
just to sret into the habit of writing 
letters. So that when the time comes 
he’ll find it easy to write a letter to 
whom it may concern to heln him for 
his own future, better welfare.”

Rowe and Canteen Combine 
Operating Firms 

Automatic Canteen to Purchase 52% 
of Rowe Common Stock 


NEW YORK- — It was disclosed late 
this week that The Automatic Canteen 
Company, general headquarters in 
Chicago, 111., and the Rowe Corpora- 
tion, this city, have merged their 
operating interests. 

Automatic Canteen plans on buying 
262,500 shares, or 52 per cent of the 
common stock of the Rowe Corpora- 
tion. The shares are those of Robert 
Z. Greene, president of Rowe, and his 
associates. 

Under the purchase agreement 
Greene will continue as president of 
Rowe. He is expected also to become 


a director and chairman of the execu- 
tive committee of Automatic Canteen. 

The locations will now be serviced 
by a staff of the combined firms. 

The manufacturing firms, Rowe 
Manufacturing Company, Inc. and 
Rowe Spacarb, Inc., are not effected 
by this merger, and will continue to 
function as separate entities. Rowe 
manufactures cigarette, candy, milk, 
ice cream, pastry and sandwich ven- 
dors. Rowe Spacarb manufactures cup 
beverage vendors.

Drive In ’55 to Rid Music Field 
Of Old Clunkers 


CHICAGO — From almost every im- 
portant area in the nation come re- 
ports that music distributors plan to 
drive harder in 1955 to rid their ter- 
ritories of warnout, old, scratched up, 
screechy ‘clunkers’. 

Surprising as it may seem, surveys 
indicate that there still are many 
thousands of pre-war automatic phono- 
graphs on locations thruout the nation. 

Even tho the new high fidelity 
phonos have started to cut into this 
mass of clunkers there is, as yet, a 
tremendous amount of work to be 
done to remove the prewar, screechy 
tone-dead, vermin-infested, wornout 
phonographs from blocking off loca- 
tions which could be developed into 
profitable spots. 

For a long time now this publica- 
tion has continued to point out that 
one of the reasons for bad publicity in 
the press has been these wornout 
clunkers. These have brought about 
misunderstanding with the general 
public and have, in some cases, even 


CHICAGO — After thirty years in 
the music business as a distributor 
and operator, Leo J. Dixon, Dixon Dis- 
tributors Corporation of Youngstown, 
Ohio, has been forced to retire due to 
ill health. For the past few years, Leo 
has been in ill health and is planning 
on taking a complete rest. 

His association with Dixon Dis- 
tributing has been taken over by Jack 
Mulligan, who has been active in the 


created the impression that musical 
reproduction, as far as automatic 
phonographs are concerned, is far 
from what the average music lover 
cares to listen to. 

All in the industry know that this 
is most completely erroneous. The new 
high fidelity automatic phonographs 
are masterpieces of fine musical re- 
production. But just one old prewar 
clunker in any territory in the nation 
reflects upon almost everyone of the 
modern, finer musical instruments. 

The phonograph manufacturers and 
their distributor organizations haye 
been working for some time now in 
an effort to rid the market of these 
old clunkers. 

This year of 1955 the belief is gen- 
eral that even greater drive will be 
put forth to get these machines off 
locations and have them replaced 
with new instruments in an effort to 
further the cause of fine automatic 
music everywhere in the nation. 


Dixon Distributing Corporation for 
the past two and a half year's. 

Leo first started in the business in 
Youngstown, Ohio and later went to 
Cleveland as an operator of phono- 
graphs and also a distributor of phono- 
graphs. In late years Leo’s activity 
has been in Youngstown, Ohio. 

His many friends wish him a speedy 
recovery that some day he may be able 
to become active in the music field. 


3 Color Folder Illus- 
trates Bally Bowlers 



HERB JONES 


CHICAGO — A new folder describ- 
ing “Magic-Bowler” and “Mystic- 
Bowler” has just been issued by Bally 
Manufacturing Company, this city. 

