MARJORIE FRAMPTON of SUPERIOR CLEANERS KNOXVIUE, ILLINOIS Newspapers' Role Lauded In Retailing David L. Yunich, president of Macy's New York, in a talk to the annual executives conference of the Gannett Newspapers in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., stressed the necessity for a continuing strong relationship .between retailing and newspapers in their own interests, as well as the social, cultural and economic growth of the United States. In citing the relationship of newspapers and retailers, Yunich noted that "the newspaper is a vital\ medium of communication and virtually all phases of its operation add up to the contribution newspapers make to the society. This is a vital contribution," he continued; "for when you help move goods, you encourage a flourishing economy." Points Limitations Yunich also apprised his audience of the retailer's view of the competitive advertising media, pinpointing radio and televison. "Radio," he said, "has its limitations," and he stressed that medium's inability to visually promote products. He further noted the expensive nature of television and its resulting limitations. He depicted the two media as "valuable supplementary media," but said they "cannot take the place of retailing's dependence on newspaper advertising." READ THE CLASSIFIEDS!

It also enables the driver to leave his lights on for up to 90 seconds after he parks his car. The power unit for the automatic dimmer is also relocated.
