A good bookkeeping sys* I tem and systematic checks on it at ;* gular intervals has been the key to many successful enterpri- , sev Many small businesses, which l cannot afford to hire full-tirr.e ac* > countants have found <> solution ' in the seveial tax and accounting i services that are offered.

A quiet, unassuming young man. he has made a name foi him ; self in the financial woild of Dc ! troit. To earn the right to put CPA behind your name as an at count ant is similar to having to pass the bai in the law profession Sometime ago the MHBUNE attempted a drive to get down town stores to employ Negroes in other than menial capacities. It is the belief of many that people should be hired on the basis of their qualifications rather than on the color of their skin. We are happy to say there are a few store owners who do not have to be foiced to do the right thing TODDS CLOTHES is one of them. Their policy has been one of fairness in employment for a number of years. Todd has em ployed Negro salesmen along with his other salesmen. If they made the grade, then the job was theirs. One of his oldest and best known salesmen is Jimmie John son. He is capable, courteous and an asset to the store. Todd's deserves commendation citv on Northern Honshu Inland.
