I've Got Your Number: (Brand New) A dynamite contest uptune destined to be a classic if some talented quartet will take on the tricky harmonic challenges. Arrangement $100. No per copy fee for quartets, and the fee for choruses is $1.00 per copy.

I Won't Tell A Soul I Love You: (Brand New) A heart-rending contest ballad that requires a bass singer to feel comfortable on an occasional low D. Arrangement $100. No per copy fee for quartets and the fee for choruses is $1.00 per copy.
