One day, recently, a drummer dropped in and opening up his sam ple cases began to make himself agreeable. All went well and he was getting the merchant interested when he came to Crestent baking powder. Then, as the drummer elab orated on their advertising scheme, the interest of the merchant in creased. And thereby hangs a tale. Crescent baking powder is manu factured by a Seattle firm. Accord ing to this drummer, who is interest ed in the firm, they are about to em bark on an intensive scheme of ad vertising.

We invite them to do it. It will be a fitting finale to an o,rge of reaction.
