A Phone 863 INTERNATIONAL WHAT OTHERS SAY: PLAY IN YOUR Here's How Advertising Helps Make Your Income Safe and Sure; Helps Create Good Jobs for Your Daughter and Son I ODAY producing goods is no longer America's big problem. In most fields selling the goods is the big job. Yon know of dozens of businesses right in your neighborhood that could be twice as big as they now are if they could sell twice as much. And if they were twice as big, they'd employ twice as many people. One of the lowest-cost methods of selling goods on a big scale is through advertising. Advertising sells goods. When more goods are sold, often prices come down—so more people buy those goods more often. That means more jobs at the factory—and at all the firms that do business with that factory; the mines, mills, transportation companies, dealers, stores, banks, insurance companies, real estate firms, etc. All along the line there are more and better jobs for everyone. That's how advertising—by stimulating business—makes for a more secure present and brighter future for you and yours. Gt&c* WeufA j4dtf0itt*i«$ 'iVetfit "fyoa: 1-.
