Toys were less e\p,nsi»e than in other years, and expv iisive ^ifts were less common. but everybody who ever gives at Christmas gave this year :ind tin trade in useful presents was as nwich belter than usual as the trade in lu.\- urios was below tlio r.veraee. Th< general balance, tiiorcfore. was up to normal. Tiie inile -.iRO bureau was a factor in this gratifyin.i; re.iuli. as is shown by ;be limir, s compiled today in the Register ollU-e. The Uepister, as is pret--)- ty generally known, pa.vs out the mileage on receipts f'oni shoppers and is thus ablo to tell e.xactiy th that the insurance money was sub- j volume of out of town trade.

Judge Foust found for the heirs but the siijiremc court revcrsfd the case and found for tiie administrator, basing its decision on this technicality: "There is a pr''v;>ion in the certificate of me^l^er^•;lip wh.ich reads; 'Ir. the event of the d>-.ih of tiie benefie- iarj- i>rior to tliat of the member or in case none is tamed, tl'e benefit then to bo payalile to the Ieg.".I reiiresenta- tive of the dt ••-a.'^ed member."

It is really niih 'T ajrg .-avHtiiig to Jliiiik that a merchant should buy advertising and scatter all over Allen county anO offer mileage refunds and some partV even though small, of the resulting bi nefit to iltj town be dragged out ol eir(i:!ation by the man who "milks" the booster results.

The story was ceritilnly told broadcast (hut Christmas shoii- pers could find everything In lola and (he merchanls who used the most space lo loll their story reaped the largest results. The Register is not gU'-ssing at this. Its advertising book.s show that the firm which bought the most advertising spnci' got the most o :f _thp out-of-town tradi' as shown by the milca.ce credits. And by the same token, that firm enjoyed the largest amount of local trade. And the next largest advertiser, enjoyed the next largest unrtion of th' out-of-town tr.idc. And so on down the line. MORAL—The advertising record' and the mileage records prove beyoni' any shadow of a doubt tliat the volume of business goes to the- lola merchants in proportion to their advertising in the Register. WHiich suggests big possibilities in town trad' and upbuilding if all the merchants could realize this fact and resolve oii the first of the Xew Year to hel[ , bring trade here instead of lying in Judge : (],p shopper whom some ether man's invi'Stir-'nt of money lias iu- vif'd to tov. !i.
