    In Salesmanship
Men Prefer Men,
Dealers Advised
“We continue to forget the
spiritual side of man, and a
salesman should be a salesMAN ”
! This is the philosophy Jeff
Coates, director of sales training
at New Holland Machine Co, ex
pressed i na speech before the
Lancaster County Farm Equip
ment Dealers association Rhoads
Spanish Tavern Quarryville,. was
the* site of the meeting that
brought a dinner crowd of 55
Friday night
Among influences in selling, M r .
Coates told, are the belief we
ln-e in a moral universe, that the
laws of God do not cease with
the laws of Nature, that there
is a God who has created the
universe and governs it.
“There’s a fallacy m being lik
;d and not respected; there’s a
fallacy in price cutting,” the sales
iirector warned, and “the farmer
Joes a better job of buying some
ames than we do in selling.
‘ The farm equipment industry
s concerned about price cutting,
md' the profit margin remains
lint. The manufacturer is no
itronger than the financial
strength of his dealers.”
I Mr. Coates graduated in the
lop five per cent of his class at
Hie University of Arkansas, serv
ed as a Major under General Pat
ton, and has been manager of
pies personnel at the United
Itctes Steel Co, until joining New
Holland. '
President Roy A Bru
aker, Lititz RD 3, was master
ceremonies. He emphasized the
portance cff the retail service
aler,'and urged efforts be con
mtrated on the winter farm
ipment overhaul, when the serv
man is not on field calls, when
»re is not the crop season rush
• -emergency calls, and when
fe can utilize his shop and
lechanics more efficiently.
Progress of the collection pro

Hunters, 50,000 Strong, Will
Shoot in State Duck Season
Last year’s r'ecord indicates 50,-
00D or more sportsmen will in
vade likely water areas in qnd
hounding Pennsylvania in pursuit
01 j waterfowl during the so-called
dLck season” of 1955 Some hunt
ers will crouch in blinds or man
specially built, concealed boats in
«vait for the birds to come to
their decoys Others .lacking the
cainoflage ideh-out or expensive
gear ,wil slip along stream banks
and around marshes ,on the aleit
for jmp shooting opportunities
A few will hide in brush or fields
at strategic points on flight lanes,
for pass sohoting
The Oame Commission points
ot that a large population of ducks
rn Canada does not necessarily
indicate the extentto which the

such as-claef weather and low

Duck Hunter’s Prayer
The duck hunter’s prayer is for
rcught weather, low ceiling and
plenty of water Under such con
ditions larger numers ofb migrant
ducks “sit down” on our streams
and ponds during their fall flight
Until waterfowl to the north start
to move southward under the
urge of cold weather, ducks rear
ed in Pensylvania and on nearby
waters will bear the brunt of the
eaily shooting in this state

Large farms made moie money

are more fixed costs on large

incomes when there is a drop in
prices of farm products'
Tenants Gain 131%
During the study period, ten
ants had a 131 per cent increase
m total capital investments com
pared to 53 per cent for owner
operators. Most of this increase
was in lovestock and machinery,
and of course tenants had no m
vestment in real estate In 1946-
50, tenants had an average in
vestment of almost $13,000 This
shows that even the beginning ten

more money than did the owner
