Business .Manager ni
N. Y. Tribune At
tacks Loan Policy
Tells Sales Congress
Cabinet Should Be
“The people of America can take
their choice." said Rlchartl II l!
do, business manager of the N>w
York Tribune, speaking befor* the
World's Salesmanship congres-
Arcadia Tuesday night. "tl-y can
buy Liberty bonds and get something
for their money, or the> r - n
tbelr money in taxes and <i> nu<h
in*. They are going to r.iy * n ?
way, and there is no way out of it.
•‘We went into this war at tier
many's express wish, for w* ar '1
only country front which she ecu 1
expect to collect huge indemnities
We can now either put our money
ln bonds or save it up for Ger
“America has been made a jest j
of and shamed before all the world.,
The catch phrase of tbe east, 'Me
Adoo about nothing,’ shows what !
the people think of the way the loan
has been handled The I'nited ;
States has failed to stand back of
the administration because the ad
ministration does not know the
United States.
"We have been pumped full of
false information as to how well
the bonds were going, so everyone ,
has said. ‘Very well, then, we wnil
wait. There wiil be a loan at four ,
per cent or five per cent and we
will buy those bonds.' The east ha*
fallen down on this loan, and un- '
less the eastern bankers who handle
western money come to the rescue
It will not be fully subscribed.
“The most tremendous democracy .
has gone into the greatest manufac- *
taring business ever seen, the manu
facture of bonds. The manufactur
ing end is perfect, the sale*, end ,
rotten, but we will hold up the
miles end of the government if we |
have to reorganlxe the cabinet.
When we have such men as George
W. Perkins, Henry M. Davison and
Charles M. Schwab In cwr cabinet,
America can hope to do something
"The sales talent of the United
States is tbe greatest asset in the
nation. It has made us what wr
are. The American salesman is the
best on earth when his good* and
policy are right Think of what
Hawkins and Chalmers could do for
tbe government.
“But 110.000,000,000 bonds will be
sold. If necessary, and they will be
as well known as tbe Ford car.
"When asked what his plan was
tn regard to tbe bonds. Mr. McAdoo
looked aurprised and said, ‘Plan*?
There are no plans. Just open the
window and let them float out. They
blew ant— but only a few of them—
propelled by ' McAdoo s forced
draught; and the bankers and
the people generally smiled and laid
back, doing nothing
“The salesmen of the United
States mvist get back of the Liberty
bond It will be the most enlight
ened selffishness, for 90 per cent of
the money will go out in labor
channels, and when labor 'hrives
all business prospers. There has
never been such prosperity ip Can
ada and England as at the present
time ”
Walter B. Brinkhaui. i Duluth
delegate to the World Ssl'-smanshlp
Congress, replied to Mr Waldo's
flaying of the administration, declar

He declared ths* all newspapers

Knowledge that Detroit's most rep

the ehow is a grea* ’nerntive to the
buyers and when they find a car
that strikes their fanej. thev do
not hesitate to get in and drive it
The dealers have been working
steadily for the la*t three weeks
overhauling and reflnlshing cars to
sell at this show and , every day