Prepared by H. B. Jones, Bally vice- 
president and advertising manager, 
the new folder is 11" x 17" printed 
both sides in 3 colors, red, yellow and 
black, and is folded to 5 Vk" x 8%" as 
a self-mailer. The inside spread of the 
new literature features a large illus- 
tration of “Magic Bowler” together 
with a full color view of the pin and 
playfield section which shows the new 
“Super-Strike” feature in detail in the 
exact colors of the actual game. One 
section of the folder contains a close- 
up photo of the underside of the 
hinged playfield which has been raised 
to show the out-in-the-open accessi- 
bility of the relay banks. This feature 
is captioned “New Easy-Lip Playfield, 
New Easy-At Relay-Banks.” Copies 
of the new literature are now in the 
hands of all Bally distributors. Copies 
may also be obtained without obliga- 
tion from Bally Manufacturing Com- 
pany, 2640 Belmont Avenue, Chicago 
18, Illinois.

Philly Ops Play Santa Claus 



PHILADELPHIA — Old Santa’s 
helpers have temporarily been replaced 
by burly, strapping men and his sleigh 
has been converted into “caissons” 
in an all-out effort to install as many 
juke boxes as possible in 32 of the 
105 Department of Recreation Centers 
and Playgrounds in the City of Phila- 
phia. 

Santa Claus in this case is the 
Amusement Machines Assn, of Phila- 
delphia, Inc. which will install, service 
and supply each juke box with the 
latest “pop” tunes of the day. And 
like most Christmas gifts — the music 
machines will remain at each center 
all-year-round. Good will is being 
added by the fact that the boys and 
girls can play records to their hearts’ 
content no cost to themselves. 

A big send-off was given this citv- 
wide movement in the form of a Juke 
Box party at the Greenwich Recrea- 
tion Center, 4th & Shunk Streets on \ 
Friday night, December 10th from 


8:00 to 10:00 P.M., held for the teen- 
age set by the Association. Special 
guests included the TV, radio and 
recording artist and star attraction 
at the Latin Casino, Julius La Rosa; 
Deputy Commissioner of Recreation, 
Robert W. Crawford; Samuel Stern, 
President of the Association; Joseph 
Silverman, business manager and 
Jerry Locks, of the Board of Directors. 

“Our objective,” stated Joe Silver- 
man, “is to keep the teen-agers busy 
in the evening and tire them out so 
that their only objective is getting 
home when the centers close. For the 
adults, we expect to install as many 
shuffle-board courts as the City cen- 
ters can accommodate.”

Happy New Year 

Ahead 


out Industry. Leaders 


Predict '55 Will be 


Even greater fear 


CHICAGO — “It sure looks like a 
real Happy New Year ahead,” is the 
general expression being heard thru- 
out the trade here as the New Year 
of 1955 comes into being. 

The general business boom that 
wound up 1954 is continuing right 
ahead. One manufacturer after an- 
other has reported: 

“Usually we expect to more or less 
close down for the holidays. This is 
one year when we have been just as 
busy during the holiday season as we 
have been at any time during the 
entire year.” 

Such statements are not at all un- 
usual. Not only for manufacturers, 
but also for distributors and jobbers 
thruout the entire area. 

Operators, too, are reporting better 
business. They believe that the gen- 
eral optimism which is prevailing 
among all the people, reflected in the 
stock market as well as in retail busi- 
ness, has helped everv one of the oper-

Continuing on ever higher upward 
during the winter months. Finishing 
with a tremendous business upsurge 
as 1954 drew to its end. 

The surge upward is continuing on 
ahead unabated here. This is reflected 
by the orders which are coming into 
all the leading factories. 

Sales managers are tremendously 
elated. They believe, as stated above, 
that a “real Happy New Year” is 
ahead for all in the field. 

