Austin Daily Texan (Newspaper) - February 25, 1940, Austin, Texas Fage four the first College daily in the South phone 2-2473 the daily texan phone 2-2473 sunday february 25, 1941 Coop report today s crossword Puzzle the students Assembly committee for investigation of the University co operative society is to he congratulated on the report which it made Friday night. The committee headed by Keith Davis has done a masterful Workmanlike Job Over a period of four months a Job which doubtless required a great Deal of time and perhaps even some sacrifice of class work in Light of the report made Friday night however any concessions made by the committee to grades Are not to be regretted. In making the investigation committee members doubtless acquired As much or More practical knowledge than they could have received from regular class work in the same period. In a report As comprehensive As this one it is to be expected that nobody will agree with the recommendations in Toto. Some of them Are obviously Good some Are obviously bad and some Are simply indifferent. As a whole however the report is based on sound economic and business principles and the recommendations Merit the serious consideration of the Coop Board of directors. Especially is this True in regard to such recommendations As department ligation of the Coop inauguration of More adequate accounting methods a better organized purchasing department designed to take advantage of Cash discounts and a return to the rebate system of profit sharing. These Are but a few of the committee s More important recommendations. The others together with the text of the report will be found elsewhere in this Issue of the texan and deserve thoughtful Reading by every student and faculty member of the University. The Campusano by c e 5 chains and the Little fellow prank Parker Stockbridge the Well known author recently wrote a i Don t hear quite As much talk As i used to about Chain stores driving the Tittle fellow out of or. Stockbridge is quite right. The talk has subsided. The reason is that the Public is learning that the chains can t drive the a Little fellow out of business when the a Little fellow Quot has the initiative ideas and Energy that it takes to succeed in any kind of Enterprise. During the last decade the proportion of business done by chains and independents has held at a remarkably constant level. Many economists Are convinced that the chains have reached their Apex of growth and. If anything will do less of the nation s retail Trade in the future than they do now. You can have Access to All the capital tie Cess Ary to run a big business Enterprise and vet this Enterprise car fail from Lack of adequate personnel. Man to Man the stores which capitalists can set up Are today one of the rarest of commodities. There is a dearth of Good men and the Chain stores which need More Good men than the individual enterprises Are thus harder bit. If a Man starts a holiness on h ? own Book and finds he Doe not know enough about it he learns what he needs to know and he learns it fast for he has i own investment to protect. On the other hand the majority of men working for the Chain Are interested Only in being Good enough to hold on to their Job. Thus you have desire for advancement in one phase and Only the desire to maintain the stat is quo in the other. The a Little fellow has met Chain Competition by offering intelligent , and it a worked. This does not mean that Little merchants Dor fail to but so do inefficient chains along wih a goodly number of big merchant. They fail because Quot hey Are under capitalized because they Are inexperienced because they pursue methods which Are obsolete the daily texan the Usu Lam a a.
