It's the single best thing we ever did. Walton. He'd say, 'I'll meet you for breakfast at six o'clock.' And we'd say, 'Mr. Walton, there's noreason to meet that early. We can't even get into the buildings that early.' And he'd just say, 'We'll findsomething to do.' For three years longer he worked, experimenting with models, contributing essays and other valuable data to French papers on the subject of aeronautics. His gains were ill health, poverty, and neglect, and at the age of thirty a pistol shot put an end to what had promised to be one of the most brilliant careers in all the history of flight. I can tell you this, though: after a lifetime of swimming upstream, I am convinced that one of the realsecrets to Wal-Mart's phenomenal success has been that very tendency. Many of our best opportunitieswere created out of necessity. The things that we were forced to learn and do, because we started outunderfinanced and undercapitalized in these remote, small communities, contributed mightily to the waywe've grown as a company. Had we been capitalized, or had we been the offshoot of a large corporationthe way I wanted to be, we might not ever have tried the Harrisons or the Rogers or the Springdales andall those other little towns we went into in the early days. It turned out that the first big lesson we learnedwas that there was much, much more business out there in small-town America than anybody, includingme, had ever dreamed of. "I was sitting there at the conference reading the paper, and I had a feeling somebody was standing overme, so I look up and there's this grayish gentleman standing there in a black suit carrying an attach case. In the spelling of Indian words and names I have endeavoured to follow mainly the more modern plan, adopted of late years, except in the case of a very few words which are practically Anglicised. Miss Tucker鈥檚 own spelling of Indian words and names varies extremely; the word being often given differently when occurring twice in a single page. The spelling has therefore been altered throughout her correspondence. To avoid confusion in the minds of English readers, I have also taken the same liberty with letters from some others who have not adopted the modern mode. Rhoda came, in answer to her father's summons, very calmly. She had, of course, expected it. She had quite got over the agitation of the interview with her lover, and was her usual sweet, placid self again. Yes; she said Mr. Diamond had asked her to marry him, and she was willing to marry him if her father would consent. She believed Mr. Diamond loved her very much, and she liked him very much. She had been afraid of him once because he was so very learned and clever, and seemed rather proud and stern. But he was really extremely gentle when you came to know him. She was sure he would be kind to her. Don't do a hula on Wall Street. It's been done. Think up your own stunt. All of this is more important,and more fun, than you think, and it really fools the competition. "Why should we take those cornballs atWal-Mart seriously"RULE 7: LISTEN to everyone in your company. And figure out ways to get them talking. The folks onthe front linesthe ones who actually talk to the customerare the only ones who really know what's goingon out there. You'd better find out what they know. This really is what total quality is all about. To pushresponsibility down in your organization, and to force good ideas to bubble up within it, youmust listen towhat your associates are trying to tell you. An end of it, I suppose, so far as Heath is concerned. But I doubt we shall hear more of the matter in the office. Encourage your associates to hold a stake in the company. Offer discounted stock, and grant themstock for their retirement. It's the single best thing we ever did. The Rheims Aviation Meeting, at which the Gordon-Bennett race was flown, also saw the first appearance of the Morane 鈥楶arasol鈥?monoplane. The Morane monoplane had been for some time an interesting machine as being the only type which had no fixed surface in rear to give automatic stability, the movable elevator being balanced through being hinged about one-third of the way back from the front edge. This made the machine difficult to fly except in the hands of experts, but it was very quick and handy on the controls and therefore useful for racing purposes. In the 鈥楶arasol鈥?the modification was introduced of raising the wing above the body, the pilot looking out303 beneath it, in order to give as good a view as possible.
