Need Help Identifying Wurlitzer 165 Tunes

already identified all the rest on the recordings.
I've written out the tunes in standard notation, and I'd be happy to
email them to anyone who might be able to help with the identification
(obviously you must be able to read music!). In most cases I have
notated both the intro from the tune and at least one of the main

me an email. I appreciate your help!

[ Unless the unidentified tunes are some of the eleven never-yet-
[ identified tunes on 165 rolls (which can be heard here on my
[ Wurlitzer 165 roll website: http://wurlitzer-rolls.com/sounds.html),
[ all 165 tunes have been identified. So it is just a matter of
[ hearing the melodies to tell you what the tune titles are. Can you
[ provide MP3 or WMA files of the five tunes?
