"Don't Need To" Theory
In a recent debate at Reno Mr. James Jeffries tailed to convince
Mr. John Johnson.
Some seven or eight years ago Mr. Jeffries was the leading man in
bis line of work. Business was good and his •profits were big.
Having all the money he could handle at the time, he concluded
to take a rest.
To be sure, lie planned to get into the field again at the proper
Hut everything was rosy and there really seemed no good and
sufficient reason why he should spend so many hours a day keep
ing his muscles lithe and strong and his wind good and his heart
and nerves in trim.
Eventually the meeting with .Mr. Johnson was arranged. Mr.
Jeffries was still tolerably content with what he had done.
(Brother, a has-done is about as bad as a has-been.)
Mr. Jeffries did not care to stand up in the training ring and
punch and take punches. He did not see any necessity of practic
ing side-steps and feints and rushes.
He knew all about them. Why, seven years ago he had done all
of that he ever needed to do.
Mr. .Johnson did not overlook the boxing and the wrestling and
the clinching and the sidestepping, etc
As a result, Mr. Jeffries received Mr. Johnson's compliments on
the point of the jaw and his business career closed.
Advertising a business is the training of that business.
Advertising keeps a business healthy.
It tones up its liver, strengthens its biceps, steadies its heart and
keeps its nerves in order.
Once in a while a man decides that he is doing so much busi
ness that he can stop advertising for a while and run on mo
Momentum is the gradual process toward a full stop.
The momentum business is usually prematurely full-stopped by
the straight left jab of the well-trained competitor who finds his
opening in the fifteenth round.
If you want to stay in business stay in the advertising field.
No matter how much business you are doing, keep up the energy
that makes it.
You might as well cut off your legs because you are running
well in a foot race as to cut off your advertising because your busi
ness is too good.
You might as well tell the insurance man that you are so healthy
you will drop the policy lor a few years as to stop advertising be
cause the orders are piling up.
"Don't need to" is the eventual preliminary to "Can't do it."
The only man who doesn't need to advertise is the man who has
retired from business.
The only policy holder who doesn't need to pay his premiums is
Mr. Jeffries doesn't need to train any more. He is licked.
Interesting Methods Taught
in Northwestern Schools
Last Year.
A writer in a recent issue of the
St. Joseph, Mo., Fruit Grower in dis
cussing the increasing demand for
box-packed apples and consequently
of men and women capable of packing
the fruit scientifically, mentions sev
eral schools held last winter in the
northwest, among them the one at
North Yakima, commends their work,
and gives the following interesting
account of the work done at Walla
"The school at Walla W 7 alla was
held last January. Every morning
from 9 to 12 and in the afternoon
from 1 to 4, instruction was given in
the art of packing, and in the evening
papers treating of various phases of
horticultural work were read by ex
perts. The school lasted an entire
week, and certificates were to
all persons who atttained satisfactory
proficiency. No charge was made for
instruction, and the entire enterprise
was under auspices of C. L. WMt
ney, destirct fruit inspector, and the
commercial club, the members of
v. Inch recognized the need of having
plenty of trained help to handle th r
apple crop. In North Yakima a simi
lar school was held by the fruit ship
ping association, and the Y. M. C. A.
of North Yakima held another
school. This shows how packers are
being trained in the Northwest.
Experiment a Success.
'"A letter from the Fruit Grower's
correspondent at Walla Walla says
the school was in every way success
ful. Sixty-five persons took the
course of instruction, and of this
number 2 0 fine packers were secured
The work therefore, was well worth
while. Our correspondent continues:
"The course included instruction
in all styles of commercial packs.
The fruit was first graded as to size
and color, and the style of pack used
depended much upon the size of the
apples. The "square' or 'straight'
pack was used for such apples as
would pack straight across the box
and make a snug fit. The apples
must not fit too tightly, nor can there
be any slack. We try to avoid this
style of pack as much as possible,
because the fruit bruises more than
in other styles, but there are some
sizes which can be best packed in
straight style. We have only a few
sizes of straight-pack apples, as fol
•' 'Five-tier —This pack is five ap
ples wide, and it is also five apples
deep, with nine apples in a row
lengthwise of the box, making 22 5
apples to the box. This is the small
est apple packed for commercial pur
" 'Four-tier—Four apples wide,
four apples deep and nine long, or
144 apples to the box. Four-tier ap
ples are also packed four wide, four
deep and eight long, or 12 8 apples
to the box; and four wide, four deep
and seven long, or 112 apples to the
" 'Between these sizes we have
other packs used for various sizes.
