CAN’T AEFORD IT
The other day a merchant said
he couldn’t afford to advertise in
his home newspaper. I f the man’s
view s w ere not distorted, he would
see that he couldn’t afford not to
advertise. Refusing to advertise
is his most expensive extrava
gance. The same merchant will
spend hours telling o f the “ u nfair”
competition o f mail-order houses
who are his most aggressive and
dangerous competitors, y et the
methods employed by mail-order
houses that succeed are the very
ones that the merchant refuses to
use. The mail-order house first
