PHILIPSBORN'S— Always First in Values, NOW Supreme in Service. For many years I was associated with one of Philipsborn's closest competitors. Today, by an unexpected turn of events, I find myself at the head of Philipsborn's—and I am very proud to have been thus honored. Throughout the mail order world, Philipsborn's have long been recognized for their ability to offer values which it was difficult, if not impossible, to match. Six months as President of this fine old institution have shown me the reason. I find that Philipsborn's have a wonderful Buying Organization—keen, capable, far-sighted and aggressive—as fine a body of merchandise men and style experts as I have ever known. The Buying Organization is operating with such remarkable efficiency that I have been able to concentrate my attention upon Service—which has always been my special hobby. My ideal of mail order service is for PHILIPSBORN'S to extend to each customer the same courtesies, the same promptness and care in filling orders and making adjustments which I would wish shown to my wife or my mother in their dealings with a mail order house. Every member of the organization, in every department, is doing everything possible to make our service still better—to eliminate faults—to give quicker attention to correspondence—to get merchandise to you more quickly, in short, to make PHILIPSBORN'S the most complete and efficient mail order house in America. In this issue of the Style Book, Philipsborn's are once more proving their leadership in styles and values. The remarkable showing of ultra-smart New York and Paris modes is the result of many months of planning and shopping. But just bear this one thing in mind: Pictures and prices do not tell the whole story. At Philipsborn's you will always find merchandise of sterling character; merchandise that will stand the test of wear; QUALITY is maintained, no matter what the price. I want you to feel free to write me at any time. I pledge my word to see that PHILIPSBORN'S guarantee of satisfaction or money back is carried out to the letter. I am here to serve PHILIPSBORN'S customers. My time, energy and service are devoted to this one task. Yours sincerely, [Hand-written signature of] Porter M. Farrell. [Photographic image of] PORTER M. FARRELL — PRESIDENT — Introducing Our New President. Porter M. Farrell, Philipsborn's new President, is known by name to millions of mail order shoppers throughout the United States, through his previous connection with other large institutions selling wearing apparel by mail. His many years of service to the mail order buying public have won for him a nation-wide reputation not only as a great executive, but a man who succeeds because he applies the golden rule in business. Mr. Farrell possesses to a marked degree those qualities of mind and heart which create confidence on the part of customers and inspire the utmost limit of loyalty among all who serve as his co-workers. He regards every customer as a personal friend and every order as a sacred trust. We feel that both ourselves and our customers are to be congratulated upon having Mr. Farrell as the new head of this time-honored institution. His fine record of service, his great ability as a merchandiser, insure greater values and better service to old customers and many thousands of new friends for Philipsborn's. [Page] D 3
