Wilson of the National Better Business Bureau warned today. Some of these sharp operators make so. much money in the Yule season by trimming , the unwary that they don't have to work the rest of the year. Some of their shoddy merchandise rackets and outright thefts are carried on the year around but activity is stepped up between Thanksgiving day arid Christmas. Wilson warned folks to watch out for these swindles, always prevalent this time of year- Street corner hawkers peddling cheap watches, fake perfumes, ramshackle toys and other shoddy goods. - Hail order ads or telephone solicitors offering well known branded merchandise at suspiciously low prices. When the goods finally come, they turn out to be cheap imitations. Hustlers who harass business men who buy Christmas gifts in quantity or solicit orders at factory gates. Solicitors of gifts for phony charities. Some of the rackets are outright theft—such as the "delivery man" who tries to get you to pay the c-o-d charge on a package for your neighbor who isn't home. When the package is opened it contains waste paper. "iPerfume rackets are the biggest Christmas swindle headache," Wilson said, "because perfume is such a popular gift." The most widespread and plausible perfume racket is the sale of what are supposed to be tiny purse sized bottles of famous and expensive perfumes at bargain prices. Actually, the little bottles contain cheap toilet water. Counterfeiting the labels of famous perfumes also is common practice by Yuletide swindlers, Wilson said. REPORTED MISSING KENT WOODLANDS, Calif. (UPI)—Ecght - year - old Diana Lynn Sapia and her brother, Brian, 4, were reported missing Sunday. Police bloodhounds found them 10 hours later under the front porch of their home. LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Several cowboys during the weeklong national rodeo finals which ended Sunday at the Sports Arena were tromped on as they parted company from their animals or suffered other painful —and sometimes serious — injuries. But the only participant taken from the arena on a stretcher was a calf. 'BALL BLOCKS DRAIN SHELTOX, England (UPI)— A tennis ball which blocked a drain at St. Mark's Church here caused water to back up and rot the roof timbers. Damage was estimated at §70.000. ; UPI Financial Editor NEW YORK (UPI) —It may be a housewife, a doctor or a laborer who turns up with an idea for a profit'; producing" game, said Robert 1 B. M. Barton. "No one particular group has a monopoly on ' ideas for games," smiled Barton, president of Parker Brothers, Inc., one of the world's largest publishers of games. "But for. every hundred ideas turned in, only one, or less, may be worth even a trial." "Furthermore," he continued in a recent interview here, "many of them turn out to be merely pale imitations of existing games. And people don't like mere imitations of a game with which they''already are familiar." Although George Parker, a founder of the firm, was him r self Jan inventor of hundreds' o£ suc/essful games, the one which' has been the firm's biggest seller, Monopoly, came to them from an outsider. It was originated by Charles B. Darrow, who developed it in 1933 and of-' fered it to Parker. It was at first refused and he began to produce it himself, when Parker changed its corporate mind and bought it. It has sold more than 35 million copies throughout the world; there are almost no countries of the Western World which do not have it, and it is published in a dozen languages. The Soviet Union, however, won't let it in; it is too capitalistic. "Just as a novelty, we put out an edition in an elaborate and attractive wooden box this season," said Barton. "We didn't expect much from it. But one store (he named a prominent New York toy store) decided to put it in its catalogue. The stock rapidly ran down to 100 and then 75 before the buyer called up and demanded 2,000 more." Barton joined Parker Brothers as assistant treasurer in 1932 and was named to the presidency in 1923. Except for naval service which he began in May, 1942, he has been active in the post ever since.
