The indications are that our sales this year will pass the
half million mark.
To increase our sales from $5,000 to $500,000 in seven
years on one brand of rubber footwear, in the New England
States alone, seems to us the best argument we could offer
that "BALL BAND" goods and 'BALL BAND" prices are
all right.
