Standard Policy
Standard Qyality must be inseparably linked to a Standard Policy. Without a definite and Standard Mercantile Policy, it is impossible for a Manufacturer to long maintain a Standard Qyality. To market his goods through a jobber, a manufacturer must provide a profit for the jobber as well as for the retail dealer. To meet these conditions of Dual Profits, the manufacturer is obliged to set a proportionately high list price on his goods to the consumer. To enable the glib salesinan, when booking his orders, to figure out attractive profits to both the jobber eind retailer, these high list prices are absolutely essential; but their real purpose will have been served when the manufacturer has secured his order from the jobber, and the jobber has secured

from the retailer. However, these deceptive high list prices are not air to the consumer, who does not, Eind, in reality, is not ever expected to pay these fancy list prices. When the season opens for the sale of such goods, with their misleading but alluring high list prices, the retailer begins to realize his responsibilities, and grapples with the situation as best he can, by offering "special discounts," which vary with local trade conditions. Under this system of merchcindising, the profits to both the manufacturer and the jobber are assured ; but as there is no stability maintained in the prices to the consumer, the keen competition amongst the local dealers invariably leads to a demoralized cutting of prices by which the profits of the retailer are

This demoralization always reacts on the manufacturer. The jobber insists The manufacturer, in his turn, meets this still lower, prices. the lowering of prices by the only v/ay open to him, viz. : the cheapening and degrading of the quality of his product.

As manufacturers, we can proceed with confidence in purchasing at the proper time, the very best raw materials required in the manufacture of our various goods, well eihead of their respective seasons, and this enables us to provide the necesssary quantity and absolutely maintain the Spalding Standard of Quality.

^The user

and the same prices

All retail dealers handling Spalding Athletic Goods are requested to supply consumers at our regular printed catalogueprices neithermore nor less thesame prices that similar goods are sold for in our New York, Chicago and other stores. All Spalding dealers, as well as users of Spalding Athletic Goods, are treated exactly alike, and no sjiecial rebates or discriminations are allowed to anyone. This briefly, is the " Spalding Policy," which has already been in successful operation for the past 13 years, and will be indefinitely continued. In other words, " The Spalding Policy " is a " square deal " for everybody.
