EVENING CALL WANT "ADS" ARE ESSENTIAL IF
YOU WANT TO GET RESULTS IN A HURRY!
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL AND POST, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1913
MARKS ADVANCE IN
R. Miller of the Owl Drug company, who lauds merger of The
Call and Post
Business and Professional Men of City Unite in Praising
Management of Consolidated Papers
San Francisco's business and profes
sional men are enthusiastic over the
merger of The Call and the Evening
Post. Some of the most prominent
today warmly congratulated the new
consolidated paper, declaring that it
had already placed San Francisco on a
new journalistic level.
One of the most enthusiastic is R.
Miller, president of the Owl Drug
company. "It la a bully paper," he
said, summing up the general opinion.
Here are the statements in full:
H. E. Miller, Owl Drug company—The
advertising situation in San Fran
cisco has long been a perplexing
problem. The merging of The Call
and Post has simplified matters
greatly, and I congratulate The Call
for making the move.
Mr. Kellogg did a big thing for
the advertisers when he took The
Call out of the morning field, and
his last achievement is even more
beneficial to the buyer of advertis
ing space in the daily papers.
San Francisco had too many
newspapers. It was impossible to
use them all. Better one great, big,
constructive paper that stands for
the upbuilding of this community
than several weak ones. The Call
and Post will be a success.
The Owl Drug company is using
space in The Call now ana will con
tinue to do so.
J. C. Zellerhaeh of the Zellerbaeh Pa
per Company: The consolidation of
The Call and The Post was one ot
the greatest things I ever heard of.
It will mean much to San Fran
cisco. It will mean that The Call
and Post will be a great newspaper,
greater than it has been in the past.
Mr. Kellogg has introduced several
new things into the Journalism of
San Francisco, among which the
purchasing of his competitors Is a
prominent one. My best wishes for
The Call and Post. 1 wish It a
merry Christmas and a happy New
A. Katsrhlnakt of the Philadelphia
Shoe Company: This will undoubt
edly be beneficial to the city. As
for ourselves, we regard lt as do
all large advertisers: it Is a good
thing, enabling us to reach a
larger number of persons through
the combined circulation.
G. A. I.enolr of Bare Brothers: Consol
idation is always good. It results
In Improved service, and this par
ticular consolidation will have a
marked effect. I am glad to see any
move In San Francisco which tends
toward harmony. (Jiving greater
opportunity to concentrate advertis
ing, the merging of the papers will
be especially beneficial to the busi
S. N. Booker, president Bucker-Puller
l»f«W Company: 1 believe the amal
gamation of the two papers a good
thing, from the advertisers' stand
point. The advertisers seem to ap
predate that. The feeling of sat
isfaction at this development is gen
. eral. rt shows enterprise on the
part of The Call.
U • s. Hheem, vice president of the
>*nndard OH com pan y of < aII torn la i
There was not room enough in San
Francisco for the two papers run
ning separately. The Call was un
doubtedly the better paper of the
two. I regard the consolidation as
a good thing.
B. F. Thomas, of W. 4k J. Sloane: This
is a decided improvement. It is bet
ter to see one big paper pre-eminent
in the afternoon field than to see
more struggling against one an
B. Munro, manager of the Frank H.
Walker gas stove store: The general
Impression, which I share. Is that
is a good development In San
• Francisco's Journalistic field. It will
react to the benefit of the reading
and advertising public as well. The
Call is to be congratulated.
Barney Frankel, Men's Furnishings—
Accept my congratulations. By
combining The Call with the Even
ing Post you have given the adver
tisers of San Francisco a far supe
rior advertising medium, for in con
centration lies strength, and by cut
ting out unnecessary duplication a
great saving for the advertiser is
>la\ Sommer of Sommer £ Kaufman:
San Francisco merchants welcome
the new combined paper. It simpli
fies advertising and it means also
that The Call, which has been an
excellent paper from its first issue
in the afternoon field, will be even
C. P. Hoag, Beal Batata—The In
creased efficiency demonstrated al
ready by the merging of The Call
and The Post Is noticeable. I have
been a reader of both papers, and
they have each had forces that,
when brought together, cannot help
but contribute to the upbuilding of
Frank Werner, Walkover Shoe Stores
—The first , issue of The Call as an
afternoon paper was a success. I
have been a constant reader of it
ever since. Its absorption of one
of its competitors is a great stroke
of business enterprise, which will
be beneficial to itself and to adver
tisers. With the added facilities
In the news line The Call and Post
will, if it maintains' its policy of
the last few months, get the support
of all San Franciscans.
A. 1.. Peyser of S. HF, Wood A, Co—l
think the advertisers will be bene
fited more than any one else by the
consolidation of The Call and The
Post. It means more subscribers
and affords simpler methods for the
advertising merchant. The Call and
Post already has made an Impres
sion with the people of San Fran

Accused of disturbing the peace, fc..
Carlson, a pressman employed by the

Shortall. His attorney, Joseph Taafe.

that Carlson has been once in jeop

he was about to be attacked by union
