Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 4, 1965, Mason City, Iowa Whats in a name A fortune Billions made i renting lists By DENNIS DUGGAN New York Herald Tribune Newt Service Sukarno is expected to try to set up a little U JAKARTA Indonesia AP Indonesian President Sukarno is expected to try to form an or ganization of young nations as a rival to the United Nations It is believedhere that In donesias opposition to the seat ing of Malaysia on the UN Se curity Council was only a pre text for quitting the world or ganization which the Indone sians claim has degenerated into a mere tool of the United States and Britain Sukarno is thought to envision Indonesia taking the lead in a new organization of what he calls the new emerging forces as against theiOldfos old established forces Hhas had no success with such ideas in the past In 1963 Sukarno got little sup port whenhe withdrew Indone sian athletes from the Olympic Games after he set up the games of the new emerging Ganefo Nor did he draw much sup port last October at the second conference of npnaligned na tions in Cairo when he said their approach was outdated and should be replaced by his con cept of the new emerging forces However Sukarno might pro pose a regional grouping similar to the Organization of African Unity that would not require other nations to pull out of the United Nations An occasion for him to put forth this proposal would be the second African Asian conference in Algiers in March There was no word from the presidential palace in response to UN SecretaryGeneral U Thants appeal to Sukarno to reconsider his withdrawal deci sion Foreign Office officials were not available for comment since Monday is a Moslem holi day Indonesian diplomats at UN headquarters in New York were believed preparing a for mal withdrawal statement to follow up their oral declaration on Friday Philippine newspapers noted with concern that both Commu nist China andIndonesia t he Philippines two largest neigh bors were now out of the United Nations and beyond its moder ating influences The general expectation in Manila was trou ble ahead In Cairo the governmentcon trolled newspaper Al Masaa said it disapproved of Indone sias withdrawal from the Unit ed Nations and called on Sukar no to reconsider The paper said the move would be tantamount to fleeing from the international battlefield where nations are scoring a series of victories against imperialism In Malaysia a Britishsup ported defense buildup was un der way amid expectations that Indonesia would step up its mili tary campaign against the 1C monthold federation which it charges is a device to perpetu ate British colonialism in South east Asia Malaysia meanwhile served notice on Indonesia that it will repel any act of invasion against Malaysia with any force which is necessary to quell it They apparently referred to re cent border incidents between the two countries SUKARNO NEW dropping is big business The direct maii industry which thrives on names has grown into a bil lionayear industry and is get ting bigger each year despite rising postal costs and an occa sionar ripple of resentment on the part of some people who put unwanted mail on a par with childbeating A littleknown aspect of the direct mail industry is the work done by a handful of what arc known as mailing list brokers There are only 30 or so compa nies in the country which are in the list brokerage business The president of the biggest of these companies is Arthur Mar tin Karl who company Names Unlimited Inc has been sup plying names to customers since 1933 Karl estimates that the list brokerage business has grown to a millionayear business Karl rents lists of names to users charges them to for each thousand names and collects a 20 per cent commis sion for his troubles Like all list brokers Karl has little capital equipment His forte is that of a prospector He knows where to get lists of names he has a pretty good idea of what a company can get out of a given list and he says he has more business now than I can handle Like all of his competitors Karls company is privately held and he declines to say how much volume the company does each year But he admits his company is the biggest as well as the oldest in its field And he says that many US firms are overlook ing a lush source of added rev enue by not renting out their own customer lists Many companies of course do rent their lists Among these are H J Heinz Diners Club Hearst Publications J C Pen ney and TimeLife Inc Karl collects his money by acting as a gobetween for these companies and for list seekers He says he can put his hands on some 1500 different lists and he is paid for knowing which list will be most effective for which client The lists range in size from 25000 names the minimum that Karl rents to 45 million or the names of all those listed in telephone books Naturally Karl is a strong booster of the direct ap proach to selling If you want to reach a national audience you can take a color page in Life magazine It would be a lot cheaper than a direct mail campaign But direct mail does two things that a page adver tisement doesnt For one the prospect himself is identified For another the message is far more private Forest City crash kills Woden The newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors Home Edition VOL 104 MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY JANUARY 4 1945 UOe
