Mad Dash There was a mad dash for the .shelter of Bascom Lodge where the speaking portion of the program was hastily rescheduled. Many of the crowd received a thorough drenching before they made their way inside, The lodge and porch were crowded to more than capacity. "" Herbert Mahar of Adams, general chairman of the affair, was master of ceremonies. Department Cmdr. of the WWI veterans, William E. Campbell of Boston, conducted the ritualistic portion of the ceremony 'at the base of the Veterans' Memorial. Deputy Commander Campbell also placed! " a wreath there. A firing squad from Dr. George L. Curran VFW _ Post, North Adams, fired a volley of shots and a post bugler sounded taps with the echo provided by the severe claps of thunder. Then came the downpour. In the lodge, the speaking program was highlighted by Cmdr. Campbell's remarks that the 140- foot granite monument erected in the early 1930's by the Common wealth in "grateful recognition of the loyalty and sacrifice of its sons and daughters in war time" has been allowed to deteriorate to its present dangerous condition that has necessitated its closing to all visitors. He reminded the audience that representative war veterans' groups have "an obligation (o be faithful to those departed and this memorial service is but one small token of this obligation." dies Adams Group Senior Vice Cmdr. Paul Dibble of Granby, praised what lie termed "the valuable role that Adams veterans' groups have played in prodding stale legislators until they have induced them to appropriate the $306,000 deemed necessary for the memorial's restoration."

Campbell also praised Mr. • Mahar for the role he has played in alerting the public to the condition of the monument and noted that the general chairman has been active in veterans' affairs ever since World War I, is a national senior vice com- mander oi the 104th Infantry Veterans' Assn. and holds other offices in veterans' groups. Mr. Mahar asserted that "It-is not just one organization which h=>s made legislators' action possible, it is the combined efforts of all of them and is a good example of what can be done when all veterans get together and make their voices heard above the call of politics."

Where but in print can you gel so close to the advertising messages thai interest, you? Where else can a woman clip the coupons and recipes that inlrigue her? Or tear out lips to Cry on leftovers? Or mark, for future marketing, any of the colorful food ideas which strike her fancy? And where else can she circle and compare the colors and styles of clothing and furnishings that appeal to her? Where else, in fact, can rt;y message be re-run at will by an interested audience? So make sure a good part of youradvcrtising message gets into print. Let somebody's eyes linger over it as long as they like. Let somebody's scissors clip it free of competition. And then watch someone's pocket or purse cany it to the place of purchase.
