PAGE SIX HOPE) STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, September 6, 1938 Earn a Living Moving Houses fty NBA Service LAKE MlNNETONKA, Minn.—If a girl has her health, and is fairly strong, there is no need for her to take her chin in her hsnd to think about how she's g*ing to earn her silk stockings and her filet mignon. She can always make her living in the house moving business, according to Evelyn Krause, 26, of Mound, Minn., which is right "By the Waters of Minnetonka. Miss Krause is perhaps the only experienced woman house mover in the picturesque district famed in the song. For a dozen years or more she has been jacking up lake cottages, and moving them from one stop to another. If house moving lapses, she turns her hand to dray work, juggling furniture on and off moving vans, hauling sand, gravel and water. Plays Football Oe of the five daughters of Mr. and Mrs. William Krause of Mound, Miss Krause started her moving and dray- ing business svhile a student at the Mound High School. When other girls her age were taking care of children to make pin money, F.velyn borrowed j her father's team and plowed and hired out to turn up garden patches for neighbors and summer residents. For recreation she came out for football practice, playing with such Mound classmates as Sheldon Beise, now as-_ sistant coach for Minnesota's glittering Golden Gophers, Milton Bruhn. on the coaching staff at Amherst, arid Walter Ohde, a football ' coach at j Anoka, Minn. | When Mr. Krause turned-in his team for a truck, daughter Evelyn slipped in, easily, gracefully behind the wheel. In no time at all she had picked up several draying jobs. . Prefers.Woman Helpers Now, she has built up a business that keeps her busy eight months of the 1 year.

B. Matthews. . . . Tall, spare, with pompadoured thin gray hair, professorial spectacles and natty blue serge suit, Matthews speaks tensely dramatically, and even in oratorical flights as he makes an able exposition of Communist strategy and technique. The zealot's gleam i.s in his eye while he "exposes" "united front" groups he once helped organize. . . . Net result is to nail down previous testimony that Communists like to dominate organizations. Matthews, admitting he once sought to cover up Communist affiliations with "united front" groups, now stretches points the other way, . . . He is vice president of Consumers' Research, devoted to telling people how to buy. . . . Consumers' Research employes went on strike; its owners charged "Communism," Strikers organized "Consumers' Union" and Matthews, a competitor, charges this and other consumer organization had Com- iiuiist origin. . . . But Matthews, ncv- r a Communist party member, tells hir writer he began to pull away from ctive association with Communists ong before the Consumers' Research trike. He says the Russian trials anc "A dispatch from Buenos Aires says that Lily Pons won an unprecedented ovation at her farewell concert here. That's pretty good for an opera singer's very first farewell concert.

Some statistician has figured that one person out of every 500 in the world is a leper. The other 499 don't hang on your lapels after two beers. These being busy days in alliancem- forming circles in Europe, the proper form of leave-taking over there becomes "Pacts Vobiscum." For a dozen years Evelyn Krausc has been jacking up houses and moving them from one spot to another. til the ground locks in the fall, she's busy jerking Spanish villas and Cape Cod cottages from one spot to another, transferring households from town 'to the lake and vice versa. She hires Mound neighbors for helpers. often housewives anxious to turn their hands .to a piece of spending money. though her father is chief of the volunteer fire department, never has she She prefers the latter because they're less apt to resent tking orders from a woman, she said. Next to shifting houses around on rollers, the hardest part of her work is to move electric refrigerators. Delicate pieces of furniture, the kind the lady of the house wraps in cellophane, are no favorites with her, cither. Not that she has broken anything, she hastens 'to add. But she admits that during her career she has kicked an heirloom or two. Five feet seven inches tall, and tipping the'scales between 120 and 125 pounds, Miss Krause has never had any trouble keeping her grammar school figure. Playing ball, swimming, and hiking help her to keep her weight down, she believes. The part she enjoys most about her work is driving the truck. "It's nice easy work," she says, "and it keeps me out in the open." Close to her heart is an ambition to drive the Mound fire truck. But al- been allowed so much as to shine the brass on the hook-and-ladder.

