Very qtdckly, would dose down plants and lay off million* of Volume production would be * thing of At ... and to, prices would rise jast. Within a week most radio and television stations wow/id v «p shop for lack of revenue. The ability of many mewtpapert and magazines to perform their jull, vital junctions would be seriously impaired. A nd the cost per copy would zoom jar those that tried to keep running only on circulation revenues. This alternative to advertising can hardly be thc goal of the critics of advertising. Without advertising our national economy, our national life, would be bleak indeed. In many ways, advertising is the power plant of our society. MOM COSTOMIRS FO* MORi PRODUCTS—American creative genius and wonderful ability for organization have reswted • a tremendous flow of goods of afl kinds. This creates a cracial »eed for masses of peopk anxiow, willing and abte to btty and consume these goods. Only a society with a constantly ruing standard of living can provide the customers. These customers have to be sought, taught and often persuaded to move higher in the scale of living. This is thc job of advertising. Advertising not only gives peopk news about new products, bat provides the urge for people to own and enjoy these products. The wider and deeper the penetration at ow products into the ife of America, the greater the need for more production. This •wans mow jobs. More jobs mean more people able to enjoy what vc make. More people buying means more, still more production. And so on and so on. The result m that more Americaw earn •njoy OHM of the traits of their labor than peopk in any country anywben SB the world can enjoy theirs. AOVUmMHa lOWIRS PRICIS—Doe* advertising nm the cost of goods? On Ae contrary. Through newspapers, tefcvwon, miiriim. r«So and billboards, an advertiser ean talk to a pror pact far a tiny fraction of a cent. Advertising is the quickest and cheapest wty of reaching large numbers of people. It enables the advertiser to reach his market (customers) inexpensively and thus increase his total production, thereby reducing the cost of making and selling each unit. TNI CUITURM imCTI OP ADVMTISINO-It'i becaow of 0jv*rusi*t that our mass media of communication ean anord to fe finest Ulent for bringing to the American people • -* *-^ — other countries are available to just a *ery few peopla. Advertising makes its cultural eontribvbpa in another way. Advertising is in large measure responsible for better Irving, less drudgery, more leisure for more people. This creates opportunities for intellectusJ and spiritual activities equaled in few, if any, other countries. White millions and millions of dollars are being spent by Americans for can, boats, sports equipment and the paraphernalia of lewure, there is a growing hunger for improvement of the mind and for aesthetic enjoyment. WHAT ARC TMI -NEEDS- Of THE PEOPLE T—Critics of advertising sometimes indict it for creating dissatisfaction in people's minds with what they have, and persuading and eajofing them into buying what they neither need nor want Bnt what ace "needsr The "needs" of people in undeveloped countries ace not the same as our needs. Our needs of 50 yenes ago are not the same as they are today. We don't actually "need" electric raaors, electric refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, television sets, shampoos, beauty treatments, packaged goods, or even automobiles. Bnt would the critics of advertising stop encouraging people to want a better life? Would they have the millions of people who create, produce, and market the so-called "non-essentials" thrown out of jobs? Do they want us to go back to the more primitive living of other countries? ADVERTISING - PUillC SWVANT—Frequently, the advertising industry U called on to direct public-service jobs--lor the Government as well as for private public-service organiratinm.

I know yon have been in such nelds as conservation, organized charities, safety, prevention of accidents, and more recently • giving your efforts to the job of pointing out to our peopk the need for self-discipline if we are to avoid debasement of our currency and prevent inflation.

The Federal Mediation Service announced a tentative agrwment Sunday In Washington after an ivernlght bargaining session. Representatives of the company and the Industrial Union of Martline and Shipbuilding workers meet here today to settle any remaining differences. Details of the settlement, which needs approval by the union nemershlp were not announced. The Baltimore Sun said it includes a 25-cent hourly wage Increase spread over three years. A Bethlehem spokesman said :he two Baltimore area shipyards would be open today for strikers .0 return to work. A union official said picket lines will remain until the contract is finally approved. The 21-week-old strike of 17,000 workers closed eight Bethlehem yards along the East Coast, in- Huding the Quincy, Mass., faci- ty, which had been working on he nuclear cruiser Long Br>ach and the nuclear destroyer Bainbridge. The strike, which halted work on an estimated half-billion dnl- ars' worth of Navy shipping, was narked by charges, countercharges and a lawsuit. Some picket violence occurred in the early stages of the dispute. The union walked out last January after negotiations for a new contract under way seven months, bogged down. A three-year work contract had expired last July 31, but workers agreed to stay on the job during negotiations. The union sought pay Increases, fringe benefits, better work rules and Job classifications. Under the old pact first class mechanics received $2.80 an hour, Including a 17-cent cost-of-llving grant. The men averaged about $100 a week in take-home pay, the compai-y said. Other yards, beside the Quincy and Baltimore facilities, are at Boston, Hoboken, N.J.: Staten Island and two In Brooklyn, New York. Ramset Manager ANNOUNCEMENT!
