Advertising! Rradstreet’s statdf
ntent that H4 per cent of all failures
are among non-advertisers is signifi
cant. Intelligent advertising has be
come an essential in every modern in
dustry, but what shall the advertiser
do in the face bf the war situation
when he finds it difficult ui till his or
ders? First of all. it should be re
membered that the foundation of ju
dicious advertising is to fix indelibly
the trade mark in. tiie pub
lic's mind. A let-up in that campaign
must be fatal to any product. So we
find George II. Charles, vice-president
of the Nmerican Rolling Mill Com
pany. declaring the company's, pur
pose to continue its advertising, al
though for two and a half years it
had been unable to supply the demand
for its .product. "We are building,"
said he, " a permanent business edi
fice, am, some day we would have to
spend millions of dollars huyipg back
the business and good will of our
clients if they are forsaken in this
emergency." Unless advertising is
kept up without a break the advertiser
loses the result of the initial effort,
ill ere is a warning to the advertiser
who neglects the dull season in sum
mer. When advertisement- are few
est is the very time when a message
to the public will get the most atten
tion. It is good "psychology" to push
the advertisement of a winter pro
duct in summer and of a summer ftro
dltct in winter.—I. e-lie’s.

WATER FOR GRAIN
. AND POTATO CROPS
,«• i 1 --.* t
Investigation Made by State Engineer
Assures Enough Water for
These Two Crops
A called meeting of the water Risers
of Mason Valley under the auspices of
the Farm Bureau was held in Owl
Hall Monday night, it was largely
attended by the patriotic fanners of
this district who are very anxious that
the crops should not fail if coopera
tion ami conservation will save them.
Vic Bernard, chairman of the Irri
gation committee of the Bureau pre
sided and 1£. H. Whitacre was the act
ing secretary. The purpose of the
meeting as explained by VV.-W. Cole
man. deputy State Engineer was to
arrange so that all may have water for
irrigation in spite of the shortage.
The plan adopted is the rotation of
supply, fields needing it most to have
it first, in the order of grain, potatoes,
alfalfa. 'I'll i s plan will undoubted
ly give the most economical and bene
fieial use of the water.
\ committee of five was appointed
to gather data with regard to'the
crops of the valley so that a system
in the use of the waiter can he worked
out. The men chosen were 1*. O.
Stickney. Pete Henrich, C. C. Perry,
Joe Borge ami Geo. Osborne. 1 hey
hate examined the condition of the
crops all over the valley, working
Tuesday anil \\ ednesday, and have
listed the various crops, deciding what
date each field will need water so that
a big head will he available when it
will do the most good. Tjie com
mittee will notify the farmer when it
is his turn to use the water and the
farmer must take it when it is turned
to hint. Any interference with head
gates or laterals as set by the water
conimis-inner will subject tlie guilty
party to the penalties prescribed by
la w .
Investigations made by the State
Engineer and his deputies at the head
waters of the river lead them to think
that there will be nearly enough wat
er to take care of' the crops since it
has been withdrawn from the meadow
lands in the mountains. Information
was received to the effect that pri
vate owners at Twin Lakes are will
ing to release five feet of water for
the use of Mason Valley farmers
which will help some. The offer was
made to the State Council of Defense
and the Food administration.
Cooperation between the committees
for Mason anil Smith Valleys will al
so assist at this time. The Smith
