Algona, Rt. 1, 2 Tears Subscription "The advertisement that appeals to me most in your latest issue of the Algona Upper Des Moines is the advertisement of The Goeders Company. "The reasons I like this particular j advertisement are: first, that it has I large lettering and pictures. When you glance over a paper of any type, largest lettering takes your eye's attention first. Secondly, this advertisement suggests Christmas and Christmas gifts with the word 'Chrtetmas' printed on it and also the holly leaves and berries scattered here and there over the top. Thirdly, this advertisement has illustrations of one of its main lines of stock besides suggesting Ks more minor lines. "Also the prices are given. There Is no doubt left in your mind about the price. When the prices are not printed a person Is given the feeling that the price is so high the dealer is ashamed to print it or is trying to snare you Into his store nnd then persuading you to buy after you get there. 1 ' Second Prise, Lucia Wallace, Algona One Year Subscription "I choose the Zender & Caldwell ad as the best ad in your excellent paper of this week. First, because it shows such a generous Christmas heart back of its bigness. Second, it invades so many of your buying thought chambers with Just the right suggestions. After reading them you are confident that your gifts are going to give the utmost pleasure to the lucky men to whom they go. "Boys will grow an inch and carry heads high in the nobby new sweater and swell with pride in the snappy top coat. "Third, the wording is clever: 'Shades as mellow as a cello'; isn't that alluring. 'Gifts that respect a man's right," timely too. "Fourth, It is attractively printed, arranged and spaced. The little Christmas touch of holly and bells make it ring to me as a topnotcher." Third Prize, L. S. Bohannon. Algona, One Tear Subscription "The advertisement I like best is the add of the Shirley Radio & Electric Company, advertising the General Electric washer. "My reasons are: "First—it attracts attention. This is accomplished by a picture of the washer and the white letters on the black background. "Second—It arouses interest. This is accomplished by the words "Claims must be proved" and "General Electric Washer," and the four ways In which this washer will make a saving. "Third—It produces conviction. This is accomplished by short clear sentences, four things the washer will do, and the thought, "But our word for it—try it. 1 ' don't take xtxaBaxecKxxoe^ Speaking for mysdf and for the (-loodrieh Tire & Rubber <A>., let me say A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Clapp's Master Service "Fourth—It impresses the memory. This is accomplished by the illustration, the trade mark, name of the washer In heavy type, the savings in time, effort, money, and clothes and the features. "Fifth—It produces action. This is accomplished by asking you to prove Its claims In your own home, and by the words, 'Reduced to $49.50.' "The layout of this ad Is very effective. By making a break in the border, and placing th e illustration at this break, it guides the eye through the ad, and leads it up to the block where the reduction in price is noted." Fourth Prize, C. S. Erlander,, advertising manager, I» S. Donaldson Co., Minnapolls, Minn. "Sirs: To my mind, the advertisement of Bjustrom's in your Dec. 13 issue, wins by a nose. First of all, it has attention compelling qualities in its border, and the use of white space. It has change of face in type, using italic and typewriter type to good advantage. Again, it has an appeal to both men and women, and tells the story briefly and emphatically. There were many good advertisements, however, so I won't feed badly if I don't win. Regards to yourself. *** Fifth Prize, Mrs. George Haclunan, A'gona, 6 months &ub. (Although Mrs. Hackman did not adhere strictly to writing about one ad, her reply is such that we have awarded her fifth prize anyway). "The first ads I read are the grocery #ds. They have such nice specials for the week end. One knows Just what each article costs and I have heard that to win a mans' heart is through his stomach. "I enjoy reading Qoedera & Co. ads for they have such nice large ads and are easy to read. Their style pictures are very becoming to the figure. Chrlschilles & Herbst remembers the large women in their ad and it is such a comfort to know you can get a perfect fit at their store. "I like Chrlstensen Bros, ad because tt tells you in a simple way just what they have and you can depend on it being as good as they advertise. "Nelson Hardware itemized many articles to give the husband a good Idea what to buy the wife. "I always read the classified ads to see what folks have to sell and to see if there is anything I want. It !••> such a quick and cheap way to advertise through this column. "I like Jimmle Neville's ad because I feels he always tells the truth.'
