THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS, Patapa, Texas TUESDAY EVENING, JANUARY 15, 1936 EDITORIAL ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^u^^^^^^^^^L^^^^^M|^M|MMMM|^MM|MM|HB DO SPIDERS SEEK YOUR DOOR? Whenever a merchant or a businessman queries the Wisdom of newspaper advertising, I am reminded of the quaint story which is credited to Mark Twain. A sub- .scriber of the paper of which Mark Twain was editor wrote to inquire the significance of a spider, which he has discovered in the fold of his paper. "It means neither good luck nor bud," remarked the humorist, in reply to the subscriber's letter. "The spider was merely in the paper to see which merchant in the town does not advertise, so that he might, spin his web unhindered across his doorway." While Mark Twain's remarks are probably merely a delightful fabrication, there are nevertheless at least eight sound business reasons why a progressive business man cannot afford to disregard newspaper advertising: 1. Newspaper reading is a universal habit. Newspaper advertising, therefore, reaches each day virtually all who buy, giving them the merchants' news. 2. Newspaper advertising is the life blood of local trade because it touches all consumer sources in every community. It gives the national advertisers the same opportunity for complete consumer appeal in any locality, carrying news of what is new and good to everyone simultaneously. 3. Newspaper advertising cuts selling costs for recovery, the main point being the recovery of the republican party. Huey Long announces he'll broadcast a new cure for cancer. So many cancer cures have proved false that we'd believe in this one if it cured Huey. In his estimate of the number «jf people still unemployed, did President Roosevelt include General Johnson? Never mind the weather—baseball teams are getting ready for spring training. The world, says a scientist, is slowly being depleted of its oxygen, but can't wo stave off disaster, by muzzling' some of our political windjammers?

Cary Grant played ':i a film called "Kiss and Ma so T p," yet in his apparent success. Aside from Lmpe because .it entails no waste in locality, of circulation. This cuts costs to the consumer. 4. Newspaper advertising insures quick, thorough, and economical dealer distribution and dealer goodwill, because retailers are willing to sell products advertised direct to their own consumers. This insures freshness, newness and the best form to the consumer. . 5. Newspaper advertising enables manufacturers to tell where their products may be bought. This eliminates time, trouble and waste of energy to the consumer. 6. Newspaper advertising can be started or stopped < over night, can be prepared! between days to meet certain developments and to obtain immediate results. This • gives consumers the latest news of late developments ' that may help them save money and are better served. 7. Newspaper advertising enables manufacturers to '< check advertising results and costs in every market they enter. This is an important element in keeping costs . down and distribution at peak for manufacturers. 8. Newspaper advertising costs less money than any ' other kind and brings results. Naturally, lower prices and • quick distribution results. • The merchant or other business man who is not tak- ' ing advantage of the opportunities offered by newspaper ' advertising to boost his business now, will still be facing ! readjustment problems when his competitors are back '• on a normal business ph\nc. And the consumers cannot ', be well served by the non-advertiser for the reasons set ' above.—Times-Record, Spencer, W.

Woodul and his wife were greeted on their return to the capital by •cmodeled living quarters for the ieutenant governor. A kitchenette with nn electric stove has been installed. A bath and dressing room also have been- provided. Heretofore the accommodations in lie lieutenant governor's quarters have consisted only of a bed rpom, eception room and office. It has :ven lacked a hot water supply. The speaker of the house will re- urn to find his quarters unchanged. The presiding officer of the house will continue to bathe his face in cold water and seek his hot cakes and coffee at nearby capital restaurants. It is probable the house will make provision during the session for installation of modern conveniences in the speaker's quarters, appro- THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS Published evenings except Saturday, and Sunday morning by Pampa Dally NEWS, Inc., 322 West Foster, Pampa, Texas OIIAIORK N.

OUT OUR WAY .. By WILLIAMS THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON BY RODNEY DUTCHER I NEA Service Staff Co-respondent WASHINGTON.—The treasury continues to be con- S servative, in spite of everything. , J Secretary Henry Morgcnthau was asked what he con« sidered the outstanding thing- in his/annual report, s "I'm told it's the dullest report ever written in the c .treasury," he replied. "But it isn't my fault. I had some• thing in there to brighten it up and the fellows around " here insisted on taking it out." K Of course, he was asked what had been deleted. " "Well," said Morgenthau, "I said that if business II didn't get any worse next year, it might get better. But they thought that statement was too reckless." *.• # # * # '' Quite a few veterans of the pre-New Deal era re- ti memberecl "Pension Bill' Ashbrook of'Ohio, who entered' ;: the house in 1906, served 14 years, and was recently re' elected to his old seat after 14 years away from here. Bill Ashlbrook liked to be called "Pension Bill," be- .cause he had introduced more pension bills than anybody .' else, although that wasn't much help to him in the J920 ' Harding landslide. " ; What astonished his old friends as he walked ' into the house on opening day, however, was the fact that "Pension Bill" was very far from being alone. He was 54 years old when he left the house and quite childless. But now, trailing along behind him, • were five of his own boys and girls, ranging from 2 to 9 years. They all sat in the back row.

This was a pardonable error, as Congressman Bloom still one of the Hill's outstanding limelight grabbers, ^n the opening day one noticed him, much of the time, sitting- ingratiatingly on the rostrum at the feet of Speak- I er Jae Byrns, whom he was engaging in conversation. !• '' * * * * c Another New York congressman, however, wasn't having any too happy a time on the opening day. Sam Dickstein, chairman of the committee appointed to investigate Nazi activities, which has been promoting another "red scare" instead, was writing a .three-page letter to the commissioner of police in his home town of New York. . \ Sam urged that no further parajde permits be jgrantpd * -to communists.
