New Organ Arrives
For Folly Theatre
A carload of harmony arrived in
Algiers a few days ago consigned to
Foto's' Folly Theatre. This is the
long-looked for organ that has been
on its way many months. The organ
was first ordered about the time the
United States entered in the World
War, but after these many months it
has finally reached its desination,
and it will have the reputation of
being one of the largest pipe organs
in the entire south. It cost over
$10,000, and it has every known at
tachment with which pipe organs are
equipped. The mechanics now ip
stalling the organ will complete their
work in about three weLs, when it
will be ready to furnish music to
the movie fans of the Folly theatre.
