Lloyd Stephenson, auctioneer at
E. L. Dudley’s Big-4 Warehouse,
about it yesterday "There’s no
reason in the world,” pointed out
Lloyd, “Why Dunn shouldn’t be a
15 or 20-million-pound market. The
tobacco is here. All we have to do is
to get our own people to sell it on
their home market.”... Local to
bacco men, as well as others, blame
lack of enthusiastic support from
local citizens for the fact the mar
ket hasn't grown still faster..
Local business men support the
market all right, but not in an all
out manner in the way they should

Point—As We’ve pointed out be
fore, it pays to shop in your own
town before gbing away—lt wou.d
also pay local business firms to do
more advertising and let the people
know what they have ...Just by
accident, more or less, we dropped
into the Town Bock Shelf heri
about a month ago and looked
around.. .We were amazed at the
things you can fipd in that wonder
ful little shop owned and operated
by Miss Fannie Belle Smith... For
years. The Daily Record has been
buying art supplies out of town.. .
One night we spent a solid hour
trying to find out the name of an
art supply store in Raleigh... And
then we found that Miss SmLh
carries a complete line of art sup
plies—everything from brushes, oils
and paints to those new paint-it
by-the number sets She carries
a good line of sheet music, records
—popular, classical and hillbilly—
other musical supplies, books, sta
tionery, gifts, novelties of all sorts 1 ,
and literally hundreds of items that,
you ordinarily would expect to find
only in larger cities She has a
machine for lettering and mono
graming names on pencils, stati
onery. luggage ancf other items . .
We were delighted to find that
Dunn has such a store as this.
POINTS UP NEED—We are hap
py to give Miss Smith this free
plug for two reasons—first, she de
serves it; second, it illustrates so
well what so many Dunn stores are
missing by not advertising and let
ting people know what they 5e11...
For example, we know scores of
people who go out of towm to buy
Van Heusen shirts, Nelly Don and
Gay Gibson dresses, and hundreds
of other nationally-advertised lihes
simply because local stores don’t
advertise them and they have no
way of knowing they’re available
here... The average person doesn't

know who they are too —by the

They kftow full well but shut their
eyes to the fact that all the big
successful retailers are large and
consistent newspaper advertisers
. They slap success right in the
face... They know, for instance,
that the world's most successful re
tailer, Sears and Roebuck, spends
83 per cent of its entire advertising
budget of about 14 million dollars
annually in daily newspapers
The ratio is about the same with
Macy’s Glmbels, Marshall Fields
and the others. Yet, they try to
argue with success and tell you
how they use some other Inferior
means of advertising We Wonder
if they’re really trying to fool
themselves or what—after all, they
have their money invested in those
businesses.. Why shouldn’t they
try to grow and make a maximum
profit? After all, we want them
to grow We realize that the suc
cess of this newspaper depends on
the success of our advertisers..
The future of our town depends
upon whether our business firms
are progressive or complacent ...
A young business man who recently
moved to town sized it up this way:
"As I see it,” he said, “some of the
nqw and young business men either
don’t have the money to be pro
gressive or have no spirit of adven
ture or willingness to take a chance,
and some of the older ones have
already made so much money they
don’t care.”... He may be partly
right ...However, we think the
business men in Dunn, certainty |
most of them, are just as progres-1
sive and far-sighted as those in
any other town.... Some of them
have fallen victim to propaganda,
of course, but they can be forgiven
for that We’re mighty proud of
our merchants and want them all
to do well.. And, with pardonable
pride, may be remind you again
that Dunn is one of less than 4J
towns In the entire State that can
boast of a daily newspaper and
the only town In the entire South
the size of Dunn that can boast of
a newspaper as large as The Daily
