DOES ADVERTISING PAV The most common question put to an editor is: “Do you believe advertising pays?” “Advertising is an investment in a business. It is an art that requires considerable thought and study liecause of the many different forms to which it can be used. The outstanding form of advertising is that of using the columns of a newspaper as a medium of reaching into the homes of buyers and prospec tive customers. No other form of advertising is as sure-shot and permanent as a well writ ten and displayed advertise ment on the page of a news paper. Message in a newspaper is as permanent as the home for it lingers in the home long after other forms of conveying the message have been for gotten. Any form of advertising is better than none at all. Radio carries the message directly into the home but only ears that a-ie attentive receive the message. Circulars or form letters reach the addresse in a personal form but only the ad dressse in all probability will read the message. Stamped messages on gifts, etc. become more a secret code than a valu able advertising medium. Advertising in a newspaper reaches every member in a home. When one member in a family reads a newspaper he carefully lays it aside for some one else to read. Every news paper carries a message that is of importance to some one. and this often results in the filing of a newspaper for future refer ence. People do not have a set time to read their news papers. They cjn read a small part during a few idle moments, return later and continue read ing, each time the newsparer ad vertisement appears once more before their eyes. Newspaper advertising is a medium that can never be excelled, —Aztec N. M. In dependent-Review. o 4 ■ - ■■■ - Appel, ‘An old woman,’ John Roche, ‘Prof. Hare.’ “Child dren” E. W.

CASA GRANDE NAI’L MONUMENT, BY RANGER What the Casa Grande Na tional Monument means finan cially to the southern part of Arizona as told by Frank L. Fish, Ranger. “During the past six months 12234 people visited the monu ment, 5015 or 41 per cent of the visitors came from out of the state, including every state is the Union and 13 foreign countries. It is conservatively estimated the average tourist spends approximately five dol lars per day; It to be assumed such is the case, over $25,000 was left in the Southern part of Arizona, within a half day drive of the Monument, by out of state people during the past 6 months, and it might be claim ed the Casa Grande Ruin was the attraction that drew the tourist. The above does not consider the money spent by the 7219 Arizona citizens who felt the Casa Grande enough of an at traction to visit. This amount is left out in order to offset any possible errors. Even in times of depression an attraction that draws $50,- 000 a year to surrounding com munities can be considered an asset. * Os equal importance is the free advertising received by this part of the state when those people return home. People who reccommend tourists to visit local attractions are to be commended on their foresight and cannot be praised too high ly; but, probably one of the worst offenders against the rule is the accasional local person who will go out of his way to run down a local asset. It has caused many people to state the worst enemies of a commun ity are probably some of its own citizens. o Mrs. P. W. Hamilton and her mother, Mrs. S. M. King, spent Wednesday night at the home of Mrs. Kenneth Denton of Casa Grande, another daughter of Mrs. King’s.
