That is one basic reason why the
CIO has organized more than five

has won billions of dollars in wage
raises, why it has been able to
serve the people of America mere
than any other organization in tile
And it is a basic reason why tn>
CIO t°day is a great force for vie

and women of the CIO are able to

USE OF DEFENSE STAMPS OR
BONDS TO STIMULATE TRADE
BARRED SAYS BUREAU
Nse of defense stamps or bonds
as premiums in connection with
the stimulation of trade has been
barred under a policy adopted by
the Retail Advisory Committe of
the United States Treasury, ac
cording to an announcement by
Robert J- Bauer, president of the
National Association of Bette*
At the request of the Treasury’s
Retail Advisory Committee, the
Better Business Bureau through
out the United States will super
vise the enforcement of this policy
with retailers in all sections of the
country, Mr. Bauer said.
The new ruling states that De
fense Stamps and Bonds “shall be
sold for cash or on salary deduct
ion plan only; that under no cir
cumstances should defense bonds
or stamps be used as premiums,
discounts, gifts, trade stimulators,
or be in any way associated with
the promotion of merchandise”.
