GERALD PLAYED ON HIS HARP NEW YORK (UP)) - Gerald Goodman, who recently made his acting debut as a harp-playing nobleman in the Central Park production of "As You Like It" has had plenty of more solemn practice with that instrument. Goodman earned his way through college by playing the harp at funerals, after graduation continued his musical career at a funeral home. The giant provider of the older and familiar ra/or blade, the Gillette Company, with about 70 per cent of the American market, says it will enter the stainless steel blade contest in New York and Philadelphia next week and across the nation by October. Merchandising the new multiple shave item since February are Shick (subsidiary of Eversharp) and American Razor (Division of Philip Morris). Starting the whole thing on this side of the Atlantic was a British sword maker. Blades made by Wilkinson Sword Ltd., a hit in England, were first imported in March 1962 and sold by American outlets for its better known products, garden tools. Advertised by word of mouth, they caught on fast and wore hard to find. But American production methods may soon make them commonplace. Performance ultimately will be judged by the American males, each one doubtless convinced that his own chin is a special and peculiar problem. Price differentials, at least at the start of the contest, are these: Wilkinson's usually sell at five for 75 cents or 15 cents a. blade. Snick's and American razor's Personna double-edged blades are regularly priced at five for 79 cents. Gillette says it will retail its stainless steel blades at six for 89 cents, making them the cheapest at 14.83 cents a blade. The older, carbon steel, double- edged blades range from 3.5 cents to 6.9 cents a blade. Production costs are the secrets of the competing companies, but the stainless steel blades are more difficult and more expensive to make.
