Hall, MMlc Distribution:— B. M. Muehlen, Bugler 27 March 1937 • • * Tomorrow is Easter Sunday, one of the most important Feast Days in Christendom. It is the day which symbolizes new life, new hope—new ideals for countless millions of peoples of every nation and color, of every Faith and Creed. More than nineteen hundred years have faded into the past since the first Easter Sunday; on that Sunday morning in far-away Judea, Christ arose gloriously from the tomb in which he had lain for three days. On the Friday before he had been put to a disgraceful death by people who either would not or could not understand his teachings. No living personality, or personalities, have nearly approached the permanent imprint made on the minds of men by Christ, who was the foster Son of a lowly Jewish carpenter. During the thirty years He lived among men, He gave them rules for living that have had more effect on the peoples of the earth than all the written or spoken words since time began. And yet, if there had been no Easter Sunday, there would be no Christianity, no history as we know it, and the world would be quite a different world than the one we live in. That which He taught has been followed by billions who are now mere dust; more millions and millions of Christians now living believe this Man was not a mere man, but the Son of God. Tomorrow these vast numbers of men and women thruout the world will honor and celebrate the day which is next in importance to His birthday; Easter Sunday, like Christmas, should be a day filled with joy and peace. May yours be all of that. It may be worth while to point out briefly some of the difficulties that beset installment purchasers. It is not intended to discuss the merits of extended credit. Many necessities or "necessary luxuries" are sometimes are obtainable in no other way. It should be remembered that the motive of the installment seller is primarily to gain a, livelihood. This he cannot do by engaging in business at a loss. The seller's interests can be protected against loss only by a contract which will pass all risks to the purchaser. His motives are perfectly legitimate. The buyer's natural motives should lead him to read his contract thoroughly, determine the exact meaning of every provision and what risks it imposes upon him, and decide if he wishes to incur the risks and liabilities resulting from the proposed contract. Always Read Contract A written contract should never be signed without reading it for the reason that its meaning is interpreted by reference to the written words. Oral testimony, in case of litigation, is not admitted to vary the terms of the contract. That principle is definitely established in the law. It is, moreover, specifically stated in most contracts that the agreement is fully set forth in the written document. In some cases there is a provision that the agent who signs the contract has no authority to change its printed terms. All he is authorized to do is to fill in the blanks. If he tells you that any written part of the contract is not binding on you, you should conclude that he is definitely unreliable and probably unscrupulous. A purchaser who delayed in making all or part of a required payment would be subject to any forfeiture provisions that the contract might contain. Not Property of Purchaser For the added protection of the seller is is customary to provide in such contracts that an article is to remain the property of the seller until the last payment is made. The same provision is part of the statute law of some states. What of it? Just this — the purchaser, so long as any part of the price remains unpaid, since he does not own the article, cannot deal with it as if he did own it. If he is short of cash and needs money he cannot sell it or pawn it. If he should do either he has committed a crime. How will anyone know? Well, he can't produce it on demand of the seller should he be delinquent in his payments. If he pawns it, there is apt to be a register which the pawn broker is required to keep of all transactions, available for securtiy by anyone showing proper authority. The contract will probably provide that he must keep the article within certain limits, according to its nature. While more freedom would be allowed with an automobile, a sewing machine or a washing machine might on the other hand have to be kept at one address, unless the seller gave his written consent to move it.
