More Communities Should Advertise A curront newspaper para graph Informs ub that 132,000 was spent by the Atlanta, Ga., Chambor of Commerce last year In advertising that city to tho world. Every dollar spent, according to tho report filed, made a fine showing. There Is food for thought In this. Municipalities everywhere could advertise with great advantage to themselves. In many uoctiona booster olubs" are even now do ing fine work, but the number of communities that would profit handsomely by waging the right kind of advertising campaign aro legion. It Is Just as appropriate for a town or city to advertise its at tractions and commercial ndvan tajfea as It Is for a merchant to tell the people about his business. There are many fine cities lu the United States that are known to hundreds of thou sands of people, but only by name, The nation should know more about their municipalities, more about their natural advantages and resources, more why capital should locate there. And there Is no better w&y than by uBing the newspapers.
