CUSTOMERS NEED ETHICS TOO Some automobile dealers, notably in large cities, have been guilty of fleecing the public. This is to be expected in our imperfect world. Bankers .have made off with the bank's money. Lawyers have been - caught in shady deals. And normally honest po- . licemon ha\e taken bribes. There are a few - black sheep in e\ery flock. ]-'or- tunately tliough. "the percentage of dealers is very small. Still, you ^can'l Illume the man who has had "a hud experience for thinking the whole flock is black. Farewell Coffee Mrs Ed Hagg and Mrs Virgil Rohlf gave a farewell coffee SI.
