MUSICIANS HOPE FOR MORE CULTURAL TOURS By MILDRED HALL WASHINGTON - American music and its finest performers could be given far more of a world audience through the international Cul- tural exchange program if the new administration and the new head of the State Department give their blessing to the project. The roundhouse swings of appropriations committees at tours of singers, - orchestras and jazz groups - especially the latter could be considerably tamed in 1961 if the White House is known to feel warmly toward Uncle Siam's musical emissaries. A goodly percentage of both the longhairs and the cats have'been rooting for Senator Fullbright. patron saint of performing arts on the Hill, to he the coun- Hy's neat Secretary of State. Although the so - called "President's International Program" received a new and vigorous co- ordinator in the 1959 appointment of Robert Thayer as Assistant Secretary of State for Cultural Affairs. in 1959, funds for the performer- exchange project have stayed at the same level of around $2.25 million per fiscal year. Out of a total of less than $49 million authorized over a five -year period, from 1955 to 1960, for the entire exchange program. including funds for international trade fair participation, less than 514 million went for cultural presenta- tions. Dedicated workers in the State Department, ANTA. the U. S. Information Agency, and other agencies stretched this to cover a total of 170 musical. dramatic and athletic tours, entering cur;,,t countries. 1(,..;r,11.11 EMI Claims Fourth Of World's Disk $$ Sales at Top Level British -Based Global Organization Says Trade Good on Most Fronts By DON WEDGE - LONDON EMI is now responsible for one -quarter of the world's production and sales of records, it was claimed here as a result of a special research study on a fully international basis. At the same lime, warning was given that there may be a recession following the current slackening of the pace of economic expansion, although this might lead to increased disk sales. Both claim and lorecast were given by EMI Chairman Sir Joseph Lockwood when he addressed C0111- pony stockholders at the annual general meeting here December 8. "All the indications are that the economic climate will get cloudier and more unsettled," he said. "Almost everywhere the pace of economic expansion is slackening and. in many parts of the world. it may give way soon to some measure of recession." Might Up Demand However. Sir Joseph added that this might lead to stimulated demand for disks. "When, in order to contain inflationary pressures. the demand for durable consumer goods is deliberately pulled dorm by government restrictions. we often find that the pattern of spending changes. "The demand for other products. like records, rises." During his review of the EMI group's diversified world -wide affairs, he noted the intensified competition in the disk industry. "As in the ' 30's " he said. "many NEWS OF THE WEEK FTC Emends Inquiry Into Alleged Disk Industry Price Fasoritism..

"EMI is now probably stronger than ever in the disk market, not only in Britain, but also in other parts of the world. In a special study which we have done in the production and sales of records in all the countries of the world, we have found that our share of total international demand is approximately 25 per cent." (For Sir Joseph's comments on the British scene see separate stories.) Following are extracts from Sir Joseph's remarks on other countries: U. S. and Canada -Sales of Capitol Records in the year had been handicapped by the work stoppage at Scranton, the corn - pom''s main factory. Turnover was down slightly on the year and profits were substantially lower, partly because of the stoppage, but also through continued pressure on costs and competition on manufacturers' margins. Australia -Sales of EMl's subsidiary were 38 per cent higher, largely accounted for by a 67 per cent increase in TV receiver sales, but disks were up, too, and in- creasingly profitable dite to efficiencies in manufacture and increased output. New Zealand -EN11 retained ils share of a reduced disk market. Germany -Disk market not so good as in the previous year, "mainly because of heavy consumer spending on TV sets." EMI in- creased LP sales by half, won back classical sales lead and had large increase in singles sales through German hits. France - Comparison difficult because of company reorganization during the year, but disk sales scented to be slightly up.

2 2 THE BILLBOARD TELEVISION MUSIC RADIO Communication. to 1S64 Broadway, New York 16, N. Y. DECEMBER Expect FTC to Widen Probe Of Disk Pricing Procedures SORD Co- Operating With Agency; Dealers' Reps, Examiners Meeting By REN GREVATT - NEW YORK The Federal Trade Commission, which has been for some weeks conducting an inquiry into alleged price discrimination in the record industry, is expected to broaden the scope of its inquiry to cover a number of markets in the United States, Cooperation in this matter is being extended by the Soi:iety of Record Dealers of America. The current investigation was triggered by a number of complaints received by the federal agency from record dealers. The inquiry is understood to he concerned with alleged discriminatory prices extended by manufacturers to one- stops, rack jobbers and socalled "most favored retailers." An- other pricing factor is related to clubs in rates offered direct to ultimate consumers. It is reported that representatives of record clubs headquartered here have been questioned by FTC investigators in detail regarding their price structures and that records of disk distributors have also been examined in depth. Another aspect of the investigation has to do with complaints by some dealers to the effect that co- operative Capitol Names Perry Mayer Ad Manager - HOLLYWOOD Perry Mayer last week was named Capitol's ad manager, replacing Steve Auld, who resigned to form his own ad agency. Mayer reports to Stan Gortinov, Capitol Records Distributing Corporation's merchandising veepee. Concurrent with Mayer's appointment, Capitol moved its album packaging operation: from artist -repertoire hack to the merchandising department. Album packaging, including the label's graphic arts, photo and editorial operations, were moved two years ago from merchandising to a. &r. when then Merchandising Vice -President Lloyd Dunn was named artist- repertoire vecpce. The department, still under Mary Schwartz' helm, now moves to Gor- tinov's merchandising wing. The switch -back goes into effect January I. It moves the operation from the Capitol Records, Inc. level where it had been under Dunn's wing, to the firm's distribution sub - sid. CRDC, where Gortinov now is functioning. advertising funds have hot been made available by some manufacturers unless the dealers in question agree to sell merchandise at list prices. Prime Complaint One of the prime complaints regarding one -stops has to do with the retail operations of a number of these outlets. This is one aspect of an investigation by the FTC just nosy getting under way in Philadelphia, The Pennsylvania Retail Record Dealers Association logged complaints there (see The Billboard, December 5 issue). This week, examiners met in Jersey City, N. J.. with SORD treasurer Lou Shapiro and the attorney for SORD. Jerry Kaplan, who flew in from Chicago for the meeting. Another meeting occurred here with Sy Bondy, president of the Associated Record Dealers of New York and New Jersey. Both Bondy and Shapiro are co- operating with the examiners and providing leads on other dealers in a position to discuss the local situation here. They also expect to make available records of dealings with other elements in the distribution picture. Shapiro, a Jersey City dealer, said, "I'1 not worried about myself. We're doing all right with our business. But I am concerned about the members of SORD from coast to coast. Many of these fellows get badly hurt by the evil practices in our business. This thing has got to come to a head and we of SORD want to cooperate in any way we can." Dues Payers Shapiro pointed out that of the..200 dealers associated with SORD, at least 1,600 are current dues payers. Dues are $25 a year.

An interesting aspect of the Fes- tival operation is that the firm operates its own artist management WB DISTRIBS IN ELITE CLUB - HOLLYWOOD Warner Bros. Records, noted for Its flare for class, is forming a highly exclusive club for the distributor elite, to be known as "The Bob Newhart Million Club." Membership is restricted ' to those distributors who sell their market's share of a million Ncwhart albums (both "Button -Dawn Mind" offerings). The club's Super Imperial Potentate Jim Conk - ling has accepted for membership Minneapolis' Bob Satemps and Boh Dahle (Cole Distributing), and Los Angeles' Al Latuska and George Morte (Sun State Distributing). Indicative of the club's reserved tone, its members receive neither lapel button nor,-preferential discount. Instead, they can enjoy man's most sought after blessing: the feeling that they "belong."

Kapp thus will be operating its own distribution out- lets in the No. 1 and No. 2 record sales centers.

Rebuilding increased Music City's area by 40 per cent, bringing it to square feet. Cost of the store's complete overhaul was estimated by Wallichs at a half -million dollars. In addition to the increase in space, the rebuilding gives the store a totally changed interior with up -dated sales facilities and an ultramodcrnistic exterior. As a re- salt of the expansion, Wallichs said, the store will be carrying even greater stock of albums and singles, will be able to display more product, and accommodate more customers with increase efficiency. Music City will now carry at all times a $ inventory in disks, Wallichs said. The Hollywood store is the largest of the three Wallichs Music City outlets here. and will serve as the chain's headquarters. Grand opening ceremonies also marked Music City's 30th anniversary.

Austin's appointment to the r key position marks the first tangible indication that Sinatra is building his label's executive force. Sinatra's diskery, as reported exelusively by The Billboard (see De- I cember 5 issue), will debut in mid - February with a two -album re- lease, consisting of packages by Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. The '' firm will sign other artists and will issue its wares in album form and singles. Austin had served Verve for the past several years as its comptroller. As the Sinatra label's administrative chief, Austin will be responsible for all contracts - signed by the firm, including artists' pacts, plus building the company's personnel, Austin will assume his new duties on the first of the year.

