A wrecked car. A crowd gathers, and a child pipes up. "Gee! Why don't he come out?" Before the child can get her answer, chances are that some grown-up will first have to get the full story from a newspaper. Then, for the first time, the child will learn that the dog refused to leave when his master was carried to the hospital, injured. Being on the spot is not much better than seeing one or two photographs of the action, or seeing a headline about it, or hearing a brief announcement. All of these can whet your appetite for news, but they cannot satisfy your hunger for the whole story. That's what the newspaper is for — news. The whole story... fast. • This goes for advertising, too. The brief message that hangs in the air... or brief headlines here or there... may indeed have a momentary interest. But the newspaper ad carries the brass-tacks quality, the urgency of the newspaper itself. Like a news item, the ad can be examined and re-examined. Can be read any time. Anywhere. Can be clipped and carried in a pocketbook. And just as the newspaper speaks the special language of the town it mirrors, the ads themselves have the same important local quality. Add to all this the fact that the newspaper reaches just about everybody in town, not just fractions of audiences, and you know why the newspaper is the nation's moat effective advertising medium.
