However, there arc worse things than ))csslmlstn. One of these is tin.- tendency to jumn at conclusions, simply because those conclusions louk rosy and are in line with our own private desires. It is far wiser to take all facts into cousider.Uiim, when facts are available, and Ihoi) .0 form a sensible conclusion and to act accordingly. At the present time there is a feeling prevailing among consumers llml price.? are going down io stay. Tills idea prevails in tin fac> of warnings only a month or two igo that retail prices, (or the cost of living) would rise to an cxtssit which could l>a considered inila- lonary. The cause of this complete about face, amony consumers, i or in simple words, among you folks who read this, i.s easily underst md- able. Your merchants, who have been held buck during the y«:n.; r,( the OPA from any great Incieas:- In sales and from an even lesser increase in profits, yet with Iheir costs rising gradually to the point where there was less and less margin left for profit at all, were like n coiled spring which, having been held depressed was suddenly released. With the sudden victories of the Republican parly, fallowed closely by President Truman's abolition of price controls, the merchant, suddenly released from all restraint. remembering IhD (lust eagerness of the retail trade to buy. wtill« he had very little to sell, lind- iiw his mail Hooded with olT'jrs j| attractive..iii'jrchanctise plus- o.igcr salesmen who for the first lim;! In years, began calling upon him with their old time Imovancv and niter- ing hi:n goods which it seemed to him would s-.-tl fast and on sL-ii' to a heretofore starved public, te- gan to buy. Then, too, the hoiidav season WHS at hand and ho |;,i 0 \ v that for several Christmasscs in- had not been able to secure cnoiuh to go around. He ciuito nalurall- supposed that he could buy a store full of merchandise and dlsuiK of it ciuickly before the rebound cam All the above would have be-in sound reasoning but for one little thine. Most merchants forgot (hat every merchant would be able Is buy about what he bought. Thus he came to a holiday season iviilj his shelves full of merchandise but with his brother merchants ;,!so with shelves full. As a result Ihe consumer, seeing so much of ihs same merchandise in so many utor^s became very independent and he- Han to shop around before buying Naturally this brought on first one price reduction and then aiulhcr and of course all this caused All- Retail Buyer to "shop" more and more. Now. with the holiday season over, while the merchants do tv,t have what would be ordhiarly termed excessive stocks, they do have loo much , p r certain items and with Inventories running higher thmi necessary and their holFctay carry-over stock to be paid for thXy would rather lake less profit and turn their excess stock into cash than Lo carry excessive Inventories Ma the new yenr. Thus Ihe buyer finds practically all merchants nfTer'ne nerchandise for sale at greatly reduced prices and immediately lumps to the conclusion that prices \\ill continue their downward (real in the future. THE RETAIL BUYER SHOUID TAKE ADVANTAGE OP A IOW MARKET WHILE HE CAN! If he waits, he will within a short time find prices again soaring and his dollar which will now buy perhaps SI.-IO worth of merchandise uill then buy about C5c or lOc wov:,i or the same merchandise. Here are some figures to sup-url the above 'assertion. The flgmWarr there, we can't get around, ovi- n- under them. So>R will be miKh b-i- ter for all if we face I hem squairlv and act accordingly. (These figured pevlaln only to the textile or DRY- GOODS and CLOTHING market Doubtless other commodities will act in about the same manner 1 THERF IS a 17% increase In freight rales effective Jan. 1st.
