I BUSINESS took me to
j Scranton, Pa., during the
week of May 12-17, and
while there I was fortunate
in meeting forty-seven men who
represent the IRON DIVISION
of iWilson and Company man
agers f branches and sales
men. It was, during this week
that the people $f the Keystone
State bubbled over with en
thusiasm and a wonderful wel
come to the men of the IRON
VANIA who had returned from
France, after haying performed
inw magnificent fashion at a
rreat sacrifice of life, but show
ing that indomitable courage
and will power which are at
tributes of the men of rugged
character and physique that the
hills of Northern Pennsylvania
raise. '. . -
I wouldn't have missed this unex
pected meeting ot these forty-seven
men for anything. Heretofore my
knowledge 'of the "Wilson and Com
pany organization, has been con
fined largely to-- personal contact
with the rankand file of workers in
the Chicago and'fnyw Tork plants.
It had not been my pleasure to meet
sales representatives in a convention
of their own. This" convention of
the managers of branches and salea-
men of Wilson and -Company in the
Northeastern ItoWcSLof Pennsyl
Tania, had. beecilainrfta to discuss
ways and Tneanjr tojKiifter promote
the sale of the'ffiB-CeVtifted food
products suchJthyanoked meats,
boiled hams, s3uaage and canned
fruits, vegetables and "meats.
It was my privilege to sit in their
meeting and I am very glad I had
the opportunity,, .hecause these men
have got it In Ibeif souls to pro
mote the interests of their Chief,
Thomas E. Wilson, who has put in
telligence and-integrity into food
products, somethings jthat has given
his name and his products a reputa
tion which permits his sales organ
.tetions in all sections of the country
-to sell Wilson Certified Brands un
der their good, name an quality,
without necessitating salesmen to
tarry sampled s&
I heard a new phqise used by one
' of the branchtoaaagers that I think
is A "corker arid i am passing It
t along to you because you will ap
- predate what it -means for an or
"ganization to -e backed up by men
'who are as proud of his achieve
"ments in food-productions as ifjthey
1 owned the business" "themselves.
This is what he said:
Isn't it 'great, boysr to be associ
ated with an organization In which
to -as great an 'extentjH? the Certified
products which we have" the pleasure
of selling? You can't beat that, boys,
fart you?"
Did. you ever hear before the expres
sion "Certified Confidence?" Do you
appreciate what 'it means? How
many friends have you got on your
list in whom you have "certified
Answering that question for your
selves, you know what it means then,
when I tell you that this Northeast
ern Division of Pennsylvania branch
workers and salesmen, as well as the
other divisions of salesmen in all
sections of the country a&vm "cer
tified Confidence" In Thomas E. Wil
son, and his .food products.
The Chairman -ot the meeting made
these remarks:
"With the splendid backing that our
sales people are getting from Mr.
Wilson and his family of executives
and his associate workers In the
various plants, we must pull together
and see to It that Wilson products
may be found on sale on the shelves
of every food merchant in our ter
ritory Vyjlson products must be
liberally distributed among dealers
so that the consumer will have no
difficulty in buying them. We must
develop and cultivate the trade of
the small dealer. We must not over
look the fact that the small dealer
is the large dealer of next year.
Banded together as we are no power
on earth -can hold us back from
making & "place for our Company and
ourselves in the business world. We
know that the policy of the busi
ness Is sound to the core and the
fact that our motto "The Wilson
Label Protects Your Table" Insures
a Bquare deal for all, there is no
reason why dealers everywhere
should not carry a full line of Wil
son and Company products, thus
enabling us to establish a wonder
'ul chain of dealers handling Certi
fied foods from one end of the coun
try to the other, and through these
dealers establishing a splendid rela
jonship between the consumers and
our organization. We have confidence
, in our Company and in its methods
we have confidence In ourselves and
with these three fundamentals we
cannot fail to build a business that
will endure in honor and service
The general consensus of opinion
among the forty-seven representing
the IRON DIVISION of Wilson and
Company in Northeastern Pennsyl
vania, is that it is an honor to be
on the Wilson and Company payroll,
and that it gives them an oppor
tunity to satisfy their own ambition
in life. They say they like to be
identified with an organization which
stands for Idealism and CERTIFIED
PRACTICE in business.
One man, in speaking- of Wilson and
Company's Certified Boiled Hams,
"Boys, if we have any difficulty In
persuading: any dealer to buy Wilson
and Company's Certified Boiled Hams
from u. it's our own fault. Why,
do" you know that we made a recent
test of how this ham cuts up and we
discovered that there was only one
ounce of waste In the whole bam. We
not; only certify as to the quality, but
we certify to economy in use."
The pride that Wilson and Company
workers feel In their organization
hasn't a chance on earth of ever hav
ing a fall because It Is too genuine
and too deep rooted and so entirely
justified. Sincerely yours, "William C Freeman.
BALTIMORE. June 6. Trapped In
a secluded spot with another man's
wife near Windsor Hills yesterday
afternoon, William H. Smith, forty
eight years old, who gave his address
as Tobln. Baltimore county, was At
tacked and almost beaten to death
by the. enraged husband of the wom
an, who fled after she, too, had been
struck by her husband.
The . woman was Mrs. Blanche
Crockett, thirty-two yars old, and
tha husband who caught her with
Smith was Edgar Crockett, thirty
four years old, of Hampden. The most
Temarkable feature about the attaeK
was the fact, as explained by Crockett,
that after he had overpowered .he
companion of his wife be was about
to crush the man's skull with a stone,
when he suddenly abhorred the
thought of murder and for several
minutes watched" Smith's. prostrate
form on the ground.
"Smith got up."- said Crockett,
"and I said to him: 'You come go
with trie or one of, us will die now.'
Smith said he would go with me and
asked ma where I was going to take
Half an hour later, Crockett, who
is a powerful man weighing cli5o
to 225 pounds, guided Smith up the
steps of the Central Police Station.
A formal charge of disorderly con
duct was entered against Smith and
.a short time later he was arraigned
before Justice Dawkins, holding to
the rail for support.
"I was suspicious of my wife's be
havior yesterday." said Crockett,
"and when she told me that she was
going downtown to pay a gas bill I
told her I would make the trip for
her. She refused, and her preoccu
pied attitude indicated to me that
something was wrong. When she
left the house I decided to trail her.
She. boarded a car and alighted at
Franklin and Howard streets. I ar
rived at the corner on the next car
Just as she boarded another car.
"I 'followed on the next jar and at
Walbrook junction I received infor
mation that a woman answering the
description of my wife had boarded
the jerkwater car. I followed. A
short distance from the- car line I
heard two people talking faintly, but'
I couldfnot see them "because of a
hedge. I heard niy wife's voice. I
crept around until I found an open
ing in the hedge and jumped through
"There I found them, arid as my
wife saw me she screamedand jump
ed up. I slapped her aside, and as
the man got to -his feet? I knocked
him down."
