WHY THE WORD "ADVERTISE-
Under a recent ruling of the United
States Postoffice Department, pub
lishers are compelled to "label all
editorials or other reading matter,
other than displayed advertisements,
for the publication of which money
or other valuable consideration is paid
accepted, or promised, with the word
ADVERTISEMENT printed in full."
Increase Advertising Is Babson's
Roger W. Babson, statistician and
business authority, is advising Amer
ican business men and manufacturers
to renew and even increase their ad
vertising. He says: "It takes no little
courage to go counter to the popular
current and spend money for adver
tising when immediate returns are
smaller than usual, but I am con
vinced that the man who has the
foresight and courage will gain ad
vantagea running startthat will
carry him through the coming periods
of improvement and prosperity. Take
the aggregate course."
