12 LEADING NEWSPAPERS ARE MEDIUM FOR ADVERTISING McKinley Tells Merchants of Chicago News Ads Give Best Returns. John McKinlay, president of Marshall Field and company, speaking at a luncheon meeting- of the Interstate Merchants Council, at the Hotel Sherman, stressed newspaper, advertising as the moat trenchant, of all helps in correctly and profitably disposing of "merchandise at retail. Mr. McKinlay told the merchants who are here from all parts of the United States and Canada, that advertising brings -the customer and merchandise together and for this purpose it has proved the most effective purpose for the company of which he is the executive heacJ. "We all are familiar with Ralph Waldo Emerson's, 'if, a man. makes a better mouse trap the world will beat a path thru the .woods to his door,' said Mr. McKinlay, "but the · trouble · with this theory is that the world has not sufficient time to find ·the path thru the woods to his door. The most of us, being'destined to live not more than three score years and 10, have resorted to advertising as a short cut for the consumer thru the woods to the better product . . . : - . · , ' · · ..Newspapers Most Effective. ^''1t is because 'advertising .brings MASON, CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 5 19S1' POPE TO BROADCAST GREETING TO THE WORLD HERE IS REAL PROOF. , "ATy stomach and bowels Tvere weak for many years", says Mrs. J.,R.

Conceding that a merchant must sell good merchandise correctly styled, fairly price aid courteously presented, he wil in our opinion find the newspape advertising- the most trenchant o all helps' in correctly and profitabl | disposing of the merchandise. "The newspapers present the mer chant with a large and representa tive audience, collecting- and dis seminaling the world's news, pre senting- the amusement features, ed ucational and editorial departments sports, science, social g-ossip, pictures and domestic science. The newspapers have succeeded in building and retaining the keen interest of practically every one of the 30,1000,000 families -in the United States. In brief, they reach the pub- Hie upon such a scale of magnitude that · they can afford to distribute the merchant's publicity necessarv at a lower cost of one hundred, one I hundred thousand, or a, million less than any other form of successful! demonstrated" propaganda; b u newspaper advertising-·'to be effec tive must be carefully planned." Praises the-Wholesaler. . Mr. McKinlay said that the n'e conception which the 'efficient na tional wholesaler today 'is rapid 1 and successfully developing, an which should be of intensive interes to the retailer, is that as' a matte of fact the wholesaler comes befor the manufacturer, as well as after because the wholesaler goes.;to th manufacturer-and tells him what tt make. The intelligent wholesaler to day frequently owns one or more retail stores which gives him suf ficient knowledge of the business of, creating, dyeing, styling, print ing and packing. The retailer should tie himself up with such a wholesaler, for every retailer who ties limself up to a. wholesaler as chief source of supply, there are a thousand retailers who scatter their nergriea among; too many. sources- Colonel Robert Ishatn Randolph^ resident of the Chicago Association f Commerce, with which the Inter- tate Merchants Council is affiliat- d, welcomed the visiting merchants o Chicago and Fred P.

Cff)--The nterest of his younger son in baby calf club work several years ago caused William F. Jager, 59, to staft the purebred Aberdeen-Angus herd from which he sent the 1929 International Livestock exposition n Chicago the grand champion fat steer. · · · Before his son became interested n club work, Jager devoted his at- lention to Shorthorns. The son, Prank,'now a partner with/his father, wanted an Augus calf, however, so his father bought, a cow with her calf. That was 'the beginning of one of the finest herds of A.berdeen-Angus cattle in this section of Iowa. · Jager, one of Iowa's master farmers for 1930, tells why he raises only -mrebred cattle. ''They are the best to get the highest poundage and Tain* and the highest market price.'' Jager, ' however, has other Hve- -tock interests. There also Is on the irogram a yearly crop of from 125 to 150 pigs and a similar crop of ambs. His livestock activities are so 'xtensive in total, in fact, that Jarer yearly buys more feed' than be mn raise on his 328 acres. The sheep, a'r. enterprise, have been signally successful. For many-years, the average crop has been more than one' lamb for each ewe. The 1930 croo was 150 lambs rom 120 ewes. Poultry has not been as extensively developed altho each vaar about 125 hens· are kept over 'rom the fine flock of Wyandottes. Iowa to Get SOO Heds. WASHINGTON, Feb. 5.
