MANY FISH TO
Start Name Contest
The Conway company which took
over the local creamery this week, is
starting a name contest in the county
with the desire to get a suitable name
for the new dairy products company
Several names have been suggested
but they hav
already been copy
righted by other companies hence can
not be used.
The company is offering a cash
prize of $25 for the best name for the
new company, the name to be selected
by the heads of the company. This
provision will not lessen the chances
of the contestants as Mr. Conway
stated yesterday that everyone in the
company had exhausted their inven
tive faculties in an effort to choose a
name without success.
The only conditions attached to the
choice are that the name must be sug
gestive of dairy products but cannot
be descriptive of them as such names
cannot be copyrighted.
No one is
barred so all our readers should get
busy and endeavor to win the $25.
The contest will close on June 1 and
in case two or more hand in the name
chosen the prize will go to the one
which is received first, or divided if
two or more giving the chosen name
shall arrive on the same mail.
