Good morning my friends.
This record comes to you through
the Sales Talk Transcription Co. Inc.
Your speaker,
the mechanical salesman.
May I introduce
Mr. J. Willacomb Bellows,
inventor of the Bellows
Feeding Machine,
a practical device which
automatically feeds your men at work.
Don't stop for lunch.
Be ahead of your competitor.
The Bellows feeding machine
will eliminate the lunch hour,
increase your production
and decrease your overhead.
Allow us to point out some of the
features of this wonderful machine.
Its beautiful aerodynamic
streamlined body,
its smoothness of action made silent
by electroporous metal ball bearings.
Let us acquaint you
with our automaton soup plate,
its compressed air blower,
no breath necessary,
no energy required to cool the soup.
Notice the revolving plate
with the automatic food pusher.
Observe our countershaft
double-knee action cornfeeder,
with its synchronized transmission,
which enables you to shift gears
by the mere tip of the tongue.
Then there is the hydrocompressed
sterilized mouth wiper.
Its factors of control insure
against spots on the shirt front.
These are but a few
of the delightful features
of the Bellows Feeding Machine.
Let us demonstrate with a worker.
Actions speak louder than words.
to keep ahead of your competitor,
you cannot ignore the importance
of the Bellows Feeding Machine.
