This article offers information on the history of advertising in the U.S. The production picture brightened considerably in May 1945 for makers of juke boxes and slot, pinball, coin and vending machines as the government gave them one of its first go ahead signals to resume regular peacetime production as soon as materials and manpower supply permit. Prospects for expansion are considered great. Juke boxes are considered extremely important to Decca, Victor and other makers of phonograph records. Half of all records produced each year are used in juke boxes.