In fact this optimism has caught

Dave Bond Predicts Good ’55 

Sees Good Music Biz, New Games innovations, 
New Gun ideas and Growing Consumer Accep- 
tance of Dime Play 



DAVE BOND 


BOSTON — In a special interview 
with The Cash Box here, Dave Bond, 
president of Trimount Automatic Sales 
Corporation, a veteran of 30 years in 
the business, forecast that 1955 wi 11 
be a good year for the entire coin 
operated field, but will be especially 
good for music, and will see new in- 
novations in games, new ideas in guns 
and a softening up on the part of the 
consumer towards 10c music machine 
play in New England. 

Backin' 5- up his prediction on music, 
Dave said that Trimount started oil in 


December, which is ordinarily a slow 
month, out of inventory and v ith a 
continuous background of unfilled or- 
ders heading into ’55. He pointed out, 
while on the music prediction, that the 
industry could use more hit tunes. 

The Seeburg - distributor, who is 
known as the dean of the automatic 
coin business in New England, sahl 
that experiments are now being made 
with 10c play on music in Hartford, 
Conn. Results are being closely watch- 
ed. Some 10c play has started in a 
few spots around Boston, but a big 
swing to it will take considerable 
time in his opinion. 

“There will not be too many new 
locations opening up in the New Eng- 
land territory,” he said, “but there 
will be a big push in replacement busi- 
ness.” 

He advised operators to take advan- 
tage of the new tax law which permits 
rapid depreciation and gives them an 
opportunity to write off new equip- 
ment. “The business-like ops will 
recognize this aid and set aside a cer- 
tain percentage of receipts to invest 
in new equipment.” 

Dave Bond entered the automatic 
music business back in 1924. He now 
has 30,000 square feet of one of the 
most efficiently and attractively laid 
out show rooms, and offices in the 
country. More than $50,000 has been 
spent in modernizing the plant and 
showrooms. 

New type bowlers were seen as a 
coming factor in 1955 and "ims wi’l 
be bigger than ever because of their 
exceptional takes. 



Christmas gaiety was all over coinrow this week, with both employers and 
employees exuding the holiday spirit. From the dearth of visiting coinmen on 
the row, it was evident that they were well prepared for the holidays. Some 
few stragglers were seen rushing in and out of wholesalers buying last 
minute needs. All look forward to good biz during the next few weeks.

HAPPY, HEALTHY, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO ALL. 


Trimount in 1954 marked 30 years 
in the coin machine industry. At one 
time or another, it has represented 
practically every major firm in the 
business. It now covers New England 
for Seeburg. Gottlieb, Williams, Chi- 
cago Coin, United, ABT, Genco. 

Reaffirming its policy for 1955, Tri- 
mount, through its president, Dave 
Bond, stands solidly behind the opera- 
tors and their judgment. 

Second in command to Dave Bond 
at Trimount is Irwin Margold, general 
manager, who counsels ops, buys, sells, 
handles accounts and supervises the 
music and amusement segments. Key 
men are Dominic Imbornone, ship- 
ping; Blanche Bowers, office force 


manager; Bob Borque, music service; 
Dan McQuarrie, pin service; Joe 
Smith, music parts; Ben Friedman, 
pin parts; Ralph English, credit man- 
ager. 

Dave Bond believes in community 
activities and participates actively in 
the philanthropic and cultural life of 
Boston. He advises ops to do the same 
as the best form of public relations 
for the industry. 

Time changes many things and the 
softening towards 10c music machine 
play, which has been greatly resisted 
for many years, is a new factor to be 
considered in 1955 in Yankeeland, the 
Trimount president feels.

The Cash Box 



The holiday Season is under way. Everywhere in our town guys and gals 
are calling out cheery “Season’s Greetings.” And business, for once, has taken 
second place to Jolly, red cheeked Santa. So much so that, wherever anyone 
visited this past week, and visitors were few and far between, there was merry 
cheer ready to greet one and all. Everyone seemed to be in the very happiest of 
happy moods for what all most definitely believe will be one of the Happiest 
of Happy New Years. . . . Over at Bally it seemed that gifts were the older 
of the day. Ray Moloney, Earl, Dan and Ray Moloney, Jr., Herb Jones, George 
Jenkins, Andy Renn, Jack Nelson, Bill O’Donnell, Art Garvey, Tom Callaghan, 
Bob Breither, Bud Breitenstein, Paul Eckstein, in fact, everyone all over the 
Bally organization, was in the very happiest of moods, thinking over a grand, 
grand year just past, and even a happier year to come. 

