(l)The result being, we sell additional
pounds every round of sales; (2) The
practice has been educational in that it
focuses the grower's attention to the
value of quality and proper handling;
(3) It serves as an incentive to the
growers, when it is possible, to sell in
heavier lots instead of making useless
extra trips to market a small crop; (4)
That the growers by selling direct to an
ESTABLISHED MARKET save the
buyer labor and gas expenditures inci

the same time the grower is protected

We Are Paying
The Atlantic Company has, for ovr a year,
overcome extreme difficulties of transpor
tation and rationing in order to continue
serving you with Atlantic Ale and Beer.
Now, through circumstances beyond our
control the shortage of Tires, Gasoline,
Trucks and Containers we arc forced to
stop. Our investment in time, effort, dis
tribution, merchandising and advertising is
lost to us for the present at least. You can
well understand that, with a great sales
lead in this territory, it is a sad day for
us when we have to give it up. We realize
that it is a sad day for you too, in losing
the pleasure of your favorite beverages
Atlantic Ale and Beer. Wartime Con
ditions and circumstances beyond your
control and ours are responsible. We leave
you with regret we hope to return and
soon. Please remember us.
