DOUGHERTY. (C) W1 N.Y. .Times News Sefylc* : NEW YORK — "Most everyone I talk to," writes a reader, "says if there is one thing THEY WILL NOT buy it is Sharmin (he meant Charmin) tissues because of what most people tlilnk is a nauseous commercial on TV 'don't squeeze the Sharmin (he still means Charmin) etc.' I'd be interested in knowing what response there has been to this ad — whether S (C) harmin sales have actually increased (or declined) and to what extent." Well, dear reader, you either haven't talked to enough people or the ones you have talked to lied and are buying their toliet tissue on the sly, because Charmin is going Like a house afire and carving out bigger and bigger pieces of $525 million a year market. and-this probably, reflects its move into New York and. New England. The agency (beneficiary) is Benton & Bowles, which once had a public relations- director named George Whlppla. He looks only slightly like a supermarket manager. The advertising campaign is what the professionals call a "modified slice-of-life technique" with a tongue-in-cheek approach. 'One advertising executive characterized it as "brilliant," another, who didn't think it was tongue-in-cheek enough, said it was certainly helped by the fact that the product is a superior one. One sly old fox in the agency business was asked if there is any relationship between the irritation quality of a commercial and the sale of products. Cookie Sheet. Set of 2.

Charmin, like its sister products, Pampers disposable diapers, and Bounty Paper (towels), are from Procter & Gamble, those master marketeers. It is now available to 85 per cent of the population and, trade sources indicate, has about 15 to 20 per cent of the ; market, probably running neck- .and-neck with Scott, long the leader. And, reader-writer dear, you can bet your hippy on this—P. & G. does nothing in the field of advertising without thoroughly testing it and testing it some more. P. & G..'s Cliarmin Paper Products Co.

And how do you know?" And listen to this, dear reader, he also said, "who; does the complaining? Shut-ins, neurotics, the unstable, and the so- called intellectuals who hate advertising anyway."
