WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 27, 1030 Osccola Socicly — Personal Music Thai And Round Strong Comeback 11V GEQKGE JU1SS NEW YORK, Sfjit. 27,-The imi- >.ic thai fjoe.? 'round and nrouml on phonograph records spins 70 per cent more often than in )9;« when the dcmnnd for wax disc: struck bottom. Tin- "Krnmaphorie' ''•is- c-ome bad: Into its own. Tin l-.ndco Caruso era for the disc "inkers has ucen revived, and the ««e of jitterbugs also has hypoa (lie dormant industry. Vou can gel tonic notion cf UK record i-enaissniifc by the ntiml!c of nlckel-in-flic-slot. phonogrniu machines now installed in the din- ITS, bcaneries, hotel.'; and barbei shops iill over Hie United States A conservative guess puts them a not much less than a half million H takes n deal of wax to feed « many public music boxes. Many mi idolized bandleader o this band-mad moment has re ceived his first jolt into the limelight via ;i "hot plate," as the trade calls a fast-selling disc. Hal Kemp recorded "Got a Date With nn Angel" three, years ago nnd his climb to eminence was rapid, in 1930, nn Jnconsplcuou; lad named Benny Goodman recorded a piece labelled "Slompin at, the Savoy" and Tommy Dorse> made cne called "Song of India. 1 Both have been running neck-and- ncck for fame since then. A year ago. Artie Shaw's "Begin the Beg>'in" sold enough records to make a success of him and currently a bespectacled musician named Glenn Miller is Ihe "hot plate" king QUICK ZVIONGV IN RECORDING The same impetus that the discs can give to a bandleader goes for a song ns well. That current mania "Beer Barrel Polka" is a hit-tune sculptured in was. Composed by wholly unknown Czech Umcsmfth by the name cf Jaromir Vejvoda, it originally was recorded in Prague by an undistinguished brass band led by a fellow named will Glabe. The record war, brought here as a matter of routine, copies made ami sent oat to the drop-a-nickel phonograph operators. In Chicat-o aim Detroit, the song caught on with unprecedented speed. The wtrd was passed around to other cities and there were similar repercussions: "Beer Barrel Polkn" j?has>) outsold 1 .- any other record tins year, has become a hit tme on the etherlanes and has earned n considerable fortune. Unfortunately, the Czech composer and bandleader don't have loo much use for mcney in their homeland at this moment. A lucrative commodity, waxed music brings moncy, v as well as fame, to the orchestras that, play their tunes for it. They say that Benny Goodman spends two or throe hour.s before the recording apparatus, plays four songs, and walks out with gross earnuv,> s cf four thousand dollars -not hay in anyone's pocket. A thousand dollars for a rendition of n swing number is just about lops, but it illustrates how the record mart lias come back into its own. Popular music is the phonographic peak in supply and demand, but the disc-makers here in New Work declare that there lias ben a renaissance ot interest also, around the country in classical music. I can recall when a home was virtually bare without a complete album of Enrico Caruso, Ger- nldinc Furrar ami Galli-curei! WAR .UTTERS I.INGKR OX . I have talked to many refugee Americans who thankfully alight from boats that make port here and their expressing are uniformly those of folk who have been saved from a ghastly, nightmarish ordeal. Here is a melodramatic illustration of it, Among the war fugitives on the S. S. Washington the other toy • were the film actor, Robert Montgomery and the director, Richard Thorpe, Mrs. Th:rpe and their small soil. A few hours later, the Thorpes were comfortably biHetted at the Wai- dorf-Astotia, discussing the scene abroad with friends. On the street, in Park Avenue, a fire engine clanged by and the siren screeched. Almost instinctively, Mrs. Thorpe glanced in alarm at her husband n>K | then her son. and he rose from his chair almost automatically. Tlie jitters are hard to overcome soon after return fvcm the war zone. And yet there are ninny incongruities. A man who awns n famous cafe in London and who came liere before hostilities opened, showed me a telegram the oilier night from his London manager, sent two weeks after the war was declared.
