Picks Weeklies For New Series Convinced that newspaper space represents the most advnatageous medium for merchandising its products as evidenced by substantial increases in sales of Conoco germ-processed motor oil following past newspaper advertising campaigns. Continental Oil Company is again launching a large-scale advertising campaign in some 1400 carefully selected papers in all sections of the nation. The campaign will continue into September and will be distinguished by the fact that it will feautre the local dealer as weU as the company's oil. Survey* conducted by Continental's advertising department showed two factors which decided the nature of the forthcoming campaign. First, it was ascertained that the best sales results followed the use of newspaper advertising; and second, that the average motorist is Far more concerned with the mileage he obtains from his motor oil than any other single factor.

He looked at the time on the big advertising clock In front of the Borchardt drug store and squinted at the regular time piece In the window. Ten minutes separated the two from telling like time. Jack looked at hU own watch, started down the street, went a few paces, thought something was a miss and went back to have a second look at his watch, the clock and the sign. • * * From the big flre much praise Is heard and read anent responsible parties for Algona'i splendid water system. Folks who looked ahead for such emerpencies and times of drought are being congratulated. But It takes a good heavy tain from na'ure's source to wash the main pavements of dirt, dust, flilth, disease, etc. Why not use a little surplus city water, every business man will add A good word. • • • Mrs. Al Amunson is an ardent watcher of the big league baseball scores. Her interest concerns Charlie Root, pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. Charlie and Mrs. Amunson are first cousins. » • • In the alley back of the ill-fated Call theatre the space is blocked off from traffic. A sign gives the warning, "Street Closed, Icy Hill." Curious spectators viewing the flre remains also inquire the whereabouts of the icy hill. • » • Guy Mantor met an old friend. Recollections and stories were headlines of the conversation. A club room with the city's best as members was situated above a drug store on the spot where the post office is now located. Guy had a long laugh telling of the party of which he was a member spending near the entire night carrying ashes and dumping them down the chimney emerging from the club rooms. That surpasses anything the modern boys can scheme up. • • • When you glide across the dance floor with your lovely lady in your arms, perfumed and powdered, think of the orchestra. The men who environ you with strains of •weet music, who furnish the beautiful atmosphere of a heaven. Art, culture, call It what you may. Big busses, good wages, tuxedo suits. But when the dance Is over they start out many miles distance for the next night's stand. They sleep In the bus. They flop on the green grass In some off-side spot No dally bed, no bath. Isn't music grand? » * * A spot on State »tr«srt has just completed a new cement sidewalk. One of the workers did his labor dressed In pants, shoes and gloves. Naked from the head to below the navel. Women passed, girls and boys stopped to watch. Take a picture of that fellow. Put it on paper, It would be naughty, indecent. Let's have some respect, at least on the market street where folks are forced to go. • * * The Bartholomew twin*. Do you know them apart? No? Neither do foks who ?>ave known them for years. Fred is different than Maurice. He wears a mustache for identification. When you meet one don't be backward at calling him either Fred or Maurice. They are used to it and will carry on with you not telling whether you have the right one or not. Remember now, Fred has the mustache, not Maurice. Maurice Is not, Fred and Fred is not Maurice, but either one alright when not sure. • • * Did you see any local Legionaires marching in Tuesday's parade? Those outsiders who did march, however few, were dumfounded to know why Algona's men were not in the show. Well, anyway, the private entertainment went over big.
