GET CONFIDENCE OF WOMEN, PLEA (Continued From rage One.) ■nd rightly so among yourselves, but you should be telling the homemaker about it, so that she will know that the advertising men are on her side In eliminating that advertiser who abuses advertising In an effort to sell false value. “Woman's confidence la advertising bears a direct ratio to her response to it. “If she has an 80 per cent confidence, ahe buys 80 per cent. If slie has only a 20 per cent confidence, she buys only 20 per cent” "New and Significant Developments in Advertising.” was the general subject for the session. The program included, besides Mrs. Frederick, the following papers: “The Clean-Up, Paint-Up Movement,” by Itoy Soule, vice president; A. C. Penn Com pany, New York; “What Applied and Practical Psychology Is Doing to Short en the Distance Between Human Minds,” by Dr. A. I. Gates, Columbia university. New York; *‘Uow the Better Business Movement Is Enhancing the Value of AH Legitimate Advertising,” by Richard H. Lee, special counsel. Associated Advertis ing Clnbs of the World, and "Co-opera tive Advertising as a Social, as Well as a Powerful, Sales Force.” by Don Fran cisco, advertising manager of the Califor nia Fruit Growers’ exchange. Recenuy there has been quite an epi demic of co-operative campaigns, Mr. Francisco told the advertisers. “In nearly every line there is a lot •f educational work that should be done by an industry as a whole rather than by the Individual members. Industries, as a whole, are Just finding this out. I believe that we are only be ginning to appreciate the great possibili ties of 00-oper£tion in advertising and that In this form of operation advertising will reach Its highest plane both as a social and su economic force.” MUST DRIVE AT FUNDAMENTALS. He said that co-operative campaigns ean not trifle with details —they drive straight at fundamentals. He had asked one of his associates, he •aid, vo compile a list of the co-operative advertising campaigns that have ap peared In recent years, allowing an aver age of five lines in which to set down the purpose of each campaign, who was bahlnd it and what It had accomplished, and when the report was banded to him It contained seventeen pages of type written matter. "More than half these campaigns have been Instituted to increase the consump tion or use of various products: among these farm products preaominate. “Oranges, lemons, grapefruit, apples, peaches, raisins, beans, prunes, apricots, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cheese, eggs, milk and cranberries have been adver tised co-operatively by associations of farmers. "A majority of these farmers' associa tion! are on the Pacific coast, where the element of distance necessitates the band ing of farmers to overcome transconti nental obstacles. "Among the products advertised co-op eratively by groups of manufacturers we have electric hoists, granite, lumber, toys, woolen fabrics, bread, books, bicy cles, magnetos, linen, barrels, millinery, bricks, gas, macaroni, noodles and lin oleum. In some campaigns, such as those on tea and coffee, both producers and distributers have banded together to launch the advertising for their mutual benefit. CITES INSTANCES OF BIG SUCCESSES. "The second great group of co-opera tive advertising campaigns comprises those which aim to sell sn Idea or a service. "Thus we have the very constructive campaign of the Interchurch world move ment. “We find the United Typothetae ad vertising to help printers become better printers, while the knit goods manufac turers and others are seeking, through eo-opcratlve advertising, to educate their Made to be more efficient merchants. “The lumber interests are urging home building, the tailors show the impor tance of careful dress, the optical in terests are teaching people the Impor tance of wring for their eyes, groups of bankers are selling the broad princi ples of thrift and security, the book pub lishers call our attention to the value of book reading.” After outlining still other types of co operative advertising, he said: “Then there are several more unusual co-opera tive campaigns, such as that run in New Tork last December to warn Christmas shoplifters that a certain group of mer chants had set strong snares for them. "And in England & number of motor car manufacturers got together and used advertising to blacklist their profiteering middlemen. “The needle manufacturers have em ployed co-operative advertising to recruit new workers from the ranks of idle girls. Another co-operative campaign, based on sound economics, is that urging us to buy our coal early, thus spreading ship- Sents over a longer season and prevent g altitudinous prices.” After touching upon various other fea thres of co-operative advertising, he Bald that “in these days, and those Just ahead of us. uniformity in the rate of production and selling, with its conse quent effect on the level of prices and employment of labor, Is of tremendous importance, and co-operative advertis ing can do much for the laboring man that will be a social service.” Statistics were given by him relative to the sales of citrus fruit from Califor nia. He closed by saying that “when we know that co-operative advertising has widened .markets, stimulated industry, stabilized selling, improved merchandise and lowered costs; when we know that it has been used to make us take better eare of onr eyes, live better, read more good books, put more money In the hank, and give more to the church; when we know that It has brought businesses and business men closer together In a spirit of comradeship and mutual service; I do not think that wo can then doubt that co-operative advertising is not only a powerful sales force, but a social service as well.” “America Is now In a position to cap ture world markets. The opportunity Is oars. Whether we make the most of the opportunity is entirely up to the Ameri can business man,” Mr. Lee said. "Necessity may for a time bring the world to our doors as a customer, but when present conditions have changed and we again meet the competition of the other countries of the world in com merce the question as to whether we shall continue to enjoy the trade of the world will depend to a large degree on Just what the world thinks of us and the number of world customers to whom we can refer as satisfied customers. MUST SAFEGUARD OUR GOOD NAME. “We should strive to make America known as a safe place in which to shop,” be continued. “We should meet foreign conditions as far as possible. “We should Impose no unnecessary change In their present method of con ducting their business. “Goods should be packed so that they will arrive in good order. "Every precaution should be taken tc see that the product and the use to which It is to be put is thoroughly understood by the purchaser, but above all we should strive to be truthful In our description of the product, so thn’ there may be no disappointment upo,i its arrival, and the customer should be satisfied in every possible case and made to forget his distance from the Ameri can factory” Mr. Lee then touched upon the work o t the Associated Advertising Clubs ol the World, and said that “through the medium of the organization, foreign na Says Posters Helped Uncle Sam in War ' ml ■ tmirn ‘ j Ijilt w- W.

