No. Ilka series of RAH« CHEATUHBSI THE ANTIQUATED FREEZE can turn the hottest ideas to ice The FREEZE is an executive who inhabits aging firms. Sometimes is found perched on legal departments, or hovering over comptrollers' offices. One blink of his eye can paralyze the best idea, and a waggle of his tongue can freeze an enthusiasm. He long ago reconciled himself to the fact that a certain amount of the company's funds must be "frittered away" on token advertising ... but turns thumbs down on any program that would really work — because programs that work cost money. Fortunately the FREEZE is a rare creature. The wise executive realizes thai advertising is part of the flesh and blood of a throbbing, prosperous enterprise. And all he asks is that the advertising work. So he insists on newspaper advertising because newspapers are basic - the foundation oC an intelligent ad schedule. Because only the newspaper reaches just about everybody in every community. Because only the newspaper carries the sense of urgency - "If it's advertised today, I'd better go down and get it quick." No wonder advertisers invested twice as much money in newspapers last year as in any other medium! All business is local... and so are all newspapers !
