Commercial Opportunities
- i
Ar. Opportunity to Build a Repeat
The Casterline Candy Company,
manufacturers of candies novelties
and toys, for the past five years
have authorized me to advise my
readers that they are putting on a
campaign to secure a specialty sales
man in each community in the coun
try. This firm wants only one repre
sentative in each community and if -
such representative qualifies the
Casterline Candy Company will pro- |
I tect the agent on all business coming
j from that community- The agents’,
j qualifications are that he should be
j well known in the community and be j
able to contact the merchants as'
j well as the consumers- This proposi- j
j tion appears to be a rapid seller, with (
i arge profit to agent and merchant
and with an enormous repeat possi
bility and it is on this repeat busi
ness that the agent will “cash in’’ on
a protected exclusive territory. Write
to the Casterline Candy Company,
4541 Ravenswood Avenue Chicago
immediately as only one agent in a
community will be placed. I might
mention the fact that their candy is
a penny seller with an opportunity
of securing free prizes on each penny
purchase including a large box of
0. H. Henry carmels and many other
novelties and specialty items
Another Exclusive Territory

the country- One man I recall start
ed with a small capital of $7-20 last
November and during the months of
November December January and
February the poorest season of the
year this man in Indiana has pur
chased close to $300 worth of Nu
Way Latex Bandages at whoesale
prices on which he was able to make
from one hundred to four hundred
per cent on his investment according
to the class of sales he made. Many
other agents are doing and have
done even better than this one who
started with only $7-20 I would rec
cmmend that every interested pro
spective agent write at once to the

to use colored agents particularly

proposition as they give the whites
and to ail pvospcclve agents who

Kay Products Company will send ab

the agent can with only one or two
orders a day make a living with earn
ings great-r than any ordinary job
Would likely pay in salary and with
out one single penny cm investment
on the part of the agent. This pro
position should be acted on at once
for the company ha: only a limited
number of these free selling kits to
send out and aiso gocause their
agents must be assigned now at the
beginning of their most profitable
sales season.
An Opportunity For Every
Many municipal administrations
of the United States have taken ad
vantage of the opportunity offered
to them by the C- W- A. to start in
tensive .surveys and investigations
into local traffic conditions with the
aid of competent staffs provided by
the Federal Administration to find
cut what causes automobile accid
This series of traffic surveys is
one of the most interesting develop
ments of the present day Federal aid
plan- They will show not only wh»t
kind of accidents happened and what
the cost was in death injury and
property damage but also what phy
sical conditions and human failures
helped to bring them about. These
will include anything from misplaced
traffic signal lights and improperly
banked turns to violations of the
speed laws- When the purveys are
finished city officials will know
where why when and how auto
mobile accidents are occurring in
their communities
With the information obtained im
provements can be made on the basis
of actual facts and no waste of mat
erial or man power will be involved
Sidney J, Williams vice president
of the National Safety Council is
Director of Safety for the C. W- A
and is head of the clearing house for
technical information on these pro
jects- According to Maxwell Halsey
Traffic Engineer of the National
Bureau of Casualty and Surety Un
derwriters who is Mr. Williams’ as
sistant in charge of the area for New
England New York and New Jersey
“Traffic surveys can be made profit
ably in any city of the United States
No city is too small or too large- If
the studies are made and their con
clusions followed a 50 per cent accid
ent reduction is entirely possible."
