GOLDEN RULE ETHICS BASIS IN MOST LINES Professional Man, Manufacturer, and Retailer Talk to Kiwanians
Ethics -- of the professional man, the manufacturer and the retailer were discussed at the meeting of Kiwanis club at Conway Hotel Wednesday noon by three members of the club, Dr. E.L. Bolton, H.D. Purdy and Franklin J. Grist. The Golden Rule proved to be the fundamental basis of the ethics of all three lines of work.

In his talk on retail ethics, Mr. Grist explained the fur trade, saying that there is never a necessity of calling a wolf fur a fox, that frankness never blocks a sale. He spoke of some of nature's laws with reference to fur-bearing animals, and pointed out that the center of the fur trade is now in the United States while before the war it was in Europe.

Letter to Dorothy Grist from Hattie R. Powers
Letter to Dorothy Grist from Hattie R. Powers

My dear little Dorothy:


You are six years old today. I would like to be there to give you six kisses. I send you a handkerchief to keep your little nose clean and a pair of mittens to keep the little fingers warm. I miss you more and more every day and am quite sure you miss me. How happy I would be to have you here with me. You must learn to write so you can write me a letter. I hope you will be a very happy little girl today. You remember last year I was with you. I suppose you wear the white silk I gave you today. I can imagine how sweet you look. Accept much love and many wishes for a happy birthday.


Yours lovingly,

Grandma
