Fred Kent is now storing some of his machines at the fair grounds and rather than keep them there is advertising them on a "what will you offer" basis.' • * * ADVERTISING is something that can't be hit and miss and "get results. One local grocery plans its advertising for a full month ahead, and It brings results! Consistency is the gem of advertising. By using space consistently, the advertiser increases the value of his ad each successive appearance. Small advertisers are especially directed to the possibilities in the tabloid section introduced by The Upper Des Moines this week. * * * BJUSTROM'S and BLOOM'S are closing out a number of Items this week, as outlined in the tabloid.
