. 14— THE BAYTOWN SUN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1954 Roger Babson Says — New Vending Machines Cannot Replace Personal Selling BABSON PARK, Mass — As happens every once in a while, stories have been going around which portray 3. brilliant outlook for the automatic vending machine business. Unscrupulous promoters paint the future in most vivid colors, exaggerating the sales potential and nardly mentioning the operating 'costs and other problems. DISTINCT ADVANTAGES — This robot is essentially a supplementary salesman. Automatic vendors do well on low-cost items such as cigarots and candy, which merchants offen sell only as an accommodation. Machines can take over the. sale of such merchandise and generally show a smalj profit. 'Furthermore, they don't get into the habit of smoking "on the house" as do many employes, and they never as}\. for a raise or a day off! SUN SLANTS ED KILMAN VISITS ED KILMAN. EDITOR of the editorial page of The Houston Post, really turned back the pages of time the other night in a talk at the men's brotherhood of the First Presbyterian Church. Ed is a well known Texas historian, and he discussed at. length many of the early Texas patriots who either lived or had reason to spend considerable time in this part of the state. He told interesting and thrilling stories about David G. Burnet, Ashbel Sniith, Sam Hoi:) in, De Zavala and others whose names now dot the history books. - . All of this action came in the days prior to 1850. DISSOLVING CHAMBERS COUNTY LATER ED pulled out some old newspaper clippings that detailed a trip he made in 1927 with W. .. T. Busch. E. W.-Bruce and others into Chamber County to talk to those people about a plan to dissolve Chambers County with Harris County extend- ing'its' boundaries to one side of the Trinity and Jefferson County extending its mounds west on the • other side. They talked to many 'people,' and got warm reception in West Chambers County and in the extreme eastern,section of the county. But when they got into the Anahuac area—the most densely populated area—they hit a brick wall. '', Worse than that the Anahuac Progress jumped on 'Kilman and Busch in big" headlines for trying to dissolve Chambers County. , It all happened so Jong ago, most of the details are now .humorous, but they weren't funny at the time. .'/* i . . There was one historical fact that was definitely .settled. It showed how long W. T. Busch has been working for an east-\vest state highway between Houston and Port Arthur that will cut right across •Chambers County. • .; - • Busch told those people .in 1927 that they stood to get this'road as well as fine lateral roads if they chose to-join the two, large counties. -The mid-Chambers County people didn't see it that way, but Busch from that day to this has.nev- er quit working for that highway connecting link.; And: it should be pointed put here that the road is now closer to realization than it has ever baen in ,the -past. It appears that the .last link will be the •highway through Chambers County. It appears also LOOKING AT LIFE A NEW YORK MINISTER recently asked the members of his congregation to.tell him whether, it' i. they could live their lives over again, they would '„' live" them differently or thu same as they are doing now. To make sure,that they would not just give him a lot of hifaiutin' palaver, he asked them not to sign their names to the replies. The answers that came in were amazing. Not one of the writers Was satisfied with his present way of living.• Some of them, would be more charitable; others wouldgo to"church more regularly; still others would be more brotherly, more tolerant and more sympathetic. The story was published in the New York newspapers and brought the following letter, which I . quote in part, "I WOULD NOT CHANGE one .iota. I relish the memory of each episode of my life, and am thankful for it. I rejoice in that I did the best I could with the talents entrusted to mo." That is exactly the way 1 reel, and I believe that Is the way most of us feel. ' If we were really so anxious to follow the qualms of our conscience and if we REALLY intended to live different lives if we "could live our lives over again," why didn't we do so as we went along, and why do-we have to wait for another life to become the kind of persons we WANT to be? Is there anything- to prevent us from leading different lives right NOW while we are still alive, in. stead of ; just dreaming about it? WITH 1954 HARDLY, BEGUN, isn't there ample . opportunity for us to be more charitable, more re- ALONG BROADWAY NEW YORK — As usual, the "Hollywood Ice Revue", is a colorful extravaganza that contains enough entertainment to satisfy anyone. *• Barbara Ann Scott, the talented Canadian, is with the troupe again this year, along with two new hcadliners, Jacqueline Du Bief, French world champion, and Peter Firstbrook, thrice holder of the • Canadian championship for men figure skaters. The present visit to Madison Square Garden is the 16th in as many years for the Arthur M. Wirtz show. This edition looks to be the best costumed of them all, which is saying a lot, and the production numbers, involving the many intricate maneuvers of the large chorus; are certainly on a par with ,what has gone before. Freddie Trenkler, the Four Bruises, Skippy Baxter, Bobby Blake, Jerry Mapes and Jack, Rafflocr are other outstanding members of the cast. A WATCH was more or less responsible for Lome Greene landing his job as Katherine Cornell's lead- Ing man in "The Prescott Proposals." Greene has been a leading newscaster and com' inentator on Canadian radio for years. As