Big Profits in Small Pooches By HAL BOYLE AP Staff Writer NEW YORK—If the music business ever goes to the dogs, Xavier Cugat is ready to turn the tables ' by making the bow-wows go intc business for him. The rhumba king plans to become a dog farmer when he finally hangs up his fiddle and his bow. His speciality is the breed he has made into his personal trade mark—the tiny Chihuahua. Already he owns by far the largest collection in America. "I've got 600 on my ranch in California," he said, "And when I get 1,000 I'il really be ready to start operating." • * * HIS DOGS HARDLY have to worry yet about supporting Cugat, however. He estimates his band has grossed SIS.OOO.OOO in the last 20 years. It is still in the peak bracket, drawing from $6,000 to " play at a society wedding or $15,000 for a week at a theater. Cugat is a jack-of-all trades who found the best way to hit the jackpot is to specialize. The 51-year- jld Spanish-born musician toured with Cai-uso as a violinist, then worked as a newspaper cartoonist before starting his own band. "I just was getting fill-in jobs until I noticed that this is a country of specialization," he said. • * . • 4; HE PICKED THE UNCRQWD- ED FIELD of Latin-American music. Helping popularize the rhumba, the conga and the samba made him rich. So did his hobbies. He has a dozen profitable sidelines ranging from hand-painted neckties to Cugat linens, plastic canasta sets, and raising Chihuahuas. Raising Chihuahuas en masse, however, iSw inexpensive, as they eat little. "It's a fantastic business," said Cugat. "Practically no overhead. And the dogs bring anything from $200 to $1,000 each. "In any other business if you sell a man something he will find fault with it later. But when you sell a dog, you never hear a cross word afterward from your buyer." Th potato originated along the Pacific coast of South America and was introduced into Europe by the Spaniards.
