Head of United Business

Retail Code; Says He Rep
resents 10,000 Stores
Washington, Aug. 23 —(AP)—Small
retailers whose investmnet is not more
than SSOO were called the sources of
unfair competition today by A. Lin
coln Weisler, president of the United
Business Men’3 Association of Chicago
at the resumption of hearings on the
retail code.
Weisler, who said there about
425,000 such store-keepers described
them as ‘‘a cancerous growth that has
been gnawing at the vitals of good,
honest and fair retailing.”
Weisler said he represented 10,000
stores in Chicago.
“These small store-keepers are some
of the chislers who are undermining
business in every locality and neigh
borhood,” he said. “The unfair com
petition that exist© today in retailing
comes from this type of merchant. He
never joins his chamber of corn
mrce, trade association or business
men’s association.
“These merchants are a cancrrous
growth who have been gnawing at
the vitals of good honest and fair re
tailing, and, while I do not know what
can be done about them, the return of
'Employment and prosperity will
greatly depend upon what our govern
ment plans to do about these unfair
retail competitors.”
