The whole plan and program was a
happy thought inspired by the spirit
of Christ, and will be far-reaching in
its results. It is" greater than a
school, a convention, or an institute.
It is a council of great and good
minds meeting in different groups of
ten days each, preparing for the
large task of conserving the good
that has come out of the world war.
The plan is to make this a safe world
to live in and to help the returning
soldier to fit into the great scheme of
better Christian citizenship and to do
his bit in this immense task of re reconstruction

principles. The aim is to help every
strata of humanity the rich, the
poor, the white, the black, the for

We deplore the false impressions
that are being circulated in various
sections of the country in regard to
certain phases of ths Y. M. C. A.
work overseas. After careful inves
tigation it is our deliberate judgment
that the Y. M. C. A. work overseas
is being misrepresented, and we ask
the people who hear such adverse
statements not to be hasty in form
ing conclusions nor in expressing
opinions until they receive fuller in
formation on the subject.
We heartily commend the whole
Blue Ridge plan for training young
people from our colleges and high
schools in Bible study, for Christian
leadership in colleges, in missionary
efforts and in various kinds of Chris Christian
tian Christian work. We recommend that our
people arrange to send their sons and
daughters to the various student con conferences

women, where they may receive in inspiration

about periodical advertising
Have You Really Seriously Considered
and Appreciated this Business Force?
By periodical advertising, we refer to the use of space in magazines, newspapers or farm papers,
presenting in that space, by means of words and pictures, the reasons why your product or products
should be bought by readers of the publication selected to carry your message.
In asking you whether you have really seriously considered
and appreciated this business force, we have in mind the
thousands upon thousands of manufacturers who are daily
increasing their business by this method to a degree greater
in magnitude and at a cost less in proportional expense than
through any other possible medium.
We have in mind that practically every big and progressive
business institution in the United States is a periodical
We have in mind that the "little fellows" of a few years
back, who today are fast becoming predominant and pre preeminent
eminent preeminent in their field, are no longer little because they did
consider and appreciate periodical advertising.
Why should these things be?
The buyer of any product selects the brand he or she knows
best or thinks to be best at the price he or she is willing to
It pay-It is therefore obvious that the task presented to the manu manufacturer
facturer manufacturer in order to produce the greatest number of sales is
one of creating such an impression in the minds of the great greatest
est greatest possible number of ultimate consumers.
The function of advertising is the accomplishment of that
task, whether it be word of mouth advertising from con consumer
sumer consumer to consumer; booklets, folders, circular letters, etc;
dealer literature; propaganda through salesmen or period periodical
ical periodical advertising direct to the consumer. All are forms of
advertising. All arc good. All should be used.
The point we want to make is that periodical advertising
should not be overlooked, because it is the most inexpensive
the most effective and the surest way to insure the
greatest possible results from all forms of advertising used
as well as from itself.
It is the most inexpensive because it enables you to talk to
more people rt a less cost than any other method of publicity.
This is easily proved. Even suppose you send out 1 0,000
circulars under lc postage. The cost in postage alone would
Through periodical advertising you can reach io.ooo people
with an advertisement the size of a letterhead ( 1 1x854")
in almost any periodical for less than $50. As a matter of
fact, in many newspapers the cost would be less than $20
Consider that fact seriously. You will appreciate it if you
do. You will appreciate it because it is logical ; because it is
sound business judgment to buy products of equivalent
value at the lowest possible price.
Again, when you appeal to the ultimate consumer through
periodical advertising, your message is actually being paid
for by the reader. The reader, of his own free will, buys the
publication containing your message. Buys it for only one
purpose to read, and to enjoy and profit by reading.
That's the attitude of mind of the consumers when they
read your message and consider, through what other
channel can you reach your ultimate consumers when they
are in as receptive a mood.
Again, a periodical is read by several people other than the
buyer. Statistics indicate that at least three individuals will
read a publication before it is destroyed.
Again when the public reads an advertising message in a
publication he or she has been educated to appreciate that
the story is true or it would not have been accepted for
publication by the periodical.
Sir, these are but a few of the most pertinent facts why
periodical advertising wields such a tremendous business
force. There are many other reasons ; reasons peculiar to
your particular business and it is the opportunity to explain
fully that prompts this advertisement of advertising.
There is no "canned" plan of successful advertising. Your
problems are different from those of other manufacturers!
and what you should do can only be decided by study and
