He makes sure that everything we sell is of the best possible quality at the lowest possible price - - - that it is packed properly and shipped promptly. At Left—The price reduction on these bloomers (see below), is indicative of the big values we are offering on everything-to-wear for all the family. At left—Scene in our dress-inspection department. When a dress leaves Miss Hauerwas' hands, you can be sure it's ready for you to put on and wear - - - for Miss Hauerwas has been in charge of our examiners for years.

We make tests on all fabrics described in our catalog, so you can depend upon everything we say about them. We endeavor to describe everything truthfully, honestly, and without exaggeration. Below—One of our 50 shoe-inspectors. Every shoe is closely examined by a trained inspector to make sure it is up to our high standard specifications. Our shoe-quality will please you and our fine styles will amaze you. Perfect fit is guaranteed. Above—You can have twice as many fine rayon bloomers in 1931 as in 1930 without spending any more for them. Our prices are reduced about half. Three pairs in 1930 cost $1.94.

Our low prices add to your enjoyment. Same Good Shoes for Almost a Dollar Less! - - - in 1930 we sold our Famous R. F. D. work shoes for $3.79. Every man who bought them knows they were cheap at our price. In 1931 our low price for the same shoes is only $2.99 - - - nearly a dollar saved. You'll find big price-cuts through-out this book! Not only have we reduced our shoe-prices far below prevailing levels - - - we have improved our quality far above prevailing standards. That's why you enjoy savings when you make this your family shoe store. At right—The "Fadeometer"—It tells our experts if a fabric is fast to sunlight. Then we wash it to make sure washing will not fade it. We never claim Fast Color for a fabric unless we know, by actual test, that it is Fast Color. Above—Mr. Frank Ritzer tailoring expert. He examines every man's and boy's suit we sell. Our Style Clad suits fit perfectly, because they're made right. - - - And because they're lower in price, thousands of men trade here and save.

PRICES LOWER [QUALITY BETTER….] It's Quality That Makes Our BIG VALUES… BEST. DID YOU ever have a story to tell that was so important you found it hard to put it into words? We have just such a story to tell you - - - we've used pictures to help us. The pictures show you some of the folks, here at the Chicago Mail Order Company, who look out for your interests—who make sure that the quality of everything we sell is just what we say it is, and better than you could possibly expect for the price you pay. We'll admit that when you see how low the prices in the catalog are, you will wonder about the quality - - - why even our own organization was astonished. But—make no mistake—this is a New Era of Value. Wheat is down - - - Corn is down - - - Cotton is down. The price of everything is lower, and certainly you expect lower prices of us - - We are giving them to you—have even cut our own small profit to make them very low. Yet our high standard of quality has been maintained, and in most instances improved. Why, in many cases, you get twice as much value for your dollar as you got last year. We wish it were possible for you to go through our immense building and personally examine every piece of merchandise. Then you would agree with us that it's quality that makes our low prices lowest - - - that it's quality that makes our big values best - - - and that never before and nowhere else, has it been possible to buy so much quality for so little money! ——— IT'S EASY TO ORDER. It is so easy to order from this catalog! In the comfort and convenience of your own home, uninfluenced by sales persons, you can choose from our wide varieties of styles, colors, and prices, assured of absolute satisfaction. Everything you buy of us must be right, or we make it right. Order at our risk - - - under the protection of our guarantee on page 3. ——— Up Goes the Quality—Down Goes the Price on Silk Hosiery! At Right—Ethel Swanson, who buys our women's hosiery looking at a pair of our Full Fashioned Pure Silk Hose. She's delighted because while our old 1930 price was 97¢, in 1931 our new low price is only 69¢ a pair - - - and she's giving you the same high quality for about 30¢ less. All our hosiery, men's, women's, and children's, is of high quality, far beyond what our low prices would lead you to expect. Above—Ernest Stockfisch. At right—Celia A. Traub, "customer-shoppers". They buy merchandise from thousands of competitors, and compare qualities and prices with our own goods. You know we guarantee, that style for style, and quality for quality, our prices are always lowest. The findings of our shoppers make it absolutely certain that our guarantee to you is kept in letter and in spirit. If you beat our values, we refund the difference in cash. Above—Our Merchandise Committee, inspecting a line of gloves from France. There is no guesswork about our purchases - - - the best minds of the organization are devoted to the proposition that we must buy for less, take less profit, give better quality and sell for less money. Above—Mrs. Anna Hargrave, Chief Merchandise Examiner. Style, quality, and value in woman's wearing apparel are her specialty. She is your representative—a woman judging for women. Also, her entire force of examiners is keyed up to the achievement of sending you merchandise that is flawless, correct in size, and perfect in fit. You can depend upon her knowledge and long experience. Silk Dresses for the Price Paid for Cotton Last Year - - - for a beautiful, All Silk dress of this same quality, our old 1930 price was $2.98. Our New 1931 low price is only 99¢ - - - an amazing reduction. Silk dresses for grown-ups and kiddies now cost less than half as much as they cost last season. Yes, happy days are here again, and we invite you to share the savings and enjoy the fine quality of everything we offer. Hard to Believe… But It's True! 1930—$12.50, 1931—$9.95. Imagine! An All Wool Cheviot, genuine Style Clad suit for $9.95. Yet you'll find bargains like this or every page of our Catalog. We put more wool into the garment and take less profit out of the price - - - that's why thousands of men and young men make this their headquarters for stylish, long-wearing clothing for themselves and their families. You may buy here in absolute confidence and wear whatever you buy with becoming pride. CHICAGO MAIL ORDER CO., Chicago, Ill. Everything we sell is good quality. We guarantee it. Page 5

