RETURNING GOODS '
: EVIL IS DISCUSSED
Boston woman Arraigns the
Women of America for
AT EAOHEES' MEETING
Mary Schenck Woolman of Boston
arraigned the women of America on
the charge of flagrantly abusing the
"goods on approval" privilege of the
stores. She spoke before the home
economics section of the State
Teachers' association in the city
council chamber yesterday atterneon
"In one large store in Boston."she
said, "it is no unusual thing for $20,-
(IUU worth ot goods , to be returned
in a single day.
"1 know of a store that loses $30,
000 a year through the deterioration
of goods taken out on approval. I
.have stood and watched goods come
back to a store and the condition
some were in was shocking. Some
evening dresses had to be pressed.
for they had been worn. Some were
ill such condition they had to go
right to the bargain counter.
Store is Defied.
"1 know cases where dishonest
"people with charge accounts have
used rugs all wintetr on the pretext
that they wantted to try them and
couldn't make up their minds whether
to keep them, suits that had been
altered have been sent back and the
customer has defied the store to make
her keep them, utterly disregarding
the justice or right in the proposition.
Some have bought underwear and
worn it a week, then had it washed
and sent back.
"Not all women are like this, but
the good suffer for the unreasonable
ness and dishonesty of the bad.
Heads of big stores a few years ago
. began to take serious consideration
of charge accounts and goods on ap
proval plans. They seriously dis
cussed stopping these privileges. One
big department store here in the west
has stopped the goods on approval
privilege. It has big signs up stating
that goods positively cannot be sold
on approval. Other stores have
stopped the approval privilege on cer
tain classes of goods.
"Aside from the deterioration of the
goods, there is a great expense in
sending goods on approval. Nineteen
persons have to handle every order in
a store I know of and if the goods
are returned the transaction has to go
through those nineteen hands again.
It costs on an average 10 cents every
time the delivery wagon stops at a
"The modern department stores
give us 50 many privileges that we
. should take care not to abuse them."
In the Boards of Education pro
gram at the Central High school a
radical change in the rural school was
advocated to bring it to the system
of the city school. County superin
tendents should not be elected by political-parties,
but should hold their
offices permanently as long as they
do their wo'Nt well was the opinion of
those who spoke. , '
