VALUE OF COMMERCIAL CLUBS Cha n g — That They Have Brought About In the Way of Trade and Progr—e Hew Publicity Campaigns Help hi Booming Towns. There ace many ways to advertise a town, but all of them require keeping eternally at it. The world will believe almost anything if told it often enough. A story made familiar has the weight authority and accepted belief in its favor. That^ more than half the bat tle. Pereeverence, public spirit and printer's Ink produce progress. If that Is not sufficiently alliterative, add push as another ingredient. One necessary feature of advertising for home trade and growth is novelty. There are so many new things in this age that people have come to look for tbs new. Whatever they may think of new thought, they at least want new sensations and new entertainment. This element of novelty in advertising was recently exhibited by Muscogee, Okla. Muscogee may be a young town, but is oldtenough to have a commercial club and a get-up-end-go spirit that should carry her far. Recently her commercial club started 100 of the town's most hustling citizens out on the road to tagk for trade and progress. "Count 'em! One hundred!" That is quits a bunch\of people for a munici pality of that Size to rally forth as ad vance agents of prosperity. But the town that Is not afraid of doing big things is the one that is on the way to becoming a big town. The most ncrel feature of Musco gee's delegation was this badge pinned to each of these hundrecThnen: of WATER-WAYS. , RAIL-WAYS, k / AL-WAY9— MUSCOGEE, OKLAHOMA. W« burn natural gas, coal, oil—and money. JUST WRITE. Another way In which. Muscogee Bhowed that she is alive was by re viving river transportation. Though she has thr— navigable -streams, the railroads maneuvered to get all the trade and to shut off water commerce. Then the merchants got into the game, the railroads after having killed the boat trade showing a disposition to raise rates. The same commercial club already mentioned bought a boat three years /ago and began navigating it at a profit. Two-years later another boat was built, and it, too, is more than paying its way. Thus rates have not only been lowered, but the town has been enabled to advertise Its wa ter routes as an Inducement to manu facturers to locate* in its midst. An example of; what may be done for a city by Judicious, plentiful and persistent advertising is shown by Los Angeles. In the memory of those mow living she was g. little Mexican town of 10,000, without life, business or prospects. In those sleepy days she had the same delightful climate as now. The only, trouble was that no body knew of itfis charms. Now all the world knows tlftem. The story off the campaign of pub licity by whyfch this fame has been carried abroad is alao the story that tells how Lcis Angeles has grown into a beautiful and thriving city of 300,000 people. That transformation has not been accidtental. It did not come of itself. It did not fall as manna from the skies or arrive as a matter of course. Like everything in this world worth having, it was planned for, worked, foi* fought for. It started by people in <E.og Angeles believing in Los Angeles. They unibtd to spread their belief throughout the world. In print er's ink. they found a messenger swift er anA more potent than Mercury. By keeping this sleepless messenger busy throughout the years the miracle has bven wrought, and tbie end is not yet. ,K.'he advertising has only begun to do its work. In the development of the new and greater Pasciflcr civilization Los Angeles has before her a future that it would be ldlô to attempt to prophesy. America hats no*, begun to grow, and any American town has be fore her a like opportunity Sf she but seizes and makes the best of it. It may not be as great an opportunity as that of Los Angeles, but if so it differs only in degree, not In kind. A tale similar to tha t of "the City of the Angels" could b<h told of Spo kane, Seattle and other rapidly grow ing towns of the Pacific coast. • Yet the epic of progress is hç- • no mea'os confined to the west. One of its mosi v thrilling cantos recounts the manner In which Louisville, Ky., -was changed from a city of factional tights and feuds that gained her a bad abroad to one united for home trade and upbuilding. As in the case of Muscogee, the change was wrought largely by a commercial club. Be cause of its intelligent work strangers are no longer advised, to shun Louis ville, but the impression is going abroad that she is a city with a future in which It is well to locate. The same song is heard on the At lantic coast. Boston, Providence and even New York are organizing publici ty campaigns in behalf of larger trade. All of this bears out the verdict of tfie Municipal Journal, which puts it thus: "It has become a more or less uni versal opinion in most sections of the country that any city that does not make some active effort at direct ad vertisement Is dead and sure to fall behind the time." name : : > JAMES A.
