Madison at Halsfed 421-7600 Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Records Spinning Way to Top BY LYNN TAYLOR Recorded messages are cutting a ftter slice of the advertising media pie for themselves as advertisers are discovering that they can add a special punch, or a new dimension, to whatever they are trying to sell. The product is not necessarily commercial. Ronald Reagan turned to messages on i vinyl during his political cam paign. Colleges, churches, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts have used records in filnd-raising campaigns. The Evanston Chamber of Commerce recently used a recording in their yearly statements to members and prospective members. Reagan, the Boston museum, and Evanston are all customers of Eva-Tone, pioneer manufacturer of vinyl soundsheets in Deerfield. So is the National Geographic. - As Memorial Tribute It was the black soundsheet i in the National Geographic of August, 1965, a Winston Churchill tribute issue, that brought Eva-Tone to the attention of 4.5 million readers and on the road to acceptability as a communications medium. Norman Welch of Eva-Tone said the company still receives orders from customers who refer in tho Churchill record as their source. New uses for the soundsheet continually arc being discovered. It entered the pharmaceutical advertising field this September when Eli Lilly & company, Indianapolis, decided to use a record to help promote its oral contraceptive, C-Quens. The original order of 1.5 million soundsheets was distributed to the 1,000 Lilly salesmen at the beginning of September. By the end of the month, another order had to be placed with Eva-Tone for a second 1.5 million soundsheets. Now in Spanish This time, however, 320,000 were recorded in Spanish, a recommendation received from doctors in New York, California, and Texas. "There arc, as yet, no formal results, George Ginn, market plans manager of the Lilly company said, "it : will take some time to evaluate the program. But we're very enthusiastic about it." The record basically is informative, repealing what is learned from the doctor. It is given only to doctors for distribution to patients when the salesmen make their rounds. It was designed to be a . . - Ad Rqw Roundup Executives can be coached ! on their speaking technique by a new firm. Speakers Labora- ; tory, 612 N.

Easier than Reading Altho Lilly has a booklet which covers the same subject, Ginn feels that some people don't like to read, that it is a chore. He said a .woman would rather call her doctor when she has a question than thumb thru an instruction booklet. Instead, she can play the record. Lilly company has decided to continue using of the soundsheet as a result of its immediate success. Welch said Eva-Tone company doesn't think that records, as a communications medium, have as yet started to use their potential. Every company in the country can make some use of them, he said. The company started making cardboard records in 1957 but switched to the longer-lasting vinyl in I960. Future uses of the record might include on-pack distribution, as a premium offer with top talent recording, and as a training device for companies. Montgomery Ward already uses records for updating sales personnel). Welch said that the record also has potential in employe communications. "This is not a gimmick." Welch said. "It's a good program. But we still have to educate people to our business because it's so new." John Connor to Receive Ad Council Award John T.
