Mr. Bishop, "we can supply these

This, the University is ,doing now for
other libraries. One particular enter-
prise the University has undertaken
is the rep'roduction of more than 100
books, in .ten copies each. These are
all books of which only one printed
copy is known to eist. The Clements
library here is one of ten libraries re-

A whole lot of the make-believe has been
eliminated from selling operations in the
past ten year's. The old idea that sales-
me'n were born to the sample-ease, that
they carried some sort of a special diplo-
ma from the University of Pooh, has had
to break camp, along with the other
exploded theory which insisted that a
salesman must be a "good fellow", a-man
of strange habits, tremendous stories,
and unquestioned' qualities both as a
mixer, and as an assimilator.
Now we believe-nay, we know-
that, the best salesman is the man who
knows most about his goods, and can
talk most interestingly about them.
This being the proven case, it i6n't so
queer thatengineering should find a real
and effective application in the selling
field, especially if the merchandise iar-
keted is an engineering pioduct that is,
bought and operated by engineers.
Every engineer who now engages in
the sale and distribution of Westinghouse
products feels that 'he vis doing work
worthy of his training-for he is carrying
Service and Sincerity to Industry, and
to mankind! He is out where the fighting
is often the fiercest, and he is putting up
a battle for the things that he believes
are right. And a man can't expect, nor
ask, a bigger chance than that!
Sixty percent, approximately, of the
engineering graduates who come to
Westinghouse find their way eventu-
ally into some phase of selling. And
-we are prod to have them there-and
they are 'glad to be there!
