What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

'- “It is say' fcaa ~ee»vi«ti&a that banks \ can use aewajssper advenr-tiaing with great snoeess,” Mr Morehour.o n&id. ' ’‘NewspaperxB go^iou '•;•■• *.»a> us -by their use as a »««Tan., u.* >;v -•■ a uf a whpie cosamualty u>Uy- i>c i in’ a single day. Because a bank cannot directly trace a large v.alutee of new business it newspaper ..advertising dbetr not prove that the'medium is in­ effective as a basinessebiiUder. “The fact that there are .certain kinds of newspaper advertising which do not produce good results ought not to. brand/the medium as• ineffective, any more than the fact that because a certain booklet or certain buiness- building letter failB to pull .would war­ rant you' in' branding all booklets and all letters as non-prpductiye mediums. Hew to Advertise - \Newspaper advertising must he at­ tractive 'and\ easily read' if tt is to produce good ' results. If the subject preaeutsd 1 b ' not io ihe .poi|ii,.ts too deeply .involved lor tJbeJave'rage mlnd - ' to. grasp really, is too iuil pf big and .. uncoinmoii words,. it i$, only natwral J t£»t it will not be read. If ,bank ad- ■ i vertiBlng/is to accomplish* its purpose i it ahust be very simple. - “DI scubb Only the subjects which , will make it easy for the public to patronize your bank. Advertise your bank, its financial stability, its 'officers, ' directors and stockholders and you will build prestige and strengthen pub­ lic confidence in your institution. Enumerate the various kinds of ser­ vice your bank is prepared' to render. It has -been : my experience that the | public is on the lookout for -:lnfbrma- tlon about banks’, banking methods and the kinds of.service rendered by banks. For quick results I dm a1 firm believer In sticking to subjects which have a direct bearing on banks, bank- / ing methods and service, until the public has become better informed about banks and the wide variety of services rendered by them. A New Plan “If you have not been successful with newspaper advertising try this plan. Confine your advertising within the scope of banking and .^specially enumerate the various services'which Bolt': your bank is prepared to oiler, down every advertisementHo 'one hun­ dred words.-or ie§s;- preferably less. Use headings Vblch arouse interest at a glance. For example, a head ‘IN­ TEREST FROM DATE' will' inspire, action on the part of persons with idle fundB to deposit because interest starts from the time savings accounts are opened. A heading ‘PROTEC­ TION FOR YOUR VALUABLES' will Inspire action on the part of- persons in need of protection.” tata«# by Mr*. 3 , Q.

When you have bees furnished'with .the information-, called .for .‘in this ■ questionnaire, take it * to apy. onçÿof the hanking Institutions in your com­ munity and get its opinion of the stock offered.» If the stock salesman refuBeB ¡lo fill out this questionnaire,’ have nothing more to do with his proposi­ tion, as it is evident that he is foster­ ing a fraudulent promotion.\ r.
