Why The Redmond Spokesman
The answer is simply this:
The paper prints the local news
(»f the city gives to its readers
the happenings from week to
week, and that is what they
want in a local paper.
Each week The Spokesman is
adding from five to a dozen names
on its subscription list. And
these names come from all over.
In the city, in the county and
from outside territory.
The people want to read of
what is doing in Redmond, the
most widely advertised and best
city in Central Oregon. And
they find out what they want in
the columns of The Spokesman.
Circulation is what makes a
newspaper valuable to the adver
tiser. and in that respect The
Spokesman is valuable alike to
the local advertiser as well as the
advertiser who has something to
sell and wants to reach people
outside of the city and county.
You will make no mistake in
subscribing for The Spokesman
if you want all the news of Red
mond, and advertisers will make
no mistake in using the columns
of the paper if they want to
reach the buying public.