THE BILLBOARD MUSIC NEWS 3 Extend Probe of Disk Bootleg Ring to 'Entertainment Field' Hint Baring of 'Big Names' as Case Breaks on Two Fronts in N. Y. State BROOKY'LN -An investigation of disk bootlegging which resulted in the arrest of 16 men and a woman here this week "has now entered the entertainment field itself," according to assistant district attorney William Sonenshine, of the Rackets Bureau of the Kings County district attorney's office. A detective involved in the case added that "big names will he involved." Neither would elaborate. The case broke Thursday (8) when simultaneous raids were carried out here and in Utica, N. Y. The ring, believed to be Mafia - financed, planned to flood the pre - Christmas market with S LS million wdrth of bogus LP's by Frank Sinatra and Johnny Mathis. While the focal point of activities was here, the.pressing of the disks was being carried out at the plant of Mark Records in the up -State city of Utica.

In view of its unusually low -cost of manufacture and its good fidelity characteristics. it has caused a considerable stir among record men. In the words of one observer, "recording companies are at a crossroads as to how to treat Sonorama and its similar recorded sheets in the days to come." Retail prices of regular records are strictly maintained by the close co -operation of the Union of Record Dealers. Classical 12 -inch LP's sell for S6.39 stereo and $5.28 monaural, while I2 -inch monaural pops go for S4.16. Tradesters here well know that these prices are too high for ordinary white collar workers and students. For this reason, the reduction in Frank Sells 'Molly' Demo - NEW YORK Frank Music has sold its "Unsinkable Molly Brown' demo LP to RCA Victor's Camden label to be issued as a regular release. The record, which was supervised by Frank Music boss Stu Ostrow, features singers Sandy Stewart and Bernie Nee. plus the Elliott Lawrence chorus and ork. Lawrence handled the arrangements on the demo. The demo disks were made as professional records, in the hope that they would be sold to a label. Camden will release the album with the 10 tunes from the ''Molly Brown" show nett week. price was strongly recommended by a Nippon Victor Company director as early as last spring, but a big slash is difficult because of the relatively small quantity of each l.p pressed. A pop single 45 r.p.m. disk here sells for 83 cents. On the other hand, a disk pressed on one of the Sonorama type sonosheets can he produced for 8 to to cents, equivalent to the price of many popular magazines. Some here feel that if a disk hit could be released in the form of a sono- sheet, it could easily sell a million copies. As a Japanese disk man noted, "Nobody here cares to predict exactly what effect Sonorama, or its relatives, Sono -Sheets and Phono- Sheets, will have on recording field, but offsprings of process mushrooming." French Sonorama was introduced here early this year by Asahi Sonorama Company, a subsidiary of the largest in circulation. A Sonorama book with six recorded sheets sells for S1.

Billboard Study Shows Clear Disk Sales Discount Pattern Indicates Record Outlets Cut Price In Direct Ratio to Size of Market Ry TOI NOONAN and BOB ROLONTL NEW YORK -A study of discounting of records by retail stores throughout the country, conducted by The Billboard Record Market Research staff during the period March through August 1960, shows a clear pattern of discounting according to size of market. The survey reveals that discounting is prevalent in a third of all record stores in big city markets, or 34.4 per cent; it totals 14 per cent of medium market stores, but is a constant in only 6.9 per cent of all small market record stores. The same pattern (on a bigger scale) shows up with non -record stores (the chain and variety type stores selling many types of mer - chandize including records). Almost half, or 46 per cent of these stores in large markets constantly discount their records; 18 per cent do it in medium size markets, while 12.5 per cent of these chain or variety stores discount their records in small city markets. These figures refer to dealers who answered "yes" when asked whether they always sell one or more records of every label they carry at a discount. An entirely different type of pattern shows up with record dealers and variety or chain stores when questioned as to whether they provide a coupon or club plan for discounts after the purchase of a stipulated number of records. A total of 36.2 per cent of all record stores in large markets provide a club or coupon discount plan for their customers; 16 per cent of record stores in medium markets do (Continued on page 35) suit of an investigation started four ntdnths ago into the slaying of 17. year -old Vincent Graffeo, a Brooklyn teen hoodlum, who wan killed after a gangland -style ride.

An opinion seems to be held in some quarters that the introduction of cheap records has 'saved' the industry from decline and in some way 'proves' that prices must have been too high before," Sir Joseph said in his formal report to stockholders. This is not so. I cannot speak with certainty about the business as a whole. but our research into the release of records in Britain suggests that the low- priced long, play records do not account for a large proportion of total sales. They certainly do not in EMI sales. Sales at normal prices account for about 97 per cent of our total record turnover. "There are very large fixed elements in the costs of recording, which can only he recovered from large sales even at our present selling prices," he repeated. "The prices of our records are fixed in the light of our long experience based on a distributive organization which covers the world. It is possible to price oneself out of business with prices too lose as well as with prices too high." mand for disks (mainly for microgroove types here, with 78's increased!). Phil's unit sales fell, but value increased slightly, with largest share of disk market retained. - Chile Improving economic conditions marred by earthquakes but EMI increased share of disk market and turnover was top, despite a small reduction in numbers sold. In dealing with the three South American companies, Sir Joseph Lockwood observed that "it is difficult not to be able to report a higher turnover each year in many of the countries in this part of the world because a steep rise in prices is a fairly regular occurrence. This was so in the three countries where we have companies." COPENHAGEN NOTES BIG PUSH ON MUSIC ITEMS By TED WOLFRAM COPENHAGEN -At no previous time has there been such a huge outlay here on newspaper space by manufacturers, distributors and retailers of all the major products in the radio. TV, phono, and tape -recording fields as there has been during the first weekend of December. Full - page ads in color and feature articles on newly opened outlets for retail sales and demonstrations were numerous. A similar campaign in the record field appears to be ready to get going immediately. There are several reasons for this activity. For instance, the big German firms, such as the Bosch and the Siemen corporations, which until recently had been concentrating on such items as machinery and household appliances, are now also displaying and advertising their musical and electrical products. For the first time since the end of the war, it has now become possible for the big firms (largely mergers of small retail outlets) to move into midtown premises with large amount of floor and window display space. Over the weekend the newly merged Setandia group, with 17 retail outlets, completed. its moving into a big new midtown store. At the same time the Bagger group opened its sixth retail outlet in a new building opposite the heavy -traffic Norreport "S" subway station. These are the two largest stores in the above fields and have ample space for departments handling disks. The big Philips firm has opened a midtown demonstration center where all of its musical products are demonstrated, but not sold. The big Fona chain of retail outlets is currently plugging its Fona Record Club, with accent on classical platters. On Monday (5) it opened a new jazz record department in its main retail out - and this was tied in with a concert by Art Blakey and His Jazz Messengers, at the Odd Fellows Palace, Monday night, sponsored by Fooa and the Dansk Grammofonpladdcr (record) firm. Blakey autographed his recent platters, during the afternoon, in the new jazz department. - Global Sales Hit Top Year At $1.92 Billion LONDON -Electrical and Musical Industries had a record $1.92 billion turnover, an increase of S3.3 million, resulting in a net trading profit before taxes of $14.6 million m its last trading year, the chairman. Sir Joseph Lockwood. told stockholders at the annual general meeting here Thursday.(8). In the year ending June 30, total group sales had risen by 2 per cent and they brought a profit rise of 9 per cent. Total British disk sales had risen above the previous year's. Lockwood noted, with EMI basing increased its share of the market. (The period under review included a full year of Rank's separate U.K. operation, the Top Rank label not going to EMI until August.) Lockwood continued: "We increased our singles business very substantially during the year y largely because of our great success in selecting and promoting outstanding popular artists." Most of this had been achieved with 45 r.p.m. singles and he pointed out that total British production of 78's has fallen from 43 7 million in 1957-`58 to a mere 5.1 ntilion in '60. "The change -over to stereophonic records is taking place slowly, but these records, especially among the long -play types, are becoming firmly established." he went on. "Nearly one half of the sales of Beethoven's Sixth Symphony, conducted by Klemperer, consisted of the stereo version and there have been similar high proportions with many other LP records. Undoubtedly, it is with this kind of music that stereophonic reproduction is most valuable and we are glad to see that the public is beginning to appreciate this." In another reference to EMI's classical output, Sir Joseph instanced the "outstanding" success of Sir Thomas Beecham's records of the Haydn Saloman Symphonies and the Delius Florida Suite. About half of the group's total turnover was represented by records, which was more than before the war. The remainder was accounted for by sales of electronic capital goods, radio and TV, domestic electrical appliances, magnetic tape and some office equipment. The balance of products within the group had received considerable attention during the year and EMI had acquired two firms in the domestic electrical and elec- tronics fields. Purchase of such businesses could, Sir Joseph said. bring quick results and benefits for both. "It was the manner in which we were able to develop so quickly our interest in the disk business in the U. S. and Canada," be said. "The acquisition of Capitol Records gave EMI access to a repertoire rich with talent and provided Capitol, through our catalogs and world -wide connections, with opportunities for rapid expansion." A research and development group had been established to continue the study of studio techniques for stereo recording, the process of lacquer cutting, and factory process for producing records. Work was also in progress on recording and reproduction on magnetic tape with particular reference to slow speed operation. There had been further advances on the EMI system of stereo broad - castin 8. NEW YORK -The Hot 100 chart added 17 new aides this week. They are: 40.

