YOU AND "Advertising
4O- Is the Business
Many a man has
gone down to rain
because he has let
* the public run his
business. He has extended credit
when he couldn't afford it. Adver
tising would have saved him. To
use advertising for something
more than selling goods is one of
its greatest advantages. Tell your
store's policy regarding credit,
telephone orders, deliveries and
other abused privileges and the
public will respect and patronize
you the more.
Advertising corrects abuse'
as well as it exploits virtue

mentioned. Paul Warburg, formerly a

clooset the new director general of the
