KELLEY KEMP'S BALSAM tn the issue of October 2?, Mr.'Ed. F. Summers, of the Advocate-Democrat of Marysville, Kens., says: HAVE MADE FRIENDS About three years ago the Standafi Oil Company began a campaign of public ity which covered the whole country. No attempt was made to pay any atten tion to what had been charged up against the organization in that distant past, but a plain statement was sent out showing the attitude of the company, the diversity of its ownership and its po'icy in dealing with the public. And that campaign has been effective. No longer do you hesr Rockefeller and the Standard Oil contin uously roasted by the general public Other •goats" have been picked up and ih every section you will hear the admis sion made that the Standard Oil Lo. gives service and piiej up profit by being coa tent to work on a small margin and de velop a bigger business. The experience is well worth thinking over for it goes to show what we have always contended and that is that the average man is fair and only wants to be shown. Take him into your confidence if your business is legitimate and you silence knocking. The Standard Oil has won favor by its policy of publicity and the favor is deserved. spontaneous response which the announcements of this Company have received from many of the newspapers of the country has been most gratifying. That such a response has come from a bet ter understanding of the Company, its pur poses and its policies goes without saying. It is purely a matter of getting acquainted. w Those we do not not know we are apt to sus pect. Those we do know we respect if respect is deserved. The Board of Directors intend that this Com pany shall deserve the respect of its customers, its employes, its stockholders and its competitors by maintaining a policy of fair dealing. The operations of this Company are carried on with a straightforward directness, and with the deep conviction that bigness is possible only through service that through service cc volume, and through volume come profits.