II Both decided to grow tomatoes. But when 11 their tomatoei were ripe, OD and AD had II different ideas as to how they should sell —II them. This is the story of what happened. How OD and AD Sold Their Tomatoes andtheTQ OD filled baskets with his tomatoes and put them in a wagon and drove to town. He went up and down the streets looking /or •people who wanted to buy tomatoes. Some days'he sold all. Some days he sold only a few. When the season was over, he found he had made just enough to live on. AD thought there must be a letter way to sell his tomatoes. He knew he must tell people about them, but he decided he could never sell very many tomatoes if he talked to people one at a time. So he used one of the simplest forms of ADVERTISING. He built a itand by the side of the road where many people passed. lie put Up 9 sign that said: "AD's big, red, ripe, juicy tomatoes." Be- •ause so many people saw the sign, enough people stopped to buy so that he sold all his ripe tomatoes every day. Many who bought, remembering his name on the sign, came back again and again. When the season was over, he had mo*»y i« lie bank. . . • One day AD heard that tomato juice was healthful and good to drink. He thought it would also be convenient to handle, to sell, and to serve in the home. He told OD about it. The next year both decided to make and sell tomato juice. How ODand AD Sold Their , Tomato Juice OD's wife squeezed tomatoes all day and put the juice in bottles. OD took it to town 'and went from door to door, looking JOT people who wanted to buy tomato juice. In a .whole day he could call at only about SO homes. As most people had never heard of tomato juice and did not know how good it was, he sold only a few bottles each day. AD felt sure there was a better way to mak« and sell his tomato juice. He took some money from the bank and bought 2 shiny new press that squeezed out juice easily and quickly. He put the juice in bottles that could be tightly scaled. He had labels printed for the bottles, reading: AD's PURE TOMATO JUICE. He went to the grocery stores in towiu where many •people came every day, an« asked the grocers to put a few of his botda on their counters. Then he put an advertisement in newspapers read by tltoutanJr of people. The advertisement said: "Enjoy the refreshing t«te of AD'S PUM TOMATO JUICE, pressed from big, red, vine- lipened Tomatoes. Good to drink and good for you. At your favorite grocery store." Because so many people read about it, enough people asked for it to exhaust the supply quickly. And remembering AD's name on the label they came back and asked for it again. So AD bought tomatoes from his neighbors and .made more tomato juice to supply the demand. What OD and AD Did The Next Year OD and his wife decided that if they were going to make any money, they would have to work harder. So she got up earlier in the morning and picked tomatoes and squeezed and bottled juice all day. OD spent a longer day in town trying to sec more people in order to sell more bottles. But, even though OD and his wife worked long and hard, they could not make any money. AD now saw how true it was that the more people he told about his tomato juice, the more he sold. So he advertised in other cities, telling women how good tomato juice was for their families to drink. He also sent salesmen to call on grocers. He got so many orders that he arranged to buy tomatoes from hundreds of other farmers, built a bigger building, bought more equipment, more bottles nnd labels, and employed more people. AD knew that, because his name was on every bottle, he must always maintain the high quality of his product. And, because he did this, women soon insisted on AD's PURE TOMATO JUICE. AD already had found that trie more he advertised and the more bottles he sold, th« less it cost him to put up each bottle. Therefore, as his advertising was extended all over the country and his sales increased, he reduced the price. Thus more and more people could afford to enjoy tomato juice, and, although his profit per bottle was now very small indeed, he sold so many bottles that he had a very fine business. So both AD and his customers were benefited. AD tells OD how an Idea Became an Industry-through ADVERTISING ONK DAY, years later, OD called on his old neighbor AU. He said, "It's remarkable how your business has grown since you got that idea about selling tomato juice!' "Yes," said AD, "but even more important have been the benefits to other people. We arc now only one out of many producers of tomato juice. Yet we take all the tomatoes grown by more than a thousand farmers who have here an assured market for their crops. We give steady employment the year round to several hundred people and employ hundreds more on part-time. We pay more than half a million dollars a year to manufacturer* of cans, bottles, labels, supplies, and equipment. "The entire industry now sells more than twenty million dollars worth of tomato juice a year and the public enjoys its healthful benefits—at the lowest price at which it ever has been sold. Yes, tomato juice was a great idea, but that idea would have benefited very few—without ADVERTISING to tell the story." Hope Star fJ,
