MAKES JOBS MOM SECURE. ENTERTAINS AND AIAOSK. , This Case History Shoivs Hotv Advertising Gives You Greater Personal Security T AKE this cxclual case of a brand of soap. A big company had developed a bet for, foster-ncting soap powder that, washes dishes faster, makes clothes whiter with less work. How could they sell it nt such a- low cost as to be able to sell it cheaply? Only through advertising. Today they soil 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 other soap companies. The product and its advertising increased the total consumption of soap. So there wns more business, better business—more and better jobs. Vbu'f» More Secure Apply this very prosaic soap story to the more glamorous fields of 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, and making your present job more secure. LABORER—Tliefe are no Ip.y- ofifs when tilings are busy. A rush means o vertimD for me. So when ad vertising sells goods for my firm, I get more in my pny envelope. EXPRESSMAN—My job depends on goods beinf- shipped. And the mnin reason goods arc shipped is because they are sold. So by selling goods, advertising helps me be sure of steady work. HOUSEWIFE—It's a perfect circle. When advertising makes 113 women go to the Store to buy.wcslmiulntebusiness. And it's when business is good that our husbands are secure in their jobs. So let's be grateful for advertising. SAILOR—A ship's business is to transport goods. Always there has to boV buyer—or we tie xip. So advertising to sell goods is important iu giving snilorssteady work and a chance to gel ahead.
