COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, APRIL T, 1954 Super Supermarkets Prepare For Fabulous Electronic Future *>A Br JAMES FLOWERS MCA Staff Correspondent MEW TOEK — (NBA) — Don't be aurpriMd to find a carousel and a Machine spouting ready-to-eat hot dogs in 20 seconds the next tim« you go shopping in your favorite supermarket. For supermarket people are poised to set off a "second retail revolution" with vending machines, electronic devices and revolving counters in an effort to boost sales. These people sparked the first revolution with decentralization and self-service of food. They already have some revolutionary new techniques in action. In Pittsburgh, for instance, one food usper has installed an automatic vendor in the store window that dispenses doughnuts. It accounts for 25 per cent of the store's total doughnut sales, and 20 per cent of these sales come after the store is closed. Chances are you've had the grocery store door slammed in your face at closing time on more than one occasion. Well, the supermarkets of the future plan to solve this problem by installing batteries of! machines in the windows that will; sell when the store is closed, as New Drug Brings High Hopes For Control of Pesky Gout stock of any item on a vertically- certain poifit. This device should well as when it is open. Many solve the out-of-stock problem and stores are already selling ciga- j keep the customer's blood pressure rettes through window-type automatic vendors. Some progressive grocerymen are even toying with the idea of a store in which the merchandise will at a normal level. Unique, but listen.

And presto! ___ Her selected purchases are ready and totaled for her when she leaves Here's the way this futuramic food ner seat - means, record her selections. Such a television scheme may also automatically equip a store with a "private eye." For recently, in Cleveland, a demonstration was staged showing how closed-circuit TV could spot shoplifters. Actress Reports Diamond Theft NEW YORK <VP)—Actress June Havoc last night reported the theft of a $15,000 diamond ring from her dressing room. dream unravels: All items will be numbered and the shopper will be given a numbered card instead of a shopping basket. When the customer selects an item, the card will be punched. The punched card will be delivered at the check-out point- and run through an electric calculator and automatically checked. Then, the merchandise purchased as indicated on the punched card will be ready at the check-out point, or at a station in the parking lot. Electronic engineers have recently informed the gadget-happy supermarket people that they can see no serious technical problem in an "electric eye" installation that would flash a signal to the retail stockroom immediately when the With such a store as this she shouldn't have any trouble getting Johnny to "run down to the corner for a loaf of bread and a few things," Even television will get into the act. One shopping center is planning closed-circuit television cameras that will allow children to be seen by their parents from all stores in the center while the mother is shopping and the child is playing in a controlled playground. Some food retailers are even tinkering with the idea of displaying merchandise through the same technique. They have hopes that before very long the shopper will be able, through closed-circuit TV, to "see" every item in the store from a seat and, through some automtaic the ring in her room at the Hotel Pierre after her Sunday night show there. Since she was off Monday, the theft was not discovered until she came in last night. Miss Havoc did not know whether the ring was. insured, police said.

Birthdays Duplicated BLOOMINGTON. HI. (#) — Twin sons born Sunday to Mr. and Mrs. Dwight Williamson gave the couple a family of four sons — all born April 4. By FRANK CARET AP Science Reporter CHICAGO Ufi — The way may have been opened up towards even- of mankind's oldest and peskiest afflictions—the American College of Physicians (ACP) was told today. Dr. Elmer C. Bartete of Boston's Lahey Clinic said the possibility is suggested by promising results with a relatively new drug called "Benemid" although he did not say that that particular substance would be the final answer. He told the ACP k s annual meeting that there still are "many problems" associated with the use of the drug—chief of which is the fact that sometimes a patient may suffer recurring attacks of his gout during periods up to nine months after Benemid treatment is begun. But he declared that "most cases" are eventually brought under control by the substance, sometimes in combination with other medicines. Improvement Sought The clear implication of his re- complete and relatively easy control of gout might come from im- from 12 to 30 months and of these 39 are considered to have obtained "satisfactory" results. Many of the cases were severe ones which had not responded to any previous treatment, he said. On the other side of the ledger, Bartels said, some other people had to discontinue taking the drug because of "undesirable side effects."

The drug works by drawing troublesome uric acid from the gouty tissues. Bartels told the meeting: "Those interested in gout have been waiting patiently for the dis covery of a substance that would accomplish for gout what insulin has so brilliantly done for diabetes —that is, effectively control gou regardless of the severity of the disease. "Fortunately, this era appears to be at hand with the discovery of Benemid, .and so a bright new chapter on gout is now being her aided."