The letter, which seas signed by AGAC Present Burton Lane, contains a ballot on which members are asked to vote yes or no to continuing and explanding the plan by making all members participate. It also contains authorizations for AGAC's 5 per cent fee for the collection plan. The letter has already cued a lot of excitement among many top writer- members of AGAC. writers who have no objection to the royalty collection plan if it is voluntary, but object to its covering all members whether they want it or not. In fact, the dissatisfaction on this level has gone so far that a number of top writers said last week that if the new plan passes they will have to consider resigning from the Guild. The reason for the dislike of a collection plan which all members must join is not hard to find. Under the royalty collection plan AGAC collects 5 per cent of all moneys a writer -member receives from a publisher - whether collected by AGAC: or not -up to 51,000. In D. DREYER DID 'LONESOME' BIT NEW YORK -After much diligent footwork on the part of The Billboard. it was discovered this week that the writer of the recitation on the Eh is Presley record of "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" was written by veteran music man and writer Dave Dreyer. Dreyer, the composer of "Cecilia." "I'm Following You." "Me and My Shadow," and other hits, penned the recitation while working for Bourne Music in the 1920's. At that time recitations were used by singers in theaters and music halls to dramatize songs before a live audience. The recitations were often printed on the back of sheet music copies. other words, the 5 per cent fee is based only on the first a writer may earn from publishers. Up to now only the writers who asked for this service have been charged the 5 per cent fee. Writers who did not want to participate did not have to do so and could still be AGAC members. But, it is understood, the expenses entailed in administering the plan. sending accountants to publishers' offices to see if they paid writers the correct royalties. etc., have cost more than all the 5 per cents collected to date will pay for. Thus, claim a number of writers, the need for a bigger fund. But a number of top writers claim that they do not need AGAC to collect from their publishers for them, They say that they are satisfied with their publisher income and that if they have to enroll in the royalty collection plan they will be giving to AGAC and receiving nothing in return. They do not deny the need of AGAC's collection plan for other writers, but deny its need for themselves. AGAC claims in its letter that the collection plan has brought hundreds of thousands of dollars to writers who would not have otherwise received the money. AGAC further states that selfish publishers will seek to drive a wedge between those who are and those who are not part of the plan, and thus all members should be covered by it. AGAC is due to announce the results of the balloting shortly. Westinghouse Buys KLAC NEW YORK - Westinghouse Broadcasting Company is buying station KLAC.

Latest example was the Decca issue last weekend of "What's It All About?" a comedy number performed by two deejays, Pete Murray and Brian Matthew. It was produced by Les Conn, a former Decca a. &r. man. who now heads the Melcher operation in Britain. Another Conn production, 'Martin Slavin's The Charleston's Gonna Rock the Hop Tonight," was issued by Oriole last' weekend. Last month Pye released "Ten Swingin' Bottles," by a young British rock artist, Peter Chester, which has also been produced by Conn for the Melcher organization.

A film title tune, "Faces in the Dark," by Janine, who plays an electronic instrument called a nsartenot, was made by Filmusic at first for re- lease on Top Rank here. It was issued at the time of the hand - over to EMI and the disk was taken hack by the publisher and reissued through Oriole. It has now been issued in several overseas countries and done well -on the Top Rank label -in South America, Another Filmusic production, "Angel," sung by the Day Brothers, has been Issued by Oriole. Two new sides, "My Mommy Told Me," sung by the Shane Sisters, and "Why Did You Leave Me?" by Ray Merrell, were issued as an experiment on the newly launched Ember label. The latter tune has been taken by Rank Records of America. Shampan feels that a publisher is justified in going to the expense of producing a disk himself if he has complete faith in a number. "The last thing we intend is to become a producing company," he said, "but if a number has been turned down by a.&r. men it doesn't have to be given up. Often it could be that he has no contract artist available at the right time, whereas the publisher can draw on unattached talent."

Merc Names Leslie Distrib - CHICAGO Mercury Records announced its second distributor change in two weeks with the appointment of Leslie Distributors New England Inc., East Hartford, Conn to replace Trinity Record Distributors Corporation, Hartford. Last week, Metro Distributing Company, headed by Carl Glaser, returned to the Mercury fold as its Buffalo distributor, after an absence of some nine months, during which time Mercury serviced the area with a factory sales representative. Both moves are attributed to a hypoed sales effort by the parent label. Irwin H. Steinberg, executive vice -president of the diskery. said the change is "in keeping with Mercury's desire to increase exclusive sales activity in connection with our product. We are seeking more and more to influence existing distribution, or create new distribution. with separate sales forces which will give exclusive representation to the Mercury label." Steinberg, however, stressed that there was no general revamping of Mercury's distribution pattern in the offing and that both the Hart - ford and Buffalo moves were dictated by individual circumstances.

Continued from page 1 Heath Bowman, chief of the Bu -' reau of International Cultural Exchange, who must administer the program, points out that the exchange now reaches one -third more of the world's population than when it originated in 1955, but the budget has been at a standstill. Another administrator hoped that new leadership from a Democratic President would not only induce appropriations committees to step up the funds but also to cut down on the abuse handed to the hard -pressed workers and to the performers themselves. In the eighth semi -annual report on the exchange program, released last week by the U. S. Information Agency, which handles promotion and publicity for the performers circling the globe, it was pointed out that during the first six months of 1960 alone, 55 countries were toured by S5 attractions, including one full -scale musical show, "My Fair Lady." Reactions front the audiences at various points on this tense planet were documented front newspapers of the nationals. In Moscow, the press reported an nudiencc wild for "My Fair Lady." In the Far East, Japanese newspapers said the Boston Symphony "melted the hearts and souls of the audience." In Manila they loved the sway the "gay. vigorous" American dance music found expression in Rod Alexander's "Dance Jubilee." Among others, an American folk music troupe went through India, the Herbie Mann jazz band toured Africa. rho Howard University choir covered Latin America, and the Eastman String Quartet toured from Greece to Morocco. Each group, carrying a wholly different type of American musical performance to alien surroundings, "made many, many friends" and "entranced' their audiences with their musical ability and personal warmth, the press reported. Louis Satchmo Armstrong, on a commercial tour, made it a triumphal one into further reaches of Africa with State Department funds from Kenya to the Ivory Coati While all other news from Africa was grim and bloody. everything came up roses for Satchmo and his indigenous American music: "They dig me over there." said Satch. What's Ahead? In 1961 the Dave Brubeck Quartet is scheduled for a 12 -week tour of Latin America, beginning in March. By way of contrast, the Milliard String Quartet will our the Far East for eight weeks in April and May.

The elements in a crystal cartridge consist of two crystals. usually of Rochelle salts, which produce an electric current between them when one moves in response to prods by the needle assembly.

Accessories Displayed One of the State's leading dealers. Mr. Lawrence has given accessories plenty of attention, display- ing them at five points Ihru the store. particularly at the cash register. where every customer, buying arything from a record In an elaborate built -in stereo installation must stop at least briefly. Big mass displays of phonograph needles, brushes, anti -static spray and cloth, record racks, raw tape. pre -recorded tapes, cleaning compounds, account for many sales thru the suggestion route, These mass displays, however, are actually only a small part of 'the accessories merchandising etfort at the Birmingham store. The real secret of success in this field is a newsletter, which Mr. Lawmenu writes himself. mimeographs, and sends out to more than of his customers in the Binning- ham area. His newsletter covers every aspect of getting the best out of a phonograph. a tape recorder. a television set, etc., with tips on maintenance, upkeep. and repair, as well as a complete page on accessories, and their usefulness. Since he began the newsletter three years ago. Mr. I..awrence has become something of a recognized expert in all aspects of sound reproduction, and most of his customers who receive the six to eight -page newsletter carefully file it away for reference. In typical accessories discussion, Mr. Lawrence takes up one item at a time, such as phonograph needles in one issue. He describes the difference between steel, sapphire and diamond needles, compares the results to be achieved by each with the original cost, gives tips on needle care and replacement. A following issue may cover the use of anti- static materials, including cloths, brushes, and spray liquid, with his own opinions and experiments with each reflected in the copy.