4-H GIRL WINS 6-WEEK TRIP TO EUROPE Given by The Chicago Mail Order Co. "The 4-H Style Queen - - - The Dress Revue Champion of the Nation," is the laurel wreath of honor conferred upon Miss Viola Mach, 17-year old club member of Tabor, South Dakota, at the Ninth National Girls' and Boys' 4-H Club Congress held in Chicago on December 2, 1930. For this achievement she will receive a free trip to Europe in June, 1931. Her state leader will accompany her as chaperone. Both trips are provided by the Chicago Mail Order Company. In addition to this national prize, the Chicago Mail Order Company provided watches for dress division winners, trips to the National 4-H Congress at Chicago for state champions, and medals for county winners. Of the 830,000 members of 4-H Clubs engaged in projects under the direction of the Agricultural Colleges and the United States Department of Agriculture during 1930, 320,000 were enrolled in clothing clubs. At local, county, and state fairs, hundreds of representatives of these enthusiastic and resourceful young people modeled in the clothing they themselves had made. Miss Mach came up through these contests and was chosen to be the national winner. Miss Mach seems to have the habit of achieving success in whatever she undertakes. She has been President of her local club; has edited several 4-H publications; has won numerous "firsts" on her exhibits of foods and clothing and in demonstration work at county and state fairs; and has been a leader of younger girls' 4-H Clubs and other public-spirited community activities. She is now a student at the South Dakota State College of Agriculture, and is embarked on a career which will be exceedingly helpful to her community."4-H" stands for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health. The Clubs develop the youth of rural America and teach them to meet life's problem in a practical, common-sense way. The Chicago Mail Order Company finds pleasure in co-operating with this splendid cause, and subscribes to the 4-H Club Motto: "Make the Best, Better," and urges Girls and Boys to join in the movement. What 4-H 1929 Prize Winners Saw in Europe. The pictures to the right are just a few of the many interesting places in Europe visited in June, 1930, by Nancy Grossboll and Mary Jeanette Erwin, of Menard County, Illinois, 1929 winners of the Chicago Mail Order Company's award to the National Clothing Demonstration champions. They were accompanied on this trip by Mrs. Carl Kirby, their local leader and Miss Mary McKee, their state leader. The memory of this trip will live with them always, and will spur them on to greater achievement and to broader service to their community, and to the 4-H Club movement. Outfit that won the 1930 4-H Style Revue. To the left: Viola Mach, winner of the 1931 Chicago Mail Order Company Trip to Europe, in the three-piece ensemble suit she made and modeled at the 4-H Club National Style Revue, when she won the Wool Dress division championship for which she received a beautiful gold wrist watch, and the Grand Championship for which she was awarded the trip to Europe. The suit was made of soft blue-green wool basketweave material, with blouse of eggshell silk flat crepe, and undergarments to match. The hat and purse were of the same material as the suit. It is difficult to tell here how beautifully the outfit was made, how suitable it was to Miss Mach's type, how it in every way measured up to the high standard set by the 4-H Club judges. A copy of Miss Mach's own story of how she won the prize will be sent to any girl who sends us a self-addressed stamped envelope. [Photographic images of the journey through Europe, note by M. K.] Notre Dame, Paris, Viewed by 4-H Club Prize Winners. 4-H Club Prize Winners in Holland. Picturesque Windmills in Holland Thrilled the 4-H Club Prize Winners.

Style-creation it seems, is a science as well as an art, in that certain results are always achieved under certain given conditions. For instance every time a designer places an intriguing ostrich pom-pon on a chapeau it's certain to be a style-sensation! Every time! Every daughter of Eve knows there's witchery in such a cheek-caressing pom-pon. Here it's of two-tone ostrich, and beautifies a bicorne of lustrous Pedaline Braid with brim edging of twisted two-tone Visca Braid. Even the hat without the pom-pon would be a sensation, for it's stunning and very artful, with a most unusual creased brim. A bargain! State color and headsize. Please measure your head.

