Fourteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Novel Electronic Machines Used Here for Time The Golden Rule has introduced punehed-card merchandising in gansport in what may be the beginning of a new era of promotion for the'public. * The idea is being developed in cooperation with the Remington Rand Univac division of Sperry Rand corporation. To effect the cash rebates given during this week, the Golden Rule has placed four Remington Rand electronic machines — valued at $50,000—in its Broadway show window. t This is how the operation works: A large quantity of punched cards every have been department distributed to in the store. Pre-punched into the cards will be a discount figure. These cards have been pre-punched with varying discount amounts and randomly distributed within the store and within each department. Only the Remington Rand machinery is capable of determining the amount of discount. No one' knows what discount figure is on any particular card. During the electronic discount sale every customer making a purchase in any department will be given a punched card along with a duplicate sales slip. The customer takes the card and the duplicate sales slip to the computing center in the store show window. , At this point the electronic equipment takes over. The card is fed into a series of machines, the first of which punches into the card the amount of the customer's purely ase, the customer's name, and other data- for the store's information. The card then goes to a calculating punch machine which calculates and punches into the card the dollar amount of the customer's discount winnings based upon the amount of the purchase and percentage figure already punched into the card. Then the card is fed into an interpreter machine which "reads" the punches in the card and prints the information on the card.-The card indicating the amount is the purchase, the customer's name, and the amount of their discounts s then returned to the customer, who takes the card to a' cashier's desk and is given the actual cash amount of winnings shown on the card. If the purchase 'is on the charge account-the cashier credits he customer's account with the amount of his winnings.
