Hard times mean nothing, to the hen. She

Harder. II it is dry she digs deeper. I Int al

THE COST OF ADVERTISING
Somewhat amusing to the folks who know
is the statement that nationally advertised pro
ducts cost more because so much is spent for
advert isiiig. for a tact, advertising actuallv
makes it. possible for goods to be sold at less
cost. Some figures recently collected bv lr
nard Lichtenberg, formi 1 piesuknt of the A
sociation of National Advertisers, are of especi.d
' .'interest; ;
;:: ,('am)l)ell's Soup is taken as an illustration.
The advertised price of Campbell's Nup is 1J
cents a can. The cost i adwitiMiig a singh
can of Campbell's Soup, according to the figures
of Mr. LKcheiibeig, is ;5b-10l)0ths of one cent
Tlie IK)se-Viles Uiscuit Company savs
that on a ten-cent package the advertising ex
penditure is less than one null.
A Lord Pepperell shirt for Sl.9.1: The
advertising expense at that price is one-thirl
of one per cent or some G-l-lOOOths of a cent.
A five-cent glass of Coca-Cola costs for ad.
vertismig inTG-lOO.OOOths of a cent.
The-Eastman Kodak Company has been a
consistent advertiser, It has built its business
and reduced its cost increased its volume, and
Sjiivett the benefits of its business building to
the public. The Eastman company justifies the
money spent on advertising by saying:
"Savings to the consumers as a. result
of advertising are so many times the
amount of the money devoted to advertis
ing that we think any question of yvasteful
practice is untenable." -. . -
The next time some smart person tries to
sell you an unadvertised product with the argu
ment that you are getting just as good for less
money because of the saving effected by not
advertising quote him some of the figures giv
UNITED WE STAND
Realizing that without uryty the progress
of the community was being retarded, the two
Chambers of Commerce, heretofore in Waynes
ville, have merged, which is a step forward,
The merger of the two organizations does
not in any way mean just the elimination of one
organization. It means.' as we understand it,,
thai the organization will bear the name Way.
nesville Chamber of Commerce and serve the
entire district. Its purpose will be to develop
a greater spirit of neighborliness throughout
the region; to unify our objectives; and to con
solidate our forces. Thus prepared, we shall
be in a position to encourage needed projects.
Under the old set up. this would have been im
possible. Without unity there cannot be progress;
and the lack of progress in a community is most
detrimental. We do not know who will be elect,
ed members of the board of directors, .but we
do know this, that the citizens of this com
munity under no circumstances feel that it is
up to the board to make' a success out of "he
merger it is partly their job but the major
part of" the responsibility rests entirely with
us ami by us we mean you and I.
Both organizations have accomplished
things that at times looked almost impossible.
l!oth had determination and -ideals, but un.
fortunately then. was not enough financial sup.
pot t :o enable them to do all the things they
wanted to do. With the combination of the
organizations, the decrease in operating expens
es, and the knitting together of the ideas d
l h groups, there should be no reason why this
community should not be in the forefront this
coining .season and for all seasons to come:
We have said time and time again that
there is no community that has been blessed, by
nature as this one. and certainly with the pr -gramlhat
is being mapped out. the organization
that we will have here shortly will enable us t
go forward as never before.
Another outstanding feature about the new
set. up is the territory which will be served.
Waynesville cannot go forward alone, neither
can Hazelwood. Lake Junahiska or anv other
town within this section, .but united and all
working towards one definite program there :s
much that can be accomplished, and we believe
that it will be.
Heretofore some citizens have had the idea
that the membership of a chamber of com
merce was composed only ot the older men
The new order of things presupposes that the
younger men, in fact every civic minded per
son should give support whether by contribut
ing financially, or by lending moral support
With these things put into practice, it
.should not be long before this .community will
have accomplished that which even the extreme
optimist does not now dare hope for
THIS THING CALLED KISSING
There is no telling who invented the art of
ki.s.Miig, but its a safe assertion that no other
linentor ever saw his example so universally
adopted or so gosh awfully en loved
Kissing is a pleasure, a habit, an eestacv
a dut, a sin. a crime depending altogether 011
t he circumstances
Kissing a baby is about theweetest kiss,
ing on earth, but it's mighty hard on the baby
He gets such a lot of it. Pretty girls kiss him ;
married women kiss him ; old bachelors kiss him
everybody's doin' it. If he were old enough
to assert himself lie wouldn't stand lor it not
all of it anyway. But then, if he were bigger
no one would care to kiss him
Kissing a girl whose lips are like warm
velvet would be about the niftiest kissing, ex
cept for the fact that 110 one gets to kiss tha?
kinu of girl except raw boys who haven't learn
ed how to ki
Kissing one's wife is about as near perfect
enjoyment as a mere mortal need hope to get
But it's a custom not universally followed- Some
men never kiss their wives. And. of course
some men kiss other men's wives The man
who doesn't kiss his yvife at least ten times a dav
doesn't deserve her. The woman who doesn't
want to be kissed at least ten times a day doesn't
deserve a husband. And yet, if the old man
keeps a quid of cut plug in his jaw, the yvife
who stands for ten kisses a day deserves a halo
and a cushion seat alongside of Job in the Neyv
There are many ways to kiss. A little baby
merely opens its mouth and slobbers. A coy
maiden closes her eyes tight and lets some one
else do the kissing. An old maid ties her lips
into a hard knot and pecks at the victim like a
woodpecker. An old bachelor puckers up and
smacks like the dredge of a steam shovel. Wives
real wives kiss like the lingering clasp of
hands between man friends who know how to
love. And mothers? Ah, mothers kiss like the
soft beating of angel's wings like the soothing
notes of some celestial harp heard through the
twilight like God's benediction whispered over
one's bowed head. Ex.

Th:.i same editor remarked thai lie

About the best one that ha.- come

At the liazeiwood school the chief
recreation seem.s to be marbles and

75 times without missing, even with
"hot peas" is a pooi jumper; and the
l.my who isn't owner of at least a hun

I was fortunate enough to hear, the
chape! program at high school last
Friday morning. The talent shown by
those t 'iking part was somewhat

there are several, who can become out

Not that 1 want to be critical, but
here are some .students that are
inclined to ht, .snobbish towards some
of their clas-srnate.s and school chums.
That indicates the la-ck of dignity.
The political situation in Haywood
county is warming up. There is a
continued increase in enthusiasm, and
unless 1 am badlv mistaken betore
the primary, there will be several
"jolts" to some of the folks who think
things are "sewed up."
One (): two "old timers" are paving
their way to make a fast race at the
last minute- I believe that the sher
iff's race will be in for the thickest
of the battle.
And did you know that perhaps
there will be a "Mrs. on the eounty
ticket this year. Unless present
plans fail, formal announcement will
be made soon; yes, real soon!
Home' Davis has broken the ice
for avnesville township constable,
and Homer is campaigning with as
much enthusiasm and determination
as any politician that ever ran.
