are hot after the ticket scalping or

the way." If it isn't thousand of dol
lars will be lost each year by ticket
scalpers, with the indefinite and in
direct co-operation of the ticket
offices, generally manage to sell you
seats from 50 cents to $1 more than
you should pay for them.
Ticket scalpers make thousands

scalpers. It was also discovered that
good seats which had been "sold" for
days suddenly turned up at the box
office a few minutes before show
time rushed there by the scalpers in
the hope that they would be sold.