Acces- sories do not enter the customer's mind when he first buys a new phonograph. a new recorder. and usually he has been hard put to it to get together the cash for the purchase. This makes it difficult to sell accessories along with the original equipment itself. and so, we restrain ourselves to a simple discussion of the accessories. showing the new phonograph purchaser a sample of each.

Uppermost on the agenda was the authorization of a program to combat the electronic imports now flooding the United States. By a unanimous vote, the EIA board of directors authorized the organization's Electronic Imports Committee to initiate an ostensive campaign to inform the public and members of Congress to the dangers of uncontrolled foreign competition. Other highlights included were the authorization of n committee to represent the electronics industry in international standardization activities and the support of legislative or executive action which would consolidate frequency allo- cation under a single federal authority. Authorization of a subcommittee to outline an advertising code of ethics for the radio -TV and phonograph industry was another move undertaken by the EM. In addition, a preliminary report on electronic trade shows was re- vealed. Surrey indicated a heavy financial cost to component manufacturers resulting from the growing number of national. regional. and local hi -fi shows. One new EIA director was also elected, Joseph G. Gillies. who is vice- president of operations at Philco, plus a number of new members for the esecutive commit- Component Ad Pulls Ferns NEW YORK -The pledge [hat a number of component manufacturers took a few months ago, whereby they vowed to appeal to women as well as men. appears to he coming true. The Harmon Kardon Company of Plainview, Ness York. has becn running a series of ads in top Sunday supplements, showing a picture of a high- fashion model plaintively asking (against a background of high fidelity components) "Why doesn't someone talk to me about component high fidelity?' Surveys have noted that most readers and most purchasers of high fidelity components are men. Yet since the components are usually placed somewhere in the house. women have a lot to say about where they are placed. and how they look, how they fit into the decor. Harmon- Kardon's ad appeals to the distaff side not only with the attractive model, but also in the copy. Part of the copy reads: "A custom' component such as the classic Harmon- Kardon Festival II adds distinction and beauty to the home. Note how it adapts to any decorative scheme -period or modern: how perfectly it tits on a shelf, a bench. a table. a sideboard. If music is s part of your way of life, why not dramatize it in the same way that the art lover. the antique collector or any serious hobbyist displays the objects of his pride and pleasure." These ads have just started to rua so it is still too early to tell how they are doing with the femme trade. But it is probable that more and more component ntanufacluren will join the appeal -to -women kick, until women are willing to accept components with as little trepidation as they do a TV set or a package phonograph.

POP SONGS 35 CONCERT REVIEW Harry Sings Good, Clowns Bad When Harty Belafonte sing,, he is undoubtedly one of the oinlera in the world today. But when he clowns, top voal he ehouldnl Playing to a week of turn -away houses at Chicago's Opera Home (541). Belafonte needed neither the fantastic lighting effects nor tbs sometimes overpowering musical accompaniment to rose the audience with such standards as "Have Nageela," "Jobs Henry." "Man Smart" -which he calla! the King James version. due to the many younger folks present. and When the with the Dixieland version preceded by Sai1Na Cis Marching In, BB imitation done in the style of an old English madrigal. But after a highly effective rendition of "Ya Reba," toward the end of the program, he resorted to unnecessary clowning with the Vocal Four -who provided some fine backing for several numbers. and then went on to 20 minutes of "Matilda' -which has son of worn itself out since making such a hit at Carnegie Hull. Miriam Makeba, the South African thrush who has had no stronger booster than Belafonte since her arrival here lust November. brought a beautiful and exciting voice to the program. Scoring in "The Click Song." which she ducts with Belafonte in his IBtest Victor album, " Belafonte Returns to Carnegie Hall," she also got across to an appreciative audience with an Indonesian lullaby and a Zulu folk song, Most effective musical hacking was provided by two guitarist*, a bass and s large set of bongos. But the orchestra seemed largely estraneous and the lighting was almost too effective -to the point where you started looking for the nest effect. rather than the song. Belafonte has few peers in the entertainment field but this reviewer for one missed a hit more of the old Belafonte and his rendition of "Scarlet Ribbons.' among many others the audience was evidently eager to hear.

However. 20.R per cent of chain stores or variety stores in small markets have a coupon plan. There is a small percentage of stores, both record stores and chain and variety stores, which discounts some labels, hut sell others at full IIji price.

Like Luxcrntrourg, the new station will reach areas other than that for which it is primarily intended. Programs will consist mainly of pop music and it may become a powerful new promotion aid for disks. not only in Britain but on the Continent, too. Already at least two people connected with British record firms - one from Philips and the other from Decca -have identified themselves with the project. Some publishers have been quietly helping it along. The new station is using the call letters CNBC, but this does not rip2ify any association with the D. S. radio -TV network. For 12 hours a day the transmitter is used for airings to Holland as Radio Veronica. :The English service will operate froff 6 a.m. to noon and midnight to 3 am. The whole of Britain will not be covered, but the area will In- clude London and most of the wealthy eastern and southeastern counties. Morning programs will clash with BBC domestic radio services, but they are light on disk town at the material time.

And the patterns here are very similar for both record stores and chain and variety stores. A to- 0 tal of 26.3 per cent of all record stores have occasional sales in large markets. 47 per cent do it in medium markets, and more than half, or 55.1 per cent, do it in small markets. A total of 23 per cent of chain and variety stores run sales in large markets. 52 per cent do it in medium markets, and 56.2 per cent do it in small markets.. Another look at these figures indicates that the occasional sale is the way the medium and small market stores answer the discount practices of big city stores. And there are still stores who do not discount at all. or hardly at all. according to The Billboard Record Market Research survey. Most of these atores are located in the medium and smaller markets. Of the big city storm only 9.8 per cent of the record stores said that they almost always sell records at full list price. However, 32 per cent of medium market record shops and 26.8 per cent of small market shops said they hardly ever i TD 18 discount. And only 15.9 per cent of big city market chain and variety stores said they do not discount. but 28 per cent of the medium market stores of this type said they do not discount, and 20.8 per cent of these stores in small markets said that they. too, do not 22 discount. The fact that only about 9.8 per cent of the record stores and only 15.9 of the chain stores and variety stores in large markets said that they hardly ever discount means that almost 90 per cent of all large market stores that carry O D O 21 records discount in one way or 25 another Some of these stores do it all the time. others on some lines and not others, others through sales, and others Through club or coupon plans. In the medium mar -, Acts almost 70 per cent of all stores 27 that carry records discount by one method or another, occasionally or constantly. and in the small mar-1 28 ket almost 75 per cent of all atores are on some sort of a discount plan. This all adds up to mean that it is a somewhat rare record shop or chair. and variety shop that sells its records at list price. It is also clear that discounting. straight or in doses. has become an accepted practico for the majority of record shops In the United States I et THE NATION'S TOP TUNES ROLL OF H115 FOR WEEK ENDING DECEMBER The Honor Roll of Hits comprises the nation's top tunes according to record sales and disk jockey performances as determined by The Billboard's weekly nationwide surveys.

The arrests were made by Detectives Michael Bruscella and Anton Komarek, both of the River - front Squad. The thefts had apparently been going on for some time. With the co- operation of the Burns guard. packages of albums were allegedly carried out by the employees to the nearby corner of 25th Street and 10th Avenue. At that point they were loaded into a station wagon and taken one block north to 26th Street where they were dropped off at a service station there. At this second renezvou- point, another vehicle would arrive and pick up the merchandise for distribution to ultimate retail outlets. The men were taken in the act of transferring the merchandise from one car to the other. Late in the week, information was being presented to a grand jury here. Spokesmen said indictments could be expected. The London thefts case was only one incident in a week sharply punctuated by police action on the record scene in this area.

