--t'ACE TWELVE. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1938. BABSON SAYS ADVERTISING WILL HELP BEAT RECESSION Continued from Pago One. with foresight and courage who Sought securities and commodities and. started, new enterprises in 1932 have established fortunes. We have a similar opportunity today--in a smaller way. Right now cash is a "sale" and raw materials and securities arc a "buy." Those who arc buying-and investing today are doing themselves a good turn. More important, they are doing a service for their communities and the Nation L As refail shelves- arc emptied orders shift bach to factories and the "Help Wanted", signs, are. hung up once more. - .--- r .. Newspaper, magazine "and" radix advertisers arc doing their bit, too, to help" defeat tho recession before it degenerates inlo a major depression. For 30 years, I have studied the business cycle and have tried to discover how the peaks and valleys can be- ironed out I have always been convinced that one ol-the solutions is by -the proper use of advertising. When times arc good and business is booming, advertisers like to drive for orders. _Thls is only natural. Actually," however, manufacturers and merchants should hold back in good .times, and build up-an advertising backlog- which _th«y can pump ;out to-maintain their sales volume and. their employment in periods such as the present. Why Not AdoertfetaE "Relief.." If all concerns in. the same industry would agree to spend a certain percentage of their gross sales, on advertising, this .policy might be made workable. The trouble is tha B few outfits would always back ou! ut the bargain and take advantage of their competitors' programs. Two or three concerns can scarcely afford to carry the advertising for the industry. So, while the logical policy is to cut down on, space wh«n business is coming in under its own momentum and to boost sales budgets in slack periods, In practice the opposite happensr ~ -The Government is pouring ou money for various purposes to stimulate public purchasing power. Why not consider a policy of allowing business concerns to deduct any increase in their advertising and selling expenses from their tax bills du: ing periods when industrial production is running below normal? Depressions are serious only when re tail selling stops. Most of our basli economic troubles today are not con nectid with production, but rathe with distribution and taxation Speeding up the flow of goods 1 where we must? put the cmphasi rather than on speeding up the as sembly line. Space advertising can play a tremendous part in this pro gram. -Time to Ting" Sale*. Advertising is to mass distributio: what the machine Js to mass produc tion. Right now, for instance, it dc serves a good share of credit for th comparatively excellent volume o retail trade. "Sales" cannot mov goods unless customers know abou them. "I think that merchants an manufacturers now realize this mo: than they did m 1929. Not on] should purchasing power bis inflate! but the will to buy should be en ccuragcd. Advertising is the las item to cut in your sales budget un less you want to close up ihop. Cutting prices is just as essentia as maintaining or itcpplng up you advertising quotas. Despite its carl 1038 slap-in-the-face, purchasm power is still satisfactory althoug I expect that the year 1938 will aver age under 1S37. Farm Income ma be down, factory payrolls may b lower, and there may be sharp break In dividend payment However, the drop In Income on th average need not mean substantial] less goods for everyone Hits yea Why?. Because merchandise "sales and cheaper foo'd bills can so a Ion way toward offsetting the drop in Ih average family's Income. If you giv careful attention to your person and household buying this year, think you will come very close t matching your 1937 living -standnr Three" Buying Rules. I have three specific suggestio along this line for the months ahea First, shop carefully for your foo Always stock up on "sale" days o your staples.

KLEIN United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Feb. 18--Prcsl dent Roosevelt sought higher com modity price levels today In a nev move to lift the Notion from a economic recession. Reiterating his conviction tha trices generally still were too lorn Mr. Roosevelt asked a group lovcrnment fiscal experts to prepar a report on the price structure serve as the basis for action.

Mr. Roosevelt said he probably will discuss the price analysis at his Friday morning press conference. Although President Roosevelt has said repeatedly he favored a return to the price levels existing in 1826, it was generally believed that his first objective will be to increase the prices of those commodities which are unusually low and to bring into line with the general price structure those he feels are too hlfh.

Conservatively, instalment buying costs you 10 to 35 per cent more than cash. Third, make a simple budget and stick to it!-. Remember, "A dollar saved is a dollar earned." There is no easier way to increase your income 10 per cent than by carefully buying all goods from tomato soup to Oriental rugs! Follow these purchasing rules and 1938 will be not too bad a year! Various Uses of-Sunlight In Medical Treatments By LOOAX CLENDENING, M. D. -THE SUN always has been retarded as the giver and preserver of life. All primitive people welcomed the return of the sun at the t i m e 01' t h e spring xolstlcc, and held religious ceremonies to commemorate the event. It was first used deliberately for th» purposes of treatment as long ago as the third century, w h e n Antyllus, a famous physician of tho Roman empire, recom- m e n d e d « u n Or.

In 1902 he made his first experiment by tak- dnjr . patient who had an abdominal wound full of pun and exposing the wound to tho sunlight The effect was remarkable.

He dressed the wound and was determined to keep It covered with a bandage, Mhich the dog wan just as determined to remove. Ho did this several times, and one day Dr. Rolller canio on tho dog by accident and found out tho reason for his persistence. Instinct had prompted the dog to lie with the wound exposed to the sunlight and It was soon healed. The llrst artillcial sunlight was used by Dr. Nlclr Finsen. It Is not remarkable that this invention should ha\c been made by a man who lived far north in Scandinavia, v.herc for long periods ot the year the days are almost completely dark.
