How did you and your partner divide up the work?
I was going to take care of the editorial side and
advertising, publicity, and promotion; Klopfer was going to
run the office and supervise production; he was going to run
the inside. We were going to divide the selling, because Don
was a very good salesman, too, and everybody has always loved
Don. He's one of the nicest men that ever lived. In all these
years when the business was growing and growing, Donald was
always the one that anybody who was in trouble came to. I'd
be too impatient.
You complemented one another.
How about the financial aspects? Did you handle that or
did you both?
Well, there weren't any problems. The money began pouring
in right away. The first objective was to give my uncle his
500 shares back as fast as we could. We wanted to get that
off our chest. As I say, we gave him 100 back at a time.
Did you each take a salary?
Yes, we took a salary.
