Example text

I vowed that I wouldn’t allow it to happen again the next winter. In the spring of 1925 I began to hit my stride as a salesman. There was a German restaurant called Walter Powers on the south side of Chicago. The manager was a Prussian martinet named Bittner. He always listened politely to my sales pitch, but he always, just as politely, said “Nein, danke,” and dismissed me. One day when I called on the place I saw a gleaming Marmon automobile parked at the rear entrance. I was looking it over admiringly when a man came out of the restaurant and approached me.

A few days later I went to work selling Lily brand paper cups. I don’t know what appealed to me so much about paper cups. Perhaps it was mostly because they were so innovative and upbeat. But I sensed from the outset that paper cups were part of the way America was headed. I guess my father must have agreed. At least he raised no further objections, and Ethel and I were married. 3 A phenomenon of the early twenties that has passed into the folklore of great American frauds was the sale of underwater real estate in Florida.

Their mother ran the hotel, did all the cooking, and much of the housekeeping. She was a remarkably energetic woman. The sisters would canoe over to the pavilion in the evenings and hang around with our crowd. After the dancing was finished, we’d all go out for hamburgers or have wiener roasts or go canoeing in the moonlight. Ethel and I were an item in the group almost from the start. By the time the summer was over, we were getting very interested in each other. My next job was in Chicago’s financial district as a board marker on the New York Curb, as the market that became the American Stock Exchange used to be called.
