1 t THE ALTOOMA MlRROfc—TH-URSDAY, NOVEMBER;, 1929 RADIO USERS LIKE ' HOTECTIONIDM That the plan of the,Blair County Radio Dealers' association In protecting Its customers through the installation of new radio sets instead of onei that have been used in various home* on trial, is meeting with general approval has been evidenced by the receipt of a number of commendatory letters and personal messages from radio users -who have purchased sets through the new system. This fact •was brought out. at the fourth monthly meeting- of the - association .at the Penn-Alto hotel last evening, beginning at 6.30 o'clock. It will be recalled that a few months ago the dealers of the county formed an association with the principal Idea of 'protecting the buyers of radio sets. A plan, which was Indorsed by all members of the association, was. placed into effect whereby no radio sets would be" installed in homes on trial. Complete satisfaction was guaranteed * on all equipment sold, The system, previously employed by the majority of the dealers was that when, a person, purchased a radio, a set WM placed in the home on trial and if satisfaction did not result .another would be .in* stalled,. This interchanging of eets 'continued until the reception was satisfactory to the purchaser, All sets, regardless of how many .homes they had been in on trial, were considered new until sold outright. The mechanism of the'sets, however, often became impaired due to/the changing from home to home,. With the advent of the new system adopted by the dealers, this dittlciilty has been overcome and the radio customers, in. general, are better pleased. When a set is purchased from a member of the association it is delivered dirept to the customer in the same mechanical condition It was when received by the dealer from the factory. The association last evening decided to further improve its protection policy by assisting in the elimination of radio reception disturbances. All dealers must cooperate with the customers, however, the. latter to report disturbances' in their neighborhoods to the dealers, whp.Hij turn WlH attempt to eliminate the sources of disturbance. This has been done In several instances already. Dealer* in other oities have written the glair association concerning tne outcome of its system and seeXing Information which will help them in forming, similar organizations. It is believed that the plan of protecting the,customer will be in VQgue in other cities as well as AUoona from present indications. T It is creditable to the local defers, however, to know that their idea is meeting with approval and that it hat also proved practical. Buy Your Radio Now! ' .
