the Western Retail Lumber Dealers'
Association and the Lumbermen's Mu
Efficiency in salesmanship, the in
crease in the volume of business
through the increase in efficiency of
salesmanship and the creation of new
needs for lumber were the potent
points discussed at the morning and
afternoon sessions of the first day's
Assembled members turned aside
from their morning trade discussions
for a few moments to voice their ap
preciation of the Administration plan
for the creation of an adequate Na
tional defense. The need for prepared
ness as an economic necessity, a bar to
future National insult and a "defense
of those inherent rights of our citizen
ship" was urged by Rev. Peter Ather
ton Slmpkin, of Salt Lake City. The
policy of preparedness received in
dorsement from other speakers.
Women Dealers Speak ,
The afternoon programme was
unusual, in that upon it as the prin
cipal speake"s appeared two women,
one of them a retail lumber dealer,
Mrs. C. C. Bowerman, of Focatello,
In her address before the conference
members. Mrs. Bowerman declared that
a modern home, built by the band of
' man and generally planned by men,
was almost totally unlike the struc
ture that women preferred. She there
fore urged a closer co-operation be
tween the woman who was to have
the upkeep of the home and the retail
dealer who sold the lumber to the con
tractor, who followed the specifications
of the architect, who drew the plans
according to the tastes of man.
"How many of you men know what
a woman really wants in a home?"
queried Mrs. Bowerman. "And if you
do know, how are you ever going to
sell it to her?
"A woman wants a home to be mod
ern, attractive, comfortable, conven
ient, stepsaving and moderate-priced.
. And the homes that are represented
' in the plan books we have cover every
one of those necessary elements.
"But how is the woman going to

The shaping or tnai particular pi i
of the retail aeaier s dusidbw i mc

ideal home, woman, is one of the lines
along which greater efficiency was
urged by Mrs. sowerman.

and will have little competition," was
the advice of Mr. Porter.
"Quit advertising and talking about
substitutes, and advertise and talk of
the things made of lumber."
Better -Methods Urged.
Advocating better business methods
and more efficient methods, Mr. Porter
offered the following terse bits of ad
monition: "All building materials of whatsoever
kind handled by the retailer should
produce a profit.
"Profit should be earned by increas
ing volume and not made by raising
the price. "
"We need fewer Tetail lumber yards,
and better merchants; also, we need a
modern, uniform credit system. We
need aii honest advertising law in
every state, as well as an honest Fed
eral advertising law.
"We need a greater knowledge of
what to do with the goods after we
sell them to the consumer. We need
a greater knowledge of proper and
profitable publicity; of blue-printed
plans; of modern salesmanship.
"We need a uniform bookkeeping and
cost-accounting system, and we need
a law penalizing those who are pro
mulgating methods of unfair competi
tion. "We need more men to talk in asso
ciation meetings and not so many to
talk in the lobby of a hotel.
"Quit talking service, and prepare
to deliver and sell it.
"Work to build up the towns and
the farthing communities; encourage

"A modem lumber merchant should be
able to quote a price for all the lumber
and mill work necessary to complete a
building. Extra material at high prices
should be eliminated.
"Offer cash nrizea for the best ideas
on the uses of wood.
