Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 11, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta Moiiclay, November 11,11)12. THE LKTIIBRIDGE ftACT.Y HKtCALlJ NOVEMBER 11, 1912 Contest Closes one month f rom tp-da The Time Will be Long or Short, According to the kind of Campaign You Are Conducting - December 11 Will Come Very Soon if You Are a Hustler  ONE OF THE FIRST PRIZE OPTIONS THE CANDIDATE HAVING THE HIGHEST VOTE AT THE CLOSE OF THE CONTEST MAY TAKE THIS LARGE BUNCH OP MONEY INSTEAD OF THE COTTAGE, THE AUTOMOBILE OR THE TRIP AROUND THfe WORLD. AccordiuB to the vote on Saturday, a number of the candidates wdro able to Ijold Ihe |>acs. But don't "feed in" your rtservo to keep in the first division. Try 'and get iubacrlpWons from day to day-with some to spare-to use on voting day. . ' Malte a. special effort tomalte u big gatliering of subscriptions during the second period schedule. You have two weeks from today to make the "gath-orini^" The subscriptions you get the next fourteen daya may turn the tide in favor of one of the big prizes. ~ If you have any more h\istIo about you- and you have-now is the time to continue lo show it. Make up your mind with a click and start iu to flnlsh the business at once and finish it right. The field is not covered, for either renewals or new business. . The }ler-aid had 5200 subscribers when the contest was announced. Payments during' the contest have been secured from not over one in each ten of t]ie old subscribers. That's the teccrd on the contest booky. Don't tramp over a lot of territory looking for renewals. Of course, keep rlKht after tho old,"business, but have your "hooks" out tor new sulyscribers while your are doing it. Over a score of the candidates are "stayers." The vote shows that. Then stay with both feet-no half-way business about it. S,wing in with a biR bunch of subscriptions every day until tlio close of the second period schedule-but don't dult then. Let the other candidate quit. Come on with the votes. Do a little better than the others are doing if you want to win a bis prir.e. Don't drift along with a subscription or two a day. COme along with a half a dozen or more at a time, but no matter !io wmnny it la, malce a spurt. One of the candidates �ald yesterday; "I'd like to take a day off, but I can't afford to do'so, because while 1 would be loafing, the other candidates would be getting the votes." Weil, there you are. This contestant has llie proper idea of how to work to win. CAN'T DRIFT TO THE TOP You can't,drift to the top, that's evident. You can't expect others to quit getting votes so that you can pull to tho top with little effort. Tliose contestants wlio are holding good positions intend to" hang on, �nd doni' forget that. Tho only way you can get up where they are Is to crowd ahead of them-pulj them down with votes. Tile contest time is passing. Once you get a good place hang onto to It as long as you can. Of course, we don't undertake to say how many votes It will take to wi'i the. first prize-but that ?1200 solid cash is worth lighting for. After the contest la over many of the candidates wiio did not put forth their best efforts will see v/here they could have won. It will be too late then. NOW is the time to work. SECOND VOTE PERIOD After all, tho reduction in the voting schedule is not so very great when it is taken into consideration tliat flie contest has sained such an impetus More people are watohiug the progress ot candidatcj, and subscriptions will come easifer than at the beginning. 'I'ti'o records cf competitions conducted by the manager of this affair show that tiie bulii of the votes are secured during the latter part of the contest. The reading public, to whom the can- j didntes naturally appeal for support, got w'arined up to tho occasion and lend V their help more readily at tho close than at tiie beginning of a contest. An-. '4 other thing, the candidates with the nec&3gary "backbone" that constitute* i> really popular people-the stayers and the stickers-are to tho fore during"'' the closing weeks, and patrons of the paper can easily see where to place ' ' their votes-where they will do the most good, of course. In a recent contest a young girl who was competing for a Shetland pont outfit spoke of the length of the contest. VBut" said the contest manager.' "just think how long the winners will have the ponies." "Yes," she came right back, "but think of the long time the ones who do not win will be with-' out ponies." The moral is-Do your best to win a good prize while the opportunity is here.
