cruises have demonstrated that ex

writes from Japan, where the lt)2!>
World Cruise on the ‘ Belgenland ’

Oregon First on Coast to
Adopt New Slide System
A new process in lantern slides
was used for I be first time at. the

A Philosopher and
A President Agree
Over 2,000 years ago a philosopher remOtitd, HNo
one has a good market for bad merchandisewhich
agrees with a statement once made by former Presi
dent Wilson that, ’’you cannot sell a thing that is not
as represented without the customer finding it out."
That is why we don’t carry ”seconds” or cheap,
shoddy goods. It wouldn’t pay to deceive our cus
tomers. We promise them, ’’quality— always at a
saving” and we believe that Quality alone decides
whether a price is economical.
