Every newspaperman has heard the story, but it bears repeating: One day, P. K. Wrigley was riding on a train with a friend and the conversation turned to the chewing gum business. The friend, who had an eye for saving a penny, suggested now that Wrigley chewing gum was so well known and had such large distribution it might be wise to dispense with advertising, save that expense and make that much additional profit. "I could ask the conductor of this train the same question," replied the financial genius. "This train is now going 60 miles per hour, so why not disconnect the engine? Advertising is to merchandising what a locomotive is to a train. It is the power which keeps it going."