And at United, with the cheer just simply flowing, Lyn Durant acting like 
Santa Claus, with help from Ray Riehl, Herb Oettinger, Bill DeSelm and 
by remote control from Johnny Casola and Ben Becker, everyone was in the 
very happiest of happy moods ... all looking forward to greater things than 
ever before for ’55. . . . George Kozy, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Tratsch, Bill Patzer 
and all the others over at ABT in a jolly mood, with gladness in the air and 
a happy year ahead. . . . Dave Rockola, King Ray, Kurt Kluever, Wayne 
Bradfield and everyone at Rock-Ola went through business motions this past 
week, but, business wasn’t on their minds. Everyone here having come through 
a fine year was thinking about a greater year ahead and planning plans for 
the happy holiday season. . . . Don Moloney was a Santa in himself with 
Mac Brier and Tom Cath enjoying this past week’s action over at Donan 
Distribs. . . . Art Weinand and Ed Hall looked at the calendars over their 
respective desks, sort of sighed, and said, “So why can’t it be like this for- 
ever?” . . . Dave Gottlieb down in sunny Florida enjoying his ‘Flipper.’ Nate, 
Sol and Alvin Gottlieb along with Judd Weinberg and all the others at the 
Gottlieb factory sort of easing down for the Holiday Season. And all happy 
to do so, too. 

Harry and Lee Williams flying back to their very gorgeous California home 
while Sam Stern takes over at the Williams’ factory during this seasonal time 
when thoughts are for the sweeter spirits of the holiday season than for pro- 
duction lines. . . . Maurie and Eddie Ginsburg, along with Nate Feinstein, 
Harold Schwartz and the whole gang over at Atlas, just simply made merry 
with all their many customers who dropped in and “Merry Christmas and| 
Happy New Year” was in the air and on the beaming faces of the whole Atlas 
bunch. . . . Carl T. McKelvy of J. P. Seeburg Corp. continued to be busier than 
ever. But this time returning the many grand greetings he received from 
everywhere. . . . Charles (Little Jimmy) Johnson probably said it for all when 
he stated, “Just wish everyone everywhere the very best of everything.” . . . 
Stan Levin and Mickey Schaeffer, the two newest of the jobbers here, enjoy- 
ing their first business Holiday Season were busy as ever, but, most of the 
business they did was to meet and greet and be happy with customers and 
friends. 

Over at Empire it was more Merry Xmas and Happy New Year than any- 
thing else. Gil Kitt, Howie Freer and Vince Shay, along with all the Empire 
bunch, just simply turned this big distributing spot into a happy holiday 
affair. ... So it was with A1 and Joel Stern. . . . With Joe Schwartz. . . . With 
Charley Pieri and Clayt Nemeroff. . . . With Oscar Schultz. . . . With Sam 
Wolberg and Ed Levin over at Chicago Coin where action kept right on until 
the very last moment and Ed just staring in amazement at the orders rolling 
in even during the heart of the Holiday Season. . . . Sam Gensburg of ChiCoin 
down in Florida enjoying the sunshine along with his son, Avron Gensburg of 
Genco. Avron returning right after the 1st. . . . Mike Spagnola and Phil Weis- 
man, AMPs distribs here, simply opened their quarters to all for the Holiday, 
“and the cheer was really cheerful,” as Ed Rata jack would say. . . . Sam Lewis, 
and Ralph Sheffield were busy up to the last minute with their new gun, but, 
all of the time calling out to one and all who came into their quarters that 
this was the merriest of merry times for the Genco. 

