A Statement To Our Customers About Resale PRICES of PRODUCTS BuSSt by lmtsirssa£H@RaS E Harvester Company Here at4Inrvcstcr we arc concerned over the fact that a growing number of our products are appearing on the re- talc market at greatly inflated prices. As manufacturers, we try to produce at the lowest possible, cost. We cannot set the prices at which our products—tractors, motor trucks, farm implements, refrigeration, and industrial power equipment—are sold. \Ve can and do suggest list prices which the great majority of our dealers adopt as their retail prices. $20,000,000 Price Reduction Our basic price policy wns publicly stated in March, 1947, when we announced price reductions at the rate of approximately $20,000,000 per year I on our products. At that time, Fowler McCo"nick, Chairman of the Board, said: "ANY PRICE IS TOO HIGH IF IT CAN BE KE- DUCBD." Practically all of our dealers cooperated with this policy and passed on the savings to their customers. The objective of the price reductions was to make R possible for customers to buy our products, which they need so badly, at lower prices. Naturally, this purpose is defeated when our products are sold by anybody at inflated prices. IH Production at All-Time Peak •^Mp* jrtCM vc caused by the diftpTcnce between supply anci demand. To incrAse supply, we now have the greatest number of employes in history on p\ir payrolls—almost 90,000 in the United States, as ngainst about 60,000 prewar. I,nrgc new plants nre get ting into product ion ill Louisville, F.vtins* ville, und Mclrose Park. A fourth will soon be in operation in Memphis. The men and women now employed are turning out the greatest quantities of III products of all kinds that ive have ever made. These arc also the iincst products we have ever made, and recognition of ilmt fact is an important contributing factor to the demand for ihcm. Distribution io Dealers But even record-breakinR production is not sufficient lo give your dealer—and other IH dealers—enough products to meet today's demand. Wo have tried to make the fairest possible: geographical allocation of our products so that every dealer would got a fair share, avid we know that dealers, in most cases, have tried earnestly to make the fairest possible distribution lo their customers. But we also know that many of our products—far loo many —are being resold al inflated prices. The public criticism and resentment of these resales are of real concern to us, as we know they must 1» to our dealers, because such reactions en- INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER $255,922 last year. |But Charles, a partner in the early St. Louis nickelodeon, no'* president ot ZOth's subsidiary,, National Theaters Amusement, Co., Inc., earned $982,395.

Experience shows that many III now products arc being resold by users who decide they cnn continue to make out with their old equipment after they have had an inflated offer for their new equipment. To eliminate this, ninny 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 pri- '• mary guide for the sale ofi 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 lo consider all of the factors mentioned here,' before paying more than the! list price for any TH product. Any 11! dealer or branch can furnish thesuggested list price for any HI product. We know that the over- [ whelming majority of III deal- , ers arc as much opposed to Inflated prices as we arc. In the public interest, we have already asked their cooperation —and arc now asking the cooperation of customers—in correcting this situation. Air Power it the bomber, fahler, the transport.
