Arthur M. Kraus Meadowbrook Orchestra, 1922, Photograph

This celebrated orchestra has been playing at the Bancroft Hotel in Washington, D. C., but is now at the Ritz Hotel, Atlantic City, where they are continuing their record as one of the highest class dance orchestras of the Bast.

Mr. Kraus, the director, has informed us that his orchestra is fully supplied with Conn instruments and that they are giving the most satisfactory results. C. Doc. Brisbin, formerly of Sousa's Band, as trombonist, is with the orchestra and has often written us about the Conn instruments and their appreciation by the members of the combination.

J. V. Johnson, saxophonist, purchased a Conn C and Bass Saxophone recently and we regret our inability to give the names of all the members in this issue as they are not available; suffice it to state they are all Conn boosters.
