Revolvkg Musical Tree Stand Nbvelty At Gerken ' s Store Almost lost in the large stock of home-nlade candies that , abound in Gerken ' s C onfectionery and Delica- tessen store, on , Hawkins avenue , Lake Ronkonkoma , is a 20-year-old novelty that is causing * much comment. It is a musical Christmas tree stand , hold- ing . the sturdy, decorated., tree that is the center ' of the Gerken window and store display. _ . The . tree : stand , which measures about 15 inche s in diameter , is own- ed by.:William Callmeyer , predecessor of Mr. Gerken . in the delicatessen portion of the business. Mr. Call- meyer , whose , home adjoins the Ger- ken: establishment , purchased the tree stand in 1918. It is wound with a key and has a device which regulates the :-speed at which the tree revolves. . While: the tree is going around , the stand ; plays- ., two Christmas hymns , oneifeeing ^Silent Night , Holy Night; \ This nickel-plated stand was -made for -use with unlighted trees , unless its ' owner preferred to risk the use of 'candles. . It was impractical to use electric lights , because the con- stant . turnin g of the tree would twist the ' . ' -wires. ' During; the years that he used the tree \ 7 .stand , ' - ' Mr-v . Callmeyer experii- mented . ' with electric lights; on the tree . by using ; i dry batteries , tied to the tree.' This eliminated the vise of wires- leading ' away from the stand. Mr. ' .Callmeyer . has had a- number of offers for the stand , which is • be- lieved to be a rarity today, but he has turned them \down because of the s entiment he .attaches to it. aar-arwa-r-vv w-v-^r-v-a-r- ** ¦vw-^-vw-vv-ar-'ir-* Eed^ Cross; Rcill- Call . .
