Need More Advertising
To Conquer Depression
New York, June 18. ? Adrertls-1
Ing men must hold themselves at
least partly responsible for the,
depression, Secretary of Agricul
ture Henry A. Wallace told 500
delegates to the 30th annual con
vention of the Advertising Feder
ation of America here tonight.
To fulflll its place In the mod
ern American social atructure, the
secretary said, advertising must
create a demand for goods which
will make unemployment and the
underconsumption of national
The secretary spoke on human
desires and the possibility of their
?tlmulatlon through advertising,
"It seems almost as If dealro
had failed ua In recent years,"
Wallace asserted. "A terrible
thing ? under-consumptlon ? has
?addled upon us.
"That would suggest that ad
vertising has, In ifkrt at least,
Failed. It Is a situation that can
be remedied. I want you to
think whether something can
be done which will agalv stimu
late the human desire for the
thing* which we produce *o that
we can all lire In greater comfort
than ever before and consume the
things which we now hare."
Advertising can and must aid
solution of the problem of un
employment, the secretary said.
It must stimulate people to buy
what they can afford to buy so
that factories can get to work and
provide labor for all.
Wallace suggested a minimum
salary In the United States ought
to be about )2,S00 a year. If all
workers received approximately
that amount, he said, a distribu
tion of wealth would be effected
which would aid In consumption.
Shoot Too High
The secretary criticised "much
of our present advertising" as
aimed only at persona In com
paratively high salary brackets.
The bulk of It, hev thought, should
be aimed at thoee who labor for
a small wage for they constitute
the great bulk of the CDnsumlrfg

Most Thrilling Film Hut's Ever

Breath Taking Thrills ? Dwarf
ing the Halr-Ralsers in "Tar

Hundreds of wild beasts, in
cluding a herd of elephants, near
ly a "hundred lions, a rhinoceros,
(crocodiles, monkeys, gazelles,
wildebeeste, boa-constrictors and
many other rare Jungle specimens
are all in "Tarzan and His Mate"
which comes to the Loulsburg
Theatre, Thursday and Friday,
June 28th and 29th.
The exhilarating thrill of re
lief from the problems of dally
life is offered with a "punch" in
every minute of adventure in
"Tarzan and His Mate," new pic
ture of jungle hazards. Johnny
Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sul
livan are re-united in the new
Based upon the adventures of
the famous fictional character
created by Edgar Rice Burroughs,
the Btory has been developed to
pack even more human drama on
to the screen than did "Tarzan,
the Ape Man," the picture which
broke attendance records at the
atres in all parts of the country.
The new picture has animal
thrill scenes that leave an audi
ence gasping, including such
breath-taking action as a terrific
fight between Weissmuller and a
giant crocodile at a depth of more
than thirty feet under water. A
special camera compartment was
used that brings the spectacle to
within a few feet of the mad com
bat with perfect visibility.
Herds of elephants are Bhown
running amuck among hundreds
of natives on safari for ivory.
Nearly fifty lions are turned loose
among the players for a climax to
the picture that brings a tingling
scalp to every member of the au
A tender love story is woven
through the Jungle thrills provid
ing a concentration of sympathet
ic interest on Weissmuller and
Miss O'Sulllvan that makes each
one of their dangers seem vividly
real. Their action is carried on
from the first of the "Tarzan"
stories in sound with a second
safari of white men attempting
to take hundreds of pounds of
ivory from the sacred burial
ground of the elephants. The ef
forts of "Tarzan" to protect the
ivory and his final success leads
to a smashing climax.