ANYONE CAN TAKE YOUR MEASURE. We Guarantee PERFECT FIT. Simply Follow these FEW DIRECTIONS. For MEN'S, YOUNG MEN'S …and YOUTHS' CLOTHING! These instructions for measuring are so simple that we urge you not to guess at sizes. Measure according to our directions; if possible have someone help you, to be sure you are right, because it is difficult to take your own measurements without bending or twisting. The picture shows how you should stand. Follow these instructions and you will get perfect-fitting garments. Be sure to mention on your order your height and weight. Stand Naturally for Chest Measure. To take your chest size, see measurement No. 1 in illustration. Take over vest if measuring for either suits or overcoats. Make no extra allowances. First empty your pockets. Then place tape-measure all around body, over shoulder blades in back, close up under arms, and bring forward. Have someone take your measurements for you rather than attempt to measure yourself. Be sure tape-measure lies straight across shoulder-blades in back, not above or below them. Don't forget to stand naturally, with arms hanging at sides in an easy, natural way. Do not expand chest or hold breath. Jot down on back of our order blank, in the space provided, the exact number of inches shown on tape-measure. When having your measurements taken, as in illustration, do not throw out your chest or hold your breath. Neither should you stand with your weight on one leg. The proper pose is merely to stand naturally erect. It is never necessary to make any extra allowances. All our garments are cut over full size patterns, so if you follow instructions, our expert tailors and fitters guarantee absolutely perfect fit. Then Measure Both Waist and Inseam. WAIST—(See measurement No. 2 at left). First remove belt if you are wearing one. Then place tapemeasure all around waist, over your trousers, just above hips. Draw the tape comfortably tight - - - not too tight - - - just tight-enough to take out the slack. Then jot down exact number of inches in space provided on our order blank. INSEAM— (See measurement No. 3 at left). The end of tape must be placed close up in the crotch. Then, see that it is drawn down along the inseam of trousers to the desired length. This measurement is important, and should be accurate, because the proper hang of trousers depends upon it. Please Do Not Guess at Measurements …TAKE THEM! How to Order BOYS' SUITS. Do not send us measurements taken from the boy's garments. MEASURE THE BOY HIMSELF. Then order the suit in age conforming closest to all his measurements. ORDER BY AGE ONLY. The same measurements are necessary in determining your boy's size, as we show above for youth's or men's clothing. There are three sizes to take: No. 1—Chest; No. 2—Waist; No. 3—Inseam. Then refer to chart below and select suit in age that comes closest to these measurements. Your boy may be large or small for his age, but you will find measurements, reading from left to right across chart below, that conform closely to his measurements. Order his suit in that AGE and it will fit him properly. If you find your boy's measurements larger than the chart shows, you will have to make your selection from our young men's suit lines. Our suits are made to measurements long established by the best tailors as correct for boys of average size and build. Just remember when measuring, that the chest sizes shown below are not measured over the coat, but should be taken over your boy's shirt, as in illustration. In measuring for overcoats, mackinaws, raincoats, or lumberjacks, always measure chest over blouse or shirt, not over coat or suit. Then order in age conforming closest to his chest measurements. Do not make any extra allowances. If these simple instructions are followed the garments will fit perfectly. MAKE NO EXTRA ALLOWANCES IN MEASURING. Age… 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18. Chest Measure… 22, 22½, 23¼, 24, 24¾, 25½, 26¼, 27, 27¾, 28½, 29¼, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34. Waist Measure… 23, 23½, 23½, 24, 24, 24½, 25, 25½, 26, 27, 27½, 28, 29, 29½, 30, 30½. Longie Inseam… 13½, 15, 16½, 18, 19½, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31. To Measure for Men's or Boys' HATS and CAPS. Place tapemeasure all around head, just as shown in the illustration above. The scale below shows the size to order, according to head measure in inches. Boys' Hat sizes range by eighths, from 6⅛ to 7. Men's 6¾ to 7½. Head. Inches… 19⅛, 19⅜, 19¾, 20⅛, 20½, 20⅞, 21¼, 21⅝, 22, 22⅜, 22¾, 23⅛. Hat Size… 6⅛, 6¼, 6⅜, 6½, 6⅝, 6¾, 6⅞, 7, 7⅛, 7¼, 7⅜, 7½. Always State Size Wanted. Here's How to Measure for GLOVES. It's a simple matter to measure for correct glove size. Just hold your hand flat, with fingers close together, and pass tape-measure around hand, in front of thumb and behind knuckles, as shown in the illustration above. Do not draw tape-measure too tight. The number of inches your hand measures is the size glove to order. This applies to men's, women's, girls', and boys' gloves. For infants or small children, order by age of child. Always State Size Wanted. CHICAGO MAIL ORDER CO., Chicago, Ill. Everything we sell is good quality. We guarantee it. Page 241
