PORTERVILLE, Cal., Aug. 6.
Business houses of Porterville, prac
tically without exception, and all
those whose owners are members of
the Porterville Business Men's Asso
ciation, will go on a cash basis Sep
tpmhpr 1 This announcement has
been made by Leslie W. Laumeister,
the association secretary, tne meat
markets being the last to change, and
they havq gone a step further in cut

in' securing competent help, elimina
tion of the waste of bad credits, and
reduction of clerical force, are given
as some of the principal causes for
the proposed change.
The Cash System is not only be
ing adopted in Mohave County but
all through the country as well.
The same financial conditions
confront merchants elsewhere.