Roy McGinnis in Florida. But John Conroe, Paul Huebsch, Walter Harri- 
son, and all the others at Keeney made the week a very pleasant and cheery 
one for everyone. . . . Pat Buckley and Gerry Haley sort of eased off this past 
week and thought all about the happy holidays instead of anything else. . . . 
And such swell people like Mike Dale, Ray Cunliffe, Phil Levin, Johnny and 
Andy Oomens, Bob Gnarro, Vic Comforte, Julius Mohill, Mary Gillette, Edith 
Davis, Dan Gaines, Bob Lindelof, Paul and Ellen Brown, Burt Bondioli, and 
so many, many others, much too numerous to mention, making this one of 
the grandest of all Holiday Seasons. . . . And the cards. Hundreds of ’em. 
Pouring in even as this is being written. From guys and gals everywhere 
throughout the world who have anything at all to do 'with the industry . . . most 
beautiful of beautiful cards ever seen . . . and almost everyone a masterpiece 
which makes choosing ‘ the card” this year a really tough job. But, as per 
usual, we stick our neck ’way out — about to there — choosing what we think 
was the most outstanding of all the Xmas Cards. 

This year it was between father and son — and we chose the card of Don 
Moloney. Because we personally think this is one of the very grandest and 
heartwarming we’ve ever received. It’s simply a homemade masterpiece. Don 
drawing the route to his new home. Showing where he and Nancy increased

CHICAGO — United Manufacturing Company’s field representatives, Johnny 
Casola and Ben Becker, get together in the factory’s showrooms to talk things 
over. 



Earl Barkowitz of the B & B Novelty Company of Superior, Wise, was seen 
in the Twin Cities picking up records and supplies for the route. Earl has been 
a compai'ative stranger to the local scenery since this trip was his first in many 
a moon. Heretofoi-e, his partner Leo was making the trips for the firm. . . . 
In town for the first time in several years was Carl Reese of Huron, S. D. 
Carl seems to have his fingers in a lot of pies and they look like some good 
ones. Seen comparing notes were Jack Harrison of Crosby, Minn, and Dick 
Henderson of Willmar, Minn. . . . Larry Jenkins of Bath, S. D. made a quick 
trip into the Twin Cities and then out again. Larry doesn’t let any grass 
grow under his feet. ... A two-some who came into town together were Hugh 
May of Eau Claire, Wise., and Glenn Bischell of Chippewa Falls, Wise. . . . 
Bill Hanf of Austin, Minn, was taking it a little easy on his visit to Minneapolis 
last week. . . . Recent visitors to the Twin Cities scene were Elgin McDaniel 
of Wadena, Minn.; Fred Kovanen of Moose Lake, Minn.; A. A. Cluseau of Grand 
Rapids, Minn.; Clayton Norberg of the C & N Sales Company of Mankato, 
Minn.; Frank Rummer of Spring Valley, Minn.; John Galep of Menomonie, 
W ise.; Chet Le Doux of Virginia, Minn.; and Bernard Misch of La Crosse, Wise. 
. . . Word has been received that Milo Whisman passed away Saturday night, 
December 18, in Los Angeles. Death vas due to a heart attack. Milo had 
operated coin machines in the Virginia area before selling out several years 
ago. Milo had operated a bowling alley for a couple of years before moving 
to California. Mrs. Milo Whisman is the only survivor. 



WEST COAST COINMEN PREDICT ROSY FUTURE FOR 1955 

This week, as we go into a new year, your roving Cash Box reporter held 
exclusive interviews with Los Angeles coinmen to gather information as to 
their views and predictions for the new year. Here are their forecasts for 1955: 

Walter J. Hemple, President California Music Merchants Association, Los 
Angeles Division: “In view of the strides made by the local association in the 
Los Angeles area this past year and observation of general business conditions, 
I feel it even conservative to say that the business of music operation has an 
excellent chance of bringing increased profits to operators in 1955. With the 
constant influx of people into Southern California the building boom has in no 
wise ceased. The growth of this area is phenomenal; thereby creating a wealth 
of new locations making it possible for any alert operator to expand his inter- 
ests. Manufacturers have given us the best equipment ever offered the industry 
so that the problem of giving the locations the kind of equipment to suit their 
needs has been solved. In view of these facts I can see only a very bright 
future.” 

