for the manager, as is the case in many institutions. How then are the department heads to know what the other "bosses"-ranking equally—are doing? The morning meeting is the answer; where incoming correspondence is discussed, past work is checked up, responsibility is diveded and apportioned.

In the morning meeting the engineer gets the views of his associates—the salesman who must keep up his quotathe credit man who is trying to make collections keep pace with sales—all get the point of view of the man who is paying his money for the product. Results are to be seen outside and inside the plant. The employee gives his best to the organization because he knows that returns proportionate to what he gives will come back to him; the patrons "tie to” a company whose departments can initiate a thing and carry it through without overhead or other interference.

Under these conditions, it is not difficult to get individuality from the individual-personality into the organization. The Cutler-Hammer method of making each man responsible and bringing the executives together to get each other's point of view is so successful that it is not only proof that it can be done, but it goes a long way to prove that it is the best method. A single instance will be ample evidence of the spirit of personality that pervades the plant. When I spoke of giving manager Berresford credit for the great efficiency of the organization, he said: "That will never do; give the boys (the other department heads) the credit. They are the ones who really run things. I merely circulate around and see how fine they are keeping things going.”

ERE is a little confession, made by a man who now draws a

salary made up of five figures. "When I came into this office as a boy, I was elected to push a broom, run errands and do as many other things as I could find time to do between eight in the morning and six in the evening, and I pulled down three dollars every week; but I wasn't exactly happy, I must confess. You see, the fellow over would scold me fierce, and he seemed to make it his business to keep me jumping. How I longed for the happy day that I'd be able to hold his job. Well, time rolled on as it always does, and one day my ambition was gratified.

“I had his job and I had his pay, and also another point of view. The chief clerk was now my boss, a grouchy cuss with a frowning face, and I had my troubles good and plenty. But I stayed around, and after a while I became the chief clerk. Then it was that the manager discovered me, and I discovered another boss. When the manager flitted hence, I was Johnny on the spot, I was again elected, and then I found that the manager wasn't the real boss, because the president of our company was the man who said what was what.


Here's the real truth the European War has forced home on us—that America must become more self-sustaining. She must make her products instead of buying them. She must build up American industry instead of drawing her materials from abroad. She must make American business safer—more stable. The only way she can do it is by using products that are made in America of American material. That's why so many far-sighted business men have been insisting upon

Cut Coal Costs




Q Inanapartment buildingat 246 West End Ave., New York City, two Kewanee Smokeless Firebox Boilers save the owners $7.88 daily or $1654.80 in a heating season of 210 days.

To heat this building they burn daily 192 tons of bituminous coal costing $3 75 per ton—a coal cost of $5 62 In another building, of the same size and type owned by the same concern, another make of boiler (not a smokeless) burns daily three tons of Anthracite Coal costing $4 50 per ton-a coal cost of $13 50

This shows a daily saving of $7 88 by the Kewanee Smokeless Firebox boilers compared with the other boilers in the other building Q A Kewanee Smokeless Boiler burns the cheapest of soft coal without smoke Therefore, it is unnecessary to burn high priced Anthracite or smokeless coals even in cities where a smoke ordinance prohibits smoky boilers That is one saving a And a Kewanee Smokeless Boiler has conclusively proven its ability to get a bigger proportion of the heat from cheap sost coal than ordinary boilers can get from expensive Anthracite


HE good customer is not always

the man who gives the big order,

nor yet the one who pays his bills promptly-not but that these traits are good ones in any customer—but the really good customer is the man who buys what he wants at the same price and on the same terms as other buyers get, and who pays for what he buys when he says he will.

No customer can be said to be a good customer who is always trying to beat down a price or obtain an extra favor in terms. A good customer is not the man who is always seeking to claim allowances for shortages or errors that are partly or wholly fictitious. Nor is he a good customer who mails a check on the twelfth day with the ten-day discount taken off. In fact, a good customer is a man who gives and expects a fair deal in every transaction.

Large buyers are apt to be pursued and fawned upon until they are spoilud and get an inflated idea of their importance and insist


concessions that they are not entitled to. A small buyer who is a good customer is worth more than a large buyer who is not.

A Big Thought
from Subscriber No. 1


The Hon. Edward W. Gray—a real estate operator—now Member of Congress from New Jersey, was the first subscriber to The Modern Business Course and Service of Alexander Hamilton Institute.

In a splendid letter to the Institute, Congressman Gray says: “When the majority of our business men understand the fundamental principles of business, many of the serious troubles from which the country is suffering

will disappear.” The Hon. Edward W. Gray

This means that the country is looking for its leaders to the modern type of

business man. The open-minded man. The man who is bigger than the four walls of Member of Congress from New Jersey

his own work. The forge-ahead type of man who thinks of business not in terms

of “cogs, levers and wheels,” but as one vast, smoothly working Business Machine. Such a man realizes that to be in the front rank of Today's leaders of men and affairs he must understand not only his own business intimately but also he must have a general knowledge of Organization, Accounting, Costs, Credits, Finance, Advertising, Selling, Commercial Law and Economics.

The Great Profession of tomorrow is Business. The professionally trained business man can look forward to a wonderful future. He will replace the rule-of-thumb man in the management of business; he will replace the theorist, the ill-informed dreamer, the incompetent poseur in the conduct of national affairs.

The Modern Business Course and Service of the

Alexander Hamilton Institute is a reading course covering the whole range of business knowledge. From the massed experience of thousands of business men there have been distilled the basic principles and laws governing business.

As one subscriber said, “To read your Course is like mounting a watch tower to survey a field of battle—the whole plan of operations lies before your eyes, making everything clear and easily understood."