such, the split second was important to him .and he didn't Another rapidly growing field where the machines play a valuable role is in suppij'ing snacks wnere food is not otherwise available. These machines offer factories an ideal means of providing quick-energy foods which keep both morale and efficiency high. There is then no need to "send out" or to take a half-hour "walk" to the corner drugstore. PROFITS NOT LARGE — But these uses, while they assure further growth to the industry, do not constitute a golden road to riches. fact is that the average volume of sales per machine is surprisingly low. The ordinary cigaret machine (and cigaret-s account for over half of all VBJiding-ma- chine sales) dispenses about 15 packs a day. It is clear that at this rate there must be a large investment in robots in order to support a service- man who will load, repair, and collect coins from the machines. The daily net profit for the owner is figured in fractions of pennies. • -. . • In addition, vandalism by small boys and petty thieves is an occupational hazard of the robot It must be located where there is.heavy traffic at all times, or where there is an employe doing other work. Public locations are unsatisfactory. Certainly/there is no profit if a blue-uniformed "clerk" must stand ready to defend the machine with his' nightstick! This means that'the further growth, of such machines will come in stores where vandalism cannot occur.' • PERSONAL APPROACH — Machines do not know the psychology.of selling. It is a mistake, therefore, to believe that they can ever take over the job of an enthusiastic clerk who has a true "sales appeal"-' They are able to sell only well-known, low-cost items that people already want. Products that peo- . pie want to feel, or try for size, cannot yet. be automatically dispensed. Also, experience has shown that the average citizen hesitates to drctp anything larger than a quarter in a-machine; and there are few persons indeed who will deposit a dollar or • more in a gadget that they are not sure will work. Therefore, I am not now forecasting that; robot _ selling machines will go far toward-displacing sales 'clerks, but they may discourage further wage raises.- I do predict, however, that the extent to which', the robot filially supersedes the blonde.will materially depend upon advertising and packaging. . IMPORTANCE OF ADVERTISING — It is significant that the'products which move well through automatic selling devices are well-known brands. "Dime" chains are giving them careful study ta connection with- "self-selection" stores. Of count, the nation's leading practical psychologist! will;h»y« to devote their great experience and talent to,th« problem of pro-selling, anything that i* earmarked for quantity distribution '.[ by machines. Hence, tin robot should increase newspaper advertising. f ' The first step will be clever packaging:; : And ohe« a good design has been "achieved, it must regeat- edly, day after day,- year in and year out, b* put before the buying public. The manufacturer who does not make full use of good packaging and.newi- paper advertising,will not get repeat orders '/tntn vending machine" operators. Therefore, I conclude "that robot selling does have its place in certain stores where its-uses have not as yet been fulty; exploited. • But T warn readers not to be misled; robotl are now far from being mechanical gold ihinei; By Fred Hartman that steady progress will. be made in 1954 on the two biggest bridges that will be a part of the project. They are the ones across the San Jacinto and the Trinity. The bridges across Old and Lost rivers arc already under construction. Had I had any inkling that Ed Kilman would have reviewed that old fight that took ip-lace when Ed was a reporter for the Houston Post-Dispatch, I would have mace W. T. Busch a Presbyterian for the night so he could have heard it. I know he would have gotten a good laugh. I'm going to tell W. T. Busch that he should drop by Ed's office some day while he's in .Houston and read those clippings. I'm sure you could hear them laugh a block down the street. HOW HUMBLE STARTED : KILMAN ALSO HAS an article he has written that gives the late Former Gov. P k . S. Sterling's personal views on how the Humble Oil and Refining Co. was 'formed arid how the Humble, and New Jersey Standard got together in-their now-famous deal. They were dickering up there in New York and the Standard people wanted the Humble people to sell them control of Humble. , . "We can't do that," Gov.. Sterling told the Standards. "We've got stockholders all over Texas,, and we couldn't sell them down the river. You know; gentlemen, some of them may not think as much of you as we do." • So Standard settled for 50 per cent. Later Sterling returned to Houston and was upbraided by a friend for letting Standard ''take you over." "They didn't take us over," he said. "We took them, over." • ..;. . ' / Later Gov. Sterling' told Kilman that his words- of prophesy proved correct because so many Humble executives went on to take high executive spots in the Standard- organization. APPLAUDING SPEECH NOTHING IS more interesting than for a person who knows what he's talk about the early days of any community. . , Editor Kilman was in fine form, and the Presbyterians wouldn't let him quit:They yelled for more. When a group of people demand an encore, you know you've done a good job. • , : For that reason Ed Kilman ought to have known he was certainly among interested listeners. By Erich Brandeis ligious, more brotherly, more tolerant, more sympathetic? But you know what New Year's resolutions are. Here today, forgotten