V. VanNattan, Auto-Photo Co.: “With the economic picture on a much 
sounder basis than ever before I am very optimistic about 1955. The revolu- 
tionary new coin operated products that are now, either on the production lines, 
or already out on the market will open up new avenues of expansion that were 
never before possible. With thousands of new residents pouring into Southern 
California every month, whole new communities will spring up to fill their 
housing needs. With these new tracts and subdivisions will come new shopping 
centers, new locations and greater profits for the operator.” 

Bill Happel, Badger Sales Company “1955 will be a better year for the 
operators for these reasons: It seems to me that there has been a significant 
change in the operating business within recent months. I feel that the trend 
in Southern California is changing more and more to dime play. Most of the 
operators have stated that they would like to switch over but feel that com- 
petition doesn’t permit it. Regardless of the excuses more and more operators 
are gradually changing over to 10c play. These changes have been most no- 
ticeable within the past few months. All amusement games in this territory 
are now on dime play 100%, while music is only 25% on 10c play. When 75 
to 85 per cent of all the locations in the area go on dime play operators will be 
in a more lucrative financial condition. That is why I predict with operators 
now showing an interest in changing ever to 10c play business will be much 
better. Local associations have helped a great deal in banding together small 
and large operators for a common goal.” 

Sam Ricklin, California Music Company: “The phonograph business in the 
Southern California area has held up exceptionally well during 1954 and 1955 
should be a banner year. The operators, at long last, have good relations 
through their respective organizations and are beginning to cooperate with one 
another. Here’s wishing everyone a very prosperous 1955.” 

Wa yne Copeland, Sierra Distributors: “With the expanding economy of 
the West Coast steadily increasing I’m certain that 1955 will go far beyond 
our fondest expectations. Manufacturers offer operators of today a better 
product than ever before. New techniques are constantly being developed, 
such as high fidelity and modern cabinet designs, that will help the operator 
secure higher earnings. The amusement end of the business will contribute 
even more substantially to operator income during the new year. Altho in the 
Southern California area only a few months, I can see tremendous possibilities 
for expansion of all coin machine products on the West Coast. In the months 
ahead salesmanship and friendly, courteous service will play even greater 
roles.” 

Ben Chemers, bus. mgr. Calif. Music Merchants Ass’n., LA Division: “As 

the year draws to a close, it can be observed that the phonograph operators 
in the Los Angeles area made a good showing, profit-wise. The beautiful new 
phonographs available, equipped with the latest developments in Hi-Fidelity 
sound should insure even greater profits in 1955 and assure the location owner 
and his patrons of the very finest in entertainment values. As the move to 
ten cent play gains momentum throughout this area, and talk of a local Credit 
Bureau is heard on all sides, the need for greater Public Relations becomes 
more evident. The coming year should be the best in our history, from the 
standpoint of earnings and our increased stature in the world of business.” 

Charley Robinson, C. A. Robinson & Co.: “The vision and aggressiveness 
of all the coin machine manufacturers is going to make ’55 a highly profitable 
year. Not only are they constantly striving to bring out a machine that will 
win complete approval with operators, location owners and their customers, 
but they are also making every effort to help the operator conduct his business 
more efficiently. Most factories are now conducting service schools in every 
major city throughout the country. Also field engineers are visiting ops in 
every town and hamlet showing the newest servicing techniques and helping 
to solve their problems. This special service is something that the industry 
has needed for a long time.” 

Wm. H. Leuenhagen: “In the twenty years that I have been connected with 
the coin machine industry I have never seen as many revolutionary new and 
profitable types of equipment as are now on the market. I feel that the present 
products offered by the manufacturers are the best ever produced. These 
technical advances will open up new profit opportunities that will expand pres- 
ent operating to new vistas in the coming months.” 

