Top Guardian Seller

Congratulations to Beryl Miller of the Northern Branch of the CPA in Adelaide as winner of the Top Seller competition. The competition was held as part of the celebrations of the 1500th issue of party paper since its first issue in December 1971.

The competition was based on a points system, with one point for each Guardian sold during the month of May and additional points for signing up new subscriptions. Beryl sold 139 copies of the paper and got one new three-month subscription, giving her a total 141 points.

Beryl is a well-deserved winner, she is a regular seller of the paper to trade union offices, she has regular round of customers and never misses an opportunity at rallies and meetings or in the street or outside a factory. There will be an interview with Beryl in a future issue of The Guardian.

Congratulations to Richard Titelius, a member of the Perth branch, who was runner-up with an outstanding performance of 116 sales. Richard is also a regular seller, every lunch time he out on the street selling papers. Richard is also a regular contributor to the paper and like Beryl, never misses an opportunity for a sale.

Beryl and Richard are sustaining a long tradition of selling the party press. We need more Beryls and Richards to boost the sale of the paper. We also need more contributors to report on their struggles and send in their photos.
