Here is something to think
about after the war is over. It is
a letter from Lord Dunsany, writ-
ten to a friend in New York some
thee in 1918. The poet says, *‘I
shall be very glad to sit in front
of a fire, as you promise, with
you and your friends and eat ap-
ples. Would it not be too bad if
the greater part of mankind had
been made so restless by these
restless years that they could only
feel at ease sitting by burning
cities. How shall vpe easily turn
from those hills and places of
vantage whence we watched for
the ruin of empires, to see simply
once more those little beneficent
things, of which the happiness of
men and children w*a made, in
the days before the artillery al-
tered the shape of the hill*?”
HOLD ON TO ADVERTISING
These are not strictly selling
days. A priority in the purchas-
ing department is something much
more desirable than a prospect in
the sales manager’s office.. But
this should not lead the American
business roan, on whom the fate
of the world now depends, to for-
sake the ways that made America
great. He should continue to keep
mining through advertising.
Advertising may change some
from an emphasis on moving
goods from the shelf "toward a use
of the printed word to keep peo-
ple and prospects informed. Th*
is a real wheelhorse duty of ad
vertising and a most important
on*. Others will find in advertis-
ing the ideal opportunity to build
morale through a challenging
message of vision and hope. Ad-
vertising built a great America.
It must do its part to defend it.

Uncle Sam Needs You Too
In the present emergency, every department of national
transportation is needed to care for any unforseen circum-
stance which might disrupt the present flow of traffic and
vital materials necessary to the pfeople of the country as well
Some time ago, truck owners received a card asking for
information as to their equipment, etc., asking that this in-
formation be given so that a survey could be made to accur-
ately estimate the facilities which could be depended upon
along this line of transportation should the need arise for
It has been brought to our attention that a very small per
cent of truck owners completed their forms and returned
them to the proper authority. - _
This is no time to waste breath or make necessary several
requests when time is important. , „ .
All of us, regardless of what we do, are depended upon for
some service. We may not have trucks but we have cars and
we may lose them to the army should the need arise. We
-have facilities now which can care for everything we need
in the transportation line, but if some unforseen emergency
comes, every kind of transportation may be important in
more ways than you imagine now.
If you have not completed the form asked for regarding
your truck equipment, do so. Time is important, our nation
is important, and its people are important. There is no time
for further delay or unnecessary letter writing and talking.
Do it now, and not tomorrow. If you do not have the forms,
you may secure them from the office of the county judge.
Tomorrow may not be too late, but it may cause a one day
delay later which could have been avoided. Your countpr
is looking to you for as much support as you can give. As
Americans it will be given without further delay.________________
