The Need for Study. - There are still a few men whose opinions upon other subjects are worth considering, who ap patently believe that anyone who is reasonably intelligent, can, without preparation, become a successful purchasing agent over night. I want to drive home the fact that it is just as impossible for a man without preparation so to spend money that he will best serve his firm, as it is successfully to follow any other trade or profession without preparation. It is equally impossible for the purchasing agent to continue to grow if he does not continue to study.
Technique Of Other Professions. - The technique of any profession or occupation might, I suppose, be so boiled down that it could be stated in very few words. In the last analysis the whole technique of the lawyer is his knowledge of the basic principles of justice, as popularly administered, coupled with the ability to find and suitably present data concerning relevant cases which have been decided in the past. The whole technique of the surgeon might be summed up as the knowledge of the human machine, its ailments and the most modern remedies for those ailments, coupled with a more or less pleasing bedside manner. The whole technique Of the chemist is capable of being condensed into the knowledge of the inherent qualities Of the materials he works with, under varying conditions, and the actions and reactions that may, or may not, take place under certain conditions.
