The Treasurer made his report and submitted a Financial Statement of the Companies books at the close of business, December 31, 1923.

On motion of E. P. Miller seconded by John Victor and unanimously approved, the officers reports were accepted as read and ordered filed.

On motion duly seconded and unanimously carried the present Directors as follows: N. D. Eller, W. H. Loyd, J. William Gayner, C. M. Guggenheimer, C. L. Snidow, John Victor, J. D. Owen, R. [C]. Watts, and D. H. Dillard were elected to serve on the Board for the ensuing year.

The Chairman called for any questions or criticisms which those present might have and the affairs of the Company were fully discussed.

Mr. Bell made the suggestion that in handling finished stock the practical installation of automatic machinery and other labor saving devices should be considered, thus cutting down expenses by eliminating some of the handling of the ware. He also recommended that the selling organization be perfected to the highest point of efficiency possible in order not to accumulate so much finished stock.

There being no further business the meeting adjourned.
