59c to $1.98
In gathering daily, weekly and monthly figure
information wr.h which to control your business and
increase your profit, you naturally use wide forms
which erm be bound for permanent record.
The easiest way to get that information, then, is to
have a machine that will accommodate unde forms as
well as ordinary roll paper.
That’s the way this new style Burroughs doubles
The twelve-inch carriage on this Burroughs Adding
Machine will accommodate all the forms used in the
average business These include forms used in making
business statements, summarizing receipts and dis
bursements, classifying expenses, distributing sales,
aktng inventory. preparing income tax reports and
By listing and adding these items directly on the
wide form you retain the itemized record without a
relisting of items or copying of totals.
Look around your office; see how many wide forms
you are using. Then estimate the time and money
you could save by hairing a wide carriage Burroughs
handle those forms. You'll find the Burroughs will
pay its own way.
Ask a Burroughs salesman to show you this new
style and explain why it will be to your advantage to
buy a new writ carriage Burroughs this month.
