The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, April 22,1937 HIDES - WOOL TOP MARKET PRICES PAID FOR HIDES AND WOOL Joe Greenberg Another Party Jimmie Neville la going to have another party for his widows. He says It will be a formal affair, everybody keeps their shoes on. I think It will cure my rheumatism to get out and mix with a bunch of merry widows. Working all the time makes me selfish. People who thinft of no one except themselves are on the wrong road. They will never get anywhere, but If you think of everyone except yourself you will be a big sucess. Let me be a little meeker To be all that I should be; Let me think more of my neighbor, And a little less of me. I was surely thinking of my customers when I bought a shipment of Men's Country Club $5.00 Oxfords and then put them on sale at $2.98... It is fun to see them sell. That is the way we do with everything. It Is Neville's plan. The*same shoes for less money. Quick sales and small profits. I love to see them move. Volume Is what we are after, any little profit will do.
