SHIPMENTS IN REO AUTOS
VERY HEAVY. SAYS D.E.BATES
Secretary and Treasurer Claims He
Never Saw Drafts Taken Up So
Quickly—Motor Oar Business
Strictly Cash Paying One ,
"Business is wonderful and collec
tions are more so," says Donold '£.
Bates, secretary and treasurer o£ the
Reo Motor Car Company, in a letter to
George Q. McGarland, president of the
Harrisburg Auto Company, the local
"Never have we known a time when
drafts were taken up so promptly as
' during the past few months.
"Fortunately for all concerned, the
automobile business is a strictly cash
business. Such a thing as credit is
unknown either between factory and
dealer or dealer and customer. So to
speak of collections being goont seems
like a contradiction. All automobiles
are shipped from factory to dealer
'sight draft attached to bill of lading,'
however, and when one consider* that
the minimum amouat involved is about
$4,000 ( a carload being the minimum
shipment) while a trainload which is
a common thing with us nowadays ag
gregates from $120,000 to $150,000
and the average is nearly $20,000, it
will be seen that the average dealer
is confronted with a real financing
problem when his cars arrive. In fact,
in normal times, there are always a
few straggling cases where v dealers
leave the cars on siding for a few days
or even weeks
"On April 30 the Reo Motor Car
Company had outstanding in drafts for
cars in transit a total of only $450,-
000. That is about four days output
of the factory.
"And more remarkable, not a draft
out was dated earlier than April 7
on cars en route to Pacific Coast Flori
da and other distant points.
"When it is considered that the av
erage freight time is more than a week
and that the aggregate of all drafts
out was only four days business, it will
be seen that this is a remarkable—in
fact an unprecedented condition.
"It shows that not only is buying
free but that the cash is rea'dy to pay
for the c«rs. For, whe« a dealer takes
up a carioud or ten carloads or a traiu
load of Reos on the day it arrives, pay
ing the draft at the same time as he
must, it proves not merely that he has
a ready demand, but that the cars have
actually been sold before arrival and
that the buyers are there waiting for

Everybody has noticed when the air 1

Yet we know the aun hasn't changed
at all. It is the mist in the air that
makes the color seem different. And
in the dawn and dusk, no inatter how
clear the air may be, the sun is much
redder in color than when it is over
bead in the middle of the day. The
reason for this is that in the morning
and evening we see the sun through a
thicker belt of air. It ia this thicker
air which makes it look redder, just
as It is the fog which has the same
effect If the air were taken away en

to be still less red.
Since in the middle of the day the
aun is white, how could it be less red?
By being blue.
The atmosphere is really like a thick

world and the bright blue sun. Like a

aa a filter. Actually the air stops most
of the blue rays, but lets nearly all the
orange colored rays come through.

REYNOLDS, TOBACCO MAN.
BELIEVES IN ADVERTISING
He Has Had a Remarkable Career in
the Industry and Tells in An In
teresting Way How His Business
From boyhood days, as a tobaoco fac
tory laborer to president aud active di
rector of one of the world's largest
tobacco industries, tells the snap-shot
life story of Hit-hard J. Reynolds, of
Mr. Reynolds believes in advertising;.
When it is known that in 1914 tho
R. J. Reynolds Tobaoco Company's out
put amounted to many millions of
pounds of tobacco, it isn't difficult to
understand just what two or three per
cent, in advertising means in dollars
in 1894 Mr. Reynolds first realized
that, properly applied and backed by
tobacco worth all lie asked for it, ad
vertising was profitable. He invested
S4OOO that year and saw his business
grow over 200,000 pounds. Next year
lie spent five times as much—and his
From that period to the present the
R. .1. Reynolds Tobacco Company has
rushed forward with sincere belief in
the quality of its brands—and firm con
fidence in marketing them with intelli
gently conceived and applied newspaper
and magazine advertising.
Mr. Reynolds talks interestingly.
"I started my career in growing and
manufacturing tobacco when I was a
boy," said the founder, as he chatted
in the big executive building at
Winston-Salem a few weeks ago, "serv
iug my time as a laborer in a tobaoco
factory. At the age of eighteen I was
promoted to superintendent of this fac
tory. In those days tobacco factories
only ran four months in the year and
the other sight months I was engaged
as a tobacco salesman.
1 "In 1872 I felt the need of a mora
thorough business education and gave
up this work to take a course at a busi
ness college. In 1873 I began the man
ufacture of tobacco in a log cabin fac
tory sixty miles from a railroad in
Pahrick county, Virginia, with a capital
of $2700. The first year in business I
manufactured 40,000' pounds, the next
year 80,000 pounds and then sold my
brands and trademarks to my partners,
and moved to Winston-Salem for the
benefit of railroad facitilies, and on ac
count of this town being located in the
center of the belt in which the finest
tobacco in the world is grown.
"I erected here a plant that cost
$2400 and began business with a cap
ital of $7500, taking in a partner,
whom I bought out two yeaw later.
We manufactured the first year 150,000
pounds, which was the capacity of the
plant. From then on, about every other
year, this factory was built (in top,
bottom and additions made to each end,
until the business was increased to
1,000,000 pounds, having taken
eighteen years to secure this volume.
"In 1892 the business amounted to
1,085,929 pounds; in 1893 the busi
ness amounted to 1,006,101 pounds.
Seeing that my business had lost over
the previous year and having had ac
cumulated more capital than was neces
sary to run the business, I decided ttf
experiment in advertising. It was really
my first experience and I haw found it
profitable ever since.
"I spent About $4 000 in 1894 and
secured an increase to '1,215,328
pound/*. Seeing that the profits on the"
increase I made more than reimbursed
me for the money invested. I was in
fluenced to make an appropriation for
the next year of $40,000 and erect a
building with a capacity of ten times
the business that was being done at that
tune. The $40,000 expenditure in
creased the business that year to
I ln> sixth year this factory was
overworked, the output representing
11,389,822 pounds. Since that time
the appropriation for advertising has
been increased year after year propor
tionately with the increase in business
"Probably the best example in this
history of advertising is Prince Albert
pipe and cigarette tobacco. Six vears
ago it was a new brand. Real and true
tobacco quality behind every printed
word has made Prince Albert the,
largest selling brand of smoking to
bacco in the world! It is today sold
in every civilized country.
