WHEN COLUMBUS and his caravels returned f rom
the New World, the first question shouted from the
shore was, “What's the news?"
That’s always the question, oi paramount impor-
tance. Years ago folks asked it of the post rider, the
soldier returned from the wars, the man who had been
down to the settlements, or the neighbor back from
the general store.
Today, you find the answer in your newspaper.
Throug'h the newspapers the news of the world and of
the community quickly becomes public knowledge.
And remember this—it takes two kinds of news to
make a modern paper complete.
The first tells of happenings near and far—of fir-
es, sports, elections, accidents, marriages, deaths,
great men, great events.
The second tells of things you eat, wear and use—
things you buy, things being sold to your friends and
neighbors. This news is advertising.
It’s just as important to keep up to date on the
advertising in this paper as it is to read about what’s
doing in the world of events.
Advertising is an essential news service. It is dis-
tinct lly to your advantage to be guided by it.
