Hou) Advertising Aids Return of Prosperity Advertising pays. Tluit has IJCOM ultcrcd so frci|iiciitly it is iilmusl a platitude. From it has tonic the erroneous belief thai unly the advertiser bcnelits. It is far from the truth. It doesn't take into.consideration tliat advertising as a whole is overwhelmingly honest. You have a mill in the area in which you live, let us say. It employs 1000 . in normal times. Now only 700 are working. Why? Because there is not the demand for its 'ifroducts. That demand can be increased by advertising, and men will go back to .work. The entire community, as well as the employer, will benefit. Producers will become buyers, and the welfare of the whole people, from millionaire to labor: or, -will be affected, i In 1929, $60,000,000 was spent to sell • 6,358,000 cars, a cost foi' mlvorlisiug of §llji car. Without advertising it is reasonable to assume many less cars would have been ..sold. Thousands, perhaps millions, employed in the automobile industry wouldn't have had a job. Steel workers, tire manufacturers, paint producers—all would have been alfecl- .ed. The analogy can be applied to department stores, other types of stores—to industry as a'whole. We Have our. teeth because we read of Iwnelits of using a toothbrush. We play healthful sports because we see • sporting equipment advertised and recommended. We furnish our homes • attractively because we see attractive furniture advertised. We are educated how to live more fully by advertising. And creating demands menus that more men and women have jobs. Just now, in a period of depression, there is buying caution. People arc saving their money, in some cases bo cause they aren't working and earning more, in others because, of the fear of losing their jobs, is still others because they do not understand. . It would seem, regarding the matter from an unbiased viewpoint, that, since the average citizen reaps ihe greatest •~ benefits, he should buy from the con•••• cenis which advertise. He should un- derstand that, it is one way he can help prosperity to return. And wise executives, realizing that advertising docs pay in more ways than one, .should insist on voluint advertising. It means business for them. It means more work for employe.-'. It means they are contributing something to aiii return of prosperity. Tliis Boy Made .a Profit on 8-Ccut Colton At any time, Arkansas would lx: proud to clnlm us a Mm n boy champion collou grower of the South. That II. J, Meadows, 17-ycar- old pupil In tlie vocational high school at Wilton, Ark., produced more llnl cotton on three acres last year than any oilier contestant 111 13 Southern suites Is the inor-l signal of triumphs because the dioulli lilt harder in Arkansas tliiin anywhere else In the entire cotton iK'lt. In producing 2.808 pounds of lint, moie than ono and faiir-fUllis bales an acre, on Ills contest plol. this young man clrHimistrutcil that If nny Arkansas grower take:; pains to use (rood seed, apply feitlllwi' iif the pro]H.T tort in the necessary quantity, nml nlve his crop assiduous cultivation, he can gi-t :\ lil\; ylekl In the lace of unfavorable conditions. He atv> proved that Hi: extra investment Involved in Hiving a cotton crap such allcntlon Is a paying investment. Tills boy wns caught In n price slump. His cotton sold nl an average of only 8.H cents a pound. But because of (lie heavy yield, it cost him 0.7 cents. Even with collon fetching little more than 510 a bale, there was u profit margin for him In the. price. There would have been no profit- at double the price for the average grower, for the average yield in Arkansas last year ivns less than one-third of a bale per acre. Uorcniment figure;! on production costs show conclusively thai a third of n bale Meld costs around 20 cents a pound to grow. Tim striking thing about the program that enabled young Meadows to find a profit lor him' self In' 8-ccnt-cotton is Us simplicity. Anybody hi Arkansas with a piece oi land lit for tollcn could have followed tlic Mine scheme. If it be said (hat not- every man could allord to buy good seed, apply high grade fertilizer liberally ami use so much labor on his crop, the answer is the difference ot almost 14 cents a pound between the, prl/c winner's Irnv production cost and' Hie high slate average cost. It was on his extra expenditures of money nnd labur that, this young man ninttc his profit. —Arkansas Gazette. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark PASSING OK WAR LOAN On April 14, 1D17, the House of Representatives passed without a single negative vote a bill to finance the prosecution of the wav against Germany. Three (lays later the Senate passed the bill witli- nit opposition.

Tile bond ssue as proposed was the largest in the history of the world.