A1 Cane, Cane Distributing Co.: “Our first year in this intriguing coin 
machine industry has been a very successful one for us. As we look ahead to 
’55 we see a big year for the industry here on the West Coast. The operator 
today has the finest coin operated equipment ever produced. With such a wide 
selection of modern, up-to-date phonos, games and guns to fill the needs of 
every location the operator has a greater chance to increase his profits during 
’55 than ever before.” 

Jean and Dolores Minthorne, Minthorne Music Co.: “During the past year, 
we have expanded our facilities to better serve the operator. In the coming 
year, we look forward to even better business due to the expanding populations 
of both L. A. and surrounding communities. In addition, 1954 saw some of 
the best equipment ever produced by the factories, and in our opinion these 
manufacturers will supply us and the operators with even more exciting, new 
money making machines.”

How To Use “The Cash Box Price Lists 

BLUE BOOK” 


[Also known as the “C, M. I. (Coin Machine Industry) 
and “The Confidential Price Lists”] 

FOREWORD: Many times, wide differences appear in the quotation of high and 
low prices of certain equipment. Like any true reporter “The Confidential Price 
Lists” can only feature the market prices as they are quoted. “The Confidential 
Price Lists” acts exactly the same as the market quotation board at the Stock 
Exchange — posting the prices as they are quoted for the past week, regardless of 
how much they may seem to be out of line. Some prices do not change for 
months. “The Confidential Price Lists,” rather than show no price, retain the 
last known quotations for such equipment so that the subscriber at least has the 
last known prices as a basis to work with. Prices may be very widely divergent. 
Someone on the West Coast may feel a certain machine worth $150.00 whereas 
someone on the East Coast may think it worth but $75.00. Of course, serial, 
appearance, demand, territory, quantity, and condition of equipment must be 
taken into consideration. (Some equipment offered by outstanding firms, hav- 
ing a reputation for shipping completely reconditioned machines, will be 
offered at higher prices than others, due to the added cost of reconditioning.) 
“The Confidential Price Lists” reports each quotation exactly as it is made and 
depends on the subscriber to make average price adjustments to fit the 
peculiarities of his territory. 

METHOD: “The Confidential Price Lists” should be read as follows: First 
price listed is lowest price quoted for the week; Second price listed is highest 
price quoted. 

FOREIGN BUYERS: To cover cost of packing, crating, shipping, etc., figure 
an additional $20 to $25 on Pin Games — and $25 to $30 on Phonographs.

REGARDING SELLING PRICES 

IMPORTANT ! 


Reports received indicate that, in some cases, purchasers become upset due 
to the fact that they cannot, many times, buy equipment listed in the lower 
price brackets. Sometimes sellers of machines listed at from $10.00 to $25.00 
ask from $50.00 up to $75.00 and even more for these very same machines. 
Purchasers of such equipment must realize that machines in the very low 
priced categories are worn to be priced at these low figures. To completely 
recondition such machines, the reconditioner must add onto his price the cost 
of transportation to obtain these machines, the labor, parts and supplies needed 
to recondition the machines, plus the cost of cartons, crates and labor for 
packing and shipping of the machines, in addition to a decent profit which 
will, in most cases, raise the price of a $10.00 to $20.00 machine to anywhere 
from $50.00 to $75.00 and up. In the case of arcade and kiddie ride machines 
these may even be higher due to the fact that many of the parts have to be 
made by hand or contracted for at some machinist shop, since manufacturers 
of many of the old arcade machines and kiddie rides are no longer in business 
and it is impossible to obtain parts for reconditioning. Purchasers of such 
equipment should take these facts into consideration and, at the same time, 
should also realize that many buyers today have their own repair and recon- 
ditioning departments as well as experienced mechanics, such buyers will 
purchase machines “as is”, at prices quoted by the trade at large, and recondi- 
tion the machines themselves to meet their own operating standards.
