Interesting Notes of Harold
and News Advertisers, Their
Products and Activities
Employes of the Scars store In
this city were today informed
that they will participate In the
contribution of the company to
the savings and profit sharing
pension fund of Scars, Roebuck
and company employes which
amounts to $4,138,129 for the
fiscal year 1940.
This sum represents the larg
est contribution ever made by
Scars in the 25 years of the
fund's existence. It Includes five
per cent of the company's 1940
net profits before taxes as well
as a special contribution of $1.
000.000. As explained by Manager
T. R. Thorn psen, a regular em
ploye of the company becomes
eligible for fund membership af
ter a year of service. He then
is given the right to deposit five
per cent of his salary In the fund.
No employe may deposit more
than $280 a year, however. Each
year, Sears, Roebuck and com
pany contributes a sum equal to
five per cent of its net profit.
The combined amount is Invest
ed, from time to time, in Sears
The attractiveness of the
plan is attested by the fact thot
over BS per cent of eligible em
ployes are members of tho fund,"
said Thompsen.
In addition, during 1940, Sours
paid out $1894.682 for such le
gally imposed employe benefits
as workpien's compensation In
surance, unemployment compen
sation taxes and federal old age
benefit taxes. This figure rep
resents an (ncrease of $836,172
over 1939.
