As manufacturers-, we try to produce at the lowest possible coat. We cannot set the prices at which our products—tractors, motor trucks, farm implements, refrigeration, and industrial power equipment—are sold. We can and do suggest list prices which the great majority of our dealers adopt as their retail prices. 120,000,000 Price Reduction Our basic price policy was publicly stated in March, 1947, when we announced price reductions at the rate of approximately $20,000,000 per year on our products. At that time, Fowler McCormick, Chairman of the Board, said: "ANY PRICE IS TOO HIGH IF IT CAN BE REDUCED." Practically all of our dealers cooperated with this policy and passed on the savings to their customers. The objeotiye of the price reductions was to make it poe- sib'te for customers to buy our products, which^they need BO badly, at lower prices. Naturally, this purpose ia defeated when our products are sold by anybody at inflated prices. IH Production at Alt-Time Peak Inflated prices are caused by the difference between supply and demand. To increase supply, we now have the greatest number of employes in history on our payrolls—almost 90,000 hi the United States, as against about 60,000 prewar. Large newplantsaregettlngintopro- duction in Louisville, Evans- vllle, and Melrose Park. A fourth will soon be In operation in Memphis. The men and women now employed are turning out the greatest quantities of IH products of all kinds that we have ever made. These are also the finest products we have ever made, and recognition of that fact Is an Important contributing factor to the demand for them. Distribution to Dealers But even record-breaking production is not sufficient to give your dealer—and other IH dealers—enough products to meet today's demand. We have tried to make the fairest possible geographical allocation of our products so that every dealer would get a fair skare, and we know that dealers, in most cases, have tried earnestly to make the fairest possible distribution to their customers. ' But we also know that many of our products—far; too many —are being -resold at inflated prices. The public criticism and resentment of these resales are of real concern to us, as we know they must be to our deal- ore, because auch microns en- danger tho good will of both the dealer and the Company in any community. Distribution to Customers Experience shows that many IH new products are being resold by users who decide they can continue to make out with their old equipment after they have had an inflated offer for their new equipment. To eliminate this, many dealers are taking measures to be sure that equipment purchased is for their customers' own use and is not to be resold. Nearly all IH dealers, we believe, are now using the basis of PRESENT NEED as their primary guide for the sale of scarce products. The customer whose need is real and urgent is not likely to resell. What Price Should You Pay? While it may take a little more time to get delivery, we urge our customers to consider all of the factors mentioned here, before,.paying more than the list price for any IH product. Any IH dealer or branch can furnish the suggested lUt price for any IH product. We know (hut the overwhelming majority" of IH dealers are M much opposed to inflated price* aa we are. In the public Intereat, we have already a*ked th«lr cooperation —and are now asking th« co-operation of customers—4a cowectlng this situation. dren were Sunday visitors of Mr. and Mrs..Harry Dunlap at Emerson.

Now, look at the tractor equipped with Roll-O- Matic. Here, the rise is only two and one-halt inches '— exactly halt that of the conventional tractor — and each front tire is taking its full share of the load. By minimizing the up-and- down movement of the front end, and equalizing the load between both front wheels, Roll-O-Matic offers a smoother, safer, more comfortable ride, and greatly increases front tire life. Steering, also, is greatly improved. Breeding claims the difference is immediately apparent upon driving one of these tracters — in the way It steers over rough ground ... on side-hills ... in furrows ... on top of- beds . . . aloag the eon- tour ... in almost any operating condition. There's no fighting the wheel, no creeping, no wearing from side to side. With just a guiding hand on the wheel, the tractor literally climbs out ot furrow*, "walks" right over obstructions, operates in rough fields with greater stability. Breeding says that Roll-0- Matlc is an exclusive John Beere feature and will <be made available for the new John Deere Models "A" an* "B" Tractors recently announced.
