CHURCHES... "In the day of prosperity there is a forgetfulness of affliction; and in the day of affliction there is no more rememberonce of prosperity." — Ecclesiasticus XI,25 There is so much in this world that we take for granted. The telephone is an example. Most of us use it every day. We chat with friends and neighbors, we buy, we sell, we trade. We do it as a matter of habit. But, let a storm or some act of nature disrupt communications and the telephone becomes more important in our eyes—because the unit is there, but it does not function. For some of us, it's pretty much the same where God and religion are concerned. We drift along, going through the motions, until some crises or affliction. Then we learn again how to pray and to plead for help. We may ask God, "Why me?" and never consider that we were never thankful for the better days.

And almost everyone scans the ads in their local newspaper. Too many newspaper advertisers try to be different in their approach to advertising to get the readers attention. Often they fail. An advertisement that sells tells the story of the product —what it is, how it works, what its advantages are, and what it does for you. If you use local newspaper for advertising make a note of these selling points in preparing your ad: 1. Decide what it is you really have to sell. Then, sell just that. Over and over again. 2. Make your advertisement as "newsy" as possible. Price is news. A new product is news. 3. Take enough space to tell your story with eye-catching fashion — don't crowd it. The money you save by reducing the size of your ad is wasted by the number of readers you'll lose. 4. Tell your story often. One ad's pulling power proves nothing. 5. Be selective. Run your ,ad where it will do you the most good — the sports page for most men, society pages for women. Your local newspaper suggests that when you find the right selling combination that works for you, repeat it again—and again. It works! NEWSPAPERS DELIVER THE LOCAL STORY.
