OLD, Says Dairymen Need Advertising C. R. Schoby, Algona farmer and dairy leader, who is also president of the American Dairy Association, spoke to the Rotary club Monday, March 6, and outlined some of the needs and necessities of agriculture in geni- eral, and dairying in particular, He cited the necessity of advertising in the selling of dairy products, and said that more money is spent every day for cigarettes than for milk, partially due to the power of advertising. He also said he believed in a program in which the farmer helps himself in the spirit of the pioneers, rather than becoming dependent in thought and a financial sense on someone else, or a'government agency.

WANT ADS PHINGfl RESULTS When You Think of PAINTS HALL- STRAHORN HDWE. Formerly Spilles Hdw Algona I4OM&. By ROY Ye*, what ihey say about the "security of a home" is true . . . and that doesn't just apply to the folks who are able to build a home . • • but also to those who rent a home or apartment. What i% inside the home is what counts. In the old pioneer days, our forefathers were able to make a true home out of a log cabin or sod shack. It was theirs, and it was home. We know thai not everybody can'build a brand-new home, that is, all of those who want one just now. But there are a good many things you can do, at small cost, to give new life and sparkle to the home you live in now. You can put up new draperies, you can add a Uttle paint here and there, and- you can add a new piece of furniture or two—and begin to "live" all over again. The first and most important suggestion will take courage. Before starting to "re-do" your present place, you're probably going to have to discard some of the furniture you have. You have to be firm with yourself. Save the furniture items that are basically good as to comfort and line, k and also those with such K fLsentimental value that you can't give them up. The rest we can help you out with at Bjusirom's furniture. Do you know that we will give you a good trade-in value for your old furniture, on the purchase of the new? Even that old rocker you think is worthless because you inherited it from Aunt Susy and have had it so many, many years—may be worth a number of dollars to you, if traded in here. We have a steady market for old furniture, and that's why we offer this popular plan. Right now, we have a store full of fine new furniture of all types—from handsome new modern wood bedroom sets to swank chrome dinette sets. We invite you to come in and look around at Bjusirom's. Then tell us what you have that you would like to trade in for credit on the new, and we will arrange it for you. It's pretty easy, on this plan, to have the new furniture and home furnishings you want. We ask you to use it. Spring is the time we get that old urge-to have something new around the house. It lifts one's spirits. Mokes one happier, better able to go about the round of daily life. Get in the swing, and let us help you here at Bjusirom's furniture.
