LUNCHEON BY BUSINESS
Alfonso Johnson, director of trade
extension of the Dallas Chamber of
Commerce, addressed a number of
business men at a luncheon given in
his honor at the Jefferson Hotel at
In his talk, Mr. Johnson said that
the business depression which has held
“The most important,.thing in bu-
siness is the human equation and yet
many merchants overlook the need ol
trained employees and folks who
have a genuine interest in the busi-
ness. In this great Southwest, we
are very human and we buy goods
from folks we like; other things be-
ing equal, or almost equal, we trade
with the friendly store, the store that
is human and that is interested in us.
“The proprietor of a retail store
sometimes gets the idea that he is
the big boss, but he isn't. The only ;
boss to be recognized in retailing is '
the customers, and the more success- !
ful we are in making her feel that
she is the boss, the more business we
will do. Salespeople should remem- 1

fall of the year, and the average I .

Mankind spends most of its
time seeking thrills, new and
greater thrills—no matter what
1 i* you have never had the thrill
of a rejuvenated garment, you
must call us.
That dull dress, that wilting
suit, those neckticd ties—oh,
what thrills await you!
Try us—you will be thrilled!
When better cleaning is done
we will do it.
