Honesty In Advertising
So far as can be, learned from His
tory, the vail of, the world has been
for honest men. t
With.honestjnen in control, every
problem that has confronted civiliza
tion from the beginning to the now
would be solvet..
There wpnld be no poverty, no
crime,, jib'wars. no epidemics, no race
or religious hatreds.no, discord note
No one 'has icver .undertaken to
count the laws that, have been parsed
to make' honesty comptiUory.
1 Vhese statistics, however, are avail-
'abfc: ' lit the' year 1(510 alone there
w te passed' by the Fcddi;.d and State
Legislatures over 44,000 new laws.
A law h something whp.se purpose
ji to co npl ptopl; to do or not do
. ..i: ' ' 1 '
A law, ifjdit, aims to njake men
no tint 'which they would d!o without
I'.'w il'Vfiey were honet.
: ' i
' S3 'it seems that a gieat majority oA
as the applications are made, and the
the cnactmerts passed have a their
object the promotion of honesty.
What has deen the result of all
these hundreds of thousands of laws?
Is honesty any more ol a glut on
the market than it ever was?
The trouble has been this:
The law never changed human na
ture. It never made anybody per
Mankind cannot dc legislated into
goodness. Morality docs not find its
sourse in a legislature, but must leap
straight from the heart.
Just now there is a nation-wide-movement
to make advertising honest.
Kvery decent man in America is
snpporting that movement, and all
over the land advertising clubs and
associations are lifting up their voices
n favor of it.
Perhaps a majority believes the
remedy lies in the law.
k Others feel that there is a better
way and an only way, that ever ban
ished any evil. That way is the
power of public opinion.
Ten years ago dishonest, deceiving
and fake advertising was at its zenith.
Kxaggcration, falsehood, and plain
lying were universal.
The faker and swindler were not
the only offenders, but practically
every advertiser indulged in extrava
gant and unwarranted forms of speech
in promoting his wares.
Then the real work of reform start
ed. Publishers began to refuse that
particular form ol advertising which
was fraudlent on its face.
More and more closely was the
copy scannetl as time passed, until to
day the professional swindler finds
his way so almost completly baired
that his vocation of collecting coin
by fraudlent advertising is about gone.
There still remains that semi-respectable
form of advertising that deals
largely in superlatives and exaggera
tion. Hut progress upward has been
rapitl, anil it has come about, not
beause of law, but'because men are
clearing without enactment that hon
esty; u a paying proposition.

Public opinion is a power above

learn, no law ever made public opin
