ONE SMALL CATCH There is only one dark spot In the picture. Gambling is Illegal in the Philippines, The casinos flourish thanks to an elaborate and extensive sys- tem of payoffs to local and na- tional officials. Informed ob- servers estimate the payolfs total more than million a year. Defence Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile says he knows nothing about such payoffs. After a recent newspaper col- umn about the payoff system, soldiers carried out a series of harrassing show raids that did little to slow the gambling oper- ations. In fact, the casinos have been effectively closed only once, in 1971, just before an election in which Enrile was running for senator. Enrile lost the election and after nearly four months, the soldiers who had been guarding the casinos and hold- ing them closed went back to their barracks.

Panoloc by Lethbridge Glass HOW TO WRITE A GOOD WANT AD Each year, Canadians spend more than million on classified want ads. They may be funny, sad, sober. But all have one goal: resells. To help you be successful, the June Reader's Digest gives the following rules, gleaned frcm experts who have spent years studying classified advertising. Think before you print. Too frequently, want ads are placed on an impulse, with litlle advance consideration. If possible, write your ad and check it over the next day before submitting H. Give some thought lo where lo place the ad. A buyer won't go far oui of his own area to make such a purchase. One big advantage of a want ad is that you are on a one-to-one basis with your reader. "Visualize your prospect and show him with your ad that what you advertise can satisfy his particular says Guy Ramsey, newly retired advertising manager of The Toronto Star which has Canada's biggest classified section and printed more than two million ads in 1971. Concentrate on the reader's problems: don't tell him yours. A phrase such as "owner must sell" influences no one the buyer couldn't care less. 'The secret of writing a good want ad is to put yourself in ihe reader's says Reg Hobson, classified adverising manager of the Ottawa Citizen. "Tell him everything he wants lo know about the article advertised." Being clear, simple and specific is more imporant than being clever, espe- cially in real estate advertising. "'People interested in a house are making as serious a personal decision as they will ever make, both financially and emo- says a Montreal Star booklet for advertisers."
