No Counterfeit Values
Will it come to the pass of having censors for
American advertising? Is it any the less
criminal to issue false statements in ads. than
to indulge in purse-snatching on the streets?
Quite often the victim of the street thief gets
her money back. A merchant has no more
moral right to get your money thro' false pre
tense than he has to forge a note or crack a
safe. Isn't that so? And there is a negative
swindle practiced less reprehensible, but still
outside the pale of decent ethics the adver
tising of goods not in stock ("a silly thing
to do." you say. yet 'tis done hy some stores
careless of their future), and the advertising
of articles "just to rope 'em in" (you be
ing the " 'em") while sales-folk arc in
structed to "switch" you to something else
and in effect refuse to sell the bait. There are
no haits here no offer covered by a hook
just a good, hearty feast of palatable, nutri
tious bargains that you'll enjoy today with
out digestive pains on Saturday or later.
