OUR PUBLIC FORUM Peter Radford ON ADVERTISE IT IN AMERICA. , ; " As a citizen' ot this nation and ono Intensely Inter ested in Its material development, I want to add my ap proval to tho "Buy It In America" movement. Commer cial patriotism . And business pride are tho foundation stones of success: n Industry and no country can becomo supremo In conlmerco and trado unless It fosters a spirit of friendship and partiality for Its own products and insti tutions. It is 'the spirit ot tho hlvo that makes the wheels of industry turn and each community should bo a progrosslvo unit In our Industrial universe. All things being equal tho '.farmer should patronize tho local mer chant, who Is always a good citizen, a heavy taxpayer and .friend ot tho farmer. Tho farmer sends shiploads of raw material to foreign markets and factories that meet on their way vessels laden with finished and foreign grown products coming to America. Any effort to minimize this economic waste ought to bo encouraged. But as a farmer and friend ot the manufacturer and merchant I want to BUggest an "Advertise It In America" movement. The manufacturer and Jobber may blow loud blasts on the horn ot patriotism but If they will put an "ad" In tho nowspapers In their trado territory, making a business presen tation ot their goods, they will find it far more effective than waving the Star-Spangled Banner. Tho farmer Is as much lntercstnd In tho price ot the things ho has to buy as In tho prlco ot tho things he has for sale and tho advertising columns ot his newspaper are his price list The- prlco Is tho thing and tho farmer wants the figures ln'cold type. The politicians give him all tho patriotic buncombo ho cares 'for. Business enterprise Is a far more-successful salesman than business patriotism. Thero aro many most worthy organizations working to promote commerce and trade but wo seldom find organized effort to promote tho press, yet it Is recognized as tho most powerful agency for progress the world has ever pro duced. Wo havo all sorts of days calculated to promote, business and honor Industry such as Trades Days, Bargain Days, Labor Days, etc.; why not have a press day and all business concerns advertise the things they have to Bell and everybody subscrlbo for tho local paper and all delinquents pay a year In advance? Thero Is nothing so elevating in civilization as the smile ot an editor and nothing will contribute more toward tho welfare of a com munity than tho prosperity ot tho press. ' Tho farmer Is a friend and patron ot the newspapers. Ho subscribes for the local paper and reads every line in it and It is tho best investment be can make. Thero is no news so valuable as storo news; no Information so Interesting as market demands; no tragedy so entertaining as the rise and fall of prices and no pago more closely studied by tho farmers than the adver tising columns of tho press. , DECLARES DEFENSE IS ONLY INSURANCE Maxim Says U.
