Newspapers, today as always, are made up of what PEOPLE say, think, propose, dissent from. Governments, institutions, businesses and all their activities are only the lengthened shadows of MEN! What is true on the front pages is true, also, on the advertising pages. Advertisements are simply signed statements of MEN, banded together to form a business, who seek ypur patronage. They back their good NAME against the products they ask you to buy. They say, in cold black type, that theirs is a name you can trust. People who get the most for their money in the marketplaces are people wfp know the value of familiar, trade-marked products. They buy with confidence. They buy BY NAME and save time, tiresome searching, and money! Are you doing likewise?
