This is because when a customer realizes he has been misled on a sale — even if he buys — he will later react unfavorably to the dealer's establishment. At the very least, he will influence his friends NOT to buy there. The dealer will have made a sale today at the cost of many more tomorrow. Every business man knows that the most effective, least expensive and most enduring advertising in any business — and the car business is no exception — is one customer's recommendation to another It can't be bought except by honest dealings and sincerely living up to advertising claims of quality and service AFTER the sale. There is the true story of a farmer who wanted to (-row better tomatoes. He sent away for a book on the subject after reading a glowing mazagine ad that promised everything the advertising writer's imagination could think of. When the crop was harvested it was no bigger than usual, but the size of the farmer's disappointment made up for it. Puzzled he re-read the book and checked on the instructions whirh he had followed to the letter. He still couldn't figure it out until he re-read the advertisement. Then he found the answer. In a one-senteiite letter to the publishers, he explained the whole thin}-: "The fella that writ the ad," he said, "should of writ the book." it ii. u i; ,,i i.

Co., Algona. Connie*® Column PLASTER PROTECTOR Some walls seem to crumble, the moment you approach them with hammer and nail! Last time we moved, I made a discovery. Picture hooks — or anything that gives a circle of protection around the hole where you're pounding the nail—reduces plaster fall-out. That's why screws work bettor than nails, wherever possible. OPEN SECRET Know what my neighbor does at Halloween, to make sure she doesn't push any little goblins down the steps when she opens the door? She doesn't open it! Takes the storm-window section off, instead. She reaches through that open-air area, hands out the hand-outs ... and sends 'em away un- battered. NINETY PERCENT When ninety., percent of the"best" cooks do ] something one way, it has to be good. Nine out of ten meals served in restaurants, clubs and hotels are booked with gas! it's more economical, faster, easier to control by temperature. But that's just half the reason you'll want a new Gold Star gas range. Ah, what wonderful ideas for us stay-at-home cooks. Eye-level ovens, for instance, keep your meal "table ready," till Dad stops watching TV... easily-clean burners and broilers; dozens of other work and guess- savers! Guess you should see your local gas company or gas appliance dealer. VFW HALL ALGONA First Appearance TUES., OCT. 23 TWO-STEP SAVER Happy tip from a reader vvhd said new cooks would profit by it — but this "old" cook hadn't heard it before. When you bake a pie with a liquid filling (pumpkin, maybe?) set the crust on your gas oven rack first, then carefully pour in the filling. CORNY CUE Non-stick suggestion from (he popcorn state! Mrs. M. VV. Adams of Boonc, Iowa, says you'll avoid syrup burns and sticky fingers, if you form popcorn balls in an ample square of waxed paper. More waxed paper, or colored cellophane, wraps each ball separately, for Trick-or-Treaters. GOLDEN NUGGETS Our friend from Friend, Mrs. C. P. Christiansen, says these are ideal Halloween cookie treats. You'll want to repeat them for Christmas: Combine 1 cup peanut butter with 1 Tbsp. lemon juice. / Gradually stir in l l / 3 cups siuectcned condensed milk. Mix in 1 cup coconut and >/f tsp. salt. Drop by spoon on greased baking sheet, one inch apart. Bake 10 minutes in 350-degreo gas oven. Makes about 36 sweet treats. FAMED FLAME When ancients first discovered the "constant flame that left no ashes," they erected a temple and called the flame a god! Now, this "god" is your servant, and mine — natural gas. The more gas you use in your home—for cooking, cooling, heating, clothes drying and the like—: the more time and money you save! Your local gas company sends you the "constant flame," with natural gas from the pipelines of Northern Natural Gas Company. Are you using it all the ways you could?
