PUT A METER ON CIRCULATION CLAIMS Don't pay your good money for the circu lation claim* of any newspaper, unlets those same claims can be "metered" into proven facts. Every automobile salesman claims his car is the best, but watch them climb the hills. Every newspaper salesman claims his circula tion is the largest, but ask him to prove it. The burden of proof in such a case should be on the newspaper making, or allowing its representative to make, such a claim. The Star's Circulation is accurately "metered." The Star welcomes the opportunity to prove to any merchant or reputable committee in Seattle that its actual paid circulation is In Excess of 40,000 Daily - And The Star welcomes the opportunity to tell you just where this circulation goes— how much in the city and how much in the surrounding towns.
