will read every
word we have to
say. Are you

how your advertising can he
made a sour"- of profit to
you, and how its value can be
measured in dollars and
cents. If you have not, you
are throwing money away.
Advertising is a modern
business necessity, but must
be conducted on busim ss
principles. If you ate not
atisfi (1 with your advertising

amount of mon-i to be spent

note the effect it has in in
creasing your volume of busi
ness; whether a io, 20 or 30
per cent increase. If you
watch this jain from year to

terested in your advertising,
and how you can make it en
