Grassgreen’s Albanians fin- ished fourth and is entitled to $250. Fifth prize, worth $150, goes to Huber’s Winnipeg. Both Chicago and Winnipeg also shared in the prize money for 52-week’s total delivery. Of the five winners in the 1938-39 season’s short subjects delivery contest only Clark’s Oklahomans finished in the money in the same department during the 1938 Kent Drive. On that occasion the Oilers finished first, topping Seattle, Minne- apolis and Des Moines. Chicago, Charlotte and Okla- homa City each wound up the K-6 season with an accumulated 52-week’s short subjects deliv- ery in excess of quota for that period. Chicago, in the final week, de- livered five times its quota! At the end of the 51st week the Chi- cagoans ranked fifth, Oklahoma City first, Charlotte second, Win- nipeg third and Albany fourth.
