The Right to Advertise
by FESTUS J. WADE, President
Mercantile Trust Company
of St. Louis
I repeat I am prejudiced in
favor of advertising. But I am
not guessing. I have seen
what it has been able to do.
Advertising is almost as nec
essary to the bank, particular
ly the one offering a diversified
service, as it is to the depart
ment store.
It is a powerful force, and no
one deserving the right to ap
ply it to his business should be
denied that right.
