ETHICS OF REALTY
G. G. Wallace Says the Public
Needs to Be Educated as
Well as the Agents.
OWNERS MUST TOTE FAIR
"The public needs to be educated
to the ethics of real estate deals as
well as the agent himself," said Sec
retary G. G. Wallace of the Omaha
Real Estate board following the last
meeting of the board when "Ethics"
Mr. Wallace said the discussion
Srought out the fact that often the
customer has vastly less respect for
the ethics or the honor of a deal than
the agent. The discussions brought
out the fact that a prospective buyer
will often go to a real estate dealer
and find what property he has listed
for sale. He will go with the real
estate man to see the property and
will negotiate with him for a time
until he gets his lowest price, and
will then go to the owner and seek
to deal directly.
Again the owner will often over
step the bounds of ethics by listing a
piece of property with an agent for
sale and then secretly deal directly
with prospective buyers. Cases of
this kind have recently come up,
when the owner sold his property
direct to the buyer after he had listed
it exclusively with a certain agent.
Such transactions have frequently led
to suits brought by the agent against
the owner to recover the commission
he felt he should have had for the
sale. In many cases a real estate
man . spends money advertising a
piece of property after it has been
exclusively listed with him, and this
complicates the situation still further
when the owner breaks over and sells
the property direct after he has en
gaged an agent to sell it for him.
Salesman Club to Put
On a Big Movie Show
"The Troubles of a Stort keeper and
How to Stop Them," a four-reel mo
tion picture film will be presented
for the first time in Omaha Monday
night before the members of the Com
mercial Salesmen's club. Because of
the special nature of the film sales
people and others employed in the
stores of the city, as well as regular
members of the Commercial club,
have been invited to attend.
This film, produced by the Essanay
company for The National Cash
Register company of Dayton, 0., was
secured by the president, Joseph Bar
ker, of the Salesmen's club, through
Itr. Whitehouse, local agent for The
National Cash Register company. It
will be accompanied by a lecture by
R. C. Routsong, who will bring out
the points of the film that are of spe
cial interest to merchants.

Realtors Jealously Guard
Their Patented Title
The realtors are jealous of the use
of their name. It has been ditficult so
tar to persuade the public that every
man who claims to be an agent for
the sale of real estate is not a realtor.
There is also a disposition to insist
that those who carry the name shall
live up to its claims.
