TO THE PUBLIC
Feeling that some explanation is due to the
public concerning the unprecedented scarcity of
Victrolas and Victor Records, we desire to make
the following statement:
The above condition is due, as all such condi
tions must primarily be due, to the unquestioned
popularity of Victor products. It is also due to
the fact that so long as the United States was at
war we believed our paramount duty lay in assist
ing the Government in the prosecution of the war
to the fullest extent of our abilities; our facilities
had been freely offered and accepted.
Immediately upon the signing of the armistice
and our release from the Government obligations,
we took all necessary steps to insure the earliest
possible return to an increased output of V ictor
products, but in the interim we would bespeak for
Victor dealers and for ourselves some measure
of consideration which we believe will be accorded
by every American.
