Simple Dessert "i .. and Temp ting American Readers Give Attention to Newspaper Advertising, INS Says 'NEW YORK, April 28.—Advertising, according to a recent survey by the International News Service, is one of the interesting features of the American and Canadian daily newspapers. The INS admits that this may come as a shock to some newspaper editors, but the Aclvertisng Research Foundation possesses a two years, continuing survey of newspaper readers likes and dislikes to prove the truth of this statement. For example, the INS asserts that in 18,000 interviews I'rom coast to toast, research workers discovered that the number of women reading one or more advertisements exceeds the number reading .one or more comics, or society news or pictures This study, made with the aid of the Bureau of Advertising of the American Newspaper Publisher's Association, showed that 52 percent of the men and 58 per cent of the women readers read one or more national advertisement. (Local advertising, it was found rates 74 per cent of the male and 94; per cent, of trie female interest. So far as the editorial contents is concerned, tho survey discloses that every reader stops to read something in each section of the paper—general news, pictures society, sports, etc. The picture page has the greatest following of readers among the continuing features. Editorial cartoons are second, comics and oddity panels follow closely. Men show a greater preference for national and international news than for purely local items; with women, the interest in each is, about equal. Osceola Mrs. Jiuwbtf Complimented Mrs. John W.