C. j Penn Company of New York City, speak ing on the “Paint-up. Clean-up” move- | ment. declared that "the greatest ad- * vertislng campaign on record, emanated | from a trade that spends comparatively little money in publicity, and Is the re sult of a campaign in which few dollars were spent and hundreds of thousands of dollars have been collected.” TELLS OF ORIGIN OF PHRASE. The paint-up and clean-up campaign had its Inception, he declared, with bd ’ editorial in the American Paint and OH I Dealer of St. Louis, in which It pledged j itself to conduct a campaign in the coun- j try to induce the people to paint up and j clean up, not only for one specific occa sion. but for all time. Manufacturers of paint and kindred I products, at that time contributed $l,lOO. to which 82,500 was added by the pub lisher of the magazine, and in one year, clean-up campaigns were instituted In 1,100 towns of the coui^ry. “Business men and newspapers got behind the movement, with their adver tising, and editorials, and as a result about every city, town and village in the country has had a clean-up cam paign. ALL JOIN IN CLEANUP DRIVES. "At the present time more than 8.000 cities and towns are conducting cleanup movements, and the mayors of cities as well as governor* of states are lending co-operation In the work.** Since the organization of the move ment in America, he declared. It has spread to many foreign countries. At the close of Mr. ftnuie's address, I Allan \V.

"Uncle Sam’s Venture Into Paid Ad vertising,” was the subject of an address given by James O’Sbangnessy, secretary of the Associated Advertising Agencies of New York, given in place of O. H.

Mr. O’Shaughnessy told of the co operation given by advertising agencies of the country to the army and navy, in conducting their recruiting campaigns. Through the medium of the advertising campaigns conducted in the interest of recruiting, the cost of obtaining one man for the service was reduced from $95 to 820 per man, he said. In spite of the tendencies of the recent congress to cut. appropriations and ex penditures. he said, an appropriation was made for the recruiting advertising of the army and navy, entirely through the showing made by the advertising campaign.

ONCE PROUD SHIP ROLLING AT DOCK Received Homage as Official Yacht of Cleveland. MUSKEGON. Mich., June 9.—Chained against a littered and decaying dock in Muskegon harbor, to prevent it from slipping to the bottom, is a shabby lit tle steamer, neglected and weatherbeaten, the plaything of adventurous schoolboys. The faded name Pathfinder on the bow means nothing in particular; but uuder the scaling paint is another name, Ruth, reminiscent of former glories. It recalls the days when the little boat rode proudly between rows of thunder ing battleships and dipped her colors to the presidential salute. For the semi-derelict old craft was ©nee the presidential yacht Ruth, the Mayflower of President Cleveland’s ad ministration. For several years this boat appeared ©fteD In the dally history of the coun try, often carrying President Cleveland and other prominent officials on cruises along the Atlantic coast. It was named after Ruth, daughter of the president, and during his adminis tration it appeared in print as often as the Mayflower of today. Built In Philadelphia, It was consid ered at that time one of the best equipped yachts on the ocean. Shortly after the Ruth was launched President Cleveland and several con gressmen made a trip to the south. A severe storm was encountered and fears were expressed for a few days aa to the safety of the president. The boat weathered thg storm In ex cellent shape, however. It was later sold to persons in Buf falo and later purchased by the Chicago Yacht club. The boat was for Severn: years its flagship. Finally the boat was brought to White Lake, where many Chicago persons have their summer homes. It was used as a private boat for some time and them as a livery between Whitehall and White Lake resort. For several seasons the boat mado trips between the town and the resort and later between White Lake and Mus kegon. The old boat at first attracted much attention, but finally even its history was forgotten by ail but a few. Then the boat was remodeled slightly and used by lira! fishermen. For two or three years it made dally trips on Lake Michigan. Even then it was considered one of the host fishing craft on the great lakes The host is owned by Phillip Schnor- I aoh. former pcstmaster of Muskegon, now a manufacturer at Manistee; be pur • based It five years ago. It is expected also to disclose with a remarkable degree of accuracy, the depth of water wherein the ship so equipped Is Boating. One of these formulas was handed down to the white man, and for more than fifty years has been used as S. S. S., which is recognized ns the best known blood medicine on the market. This fine old remedy Is still made as of old from roots and herbs of proven medicinal value. In fact, physicians everywhere recognize the wonderful effi cacy of these roots, and they are pre scribed In some form or other almost dally. And now, after being In constant use for more than half a century, S. S. S. Is more popular than ever.

She said that her food soured In her stomach until it tasted like acid. “On account of her kidney trouble she was often compelled to arise four or five times during a night. Her feet would swell and I often noticed puffy pouches under her eyes.
