AIN STEM •T JULIAN CHUSCHIUII ^^f ^P^iBBBW- •^Ma^HjlP^llIP U MAV NOT know lt but lots °* things you buy in in^'T ar ° % l ; n i med b , y (a) ^6re tne item is loin the store; and (b) how it is displayed ... a local pro- sec- and although the peanuts ™i! ypkal su P ermark et sells about 7,000 items, up from n l y ?? ye » aw ago ' ' ' the average shopper spends 26 minutes in the store and that is less than one-fourth second ErI « , mS Catch the popper's eye. Obviously, most items are never seen ... and home-made signs usually attract more attention because the shopper feels that the item displayed is on special just at the local store, not at all others. 4 ,,- ll 1hasLbeen Proven that a shopper is more receptive to impulse buying" at the start of her shopping trip — by color and aroma — than later on when the items pile up in her cart and she starts to worry about a big bill. One of the best spots for display is near the meat counter, where shoppers have more time to browse around, not only because she is waiting for meat but also because the customer feels more by herself rather than when she is around a number of others near the check-outs. An item which has fallen or tipped over at the top of a rack of items also will help "kill" a sale . . . "The customer is afraid if she moves the toppled package to pull one out from under it, the stack might fall and cause a commotion," one grocer commented. Prime display spots are "anything between your eye level and your waist" and just a little bit in from where she shopper turns into the aisle. Most grocers will tell you there are some spots where ; you can put anything and it will sell and there are other spots where you can put the best items and it won't sell. And the spots vary in different stores. THE BILL CONNS have a common drive from highway 18 with the Algona Country Club ... and more than once, persons have stopped at the Conn home, thinking it was the. clubhouse. In fact, it wasn't too long ago when Mrs. Conn looked up from the kitchen to see a man in the living room . . . "Where do I pay the green fees?" he inquired! A LETTER addressed simply "TO GRANDMA, ALGONA, IOWA" was delivered to the right owner by the alert gents at the Algona post office ... it seems that SVa-year old Mark McCorkle, son of the Harry McCorkles at Glendale, Calif, (former Algonans) was using his daddy's typewriter in his dad's State Farm Insurance office. He typed several lines (of course, illegible), signed his name and then asked his dad to address it "To Grandma, Algona, Iowa" ... of course, Harry didn't dream the boy would mail it. The family stopped at a shopping center on the way home and Mark disappeared suddenly, found a mail box and dropped the unstamped letter in ... last week it arrived in Algona and the local post office people read the return address, knew grandma was Mrs. Anna Harvey and dropped it in her box — postage due, of coursel IDEAS submitted for items to be sent to servicemen in Vietnam have been numerous, according to Mrs. Edward Otis of Wesley, who requested these things in this column several weeks ago . . . they include oranges, tangs, cookies, hard candies, shoe string potatoes, french friend onions, po- corn (unpopped or popped, kool aid, gum, nestle's quik, canned oysters, sardines, boiled clams, cheese, lined writing paned oysters, sardines, boiled clams, cheese, lined writing paper, envelopes, ballpoint pens, paperback books, chap stick insect repcllants, scotch tape. THE ADVANCE newspaper will be host to the Iowa Press Assn. golf tournament here on July 22 with about 100 press men and their wives expected.

PROBABLY FEW baseball teams have ever faced a rougher September than the Minnesota Twins will this fall. . . should they be at or near the top come Sept. 1, here is what they face during the final 31 days of the season — six games with the Yankees, three games with the White Sox, six games more with both Baltimore and Detroit and four with Cleveland. These are the toughies in the AL and any of the group could be fighting for the pennant. There could be some doubleheaders thrown in too because of rain-outs. Algona H. S.
