THE JEWISH MONITOR Page Eleven Afraid to Face Your Banker ? Slowly the old man entered the bank and stood for a moment nervously tapping the rail by the vice-president's desk. For a week he had dreaded this interview. Night after night he had worked over his financial state ment, but now as he faced the ordeal he knew that the paper he held in his hand was a sorry mess of figures that he could not prove. It seemed to him that bankers wanted to know a lot of fussy details that no man could be expected to answer off hand and he hated to go through all that it seemed like a million questions to him. The trouble with this man, and so many others in the same boat with him, is that he has never had his eyes opened to the need of getting more figure facts about his business. He thinks the cost of making daily records would eat up all his profits and he needs to be shown that on the contrary he would make more money if he had them. Most successful men in business today have learned that clear, accurate, detailed records of all the depart ments and operations of their business are the best assurance of success. Machine methods of figuring and mechanical aids in bookkeeping and record keeping have simplified these operat'ons so that it is no longer necessary to carry a heavy bookkeeping expense to get the necessary facts. With a Burroughs figuring machine an inexperienced clerk can work out automatically all the figure prob lems of business transactions as: adding sales and charge slips, footing all sorts of figure columns, prov ing postings, taking trial balances, checking invoices, distributing sales by clerks or departments, totaling weights and quantites and so on. Telephone the nearest Burroughs office and ask them to show you the type of machine you need and how to get the facta about your business. Burroughs Adding Machine Company FORT WORTH OFFICE G. C.
