nr O purchase a NEW EDISON is not an ex
penditure: it's an investment. It means
evenings filled with enjoyment oC the world's
host music RE-CREATED so perfectly as to be
indistinguishable from the interpretation of the
living ariists. And it menns evenings at home
where you don't spend a cent. To own The
New Edison means not only more happiness but
more money in the bank.
