BARNEY'S DRUG STORE 2006 W. Main Ph. 3-3647 No. 13 in a series of BARB CMATUBMI THE EVASIVE CLOG is happy go lucky —as long as luck is with him The GLOG is an advertiser who refuses to be moored to the crass world of facts and figures. He may spend a million on advertising. But if you ask him why, he talks about golf. If you ask him what he expects to get out of his ads, he raves about some oomph-girl who has caught the public eye. You can't pin him down - because he honestly doesn't expect much from advertising. Fortunately the GI.OG is a rare creature. Wise advertisers expect plenty from their advertising dollar. And they prefer to keep luck out of the picture. So they don't try to cover the nation with a flimsy catch-all schedule. They pick their best markets — then really cover them. .Naturally they use newspapers. Because newspaperi are basic—the foundation of any intelligent ad schedule. Because only the newspaper reaches just about everybody in every community. Because only the newspaper carries the sense of urgency — "If it's advertised today, I'd better go down and get it quick." No wonder advertisers invested twice as much money in newspapers last year as in any other medium! All business is local...and so are all newspapers!