tomorrow. To .too many of us life is just one continuous, hangover. We know darn well that what we do is wrong, but we haven't the guts to stop. There is nary'a human being alive who does not know all the rules for a good life. It's all written down and printed for everyone to see, to read, to obey. But to be GOOD is hard, to go astray is easy. It's just like having an unpleasant chore to do. You keep on postponing it from one day to the next. Then suddenly the deadline arrives, and it Is too late. NO, FRANKLY I BELIEVE that if we had to live our lives over again we'd be exactly the same sort of humans that we are now—taking life as it comes, living from day to day, being' just as hateful or as loving; just as narrow-minded or as tolerant; just as cold-hearted or as sympathetic; just as cruel or as kindly as we are in this year of 1951 or as we have been in 1B53. 1943 or 1933. Life is somewhat like a big department store. All sorts of goods are carried in it. All grades of merchandise are sold : in it. There is high-priced stuff and low-priced stuff. And some stuff never gets above the bargain basement. . • ' But there is a difference. In life you arc both the buyer AND the seller. If the goods you have bought' to sell to the world are bargain-basement quality, they will never get above to the upper floors. There is no main-floor demand for shoddy merchandise.

So he invented one that featured time remaining instead of time elapsed. He came to New York last year to.see about marketing the watch, made a good deal for it and more or less incidentally wound up with a role of a "Studio One" TV play. The right people saw and liked his work and he got his chance in the Broadway play. PEOPLE WITH good memories will recall that Gypsy Rose Lee, the one-time eminent stripper of burlesque who turne'd literary, once wrote a play called "The .Naked Genius." This was back in 194.4 when Mike Todd produced the play wit'ii Joan Blondell in the leading role. It ran for 13 weeks on Broadway, hardly a rousing success. He advertised it as "guaranteed not to win the Pulitzer Prize." Weil, Miss Lcc has completely rewritten the work and is going to play in the new version herself, with her actrccss-sister, June Havoc, directing. She plans to test it with engagements in winter stock companies at Hamilton, Bermuda, Palm Beach and St. Petersburg, and will take it on an extended tour, if things look good. DATELINE: HOLLYWOOD By Aline , "HAMLET" is a success here, but this Shakespeare comes out strictly in Spanish by some "unknown" players in a theater off the beaten path. The actors belong to a Spanish theater repertory company from Madrid, headed by a reigning thespian of Barcelona, Alejandro Ulloa. For two weeks they have been playing to packed houses here, giving classical plays, such as "Cyrano de Bcrgcrnc" «entirely in Spanish. - ' j_ You won't hear of their gross receipts in variety, "and the movie studios, buy with cinemascope and ' Marilyn Monroe, never heard of the group. Yet to the Spanish-speaking population of 350,000 In this area. Ulloa is mightier than Tyrone Power. J'We even get .some people in the audience who can't understand Spanish but they seem to enjoy the plays, any\ray," Ulloa said. He'me through an interpreter, since none of the group speak Eng- Jish. . Today's Bible Verse FOR THE poor shall never cease put of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shait open thine hand wide' unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy ;needy, r in'thy land. Deuteronomy 15:11 "This is the first time in 24 years Spain has sent an actors' company to your country. The audiences are as nice here as in Spain." Next week, he added, the actors take off for Mexico. Central America and South America. They've already appeared in New York and Cuba. Ulloa's group is but one part of the Spanish Language entertainment that is a big but unsung business in the hometown of the movies. . Five theaters in the downtown area of Los Angeli-s show only Spanish language movies, mostly made ir. Mexico. There are another six neighborhood theaters in the suburbs. When dancers such as Jose Greco appear in town the concert hall rafters shake with "olc" and "bravo" • Frank Fouce, who books Spanish language films and plays here, imported 20 Mexican and Spanish film stars on personal appearance tours last year, in" eluding the late Jorge Ncgretc. Few Hollyvyood fans had heard of Negretc, but he received more attention than do Lana Turner or Rita Hayworth. After he died, 10,000 mourners filed past his coffin in the first two hours, and not even Rudolph Valentino's funeral can equal that record. One doctor who attended Negrete said "I've cared for many big Hollywood stars but I've never seen anything like the interest in Negrete. Why, his fans called us every few minutes, even from South America," --.,-,.-•• By HARMAN W. NICHOLS WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 —W— An Army colonel once said to me: "I wouldn't be surprised to see that work horse climb a telephone pole, repair the lines, roll down, call in a report and then go on plowing through the mud." The colonel was talking about the little old 'Jeep that helped the Allies come out ahead on World.War II. The "small horse" has been active in other fields recently. For example: In I>eru. they now arc using- the vehicles to pull defeated bulls from the fight rint. The Jeep was the first motor vehicle to. crash through the Jungles of Venezuela's Rio Negro region. The sight of the strange contraption pushing .its square nose- through the jungle startled the natives who never before had seen a fpur-whee]er.

