Business, rle. Spec- ialitt at O. S. C. It, in modern to advertbe but much current adverti; ing is not modern, be lieves H. T. Vance, head of the de partment of advertising and selling at Oregon State college. In a ser ies of business institutes held thru out the state Professor Vance K; 'pointing out the vital part advertis ing piays in success, but urging im provement of present methods. A merchant has only three methods of reaching the public personal contact over the counte:, dLplays, I and advertising. Of the three the laiit is the only one that reaches out into the rural districts and be yond to tell the public what the i merchant haa to meet their needs, he says. Much advertising fails to keep abrca t of the modern speed age, finds Professor Vance, while more of it defeats its own purpose by be ing so exeggtratcd that the people 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.
