Prices

[merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small][merged small]

The contracts for the "Painter and Decorator" and for printed forms and supplies were awarded to the Burt-Haywood Company, of Lafayette. Their prices for forms and supplies were, on the average, as low as any quoted. Their price for the "Painter and Decorator" is $119.00 higher than that of the Mountel Press, the lowest bidder, and $54.00 higher than that of the Martin Printing Company, but the General Executive Board considered it the lowest and best bid, for the following reasons:

(1) The Constitution provides that the General Offices of the Brotherhood shall be in the city in which is located the firm to which the printing contract is awarded.

(2) The rent of suitable and adequate office space-at least 4,000 square feetin Cleveland or Cincinnati would exceed the saving that could be made in the printing by awarding it to one of the lower bidders. The bankers and business men of Lafayette furnish the Brotherhood with office room free of cost.

(3) The expense of moving would be great and we might again be subject to a similar expense and inconvenience two years hence under the provision of the Constitution referred to above.
