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."
Homemakers Learn to Conserve Time.
Many homemakers over the state co
operated with home demonstration
agents and university extension spe
cialists last year in carrying on dem
onstrations and keeping records. In
81 communities, adopting projects, 211
home demonstrations were established.
About 220 -women made and are using
fireless cookers, and 83 installed com
mercial cookers. Women carrying on
home demonstrations in time saving
by using a fireless cooker over a per
iod of five months, reported a saving
of 351 hours of time. A good home
made fireless cooker which will last
for several years can be made, all
complete, for $4.50.
