CUTIONSSTUDENTGENTS
ARTHUR C. KEMBLE, '20, ADVISES
CAREFUL INVESTIGATION OF
ALL PROPOSITIONS
Editor; The Michigan Daily:
In making plans for summer work
during this war period, it is particu-
larly' important that students take
jrecautions against wasting their ef-
forts on useless enterprises. Each
June thousands of University men,
induced by fabulous commissions and
"guaranteed salaries" attempt variou
kinds of salesmanship, make financial
failures of their vacation months.
At Michigan about one hundred and
fifty students start out each summer
as sales agents for books, magazines,
brushes, maps, and a host of other
.things. Of these not more than .25
actually earn as much money as they
could by manual labor. A handful
come up to the advertisements. The
other one hundred and twenty-five DO
NOT MAKE GOOD-and - failure to
make good often means to the work-
ing student the temporary or perman-
ent abandonment of his university
career.
Such conditions exist only because
of the failure to investigate the na-
ture of student - salesmanship and to
discriminate between legitimate and
fraudulent companies. For the bene-
fit of those students who have had no
previous experience with the different
varieties of sales companies which
draw upon .the-university student bod-
ies for their sales agents, I venture
the. following statements which apply
to most types of student-salesmanship.
In doing so, I hope that students who
are planning to make salesmanship
their summer work, will investigate
more thoroughly the nature of indiy-
idual companies.
Only a chosen few have the quali-
fications of a successful salesman and
as yet the article is to be found which
"will sell itself," even with the aid of
"selling instructions."
The attitude of the general public to-
ward the "agent" is such that the stu-
dent must frequently put up with
slurs and abuse which is very dis-
tasteful and discouraging to ,any col-
lege men.
The "recruiting agents" of the sales
companies often misrepresent the
chances of making good by exagger-
ated and misleading statements of
previous records.
Sometimes the companies "guar-
antee" a certain salary or lump sum
for the summer's work. In every case
which I have known, these agreements
have been misleading and have been
no protection to the salesman.
Sales companies in many cases do
not conduct their-business with their
employees on a fair business basis.
Goods ordered by the agents from the
companies sometimes fail to be de-
livered; money sent by the agents in
payment for goods is often "never re-
ceived by the company," etc.
Sales companies frequently give a
misleading impression of their trust-
worthiness by referring to faculty

men, men of local repute, and to
names like those of President Wil-
son, Taft, Roosevelt, G. Stanley Hall,
etc.
Since these facts can be corrobo-
rated by Michigan men who have tried
salesmanship as summer work, would
not an investigation of the methods
of individual companies which are. op-
erating in Ann Arbor, by a student
.council committee or by a joint com-
mittee from the Union and the Y. M.j
C. A., be a matter of justice not only
to the student body but to any honest
companies which there may be?
Until such an investigation takes
place, those who are approached,
would do well to examine carefully
the contracts and agreements under
which they are asked to work and also
to get advice from faculty members,
students who have had experience, or
the employment bureaus of the Union
or the "Y" before entering upon any
kind of an agreement with sales com-
panies.
