M. Brinker, president of the National Association of Retail Grocers, Thursday defended clerks who lose their tempers and said the men and women behind the counters are taking their share of insults from scatter-brains and chronic grouches. "The customer is always right," said the Dallas, Tex., gvocer, "except for the duration." Brinker, here for the annual meeting of the retail grocers, said that the customer who gets insulted "9-times out of 10 has only himself to blame." Brinker has met all types of customers and has found they run to types. "There is the efficient housewife," he said, "svho knows the mechanics of rationing thoroughly. She causes little trouble." Brinker said the other customers fell into the category of scatter-brained or hysterical, not forgetting the husband who buys spasmodically. "All fail to get into the swing of rationing," he said.
