This season roads to benefit will be: three miles north from Swea City; 3 miles north on No. 169 from the Mb. 9 paving north at Lakota; 8% miles east from Bancroft; 5% miles Burt to Lone Rock. Another stretch, asked for but not expected to be granted, Is seven miles east from Algona on. McGregor. These roads are already WHEN SHOULD A B USINESS men often talk about the problem of when they should advertise most. Should it be when business is good and sales come easily or when business Is slow and sales are hard? Those who believe in advertising most intensively when everybody has money, argue logically enough that it Is wise, as Shakespeare himself pointed out several centuries ago, "to take the tide when it serves." Advertising then will prove of most value, some men believe. Those, on the other hand, who believe a business should spend money for telling its story most aggressively when times are slow, say chmrles Both that advertising Is a business-building torce and that It Is, therefore, needed most when business needs building. Whenever we have a temporary lull in business we see the spectacle of many advertisers "drawing in their horns" and refusing to spend money for advertising until times •re easy once more. The late P. D. Armour, great packing magnate, had the sanest view on the subject He always told his associates: "Advertise when times are good, because then your dollars show greatest returns. Advertise when times MAN ADVERTISE? ire poor, because If you don't ad- drlisc then your public won't know what you have to-sell." The public responds Immediately o the man with courage enough to nvest his money in advertising even when the condition of the market Is tot so good as-he would like to see t. The public responds always to courage. In 1921, when America had a short business depression, A. W. Brickson, now dead, made the directors ol traffic. The roadis will be graded 26 feet The county some 1800 miles of all- roads, Including 1200 graveled but carry heavy wide and graveled. company in which he was interested, agree to spend $150,000 a month tor advertising during the next 12 months. Business fell off. The directors wanted. to renege. Mr. Erlckson wouldn't let them. He made them spend their monthly advertising allowance. He had faith. When prosperity returned, as it always does, that company, because of courageous leadership, skyrocketed to the top, a position it still holds. What had happened was that its public, you consumers, read those advertisements and subconsciously became friendly to a business which would continue to tell you Its story, in bad times as well as In good. The public reciprocated by giving it its trade. Whenerer a business man advertises It shows'-he has faith In him- 1 self, In his community, In Us goods and In <• his:customers. He Is a good business man with whom to trade. O Charlei B.
