(Ui'l — '1'lic possibility of removini; Hcratiton from miMnuffiliip in (h e New Yovk-Pennsylvania l)asei!:ill lnii(;nc was believed to have been lore- f.tallecl with the election of Thorns's Ricliiiixlsoi), of Williamspurt, as Ihc h-amic's new president. It had been reported that either Troy, N. y.. or Hartford, Conn would replace Scranton as a league- meinbci- because of sucli lew attendance figures at the local team's home games last season. Poor ball playing in the early part of last season was cited ;ir, reason for small crowds. Richardson, a frequent visitor to Scranton. believes that with llic proper Interest injected into the local situation, old-lime baseball enthusiasm can be restored. CHALLENGE TO CHIZZLEVlTS There once was a merchant named Chizzlewit who trimmed his tree every Christmas and his customers every day. He was a canny creature,'this Chizzlewifc, and knew how to win a customer by guile. The shirts he sold were cheaply woven, packed with powder- to make them seem firm. To. conceal their inferiority he told customers that he always wore them himself. In the glassware department he "made up" for poor quality by giving a set of pretty paper doilies with every purchase. He knew many such clever tricks and used them without reserve. . .Clfizzlewit never advertised. He knew- too well he could never fool people for long in print. i Advertising ?nust live ujj to its own claims. That is why you can have full confidence in goods consistently advertised. If the maker has a worthy product, fairly priced, he wants as many people as possible to know about it. If the product is unworthy, the printed word will only expose it sooner, - Christmas, and all around the ; calendar, read advertising. Makers and merchants stake their reputation, in cold black type, that what you read is true. MAN CLOTHING GIFTS WILL "RATK" WITH HIM! CilliCK YOUR GIFT LIST . . . THKN HURRY DIRECT TO R, I).
