An, athletic program has been ar

a, Rame of cage ball and a btvxln tour
nament. The gayie of cage 'ball will

one team to bo selected from the units
of the Lafactto division and the other
from the units In tho camp nrt a part
of the division. The Lross-country run
and the boxing tournament are open, to
every man In tho camp.
The boxing tournament will be the
tne blf event of tho day Kor some
months Tommy (llbbons, brother of the
phantom Mike, has been hero as the
boxing Instructor for the War Depart
ment Commission en Training Camp Ac
tivities, and he has developed Home real
scrappers. Then, too, there urp some
lads who were well known In the world
of pugilism beffre they were selected
fqr service In the army, and they, too,
will tako part
All of tho events except the run will
bo staged on Liberty Pluld. Examina
tions are being conducted today for can
didates for appointment to the United
States military academy at West 1'olnt
All of the lads who are taking the tests
are between tho ages of eighteen, and
twenty-one. The ten who make the" best
average will be given the nppolntment,
sb the quota from each training camp
Is limited to this number The examina
tions will not be completed until Sun
day. All sections of the United States are
represented among iho lads who com
pote the dramatic club of the Slxt
thlrd Infantry, which will produce at
nn enrly date a music.il comedy which
has been written ana adapted for them
by William P. Hochester, the director
of dramatics hero for tho War Depart
ment Commission on Training Camp
Activities. It Is tho hope of Mr. Roches
ter to produce the play at the Liberty
Theatre on the first evening after the
quarantine is lifted. Mr. Rochester Is
conducting a contest for a name for
the comedy. All members of the dra
mntic club are participating and the
winner will receive a 510 gold piece as a
for, while he does not buy to resell, ho
h4 to buy os low as possible ro as to
help reduce production costs. There
fore, he Is like the wholesale buyer
nlva)s looking for chances to buy sup
plies as! cheap as possible, ronrlstent
with value.
'There Is another class of specialty
btiver, hoMtver, vhoe altitude Is quite
different to the one Just discussed. That
Is the buvers of boukr, typewriters,
household novettlis and such like from
salesman who solicit their business from
bouse to house or olllee to otllce.
'They nre u'st'nlly asked to buy some
thing which they hail not considered
buying from a ralesnmn who calls with
out previous notification and whom they
do not know.
"Tilts attitude Is one of annoyance
perhaps, nl being Interrupted, suspicion
possibly of the salesman, no receptive
ness toward buying and a general an
tagonism or apathy toward the sales
man. ' There Is no general reason why they
should give tho salesman nny more time
than the scantest courtesy demands.
There Is no preconsldered reason for
listening to the salesman ns there Is with
wholesale or retail salesmen or that
first class of specialty salesmen we men
tioned. ,
"In brief, the retail buyer Is receptive
to buying; the whf.leale and one class
of specialty buver Is semlreeeptlve and
semlantagonlstlc, while the latter class
of specialty buyer Is antogonlstlc. This
Is. In a broad, gem rat wny, of course.
".N'ext week we wllf'conslder a number
of different kinds of sales so that we
may have a rlenr understanding of these
three divisions of salesmanship."

I'D BnTTF.U make a note of the things
.lethro Jones; told us at the salesman
ship class last Thursday.
Of course, I can't remember' all he
said, but the principal thing he said was
"Vou remember I said a few weeks
ago that there were three kinds of sales
manshipand I do net mean good, bad
and indifferent, although there Is a lot
of the latter kind so there are also
three kinds of salesmen and three kinds
of lawyers. '
"Now, as selling Is a mental opera
tion, we must look nt these various kinds
of stlllns from the mentnl angle, rather
than the phyg'cnl. In other words, we
must decide the kind of salesmanship
under which v nre operating by the
attitude of the'buyer toward the sales-
'We will now consider the mental
its attitude of the three kinds oT buvers
vhnlaala ratal! n ml TWX'lAlt V Slid wh.lt
decides the class to which they belong.
"Wholesale salesmanship is alwnys
selling goods for resale at a profit. It
matters not how many of an article are
scld, what It Is, the variety or price. If
the goods are sold for resalo at a preflt.
It Is tf wholesale profit.
"Now consider the buyer's attitude to
ward the salesman. The buyer makes
his living by buying gotds to sell again
Ills value to his business is his ability
(o buy goods that will sell quickly at a
good, profit. He Is. therefore, always on
the, lookout for goods which meet these
requirements, and that means that he" Is,
as a general rule, receptive to the sales
man's offer On tho ether hand, he has
such a steady, continual procession nt
salesmen coming to him that he can't
Blve them 'all the time they want. MaViy.
he knows, fiave goods of little valuej to
him J others waste his time over trlfl.es:
altogether he Is continually being urged
to buy.
"That tends to mafte him cautious he
Is on his guard all the time, except
with the salesman whose goods lip
knows are reliable and whom he per
sonally likes.' The combination of these
two feelings makes him willing to listen
to a new proposition, but quick to turn
down the salesman unle-s he shows
promptly that his goods are of use to
the buyer.
"Toucan readily see that In wholesale
salesmanship. Hits Is the general atti
tude of the buyer to the salesman. Ir
respective of what he .has to offer.
"The attitude of the retail buyer tow
ard the salesman Is very different, for,
as retail salesmanship Is always selling
goods to the customer for use or Con
sumption never for resale Hie cus
1 tomer who visits the store Id obviously
In a buying frame of mind He or she
a open tq suggestions to buy from the

."Now, specialty salesmanship Is sell-Ing-
goods for wee or consumption by

That was to restore the battle line west

When you buy, look for articles
that are a known quantity
that need no explanation. '
In hats this means
You are the judge of style but
it's our business to know quality.
We study hats from every angle
and we know that the man who
wears a Stetson makes no mistake.
He practices real economy because
Stetson hats give the maximum
.of service, combined with style that
retains- its expressiveness to the
last the quality holds it there.
The condition of our force is
this there are many new
absentees daily, and as yet
but few of the operators previ
ously affected have been able
to return to duty. The force
is smaller than at any pre
vious stage of the epidemic.
The situation continues so criti
cal that there is necessary, on .
the part of both the Public and
this Company, a strict observ
ance of the order of the Director
of Public Health and Charities
requiring the denial of service
when telephones are observed
to be used for the making of
unessential calls.
