Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
A SIX SECOND NEWSPAPER AD? It just doesn't exist! Some folks in the electronic advertising business would have you believe that newspaper readers are an average lot, will skim through their daily paper and only spend an average of six seconds with each page. This isn't so.and never will be. Statistics show that the more intelligent and educated a person, the more time will be spent reading newspapers. Newspaper readers are highly selective: When they buy houses they read house ads, when they buy clothes they read clothing ads, when they buy food, they read food ads, when they buy cars, they read car ads, etc. They take all the reading time they need to make an intelligent decision on what to buy and where to shop. When it's shopping time, folks spend more time reading YOUR AD! PROVE IT? We just did! You spent 35 to 45 seconds just reading this ad! but take your time, read it again if you like, this ad will not disappear! Lethbridge Herald Circulation is at an all time record high! Where Your Tax Dollar Goes KONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OtIT HEALTH. 298% IWELFAIE 23.1% SPENDING BILLION BILLION 1965-66 1974-75 Spending the tax dollar The Canadian government will spend an esti- mated billion dollars m the fiscal year that started April 1, compared with an expenditure of billion 10 years ago. The graph shows how the tax dollar is divided among government programs and how prior- ities have changed in the 10-year period. In 1965-66, 20.1 per cent the total expenditure went to de- fence In 1974-75, the department will spend million more than it did 10 years ago but will account for only 10.7 per cent of the total expen- diture. The largest increase m spending is on health and welfare. In 1974-75, almost one-third of govern- ment spending will be on health and welfare pro- grams, which includes family allowances, unemploy- ment insurance contributions and hospital in- surance payments to the provinces. Expenditures will account for billion, compared with billion in 1965-66. The next biggest slice of the tax dollar goes to pay interest and other charges on the public debt. A little over 12 cents of every 1974-75 tax dollar will go to programs designed to stimulate and support Canada's economic develop- ment. The programs include regional development, agriculture research and subsidies and nuclear power plant developments.
