When I read that a Mr and Mrs Ralph Greve, both 43, son.

Th£ department should give her : citation! * * » • In Grace's column last week when she covered the moon 1 situation, there is one thing she forgot — moonshine. Now there are various aspects, and of course the first one to pop into one's mind Is the drink, or hootch as it is sometimes called. There is much to be said on the subject, but since she started, I'll let her finish it! Ont> might add moonshine carries a "glow", usually. When 1 gathered some, news from Mrs Ernest Williams she mentioned an uncle and aunt who are at Boynton Beach, Fla.,Boynton reminded me of the bashful professor in- the "Our Miss Brooks" T.V. show. What a cute program it was. Right now I am interested in the Perry Mason shows. I have ' read so .many "Whodonits" 'and especially like the Perry Mason ones. . * » . • I'll slick io good old beef, pork and chicken. Talk of rattlesnake meat and grasshopper snacks leave me cold. I was hoping Hay Potter could tell me what the snake meat was like, for he and lis son Don attended the Methodist Father and Son banquet last week, where this rare viand was served. But Don says he and his father passed up the chance and stuck with turkey. Web Orton had a box of grasshopper — what do you call it, meat? • It was brought to him by Mr and Mrs O. B. Laing when they returned from their Christmas vacation on the west coasjt with their spns David, Edd and families. When Lila Potter was installed as Worthy Matron in the Eastern Star lodge, it was a lovely gesture, the presenting of flowers by her little granddaughters Cindy and Kathy, daughters of Mr and rMrs Don Potter and Jean, daughter of Mr and Mrs Don McDonough, Schaller. Her son Don Potter also gave a vocal solo. Mrs McDonough -was present at the ceremony, too. » * » When I dialed the James Kolp residence for news the other morning, a pleasant masculine voice answered me. He was James Kolp Sr., Ida Grove, and he and his wife were here for the weekend. He was "baby sitting",, with his young grandchild. Jim Wyehor brought over two ore pieces of furniture I wanted here at G. S. I still haven't decided £o rent ray part furnished or unfurnished — depends largely on who comes along to just fill the bill. I've had many calls but no decisions made yet. These are the last things I'll be bringing over. I'm very cozy here and it looks very homelike.

OR i Bessie Jones GENERALLY SPEAKING, advertisers follow one of TWO methods of advertising. f THEY USE A SCATTERGUN type of approach. A dribble goes here, a dribble there; first it is one thing, then another; the outside salesman finds a bonanza here in his gimmicks; and at the end of the year she advertiser finds he has snent a considerable sum, yet has divided his efforts into so many small units that a really potent impact has been entirely missing. • THEY USE A CANNON! There is planning ahead, a preparation for the expenditure of advertising funds that lays a proper foundation. This advertiser uses a tried and true advertising medium - he chiefly uses his newspaper - and with sufficient space to command the attention that his advertising message deserves. This advertiser probably spends less in total than the Scattergun advertiser, yet he obtains far better and more consistent results. Of course there may be some that do little or no advertising, but in today's competitive merchandising field they are fewer and fewer. i One business man stepped into a location in Algona over 20 years ago, a location where two preceding businesses of the same type had bean forced to close their doors. He decided to use newspaper advertising consistently, and from the opening day HE DID. The first day he took in $37. BUT IN MORE THAN 20 YEARS HE HAS N OT FAILED TO HAVE AN AD IN HIS LOCAL NEWSPAPER EACH WEEK. He did not use the Scattergun method; HE USED THE CANNON, and jt has been most successful. , birth For The impact of The Cannon In Your Advertising Message, Your Newspaper Is The Answer!
