    No. 9404, "Jingles, Jokes and Rhymes," by Edward M. Favor, is a Record that includes three verses and two choruses of a topical song written by Benjamin Hapgood Burt and sung with orchestra accompaniment.   Mr. Favor has made a great success with songs of this character, some of his Records in the past year being among the largest sellers we have had.   It is safe to predict that this Record will be near the top of the November list.   "Jingles, Jokes and Rhymes" treats Washington and his hatchet, Dowie and religion on the installment plan, and Jonah and the whale.
