Oh, sure, he believes in newspaper advertising for retailers like himself—but he doesn't realize that he should urge manufacturers to advertise there, too. Fortunately, the SHRUG is a rare creature. Most retailers put most of their advertising in their local newspapers— and ask for and welcome manufacturers 1 ads in the same medium. Happily, manufacturers are using newspapers more and more. What clearer evidence than in the record amount of linage they placed in newspapers th6 firs* six months of 1955? Both retailers and manufacturer* used more newspaper advertising in the first six months of 1955 than in any similar period in history. Nowhere else can a manufacturer and a retailer advertise together so effectively as in the newspaper.
