Sale Record;

0 This is the system that resulted from a contrast of the Payroll Forms used by all maior theatre circuits.

0 Designed to be filed in the ordinary letterhead size cabinet (BI/2 x11 inches) this form provides a permanent weekly record of the individual name, social security number, rate of pay, overtime pay, reasons for overtime, and deductions for all purposes. It also provides gross weekly totals of salaries, deductions, raises, etc.

One of the most important features is an individual siqned receipt by each employee, without their being

(I Year) able to see what any other for employee has earned.

0 There is no facet of the theatre field that fluctuates so rapidly with every turn in weather, temperature, school attendance and apposition as the drive-in. A properly kept line each day on your Business Analysis Spread-Sheet will provide a study of: (I) The day of the week and day of the month

complete with all weather influences; (2) The feature attraction complete with costs; (3) The total admis.

sions by car and by patron; and (4) The confection sales

by car and by patron.

. At the end of any one month, the complete picture

is there for analysis and studyp-and at the end of the same month of the following year, your headway or shortcomings are obvious. . Here is what might be termed "0 Monthly Boonice Statement."

Price: 50c for I3 sheets


. Uncle Sam requires that you keep careful, permanent records of all employee earnings and of all tax or other deductions, under penalty of fine or imprisonment. Here is the most simple theatre method. With ushers and other low-paid help, turnover is frequent so a salary book is inconv venient and bulky. Under this EXHIBITOR system, one 8V2 x II inch index card suffices for any one employee for one year, and each year is an entity in itself. The card of a tired or quit employee is set aside for tax return

and government report; and current cards, arranged alphabetically constitute the only

working set.

0 Here is a time-saving, accurate system you'll rave about!
