merchandising, Mr. Vance's talk
was well spiced and illustrated with
many pointed anecdotes through
out which his listeners were kept in
a happy state of mind, receptive to
his more serious message, and un
conscious of the passing of time.

them, declaring styles to exist In
merchandising the same as in wear

merchants to keep in close tune

BUTTER In ftSs?3 by
"Butter is in a class by itself. It is one of
the most easily digestible of fats and un
doubtedly, when considering the oils and
fats dietetically, is the best source of Vita
min A," saysM. E. Jaffa, Emeritus Profes
sor of Nutrition, University of California.
Butter is indispensable in the diet of
young and old. It contains Vitamin A, the
growth promoting factor, also Vitamin D,
which aids in assimilation of the minerals
in the other foods you eat. Butter builds
bones, cells and tissues.

Four prime requisites for a good
salesperson were declared by Mr.
Vance to be ability, reliability, en
durance and action. A salesman
must have the capacity for doing
the job, he must have the Integrity
to carry on without constant super
vision, he must have the strength
with which to carry on, and he must
not be lazy. The first letters of the
words chosen by the speaker to de
fine these requisites, when placed in
order, form the word "area." For
the purpose of memorizing them,
he said, his listeners might visual

words, one on either side, within
which may be included personality,

How's Business?
Mr. H. T.Vance
here for the business institute, has asked this
question of chairmen at several meetings in line
with his work, attended recently.
"Not so good," has been the general answer.
Still he found that one of these men had exper
ienced an increase in the volume of his business
the month before over the corresponding period
the year previous. Others admitted their busi
ness was going along about the same.
They are probably a little more eager to learn of
