AN OVERALL VIEW OF THE NARLOCK PROIECT in the upper left photo shows how the various enterprises are linked to one another naturally for

to 400 standees directly behind. Airconditioned for summer comfort, the alleys are used for league bowling Monday through Friday nights with two shifts nightly at 7 and 9 p.m.; there is, however, a special league on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, there are two morning shop leagues and two womenis leagues on different afternoons. Otherwise, weekday afternoons, Saturday, and Sunday are free for open bowling.

Although the bowling area itself includes no other special activities, such as billiard tables, there are, however, menls and ladies locker rooms, check room, rest rooms, a refreshment stand, and a special counter for the sale of bowling equipment.

lead directly to the cocktail lounge at one end and to the grill at the other. The lounge is unusually large for the population of the town but has been very successful with notably faithful attendance on the part of bowlers and theatre patrons. There are quite a number of stools at the bar itself, tables in the center, and a fair-sized stage for the presentation of nightly entertainment. The grill is large enough to accommodate a good crowd of diners at its counter stools and tables.

Thus, it may be seen that bowling alleys and theatres form an ideal partnership. The one complements the other nicely, and the operator is in a position to make an excellent profit from both. The combination of the two provides a ready answer to such questions as: What to do after bowling? What to do with the children during bowling? What to do if friends have seen the movie and you haveirt? What to do if there is a long line waiting for the movies? What to do if the theatre show is over, and the evening is only beginning? All of these

questions are satisfactorily answered when a theatre adjoins a bowling establishment.
