"Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me, anyone else Urban renewal, fast food restaurants, television and portable tape players have sounded the death knell for a musical institution, the Wur- htzer jukebox The Wurlitzer Co., which' also makes organs and pianos said this week it is going, out of the jukebox business, although it will continue to make replacement parts for six years. A company spokesman said the firm foresees an increas- ingly declining market ahead as North America turns to- ward suburbia and farther away from small-town and city life, where the jukebox was a mainstay While not the largest maker of jukeboxes today, Wurlitzer possibly is the most famous Its advertisementsu "Gee- dad, its a were at- tached to piano and organ sales, but the phrase also MANSFIELD GUITARS 1 73 Off List Acoustics, Electrics and Basses While Stock Lasts HILDER'S TV MUSIC 310-9tl SI.

From the time it made its first machine in 1934 until now, Wurlitzer has manufac- tured more than "coin- operated phonographs." THEY'VE CHANGED The first models had heav- ily-carved cabinets of wood, and contained only 10 records at a nickel a play. The records were 78s. The latest models, with intricate lighting systems, are capable of gul- ping whole dollars for 10 plays, and have more than 200 selections. The Wurlitzer jukebox was part of an American era that now is regarded with some- thing of nostalgia, although other companies, such as See- burg Co., continue to make the machines and believe there is a market for them. But urban renewal is in- creasingly destroying neigh- borhood taverns, malt shops and candy stores, bringing to an end the environment of the jukebox, says A. D. Palmer, advertising director for the Wurlitzer jukebox division. "We find increasingly fewer places to put he said Wednesday. Television keeps people at home and kids can carry their music around with them now that they've got portable tape cassettes and transistorized radios." Wurlitzer will continue to manufacture jukeboxes in Germany, but Ago Koerv. company treasurer, said with exchange rates being the way they are. it is unlikely it would be economical to import the machines into the United States. The company said it ex- pects to lose million this year as a result of winding up the jukebox operations. About 400 employees at its jukebox plant in North Tonawanda, N Y.. will be put out of work. NBC movie focuses on U.S. deserter LOS ANGELES (AP) Le- vinson and Link. It sounds like a successful law firm. Actually, they are partners in crime. Richard Levinson and Wil- liam Link, writing partners since Grade 7 in Philadelphia, are two of the most successful mystery writers and producers in television The shows they have created include Columbo, McCloud, Mannix, Tenafly and The Psychiatrist. But it is in the field of the television movie that they have done their most important work. My Sweet Charlie, first shown on NBC in 1970, was a television landmark. It dealt with race prejudice and was the first TV movie to win prestige and acclaim. Last year, That Certain Summer was the first TV movie to deal forthrightly with homo- sexuality. Their most controversial film to date, The Execution of Private Slovik, will be seen this week on NBC Wednesday Night at the Movies. Pte. Eddie Slovik was exe- cuted in 1944 in France by a firing squad for desertion. He was the only United States soldier executed for desertion since the Civil War. Martin Sheen is cast as Slo- vik, who seems more a victim of circumstances than anything else. The military authorities apparently decided that too many men were deserting and wanted to make an example of someone. Slovik made a written con- fession that he had deserted and refused to withdraw it when given the opportunity. He turned down every chance to return to his outfit and have the charges dropped. Reluctantly, Gen. Dwight Eisenhower authorized his New Olympic stamps due OTTAWA (CP) The second issue of special Olympic stamps will be March 22, Postmaster General Andre Ouellet an- nounced today. The four eight-cent stamps depict participation in summer activities behind an image of the Olympic symbol. A total of 60 million stamps will be issued, Mr. Ouellet said in a news release. execution. The story of Slovik's execu- tion lay buried in the Pentagon files for eight years until novelist William Bradford dug it out. Not even Slovik's wife knew he had been executed. The 2Vz-hour movie was filmed in 25 days, a luxurious amount of time by television standards, in Canada and near Los Angeles. Canada was se- lected for its snowy weather and its resemblance to France in certain areas. Aside from the technical' complexities of the film, which has 71 speaking parts and 80 locations, they said the most difficult thing was keeping it in the historical perspective "of 1944 without 1974 hindsight. Levinson said: "We didn't want to lake any easy shots at people. Eddie Slovik did desert Some people will think he deserved to be shot Others will be appalled. "We have our own opinion, but it's not in the film. Our opinion is that he shouldn't have been shot. We tried to show this as an event and not from our own opinions."
