Of Baltimore, Addresses “Get Together” Banquet Of Chamber Of Com merce Local Speakers On Spirit Of Co-Operation. NEWSPAPER. HE SAYS, IS CITY’S BIG ASSET Featured by an address l*v Louis F. Kramer, prominent in advertising circles in Baltimore city, who stressed the great im portance to merchants of adver tising their business through the press of their city, as well as giv ing the widest publicity to the home town and its advantages, and by other addresses, the “get together” banquet given by the t hatnber of Commerce last night, was one of the most successful affairs of its kind ever arranged by local merchants. ('O-Operative Spirit Shown Covers for the banquet were spread at the Black Cat dining rooms on Maryland avenue, and there were present not only practically every meml er of the Chamber, but a num ber of other business men, not af filiated with the organization, it was an enthusiastic gathering, and the spirit of co-operation among th business interests of the city along all lines, was rampant throughout the evening. Mayor Jones And Others Speak Clarence M. White, president of the Chamber, presided and acted as toast master during the evening. He too, addressed the gathering, and in ad dition to Mr. Kramer, the other in vited speakers were Mayor Samuel Jones, and Ridgely P. Melvin. A trad ing stamp project which the Chamber has in mind as a means of stimulat ing business, was touched upon in course of the round table discussion that followed the feast. Plans for this soon will be consummated, it Is expected. Kramer On Advertising Addressing the gathering. Mr. Kra mer discouraged the feeling that seems to exist among the business men among a number of small cora nunities that advertising through th newspapers of the home town does not bring them much return. In this connection, the speaker said that a newspaper is one of the city's biggest assets in an advertising way, that the advertising matter in its columns, both as to quality and quanity, is a big gun in the eyes of the stranger is well as people of the community e Newspaper Refleets City A town he said is known largely by the extent to which its merchants advertise; that the people look to the advertising columns as well as the news columns. The man who be lieves in advertising, he pointed out, does not go to the management of a newspaper and talk advertising by the inches. On the contrary is in terested on a much broader scale; he talks about half pages and pages, as the means of acquainting the pub lic with the stock of goods he car ries. Mayor Praises Business Men Mayor Jones told the assemblage that as far as the municipal authori ties are concerned, they always stood ready to co-operate in civic matters. He commended the business spirit of both the Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club, saying that their members had better opportunities to keep in closer touch with different matters, and that the City Council is always open to suggestions. Spirit Of Co-Operation Stressed The topic on which Mr. Melvin was called on to speak was “Co-operation Among Civic Organizations,” the par ticular reference being the Rotary I Club, of which he is an active mem ! her, and the Chamber of Commerce. The speaker summed up his remarks by emphasizing SERVICE as the basis of citizenship and showing the t application of Rotary’s motto “Servico Above Self—He Profits Most Who Serves Best.” Co-operation and not ' j competition, he said, was what both organizations stand for in working | out community betterment.
