Program Advertising Absolutely Worth
Fayetteville, Feb. 19.—Seting what
is believed to be a precedent for local
entertainment, the promotion com
mittee of the American Legion voted
unanimously against framing a program
with advertising for the fortneoming
production of "Kick In,” the gripping
drama which will be staged at the high
school uditorinm on February 26.
It was the consensus of opinion in the
committee that program advertising i*
absolutely worthless and the members
' went on tecortl as staying that suck
schemes only bled the merchants and
caused more ill-will against local enter
taining enterprise than anything else.
The committee will prepare a single
page program of the play, printed on
. one side, for the convenience of the
, patrons. No freewill contributions will
I be asked in the form of worthless spaee
buying and the show -will stand on its
merits. - *9