Later the inquiry is expected to move into Massachusetts, Up -State New York, Michigan and the Chicago arca. Co- operation is expected in all these areas from members of SORD and SORDaffiliated local dealer associations. A spokesman for the FTC in Washington confirmed that the investigation was going on but declined detailed comment on the scope or aims of the inquiry, other than that it deals with complaints of price discrimination violations of section two of the Robinson -Patman Amendment to the Clayton Anti -Trust Act. The spokesman pointed out that any firms examined for possible price discrimination violations would have avail- able a number of defenses and should not be pre -judged. An important factor m any such matter is that of quantity of purchase as a determinant in price discounting procedures, he indicated. MEN WHO READ BUSINESSPAPERS MEAN BUSINESS Cartridge Tips Prod Dealers Continued from page 20 provement in cartridges from one year to another may hase rendered obsolete cartridges in sets you sold.several years ago. The replacement market is a par - ticularly good one at the present time because of the current interest in stereo. Altho a monaural cartridge will produce acceptable sound from a stereo record. it tends to destroy the stereophonic tracings after even one playing. On Conversions If the customer's player is worth converting to stereo you may be able to follow up that sale with a complete stereo conversion. In planning cartridge replacement, a general rule is: don't try to sell up. If the set contains a ceramic cartridge, replace it with a cer antic -if possible, with one made by the sane manufacturer. Afos crystals are interchangeable, how ever -one make will generally do as well as another. Only with magnetics is it possible or advisable to replace a lower- priced cartridge with a better one. However, before installing a magnetic cartridge, check to make sure the amplifier has enough power to operate prop erly with it (a monaural amplifier should have an output of 10 watt for any magnetic cartridge; some stereo magnetics require even more power because of their lower out- put per channel). On the other hand, it's generally not a good idea to substitute a crystal car tridge for a magnetic. In appraising the value al cartridge, there are several ques lions a customer may ask. Whin types of record will it play? What is the frequency response? How easy it it to replace a needle? And at what weight will it track? Most of today's monaural cartridges play 45 r.p.m. and LP mono disks only. No single cartridge plays both stereo disks and 78's Frequency response is usually supplied by the manufacturer. Generally speaking, it is a meaningless figure unless you know what the distortion figure is over the range the manufacturer claims. Most cartridges cover the ,000 cps range, but the clarity with which they do it generally increases as price increases. Good magnetic cartridges and the better ceramics can boast a range of cps with distortion held to a reasonable figure. Needle replacement differs from cartridge-to cartridge, as dealers who stock many of the more than 20(1 types now on the market are well aware. Some involve replacement of cartridge as well as needle. For many others, the customer makes the needle replacement himself. Sonic of the high -fidelity cartridges require the dealer to make needle replacement, while still othc cartridges, such as some Fairchild and Pickering models stylus replacement. Find out about needle - replacement in the nets you sell which can he done by the customer himself, and which you'll have to do for hips. Make sure when the time comes for replace- ment- usually a month later for a sapphire tip, a year later for a diamond -that you have the needle he needs. Compliance has become tremendously important with the inmust be sent to the factory for traduction of stereo cartridges. It represents the degree of flexibility the needle has in tracing a stereo groove -not only laterally but also vertically. Greater compliance generally is to he had in the higher - priced cartridges, with magnetics generally being superior to crystals. The more compliant a stereo cartridge, the less weight is required to keep it in the groove. Both of these figures are supplied by cartridge manufacturers, who try to keep the weight factor down to a pressure of three or four grams for a stereo cartridge.

Vandeburg Describes N. Y. Fair Exhibits CHICAGO- Methods to he cm. ploycd in exhibits at the upcoming New York World's Fair were described by Clyde Vandeburg at the luncheon of the International Association of Fairs and Exhibitions here Saturday (3). Over 200 fair men turned out for the event which was held in the Morrison Hotel. Vtmdeburg, who with Art Link - letter, heads up the firm of VandeburgLinklettcr Associates, described some of the operations of V -E -K Associates, another firm that he heads that will provide serwicex for exhibitors at the Gotham exposition. With industrial exhibit space limited to square feet for each exhibitor and only 60 per cent of the area allowed for structures, small business appears to be left out in the cold. This is where V -E -K contes into the picture, he pointed out. The firm is organising co-opera. tive eshihity, and 25 major groups have already shown interest in par - ticipating. A unique method of getting citi- (ors to see the exhibits was pointed out by Vandeburg. On vertical exhibits. the patrons will be transported to the top by means of traveling hells. They will be circled down past all the components in the display to a special events section or theater where the main show will be presented. A% example of the type of planning doing into the phibits was given. One structure planned for a group of light and power companies will be a tower of light -an outside wall of 60 hig searchlights. 10 feet in diameter. which will provide a spectrum of color through which visitors will pats.' s Vandeburg warned the 1AFE members to strive for greater per- manence in their operations. especially in those areas that ate changing from agricultural to more urban activities. Linkletter, speaking in a similar vein, noted that fairs arc notoriously one of the last to get on the bandwagon of changing conditions.

Virtually all other providers of rides and other devices reported satisfaction.. Occupying II booth spaces and thus displaying more equipment than any of the exhibitors, it cited a strong list of orders.

This indoor date will close Popeye, Stooges, Felix Borrowed As Salesmen for Pleasure Island BOSTON -Pleasure Island, after staggering to failure in 1959, showed an amazing rally last season and emerged with a bright future. Part of the success story is due to a fomare disk jockey, Norman Prescott. At the beginning of the season Prescott was drafted as vice -presi- dent in charge of exploitation at Pleasure island. Prescott set up a show business approach, mapping out a campaign for the 70 -acre experiment in the new ts pe of funspot with emphasis on show business, showmanship and TV personalities. "We didn't have a Mickey Mouse. a Davy Crockett or a Donald Duck, such as Disneyland has. to sell Pleasure Island," he said. "We created our own Disneyland type of selling force in the pernsanent characters and voices of the biggest independent names in televninn. We wrote special commercial± which were recorded by Pop. eye. Bow the Clown. Felix the Cat and the Three Stooges. They became our radio, TV and newspaper salesmen." Preston said that after he toured similar -type parks in the U. S., Palisades, Disneyland, Magic Mountain and Pacific Ocean Park. he discovered that there are essen- tially two kinds of parks. One is the.kiddieland with a less ideas on history. The other extreme is the multi -million- dollar park investment, which in most cases has been built at such tremendous expense that it is impossible to make a net, he said. Prescott, who has left for Brussels to supervise a new centure, production of a full -length color Cinemascope animated `film plus 'IV pilot. to be released in the U. S. for Easter dates. says the identity of the TV cartoon characters created the image of fun for the whole family with prestige names explaining the entire Pleas, are Island story. Prescott set up the one -price policy. The price, 52 for adults and S1.50 for children, was right, and the spot immediately jumped ahead of the previous year in gate receipts. All ads for the fusspot were designed showboat style in the tradition of the Palace Theater. TV commercials were made in animated cartoon style, and Al Stakt, Animated TV Productions, New York. produced six one- minute. 30- second and 10- second layouts for Boston TV stations. In 1959 the park spent $262; 000 in adscrtising and promotion, with a policy of admission price and payment for all rides inside. This season, under the new management, a budget of only $50,000 was set, and in the first eight weeks of operation the park was 37 per cent ahead of the previous year in attendance. The 1959 attendance totaled This year the park chalked tip 170,000 in the first eight weeks and ended up topping last year's operation by 400 per cent. On August 5 -a Thursday -the park hit the record for a weekday with more than 7,000 as against the best a year ago of 1,200. When three businessmen took over the tangled affairs of Pleasure Island, they gave Prescott a free hand to put his showmanship program into effect. Robert C. Linnet], real estate developer, Walter A. Smith, oil company executive, and Herbert C. Lee, shoe executive, took over the park's $525,000 first mortgage from the Merchants National Bank and paid 20 cents on the dollar on some $300,000 owed the parka creditors. The group is also paying an unspecified amount on the park's second mortgage of S600,000, for - (Continued on page 52) April 9.

The action was prompted by the city's hiring members of an operating engineers' union to handle work at an ice rink, while the Building Trade Council thinks their Steamfitters union should have it. The electricians union is expected to claim jurisdiction that might otherwise go to the stagehands and electrician group, for example. A similar sort of disagreement turned up at Chicago recently when both building and operating unions were in the exhibition hall at the same time and disagreed about Which job belonged to each. That was ironed out, however, according to the building management... Meanwhile, at Cobo Hall, Detroit, there has been a flare -up of union problems. Some exhibitors at the American Bottlers of Carbonated Beverages show said they were charged excessive rates and that unions required them to pay for tasks they would normally do themselves. Saul Pollak, president of Clapp & Pollak. inc.. manager of the show, said that the labor contract with Detroit Convention Services was "monopolistic." The contract is under attack in court also and the Building management and unions claimed that the complaints arose because the exhibitors had failed to observe rules and scheduling. An earlier show, the National Automobile Show, went off smoothly and this was believed to be because the Detroit auto makers are used to paying Detroit union scales... Detroit problems also include the cancellation of the, 1962 American Legion convention, altho this was because the Legion said hotel facilities were inadequate...

