(U.R) — Charles S. Wyand. an authority on retail selling methods, says there are three things wront with retail business. They are: More customers suffer from an inferiority complex. Most clerks are indifferent, con-" descending and frequently down right insulting. Most employers who hire the clerks are self-satisfied and reluc tant to make progressive changes. Wyand, who is assistant to the president of Pennsylvania State College, told a West Chester Board of Trade meetings that trades peo ple should remember that the av er. ge customer is ‘‘a fairly in articulate person, with frustrations and aspirations and deepae-sied inferiority feelings, who is trying to buy self-esteem along with his other purchases." Othman Wants To Know Who ! Is Booing Who Over Bill By FREDERICK C. OTHMAN United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, June 21 —(U.R)— What I -want to know is, who's booing who? There can be no doubt that President Truman used some 5, 000 well-chosen words to boo Con gress for its labor bill. Some of these words were so fancy that George Maurer, the ordinarily im perturbable house 'reading clerk, stumbled over a number of them. Nor is there much argument about the booing by the union cav alcades, which converged upon Washington with signs chglked on the door3 of their sedans: ‘‘kill the slave labor bill.” That's known as booing in print. The urnon leaders parked their motorcars outisde and jam-packed the galleries of the houre. Four hundred and fourteen congress men—moie than I ever saw be fore in their sanctum at one time —found seats. And there was speaker Joe Mar tin. a prudent man, armed for trouble. One gavel wasn’t enough. He had two big wallopers. I guess maybe he was a little excited over the importance of the occasion, because he immediately pulley a blooper. Congress, as you know, isn t supposed to know what’s in a Presidential message until it is actually read. A number of law makers wanted to sound off; Mar tin squelched ’em. “I think the speeches might well be deferred until action on the veto,'- he said. Haw-haw-haw. went the law makers; the speaker flushed over letting the veto out of the basket, while the unionists sat there, puz zled over the merriment. Clerk Maurer oYgan to read the Presi dent’s message. He plowed i through it for 45 minutes, with never a stop for breath, or a drink of water. This reading took so long that a couple of Democrats, one from Texas and the other from Indiana, broke out a sack of peanuts. Made a fellow hungry, looking at ’em. Didn’t do the reading clerk any good, either, because it is diffi cult to face an audineee while it eats. When Maurer'd read the final wor.d, a few of the democrats clapped their hands. One tried a tentative cheer. And then, from the floor, rose a boo. The hand clappers nied to drown it out. Thf boos grew louder, and Speaker Martin whacked his gavels until they sounded like a cannonade. That brought silence. Then the speaker did a peculiar thing. He bawled out the visitors in the galleries. 1 swear they hadn’t uttered a peep, but Martirf said if they made any more noise ne u eject em. A Democrat from Michigan, j name of John Lesinski, said he didn't warn to vote on over-riding the veto until ne d had a chance to do a little arguing. The depub licans wove crying, “vote, vote, vote.” When nobody agreed with Lesinski, he suggested — despite the packed house—that no quorum was present. The Speaker sighed. He went through the motions of counting the customers. He said a quorum was on hand. Came then the his tory-making vote about wnich you have read. The house over-rode the president almost foui to one; moie o! his own Democrats voted aga.nst him than for him This, I understand, is known as booing by ballot. Now it's un to the Senate and I can hardly wait; I want to know who’s boo wins the argument. TODAY - MON. A HUNDRED Dk^r^RATE MEN AND A GIRL!
