The government spends a great deal
of money during the year to get the
mail distributed properly and the
owners of those delapidated boxes
should see to it that his box is stand

boxes all together the owners should

the government spends this large sum
of money each year for your bene

part in helping them to keep it up

than willing to give you any sugges

any time and is anxious to see every
box standing on a firm foundation
and upright and not leaning away

The world marvels at the growth of
the American telephone system.
Nothing has done more to put tele
phones in practically every American
home, than advertising.
Government owned telephone sys
tems in Europe see no need for ad
vertising. The taxpayer has to covei
deficits, and there is no incentive for
officials to maintain a growing tele
phone business and pay dividends to
hundreds of thousands of stockhold
To show why the American system
grows, it is only necessary to read
some of the advertising of local tele
phone companies. A good illustra
tion is advertising appearing in Mary
land newspapers during a recent
One advertisement appealed to the
young person at school to ring up the
folks at home and keep up the person
al contact. Another, pointed out the
cheer that is brought to parents when
their young people who have gone out
in different walks of life, make a
little “phone visit” instead of mere
ly trusting to an occasional letter.
Y’et another, suggested that a young
person away from home, when con
fronted by problems, gets comfort
and help by ringing up the home for
All the advertising had the human
touch and appealed to every member
of every family. The American tele
phone system grows an« gives the
best and cheapest service in the
world, largely as the result of con
tinuous and intelligent advertising.
