A big company had developed a better, foster-acting soap powder thai washes dishes faster, makes clolhes whiter with less work. How could they sell it at such a low cost as to be able to sell it cheaply? Only through advertising- Today they sell millions of dollars of this soap powder per year —making hundreds of new jobs in a .huge factory, hundreds of jobs with firms who supply the raw materials, more and better jobs in stores that handle that soap—and in banks, railroads, truck lines, insurance companies, all of whom have more work to do —and more money coming in — because of this added soap business. Nobody Lost For the amazing fact is—this new brand of soap didn't take money from of.lier soap companies. The product and its advertising increased the total consumption of soap. So there was more business, better business—more and better jobs. You're More Secure A pply this very prosaic soap story to the more glamorous fi e ] c i s o f automobiles, refrigerators, clothing, furniture —everything you buy. You'll see plainly how advertising acts as the spark plug of business. You'll see how advertising—today and tomorrow—is creating opportunity for you, find making your present job more secure.

EXPRESSMAN—My job depends on goods being shipped. And the main reason goods are shipped is because they are solii. So by selling goods, advertising helps me be sure of steady work. HOUSEWIFE-K's n perfect circle."When advertising makes us women go to the store to buy, we stimulate business. And it's when business is good (hat our husbands nre secure in their jobs. So let's be grateful for advertising. SAILOR—A ship's business is to transport goods. Always there lias to Ire a buyer—or we tie up. So advertising to sell goods is important in giving siiilorssleadyworkand n chance to get ahead. .. --..... w mdj(6s|your job more ie<siir1e • - • -• BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS
