C iOne ungrateful man does an injury to all who In NEWSPAPER BEST MEDIUM VTEWSPAPER advertising gets ths credit from manu facturers of one of the most prominent makes of radios for the phenomenal sales record of that ma chine In speaking to those in attendance at theradio manufacturers convention in Chicago recently the vicepresident of this concern said In placing our radio on the market we utilized every recognized form of advertising and today we are convinced that we owe to newspapers the tre mendous success with which our product has met 1 Not only have newspapers occupied a position of economic necessity in carrying the constantly changing message of good radio to millions of readers but their use as an advertising medium by our company has so materially aided in establish ing a constantly increasing demand for our prod uct as to enable us and others to make better radio receiving sets at prices which three years ago would have been scorned by the industry AH of the other formsof advertising which we used were predicated upon newspaper cam paigns It was absolutely necessary that the daily press be utilized in order to make effective such other sales media which we used We estimate that fully 75 per cent of the mil lion users of our radio sets today were first reached and sold on the merits of our product thru the extended newspaper campaigns which we have used and which we shall continue to use Continuing this gentleman gave to the convention his firms reasons for considering newspaper advertis ing the most effective type possible to use They are advertising reaches effectively and at tho lowest net cost the greatest number ot people who can purchase our product with their great influence not only cover our markets geographically city and country but also reach every class of buyer from those possessing the lowest to those having the greatest buying power experience has proved conclusively that newspapers aro moro responsible for the sale of value merchandise than all other types of media which are used to supplement newspaper cam paigns are semipublic utilities They v 4n cloM to their communities and their columns ire manufacturers with products Hevery family should know and own advertising is constant Be Cause of the regularity with which it reaches a given number of people every day its value in sales promotion can be checked definitely and dealer cooperation in relation to advertising like wise can be set down in dollars and cents There is the testimony voluntarily given setting forth why these manufacturers who have ho interest in the newspaper other than as a medium to sell their product consider it the most effective means of ad vertising that can be used out of several available forms The preference is based purely on results care fuily computed and as such stands as an honest opinion backed by experience HOW LEADERS ARE MADE T EADERS are fashioned in part out of rare human stuff and in part out of the needs of their time Their capacities are unfolded and enriched by the stress of circumstances and because some stream of greatness enters into them their powers are multiplied for the strengthening and guidance of others Leaders are in this fashion born rather than of necessity and opportunity v A man is more than a head and hands The spirit that animates him a complex of the things he knows reaches outbeyond him and recreates itselfin others For there arespheres of warmth and light around every human soul which may go forth by mysterious communication to move and sway and motivate the affairs and actions of others In small matters we apeak of these as affection and personality In larger environments they become the attributes of leader ship Follow then your leader Their strength is not alone their own they are In part the servants of your won and purposes They are channels that focus some mighty current of change or progress and npply it to the pressing need They are born of their hour and for their hour Q How many copies of Sonny Boy have been sold C Y A About 1250000 copies Q Who was the first winner of thD Wright brothers medal A S A LieutCorn Clinton H Havill chief of

current comment in the press and individually on the street that this same average taxpayer feels the same way about that legis lative expense account And some critical people will observe with a cold eye the action of the county officers association in establishing a committee to arrange for payment of a full timR lobbyist to work for the county officer expense bill in particular at Des Moines The
