Haddock. Advertising in weekly newspapers is more effective than in daily newspapers, according to a readership survey recently reported by the Newspaper Advertising Service, Inc., Chicago. A total of 189 dailies and 883 weeklies in the middle west were surveyed, 39 to 198 respectively in Iowa. The total Iowa circulation tested for weeklies was 415,430 and for dailies 412,436. The survey showed that, given an hour test reading time, 7 VJ minutes per page is spent on the average weekly while only two minutes on the average 30 page daily. Advertising readership was listed at from four to ten per cent in daily papers while weekly publications showed that from 20 to 40 per cent of the reading time was spent on advertising. The weekly paper showed that four people per copy read the paper while only three read each issue of the dailies. Reading value of dailies was only one day while it Avas shown that the weekly paper remained in circulation for seven days. The conclusions drawn from this survey indicate that advertisements in the weeklies secure equal attention at less than one-fourth the cost of a dally newspaper advertisement.

Call No. 200 J. A. F LYNN Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, February 3, 1946, is "Lovo" The golden text is "I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith tho Lord God. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick" (Ezeklel 34:15,16) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "Bless the Lord, O my soul,. and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thlna lilqultiea; who healeth all thy dlseas es; who redeemeth thy lifo from de structlon; who crowneth thee with lovlngklndness and tender mercies" (Psalms 103:2-4; From the Christian Science text book Is the following: "If God heals not tho sick, they are not healed, for no lesser power equals the Infinite All-power; but God, Truth, Life, Love, does heal the sick through the prayer o the righteous, God Is not the author of mortal discords. Therefore we ac< cept tho conclusion that discords have only a fabulous existence, are mortal beliefs which divine Truth and Love destroy" (p. 231) RECORD IOWA BEAVER TRAPPED The largest beover ever recorded in Iowo has been trapped on the Little Sioux River in Woodbury county un> dor a "nuisance" permit issued to Caton.
