Notes: The Orchestral Strings is a separate string organ of five ranks of various scales and voicing tuned as a large celeste and in its own box, which is controlled automatically by the swell shoe of the manual on which the strings are drawn.  If drawn on two or more manuals at the same time, the Swell Organ shoe will control this box.  The tremolo of each manual will control its tremolo.

The November 1918 issue of TAO further states that "wind is supplied by a 50 hp Orgoblo."
