What It Does It maintains an efficient and experienced staff of investigators who are continually traveling from city to city for the purpose of examining and certifying to the circulation of newspapers that will permit their rigid investi-gatiop. : ; ' ... This circulation audit is an exhaustive one, consuming, from, two weeks to a month's time and results' in a bona-fide certification of that newspaper's circulation as ar-rived at from an examination of absolute concrete" facts. What It Means to a . . - . . . ? Buyer of Advertising' Space It means securing an honest bonaf ide legitimate knowl-, edge of juBt what a newspaper's circulation amounts to. , It means buying advertising space on the basis of absolute information as to how many copies of a newspaper , are printed a"nd circulated and where that circulation is ' distributed. ' . It means honesty of circulation' and The OAKLAND TRIBUNE is pleased to offer you just such a service. - Do you wonder why all newspapers do not offer such protection to the buyers of their advertising space? .
