AN OUNCE OF “KNOW” IS
WORTH A TON OF “GUESS!”
Store ads are INFORMATIVE.
They throw a full light on a majority
of your buying problems—making it pos
sible for you to secure the best possible
VALUES at right prices.
Just as the stories in the news columns
inform you as to the world's happenings,
so do the store ads keep you posted on
buying opportunities.
We often ignore the MONEY VALUE
of simple FACTS. To do this in connec
tion with buying is to substitute "guess
ing" for KNOWLEDGE. And that is a
form of "substitution" which costs
heavily.
It is quite possible that SINGLE FACTS
stated in some of the ads of today may
have a rash value to you of one dollat
each. That is not mere "advertising
talk." Test it by studying the offerings
made.
Industrial, manufacturing, economic,
and retailing conditions nowadays are
undergoing rapid changes. To keep in
touch with every phase of this business
conflict., so far as it affects your own
pocketbook, study the ads with the defin
ite purpose of KNOWING WHAT’S WIIAT
IN THE BUYING PROBLEM.

fascinating with just enough heart
interest to make it appeal to a;i

“WANTED—A HUSBAND”
“Wanted - A Husband.”
Would you answer an ad like that?
Probably you would it you wete
i young and single and knew that the
! person desiring the life partner were
' none other than the pretty Billie
i Burke. Of course most of us know
that Mis Burke is happily married
to Mr. Florenz Ziegfeld, of Follies
fame. "Wanted—A Husband." is
just the name of her new photoplay
which will be on view at. the Coli
seum Theatre Thursday and Friday

The reason why Billie wan's a
husband In the film is that her two;
girl companions in her New York
studio apartments have each acquired I
one. Site is. the “ugly duckling" m
the ensemble—a slovenly girl whoj
is (lie butt of ail their jokes. But j
finally their taunts get her dander tip;
and site not. only goes through <t
course of training and makes her
self a ravishing beauty, but acquires
a handsome young man, first as an
improvised fiance and later as a rea!
one. James h. Crane is the lucky
fellow and Kid Broad, the ex-pugilist
has one of the chief roles. It Is a
Paramount-Artcraft picture.
