A Few Words About It is fitting that the Kossuth County Advance be displayed at HIP Kpssuth Fair, for the Advance is recognized throughout the entire Uni ted States as a "blue ribbon" newspaper. • The first recognition came in 1920, wheiuthe Advance was chosen one of of two Iowa, newspapers to be Jhe basis of k success feature article in the Country Gentleman. • Schools of journalism all over the country began then to subscribe for the Advance as an exhibit of gojd country weekly journalism, ail(1 have continued. In 1927 the Advance received the highest honor that any weekly could have— being named on Professor John Casey's All - American , Newspaper Eleven. Only 11 papers in the United States could be named, and once so named are barred from 'future listing. The Advance is especially proud of its "Diploma of Merit" on display at its booth i n the Floral hall. In 1928 the Advance, by invitation, was exhibited at the University of Illinois National Community Newspaper Contest, and was again awarded a certificate of "Distinguished Rating," the highest honor. 1 Only this summer, in June, 1933, at the National Editorial Association annual convention at Indianapolis the Advance was named one of the ten best weekly newspapers in the United States. These citations are not made on the basis of "big" advertising editions or on strictly business promotions. They are made on the week-by-week general news coverage, editing and excellence of writing. That is why these citations should mean something to every subscriber of the Advance. The newspaper the subscriber reads each week is also being used as an example of good journalism in the class rooms. It means the subscriber is getting the best in a newspaper — and the best is none too good .for Kossuth readers. If you are not a subscriber why not drop over to the Kossuth County Advance booth at the east side of th e Floral Hall, near the secretary's office, and subscribe. If your subscription is not paid— here's a good opportunity to pay it. In any eveiit, look over the exhibits in the booth—they're worth inspection. I