Doc Cassidy Urges Tie -In With Civil War Celebration CHICAGO -L. Doc Cassidy. director of special events and publicity at the Kentucky State Fair, Louisville, urged fairs to get on the Civil War Centennial band wagon, in an address before the fair convention here last week. He pointed out that during a deluge of publicity will be given the centennial thruout the States... The federal government and many State governments have appropriated funds for she centennial and they are looking for ways to spend it... Cassidy said fairs fit into the picture. The Kentucky State Fair last year jumped the gun and actually held n pre -celebration kick -off that garnered them plenty of publicity. To help there are nearly 100 civil war round -table organizations in the U. S. and 50 North -South skirmish associations. Additionally, in the South arc the United Daugthers of the Confederacy and the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Their counterpart in the North are the Military Order of Loyal Legion and the Sons and Daugthers of Union Veterans. Cassidy described the event at the 1960 Kentucky Fair, calling attention to a photo feature in The Billboard's Cavalcade of Fairs. A huge battle scene was spread across the marquee of the fair's coliseum; outside gates were decorated with huge cutouts of Union and Confederate soldiers, cannons were brought in and the event garnered local and national publicity. A U. S. Army band was on hand, a color guard and drill team from Fort Knox and the Louisville High School ROTC band which prepared special drills for the event. Two troops of North -South Skirmishers participated in grey and blue uniforms. At a luncheon co- sponsored by the fair and the Kentucky Civil War Centennial Commission. speakers included Dewey Short, assistant secretary of the Army. Several wives of civil war veterans were also present. The celebration was really a special event and Cassidy stressed these as methods of getting publicity and interesting people. He said there has been a decline in the purely agricultural fair due in part to fewer people now on farms. He pointed out that the decreased rural population has not hurt Sears, Roebuck. They have changed their entire operation to fit these changed conditions. Cassidy said that fairs must concentrate on their natural assets by broadening their base.

ROLLER RUMBLINGS By AL SCIINEIDER THE ROLLER SKATING INDUSTRY, which has yet to add up all the benefits of its 1960 convention, already is loving plans for the 1961 National Skate Queen Contest and business seminars which the sponsoring Roller Skating Foundation of America promises will be even bigger and better. "The publicity from parades, newpapers and radio and TV, not to mention the enormous benefits of the seminars themselves, was the greatest ever " said Joseph F. Sheveison, vice - president of the Chicago Roller Skate Company, who moderated the business meetings, "and the 1961 convention will be produced on an even more extravagant scale." Reports from all over the nation tell Shcvclson that the 1960 contest and seminars at Bal Harbour. Fla., November 13-16, produced what appears to be the greatest publicity bonanza in roller skating history Thousands of words about the queen contest and the seminars were printed in newspapers around - the country. The queen herself statuesque Mimi Hill, of Cincinnati -appeared atop a roller skate - shaped float in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the appearance of New York Yankee infielder Gil McDougald at the convention won roller skating important space on some sports pages that roller skating seldom cracks. Miss Hill, 17, proved her right to the industry's royal robes with a queenly gesture that brought her coronation ball to a close. She presented her silver tiara to Karen Rogers, of Ashland, Neb., who overcame the effects of bulbar and spinal polio with the aid of roller skating and who was a special guest of the RSFA at Bal Harbour. The convention was keynoted by Dr. Shane MacCarthy, chairman of the President's Council on Youth Fitness, and was marked by the appearance of Marlin S. Sieg, a national director of Cub Scouting, and Mrs. Bruce Macintosh, for years a national figure in Girl Scouting. Each accepted a 52,500 award from the roller skating Sales Office Relocated By McFadden - CLARENCE, N. Y. The Mc- Fadden Associates office has been moved front County. Road in Clarence Center to a new location, 9J41 Main Street, Clarence. The firm represents several producers of amusement rides and devices. Installation of a new kind is reported by Richard McFadden. The 60 -lane bowling "Funfare" building erected by the Bowling Corporation of America, Reuben Dank - off, president, includes a 10 -hole miniature golf course provided thru McFadden. It is located at Hillside. N. J., and also includes billiard room. two lounge bars, restaurant and snack bar.

The three owners have substantial stock interest in Pleasure Island,. and Linnet! and Lee are directors of International Recreation Corporation, Inc., builder of Freedom land. One of the first steps the new owners took was to cut the overhead of 272 park attendants to 76, shaving the overhead by 60 per cent. \Vith the one -price policy going, Prescott said, "We began a physical overhaul of the park, creating a new picnic area. parents' rest area and changing the names of rides to shows. For example, Chisholm Trail Show, Wreck of the Hesperus Show are rides. They built a new seat show howl, with stage painting and brightened up the park with areas such as Engine City, Horseless Carriage Land. Magic Land and Baby Animal Land. Among acts headlined at the park were the Three Stooges. Howdy Doody Roadshow Pals, Clarabell and Chief Featherman. Popeye and many others. A jazz festival also was booked into the park under the direction of George Wein of Newport fane. Night at- tractions such as this are planned for next season. which will include strawhat musicals, legitimate shows and concerts. One striking innovation planned for next year is a bathing beach and a wave -making machine which will create Ocean -type breakers 10 feet high. An Outdoor Space Land is in the planning stage.

Million -Dollar Pier in Atlantic City will be installing one of the units, and another will be going to Atlanta, Leon Cassidy reported. Thunderbird Jr. rides also sold well. Lighting Exhibitor Pleased Anteing the trade show surprises was the appearance and reception of Line Material Industries, light - ing engineers. A long list of parks, Kiddielands and golf operations wer» interested in increasing their lighting efficiency through engineered installations. One major carnival, noted for its powerful light towers, was also interested. Line was taking no orders but will send lighting specialists into the field. It tied in with a miniature golf firm to provide its units as part of the golf course package. A number of Double Loop -o- Planes fielded in 1960 by Eycrly Aircraft resulted in considerable interest. Utilizing Roll- o- Planestyled tubs without the revolving action, the ride's simplicity and one -man handling appealed to carnival operators. The connection between the trade show's Iwo rooms was occupied by Arnolt's Amanda Water Scooters, Percy Turnstile, and Audio Tours' talking storybooks, all of which cornered much traffic daring the three and one -half days. Jack Pardo,' had his trackless kiddie circus train at the Morrison Hotel for the (airmen's convention, and Joe De Ritis of Spencerport, N. Y., ordered one after watching it in operation, Earlier in the week it has been at the Sherman in a suite. Santa's Villages reported nt the meetings that they will install three theme -car Monorail units at their parks in 1961, and this news spurred interest in the exhibit of the manufacturer, American Rapid Steins Launch attraction, the show features the Great Arturo (high wire) Family; Naomi's globe. juggling and rope spinning; the Roberts. clowns who toured with Jack Kochman's auto thrill show; Johnny \\'elde's hears; Arturo Twins, trapeze, Miss Ruby's dog and pony act: Capt. Bob Stone, elephant act; Connie Welde, tight -wire ballerina, and Speedy Babbs, globe of death. '61 Fair Meeting Continued from page 44 spoke on "The Civil War Centennial" (see Fair -Exhibition Management column, this issue). Lighting C. M. Cutler, General Electric Company, Cleveland, showed colored slides on lighting effects at a number of world's fairs and expositions and John I:. Campbell. Baltimore, spoke on public liability insurance. Douglas K. Baldwin, Si. Paul, spoke effectively on the "Future of the IAFE" in a brief address in which he paid tribute to many past leaders of the fair association. Clyde Byrd, chairman of the resolutions committee, read his report which called attention to the passing on during 1960 of Charles A. Nash, former manager of the Eastern States Exposition, Springfield, Mass., and 1. M. Rudisill, veteran of the York (Pa.) Interstate Fair. It was also resolved that a message of cheer be sent to Glen Boyd, veteran manager of the Springfield, Mo., fair, who was unable to attend due to illness. Following the Saturday morning session, the International Fairs luncheon was held, Transit Systems, The cars will ha shaped like bumble bees. There will be layouts installed in 1961 by Fairways Miniature Golf. on the basis of convention activity and prior orders. Eighteen were built for last season, Frank Abramoff slated, among them an outdoor one at Hershey (Pa.) Park's ice rink, and an indoor one in the Million- Dollar Pier theater building, Atlantic City. Just finished is a course in a Portland, Me., bowling alley building. in virtually all respects the trade show was superior to editions of recent years. In addition to orders placed on the floor, there ara always many sales pending which are confirmed after the winter holiday season, and this practica is expected to be followed this winter, as usual.

