The following concerns participated in the Show: Cook Paint Varnish Co., Freed Wallpaper Paint Co., Hunn-Letton Paint Co., Kerr-Spalding Co., J. F. Kilby Co., Maxwell Fletcher Co., Midwest Wallpaper Paint Co., Genevieve Mosman, Inc., Muchenherger Bros., Max Riedel, John M. Surface Son, Timmons Wallpaper Paint Co., and the Muser Wallpaper Store. An amusing hit of publicity for the Show was obtained when a search for a one-armed paperhanger, which had been conducted in other cities without result, proved successful in Kansas City. In other cities Ben S. Bostick, representative of Roberts Everett As sociates, who managed the six Wall Paper Institute Shows, inserted ads in local papers. The following appeared in the Kansas City Star: Want to get in touch with a one- armed paperhanger. Address CI25 Star. On Monday activity in the room 011 the sixth floor of the Hotel came to a halt shortly before noon. Mr. Bostick, with the expression of one who has just seen a man bite a dog, turned from the telephone. "We've found him, a one-armed paperhanger!" he exclaimed, and hung up triumphantly. He had inserted similar advertisements in newspapers in Philadelphia, Bos ton, Buffalo, Cleveland, and Chicago. The Show needs a one-armer," he said. No one had answered the ad except persons who made fun of it f rom Kansas City, however, he re ceived this message: "I have only one arm and am a paperhanger of quite some experience," signed William Henry Ross, 2817 N.
