A comprehensive program of ad-
vertising and publicity to call the
attention of Brownsville to the
attention of the world at large
and shippers and business men in
general is being mapped by the
Brownsville chamber of commerce
according to G- C. Richardson
Richardson Saturday issued a
statement asking all residents to
write to their friends acquaint-
ances and business associates and
to call attention to the Browns-
ville port as an opening wedge.
Interest Wide-Spread
“Due to the location of Browns-
ville on the Mexican border to
its historical background when
ships formerly plied the Rio
Grande and to other similar fac-
tors there will be more than the
ordinary amount of interest in this
port project.
The Brownsville chamber is
preparing to capitalize on this tn-
lereat by sending articles to news-
papers. magazines and other puo-
ic at ions throughout the country '
Richardson called attention to
the fact that much interest m the
port here has been shown by the
mine owners and manufacturers m
northern Mexico and said that
communications would be sent to
Varied Program
The general program to let the
world know that Brownsville is to
income a seaport Includes prepar-
ation of booklets and folders a
considerable amount of letter writ-
ing personal calls feature articles
for newspapers and magazines ana
the like.
The preliminary work along this
line was done two years ago oy
the chamber when it seemed likely
that the port was to be built ari
it will be taken up where it was
left off.
