St. Marys TV Coverage Being Widened
or plant.
Last spring and fall, St. Marys do
mestics products were seen on daytime
and nighttime national television game
shows by millions of women during an
eight-week period.
According to subsequent surveys, this
exposure resulted in a markedly in
creased consumer knowledge of the St.
Marys brand.
Freedom Share Sales
Have Been Discontinued
The sale of Freedom Shares savings
certificates was discontinued by the
government after June 30, with none
being issued after that date.
The Fieldcrest Payroll Department
announces that balances remaining in
the Freedom Share account are being
transferred to the regular U. S. Sav
ings Bonds account.
Employees who wish to change their
Savings Bond deductions or bond de
nominations should fill out a new de
duction authorization card to be for
warded to the Payroll Department. The
cards may be obtained from the mill
personnel managers.
For fall 1970, St. Marys will expand
television coverage from eight to 10 net
work shows. NBC and ABC national
network game shows will include To
Tell The Truth, Beat The Clock, Truth
or Consequences, Movie Game, It Takes
Two, What’s My Line, The Newlywed
Game, Concentration, Sale of the Cen
tury, and Let’s Make A Deal.
Scheduled to go on air in September,
the show’s hosts, among them Garry
Moore on the long-playing To Tell the
Truth and Monty Hall on the up-and-
coming Let’s Make a Deal, will talk
about the St. Marys line as they give
away gifts of sheets, pillow cases, blank
ets, bedspreads, automatic blankets and
bath fashions to contestants.
The St. Marys-sponsored shows fill a
total of 224 time slots, giving the pro
duct an estimated exposure of one bil
lion times during the peak fall sales.
By combining the three major media
of radio, television and national maga
zines, the planned fall campaign as
sures an exciting and active season
ahead for St. Marys.
