MEET ME UNDER THE MONEY TREE
The bouncy new song people
are humming or whistling at the New York World's Fair, "Meet
Me Under the Money Tree," is a sure sign they've been to
the American Express Pavilion. The catchy tune follows the taped
description of the Fair's various exhibits heard while viewing
the official scale model.
Writer-composer of "Meet
Me Under the Money Tree" is George J. Hanson, Director of
Public Relations for American Express. Mr. Hanson, whose avocation
is song-writing, is a graduate of the Chicago Musical College.
The song has been recorded
by the Bob Davis Orchestra and Chorus and issued on a private
label. On the reverse side is the Model Room's tour commentary.
the record is on sale at the souvenir counter of the Pavilion.
It is encased in a handsome jacket designed by Leonard Uline
of the company's Art Department. Explanatory jacket copy is by
Charles Wade of the Public Relations staff at 65 Broadway.

MEET ME UNDER THE MONEY
TREE There is no better way to recapture the
excitement of a major entertainment event than through the words
and music of a hit song. That's why, over the years, tunes from
Broadway shows and motion pictures, as well as fairs and expositions,
have enjoyed such widespread popularity. In 1904, the St. Louis
Exposition gave us a tune that soon became the nation's favorite:
"Meet Me In St. Louie, Louie, Meet Me At The Fair."
Today, "Meet Me Under The Money Tree," as recorded
by the Bob Davis Orchestra and singers promises to be the hit
song of the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. It may well be remembered
long after the Fair has become history. Inspiration for this
song is, of course, the fabulous American Express Money Tree
near the entrance to the Fairgrounds. The golden tree, standing
26 feet high, contains over one million dollars in spendable
United States and Foreign paper money and American Express Travelers
Cheques. It was designed as a symbol of the international economic
and cultural forces binding the peoples of all nations. "A
GUIDED TOUR OF THE FAIR". Side two of this high fidelity
