"When a driver gots into his car
he wanted to feel that when he
pushes the button tho engino is
going to start," remarked K. I
Drysdale, of tho Cadillac Motor Car
Company, recently. "There is not
much comfort in being compelled
to climb out again and crank tho
car by hand. A starter that is
not practically 100 per cent efficient
the ono that sometimes starts and
sometimes doesn't, is moro of an
aggravation than a convenience.
The motor car industry has
progressed so far in refinements that
add to mechanical cfhciency and to
comforts, that tho car whoso starter
suggests a question mark is under
a severe handicap. A few years ago
if a car ran a good distanco without
export attention, it accomplished
lot. Now certainty of operation in
a motor car is demanded just as it
is in any other well established pro
duct, and an automatio cranking
device must bo as efficient as the
roads should establish, publish and
maintain equal freight rates to all,
Why are we so fussy about railroad
rates? Yet we institute legal pro
ceedings to prevent tho Kellogg
Toasted Corn Flake Company from
treating all tho consumers of its
product alike. Tho Government
would be in bettor business if it
sought to compel equal treatment
If tho Department of Justico
sought to compel a manufacturer to
maintain established list prices by
interpreting tho Sherman Act to
mean that cut prices below tho
manufacturers' fixed and published
prices was conspiracy in restraint of
trade, which it actually is, great
good woulil bo accomplished in
promoting honesty in business.
Wo jailed and fined railroad
officials for cutting pricos on freight
Why is not tho same principle
applicable to products of manufac
turers in relation to tho consumers
of their goods.
Wo havo a right to demand equal
and fair treatment to all. Com
petition will still exist its broadest
and best sense and in tho most
beneficial form to all concerned.
If a manufacturer establishes and
publishes a consumers' prico ho
should bo compelled to maintain it,
and if a sale at less than list price
can be proven to have been made
by his dealers or agents, then all
sales for a period of say 30 days
prior to tho "cut prico sale" should
bo adjusted to that basis.
In such a condition it is plain
that published prices would bo
maintained. Tho confiding pur
chaser would not bo cheated as is
now largely tho practico. Purchases
could bo made with one-tenth tho
expenditure of time, talent, and
energy in "shopping" and negoti
ating, and all consumers would bo
treated alike and each get a square
It is obvious also that established
published prices would bo fixed at
their proper and legitimato point.
A published prico would mean tho
real actual value of tho article at
which it must sell on its merits in
competition with other like products.
Competition would bo transform
ed from "sharp and unscrupulous
business methods" to tho basis of
"quality merit and service.
