    • Abstract:
      The article presents a discussion on bingo. It has been called keno, screeno and beano. Its most common name, bingo, was coined by a toy salesman in 1929. Organized bingo thrives today in church auditoriums, on military installations and at carnivals. The most avid fans are the matrons of the community. They stop playing when a fire or ambulance siren sounds, but as the wail diminishes, the game resumes in earnest.