59 um. DECEMBER 12, 1960 BULK VENDING 150 Turn Out for Graff Party; Hear State Legislator Speak DALLAS-Some 150 operators, pests and bulk Industry tradeslers lemon hand as Graff Distributing Company threw its fourth annual Origami party here in true Texas Starting with a day of informal meetings and discussions held at 'Gras showrooms, Saturday (3), the guests later adjourned to the plush Oak Miff Country Club for dinner, a program of entertainment and the drawing for prizes. The latter included such choice items as Ford station wagon, donated by Graff; a 170 -piece ici of bronze cutlery in if teakwood chest, presented by Penny King, and a host of cameras, radios, TV's. gift certificates, watches and the like. donated by charm, machine and fill manufacturers. Most significant from the trade point of view was a warning by Rep. Thomas Jantes. the guest speaker, that increased costs were forcing the State to seek added means of raising revenue. and that the bulk vending industry was as THOMAS JAMES susceptible as any other industry, perhaps more so, because it was a small industry and not well represented. Communications vo 188 W. Randolph 5t.. Chicago 1. III. THE BILLBOARD 59 He urged operators to "tell your story to your State representatives -tell them what the business is like, what a per- machine license will do to the industry. Because I don't know and other legislators don't know." James said he wasn't pushing associations as such, because he had no immediate interest in any such groups -but that operators had to get their story across to the legislators. The Dallas representative, who is now serving his second term in the State House, told operators that 96 per cent of the State's tax dollar was going into four major areas: welfare, education, highways, and law enforcement. He pointed out that Texas' population was growing and that the needs of the State were increasing. Describing the magnitude of the job of a State representative, James said that in the last 60-day session, some 3,000 bills crossed his desk, and that as a practical matter, it was impossible for him to read them all, that two years ago, a vending tan was proposed that would have literally put operators out of business. The bill was defeated at the last minute thru some feverish work on the part of vending industry leaders. 1 om interested in improving my bulk vending operation. Please sand me complete information and prices on Northwestern GOLDEN '50 las illustrated) and otherr; James cautioned he ss s not "here to tell operators how to run your business, but I am here to tell you to take an interest in your government.'

61 r DECEMBER European News Briefs U. S. Agents Check Fruit Units NUREMBURG -7 he Justice Department had dispatched a squad of agents to Europe for on -the -spot investigation of U. S. Fruit machine shipments abroad. Sources at U. S. Army Special Service headquarters her: disclosed that the FBI k looking into fruit machine operations in U. S. military clubs and also into the export of the machines to Britain. The FBI task forces arrival is timed to coincide with the rush in fruit machine shipments for the legalizing of gaming in British private clubs January 1. The FMI mission k concerned with enforcement of the legislation passed in 1951 regulating fruit machine shipments abroad. In fact, the 1951 law does not apply to overseas ship- ments, but sources here said the FBI is insisting on strict registration of all ahipments abroad. It is learned. furthermore. that the FBI will seek more specific authority, very likely in the form of legislation. extending the 1951 act to foreign commerce. The FBI's interest in Wit machine shipments abroad stems mainly from the increasing overseas popularity of the fruits. Not only has Britain liberalized their operations, hut the machines have attracted growing interest all over the Continent, primarily because of their successful operation by the U. S. military service clubs. France Cuts All Tape by April PARIS -Trade Ministry officials say that all restrictions on the importation of U. S. coin machines will be cleared away by April 1 at the latest. Front that date on. American firms will have untrammeled access to the French market. Assurance to this effect wan given Treasury Secretary Robert B. Anderson's mission on its trip here. The Anderson mission discussed with the French, as with the Germans and British, measures to increase American exports. The coin machine situation was explored as an item in the general field of American Manufactured consumer goods. The French informed the Anderson mission in passing, it was learned, that they look for greatly expanded imports of U. S. coin machines. primarily juke boxes and games. Some experts believe liberalization may boom U. S. juke box imports by as much as 50 per cent next year. To large Meal. however. the import situation is geared to the general French economic situation. and this in turn hinges on events in algeria. Industry experts state that au Algerian war truce would boom the French economy tremendously, and with it U. S. coin machine imports. A leading French importer of American boxes said, perhaps too optimistically: "Get me an armistice in the Algerian war, and I'll write orders for 500 new boxes overnight." U. K. Top Haunt for U. S.

Hardly a day passes without the arrival of a visiting fireman troni the U. S., bent on Probing the potentialities of the U. K. market. This country is now the hottest American machine market on the Continent; in fact, anywhere outside the U. S. The boom has been stimulated by the liberalization of British gaming laws. effective January I. But other factors are involved. The boom traces to the currency liberalization of and the subsequent threat of commercial warfare between the rival European trading blocs, the British -led European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and the European Common Market. Lately, the coin machine influx has been spurred by the general U. S. industrial invasion capped by the Ford Motor Company's hid to take complete control of I K. subsidiary.

Internal Revenue Department's ruling that certain types of pin games are gambling devices per se and require the federal S250 putting stamp was argued here on appeal recently in the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Charles A. Stewart of Lonoke, Ark.. operator, and J. W. Singleton. cafe owner of Little Rock. are seeking to overturn the IRS ruling. Stewart owns two bingo -type games in Singleton's K & K Cafe in Little Rock. Stewart, also executive secretary of the Arkansas Music Operators Association, and Singleton filed suit to test the September 9, ruling in federal court in Little Rock, contending that ruling did not comply with U. S. statutes. IRS Argument Their bill said the IRS ruling was predicated on this: If a pin game has certain mechanical characteristics, such as a meter to compute free plays or a slot or provision for multiple coin insertions to increase the odds, this. in effect. is gambling, even tho the machine owner and location owner said the machine was for amusement only and there was no evidence of gambling. Stewart and Singleton's suit contends that under U. S. statutes. if a machine is manufactured for DISCUSS TAX, FINANCE, LEGAL ITEMS amusement only and is so aa.d, it could not be a gambling device and would not require the federal 5250 gaming stamp. 'their suit asked an injunction against the U. S. to restrain them from assessing or collecting this S250 tax on the type machines the IRS ruled were gaming devices per se. When the injunction hearing was held in federal court in Little Rock, government attorneys from Washington contended that the federal court had no jurisdiction because by certain federal lawn an injunction cannot be issued against the U. S. restraining it from levying and collecting taxes. The federal court judge held with the U. S. The attorney for Stewart and Singleton, Leonard l_ Scott of Little Rock, said the ruling amounted to a declaratory judgment. in which the judge held that you can't get an injunction against the government to prevent them from collecting federal taxes. In the appeal here before the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Scott questioned in oral argument whether this IRS ruling was an exception to the rule. If the U. S. Circuit Court of Apppeals holds that the IRS ruling was invalid. then an injunction can be issued against the government to prevent them front collecting the $250 tax. If the court rules against Stewart and Singleton, Scott said, it is not necessarily a ruling on the merits of the case, which may have to be tried later. Special Operators' Forum Draws 75 to Atlantic NY Headquarters - NEW YORK Store than 75 operators jammed the showrooms of Atlantic New York, local See - burg distributor, Monday evening (5) when the firm held a special "operators' foram," on business problems, grievances and aspirations. The meeting was called by Atlantic President Meyer C. Park - off, who arranged for the presence of three guest speakers to discuss in detail tax, financing and legal problems of operators. Refreshments were served at the meeting. Parkoff prefaced the session by presenting a list of questions. which he called "uppermost in our minds." These he enumerated as Ill Shall we diversify and how shall we do it? (2) The demands of storekeepers in terms of loans and bonuses. (3) Legal problems, including the manner in which to handle location contracts and an operator's legal responsibilities to the industry. (4) The matter of accounting procedures on such matters as sales taxes, occupancy taxes and the New York City (GOAD) lax on juke boxes. (5) How to improve operator public relations in the community.

Other operators immediately chimed in to report similar experiences. Surprisingly, the source of the sales appeared to come from outside the coin machine industry. Operators mentioned one firm, identified only as "Lakeland in Minneapolis," as having long been active in this field and lately coming south to Lincoln, Columbus, Norfolk and Omaha, Nah. Free Lance Pair Another operator mentioned a so- called "free -lance pair in Omaha," who-he heard -were going as far east as Chicago to buy equipment for import to Nebraska for location sales. The Omaha pair have reportedly lined up a couple of free -lance mechanics to do their servicing. One operator said, as a solution, he would do the same thing, rather than lose customers. Other operators nodded in agreement. Another group, however, suggested that the operators work out some form of leasing plan. whereby equipment is leased or rented tel the location, with the operators providing service. programming and any other needed help. Altho no firm conclusions were reached. it was apparent that the problem had become a hot one for the area and that more fireworks could be expected. Expressing a more optimistic note was Howard Ellis, nresident of the Nebraska group. sullo said he felt the operators had nothing to fear if they provided the proper service and took care of their locations properly. Ellis said he didn't see location sales as having any long -range effects in the business and felt the only operators who were realty vulnerable were those neglecting their locations and not servicing them properly. There were other implications in the discussions among operators that the wave of location selling might "shake the industry up a bit." and get the operators to return to more aggressive sales, promotion and servicing techniques. The location sales argument has long been a thorny one in the coin machine industry.

