Just as a lover would im- peril his spit were he to suspend, his wooing for three months, so does Ihe manufacturer lose per- haps forever much of what he has gained at great cost when he interrupts his wooing of the favor of the public. The manufacturer who sus- pends his advertising for the hot weather months is extravagant in the extreme. A suspension of summer advertising is much the same as giving a sales staff a three months' vacation, and leaving'.their customers to write in for w'hat they may need, or to give their orders to competitors who have not relaxed their sell- ing efforts. sales agent whose work is real, posi- tive, and perceivable though its influenced and results in any given month may not be immediately calculable.
