Sam's specialty was to take over some run-down store that somebody else had given up as a failure. Then Sam would turn it into a gold •mine. "But the most important thing •of all," he used to say, "is to remember who's Boss!" "You may think you are Boss of your business . . . but you're not. The Public, your customers, are the Teal bosses . . . and you've got to run your business the way ll^.y want it." Well... the brewers feel the same way about it. They don't want their beer sold in wrong surroundings. They know it doesn't pay. Add they know it hurts the good name of beer. I whs reading the other day how the brewers and the beer distributors work together and cooperate with law enforcement authorities. The idea is to make careless beer > retailors clean up their places and practices ... or close up. It's a good plan . . . and it seems to me it ought to work. I under- ctand it is already in operation in " made a big impression on me, . . . particularly since it, certainly seemed to work so well in Sam's case. And Sam isn't the only one. I see the beer industry feels the same way . . . certainly, the brewers believe in running their business the way you and I would like to see it run. / , « * Folks like us like to see beer sold in clean, quiet, decent places. EDWARD STEWART, BURT, WINS AAU CHAMPIONSHIP Burb Edward. Stewart, son of D. M, Stewart, who has been stationed at Camp Polk, La., recently won the Southern A. A. U. wrestling championship In his class at New Orleans, "Eddie" who won wrestling honors both In -high school and college and acted as high school athletic coach after graduating, has been coach of wrestling In the army, last He was to leave Camp Polk week and go to Port Sill, extended. , It's a mighty fine thing when a great industry has the gumption to do a 'job like that on its own initiative. And if Sam Abernethy was right, the brewers should be mighty successful , . . because they're running their business the way the public wants to see it run. Okla., to begin officers' training.
