THE" DETROIT- 99 V. ft PRESS TUESDAY DKCEMBBR 18, l0- 16' EWALD DEVISES SPENDING PLAN Present Advertising Idea Designed to Induce Citizens to Buy Now. The mayor's unemployment committee will discuss at Its regular meeting, next Monday, the proposal of Henry Ewald, of the Campbell-Ewald Advertising company, that H sponsor an advertising campaign urging citizens to expend their funds In order to provide more work In the factories. Ewald submitted to the committee a plan for creating an optimistic feeling among those who have the money to spend. "There are many who have not been affected by the depression, but who hesitate to spend because of the psychological effect which the depression creates," Ewald told the committee. "If we get those people to buy, instead of keeping their funds in the banks, I am sure that the unemployment problem would be solved. When people buy their expenditures go back into ages." Suggested National Campaign. Ewald suggested that perhaps the advertising idea should betaken up with Washington, pointing out that a national drive through newspapers, magazines and billboards would make the public realize that by buying now they would start the country back on the road to prosperity. He believed that a local campaign would accomplish much in this direction and suggested that the Detroit Adcraft club be consulted. He urged that the committee take some action which would encourage merchants and manufacturers to enter into such a drive, stating that the longer those who can buy fall to do so, the longer the depression will continue. "Policemen, firemen and many other workers are getting the game pay they received during the more prosperous days," Ewald stated. Manufacturers Give Views, William J. McAneeney, president of the Hudson Motor Car company, did not believe that the local committee could take up the matter of a national campaign. K. T. Keller, of the Chrysler Motor Car corporation, expressed the opinion that to be effective the plan would have to be national in scope. Eugene LewiR, of the Industrial Morris Plan bank, also opposed the committee sponsoring such a drive. Frank X. Martel, president of the Detroit Federation of Labor, first moved that O. Hall Roosevelt, chairman of the committee, name a sub-committee to take up Ewald's suggestion, but later withdrew the motion. Dr. Frank Adams had the matter put over a week for discussion. Colonel Heinrlch A. PIckert, commanding officer of the 182nd Field Artillery, informed the committee that within a few days the army will deliver in Detroit 500 regulation cots for a public lodging house for unemployed men. The cots are teing shipped from Grayling on order of Colonel LeRoy Pearson, quartermaster-general of the Michigan National Guard. FORMER DIANE ELLIS, FILM STAR, DIES IN INDIA Los Angeles, Dec. 15 (A.
