Hammond Organ

In 1934, the first pipeless organ was patented by Laurens Hammond (No. 1,956,350). It used no vibrating parts, neither pipes nor reeds. It had a 37-note upper manual, 68-note lower manual and a 20-note pedalboard. His application only a few months earlier (19 Jan 1934) was expedited to help create jobs during the Depression. He did not call his "Electrical Musical Instrument" an "organ" until his third patent (1939). In fact, in 1936, he was prosecuted by the FTC (but won) for advertising his instrument as an "organ." Manufactured by the Hammond Clock Co., Chicago, Ill, it was first shown at the Industrial Exposition in New York City, NY, on 15 Apr 1935. Overall, Hammond had 110 patents issued or assigned to him.«

A blond and her blond boyfrien...

A blond and her blond boyfriend went for a walk along the river. The blond walked across alone on a wooden bridge. After crossing the river, the bridge fell down. She called across to her blond boyfriend telling him that she couldn't get back.
He yelled in response, "Wait until dark, and I will shine my flash light across the river. Get on the light beam and walk back."
She replied, "No, I'll get half way across the river, and you will turn the light off on me!"
