"There is no :doubt in our minds
that 1960 and the years following
will see continued growth in the
automotive 'srevice 'and repair, busi-,
ness", ,says Mr. Stacey. "And while
1960 will show .a substantial in,
crease, it is only a foretaste of
what will happen in the next teni
years. This is not just our opinion.
Mr. Arthu rC. Butler, Chairman of
the National Highway Users Con-
ference, says that indications 'are
that today's 70,000,000 vehicles
will have grown 'to 100,000,000 with-
in the next ten years, and that by
1970 vehicle owners will be spend-
ing $2.5 billion more per year for
parts, tires and accessories, alone."
On this subject Mr. Stacey is in I
position to speak with considerable
authority, as the executive-head 'of
N-A-P-A, the nation's largest inde-
pendent patrs organization. Thru
its 45 warehouses, each stocking
upward of 55,000 different parts
required for cars now in service,
| N-A-P-A supplies more than'3,00.0
automotive ejobbers in all 50 states

Poetry is a record 'dot experiences
told in words that are as intense
and beautiful' 'as possible. Most
poetry is written in a form which
we call verse.
The poet usually prefers to
speak through concrete images ra-
ther than through ,abstract ideas.
The words, "Patience is a virtue",
means little *or noting by them-
selves. What is patience, and why
is it 'a virtue? What does one gain
by being patient, adn what may he
lose by being impatient? The Bible
tells us that patin'ece is a virtue by

Boyles Lay-A-Way business is

Now tor a lighter look at sell-
ing: Prospective customer: "Do
you keep fountain pens here?"
Salesman (brightly): "No, we sell
them". Prospective customer:
"Okay, but keep the one you might
have sold me if you hadn't been
so smart". Sometimes we wonder
how many good sales are lost by
salespeople who are just too
smart don't you run into at
least one on every shopping tour?
It's quite easy to spot the cour-
teous, mature salseperson who lis-
tens attentively and quietly
strives to please the customer.
They recognize a responsibility to
make your shopping easier, plea-
sant and efficient. Isu't it a good
feeling 'to leave a store and be able
to say: "The salesperson who
waited on me was most helpful".
The salespeople at Boyles have a
weekly meeting to discuss these
important problems in selling. We
strive to be helpful and to please.
Will you kindly tell us when we
fail? Time to close just one
more grin: "Sir, my wife said I
was to ask for a raise." Boss:
"Good, I'll ask my wife if I may
give you one." S'long. -RGB

McCarty -said that "sit downs"
must be eliminated in the state.
He declared 'the merchant's right
to free enterprise under the con-
stitution and that this right should
