Issued Thursdays in 1955 By THE! UPPER DES ^OINES PUBLISHING CO. i R; B. WALLER, Managing Editor C. $. ERBANDER, Advertising Manager 11 A survey was fatfde 't'ecentl^ ,\vhicl| .ptirrjorted to show that at afty glv'ehVtihieV no ifd'rte''than 2.3% of radios are tuned'to any tone station. Piteh ,the percentage was less; 2.3% was the highesf 'ishown in the survey. If a newspaper's 'ads reached only 2.3% o: the population potential in its area it would indeet be a poor advfettlsiAg rrtediOm, . ,. f There is 6rt4 Jningi |ib0ift the eircula|ibn o ; a newspaper, ^p|eci'allyiorio that is a m^rnfier p: '•ABC (AUdiied 1 Bjure'axi of'Circulations), i[pu cah tell exactly, at dny. given 1 time just how many 'papers are procltic'edi where' they go, artdj how •mkny .are being p a '4 for.-There is no other advertising medilijtl that can make the samel of fai 'or< : prove -the same point. ,: ,;• ;4| V Even'with* circulars or handbills there is lio guarantee that they go into a home or are read. There is that certainty with a newspaper — and only a newspaper. Off and on, new. mediums come along that seek the advertising dollar; for a time, when .the novelty is new, and the spies talK-|strongi .tfceV may run "hot", but whenl thei novelty we.arsf'ofj. and the sales results are counte'd, the good, old reliable newspaper with • r,eal circulation. f val.ue that-can stand .up and be* coVmte'd^ klway^s: prfaves the best ~- ahd; most econohiicalj. |— /advertising medium. * * » WHAT'S 'HIGH — WHAT'S RIGID' i \ \ ' '|' • Iowa Falls- Citizen *—, This ^nejvs^ap:?r ,Jhas never lashed itself to the mast with" regard"'to rigid price support or flexible price supports or 90 percent of parity versus some lower level. Nevertheless we do .think tHatjthe t^m/'hign :. rigid" price support has ;came to have Mr Unfair and unfortunate connotation, particularly* Vith city consumers. "High rigid" ipr|f«i supnprts are generally associ^teoV, with . thoser whilh j provide, crop loans at 90 percent of parity.; - y , I i ! 5 In that respect these "high rigid" price supports are not high. They are at 90 percent of parity which is still 10 percent below what both political parties and Americans generally have come to regard as equality for agriculture. Furthermore they are not "rigid", because they fluctuate as parity fluctuates. If the prices that farmers have to pay decline, the price supports decline proportionately. In short, high rigid price suppoijt^' '^ n^t nearly so high-nor-nearly so rigid as thfe'h'ebtilines would make us believe. That does not necessarly mean, ^however, that they are the ^Ole]and]f|oyg-' Ir^swer to our farm .problem! 1J. « j * * ! » I , - eiiy e^tlflctl meellrrg Nbfember' .vvas plenty-;brjsK Haj?eti,dh ; e night duf to T , pletef ' ' ' seiit frid'teaay tfi'gplto <.»•••,...-*•»? <ohly 'Btismfess presehted wai the •a'pbtdvaf flftd payment of the city bins '— and everyone had gorte home by 9 p.m. Undoubtedly one of the shortest city get-togethers in history. ; Fred Geigel well-known Jiv* ington man, now a repSdent at i gona, had b$cohie jferii&us as produqef; of tip-flights'torn. 1 ' 'fi|th?p1aee withl^irs of.hia W cdiii at the International jlUJfikV-Shpfr in Chicago, the ;same eariiiyt; won -flrsC place at flhe tyaterfot!
