HONEY The Advertisements . . . . printed for your convenience Suppose all the advertisers in your favorite newspaper should stop advertising- for a week. • What inconvenience would result! How much telephoning- and shopping around to get the answers to such questions as: "What's playing at the downtown theaters? When will that new vacuum cleaner be on sale? Who is offering the bargains? Wnerc can I buy that dry shampoo Emily told me about? _ The answers to these questions, and to hundreds of similar ones that people ask every day, are news. Vital news. You're interested to learn who won yesterday s ball game. But you're really interested to learn that a certain store is selling a product you need for a price you can afford to pay. Furthermore, the advertisements save your time, for you can read them at home, away from the pushing crowds, and plan just what to buy and where to buy. And they save your money, by enabling you to adjust your needs to the limitations of your budget. In Ssnort, they are pocketbook editorials, condensing and interpreting for you the merchandise news of the day.