And then there was the time, not long back, at an amusement park in Ohio when a roller coaster got stuck part way along its ups-and- downs route. Using the same tracks, a Jeep chugged to the rescue and block-and-tacklcd the coaster out of harm's way. In the badlands of the northwest, the bloodhounds don't have to leg- It any more.

Tlie one I like, though, is the story about the Jeep in Burma that was called into service to pull an elephant's aching "tooth." Elephant dentists had failed. A block and tackle didn't relieve the pachyderm. So a strong string was attached to the big animal's tusk. The Jeep revved it up. The lady elephant braced herself. And out came the hunk of ivory.

In 1798 he moved with his parents to Missouri, to which he returned in 3810 after studying near New Haven, Conn., and at the Transylvania university. He planted the first legal settlement of Anglo- Americans in Texas in 1822, obtaining confirmation of his grant when Mexico achieved independence. Until 1S28 he was executive, lawmaker, supreme jud^e and military commandant, and 1 kept a steady strcr.m of emigrants coming into Texas.

Folks of Fame—Guess The Name By BREW PEARSON WASHINGTON — It isn't being' advertised, but the Air Force will •send high - flying observation planes and guided missiles into the upper atmosphere for -a . closer- look at the planet Mars in June w,hen Mars will approach nearer to the earth:- than at -any time in the last '13. years. Flying-saucer enthusiasts claim that hte elusive saucers have always been.spotted in greater numbers,, when , Mars is. -close to the earth. The Air Force is skeptical about this, since no evidence 1 has been .uncovered linking flying saucers with' othei- planets. , However, astronomers, have noticed straight lines across the face -of Mars/leading down from the polar caps. These -could be canals, dug by intelligent beings to carry . irrigation water from the melting glaciers to warmer regions,, they admit. In any case, the Air Force will co-operate with scientists by sending up observation planes and guided- missiles for a closer look, while'.Mars is near the earth this spring. The missiles will be equipped with special instruments trained on Mars, and will be shot into the stratosphere. In addition, a scientific expedition-will journey to. Bloemfontein, South : Africa, which will be the. closest point on earth from which to observe our neighbor planet.' Meanwhile, the Air Force has compiled a special report, as yet unpublished, summing up its findings on flying saucers. This'ac- knowledges that 20 per cent of the flying-saucer reports "cannot be definitely associated with familiar things." . ' . . INSUFFICIENT DATA — "The difficulty in evaluating, these un- : explained reports," according to the Air Force document, "is based largely upon the insufficiency of accurate basic data such as size, .shape, composition, and flight characteristics of the objects . . . "The majority of reports of aerial phenomena have come from civilians," continued the document. "About eight per cent come from civil airlines pilots, while approximately 25 per cent are reported by military personnel. Reports have been received also from highly nualifieci scientists." The Air Force adds that it "has received many reports of unusual images of radarscopos," but points out that "it is fairly well established that some of these images are ground objects reflected from a layer of warm air above the earth. "No orders have been issued by the Air Defense Command to its fighter units to fire on unidentified aerial phenomena." states the flying-saucer report. "The Air Defense Command 1 is charged with air defense of the United States, : and its mission is to attack anything airborne which is known or appears to be hostile. This should not be interpreted ' to mean '. that our pilots will fire haphazardly on anything that flies," In an attempt to photograph a flying saucer, the Air Force will set up diffraction-grating cameras at various air towers and also use "a continuously operating Schmidt telescope equipped with a camera. This telescope has a wide aperture lens and is capable of covering a cone of 150 degrees or nearly the whole sky from horizon to horizon. This equipment will make it possible to get on a series of photographic plates a complete record of what happens in the sky at night." ( . IKE VS.
