Edison is responsible for developing the early electric distribution which was DC. He was very entrenched in his DC business and wasn't initially interested in AC. Much of the credit for development of AC in its' distribution goes to Samuel Insull who was initially Edison's secretary and was later sent to Chicago to manage the local electric utility. Insull became very interested in AC because he realized the advantage in AC for distribution of AC of long distances, a failing of DC which could was limited to the distance it could be distributed from the power house. Most people know Insull for his electric railway interests (Chicago elevated railways, North Shore & South Shore Lines and the Chicago Aurora & Elgin among them) and the financial disaster that befell his utilities empire during the depression. The very first successful AC distribution line was between Lake Bluff and Libertyville and I suspect this line probably ran along the North Shore right of way. For those he believe I am in error check out Sam Insull, he was a very interesting individual. Please forgive the excursion off topic.   sincerely,   Jon C. Habermaas

(back) Subject: Re: Leon Barry From: "Jon C. Habermaas" <opus1100@ameritech.net> Date: Wed, 10 Feb 1999 18:28:34 -0600   Hi Mary,   I'm not familiar with Barron Smith but have several Leon Barry albums. They turn up occasionally at used record outlets. Leon made three albums titled "Glockenspiel Traps and Plenty of Pipes" VOL I, II, III and also an album called "Beast in the Basement" on his home organ. There albums were produced by Replica Records, a label which has been gone for years. He also recorded for Audio Fidelity with an album called "Leon Berry at the Giant WurliTzer Pipe Organ, Hub Rink, Chicago. Leon passed away several years ago, the Hub Organ is gone, but the Beast in the Basement survives just as Leon left it.   hope this helps,   regards,   Jon C.

On my web page, I have linked with a service that will supply you with supermarket coupons for your area. Just click the linkage, enter you zip code in the appropriate place, the store you shop at from the list, and it will provide you with any available coupons for your area.   If you check with this each time you shop, it should save you some money on food.

From: RSiegel920@aol.com Date: Wed, 10 Feb 1999 20:15:38 EST   In a message dated 2/10/99 10:20:31 AM Central Standard Time, opus1100@ameritech.net writes:   << For those he believe I am in error check out Sam Insull, he was a very interesting individual. >> FYIW- Insull was also responsible for building the Civic Opera Building in Chicago (which directly caused the demise of the acoustically superior but older Auditorium Theater. ) Legend has it that the "chair" shaped profile of the rear of the building facing the Chicago river was Insull's way of showing just what he thought was the proper "face" to show to the less than admiring city fathers occupying buildings to the east!

(back) Subject: Wurlitzer Opus 1732 From: "Jason D. Comet" <bombarde8@juno.com> Date: Wed, 10 Feb 1999 09:24:31 -0500   If anybody has got any information on the Wurlitzer Opus 1732, please let me know. It is a historic Watertown Theatre Organ that was in the late Avon Theatre that was torn down. I looked up the theatreorgans.com opus list and found it there, but they couldn't give me anymore information than the *present* location, Wiring Schedule, and year shipped.   Here is the information that I received today:   Wurlitzer Opus 1732 Original location: Avon Theatre Watertown, NY Present location: Santa Clara, CA Moved 6 or seven times between Avon and present Style F 3M Wiring Schedule: 602 Original Shipping Date: 9-17-27   After being removed from the Avon, the wiring schedule changed to 735(?). Then at the second to last move, the wiring schedule completely disappeared. I assume that it might have been *updated* to a Solid State Relay system. If anybody knows where I could find a Wiring Schedule 602, please let me know.   Many people here in Watertown, including myself, would like to see this insturment brought back home and playing again. Then it will be the *ONLY* theatre organ in Watertown (besides my grandfathers electric Conn)   Please forward this to other lists if you possibly can and let me know which ones.   Thank You Greatly, Jason Comet bombarde8@juno.com   ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

When you turn the keyswitch on and the blowers start drawing their current, the lights dim down to almost nothing. Now you can't tell me that the blowers don't draw that much power, David. But, the lights come back up. The entire church goes dim every time you turn it on. It's fun turning it on when the renovators are in the Choir Room using their power tools. (The Choir Room is being renovated now)   I think that the blowers run on more than 220vac. I think there is another step larger in voltage, but I could be wrong!     Jason Comet Junior in High School bombarde8@juno.com Begining Driver - Get off the streets! |\ Organist/Choir Director | | 2/13 C.
