A merchant has only three methods

Much advertising fails to keep

finds Professor Vance, while more
of it defeats its own purpose by be

fail to believe it.
Methods of improving advertising
listed by this specialist are, be
frank and truthful, undere.timate
ratha than exaggerate, use some ad-1
vcrtishig to "sell" the store as well
as the merchandise, and use local
pictures occasionally as they tell the
truth and avoid ridiculous situations
caused by too many "canned" cuts.
