STIIN, Auctioneer The origin and op- eration of Skaggs Stores Community pride and community interest are highly commendabl  traitsthe fountain-heads from which spring better homes, better schools better churches, roads, civic improve- ments andbetter citizens. Rapidly changing conditions--due, in large part, to modern methods of communi- cation, transportation and distributlon are responsible for the compara- tivzly recent development of former;y isolated points into thriving, content- ed and beautiful centers whose people have and enjoy all of the conveni- ences and luxuries of the- larger cities.

It is both natural and desirable then, that communities should be jealous of their resources and It is perfectly right and prop.r thatnot- withstanding the undeniable benefits and advantages they provide:he citizens of such communities should ask of "'chain" organizations like Skaggs stores, "Where do the Profits Go?" For. it is neither morally right nor economically sound tha one com- munity should be "bled" to enrich a few men in some distant and. possibly, larger center. Because of the essentially co-opera- tive plan of thetr operation, Skaggs stores are "local" stores in every sense of the word and the profits from them go back to the source iron which they came--the same or like communities in which they were earn- cdby as simple and natural a pro- cess as the return of the products of the soil to the land again, for its fur- ther enrichment. The manager of each individual Skaggs store is, indeed and in truth a "local" merchant, vitally interested in community development and com- munity growth. In nearly every casz he owns stock in the company and in every instance he depends, for a part of his earnings, upon the ne profits which his store produc.=s. He and his men live in the community have their families and their homes thereand expend money for their support and education exactly as any other merchant would do. In many cases he has more of his own actual money ventured upon the success of his company than is represented by the total investment of the average so-called "Independent" retailer. Therefore, for the same reasons in. cluding the purely selfish which gov- ern the actions of others, Skaggs store managers are d..=eply concerned In the welfare and prosperity of their commt'n|ty:and ' anything NhlCWmlght adversely affect them will arouse their instant opposition, just as any movement which will react to, its benefit and make it a rfiore desirzble place in which to live will enlist their h-arty support. For the surplus profits, accruing af- ter the manager has received the divi- dends on his stock, his share of the net profits and his salary and after the salaries of other helpers in the store, the rent and all other expenses have been met, an even broader and more beneficial use Is reserved. Such surplusses go back into new stores. in new communities, offering a new service and a merchant of high in- tegrity who is also interested in com- munity growth and community de- velopment. And, best of all, they pro- vide opportunity for those honest, am- bitious, hardworking young m.n with- in the organization who have devel- oped to managerial capacity and who are eager for their hard-won golden spurs. In this manner new stores are be- ing constantly opened, the service of Skaggs stores constantly broadened and extended, and Ioyal-herted, for- ward-looking men within the organi- zation are assured that they will have their "day in the sun." It is this abso- lute assurance of the certain reward of merit that accounts for the spirit and willingness of Bkaggs men wher- ever you find them, and welds into one harmonious whole the more than 300 widely scattered units.

WINTER CARE OF CAR Prepare the car now against the coming cold weather and be protected against any sudden drops in temperature, is the text of the warning broadcast by the Ford Motor Co. to Ford car driv- ers in cold climates. To eliminate as far as possible annoyances of winter driving, the service de- partment of the company has out- lined a set of s'imple precautions against freezing : They are in brief: Add anti- 'reeze solution to radiator. Be dis- creet in use of choke. Conserve battery current.
