Notes / Description: 

Belmont Candy Company contracted with Evans to hire him as a traveling salesman. Due to the start of the war and that Evans was in new territory, his sales did not meet the companies expectations. The company reduced the amount they paid him; however, the contract "did not require him to sell any quantity or value of goods but obligated him to devote his whole time and energy exclusively to the interests of the candy company and there is no claim that he failed."
