Reward for Arrest
Of Fake Advertisers
Mr. \V. A. Hirsch, president of the
United Woolen Mills Company, lias
taken up the cudgel against fraudulent
advertisers and fraudulent advertls- j
Ins. It has lieon Ills hobby for soni'!
time, and lie has before agitated the
subject, but he is now prepared to1
take definite steps to carry out hi,-,
ideas. There is a law in Ohio, ill
which slates Mr. Ilirsch operates ex
tensively, and ho lias offered to the
Advertisers' Club of Cincinnati the
sum of ?50 for each arrest?up to n i
total of six?made of merchant tailor
advertisers for specious advertising,
lie docs not make conviction a con
dition. He will contribute so soon :is
the formal charge is uttered.
The legal phase of the action taken i
is only Incidental so far as Parkers ,
burg and West Virginia are concor- j
ned. The moral is a strong one. Itcr.i i
we have an extensivo user of adver
Using space, not only insistent that1
his own advertising shall be compati
ble with his merchandise but willing
to contribute to n propaganda to make
the high standard ho sets for himself'
applicable to all.
While there liave been a few evl-,
dences of the need in Parkersburg, the
need nevertheless obtains, for pro- j
tecting the consumer against falso 1
and fraudulent advertising matter. J
Honest values have been the rule'
here and so far as Parkersburg is con- ?
cerned no concern that employed nil- j
vertislng for purposos of deceit could;
long withstand. Tills is the general >
rule. But there may be exceptions j
and there, so long as there is no
law to the contrary, always the po
tential danger of exceptions. A law ]
that would compel tho truth in adver
tising would not only prove a protec- j
tion to those merchants who dedicate 1
their advertising to tho truth but It S
would be a lasting bon to the public.

t Dec. 4, 1914.
Mr. Melville Snowden,
The Advertisers' Club,
Replying to your favor of the 28tli
ultimo, would say I will give $50 for
the arrest of any concern in the mer.
chant tailoring line in the city of Cin
cinnati, doing business as the result of
fraudulent advertising up to six cases.
In other words; I want to limit the
expenditure of $300, and want to pa>
it out for every arrest for fraudulent
advertising directly in my line of busi
ness. The reason I am doing this Is
that there certainly enough fakers
in my line in your city who need the
attention of the Advertisers' Club,
without going into other lines. How
ever, 1 am willing to contribute say
$50 towards a general fund if neces
sary, but would prefer the other.
Regarding membership? Just as
soon as you get to arestlng dishonest
advertisers, and show me that you are
doing something, I will certainly send
you a membership fee, as promised,
ours very truly,