The theory was reinforced from time to time when occasionally. oration sales would be made, usually ending with disasterous results. The location owner would usually lose interest in the equipment after a few months and the equip- ment would go to pot. Servicing was generally poor. and such fine points as programming and point - of -sales promotion were neglected altogether. Recently, however, there have been various murmers from responsible quarters of the coin machine industry, indicating that some form of locatioh selling might be successful if properly done. Advantages were thought to be an increased interest on the part of the location owner in the equipment, since he now owned il. Most notable benefit would be better promotion of the equipment with the location's customers. In response to the various opinions and straws in the wind that were popping up, The Billboard recently interviewed a leading exponent of this thinking, who, incidentally, is a veteran of the industry and one of the industry's most active champions and respected spokesmen. These opinions, published in The Billboard, November 21, indicated in substance, that distributors Federal Court Upholds Gaming Tax Ruling WASHINGTON- Circuit Court Judge Philip H.

Two of the defendants challenge the constitutionality of the Wheat - Igy Law. In December of last year they asked Circuit Court Judge John R. Fletcher to dismiss the charges. The judge became ill before rendering an opinion, and the case was given to Judge Dorsey, Defendants argued that the law refers to "coin- operated" devices. Coin slots were plugged on the machines in question. and the devices were operated by buttons. Judge Dorsey contended that the Legislature "intended to make illegal the machines described in the act not because of their method of opera - lion but because they were being used for gambling." He said that anti- gambling laws should he "interpreted liberally so as to prevent the mischief intended to be provided against." Judge's ruling will make it possihle for State's Attorney William L. Kahler to haul into court on gambling charges the owners of about 90 taverns and other estab- lishments that purchased gaming stamps. Kahler is not planning an immediate crackdown, however. He first wants the county delegation to the State Assembly to plead for legislation that would ban gaming pinballs from Prince Georges. He fears that the Wheatley law "isn't going to be enough to get a conviction." should sell equipment to locations, and that operators should provide the services needed - mechanical upkeep, programming and other necessary maintenance. The opinions were presented - not because they reflected The Billboard's approval or disapproval -hut because The Billboard felt they should be brought out in the open and aired. Immediately a flood of opinion resulted. Two operators whose views were published in last week's Billboard. Gordon. Stout and Mrs. M. McCarthy, indicated for a variety of reasons their opposition. Judging however froto the discussion that took place in Nebraska over what is actually going on in the State. the subject is far from dead, and likely to come in for a great deal more discussion in days to come. 'the recent Nebraska meeting was held at Columbus' Evans Motel, with Mr. and Mrs. Frank Molys and Mr. and Mrs. (Duc) Stroh as hosts. The conclave followed the association's new format, introduced in Norfolk. Neb., last Octo- ber. Cocktails, dinner and entertainment were held Saturday evening with the business session following Sunday morning. The group adjourned early to enable operators to get on the highways before dusk.

He pointed out the importance of having hooks regularly audited by CPA's. Getting a better bréd( on taxes begins with properly kept books, according to Klein. He noted new methods of figuring depreciation. in view of the fact that salvage value of used equipment is taxable. He also discussed various points on sales and use taxes. Another speaker was James S. Hindle, a vice -president of the Manufacturers Trust Company. consumer loan division. Pointing out that hanks already are handling thousands of dollars worth of juke box paper, he told the operators how to approach banks to obtain credit, and the type of information an operator must submit to qualify for a loan. There were a number of questions from the operators regarding procedures of getting money. Jacob Schuldet, president of the Gibraltar Factors Corporation, spoke on his deep interest in the coin machine field. He noted that his firm has advanced over 81 million in credit to operators and that he has attempted to educate a number of bankers on the matter of extending credit in the juke box industry. Location Contracta Final speaker was attorney Joe Godman. one of the better known young lawyers associated with the coin field here. Godman discussed in detail the importance of properly drown location contracts. Parkoff said that the two- and -ahalf -hour affair was the first of what he frankly hoped would be a series of meetings. Later in the week, he noted that he had received "a very encouraging" reaction front operators, many of whom called to ask about the next meeting. It is hoped to hold this "get together" in the near future, according to Parkoff, with the likely subject matter being the value of operator diversification. A year ago, Atlantic sponsored a similarly successful operator symposium in its offices.

Robert B. bleyner's plan to raise the tax on cigarettes by 1 cent a pack to benefit State institutions was rejected by the Republican- controlled State Senate. This means operators will be able to go on collecting two "bonus pennies" instead of just one. The going rate per pack over the counter is 28 cents. To make things easier, operators charge a flat 30 cents in their machines. As a result, they make 2 cents more than the corner dnigstore does over the counter If the price went up to 29 cents, this "bonus" would have been cul in half and the vending machine industry would have lost thousands of dollars in the State.

German Trade Embargo Stymies Red Coin Program - EAST BERLIN West Germany's embargo on trade with East Germany is hamstringing the Communist coin machine program. The embargo on trade with East Germany is not effective until December 31, but as the cut -off date approaches West German firms are delaying, reducing and suspending deliveries altogether. This applies to West Germany's coin machine industry equally with 'other sectors of the Bonn republic's economy. West German manufac- Iturers see no point into pumping 6 POCKET POOLS..$ Ft.

'Ihe majority of coin machine manufacturers appear to favor writing off the East Cierman market entirely until such time as sound trade conditions prevail. Little Patience Even assuming that the present East -West German rift is patched over, the producers have little patience with the on- again. off - again character of trade with the Communist bloc. Moreover, the hard -headed pro- ducer is obliged to assume that Communist interest in his coin machines is motivated mainly by the desire to order only enough to use for copying and general experimentation connected with development of Communist -bloc coin machine industry. But, as seen from the other side of the curtain, the situation is downright distressing. East Germany has been importing a modest but expanding amount of West German coin machine equipment. The East Germans, along with the rest of the Communist bloc, are working to develop a home -grown coin machine industry. Development Base But this development will re- quire some years -and a substantial investment in Western coin machines as a base for development of the domestic industry. West Germany has been selling the East Germans a considerable amount of vending equipment, an increasing number of juke boxes and some games. This equipment the East Germans then put on location to analyze customer reaction and to gauge potential patronage and the problems to be anticipated. Furthermore, it is no secret that the Communist strip down the Western coin machines to study construction and analyze workmanship, much in the manner that Detroit automakers strip down foreign -made cars as well as those of their domestic competitors. Restricted Contact There has been fairly friendly, although restricted contact betweeh the East and West German coin machine industries. The East Germans are developing their coin machine production center at Lueckenwalde. East Gelman emphasis is gradually shifting front vending machines, which have general priority in the Communist bloc, to juke boxes and even games. The East Germans produce acceptable vend- ing machines, but they have failed so far to build a satisfactory juke box for mass production. However, East Germany has an excellent electro- technical industry, perhaps the best in the Communist block, and the East Germans concerned say it is merely a matter of receiving a State priority for music box development and then concentrating sufficient technical resources on the project. Soviet Juke Box The Soviet Union is planning to mass produce an 50- selection box for the Communist market, the Radocte, but East German sources state that East Germany is still interested in building its own box. One source explained, The Ra- docte sounds fine, and knowing the Russians we can be certain it will be a fine box. But you need variety in juke boxes as well as automobiles, and we feel there is room for two or three or even four juke box models inside our trading area. "And there are technical problems involved; we can't be certain Russia will produce enough boxes to supply the market outside Russia. And we like the idea of having our own juke box models designed for our market. For if we depend on the Russians for juke boxes that simply means we, have to sell them something else in return. So we might as well produce our own boxes in the first place, since we have the industry and the labor skills to do so." Prior to the trade blow -up, there had even been talk of sending East Germans to West Germany, for limited periods, to observe production processes in West German plants. Certain East German coin machine king - pins have even dreamed of sending a reconnaissance mission to Chicago, which is looked on here as the heartland of the World coin machine industry. But the Berlin flare -tip has put the damper on all such grandiose schemes. Negotiations for a new East -West Cierman trade pact are continuing spasmodically, but the outlook is for a long period of unsettled trade weather. Independence Ups Nigeria's Coin Imports - LAGOS, Nigeria Nigerian independence is booming this country's coin machine imports. Nigerian commerce officials state that 250 juke boxes were imported into the country in the last six months, a figure roughly equal to total 1959 imports. Representatives of West Germany and United Kingdom coin machine concerns are beginning to make Lagos a regular port of call on sales forays into the awakening continent. At the same time, independence is serving as a general stimulus for the entire Nigerian economy. This economic upsurge is reflected in the expanding market for automatic merchandising equipment. The West Germans have the inside track on the Nigerian coin machine market. Even before Nigerian independence, West German firms were dispatching periodic trade missions to this country. Nigerian government representatives were invited to Bonn for West Germany's recent "African Week" observance aimed at drawing African nations closer commercially to West Germany.

Browning. a distributor for less than a year with AMI. - likewise optimistic.
