ACTION: E-P & D-E Unit VOICES: 4 STOPS: 25 RANKS: 4 PIPES: 268 NOTES The original cost of the organ was $3,000.00, and it was dedicated on October 17, 1943. The 16' Bourdon extension of the 8' Flute is a different set of pipes from the 73 pipes of the 8'/4' Flute unit. They are also in poor condition with many splits which have been inadequately repaired with clear, silicon caulk. The other pipework appears to be from Durst Organ Supply. The quality of construction is good and scales are generous. The relay is electro-pneumatic and in need of replacement. The old phosphor bronze contacts are pitted and scored. In some cases they are near to breaking-off. Past organ technicians have removed the cover for servicing and neglected to put it back. This has resulted in a debilitating accumulation of dirt which results in intermittent 'dead' notes. The main chest is adequately constructed and appears to operate with direct-electric magnets. Some of the offset chests for larger pipes are electro-pneumatic. The Tremolo has been rendered inoperable at both the console and at the tremolo unit itself. The large regulator is not leaking any appreciable wind, but the leather is old and dry, and should probably be replaced. Sources: Eugene M. Nye compilation; James R.
