E. McElroy, Editor-Manager of the
Waxahachie (Texas) bight, Says:
“Did you ever stop to think that
the solution of the problems of mer-
chandising, community building, buy-
ing at home, and all other similar
problems peculiar to the average small
city and town in this country lies
with the independent retailers?
“We hear much complaint about
the chain store, the disloyalty of those
who buy out-of-town, the ever-in-
creasing stagnation of local merchan-
dising, etc., but we seldom stop to
think that those of us who are known
as independent retailers taking pride
in calling ourselves executives, are
lacking in knowledge of really mod-
ern and aggressive business methods.
Too often we allow ourselves to be
led by our businesses, drifting along
the lines of least resistance, rather
than leading our business by aggres-

At this, the beginning of the New Year, let us determine to
put forth more energy in our lfe’s undertaking, whatever it might be.
When our car “sticks” we exert every energy to pull out—if “life’s

The time has come when we must labor earnestly and continuously
