LONDON, Jan. 10--German Propa anda Minister Paul Joseph Goebbels 'as reported in a Berlin dispatch to he News-Chronicle to be preparing o take a six-month leave of absence rom his high office. are resolutions holding out? By this time, a lot of trie resolustions that were so shining bright on New Year's Day are badly bent or broken. Maybe your resolutions were too lofty to allow for human frailties. We'd like to suggest another resolution that is both easy and profitable to keep. It's just this: Read the advertisements regularly. Sounds childishly simple, doesn't it? But it makes sense when you stop to think about it. You have a certain amount of money to spend for all the things your family needs. It's up to you to get tjne most out of it. And the advertising pages of this paper can help you. Here merchants and manufacturers advertise their best values; their lowest prices. They know they can build business only by giving you satisfaction. You know you can depend upon the things they advertise. It works both ways. Watch for "specials," for seasonal sales, for news of new foods and new conveniences. You'll learn the best time to buy winter coats or bathing suits- You'll learn prices, styles, brands. You'll shop without wasting time or steps. .And you'll live a lot more comfortably.
