Twenty-nine per cent plan to invest from 90 to 99 per cent of their ad dollars in newspapers, and 24 per cent will invest from 80 to 89 per cent in newspaper advertising. Men's and women's wear are the leading merchandise categories expected to show the biggest percentage gain this Christmas over a year ago. Merchants are also relying on toys, major and small appliances, color TV. and cosmetics to score high sales gains over last year. Nearly half the retailers surveyed expect Christmas business will be harder to get than last year, while 36 per cent say business will be about the same. The main reasons are competition and four fewer shopping days betwen Thanksgiving and Christmas. Safety Glass There are three kinds safety glass tempered, lam mated and wired.

These will be used for news broadcasting of a community nature "as a supplement to local station, or other news media, but not, compete with them," according to Kandell. The company says it is the nation's second largest CATV operating group with about 125,000 subscribers throughout continental U.S.A. and in Honolulu. It claims that with its systems in New York and Los Angeles it has the greatest viewer potential. Hughes Aircraft Co. owns approximately 17 per cent of its stock. Listing is on the American Stock Exchange. Irving B. Kahn, president of the firm, predicted more than three years ago that 85 per cent of the nation would be wired for CATV within a decade. A recognized authority on the systems. Kahn said that cable television would become the primary rather than the supplemental communications media. Continued From Fl ances from Federal Aviation Agency to assure no interference with airplane communication, and, of course, the overseeing Federal Communications Commission checks on the course of action at all times. Kandell feels he may have to contend with some 30 different permits to complete the current phase of the project. The firm must also pay the communities for allowing it to operate. For example, it offered West Palm Beach a guarantee of $25,000 yearly, or a rate scale which starts at 4 per cent of the first $250,000 annual gross income. Some of the technical excellence behind CATV is that it uses a separate antenna, each carefully aimed, to receive the program from each station. The antennas are placed in a carefully selected spot, the higher and clearer, the better. The firm paid $15,000 for a 10-acre site to hold a 300-foot tower. The law demands enough room, "just in case it falls," so that it does not fall on someone else's property. Tower location is near Lake Worth Road and SR7. From here the signal is relayed by microwave to the system's electronic centers along the coast. Each microwave hop is about 12 miles. From the centers the signal is fed into a complicated assortment of electronic gear, and finally fed into the cable network which takes it to the subscriber. TelePrompTer has purchased a building in West Palm Beach which will be its headquarters. It is now undergoing extensive alterations. The facility will have equipment for originating news, weather and stock market information. It will also be an emergency alert system for possible disaster action. -rt-tf Portofino, the number one address in the Palm Beaches Mobile Home Annual Issued Mobile home living . . . like it is . is the subject of a new earbook.
