.4 To safeguard the public
jp against the misleading and false
statements :n 'ne advertising of
any phonograph with a fixed
jewel point, we wish to emphati
cally state that Victor Records
cannot be played on a phono-
graph equipped with a fixed
jewel point. Such phonographs
are only intended to play records
, with the up-and-down sound
grooves which is the same idea
that has been used for almost
forty years in the" manufac
ture of cylinder records.
You cannoFplay Victor Records on phonographs with a fixed
jewel point. ' However, byfemoving the jewel point reproducer and
substituting therefor a lateral-wave sound-box with a makeshift con
nection to the sound compartment, you would get a result that will
be only an imitation of the same record when played on a Victrola.
Unless you are fully acquainted with these facts there is a possi:
bility of your being imposed upon.
We have the complete line of Victrolas-;15 to 5300-and will gladly
demonstrate them for you. Come in and hear your favorite music, and
find out about our system of easy terms.