The style of pack generally used is
variously known as 'broken,' 'lemon,'
'diamond' and 'diagonal' pack. The
latter name is more nearly correct,
since the name is derived from the
appearance of the pack and the man
ner of packing. In ranking this pack
an apple is placed in each corner
of the box nearest the packer and
another apple in the exact center be
tween these two; the next row con
sists of two apples placed in the
breaks between the three apples in
the first row. This system is follow
ed throughout the pack, three apples
jin one row, then two, then three, and
so on. One of the great advantages
of this style of pack is that each ap
jple in the second layer rests in the
! hollow space between the apples in
! the lower layer, and the pressure
I comes on four apples below, instead
|of on one, as in the straight pack.
Small Size Diagonal.
" 'The smallest size packed in the
diagonal style is packed in the three
two manner, giving five rows of ap
ples to the row, in each layer; there
are five layers in the box, making
200 apples in each box. The next
larger size is packed in the same
manner, except that each row con
tains only seven apples; thus there
are five rows, seven apples to the
row, in each layer, with five layers
to the box, or a total of 175 apples.
" 'The next size is packed as de
scribed in the foregoing, except that
each row does not end as above. In
the first described plan the rows
crosswise of the box alternate, three
apples in the first, two in the next,
and so on, the last of the crosswise
rows having two apples; the second
layer is then started with two apples
the next having three, and so on, so
that the apples in one layer rest in
the hollow spaces in the row below.
Now, the size which packs 163 ap
ples to the box starts with three
apples in the first row, then two, and
so on but the last row also has three
apples. Thus there are three long
rows in the top layer seven apples
long and two rows six apples long.
In the next layer the placing of the
apples reverses, and there are three
rows with six apples each, and two
with seven apples each. This style
of pack gives us three layers of 33
apples each, and two layers of 32
apples each, or 163 apples in the
" 'The four sizes just referred to
are between the five-tier straight and
the four-tier straight. Between the
four-tier straight and the three-tier
straight we have several sizes of
three and a half-tier apples. This
size is also diagonal packed, but in
stead of being packed three-two.
three-two, three-two, it is packed
two-two, two-two, two-two, by plac
ing the first apple in the corner of
the box and the second one to-thirds
of the way across; the next row is
placed in the breaks. The small size
of three and a half tier apples has
four rows six apples long in each
layer, with four layers to the box, or
96 apples to the box. The next size
is four rows five apples long or 80
apples to the box. The next size is
three-tier straight, or three apples
wide, three deep and five long, or
45 apples to the box.
Some Variations.
"Of course there are variations
from the directions here given, ow
ing to peculiarities of different kinds
of apples. At the apple-packing
school, however, these styles of packs
were taught and no others. Summing
up the various styles of pack taught
with number of apples to the box,
are as follows:
" 'Five-tier straght or square pack,
10 apples long, 250 apples to the
" 'Five-tier straight, nine long, 225
to the box.
" 'Four and a half-tier small di
agonal, nine long and 225 to box.
" 'Four and a half-tier small di
agonal, eight-nine long, 220 to box.
" 'Four and a half-tier medium di
agonal, seven long, 163 to box.
" 'Four-tier straight, nine long 144
to box.
" 'Four-tier straight, eight land,
128 to box.
" 'Four-tier straight, seven long,
112 to box.
" 'Three and a half-tier diagonal,
seven long, 112 to box.
" "Three and a half-tier diagonal,
six long, 112 to box.
"' 'Three and a half-tier diagonal,
six long, 96 to box.
" 'Three and a half-tier diagonal
five long, 80 to box.
" 'Three-tier straight, six long, 54
to box.
" 'Three-tier straight, five long, 45
to box.
" 'Great interest was shown in this
schol, and the affair will be continued
as an animal event." '
